Weekly Money Check-Up

( photo credit via My Pretty Pennies)

 1. The most I’ve spent this last week was on a vacuum cleaner! My mother-in-law found a good deal on them, and knew we'd been looking for one, so she called up Peanut and asked him if we wanted it. He checked with me and said YES! It's a $500 vacuum that we got for $273. We brought it home and promptly vacuumed every surface in the apartment. It's amazing!

2. Today I am thankful for Peanut. We just had a lovely, wonderful weekend and I'm so very happy to be married to him.

3. Money can’t buy happiness. One free thing I did last week that made me happy was watch the movie Tangled in a city park.

4. I will consider this week a success if I make it to two yoga classes. This might be a cheat, since I've already been to one, but that means I only have to go to one more to make it a win!

5. This time last year I was planning our wedding! How much has changed in a year - job changes, cross-country move, we now own a grown-up vacuum cleaner.


  1. Yoga, a movie in a city park, a clean and vacuumed floor .... hooray for the simple joys in life!

  2. I went without a vacuum for a few years and it was terrible. I resorted to picking the lint out of the carpet by hand.

  3. Didn't know it's only been less than a year you've been married. They way you write it seems like you've been together an eternity.
