Saturday is here yet again…

Happy Saturday everyone! This has been one crazy week, and it’s only going to get crazier.

Between working full-time as a financial analyst, blogging, all of my side income hustles, being a great dog-momma, being a good significant other, all while maintaining a house and trying to have a social life, I feel like it is all starting to catch up with me. But what do I do? I add more to my plate. Oh well, I am happy!

Currently, I have a future business venture being planned with a friend. I will share that with you eventually, but since we are only in the planning stages right now, I kind of don’t want to jinx myself. We’ve always joked about eventually doing this, but recently we decided that we should be serious since it is a dream of ours. We have plenty of experience in the area and since I work in business valuation/mergers & acquisitions, I have TONS of knowledge in starting and managing a business. We worked together for a long time and have always gotten along, so I’m looking forward to this.

I also have tons of other things to do as well this weekend. My to-do list is about a mile long, maybe even longer. I have so many ideas for blog posts, I really need to sit down this weekend and start typing them out before I forget everything. Hope you’re looking forward to several posts about blogging, weddings, paying off student loans, and buying a new house. Oh yeah and lots of posts about the new idea that I have :)

Posts from my blog: – Wow just realized there are lots of “How To” posts this week

    LOL, LOVE your "porn for women" picture! Thanks for the giggle :-). I remember one time hubby went walking down a busy city street with baby #3 in the stroller, and boy, did he get hit on. :-) Have a great Sunday, Michelle!
