Life Update, 10 Spectacular Things Happening Right Now, and My November Goals

Life Update, 10 Spectacular Things Happening Right Now, and My November GoalsHello everyone and happy Friday! Today’s post will be a mix of everything going on in my life. We’ll start off with a short life update, 10 Spectacular Things Happening Right Now, and then my November goals.

October was a fun and relaxing month. I was able to work a good amount, have some fun, and enjoy life. October also marked one full year since I left my day job and I had an expensive dinner out (thanks to a gift card we were given, of course!) with Wes to celebrate.

In October, I went indoor rock climbing for my very first time. I also bought a membership at the rock climbing gym because I became so addicted to it. We’ve gone nearly every other day, and it’s a hobby I already can tell I will love for a very long time.

Rock climbing is a lot of fun, but it’s definitely expensive in the beginning. We’ve had to buy rope, harnesses, helmets, climbing shoes, and a lot more. REI has been our best friend recently. It’s a ton of fun though so we are finding it well worth it.

We plan on trying some outdoor climbing later this month. We have plans for Joshua Tree, and if everything goes as planned then we will be visiting there soon. This is pretty crazy to think about because just a few weeks ago I was terrified of climbing. It’s crazy how quickly that fear has passed! [Read more…]

October Goals and Life Update – Root Canal Fun

October Goals and Life UpdateHello everyone and happy Friday!

September was another great month. It was a great traveling month, a great business month, and St. Louis had great weather all month long.

We spent one week in Colorado at the end of August/beginning of September and it was great. It snowed on us while we were there, but it was still a lot of fun. Wes was able to climb a few 14ers and I was able to do some work for a Colorado client of mine.

We also spent a little less than one week in New Orleans for FinCon. You can read my FinCon recap over on DiversifiedFinances.com. The conference was great and I already bought my ticket for next year. Will you be going to FinCon15?

The weather in St. Louis has been pretty wonderful too. It’s been a nice 80 to 85 degrees everyday with low humidity. Loving it!

September Goals and Life Update – I’m Ready For Fall

September Goals and Life Update

It was National Dog Day the other day, so here’s an old picture of my pup and my laptop. Some of my favorite things in life!

Hello everyone and happy Friday!

This month’s goals update is a little early, but I figured I’d get a somewhat early start and think about my goals sooner rather than later.

Even though August isn’t over yet, it has been a good month so far. Nothing really happened this month. It was a relaxing month and I’m always all for that.

I’m more excited for September though. We have two trips planned for September, and the weather will be much nicer than August. I also love fall and the clothing that goes along with it. I’m ready for boots and sweaters!

It’s been a VERY hot month for St. Louis so far.

With the heat index, the temperature has been around 110 to 120 degrees each day for much of this month. Pairing the hot weather with the disgusting humidity that St. Louis has, it means I haven’t been outside too often lately. [Read more…]
