Hi. My name is Jordan and I’m a technoholic. I am addicted to my phone mostly, but really an addiction is an addiction so what does it matter? I justify this addiction all day long because it’s my “job” as a blogger to be immersed in social media and the web…right? Sure, just like a
Don’t miss anything!
Photo source Part of my personal challenge to get Focused in ’14 includes getting strong. Last year I was focused on losing my baby weight after having Beck (if you remember my 10lb challenge). This year it’s to actually do my body good and fix what’s ailing me (all my aches and pains and woes)
It’s January 4th. Raise your hand if you set killer-amazing New Year’s Resolutions this year! (ooh me! me! pick me!). Now, raise your hand if you’ve already crashed and burned off the bandwagon and feel like a total failure! (…crickets…) Hopefully not many of you. Let’s call it like it is – the reality is
What if your 5th grader were to raise their own money to travel abroad to do service? What types of skills would they learn? How much more mature would they become? What if you 12th grader spent time learning about other countries and managing their way around the world before heading to college? Would they
You know those moments in life when you’re struck dumb? Those “Aha!” moments, if you will? Well, I had one of those at church on Sunday. I was listening to a talk (like a mini sermon) that was given by the Bishop of our ward (the leader of my local church branch), who also happens to be our good
Bubba and I (and the kids) pulled off an epic sub-for-santa this year. I took pictures and keep reciting in my head exactly how I want to blog/tell you all about it…but I can’t. We chose to do it anonymously and the problem with blogging is…you just never know who is reading! It’s killing me.
Need I say more? Well said, Suz, well said.
Yesterday we covered Part I of the “How much to spend on your kids for Christmas” 3-part series. Today it’s time for Part II…the “WHY” of it all (P.S check out Part III when you’re done with this one). Yesterday we discussed how to avoid going into the “unnecessary” territory when buying gifts (overspending on
I’m a choir nerd. It’s true. I was in two different choirs in high school including a jazz group. I even won a soloist award at a jazz competition in Canada. (No really guys, I’m the most random person ever.) I love music for the feelings it can create in us. So naturally I couldn’t
Seeing as how it’s the formal day of the giving of thanks in our country today, I thought I’d pop in quickly and tell you 10 things I am grateful for…that might just surprise you. This exercise was a fun challenge I gave to myself to help me stop the mundane, and look beyond the
3.5 years ago we hardly had money to pay our bills. We had $10,000 debt on just one credit card. I was a new SAHMom and Bubba had a new business & wasn’t bringing home much of a paycheck. We looked at each other and decided we wanted a better life for ourselves; for our
source I have often used the anology of how diet, weight-loss, and fitness are just like budgeting, frugality, and managing your money. In fact, that’s the ENTIRE premise of my Frugality Boot Camps! (Which, stay tuned…FBC 2014 will be announced soon!! EEEK!) I started using this analogy because for myself first, but then quickly learned that
