Enjoy Pinterest | Prints + Images


I don't think my favorite blog posts on other people's blogs are the "Here are some of my Pinterest pins!" posts.  I'm kind of like "Well, if I wanted to know what is on your Pinterest, I'd look there."  So I don't know why I'm posting this Pinterest post?  I'M A HYPOCRITE? Okay?  ;)

I actually feel bloody attractive in my giant-to-my-knees-hoodie and giant-past-my-knees-basketball-shorts.  Especially if I haven't shaved in a bit!

Not to go all rambly about money and careers, but gracious is this true.  I'm learning to love those things in life that cost nearly nothing.  We recently took the Dave Ramsey Financial Peace course.  Our biggest "change" in lifestyle is the way we spend, especially on food.  Caleb and I don't live together, but practically every night after work, a shower and a change of clothes, he comes over to my house for dinner.  Our goal is about $1.75 per meal per person, making the monthly food budget $150 (each).  It's so much fun to try to meet this goal.  I think the process is even more fun than the results!  It makes eating out a huge treat; one that we feel like we've really earned and are ever-so-blessed by.  It's not for everyone, but it's helped to enjoy simplicity and not be as fearful about "will we be able to afford next month?"

  1. I LOVED this post. :) So fun! And those illustrations are some of my favorites -- I just adore that style. It's so interesting to see how our pinterests can reflect us (well, duh. but y'know...;)

  2. BOOYAH for Dave Ramsey. Bc of his Total Money Makeover book, we have been totally rockin' out the finances in the last 9ish months. And yay for little tiny food budgets (it's even better when you get married and save more $ on food!) :) Definitely makes us enjoy our little $2 ice cream that we get to celebrate something.. or the rhubarb tart i make from my $.75 worth of farmer's market rhubarb. :D

    But I love those quote pictures. They're yummy food to my eyes.
    And speaking of food, sounds like you two have a good plan. Frugality win. :)
