July Budget Recap

Summer is coming to an end and hopefully my crazy spending is as well! I've been pretty good when it comes to clothing, but eating out has been a struggle. Check out what I spent in July on food and clothing, and I'm also talking about my thoughts on purchasing home decor and furniture.

Family Beach Vacation | South Padre Island

I was so excited to visit South Padre Island for the very first time, and it was also Walt and Whitney's very first trip to the beach! If you aren't familiar with the area, South Padre is about 6 hours south of Austin and only 30 minutes from the border of Mexico. Come along as I share where we stayed, what activities we enjoyed, and where we ate!

June Budget Recap

First off, we sold our home! If you're new here, we bought our current home before we had sold our original home. It took longer than expected but it's done and we are rich...j/k. We did profit almost $100k on the sale and only owned the house 5 1/2 years, but we are putting that money towards our new home, maxing our kid's college funds for the year, paying off our debt (minus the van) and saving the rest. After we signed Alex went straight to the Toyota dealership to buy himself a truck, but I threatened him to WALK AWAY, haha! We are both spenders but know we have to save and be financially smart so we can set our family up for success.

Check out what we spent in June on eating out, home decor and clothing!
