Since my high school years I've always loved walking with friends. We used to walk on the boardwalk at night, then grab a snack, or hang out at someone's house. Walking in the summer evenings was a great way to move our bodies (I wasn't fitness centric then, though) and relieve the stress of those … Continue reading Miles go by faster with friends.
For over six months now, Chris and I have been trying to get a company to show up and remove a huge Oak tree in our backyard. For most people, it's pretty simple. Call and get a few estimates then book someone to remove the tree. Well, not for us. This tree was located in … Continue reading Outdoor Project: Tree Removal
I'm not sure! Over the past few years, I've ebbed and flowed in my desire for side hustles vs. second jobs, and back again. I've decided to pull back hours on one of my second jobs, to pick up more side hustle hours, to now picking up another second or third job or fifth place … Continue reading How many Second Jobs or Side Hustles are too many?

After 5 months of Crossfit, my body was in a lot of pain, I was having a lot of difficulties completing even scaled workouts and sticking within their time caps. I hurt my shoulder … Continue reading I quit Crossfit.
This fall has been a whirlwind of one thing after another. Such is how it goes once the school year starts. We have been plugging away at work, working out at Crossfit, and keeping our household running smoothly. I don't always have the motivation to write like I used to, as I'm trying to find … Continue reading Recusing Baby Birds

Remember that time I said I wasn't going to work at my second job anymore? Well, that only lasted not even a semester, whoops! I tried my best not to pick up shifts during the fall semester last year in 2018. I managed to make it to November, but they needed help and I felt … Continue reading Every Day I’m Hustlin’
I mentioned in my recap of our cruise that we had a lot of fun on scooters around Bermuda. While I have ridden scooters in Bermuda before, it was Chris' first time and he absolutely loved it! For years now, I've said to Chris I wanted to save up to get a Vespa or something … Continue reading So, Scooters happened.
