Currently, Vol 5

Sunday, October 12, 2014

Anticipating: This weekend's camping trip in Kentucky. This has turned into an annual thing that we do with two other couples every year in Kentucky because it's equal distant for all of us.

camping and sailing trip October 2013

Thankful For: Bestie time! I'm currently in Mississippi with my bestie, Melissa.

We've mostly spent the weekend eating and talking. We also watched The Fault in our Stars because my husband refused to watch it with me.

Loving: These mystery flowers that all the interior designers received at work. We don't know who they are from because no one will admit to it!

I've read so much this week!
The Millionaire Next Door, a study of America's millionaires. The authors claim that the average millionaire doesn't drive a flashy car or have a huge house. The average millionaire became a millionaire by being very frugal. The over-consuming American who has 3 cars, 2 homes, and a boat is most likely in huge debt and not a millionaire.

Total Money Makeover. I listened to this during the car ride to Mississippi. I think everyone should read it!

Big Little Lies. I had a hard time getting into this book.

The Hypnotist's Love Story. LOVED this book! I couldn't put it down!

Missing: Even though I'm having lots of fun on my girls weekend, I'm missing my two loves:

Linking up with Joyful Life

  1. I haven't see The Fault in Our Stars yet! I didn't LOVE the book but I'm still hoping to see the movie soon!

  2. Yes, I love the total money makeover book! I think everyone should read it...I actually probably need to read it again. haha! I also like his radio show. It really makes you think about where your money goes.

  3. This all sounds so fun! Glad you got to spend a little time in Mississippi! I read The Millionaire Next Door several years ago, and it definitely changed the way I thought about\judged certain things.

  4. the camping trip sounds fun.
    love your paper flower bouquet

  5. Awww. Yay for girls weekend. Those are always much needed!

  6. Your dog looks so sweet! We are hoping to get one soon :-) Fun post - thanks for sharing!

  7. Thank you Hena! The paper flowers were one of my favorite parts of our wedding!

  8. I agree Megan! I never considered that most of the over-consumers in America with flashy things are usually in debt!

  9. Chelsea, I just started listening to his radio show while I was driving home from Mississippi, and I loved it! I think everyone should read the money makeover, especially newlyweds!

  10. This was my first girls weekend since getting married, and it was wonderful! Several people thought it was strange that my husband didn't come with me on the trip, but I thought it was perfectly normal to do separate trips after getting married!

  11. Thanks Molly, he is a precious dog! I didn't see a blog listed in your profile. Do you have one?

  12. Whoops! Yes - Simply M Photography!

  13. How did you like the Fault in Our Stars? I can't wait to watch it. I really enjoyed the book. And, wow, you read fast!! That's a very impressive reading list for one week!

  14. I loved the book!!! The movie followed the book pretty closely, so I thought it was a great movie.
