One of my goals for this year is to step up my side-hustle game. I have a full-time job so I hope that by reporting monthly on my progress, I'll stay motivated.

I would love to escape the cubicle and do something adventurous for a little while. Your Twenties Are The Time To Take Risks I mean, when is a better time in your life to … [Read more...] about Did I Waste My Twenties or Did I Beast Them?
The tally is in! The bad news is that we missed our goal of having a $10,000 wedding. The good news is that we threw a kick-ass Game of Thrones style wedding for $15,000. Game of Thrones is one of our favorite shows.
