And had the coldest temperatures they had seen in 100 years. Spent a day at the Holy Land Experience which, for lack of other words was magical.
Let’s start off with this, I had seen it before but just rediscovered it thanks to Bridget @ Money After Graduation. Guy version here. Dying yet? Alright moving on. In my last travel related post I referenced the fact that I tend to overpack (For all travel-related posts click on the travel tag above this blogContinue reading “How to travel light”
A comment on this post made me realize that I haven’t really been tracking my networth. Calculating and tracking my networth was one of the very first things I figured out when I became interested in personal finance back in 2006. I used to input my balances on a cool site called NetworthIQ and enjoyedContinue reading “September Networth – 2012”
I’ve been wanting to add a screendoor to the new bedroom ever since it was built. A few weeks ago I picked up a special order door that was returned at the Home Depot for $24.99.

Many of you know me as Andrea and many of you know that I blog semi-anonymously and that Andrea isn’t my real name. (It’s an anagram of my real name, no-one has been able to solve that little puzzle yet!) I’m getting awfully tired of calling myself Andrea when I’ve been correcting people on theContinue reading “Let me re-introduce myself”
I’ve been slowly posting pics & a record of my most recent trip to Europe in late July/August. I checked out the Blue Lagoon in Iceland, traveled to Brussel and checked out the Atomium among other things and after that moved onward to the Netherlands. One of the next adventures on my trip was getting toContinue reading “Home is where the heart is, checking in with friends & family”
I have referenced my bathroom on this blog way more times than I can count. When I bought my house I knew it had issues, I just didn’t know how serious those issues were. My bathroom in particular had a few problems. It needed a new window, had no bathroom fan, a seriously bad andContinue reading “TLH: Project Bathroom”
