Budget, Ewwww...

Chris & I have decided to be grown ups. I know, it's a little late.
Due to this a budget was born, a strict budget. (gag)
It's important, we know. But this doesn't mean we have to like it, right?
As Chris so aptly put it yesterday, "I hate this, I just want to spend my money on what I want when I want"---ahhh, now I know why we haven't been saving a dime.

So the fun days are behind us, the serious adult-saving days are ahead. Oh joy.


There are no fun pictures on my blog lately, right? Lately I haven't been myself with my normal picture taking ways. I don't think I've taken a photo of Chris or myself for a while. We've had BBQ's with friends, beach days, family get togethers, etc....all of which I would have normally photographed. Why am I not taking photos? I am sure Chris is enjoying the break :) It made me sad when I opened iPhoto & there are no recent "events". I am in a picture taking slump. I hope I snap out of it soon!

This is funny (not your budget of course), but your comments about it and the photo's. Budgets are a good thing though. I'm sure working at anthropology doesn't help does it?? Seriously, how did we get to be so grown up???

We are in the EXACT same boat. You go to school, you work your butt off to make money, and then you can't even spend on what you want. You need to save for babies, houses, new cars, etc. It never ends! It is important though!

That does suck! John and I are trying to be good too... but we aren't doing very well. Good luck! I hope to see new pics of you all soon!

Budgets suck. I've been on one for the past four years and I still don't see an end in sight. Good luck my dear.

Amen to that. Boo. I hate being a grown up sometimes.

Ugh, budgets. Even the word makes me cringe. Sorry you are having to face this dreaded part of growing up. Good luck!

Ashley... you make me laugh. I hated being on a budget. But we did get in a house and eventually the budget gets bigger. And take it from an old person, you will look back on it fondly one day!
