Three Things About Me 

I recently started blogging about food and finances. I want to share my personal experiences, successes, and failures with others who may need some encouragement. I’m eligible to retire from my job on June 6, 2018! But, I’ll only be 42, so I’m not going anywhere. I need something to do. My sons, who are now adults, are often the subjects my blog posts when I write about finances. Below is a link to my best post!



My Five Questions Were:

What was your favorite childhood activity?

My favorite childhood activity was simply going outside to play with friends. I wasn’t into video games or watching television.

 What is your favorite hobby?

My favorite hobby today is exercising. It keeps me in shape!

If you could travel for free, where would you go?

I’ve always wanted to go to Paris! I believe that it will happen one day, but I know it won’t be free.

What do you do when you want to relax?

I sit down and read a good book.  Currently, I’m reading Patricia Washington’s book titled, “ Real Money Answers For Every Woman”.

If you could be an animal, which would you be?

I would be a cat. They are quiet, caring, independent, and they work for food! They never complain.


My Five Questions Are:

What motivates you to blog when you’re tired?

Who is your favorite blogger?

What is your favorite meal?

Who is your favorite singer?

If you could be a car, what model would you prefer to be?
