Life

While in Oregon, Tony and I spent an afternoon driving up the Historic Columbia River Highway (HCRH) along the Columbia River Gorge. If you’re ever in the Portland area, I highly recommend renting/borrowing a car and taking this scenic highway. It’s only a 30-minute drive from downtown Portland.

Taxes, Done. Flight Booked!

I’m so extremely ecstatic right now! {okay, so I might be on a little caffeine buzz, but still…} I have completed TWO major milestones today. #1 – Taxes are done. {Don’t forget to check out my post from last year for some commonly missed deductions that can save you $$!} #2 – Our flight to […]

Some Exciting News

Just briefly checking in. Happy week before taxes!! (Ugh) I’ve been super busy this week, what with taxes looming (d’oh! still not done), getting my Roth contribution for 2010 squared away (double d’oh), rebalancing my 401k, wedding planning (le sigh), and one crazy, mentally exhausting week at work.
