Have a guy in your life that lives and breathes adventure? If he’s not jumping out of a perfectly good plane, he’s hiking, biking, or doing extreme sports. If he’s an avid outdoorsman, he might seem like he has everything.
But if he’s got a birthday coming up (or you want to get him a “just because” gift), we’ve got suggestions. Read on for gift ideas for the adventurous guy in your life.
I recently re-watched Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life. In case you’ve been living under a rock, A Year in the Life is the revival of the original WB show. It follows the lives of Rory and Lorelai 10 years after we last saw them at the end of season seven…when Rory had just graduated from Yale.

Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life doesn’t portray millennials in a flattering light. Lorelai’s neighbor, Babette, tells the girls about the “30-something gang”… “a group of kids, all about your age. They’ve been to college, then out in the real world, and it spit them out like a stale piece of gum. And now they’re all back in their old rooms, like [Rory].”
There’s something so romantic about autumn, isn’t there? It’s not just the season of pumpkin spice after all. Between the crispness of the air, the fall foliage, and that first snuggle session in front of a roaring fire, there’s nothing that spells romance better than this season.
Don’t wait for winter to come along and take it all away—get outside with your significant other and enjoy it. Need some inspiration? Read on for six picture perfect fall date ideas that don’t break the bank. And, yes, pumpkin spice lattes are a perfectly acceptable accompaniment.
A prenuptial agreement might be something that you only associate with celebrities and high society or something that you’ve seen on TV. It might come as a shock to you then to find that more and more millennials are opting for a prenup.
Since my hubby and I are currently on a three year spending ban while we pay off $117,000 of student loan debt, we don’t generally travel. However, we went to Arizona last year because my step grandpa passed away and we were there for his funeral.
Personal finance is about choices. Many frugal people continue to splurge on a couple of things that are truly important to them – because they’re frugal in most areas, they can afford to splurge on things that they value. Frugality doesn’t have to mean giving up everything you love – if, and only if, you can afford to buy those things.
I love blogging. I enjoy inspiring others to make smarter financial choices and it’s amazing that I can make a little side income through this blog. This money goes straight toward the debt snowball on my student loans.
When I first read about the Money and Marriage event on Dave Ramsey’s website, I really wanted to go. Rachel Cruze (Dave Ramsey’s daughter) and Les Parrott (a psychologist and an award-winning author) were coming to Minneapolis to talk about relationship psychology and personal finance…two of my favorite subjects!
If you’re new here, I post an update every couple of months that details how we’re doing on our debt payoff and other goals. I also include some highlights of the months and what I’ve been reading and watching…because life is about more than just reaching goals. As a Type A person (with debt), I easily get caught up in trying to be productive all the time. It’s important to relax once in a while 🙂
January and February have been an eventful couple of months. I paid off another student loan (yay!), our cat was diagnosed with kidney disease and had to be put down 🙁 , and I turned 28.
