Happy boy

Recently we decided we each need our own spending budget. We can spend it on things that aren't a necessity. It seems to be working great! And we love not having to get permission from each other to buy certain things. We can save up months to get something big, or use it that month.

What have you found that works for budgeting shopping/spending money?

Derek decided to use his budget for a penny board. He is one happy camper about that thing. He was like a kid on Christmas coming home from school to see that package. He was in the door and right back out to ride that thing. I loved seeing him so excited.

We're also giddy about our weekend coming up. I don't know that Derek would choose the word giddy(too feminine for baseball), but that's sure how I feel about Friday and Saturday this weekend.

Friday looks like this...(look'ed' like, until we just barely realized, after I posted this, that's next friday. So so sad. Poor guy was SOOO excited)

And Saturday we are celebrating our 2nd anniversary. I can't believe it's been two years. I'm one lucky lady to have that boy in my life forever. I thank my Heavenly Father for him daily. Derek has it all planned out and I can't know a thing. Yip! I love surprises. And him. More than I ever thought possible.


  1. That sounds like a really good idea. We might need to think about doing that. We've done it where if we do side work (he works on someone's car, I make and sell something, etc), then that money is ours to spend. I'm excited to find out what Derek has planned for your anniversary! I hope there's a post for it. Happy Anniversary!

  2. Budget? What? Just kidding. We definitely are working on putting together a "realistic" budget now that we have a couple of months of knowing our spending habits together, a food bill for 2, gas/electric costs, etc. I really love the idea of having a "fun" part of the budget that you both have a portion of. I'm adding that in to ours for sure! Can't wait to hear about your anniversary celebrations! And, I think it's about time for a skype date!

  3. He really does look like it's Christmas morning. We were never brave enough to have a "fun money" part of the budget. Good for you. Spending money on yourself occasionally is theraputic (sp?).
