Friends, Starbucks, and Volvos
So, since we’re leaving our jobs and about to be essentially living out of our car (ok just for a week while we drive to CA), Jon has been monitoring Quicken and our bank account even more. As I napped peacefully on Sunday, Jon worked up a little chart of our expenditures at a certain local “watering hole” we frequent. He waited so patiently until I woke up then proceeded to enlighten me to those expenditures. Let’s just say our contributions to the Starbucks company doubled in one month. What changed from Sept to Oct? We moved out of our Keller house and stopped using our cappuccino maker. Isn’t that crazy? It’s pathetic I know but it’s been challenging to keep up that routine of the lattes at home and making lunches for work. But looking at a chart like that really inspires you to get back into a routine. ;-) Thanks babe for keeping us on track. :)
Sorry Starbuck’s, we’re going to have to cut back on our visits:
And continuing the money talk, we got a new ride. Correction: new used ride. We knew we wanted to turn the truck in before we moved and decided it’d prob be cheaper to buy in TX. So we found a great deal on a Volvo XC 90 which we love. Her name is Victoria (and yes, I name my car and laptop) I’m quirky and you should all know this by now :) Anyway, she’s a good, very safe car that we hope to grow into for the next 10+ years. Here’s me freaking out as we’re signing the paperwork.
Some other exciting news is that Jon’s business logo and name has been solidified.
Thank you to our good friend Jon Simpson and his company for their help! :)
