My Weekly Money Check-Up 8/22/11

Hi there! As I anticipated last week, it's been pretty busy in my world. Unfortunately the rest of this month is going to be like that too. I will update you all once things finalize themselves here over the next week or two. In the meantime, here's My Weekly Money Check-Up, courtesy of My Pretty Pennies.

1. The most I’ve spent this last week was on our debt repayment. We sent a big payment into our credit card ($1829.65 - every penny counts).

2. Today I am thankful for new possibilities. A few have presented themselves in the past week or so and I'm excited to see where they take us.

3. Money can’t buy happiness. One free thing I did last week that made me happy was went for another moonlit walk with the hubby along the beach. Ahhh, this may be habit forming!

4. I will consider this week a success if I get the news that my hubby got the job he interviewed for! That would truly make this week a success for us.

5. The best prank ever pulled on me was when some co-workers decorated my cubicle with funny pictures. I didn't noticed at first because they actually took the time to cut out heads of celebrities to put on top of people I knew in my personal picture frames. It was intricate work that took a while for them to accomplish. I laughed so hard when I finally noticed. It was a good prank! I miss those old co-workers/friends, but I have some good memories from the times we shared together.

Enjoy the week everyone!


  1. Wow good job on the sending such a large payment in!

  2. Nice work on the big payment, but also nice work paying over $10K down on the debt! You're doing so well!

  3. That's a great payment for the debt. Good job! Also I love the prank.

  4. Love the prank! I probably wouldn't have noticed first either! lol!! Great payment on the debt!! :)

  5. This is a great update; congrats on the payoff and good luck!

    Would you like to trade blogroll links?? I can't believe I haven't asked this before considering how much we read each other's blogs! :)
