Being a Grown Up.

When you become a grown up you begin to value your parents. In my most recent days I have realized just how s-p-o-i-l-e-d I really am. (Not only by my parents, but my husband!)

Reasons:
1) I didn't have to work through college, my mommy and daddy sacrificed so that I could study hard and make good grades (which I did!).
2) I am driven to work every day by my husband.
3) I can count on both hands how many times I've had to do the dishes since I got married.

Okay ... before people start writing me letters of jealousy and hatred let me get to the point!

Due to our effort to put my husband through graduate school without any student loans, we have had to re-budget and re-think our spending.

Changes:
1) Stop eating out (Sadness)
2) Grocery Shop / Pack Lunches EVERY day
3) Make my own coffee (Sadness)
4) Coupon (more actively)
5) ...cancel our TV ...

We have talked about #5 for one solid year. ... For 1 solid year, my husband and I have talked about how satellite TV is a Luxury item.  At 10:30 p.m. we officially cancelled our TV.

Welcome to grown up decisions.

In December 2013 my husband will be graduating with his Masters in Library Science from the University of South Florida. Lord willing, we will still have no student loans and he will maintain his 4.0 GPA.

I leave you with my husbands tweet.
