We purchased our first home in 2006 at the age of 25-26. With a new house, new expenses came like furniture, decor and landscaping (more debt). Since we didn't have children we decided to get a dog. The wife talked me in to a female golden retriever puppy and I love her. She’s been a wonderful dog and a loyal companion. We had great friends and house parties every weekend but then our friends started having children.
In August 2013 life surprised us with a natural pregnancy. We didn't think that people who went through infertility could get pregnant naturally but life always has a funny way to prove you wrong. We are expecting another addition to the family in May 2014.
Today we are a family of 4 (soon to be 5) living in the suburbs of Houston Texas. I'm an IT consultant working with a Fortune 500 company and my wife is a Kindergarten teacher with the local district. We are both in our 30’s and we love to travel, spend money and live well. The wife loves fashion and shopping and I like to run, play golf and spend countless hours on eBay. We both love spending time with our daughter and hanging out with our families. The purpose of this blog is to document our life events and how they impact us financially and to keep an eye on our debt.
