Monday Money Check-Up {the late version}

Oops, I have been in Texas for the last five days and completely forgot to publish an “I’m heading to Austin” post and schedule a “Monday Money Check-Up” post for yesterday. My apologies! So… here’s the belated version, after all today is my Monday.

1. The most I’ve spent this last week was on gasoline : $26.50. J paid for the entire Austin trip, isn’t that so sweet? I mean, sure our money will be joint soon, but it was so nice nevertheless!

2. Today I feel very good about my money. I mean, how could you not when you’ve only spent $26.50 in the last week? :)

3. Money can’t buy happiness. One free/inexpensive thing I did last week that made me happy was go to a swimming hole. It was a much-needed break from the Texas heat.

4. I will consider this week a success if I put a deposit on the wedding venue! Woot! I also promise to give you the final wedding budget as soon as it’s finalized.

5. The next trip I have planned will be for a Labor Day wedding and then an autumn trip to a cabin in the mountains. I live for those weekend trips. 

For those who care to participate, be my guest! :) Answer these five questions in the comments section or on your own blog and link it back here.

    1. The most I’ve spent this last week was on a friend’s belated birthday brunch, 3 full plates of food and that was just for me, and birthday girl not paying for herself, ran up to $55. Totally worth it.

    2. Today I feel good, but unsteady as I usually subconsciously am, towards money.

    3. Money can’t buy happiness. One free/inexpensive thing I did last week that made me happy was watching the entire 2nd season of The Shield in one sitting, go me!

    4. I will consider this week a success if I do exactly what I did last week, cause last week was a pretty damn good success, meaning I worked, and I love working.

    5. The next trip I have planned is a mini road trip up to the Bay Area to celebrate another birthday, more food!
