TGIF

Yay for Fridays! I will more than likely be absent from blogging this weekend because I am hopping on a train at 7pm to get to Richmond around 9 & see my Dave! He moved last weekend--and let me tell you, going from seeing someone EVERY day & night to not seeing them for a week, is hard stuff!...Something I will have to get used to (at least for a few months.) I have begun looking at jobs & apartments in Richmond. My wants are MUCH greater than his (he wants to be able to save tons of money with a smaller place---whereas I want a big place with a pool, a guest room, ample parking, and a nice view!) It may take me longer to find what I want because I would like to have at least the same salary I am making here, benefits and all. We'll see how things turn out :) Have a great weekend!

Moving to Richmond, eh? We travel thru there all the time on our way to our inlaws/Grandparents in PA.
I like your furniture choices. They are very nice. It's great to be able to buy new furniture, seems to last that much longer.
Are you and Dave getting married soon?
Since vision is 20/20 looking back, I can tell you it is much wiser to get a place that is affordable and save considerably for the future. If you do start a family one day, you'll need to be able to live on one income for the time being. Save now, be prepared for the future. I'm still working on that lesson at age 38. We're trying to figure out how to pay for college next year and raise the other 5 on one income. It's better to start life as a saver, not a spender. That was a hard lesson for us.
Take care...
