Own It Link Up

own-it-threeI think this is my first time linking up with Christina for her Own It series. I’ve done other similar posts but here we go:


Truthfully I’m not where I thought I’d be financially at this age. I need to really start looking at my finances and getting them in order. I am not great at saving money, spending money on the other hand comes pretty easily to me. 🙂

Fish-MemeBut I actually just signed up to go to a Rich Dad Education workshop next week so hopefully I’ll pick up some good tips from that! I’d love to hear your money saving/investing tips as well! I’m also excited to read Katie’s new link up starting this Friday called Final Friday Finance!


I have a serious case of wanderlust. I know I just got back from Alaska but there are still so many places I still have yet to go to. I’m dying to get to Europe! I’m so envious of people who get to travel all the time and those travel bloggers, don’t even get me started! Getting paid to travel sounds like a dream to me. Now if only I could figure that one out…maybe one of these days 🙂

00e8ef2a78547d63f311e7028b33d0dc8b2c53ca21f79d98a52d92c9a87642beI turned 28 this year and have had a lot of different jobs. I’m still trying to figure out where my passion lies and for right now I’m thinking it’s working at a nonprofit. I’ve heard Seattle is a great place for that and I’ve heard over and over again that the Gates Foundation is a dream to work for and are always hiring. I’m really looking forward to starting a new network up there and seeing where it will take me. I’m ready to start a career and be in a job I’m excited about and happy to talk about.

  1. I’m the same with the financial thing. When Jose and I got engaged, we had a 5 year plan(3 1/2 years in now) and honestly, none of it has went like we thought. But hey, His plan is always greater than ours! (:

  2. I’m with you on spending… I am so so bad. I feel like I’m always playing catch up… I think it’s time to remove the credit card from my wallet.

  3. I have a bad case of wanderlust every single day and it is so hard to balance that and saving money. But finding the happy balance is the best. Traveling is no fun if you’re stressed about money. But letting too much time go by without some kind of adventure isn’t good either.

    I feel like I always have a case of wanderlust too! Even if we just got back from a vacation or are still on vacation, I’m always seem to be dreaming and planning our next trip!

  5. same on the financial front! I thought by now I’d have my dream job and everything…but still stuck in the job that isn’t what I love. It’s also hard to not spend when some things we really need like food, but I have cut back on my clothes spending and accessories spending for the most part..

  6. Don’t get me started on finances. I’m not great at saving either, but a lot of that lately has to do with wedding expenses! I’m so excited for the big day, but once it’s over it’ll be a relief both for my mental health and my bank account! I also have major wanderlust right now but…I need finances for that! Sigh.

    1. Whenever people tell me to go travel now, I’m like with what money?! hah (I guess you can travel there first and get a job while you’re abroad) but still.

      I’m so excited for your big day and to hear all the details!! It will all be SO worth every expense!!

  7. I need to learn more about my finances too! I’m just starting my job with a salary so finances seem confusing to me haha! I hope your new job is everything you are hoping and more 🙂
