On How to See The World When You Have a 9-to-5 and a Budget

Loved this! One of my biggest goals once the husband is done with school is to travel more! I'm lucky enough that my parents made travel a priority, so I've gotten to see a lot of things. The husband isn't so lucky and we made a list the other day of places we could potentially go next year. My biggest weakness, though, is awesome hotels, which adds to our travel budget needs.

@RiffRandell Oooh jealous on the foxhunt! I still haven't emailed that woman that is willing to teach me how to ride again/fox hunt. Maybe that should be my one thing next week (or tomorrow, if they do one?)

@Allison DANGEROUS! I follow them on Facebook and so far I've been so good at just looking but not buying.

@Tripleoxer Wow! This is all so exciting! It will be outrageously stressful, probably, but so worth it once the dust settles. I am so excited for you!

@LookUponMyWorks I'm the only one in my office since my asst director bailed on me. It's super creepy to be in here alone! I'm getting ready to go home, I think, since the main thing I had to do was clean out the fish tank and that's done!

On The Actual Cost of My Discount Personal Trainer

I go back and forth about getting a personal trainer. I haven't, and I probably won't for the reasons that I am cheap and that I do much better in group classes where the teacher that I am friends with pushes me without focusing all her attention on me all the time. I think having all the attention on me all the time would actually be discouraging (for me).

On Hacks for the Worst Airports in America

The TSA people at the San Diego airport are so nice. I made the stupid rookie mistake of leaving water in my FAVORITE water bottle while going through security on my way home and they just dumped it out, tested it, and gave it back to me. Never have I been so relieved to not get in trouble.

On How Much Do You Spend on Tattoos

One of my good friends in college got a pretty significant back piece (the general shape was basically a very thick upside-down U on her back, but it was an intricate design) and I think she was paying $120 an hour? I know I sat with her for at least 6 of the hours, reading her jokes or making up really stupid stories because she needed a distraction (she had no pain tolerance), and she had a few sessions I couldn't go to. That's a lot of money! But it turned out absolutely gorgeous.

On How Much Do You Spend on Tattoos

@Galatea I've thought about doing this as well! I have two moles on my face, one of which has faded a lot (/fell off? My dermatologist looked at it and said it was fine), but I feel like my face looks weird without them.
