Frugal, Fancy, Friday: Fiance Edition!

Vacation last week set me back a bit in my posting, but here’s a special “Frugal, Friday” featuring my wonderful fiancé! Andrew does not love to shop, but he looooooves to save money, so consignment and thrift shops are perfect for anytime he needs a new ‘fit. First up, Andrew’s literal favorite shirt. I could…

You are loved

As I started to say goodbye to my friends and family today, I couldn’t hold back tears. I often cry, so this wasn’t entirely surprising, but in that moment I was so overwhelmed by how lucky I am and I didn’t want the weekend to end. I’m extremely grateful people traveled from all over the country to celebrate with me, and those who couldn’t be there reached out to wish me well. This weekend was a really special one, but also the latest in a series of incredible memories I have with these beautiful, brilliant individuals. I never want to take for granted how fortunate I am and what a privilege it is to feel this love.

Frugal, Fancy, Friday: Cape Edition 2018

The Serio family heads to the Cape this weekend for our 15th annual summer vacation! Over the years our fashion sense has evolved, but we always have a few staple items. Most important, our “Serio” branded apparel. Since 2007, we’ve ordered custom t-shirts each year for our wiffle-ball game. As we got older and less…

“Oh, the places you’ll go!”-Dr. Seuss

There is nothing like a good adventure I have been incredibly fortunate to travel to a number of countries in the world. However, after plugging in the places I have been on this map, it is clear that I have actually only seen a small fraction of the world. Make yours @ BigHugeLabs.com As a…

Grateful

“Do not spoil what you have by desiring what you have not; remember that what you now have was once among the things you only hoped for.”  ― Epicurus Over the past several months, a number of events took place that I am very grateful for. 1. Got a new job working at a preschool as…

Everything is awesome

Is the title of the very catchy, yet slightly annoying, song in The Lego Movie, which is excellent and you should all go see. Aside from that everything has been quite awesome this week because the Olympics are underway the job search is coming to some fruition my parking karma is on point As far…
