Pay Day!

So, my new job came with a pretty decent raise. And I've spent a lot of time thinking about what I'd like to do with all the extra money we've got coming in...
1. We already did the first thing on my list, we got ourselves a better second vehicle. I drive a 2005 Honda Civic, but up until last week Jonathan was driving a 2001 Chevy S10. Last Thursday we picked up a 2009 Hyundai Santa Fe. Buying new didn't appeal to us, but we wanted something that felt new, and we found it.

2. I'd like to get at least one colour for Butter London's "Spring" collection.

3. Sign up for a subscription box. Leaning towards Julep's Monthly Maven Box, or Bark Box for Daisy. I think she'd love it!
4. Save some money and go on a trip! I'd love to go on a cruise, or go see castles in Wales, or go visit my sister-in-law in Florida...
5. Sign up for Weight Watchers and/or get a gym membership.
6. Get some new ringette gear.
7. Shoes! I want new sneakers and new casual shoes. And something fun. (Like these peep toes from Payless.)
8. Put some extra money on credit cards and get those paid off. (And, unfortunately, this is where all the extra money is going to go...)




  1. What great shoes - hope you treat yourself to a pair.

  2. Oh, how fun! I love getting a new vehicle! How exciting!

    Boo for credit cards, but yay for paying a chunk of it off! I love the feeling of paying down debt!

  3. Those shoes are an awesome colour!

  4. YOu deserve a treat for sure. I love those Butter London polishes!!!

  5. Bark box, how cute! Love that idea, I will have to look into for my pup.

  6. I'm loving those peep-toe maryjane like heels -- they're fabulous!! Can't wait to hear what you do with the subscription boxes...I have no idea where people find these things but every time I read a new blog post a new subscription box seems to emerge! Good luck :)
