We love a little bit of Drizzy in our house 😂
Definitely doing this now! This has been an amazing year of staying home and paying debt! Lol
Do what makes YOU feel alive, what makes YOU excited, do YOUR dream and vision...you owe it yourself to live the greatest life possible.
Some of us fail to follow our dreams because of those around us (parents, family, friends, etc). People will always scare you into NOT following your dreams and to become reasonable with your life. Many times its because they are protecting you out of fear. But if being reasonable isn't what makes you tick.. if you dont get excited about being an engineer, a lawyer , a doctor. running the family business, being an office worker, or working the 9-5...then don't do it.. you'll be regretful and unfulfilled. .
Some of us fail to follow our dreams because we are chasing other peoples approval, what society deems successful, or because you'd rather be able to look successful on the outside with a great paying job you hate but are too scared to quit to pursue a dream you've always had that maybe doesn't pay much for a while. Just because some people achieve their success a particular way, doesn't mean that you have to do the same. You can achieve massive success in anything you want no matter how weird or crazy it sounds. It'll take a crap load of work and vision, but if you can learn to love the process and the journey of it, you'll be happier and more fulfilled than ever

I've been a nurse for almost 9 years (and still have student loans 😭)
One of my favorite parts about nursing is the flexibility, I started in med-surg, then did postpartum, then labor and delivery and today I work in the pharmaceutical industry.
Areas I can make more money but could never work: inpatient psych, home health, nursing home 🤑
Areas I would work but won't because I would make less money: doctors office, business hours clinics, education, school nurse
Where my #debtfree #nurses
at? Anybody killing it with some critical care pay/on call and night shift diff?! I remember those days and Girl you are so tired 😴😂 What type of nursing would you never do?

I am so excited!!! Smart Money is coming to Fairfield! #daveramsey
During a “perceptions about money” lesson earlier this year, my students learned that a person’s wealth is calculated by their assets minus their debt. This is simplified but intended to demonstrate that many people who appear wealthy with flashy items and lots of “things” may in all actuality be drowning in debt. Luckily my students are young, intelligent and informed. But like everyone, they are still susceptible to the temptations that credit offers and they will soon be facing the challenge of getting through college or other profession programs with as little student loan debt as they can. My hope for my students is that they get to keep and use their hard earned money for things they want and their hopes and dreams, NOT drowning in interest payments. 💵💰💳💸💲

Packing your lunch doesn’t have to be boring! Mix it up, add in some of your favorites, make extra leftovers, etc. Do whatever it takes to keep you from eating out!
ⒽⒺⓁⓁⓄ to new challenges: Some people wait until the winter to work on their “summer body.” Others wait until the 1st of the year to set goals and be intentional about them. But what if you started right now. What if instead of waiting for that monumental “moment” in time to set and chisel away at your goals, you just started today. So when that time (be it summer, January 1st or whenever) comes around, you’re ahead instead. There are 11 more weeks to this year. I’ve chosen NOW to set physical and fiscal challenges for myself that I want to walk into 2019 ahead of the game on. Everything from working on a bulk & cut and being more intentional about my eating and sleep habits to using the @daveramsey
snowball method to work toward financial freedom. The saying goes, “If you fail to prepare, you prepare to fail,” so I challenge you too... to prepare for and start building on those goals now. You know, the ones you’ve been saying “I’ll start next year,” to.
I took my husband home because the doctors triaged everyone else, they clearly don’t think he was at risk otherwise they would have seen him. I TOOK HIM HOME SO THE DOCTORS COULD DO THEIR JOB LOOKING AFTER PEOPLE WHO REALLY NEED HELP! My husband didn’t need to be there so I took him home. FUCK OFF with your bullshit messages. we didn’t need a weed post this week for the Karen’s to come out to play. I have one fucking ovary and the drs have told me to have a baby in the next 12 months to see if we will need several rounds of IVF. Something we will have to prepare for.
Are you prepared for a rainy day? A EFund is so important to have. I highly encourage everyone to establish one. 💰💪🏽👍🏽 #yougotthis #financialfreedom
Love seeing you guys making progress on your financial goals!! 🙌
We paid off all our debt two years ago using Dave Ramsey's "debt snowball", and then something happened and we had to use our emergency fund. And then things KEPT happening. For two years! We weren't able to get our emergency fund back up to $1000. Until now!! 🎉🎉 Back on track, guys! We are finally able to move on to baby step #3
! #sheworkshardsavingmoney #daveramsey
After 3 hours of waiting. Every single person who came in after us was seen by a dr, I saw this as judgement that they weren’t concerned about my husband at all so I took him home. I took him home and got dressed and left for work. I will only lose 2 hours worth of pay today now.

Hiii guys!! Can you believe it's the 15th of October already!?! We're halfway through the month and it's time for my November debt payoff goals update!! This month concludes my 90-day challenge!! I'm sooo excited to close this month successfully having earned/paid almost $20,000 toward student loan debt in 3 months!!! 🙌🙌 Do you know what I could have bought with that? 😩Btw...lol
The next goal is a bit different. Student loan #4
iz $13,000!!! Soooo....I'm going to break it up over 2 months. My goal: Earn $6500 in November and $6500 in December (Payoff January 20th). The hardest part will be the day the entire $13,000 is in my account and I click submit...omg, pray for me!! 😩😩 lol. At the end of the day...it's not MY money because "the borrower is slave to the lender". As long as I have student loan debt...my money is not my money. Ahhh...welp, let's get it!! 🙌🙌 ***Special thank you to my YouTube audience...You are appreciated!! Glad to have you on this journey with me ❤ **If you haven't already, subscribe to my channel to join my debt free journey. Link in BIO.
moment: I was raised by a single mom. My whole life I've witnessed poor money habits. Our power and landline phone would get turned off yet my mom would go to yard sales on Saturdays.
She won a lawsuit...a bunch of money. She blew it all. Was my mom addicted to struggle? I don't know for sure. I do know that's a real thing.
You have to get to a point in life where you can say, "Hey, Im tired of living paycheck to paycheck. Im tired of owing everybody. I'm tired of robbing Peter to barely pay Paul.". We are fed up! I had plans to ignore my student loans for the rest of my life. 🤔
I've deferred for almost 10 years. In order to qualify for deferment, you have to have to be in a low pay grade. Crazy! I was afraid to make a ton of money because I knew I would have to pay student loans. Enough is enough!!! Last year I made the most money I've ever made in my life. I know when its time to renew my deferment, I probably won't qualify and thats ok. We are facing this debt. We are going without stuff and doing it with joy! We have grown so much as a couple and we don't fight about money at all. We are so incredibly blessed. -Alicia ❤

Meal prepping like a boss! This should last us a few days! .
When budgeting, making out a meal plan is SUPER important for several reasons!
1. Less waste! Having meals planned out means buying specific ingredients for the meals you’ll be cooking instead of having food hanging out in your fridge waiting to be used until it eventually goes bad.
2. Picking recipes with similar ingredients for the week means that bag of carrots gets used up instead of using just a few and the rest of the bag going bad.
3. Less waste = less cost and that’s the whole point of budgeting right!? And last but not least!!
4. Planning meals means you can make enough for leftovers and lunch the next day which cuts down on spending AND is a lot healthier than running through the drive thru every day!!

This weekend I was privilaged beyond words to help lead worship TWICE! Once with my home congregation and again as a fill-in for a young church plant.
Both were awesome and I never want to neglect what an opportunity it is to help usher people into the very throne room of God. But, I was reminded, I. Am. A. Servant.
This pic (📷: @lauren_alexandraa
) is from my home congregation. Gorgeous paid off building. New lights. Wireless mics and in-ear monitors. Permanent digs.
The church plant rents a space and hauls equipment in and out of storage each week. Being a singer there means rolling cords and packing speakers. Teaching there means setting up children's church from tubs each week. Having snacks there means placing chairs around so you have a place to eat.
Honestly, I miss that level of servanthood. Seth and I did that with our church back in OK for about 6 years. And people sought positions of "leadership" not out of a desire for glamour and to be under lights, but out of a desire to serve when there were no lights shining on them at all.
Just food for thought 🥕⛪.

I guess it's back to the grind 😧
So I fell off the wagon this past weekend with my spending. ..
It started out innocently with a couple purchases I convinced myself I “needed” at Target for the wedding I was in. Then I said “Oh I have nothing to wear for the rehearsal dinner,” and found myself in the Gap Outlet dropping 150 dollars on clothes (none of which I wore to the dinner 🙄). ..
At the wedding I overtipped my hair and makeup artists, which I don’t regret because they did an amazing job. ..
After the wedding, fun-Katie came out to play and wanted to go out dancing, while out I purchased drinks for multiple friends. 😬
I’m mad at myself for all of these things but I refuse to make excuses. They were all poor choices. And I’ve realized that once I gave myself a little bit of slack, I freaking ran with it. .. The rest of this month will be me trying to do a severe pantry challenge, sell some things, and hopefully getting my Unclaimed Moneys from the Department of Treasury. Even then I’m sure this is still lowering my overall snowball payment for the month to make sure my overspending was completely covered. .. The old me would have kept spending and used this as the reason to just give up paying off my debt quickly. The new me feels guilty AF and wants to do better. Progress not perfection. This is me and my real #debtfreejourney

Threw some cut up bananas into the freezer to be used in smoothies! When using frozen bananas, I find that I get smooth, thick smoothies that are nice and cold without using ice! Plus, it won't melt and make your smoothie watery 😝 Reduces food waste since I'm very picky and bananas are usually in their Allyx-ready-to-eat state for one day 😂 Would love a good homemade recipe for banana bread if anyone knows of one! Trying to find more ways to use food/fruits 💕 Normally I'd have put these in a plastic gallon sized bag, but now I use my @stasherbag
We are still doing kitchen renovations, been a few weeks without a kitchen light but now it’s gloomier- until then, I’ll stand by the window to get a picture lol
