Hi everyone – sorry I’ve been pretty MIA during March, but I’ve been gone for most of it on our honeymoon! I thought I’d write a brief overview of what’s been going down lately.
First off – a couple weekends after the wedding, I ran my first half-marathon as a Mrs.! I was a bit worried about it since I didn’t run a long run for awhile, but despite the heat, time change, and big hill on mile 9 (which I mostly hiked up), I had a lot of fun! B was there to meet me at the end, and while before I thought it would be my last half for awhile, now I’m on the hunt for a next one.
Also, we went on our honeymoon! We ended up going to Santiago in Chile, Buenos Aires
in Argentina, and my ultimate “bucket list” destination – Easter Island!! I’ll probably do a post on each three places since they’re all so different, and it might be useful for anyone traveling there in the future. I had so much fun and even more motivated to continue with Spanish. I also read quite a few “fun” books while here – The Husband’s Secret, What Alice Forgot, and The Rosie Project – all of which I really recommend. Our aim was to spend about 50% of our gift funds and invest the rest, and I think we’re more on our way to meeting that target (knock on wood!).
And finally, I got a new job! The day before we left, I interviewed for the position and they’ve notified that I was chosen. I of course negotiated (I mean, all they can do is say no, right?), and it’s a great promotion and opportunity at a different area, and I’m super excited about it! Plus you know what this means – lifestyle inflation!! Kidding, of course.
Anyway, I’ll write about the different honeymoon destinations soon (as well as posting money stuff including Argentina’s inflation, counterfeit money in Chile, and the cost of living in each place), but I hope everyone has been doing well and keeping up with their financial goals! I miss y’all so much and can’t wait to catch up with each of you. 🙂
