TAG! You're It!

I have been tagged by Dana at Sweeping Through Life. I have never done one of these, so here goes! The rules are as follows:

List 10 things that make you happy.
Tag 10 other bloggers and link back to the person who tagged you.
Well, here it goes.......

1. Hanging out with the hubby. This is my absolute FAVORITE thing in the world!

2. Spending time with my family. Since we live several hours away, this time is few and far between.

3. Decorating our home.

4. Just enjoying being home. I can spend so much time just "being" there. Bliss. Sidenote: this worked to my advantage during the Snowtorious B.I.G. of 2010. Can we say 9 days straight in the house?

5. Traveling. I like seeing new places and experiencing new things.

6. Shoes. Finding and wearing a great pair of shoes makes me happy.

7. Shopping

8. Work. As corny as it may sound, and as much as I may complain sometime - I do enjoy serving the American public.

9."In the Heat of the Night" - there is something about that show that I just LURVE!

10. DVR - how else would I see a noon episode of ITHOTN???

Weekly Savings Tip - Happy Pig Day!

March 1 is National Pig Day! Benjamin Bankes wants you to take five minutes out of your day to revamp your savings. Reserving one day a month to examine your financial goals and your current spending habits can go a long way toward kicking expensive hobbies and excessive spending.

What have you spent money on recently? Are you paying off as much of your debt as possible, starting with the debt with highest interest rate? Can you save money by changing up your morning routine? Are you planning any large purchases in the near future and have you been saving for them?

Click here to REVAMP your savings (and have some fun revamping Benjamin Bankes while you are at it).
