Hi! I’m Lisa…mommy, wife, former teacher turned blogger and lover of coffee, wine and fancy new shoes! There’s nothing I love more than hanging out with my two sweet girls, having date night with my hubby or enjoying a girl’s night out with my friends! I also LOVE to travel and it’s my dream to travel the world and hit all seven continents (although I’ll save Antarctica for last because I don’t do well in the cold)! I’m only at three right now so if you have any connections with The Amazing Race, please tell them to give me a call!!!
We recently moved to Florida and I became a stay at home mom after teaching Kindergarten for 14 years. It was something I’ve always wanted and am truly enjoying! However, I needed to find something to entertain myself for those times when the kids were in bed and hubby was working late. I can only binge watch so many shows on Netflix! One night as I was enjoying a glass of wine and shopping online, the proverbial light bulb popped on over my head and my shopping blog was born!
Hmmm…what to name it? The name comes from the fact that when I worked, I would always take a small portion of my paycheck to use as “Fun Money”. This money was only to be used for “fun” things such as shopping, eating out or having a fun night out with my girlfriends. I don’t even want to think about how much of my fun money has gone towards new shoes, although they have definitely been worth every penny!
However, as this blog has evolved, it’s become about so much more than just shopping deals, gift giving ideas and humorous stories of my shopping adventures! Of course, I’ll still post about those things from time to time, but it’s also been fun sharing the adventures of my house remodel, family life, and just writing about whatever else pops into my head. Thanks so much for stopping by to check it out!
