What’s going on with us?

by Erika Torres
  • It’s been a bullet-post kind of life lately. 
  • Work has been crazy busy, so the last thing I feel like doing is sitting in front of the computer to blog when I get home…hence the silence.
  • You know you’re married when you go to Costco on a Saturday afternoon and that counts as a “date.”
  • After oscillating between paying down debt or saving for a house, I am leaning more toward paying off debt by the end of the year and being completely debt free!
  • October is a three paycheck month for us, so I’m super pumped!
  • Eric and I went to the Lululemon Warehouse Sale in L.A. two weeks ago and did some damage… I woke up at 5 am, left the house at 6:07 am, got there at 7:30 and got in line  and we still didn’t get into the sale until 11:30 am. That’s commitment folks.


  • By 11 a.m., they were saying the line was eight hours long. Those L.A. freaks love their Lululemon…
  • We also had lunch at Langer’s Deli, famous for their pastrami sandwich. Delish!

  • Afterward, I saw a man peeing at a bus stop in the middle of a busy intersection. I saw his pee-pee! Seriously??? Gotta love L.A.
  • Every time we go to L.A., it makes me feel like a grown-up. Can you believe I’ve lived an hour south of L.A. my whole life, and I never visited the Walk of Fame until I was 18? My parents have a phobia of traveling more than a ten-minute radius from their house.
  • I’m still working full-time. I’m still going to school full-time. I’m still freelancing part time. I am a busy girl!

I was really hoping this would include some info about the things you’ve been pinning lately! But alas…

I love Lulu! What did you buy at the sale? Were there great bargains?

Hooray for three-paycheck October! (Me too!) 🙂

How did I not hear about this?!?! The walk of fame is so overrated, so I don’t blame you for holding out that long. 🙂

Michelle September 24, 2013 - 8:05 am

Wow that’s crazy about the line! Glad to see an update 🙂

It’s crazy how life gets so busy sometimes. I feel the same way. Just not enough energy to accomplish everything you want to do.

You’re so close to being debt free. You have a lot on your plate. I hope you’ll get some time for yourself soon.

How exciting that you can be debt free by the end of the year! We’ve reached the point of being able to pay off our debt with our savings, so we’re just trying to decide when to do that.

That’s pretty crazy about L.A. My friend from Indiana is teaching kids in Germany now and one of them asked if she knew movie stars and had been on the red carpet. Now I’m wondering how often my relatives in Aliso Viejo go to L.A.

Our dates are to Home Depot……

I would probably pay off all my debt and then save for a house. I have never shopped at Lululemon. I guess I’m missing out.
