#8 Choose - What was the biggest choice you made in 2011? What caused you to choose what you chose?

Trying to step away from the biggest event of my year (the wedding), I'm going to say the biggest choice of 2011 was to not renew at our apartment and move in with my parents.  The idea popped into my head while I was talking with my long time friend Corinne, and continued to build into a reality after talking with Chris and my parents.  

I know this decision will change up our current lifestyle, but we also know that it will be so beneficial to our savings account so we can stop throwing money away in rent and build up our down payment for our first home. I am so thankful that my parents are willing to take on 3 new roommates (us and our dog, although my dad continues to joke that only Gypsy can live rent free) and allow us to save a bigger chunk of money each month.

Our guest room has becoming a staging area for our boxes

This month I'm participating in WEverb11, you can find out more info here. Thanks to Kim for setting it up!.


  1. that is a really big decision, and so financially wise!

  2. That's nice that you had the option to do that. I hope you save tons of money and buy a really great place!

  3. What an incredible choice this was! And it's so great that your parents were willing to let you and your family move in with them so that you can save up for your future. I'm excited for the day when you two buy your first home!
