Weekly Spending and Fitness Recap 3/28-4/3/2011

Ahhhhhh! I don't even want to LOOK at this week's spending. This is what happens when I get careless. This must stop NOW! To be fair, what skewed my weekly spending was obviously the major trip to the hair salon. My hair is indeed fabulous and looks 20x healthier, but it really hurt to spend that much money on my hair. I definitely would go back to the salon and stylist I went to but I just can't and won't go that often. Luckily my hair is darker now and my roots won't be showing until it fades again.

I also made a few purchases I could have done without this week such as the Britney Spears album, these thigh high socks I ordered from Ebay, donuts and a wii game. When I type it all out like that it sounds bad but I guess I need to hold back on these little self-indulgences! We also BBQed yesterday and I had to buy some snacks for a business trip this week.

BF and I had our monthly financial meeting this past Friday and we are still condo hunting. What we didn't expect was that our purchase price would increase by $100k. We were originally looking to buy a condo for $125k but after checking out an assortment of condos priced differently and in various locations, we decided on a location and the price range for that area is significantly more - about $200-275k but after discussing this almost everyday for the past month, we are okay with our decision. Along with the higher price of a condo, we want to put more towards the down payment. We have found a few that we like but everyone seems to be buying right now, which means we are always late to make an offer and someone puts in an offer first. A few years ago, prices were about $400k for similar condos and the area is pricey. If anyone knows SoCal, the area we are looking to buy in is right next to La Jolla in San Diego.

Anyway that's just a little update with my life. I'm leaving for North Carolina at 6am tomorrow morning and won't be back until Friday night. I'm hoping I can squeeze in a post or 2 but I will be in meetings all day and I want to try to fit in a few gym sessions at night at the hotel. Hope everyone has a great week!

La Jolla and its surrounding areas is absolutely beautiful. I hope you find something in your price range in that area.

I absolutely love the idea of a monthly financial meeting with your bf. I should do the same. The bf is my closest friend and we talk about everything, but we somehow never really, REALLY discuss our finances and plans. I was thinking of making him meet me somewhere (I'm thinking coffee shop) to discuss, and to bring bank statemetns and calculators etc. It'll be nice to be on the same page together.

we also just started condo hunting in our area... nothing under 500k unfortunately :( Toronto is expensive!
