Hi–party people! Welcome to Snack Snark Bark. I started this blog in early 2010 and mainly used it to chronicle my meals and workouts. However, I soon found that to be very redundant and a tad boring and anyone who knows me, knows I’m not boring. So as the time has passed, so has my blog. I still post about meals, restaurants and funky food finds but also post about saving money in my Frugal Friday series, the bark-my poohuahua Lincoln and just life in general.
And life has been interesting this past year…..
After working in finance for five years with a stable job, I quit my job in April. I was making great money with a huge company however the money wasn’t making me happy and I was unfulfilled. It got to the point where I was depressed with my life because of my job so I took a leap of faith and put in a months notice. I cashed out my 401K, put half of it in a rollover IRA and the other half in a money market account to live on until I figure things out. I spent the summer traveling around the US and parts of Europe visiting friends and checking out different cities that could possibly be my new home. And I finally found a new home—Colorado!
I recently moved to Denver and can’t wait to explore the area some more and get back into the workforce!
Some other tidbits about me:
*I am very sacrastic and suffer from foot in mouth disease (but my heart’s in the right place I swear!)
*I’ve never met a glass of red wine I didn’t like
*I could eat chips and salsa every day of my life and be happy
*I do not like going through revolving doors and will walk further if it means avoiding them
*I don’t like living in one place for too long and believe I was a military brat in a former life
*My favorite bands are The Killers, The Strokes, Muse,Interpol. u2, The Beatles and Sublime to name a few (I heart Pandora!)
*I’m an extrovert and a Sagittarius to the T
*Am a frugalista!
*Besides my savings account, a majority of my money goes into my traveling savings account (without that, I have no dreams!)
