A young military family's journey to living the American Dream.
I'm a 24 year old SAHM, and I have two daughters ages 6 and 3. My husband, also 24, is in the Army.
I was working towards a degree in Accounting through the University of Phoenix Online, then decided Accounting wasn't my dream anymore. I am now working on being an RN. My goal is to be a Neonatal Nurse Practitioner.
The husband and I aren't in any serious debt. Although, we recently purchased a new crossover for $30K which we plan on paying off within the next year.
I chose to keep this blog to help me keep track of my finances, keep away from debt, and to remind me of my goals/dreams.
