Happy Friday my friends! I am in an excessively good mood this week and no, it’s not because of the 30+-degree weather we’re going to have in Toronto this long weekend. Sure, it’s a bonus of course as I’m hoping to get outside and do some cycling, but other things are finally falling into place. I’m very excited for the month ahead; there are lots of great things happening!
September in a nutshell:
- I should have my initial funding into my Questrade account and by month end should be in several stocks! So excited to continue learning about this new area of my finances.
- On Sept 3rd, I’ll be attending the blogger meet up that Cait from Blonde on a budget and Jess from Mo’money Mo’houses are hosting. If you’re interested in attending, sign up here.
- Right before Fincon, I’ll be heading into Toronto for a nice relaxing weekend and possibly heading to a party for the closing of TIFF. I say “possibly” because I’m still nervous about going by myself – eeek!
- New Orleans baby! Then of course, to round out the month, I’ll be spending six wonderful days in New Orleans attending #Fincon14 and seeing a city I’ve never been to before. I can’t wait to meet the people I chat with online on a regular basis and learn some new financial stuff. Yep, I said stuff…
I am not guaranteeing how happy I’ll financially be at the end of this month with all the spending, but I’m hoping all goes well.
