1.  Save $1600 each month - put it away where I can't touch it...lol.
2.  Travel more - perhaps even alone.
3.  Finally get that TOEFL certificate - preferably spending a month overseas doing it
4.  Become a big sister/mentor to a child - other than my own...lol
5.  Buy an investment property
6.  Learn to swim well
7.  Do a triathalon

I need to do my vision board!  

Time for an update on my goals.

1.   I'm saving $35K a year - it is killing me 
     softly but it is okay.  I want to retire in 5 years with a "stash of cash"
     and travel and teach overseas.  Then when my pensions kick in withdraw
     from them.  

2.  Travel more - went to Europe in Summer 2011, So America, Summer      of 2012, and Europe in Fall of 2012. Going back to South America 2013.

3.  I went for a different certification, will be finished with that this June and
     in September I begin on a Masters in TEFOL.  *This will help me when I        want to teach overseas*

4.  As I plan on living overseas, I am not 100% interested in investment
     properties.....but if something came along I'd listen :)  perhaps.

4.  Instead of a triathalon - I continue doing marathons....

I cant remember what I wrote but im sure they were financial goals...
 
ive paid all credit cards off ----a little over 5000
im five months away from paying my car off----3800 left and a year early
next im working on a 3-6 month fully funded emergency fund--- this should take a year since the car payment is gone
once the savings are together its baby making time for me and the hub
thanks to dave ramsey
