About Me

Hi!  My name is Elyse and welcome to my blog!

I am married to my husband Ed and we live in Central Maryland right outside of Washington, DC.  We relocated after our wedding in August 2011 from NE Ohio and are enjoying the fast paced and exciting lifestyle that this area brings…for now 😉

I am a beach loving, frugal living, healthy lifestyle driven, Christian woman.  I commit to working out and living a healthy lifestyle every day, with a few treats thrown in every so often.  While living a healthy lifestyle can present financial sacrifices at times, I work diligently to minimize our family budget by living a frugal lifestyle full of healthy foods and meals and still leave room for new activities and travel.

      Thanks for the compliment on the name! I changed it 3 times…Haha! I wanted something unique.

      Budgeting is a huge deal to me. In some ways, I think I get real joy out of it, because it helps us accomplish our goals. Let me know of any tips you come up with yourself. I would love to hear them 🙂

      Thanks for visiting!
