Updates: May 19 – 25

This week is the first of three weekends in which I’ll be attending an 8 hr/day wine course for both Saturday and Sunday. I’m going to get my WSET Level 3 certification in wines and spirits. I’m pretty excited to take the course and try some awesome wines, but there is certainly a trade off for time. So, thanks to CF for helping me pull together this post!

It’s times like this when I lament the high cost of wine in BC.  Imports are taxed at over 100% and the government runs a monopoly distribution/retail system. As such, a $6 bottle in California will cost over $20 in BC. It’s enough to make a wine enthusiast quite sad, especially when that person is also a PF blogger!

With the course and various other activities, it’s going to be a busy couple of weeks. I plan on reconnecting with Jeremy at Modest Money over a soccer game and catching up with my family next week.

Hope you have a great week and be sure to check out some awesome posts from the week:

  • Budget and the Beach got back to playing Beach Volleyball this week and talked about gratitude.
  • Ever had a car loan? Ever had an 8 YEAR car loan? I can’t imagine taking out an 8 year loan on a car, so I have to agree with the Squirrelers – it’s insane!
  • Girl Meets Debt discusses her decision to invest in herself and get braces as a young adult.


Thanks to everyone who included us this week!
