Good morning, friends! I owed you a Fear Punch Friday post last week that did not happen. And for that, I apologize. Thank you, Life, and all the craziness you bring. :)

Isn’t it ironic, though, that I feared the consequences of NOT having posted for Fear Punch Friday? Maybe I was just testing myself…or you…or not really. Continue reading


You know you’re in 5 Club when…


I’ve mentioned before that I’m not a morning person. I want to snooze later than possible or I’ll get grumpy, whiny and take on other characteristics of a zombie (yep, zombies need sleep, too)!

However, it’s been my experience that waking up at 5:00am to work on my dreams isn’t totally horrible! :) Once I go bottoms up on my coffee, my tired eyes start to sparkle. The result is awesomeness and a few things I have trouble explaining to my friends… Continue reading

Fear Punch Friday: Pills, Pills, Pills


One of the fears I’ve recently overcome is that of swallowing pills. I mean, how could I have been so afraid of something so tiny (except those two horse pills, amiright??)? This is how…

Pet Sitting: Week 2

Screen Shot 2013-08-19 at 5.40.48 AM

Two weeks ago I had the opportunity to watch another home as a way to add more momentum to our debt snowball and more cute dog photos to my Instagram. It was more of a staycation because there was one dog named Mallory and a lot of plants to water (yes, Mallory liked being watered, too!). There was also another fun pool that needed to be used. :) Continue reading

30 Seconds to May

30SMobile header(via)

Last night I read a really interesting post by author Donald Miller called “How to Tell Your Story in 30 Seconds.” It’s about providing a CliffsNotes answer when someone says “tell me about yourself” or “what do you do.” It’s about doing it in such a way that you form a story, rather than a list of facts. I believe it also helps you add “why” to your “what.” More on that theory here.

So, without further ado, here’s my 30 Seconds to May:

My name is May Bohon. In 2010 God blessed my life by putting a mirror up to how horribly I handled the money He entrusted to me. Since then, I’ve fought my way out of debt, discovered joy in giving, lead personal finance classes and started taking steps towards working for Dave Ramsey so I can turn my passion into a career!

That was fun. :)

Your turn: What’s your 30-second story? What will it be 5 years from now?

Final thought: If you don’t conclude your story with an “!”, then is it really the story you want to tell?

Pet Sitting: Week 1

If you follow me on Instagram, then you already know that last week I had the opportunity to take care of 3 dogs, 1 cat and 7-ish fish. As an animal lover, watching fur babies for extra money is a no-brainer! It’s kind of like going on a stay-cation with pay (win/win).

Below is a rundown of the entertainment:

UPDATE: Debt Free Christmas


Hi friends!

I have an exciting update for you regarding our Debt Free Christmas goal! But first, here’s the back story.

For a few weeks now, I’ve been completely torn about attending Jon Acuff’s super awesome and amazing START Conference while still tackling our debt. My internal struggle went something like this:
