Congratulations on a really good year! Worked 9 months and made $180,000 is a rock star! How awesome that you can speak French fluently. You got your act so together. Can't wait to hear about your Asia trip.

BTW FB, how much do you pay in taxes? Don't Canadians pay 50%?

That would be great. I tried copying the badge, but Wordpress won't let me.

I love seeing your networth updates. Especially the graphs and breakouts and your comments. I actually thought about not posting mine on my blog. I use networth IQ but for some use I cannot get the badge on the blog. I see my blog as a diary since no one really comments, but you :) and the spammers. I inadvertently erased Jan 09's networth post. I was so pissed off about that.

I was accused of regifting by my sister circa 2006 even though I did not. I used to buy stuff throughout the year and store it in my closet. I forgot about a pair of pajamas I bought at a Dallas mall a couple years prior. It was never opened and still had tags on it. I also bought a $20 gift card along with it. She refused both and I was really pissed off. I then turned around and gave her a $50 gift card. I still wear those pajamas today. My sister was such a b!tch.

You friend should have at least put the sweater in a gift bag. I have no problems with regifting...just being accused one. Lol.

I would like to quit my nicorette habit! I know I will not be able to until I get out of the military. It is too stressful. I need to exercise more. I have only made financial goals at this point. Need to meditate on what holistic and spiritual changes I would like to make.

Congrats on going eco-friendly and minimalist. I still have to wrap my mind around not going shopping for a year. That takes an enormous amount of discipline...very impressive. Love your Asia tour...you are already eating miso soup. Miso soup was my favorite when I lived in Japan. I have my sights on Europe, but hopefully will visit Thailand and maybe Singapore before leaving here.

Wish you the very best of 2011!

Congrats! I am an Anthropologie addict. If I walk into an Anthropologie store, I walk out with $600-$1000 in clothes. I have done better with the catalogs. Thankfully living in Korea helps cure my addiction a little bit. My last shopping spree was in Sept 2010. My only clothing purchase for the year.

Yummy! Love the Godiva review. I am fond of their chocolate covered cashews.
The store on base refuses to reorder them for some strange reason. I also used eat schwarama (sp?) and hummus too. Great postcards...really make you think.

Hopefully you will update us after your family meeting. It seems like your parents may have inadvertently put themselves in a messy situation. If your sibling makes capital gains on this money, it could pose further tax problems for your parents, possibly? I'm not an accountant...so I do not know. Maybe it is structured to look like a gift to your sibling? I think our limit in the US is $10,000 for a gift or something like that.

Our IRS is pretty formidable...I'm sure like Canada's. Wish you the best in resolving this situation.
