Did you ever have to read "The Diary of Anne Frank" in school?  Honestly I wasn't really a fan... but it always made me imagine during my teen years, that something noteworthy about my life would also lead to my diaries being published post mortem. I'm sure my teenage ramblings would have been even more of a letdown than Anne Frank's (which boy did or did not talk to me isn't exactly riveting). But guess what? I realized that this blog is basically my own self-published diary. I don't even need to die first. (Although I may be just as embarrassed when I look back on it in a few years, so thank you and I'm sorry all at once.)

My name is Sarah. I'm a nerd, love free stuff, and get physically ill when people talk about needles or injuries. My dad instilled in me a love for music. My mom instilled in me a fear of escalators. I hate improper grammar, yet say things like, "That car almost crashed us." (I also blame that on my ELL mother.) A friend assessed me once as self-confident and that what you see is what you get. While I consider it a compliment, it also means I wear my heart on my sleeve, and I often say whatever is on my mind no matter how awkward it is. At least I'm not easily embarrassed. I still regret times my actions hurt others, but believe that Jesus is changing the parts of me that I cannot.

My husband, Jason, and I met in 2006 when we both started the same job within a few months. We've been married since 2011, and worked about 20 yards away from each other for almost ten years. We lived in DC for a while, and are now in the same Maryland suburb I grew up in. While we are both economists professionally, hence the blog name, I consider us economists at heart as well. Most decisions we make take way too long and involve spreadsheets, research, and trying to quantify the opportunity cost of all the options. Our love for new experiences keeps us itching to travel. We both care a lot about eating good food while trying to be healthy. We make fun of people who use the phrase "best brunch ever" seriously.  I'm lucky to have a husband who chooses to be amused at my quirks rather than be annoyed by them, although he may draw the line at my love for the Beastie Boys. 
I'm sorry if you were hoping for some insight on the actual economy. This blog is here to give me a chance to use the other side of my brain, help me remember things we've done, and hopefully share some of what I've learned along the way.
