Sunday Money Roundup – One More Week Till Mexico Edition.

In about 8 days, my wife and I are leaving for Mexico to go to a friends wedding…and take a vacation, at the same time. Since we are flying all the way down there anyway, we decided to tack on a few extra days for ourselves. I cannot wait! While I sit around watching the calendar, check out some articles I found interesting this week.

    Can you write more about your health insurance plan and the company that you got it from and how you went about choosing it and the alternatives you considered?
