OK, the money is now in Vanguard. For now I threw it in the 2040 retirement account, but I am already starting to fret that I should have a better allocation than that.

The breakdown of the 2040 is pretty simple:

Vanguard Total Stock Market Index Fund Investor Shares 63.1%
Total International Stock Index Fund Investor Shares 26.9%
Vanguard Total Bond Market II Index Fund Investor Shares 10.0%

A 90% stock portfolio is pretty aggressive, even for a 30-year-old. Just leave it alone, and you'll have more money than you know what to do with with you're 65.
