Based on what's available to you in your 401(k), I'd say you've chosen well. Just keep on truckin'!

As for your Roth, you might explore basic S&P 500 ETF's, or other broad market index ETF's. Given your age, bond funds aren't particularly necessary (plus...I foresee higher interest rates in the future, so any bond holdings would suffer). The again, you seem to have made a solid choice, regardless. Keep reading, studying and investing!

I like the cut of your jib! Start early, save as much as you can...and you will likely be most satisfied decades down the road!
