My only "complaint" about your set up is bond funds. I'm totally against bond funds. You run the risk of losing principle just like an equity fund. Plus you can almost match the bond fund return with a CD.

YES! With bond yields at current lows, the potiental for loss in a bond fund is more than buying the NAS at the peak of the bubble. Well, almost that bad. If the Fed rate goes to 5%, a bond fund could easliy lose 50% of its value. I wouldn't touch a bond fund.
