Jan 8, 2012
It’s going to be a good year.
We had a good year in 2011 but I’m really looking forward to this year. Our family will be in for some big changes.
I did make a few goals and hopefully I can stick with them.
First is to read more. Millie loves to read and has a few books memorized and I’d like to see her learn a few more.
I’m currently reading ‘Bubbly on your budget” It’s proved to be a good read thus far. (I’m only in 3 chapters)
Another goal is to stick to a grocery budget. I’m not super great at keeping track of what we spend on food, and being pregnant I pretty much just buy whatever I see that looks good! So I’m trying to stick with a monthly goal of $150.00.
Coupons here we come!
I also plan to take more photos, with our real camera. Not our phones. I don’t think this will be too hard as we are having a baby in about 10 days. I should have plenty of messes and milestones to document over next few months.
We recently attended a wedding reception for our good friend Patrick. I don’t usually like weddings or receptions but we really like Patrick, so we decided to attend. We are thrilled for him and his new wife Ashlee; she seems to be a perfect lady for him! They did things a little different one of which was the bouquet toss. Rather than only have the single ladies up for the event she had all the girls and threw 12 flowers with prizes attached. Congrats to the happy couple! They also had the famous J- Dogs as their reception food. Mm
