Day Trips, Saving money

Ocmulgee National Monument

As I mentioned in my post a few days ago, we are trying to go on day trips every Sunday before I start getting big and uncomfortable.

Frugal Friday (Aug 5-11)

We are pinching pennies these days, with the cost of our future (rental) home, and the process of moving to it, in mind.

Weekly Meal Plan {March 9-15}

I don't know why but I have had no motivation to meal plan this week or to try new dinner recipes. I guess I'm just wanting or needing to express my creative energy elsewhere right now. Anyway, Maggie helped kick me into gear and come up with dinners since I have to go grocery shopping… Continue reading Weekly Meal Plan {March 9-15}
