I can’t believe what I saw this morning when I woke up. It was something I haven’t seen in forever. I really wasn’t sure what to do with myself. It was the SUN. Even though it’s still pretty chilly, the sun gives me hope that spring may finally make an … Keep Reading….
Hello Friends! Happy Hump Day! Something crazy has been happening here for the past couple of days and I’m not sure how we have been surviving. Our internet has been down. A couple of weeks ago, Lee and I switched our cable service and, with the package we chose, we … Keep Reading….
Hey Friends! Good afternoon!
We have made it to the middle of the week and it’s all downhill from here, right!? Today, we had a winter storm move in and dump many inches of snow but, then, the temperature went right back up and most of it has melted. Boo. If there is one thing I love, it’s a winter storm and, unfortunately, I don’t feel like we have had enough lately. Oh well. I guess warmer temperatures just mean that summer is on the way!
Even though we had a deep blanket of the white stuff this morning, I woke up and wanted an iced coffee. I have not craved one of those in a long time so I didn’t even fight in and just made myself one! I counteracted my cold coffee with a warm bowl of oats. I added a couple of drops of NuNatural’s liquid Cocoa Stevia, some honey, and a scoop of PB.
I spent most of my morning reading some blogs and going over some new Jazzercise routines. A few hours later, I was hungry again and decided it was time to throw some lunch together. I had some peppers that were starting to wilt so I decided to use them in a quick quinoa pilaf. I made regular quinoa but added some chicken bouillon, red and yellow bell peppers, black eyed peas, and mushrooms. It was delicious, filling, and a great way to use up the left over veggies and beans!
I had to go into work later in the afternoon and Lee had a couple of court cases so we rode in together. On the way there and back, we were discussing our finances and the fact that our wedding is SO close!! Less than three months!? Are you serious!? Anyway, we were talking about our bills and how we could save a few more bucks every month. I hate conversations about money. I mean, absolutely loathe them. Oh well. Those are the things adults need to deal with!
We just switched our cable company last week, which is going to save us about $70 a month (and we even added a phone line!! We were paying WAY too much!) and I have been meal planning, which has been saving us a little more when it comes to grocery shopping. We have decided to look over our cell phone bills and also our car and home insurance to see if there are any costs that we can cut there. I’m hoping we can find a few more ways to save…Every little bit helps!
Alright, well, I’m off to get some dinner in the oven and plan out my workout for the evening! I’m thinking TurboFire…
See you all later!
With much Love and Laughter,
Something to share: Please share your budgeting tips and tricks! Do you make a budget? Have you found ways to cut your spending? Is there anything you sacrifice each month to save a few dollars?
I had no creativity with my title today, obviously. It is what it is. I’m off of work today and I made some protein pancakes for breakfast. Sometimes, it’s just better to be direct, right? I’m glad that I have the day off today. Usually, I can take them or … Keep Reading….
Ahhh. Saturdays with no plans. Is there anything better? So, I hate to start today off with a gripe but I’m going to anyway. In our town, most people do not have mailboxes…we all have post office boxes at the post office. Now, there are some post offices that have … Keep Reading….
So…I have a bit of a problem. Sometimes, I’m lazy. Like, really lazy. I walk into the kitchen because I’m hungry and when I open every cabinet and find nothing that is ‘ready to eat’, I retreat back to where I came from because I just don’t want to make … Keep Reading….
Hi Friends! This past weekend, I did something that I apparently do every March. I broke out the pumpkin. Last year, on March 10th, I made Pumpkin Bread with Cinnamon-Vanilla Glaze, and here we are again…at the beginning of March, cracking open a can of pumpkin. I’m not exactly sure what … Keep Reading….
Happy Thursday, Friends! Has this week been flying for anyone else? My days at work have been crazy and, before I know it, it’s time to go home! Honestly, though, can we really complain about something like that? Now, those times when the clock is just ticking by as slow … Keep Reading….
Hi Friends! It’s a pretty calm Saturday around here. Well, maybe calm inside. It is currently snowing so hard that I can’t see the house across the street. Blizzard conditions over here! I can’t say that I don’t like it. I’m excited to finally have some snow…and not just … Keep Reading….
Happy Saturday! Hel-looo weekend! I started my day off with an early Jazzercise class. I didn’t teach it, but I love taking class from other instructors. It’s nice to just go there and have a relaxing time and do nothing but workout without having thoughts of routines, counts, students, etc. … Keep Reading….
