As always, I am thrilled it is Friday :) In the process of creating Mr. Man's honey do list. I told him yesterday that we need to start being more "house proud". For the past few years we have always seen our house as a temporary home but with rising housing costs and our desire to travel more with the kiddos we have come to realize that giving the kiddos more life experiences versus a new home is more beneficial to them. Our house is perfectly fine, albeit a few repairs/refinishing that it needs. This summer, Mr. Man mentioned being able to tackle at least one item on the list every weekend. He is going to be a very busy man ;)
Anywho...this week we were determined to get by. We started out the week with little money and a need to grocery shop. Thankfully, my ebay sales were good and I also finally got around to selling some scrap gold. They were items I didn't intend on ever wearing again or needed repair. Nice bit of change :) I was able to grocery shop, buy some things we needed for our trip next month and gas.
Tomorrow I will be doing my big trip to the grocery store. I am going to stock up on meat and fruit/veggies. I'm also going to go through my coupons so I can continue stocking our pantry. The pic below is my first homemade chocolate cake. It came out okay...I don't think I'll ever make it again. Going to try a vanilla cake recipe this weekend. Hopefully with better results!
Have a great weekend :)
