Weekly Money Checkup

1. The most I’ve spent this last week was on gas...my husband was on vacation to a music festival with a friend so I was extra good.


2. Today I am thankful I am home and got to sleep in my own bed last night. Bonus was my husband arrived home last night from his adventure/vacation that he was gone on. 


3. Money can’t buy happiness. One free thing I did last week that made me happy was decorate my moms bulletin boards. I not only did her's but I did all the hallway ones for the entire third grade at her school. Sounds tedious but I really like doing it and she HATES it.

4. I will consider this week a success if I finish the hemming process of my sisters wedding dress. I need to go buy thread for the outer layer and am waiting on my serger to get back from the sewing doctor to do the very interior lining. I also need to make a few mock up jackets to go with it so she can choose which one I make with her extra dress fabric. Not to mention I am still working on jewelry for all the bridesmaids. At least I got my mom's dress altered and done.

5. If I had today off ??? Technically since I work at home for myself I could always have the day off if I was a slacker. I am not sure if my life doesn't work that way or I don't. I always have lists of things I need to get done. My list for the next month is FULL. Since I have the ability to be flexible I can help get my sisters wedding ready, I have been WAY more involved with her's than my own sadly. I need to get the wedding stuff done hopefully this week so I can work on my inventory for a show in October. I have been slacking in working for myself since I have been so busy helping.


I have photos and a my notes from my husband and I on my recipe adventure that I will try and share by Wednesday. I was away from home for 5 days and didn't have much time to be on the computer. Hope you have a GREAT week!
