Weekly Money Checkup

1. The most I’ve spent this last week was on food/alcohol for my sisters wedding. Technically it wasn't my money as I had my mom's checkbook but I sure spent a lot!

Leftover wedding centerpiece, between my camera phone and getting messed up in the car it doesn't look as good :(
2. Today I am thankful I was able to sleep in my own bed last night. I was at my parents for almost a week before the wedding and I REALLY missed our bed and my own home.

3. Money can’t buy happiness. One free thing I did last week that made me happy was have the opportunity to help with my sisters wedding and participate since we finally live closer to where my husband and I grew up.

4. I will consider this week a success if I manage to take my husband shopping for work clothes. He needs several new pairs of pants for work, unfortunately he hates to shop. Because he is also super picky, really hates spending money and can't tell if things match it is not the most enjoyable trip. I can't put it off any longer as one of us threw something oily in the washer last week and ruined one his semi decent pants.

5. If I could have coffee with one (two) bloggers, I would choose Namine from The Clutter Box and my sister Cheryl from A Symbol-Using Animal . I know I could have great conversations with either or just relax and enjoy a good book. Besides I know they both LOVE coffee/Starbucks!

I FINALLY can share some pictures of our updates/upgrades in our house.
Free counter space where the old microwave used to live, I LOVE it! All my baking items are in the cabinet above so I have a baking area :) Jars are from World Market and storage hanging bar is from IKEA, all the utensils hanging were in a drawer that has more room now. 
Shiny new GAS stove and microwave! My AWESOME husband installed it while I was helping with the wedding. It will look even better when I put everything on the counter away! :) I cant wait to use it for dinner tonight!
Dining Room Rug (I can't remember if I shared it or not) It only took over 6 months to get here but it is really helping the room not sound hollow and it is staying cleaner. Now when I walk downstairs this rug is on the left side and the shiny stove is on the right side. It feels SO nice to get the things that you have been saving for. I feel so blessed!
Have a wonderful Week!
