NO SPEND MONTH ~MAY

I just ordered my camera battery so I am hopeful that I will have something to show you soon. I do have some news though for whoever is reading....I have decided that May will be my "No Spend Month". I will budget a certain amount for gas and minimal for food ( we will have to be creative with what's in the house) and I vow not to spend anything on impulse purchases for the entire month! That means no going to Target and only getting things that are necessities. I will of course have to share this with the kids, Jordan I don't foresee having a problem, Colby on the other hand will take some adjusting. The hardest sell will be myself. I am confident that there will be nothing I absolutely "need" but I am sure I will find a lot of "WANTS" It is Jerry's birthday month but I am sure he will understand (right honey?) he is the one who has made me the budget conscious girl that I am(aspire to be) after all! During this month I will track my spending by the week, of course I will pay household bills, insurance,credit cards etc... this is purely the "other" spending that I am curtailing. I am hopeful that it will make me appreciate (and use) what I have.
Wish me luck! I will BBL with some pics, (as soon as my battery charger gets here!)

Treasure Each Moment

I am sooo sorry I have not been on in such a long time! I have been running around doing everything but what else is new? My camera is still broken and I have not been able to share my creations, but I have been creating, just not sharing. Life is good....I am looking forward to the summer, this year I have two vacations planned, making up for last year, I can't believe I did not go away last year, that is a first.
I know I have mentioned my cruise to Bermuda with Jordan,my Aunt Betty and cousin Judyya, I am soo looking forward to that!

I am also going to CABO SAN LUCAS with the BF {did I tell you how adorable and loving he is :) }, I am REALLY LOOKING FORWARD TO THAT!! OK, I don't want to sound too excited but the place is gorgeous,beautifu, breathtaking! I will be sure to take lots of pics, I have already started an album for both trips.

One thing I am not happy about is the grass growing in my yard, well I am happy I have grass but this year I have vowed not to hire someone to cut my lawn when I have a willing and able 17 year old who needs to start working for gas money. Today was a SMH day, he doesn't know how to start the lawn mower up! I am smiling because I know this part of his life only happens once and I adore him so, all I can do is smile and hope he figures it out, I am putting that responsibility on him and I will keep you posted.
In the meantime, Jordan just learned to do a cartwheel and she is soooo excited, again, I am smiling because that too only happens once in life, and the fact that it has brought so much joy to her world, the simple fact that she can now do a cartwheel, what will it be next year?
Enjoy each day with your loved ones, don't count down the days too quickly. This day only comes once in a lifetime...Until later ....smoochers
