Can't believe that next week is Christmas! Where did this year go?!?! I've been super busy getting everything ready for the big day and even preparing for the next year. I've really never been big on New Year's Resolutions, but I have a great idea for how to make our lives a little better and maybe even save some money in t
he coming year. I have discovered Pinterest, and am totally addicted. I saw an amazing idea, a menu board, and decided that we needed one! I have spent all week creating, and I still have some fine tuning to do, but it is up and I now know what we're going to have for dinner the rest of the m
number one question of every day was always "What's for dinner?" and I grew tired of trying to scramble and figure something out at the last minute. It will also hopefully aid in the weekly shopping trips. By knowing what we're making for dinner every day we will also know exactly what to get at the store, so I hope we'll save some money by getting what we need and not just a bunch of random crap. I know that there are days where we both are at work and it gets crazy at night, so those nights I've deemed either leftover nights or a very easy meal night.
I've also kinda put my foot down with DH's habit of buying lunch every day at work. I am guilty of this as well! I am making him get a lunch box and we're both going to start taking our lunch the majority of the time. It just adds up, even $5 a day for lunch. But know if we're cooking real dinners, we'll have plenty of leftovers for the week!

I have also been spending some time sewing, not as much as I would like, but I get to it when I can :) I just finished making my parents smallest dog a little coat, and I'm happy to say she seems to like it better than my puppy likes his (he acts like he's frozen as soon as I put it on him). It even has a little 'fur' on the 'collar' and it has a hood! Now she can stay warm in the cold weather outside, when she actually goes out there!
