Today's 8/9/10. I love when dates do something fun like that.
I've turned into quite the bookworm this summer and I'm loving it. . . However, I am currently on the market for a new book. I just finished Redeeming Love, and have already read The Help, Firefly Lane, Charles Martin's latest book The Mountain Between Us (amazing!). Any ideas?
I got my dental bill from my misery a few weeks ago. Holy cavity!! If I already did not have enough reasons to brush harder, I officially do now.
After receiving said Christmas present from the dentist, I'm determined to get better about budgeting. Not quite the most fun topic, but I was wondering if any of you fellow readers had any suggestions. I've always been conscious of my spending, and have a close idea of what's in my account, so that's not the problem. I want to create a spreadsheet or something that allocates what portion of my income is going where (groceries, gas, fun, etc). . . So I can know what I'm spending. . . Does something like that exist?? A friend has suggested mint.com, but I just have not had a bunch of time to sit down and figure it out. What's your magic trick? Sometimes this real world with its big girl reality is tough!
Moving on to a happier subject- - -Tomorrow night, I'm throwing my culinary (in)expertise for a whirl and trying these slow cooker buffalo chicken sandwiches. I'm really excited to see how they turn out! This is definitely not something I've ever done before- I am totally inexperienced with the crockpot. But, I figured it was a great time to practice the recipe so hopefully I can whip them out at a tailgate this fall.
Speaking of tailgates, football season is almost here! Which means summer is almost over. What?!? Crazy how much time flies.
Anyways, I hope everyone is doing well. I'm so glad to see some new followers joined the bunch. :) Have a great week!
