STYLING: Sunday was my favorite saints feast day – St. Therese of Lisieux. She answers prayers by sending roses. Thanks to Blessed is She they posted this tutorial to make a flower crown that I am styling. Plus I was able to buy everything to make it at the dollar store. #BudgetWin
Also bought some Roses.
SAVING: MONEY?….for Christmas. I feel like money for this one is a copout for this one…but I opened YNAB (You Need A Budget) [my budgeting software yesterday and realized my Christmas budget is very underfunded! EEK! And Christmas is only 3 months away. #PANIC
SEARCHING: For my bookkeeping side business I’m currently creating a list of all the CPA’s and Restaurants in town to do a direct mailing. Talk about a PROJECT! Someone told me there are over 200 restaurants in this little tourist town I’m on a mission to see if they are right.
PICKING: OUT Halloween and Fall decor. I went to Michaels last weekend and got some cute pumpkin decor and Halloween Village decor. A few weeks ago I was at Ross and got some oven mitts and kitchen towels. The kitchen towels are awesome it’s a turkey saying, “Eat more beef!” And then I have a box outside in the shed I need to get out to finish decorating for Fall/Halloween this weekend.
MAKING: Painted Rocks. I found about this kindness project where people were painting rocks and then leaving them around town. I bought a HUGE bag of pebble rocks at Home Depot last month and then I started gathering paint and paint pens. Some of the paint pens I bought off amazon finally came last week so I’m going to work on painting more rocks this month.
- Hurricane Irma came through town. UGH. So many people had no power for almost 2 weeks! It was crazy. Including my place of work, it was rough.
- Thankfully we had no damage so it was pretty easy to bounce back to “normal.”
- We started a Young Adult Bible Study at my church and it’s been going well. My husband and I were asked to be on the core team and have been enjoying the planning of the events.
- We’ve started to go bowling again somewhat often and it’s been a fun thing to do to get out of the house and do and we’ve both been getting better.
