Monday was my first day of school!! AHHH!! It still feels weird to say that. When I graduated college in 2008 I told myself I was NEVER going back to school (and I lied to myself that time as I’ve taken random classes of stuff before now). I was burnt out and had enough! HA like they say when you plan, God Laughs because here I am again! So far it’s going good but it’s only the first week we haven’t done anything too hard and I’m only taking 2 classes this semester. But I LOVE learning. I would be a perpetual student if they paid me.

I remember a year or so ago Jen hosted a Link-Up for Nerds. Basically it was people posting pictures of their desks/work areas from where they write or blog from. I remember I was out of town when she posted it and the link-up closed before I could post and I was really bummed. Well I did some reorganizing and with it I inherited an unused monitor that I connected to my new laptop to make it a double screen monitor. Whahahaha I feel really efficient now. I love it!! So here is my contribution:

In one of my blogging groups someone posted the #BoostYourBlog Challenge. Everyday there is a different writing prompt for you to post on your blog. So far I have participated in Day 7 – Your Favorite Time of Day and Day 10 – Ten Years From Now… So far I have enjoyed participating. Somedays it’s nice to have just a really simple writing prompt to write from. I’m hoping to post some more as the month/year progresses.
Over on my Couponing blog I posted about my 2012 Grocery Budget Results. I think i did pretty well. I hope I’m able to do just as good in 2013 and got super excited to put my first shopping trips results into my new spreadsheet this week.
Last weekend I finally upgraded my Mac’s software to Mountain Lion and I LOVE IT! The coolest thing is you can tweet and facebook from the desktop now (kind of like how the new notifications on the iphone). I can also iMessage people from my computer which is cool for when I want to text people that have iMessage and I don’t feel like using my phone. Yes Apple knows how to make me even more lazy.
I found this cool craft on Pinterest I think I am going to try and make and I may even do a version of it with the confirmation kids whahahaha
