I like to think we live a modest life. I am sure there are others who live more modestly, but I think we do pretty well. We have all our needs met and a lot of our wants. If there is something new we want, we usually get it, we don't have much consumer debt, and the small amount we have we are diligently working at while NOT accumulating more. I have a hard time with wanting, Im sure we all do to a point. But my biggest want right now is a luxury vacation. Blue water, white sand, beauty all around. Not a 5 star place with every amenity, just a 4 day paradise getaway. Im not asking for blue diamonds or anything. I just want a honeymoon with my husband, we missed out on this when we got married since we had a 4 month old little girl who needed us. As you know we wished for this for our 10 year anniversary (November), but it didn't happen. So instead I will HOPE for it for our 11 year anniversary that will be on's gotta be special with all those 11's right???;)
AHHHH...a girl can dream!

Job looking....still

I am still looking for a job, one that will suit me and my role as a mom. Boy is it hard! I really just want to work at Starbucks (not a finance job or anything), and that doesn't seem to be working out. Bummer. If you know someone who works for Starbucks...I could use a hook up!!;) I know God has a plan for me, but it be nice if he'd clue me in...haha. No worries, I know He will, in time. I'm OK where I am, just want to be doing for for our financial stability, our bills are paid every month, but my husbands job isn't 100% stable, not sure being an owner of your own business is ever very stable.

I wonder if I'll get a job before it is time to have the kids home for the Summer??? Who knows!

Your feelings?

How do you feel about those fitness shoes??
First of all I think a lot of them are ugly, but they are coming around. Do you think they really help in your fitness level??
My mother in law has been wearing mbt shoes for a few years due to foot issues.
She says SO MANY people ask her if they work...she at first had no idea what they were talking about...then she realized people were asking her if they toned her legs or helped her loose weight like some other brands advertise.
We always joke that she should make up a story like "You wont believe it but I lost 100 pounds JUST from wearing these shoes, can you believe it??"
Haha that be funny huh??

Anyway...last Wednesday I started back at the gym and in 6 days Ive been there 4 times!!
I think I can, I think I can, I think I can loose some weight and tone up by this Summer!

Do you think I can??

Tis the Season

I am already seeing signs for prom dresses everywhere. Makes me sad to think those fun high school times were so long ago (I'll be 30 in March...gasp). But it is good because my mom is still looking for dress for my brothers wedding in April...waiting until the last minute is not a good idea, but it may just work out for us! Prime time!

So if anyone has any ideas were can look for CHEAP dresses for my mom please comment! We have a very limited budget! Used is fine as well. Also any tips for a cheap place for alteration since me and Merci need lots of help with that!
