Great New Blog

I came across a great blog today that will be a great resource for saving money! This blog has great ideas on how to save money at the grocery story and the best way to use coupons. I even posted a button for this blog on my page so that other bloggers can use this site as a resource. I am looking forward to reading through this blog and coming away with some great money saving tips!

Custom Framing

Today I dropped off my diploma to have it custom framed. I picked out a great frame that is black and gold and looks great with my college diploma. Even though this challenge turned out to be a bit expensive ($96.62), I feel the custom framing is worth the money! And that amount is not even close to the thousands of dollars spent on tuition, books, room, and board while going to college. The framing should be done in about 2 weeks and then I can proudly hang my accomplishment on the wall!

I found this great website for free invitations! There are hundreds of different invites for all types of occasions. I found some great invites for book club and wine parties and so much more! I plan on using this website for invites in the future because the designs are adorable and the price is perfect... free!

Can't Wait for My Spa Day!

I am planning on enjoying an afternoon at the spa on May 8th, while I am in Salt Lake visiting for Mother's Day weekend. I have a gift certficate from Christmas that I have yet to use and I am looking forward to having a few spa treatments done and relaxing! The hardest part will be deciding which treatments to splurge on. I am thinking massage, facial, and possibily a pedicure! Oh... that all sounds amazing! I am going to make my appointments this week and then count down the days till spa time!

Great Link

In my research of starting a book club, I found this great link of information about how to start a book club and keep it going. This website offers great tips and tools on starting a book club, setting ground rules, ideas for discussion questions, and general information on book clubs. I plan on using this information to start my book club this summer. I am hoping to set the first book club date in late May or early June. Stay tuned for details in the coming months!

I Think I Need a Day Off

I think I need to take a day off from work and focus on completing some of my challenges. I always have the best intentions about working on challenges over the weekends, but usually life gets in the way! The weekends seem to be full of sleeping in, laundry, dishes, cleaning house, and spending time with family. I would love to take a Monday off and bake bread, read my current book, start planning one of my parties, and ride my road bike. I am going to look at my calendar and schedule myself a day to just focus on doing the things I love to do!
