How was your weekend? I hope it was good. I can’t believe it’s already Monday. How’d that happen? Then again, I can’t believe it’s already the second week of November either. Crazy.
I was in Target yesterday, and my eyes lit up seeing all the sparkles! I’m not ready for all this Christmas stuff, but I have to admit, if we’re going to look at flashy decor for two months, at least it’s pretty!
I love the festivities as much as the next girl, but holidays bring worries for a lot of people. Luckily none of my worries are serious enough to dampen my celebrations, but there is one Kevin and I have been discussing lately. Money.
Our budgeting discussions, mainly just recapping this year’s expenses and forecasting 2013, gave me an idea for a new Tuesday series - Healthy Girl on a Budget. Is that something y’all would be interested in reading?
Speaking of health… I kinda’-sorta’ followed this recipe last night, and this turned out to be a fabulous, healthy, vegan, affordable dinner. Score! (Two of my changes: significantly less oil, no zucchini, no eggplant, one bell pepper)
Speaking of dinner… the girls and I hit up 5 Church on Friday night. The salad was great, but my butternut squash pierogies were more like emanadas. Not bad – just not what I was expecting.
Cheers to girls’ nights!
