Since I’m still trying to pay down some debt and save for a house at the same time, I’ve given myself a budget for blogging “hobbies”. As in I give myself $40-$50 a month to spend at the craft store. I exceeded my August budget way back in the beginning of August, since I made my chalkboard magnets, string art and hosted a giveaway. Therefore, I don’t really have much to craft these days, but after holding the Blogiversary survey I realized that half of you came here for the projects, and the other half of you came here to learn more about me. I already do the Weekend Wrap-Up’s which gives you all a glimpse into my life, but I thought since I don’t have anything going on this week, that I would join in on the Currently link party hosted by Harvesting Kale & This Amazing Day.
I barely ever cook, but I did just bake some blueberry muffins. They were out of a bag though, not from scratch. I desperately needed something to eat for breakfast at work, so I just grabbed the bag of mix and made them on Sunday morning. I have to say that I’m much better at mixing drinks together, than I am at cooking or baking. I might not be able to feed my husband one day, but I’ll definitely be able to get him drunk.
I haven’t had the time to read a book in awhile. The last book I read was The Best of Me by Nicholas Sparks which made me cry. All of his books make me cry. The only thing I’ve been reading lately is blogs, blogs and more blogs.
That we don’t hit any more bumps in the road money wise. Every time we get back on top of things, something happens, like I wreck my car, or break it, or Travis’ catches on fire. It’s a never ending cycle of dumping money into our cars. I just want to save money, apply for a mortgage and get the process rolling. We both want out of our apartment badly. I can’t stand the spiders anymore, or the feeling of living in a dungeon, and our refrigerator is starting to break, again. So, I’m wishing to win the lottery or wishing that the car gods would just leave me alone for awhile.
Going to Payless when the AirWalk moccasins come back out for the fall season, and buying every single color since my tan ones are falling apart. I Love AirWalk Moccasins. Probably going to wear them on my wedding day, it’s that kind of love. As I typed this, I went to Payless’ website to see if they are in, and they are! Ahhhh!
Inspiration. Our current apartment just makes me feel blah in the inspiration department. I’ve gotten to the point where I don’t want to hang anything, or do anything to it, since I know that we will be moving in hopefully 7 – 12 months. All I want to do is make wreaths, since that is something I can take with me and can work anywhere. I don’t want to make 2398294 wreaths though in the next year, that would be crazy. I guess I’m just itching to paint walls, plant a garden, and having the freedom to fix something the right right, instead of having a landlord to go thru, who fixes it half-assed-ly. Without the freedom for those things, I’m just… bleh.
What are you currently cooking, reading, wishing, considering & looking for?
