Oh Hai There

What up tho?!!

Nothing much shangalanging in the A for us but house hunting. Like obsessed with it. This process is so exhausting but I know the perfect house is out there…I hope. Check out the house hunting vlog if you need the most recent developments on our house situation. *longest sigh ev.er*

The kids haven’t managed to kill me yet but we are just two weeks into summer vacay. However RIP to the grocery bill. I mean, these folks just eat all day but I got something for them next week.

My stepdaughter goes to camp, cause a moody preteen around the house all day is no fun, but neither is shelling out $400 a month when I’m home all day…..I digress.

Moving on.

We found our way to the Children’s Museum on Tuesday and the little ones had a ball. Wore me out. They have an awesome exhibit running from now to September. If you are in the Atlanta area I recommend you take your children.

Thank you all for hanging in there with these sponsored posts. Y’all do know whenever we find a house it will need paint, curtains, mortgage payments… I appreciate y’all. I really do.

We have been on strict spending privileges…read if it isn’t a necessity it’s not being bought and quietly it hasn’t been so bad. Saving is a hard habit to get into but when you start seeing that bank account on swole the game changes.

Other than that I’ve been laying as low as I can chilling. What’s up with you? What’s good in your hood?

Oh, I did post this from my iPhone. Any errors, charge it to the game.

    I got nothing to say about the 400 that could be added to the swole. Kids haven’t bothered me to much I am actually saving money on food since I don’t have to buy anything for my son for lunch we get up late so there is no lunch they get brunch and dinner that’s it around these parts.

    We’re just over here trying to keep a 2 year old entertained while not getting heat stroke.
    The saving game takes a bit to get started, but like you said, once you see those $ rolling in you start not to want to spend anything. Like ANY thing.

    we’re all about budgeting and saving, so I’m definitely with that plan! go you! I hope that you guys are able to find something soon, to help minimize that stress. the $400 may not be pretty, but if it’s saving everybody’s sanity….we’re just gonna call that a necessary expense! we’re gonna have to check out the museum

    I’m on the floor right now “any errors charge it to the game” LOL… I totally understand about the savings, and camp. My mini me will be gone half of the day, and back home for the rest…

    I can feel ya on saving money– we’re on a spending freeze too— that’s why I hit up Pinterest for as many FREE activities to do with the kiddos this summer and thank God my boys won a free membership to the Zoo this year or my poor babies would have to miss out!

    SN: you better start couponing 🙂 lol

    I think of saving as a game. It really is easy to eliminate some things we think we can’t live without and then when you see the benefit, it motivates you to save more or differently.

    I don’t mind the sponsored posts at all. We all have bills that need to be paid. I say get that money! Hope all goes well with the house hunting and that you all find the dream home.

    I’m with Christina on chalking that $400 up as a necessary expense.
