I'm so grateful that we have an elliptical machine at our house. The first major housewarming purchase I made when Husband bought our house was an elliptical. It has definitely paid for itself over the years. This week, it was in the 90s after work and since I was sick over the weekend, I just couldn't stomach the idea of running in such heat. I'm so glad that I could use this machine to keep up my cardio and not overheat with an outside run.
I'm sooooo thankful for Hobby Lobby. This store just has it all and it has been a lifesaver this week. I made a couple of gifts for my mom's birthday and stocked up on supplies at Hobby Lobby. Of course I also spent too much on craft ideas for myself but I figure, making things can cost the same as buying something somewhere or save money but either way, it's giving me something to do! This week I'm working on bracelets! And of course my mom's presents :)
We are having tons of people in town this weekend for my mom's party and several are staying at my house. Since we have been traveling so much lately, I have barely had time at home and even less time to really deep-clean my house. My wonderful mother paid for her maid to come and clean my house this week and it was amazing!!! She cleaned things that I normally just don't get around to - like dusting everything and wiping down our entire trashcan! It's soo nice to come home to a clean house. Thanks, Mom. It was perfect!
My September Birchbox goodies
Yesterday I got my first Birchbox! I signed up to receive a monthly box with all sorts of goodies after a bit of prodding (there really wasn't too much needed) from my friend Jennifer. We figured we could compare what we got each month and then enjoy all the goodies! I was pleased with my first box and I'm hoping that next month is just as good! I'm thankful that Jennifer talked me into trying this out because it is definitely fun to have a little surprise of girly goods delivered to your door!
Loving and learning a little more each day.
