Favorite Things...

Here are a few of my Favorite Things from the month of December!

ONE -  Really getting into monthly meal planning.  It's something that I started last month but really got the hang of this month.  Before, I would go grocery shopping once / week, but now I go once / month.  Making this change actually saves a lot of money and I feel that we eat better because of it too.  I can't wait to discuss this more next year!

TWO - Receiving our business license for Ever Green Cleaning, LLC.  It must have gotten lost in the mail because we had been waiting on it for a couple of weeks.  Now that we have it there is absolutely no excuse as to why we can't truly get things's a little scary and exciting all at the same time!

THREE - Celebrating Christmas for the very first time as a wife, mom and homeowner all in one :)!  This photo of the little lady below is my favorite one from Christmas.  She has played with this alphabet train and it's blocks non-stop since we opened it...we did GOOD, real good...with just three gifts!!!

FOUR - These photos of our ladybug the day after Christmas!  I just love her in hats...

FIVE Realizing how much fun blogging can be (although it is a lot more work than I could have imagined too)!  Through this blog I've been able to tell my / our story, vent (this is truly an outlet for me), encourage / inspire, be encouraged and so much more!!!  I've met some amazing people and I've even learned a lot of things along the way.  I'm so excited to see where this little blog of mine will take me in 2013.  The possibilities (for it and life, in general) are endless...this blog has shown me that!

You know I love hearing this song on Friday, stay at home mom or not!
