1. The most I’ve spent this last week was on a whole bunch of stuff. Rent, tithing, cell phone, internet/cable, and some groceries. We spend about 75% of our monthly budget in the first week on bills. Is that the case for you?

2. Today I am thankful for a relaxing weekend. Honestly, last week was pretty crummy, so a low-key weekend was just what I needed.

3. Money can’t buy happiness. One free thing I did last week that made me happy was absolutely nothing on Saturday. And by nothing, I mean I woke up late, had two cups of coffee, went for a long bike ride, organized the house, and crocheted while watching a movie with J. It was perfect.

4. I will consider this week a success if I get ready for some friends in town this weekend! I love having visitors. :)

5. If I could change one thing about my home I’d add a fireplace. All I want to do on chilly nights is make a cozy fire, snuggle on the couch and listen to it crackle while reading a good book. So, dear friends, if you have this luxury, please use your fireplace for me this week!
