I think we all have those days (or weeks, or months….) when we feel like a failure. Nothing seems to be going the way you expected it to. Everything is wrong, you can’t seem to get a single thing right, and you just want to throw in the[…]

13 weeks to a better me

Fall has arrived full swing here in Washington, and I for one am LOVING it! I am more than happy to say goodbye to the heat and pull out my sweaters. However, with the changing seasons comes a lot of distractions for me. I have a tendency to be[…]

How I Make Money from Home with Minimal Effort

A few months ago, I wrote about my zero budget Christmas experiment that I’m trying this year. We are focused on paying down debt and saving money at this point in our life, and Christmas spending is always a huge slow-down that throws us off track. No matter[…]

13 weeks to a better me

Happy Sunday! It has been forever since I’ve posted an update for my challenge! I’ve unfortunately had to put it on a back burner, due to sickness (you can read all about it here). I have felt wiped out and barely able to get the basics done for about[…]

13 weeks to a better me

Summer is in full swing here in Washington! I must admit, I’ve been loving the warm weather! I normally prefer fall and winter, as I love so much about those seasons (pumpkin-everything, cozy sweaters, hot chocolate, and CHRISTMAS!! Just to name a few), but I’ve come to realize[…]
