If you could imagine your own funeral, what would it look like? Who would be there? What would they do to remember you?
After experiencing Cirque du Soleil’s Corteo, I realize your funeral is a representation of who you are, how you live your life and the people you surround yourself with.
We pinch our pennies a lot. And for a big trip… or even a small trip or event for that matter… I budget months in advance. That’s being frugal. It’s not about being cheap, it’s about saving and spending your money wisely.
So visiting a theme park… a super easy past time here in Florida… is a big deal for us and our budget. And a theme park needs to really impress us, for us to go back again.
Well, Legoland Florida does that. It’s already one of the most affordable theme parks in Florida. And they just added a brand new section to the park that is pure heaven for all Lego Movie fans. (That includes us. 😉 )
It’s Prime Day, Prime Day! (Imagine me singing and dancing. 😉 )
But seriously, I’m not one to pounce on sales and buy things just because they’re on sale. (Ok, sometimes. I won’t lie.) But what’s best is when there’s something you need and it’s in your budget and it’s a great deal! And Amazon Prime Day is great for that.
And who isn’t always looking for more craft supplies, am I right?!
Here are a few great Amazon Prime Day deals on craft supplies, good through July 15th and 16th (2019).
Sometimes you need a vacation after a vacation, am I right?! Especially when traveling with kids. 🙂 That’s why taking steps on your vacation to really relax, are so important.
Here are the steps I try to take to make sure my family trip feels less like work and more like a vacation.
Are you ready for Christmas?
No? Me neither.
Don’t worry, it’s still about six months away!
But what you do now to save money, could determine whether it’s a happy Christmas, or a Christmas like so many before it (if you’re like me)… a happy season, with underlying, nagging guilt, frustration, and anxiety over debt.
But start saving now, just a little every week, and you can start a snowball of savings. Here’s how I’m working on saving for Christmas in July.
I’ve been so giddy about the new Cricut Infusible Ink that I’ve been in a flurry of t-shirt making. Sounds like a crazy weekend, eh? 😄
So far I’ve made shirts in a variety of fabric types and colors… with varying results.
I’ll show you what has worked for me and what hasn’t.
I’ve been eagerly awaiting Cricut’s new Infusible Ink for weeks! I’ve watched a few Cricut sponsored videos on YouTube, but couldn’t wait to get my own hands on it and answer lots of questions rattling around my creative brain…
- Why use it?
- How do I use it?
- Do I have to use Cricut Easy Press?
- Do I have to use Cricut blanks?
- How cool is it, really?
Look no further, I will answer all of these questions for you.
Starting with the last question, first… yep, it’s REALLY, SUPER COOL!
We all know laundry is a pain. It’s the last chore we want to do and the one that ALWAYS needs to be done.
And with kids in the house who wear something for five minutes then chuck it into the hamper, it seems like there is so much laundry, there must surely be people living in our house that we don’t know about.
Nothing can throw a wrench in your routine more than kids being out of school for the summer. Whether they’re home all day or go to camp, the change in routines and the hotter weather calls for some adapting.
I know I definitely need to make things easier and more streamlined to avoid summer stress. Here are a few ways I adapt for a lower stress summer.
