Two no spend days but most of everything was budgeted for. And apparently I was only $3 under my grocery budget but that’s so much better than normal. Normally I’m about $20 over—if not more. And at the bookstore, I bought a book out of my personal money by one of my favorite authors. That means it was on the approved list so I feel good about that. The second part of that purchase was a gift for the upcoming baby shower—I found a great treasury of children’s tales with some beautiful pictures. I usually buy books for kids as I am a huge reader and I want to pass that love on.
In other news, the no soda thing is going okay. I bought a big box of tea for the same price as my soda normally is. I made a pitcher of ice tea and have been sticking with that and so far the cravings are going away! Now if only the tiredness would leave.
I went to the guy’s cousin’s wedding this Saturday and had some fun. I also know a few things I don’t want to do at my wedding—but mine is going to be on a smaller scale as it is. It was beautiful though. How was your weekend?
