We are homeowners!!

God works in mysterious ways!! Last Thursday we looked into a house that I have had my eyes on for a while. Yes, this was the pic I posted on project 365 week 3. So all weekend we thought about it and prayed 'bless it or block it' and we decided this morning we were going to go for it! So this morning the hubs called the guy back and said we were in. Well, he had bad news- thouse house was Sold. But- he also had good news! A bigger house, with more land in our price range! So Ryan Got the address And drove over to check it out. Needless to say, he loved it and we are officially homeowners! We have a few things we would Like to do but nothing major. And it has a DISHWASHER!!! Who is happy?? This girl here!!! Woot woot!! We are very excited and so thankful that we serve a great God!! Pics will be coming Soon. We sign the papers tomorrow so I will try toget better pics!

Home Organization Notebook/ Planner!

First of all, congrats to my cousin Abbi on her engagement!! She is going to be a beautiful bride!
I also have been Considering selling Scentsy! I know, I am So undecisive. It is such a big decision and I am
So afraid to fail that I always give up. Maybe this time I will actually go though with it. I hope to at least!
On to the fun stuff!
I have been dreaming if an Erin Condren planner. I never ended up buying one because I felt to guilty. So i started researching solutions to help get me organized! I am proud to say thag FINALLY ( a year later) I am organized and have a good schedule going that works great for my family! This binder has been a LIFESAVER! seriously, I am not always stressed anymore, everything is organized and has a home, and I am Having lots of time to play with lexi, craft, and just relax! Such a big difference it has made in a week. I hand made everything, so I am very happy with how it turned out. There are 5 sections- weeky planner, budget, meal Planning, calender, and misc.
The weekly planner section has 2 pages for every day of the week. It has a section for responsibilities, extras, chores, and meal planning for the day: it feels so nice to cross stuff off the list everyday!
The budget section is great! It is making us very accountable for whay we spend. I have one page lableled budget whuch has 4 sticky notes on the page: gas, food, bills, and etc. On the next page is a daily total of what we spent, the next page is weekly, and finally yearly! I am aleays scared to write on it so it stops me From Spending money! Ha! Whatever works right?!
The meal Planning section is really nice as well. I have a weekly plan, monthly, grocery list section. And a pocket for coupons. This has been amazing! The whole next week is full of new recipes.
The misc section has a list of weekly chores. And the calender section is pretty self explanatory. It really has been so amazing. I just wish I had done it sooner! I am Including a few pics to show ya :)
