What I've Been Up To

Good morning!

These last few days one of my best friends and her husband have been in town visiting, so I've been soaking up the time with them. Sorry for the delay in posting!

It is officially October! I absolutely love this month! In Albuquerque, we have something called the International Balloon Fiesta and it is a really huge deal here. Thousands of hot air balloon for a whole week and it starts on Saturday.

Here's a picture of two of my favorite balloons:

Aren't they adorable? I just love them! I've been going to the Balloon Fiesta since I was a little kid and it's still SO much fun!

My brother-in-law, sister-in-law and their two kids, Josh and Lily, are coming in town for part of the Fiesta. I can't wait to see two-year old Josh's reaction to the balloons! Lily is only a few months old, so she probably won't appreciate it as much, but you never know!

So, I've been stalking blogs like Money Saving Mom for a while now and have been quite convicted about the grocery bill that Jon and I rack up every month. I have been trying to cut it down for the last several months and have failed miserably every time! Not only could we use the extra money in savings, but it also frees up more for us to give if we do better in that area. I think that's the one place we go over every month in our budget.

I figure if this woman can feed her family (I think she has three kids) for $40 a week, Jon and I should definitely be able to do that! I'm going to write it here so maybe I'll be more proactive in sticking to it if I know you guys know how much I'm supposed to spend. :)

So, welcome to October! Do you have anything fun planned for this month?
