Our CVS shopping trip - 31 items for only $62.09

It's been a crazy time here at our home. Souwan and I have been battling with sinus and bronchitis sickness. I think i'm losing my voice too. Thankfully Haylee has a fantastic immune system and she has steered clear from all the sickness.

Thankfully it's a 3 day weekend. We have a fun filled weekend too. We're headed to Haylee's music and gym class, library, visit with family and friends, church, baby shower, children's museum! Wow!!! Maybe we over planned this weekend LOL.

What are your plans??

We had a fun Valentine's Day dinner at church, i'll post some of the photos here soon. They are on Facebook now & our church facebook page! Everyone looked so cute! You will have to check those photos out.

I have again forgotten to keep a weekly post on our coupon hauls. *sighs* Ok here is what we have gotten over the past couple weeks.

Here is my favorite part....Before coupons $207.79 After coupons $62.09!!!!!!!!!!!

Our financial goals update: We're making way on paying our smallest debt first. Souwan & I think we can get it paid by August this year. We would like to take on and finish the year paying 2 of our smallest debts off by the end of this year. It is still early to tell if we will stay on track. Last month we were over on our budget. On a celebratory note earlier this year Souwan finished paying his school loans off! Woooo!! Private schools are a beast and we're happy that it's done and it doesn't matter how long it took! Some words of encouragement: if you get off track from your budget, it's ok! Just start again! #2 put every extra bit towards knocking out your debt. #3 great education is worth every penny

my look back on 2017

2017 was a fantastic year! Sorry but there are ton of photos. More than years past!! We did so much this year and I wanted to get it all in. I love documenting our memories and being able to look back, reflect and cherish all of these moments.  It is the best part of this blog. I LOVE being able to look at these photos and go back to that time for a second. It's so cool how you look at a photo and all these feelings from that moment flood back to you!! SO MUCH FUN! I hope ya'll had a great year as well and if not... there is much to look forward in the New Year! It's a new beginning!

I'm probably going to write a long blog so sorry! 
Our year was full of so many joyful experiences. Our Winter, we received snow and Haylee got to go sledding for the first time. Haylee loved it and we had lot of fun with her. She did not want to come back inside. Souwan celebrated with a low key birthday at home with his new table grill. The Rowan Museum had an awesome exhibit on Cheerwi…

Nina + Bryan Meadow Creek Farm Wedding

We started the day with sun however we heard the rumbling thunder in the background during the ceremony and started to sprinkle during the reception. It was a humid September day and was sunny outside when I walked into the wedding venue. Bridesmaids laughter, sweet music, and popping of champagne were starting around the Bride's room. The girls were in their matching floral monogrammed robes and helping each other get their makeup done. They looked stunning!

My favorite part was their first look. Nina and Bryan have such a sweet relationship and they celebrated with so much love and joy through the day. I adored how sweet and caring they were during the day, he couldn't keep his eyes off of her during the first look. And she teared up, but had a huge smile standing with him during the first look. It was the best! I loved capturing them!!!

It was truly an honor to be capturing their day! It was such a beautiful wedding! Bryan and Nina were surrounded by so much love and joy fr…

Strawberry patch at Patterson Farm

This turned out to be a great day for the Strawberry patch at Patterson Farm! It was cloudy but warm and perfect for picking strawberries. It was calling for rain but we didn't see a drop thankfully. This was an early Mother's Day trip for us. We have come to this farm every year to pick strawberries and i'm so glad we had another great trip! 
Haylee told all of her friends she was going to the Strawberry patch and she was so excited! It's the perfect date or family outing. It's for everyone! Picking strawberries in the patch and having a homemade ice cream is a great way to spend quality time together. Hope you enjoy photos from our visit to Patterson Farm!
