Miss Priss has had croup for the past few days. She is in a sad state. Full of emotions and all those other goodies that a cold brings. You know tears, boogies, and spit...just the cool stuff those littles like to share with us Moms. When putting her to bed last night she was quite emotional and needed some songs to calm her down. Usually I do a little Winnie-the-Pooh or Twinkle Little Star, but Soft Kitty came to mind. Anyone know that song? Soft kitty, warm kitty, little ball of fur...happy kitty, funny kitty, purr purr purr. Sheldon would have been very proud.

On another note...I have joined the skinny jeans fashion revolution trend! I am quite proud. I got these from my sister-in-law via a yard sale. I can't get enough of skinny jeans now. Why has it taken me so long to try them!I know am on the search to get them in many colors!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend. It is a new month and I am prepping for my shopping trip on Tuesday. I will have a menu up tomorrow :)

  3. LOVE the look! I fell in LOVE with skinnies a while back and yet have never tried a colored pair, mine are all denim, I do have 1 white pair, and a few cords, but no colors like those you are wearing. LOVE THEM. Great post. Sorry your little is sick, all 4 of mine are sick too, been a long week of flu and ear infections! Have a great rest of the weekend!

  5. I am SO excited to start reading through your blog - beginning to end! My husband had a stroke in Jan. 2011, and although he receives SSD, our financial situation has grown steadily worse. we are filing for bankruptcy, BUT I am hopeful that once that process is complete, we can find a way to live on his SSD and my part-time income. I am so thrilled to hear that others, like yourself, make this work! Thank you for sharing your knowledge. :) Jen

  6. I've been reading your blog the past couple of days (btw, where have you been all my life?) and was surprised to see you pop up on Yahoo news this morning! Way to go!

  7. Hi Danielle! First off, you look fabulous and I love the jeans! I stumbled across your blog via pinterest this morning and I am hooked! Have spent the whole morning taking notes (saving money, meal plans etc)! I have an odd question and I was hoping you could give me some advice. We are getting married in a couple months, and I am finishing up the wedding registry. The usual 'things you need to register for' list is super overwhelming! I was wondering, what are some things you absolutely get ridiculous amounts of use out of? Things that I will actually use and need in the future, not just fancy china I won't use! I had never heard of a pressure cooker before your blog, so I registered for the same one you have, as we eat a LOT of beans. I registered for sheets and towels lol. But I'm really curious about what else I will ACTUALLY use. Food processor? I already have a slow cooker and blender. Anyway - totally random, I know. I just love your blog and feel like you could offer some good advice :D I've never left a comment on a blog before, so my email is kristenlees122@gmail.com -i read to leave your email address. Anyway! Thanks a bunch, and LOVE the blog.

    1. I think you just gave me a great idea for a post. I will work up a list of must haves for newbies. Is that kind of what you were thinking? Like if I could go back to my tell my newlywed self what to buy what would it be? Love that idea. I will work on a post. I am sure others have similar questions.

  8. Haha, I love that you sang soft kitty :) I'm going to have to add that one to my nightly song list...oh and skinny jeans are addictive. I now look at other jeans with disdain.

  14. I LOVE the skinny jeans. I hope Miss Priss feels better soon. Sheldon would be very proud. I just found your blog via Yahoo and am going to have to go back and read past posts. I currently have a teaching blog, but have been debating on whether or not to start another blog. You might inspire me to do so.

  15. We love Sheldon, and we love cats, but in one episode he ended up with like thirty cats. Maybe you should be careful with that song:) When I was a kid, I wanted every stray that walked by, even without the song.

    So I found you on the Yahoo, and I'm reading all the negative comments. They need to get a life or something. Anyway, we are all going to come here and ask you more details about the budget and your personal business, etc...

    Get this, some of the people were saying how if you didn't have money you should shop at Goodwill. Doh! Says right there in the article..."thrift"...so I can only guess that they just don't know that word.

    And some people were complaining that the article doesn't mention that you make an additional 15K from ads on the blog. And I was looking at the blog and not seeing that many ads, and some of the ads are not the by the month but only a sales percentage, which usually isn't that much. It seemed to me more like you were saying you would sell that many ads, not that you had sold that many ads. But it does seem like maybe there are a couple more than there were earlier this week. Good for you if there are.

  16. I love skiny jeans and I was a bit skeptical about the colored ones, since all of my tops are already very colorfull. Last year I got a pair of indigo colored skinnies and I wear them a lot!
    Btw, you top also looks adorable! Love the color!
