Life Update: Pregnancy (week 15) + our big foster care news!

Life Update: Pregnancy (week 15) + our big foster care news!
Welcome to my weekly life update where I share about my pregnancy & give you a peek into our life this past week. If you want to follow a lot more behind-the-scenes and real-time updates every week, be sure to follow my stories and posts on Instagram. 15 weeks and I’m not going to be able to camouflage this bump much longer. 😉 HIGHLIGHTS I had another doctor’s appointment. It was super routine, but my doctor was so encouraging about how healthy I am, how healthy the baby is, and how well I am doing. That was such a blessing! In 5 weeks, I go back for my big 20-week anatomy scan! NOTABLE I had one really rough day this past week but other than that I had a few hours of most days where I felt so good that I sort of forgot I was pregnant! I started sitting on the exercise ball this past week because I can tell that these hips are starting to feel the usual aches and pains of pregnancy. I discovered the power of sitting a few hours per day on an exercise ball and how much relief it provided for my tailbone/hip pain, so I’m trying to be proactive and start this early this time — especially since my hips are 11 years older than they were last time I was pregnant! 😉 CRAVINGS This week, it was all about meat and carbs. Seriously, I craved roast, chicken, and noodles. And I’m still totally into cheese and cottage cheese! WEIGHT GAIN: 7 pounds Our Big Foster Care News! After months and months of classes, homework, meetings, paperwork and more paperwork, doctor’s visits, TB testing, home visits, interviews, and hours and hours spent getting our home all set up and childproofed, we found out this past week that we our home is officially licensed as a foster home in TN!! We have no idea what the future holds for us when it comes to foster care, but we are excited to continue on in this step of faith and obedience. We’ve been praying for the children who will be placed in our home and trusting God that He’s got a beautiful plan that we can’t really dream or imagine right now. Obviously, there’s a lot I won’t be able to share about this journey in order to protect other family’s and kids’ privacy, but I will definitely share what I can while protecting the kids/families first and foremost (as that is one of our number one priorities as a foster home: to provide a safe place for kids and to pave the way for reunification). We know this is going to be stretching and we have no idea what to expect, but we are looking forward to seeing what God has for us in this and how He’s going to use it to grow our family and change our lives.

Life Update: Pregnancy (week 14), Hawaiian fun, Seussical
Welcome to my weekly life update where I share about my pregnancy & give you a peek into our life this past week. If you want to follow a lot more behind-the-scenes and real-time updates every week, be sure to follow my stories and posts on Instagram. 14 weeks — and officially into the second trimester!! (This isn’t the best pregnancy photo, but this is the only one I got this week so it will have to do. Jesse took it so I could post the amazing $10.95 deal on these shirts — the deal ends tonight!) HIGHLIGHTS The baby seemed to have a big growth spurt over the past 6 days. And we’ve officially hit the no more flat stomach in the morning stage. (Also, I cannot BELIEVE how much my stomach pops by the end of the day most days!! It’s like I grow by 5 inches! Okay, I haven’t actually measured, but that’s sure what it feels like!) NOTABLE I actually had a lot more energy than I’ve had in *weeks* the past few days!! And I’ve actually been craving salads and healthy food again. It feels SO good to be back to much more normal eating again. I was really, really sick to my stomach two mornings this past week, but it went away after a few hours and I am so grateful. CRAVINGS Cheese, sour cream, whipped, yogurt, milk, ice cream… notice a theme here? It’s a good thing I don’t have any dairy allergies!! WEIGHT GAIN: 6 pounds We have another doctor’s appointment in a few days, which I’m excited about. (I think pregnancy is probably one of the few times when you look forward to going to the doctor!) Our youth group hosted a Fall Festival for our church kids and the community. Each youth group small group chose a theme and dressed up, planned a game, and decorated our room for that theme. Can you guess what theme our group chose?? Around 200 kids came to the event and we were busy all night helping the kids play our game and passing out candy. It was such a fun night! These girls are just amazing and I’m so honored to get to be one of their small group leaders! One of the best parts of youth group is getting to co-lead our group with one of my best friends! If you need a laugh, go read this. Silas had his last baseball games of the fall season this past week. I loved how his coach spoke words of life over each boy at the end of the last game. Silas has been so blessed to have so many great coaches over the past few years who are so committed to pouring into young boys’ lives. Almost all of my girls from my youth group small group were performing in Seussical Jr. so of course I had to go cheer them on! Kaitlynn came with me to the show and we had so much fun together. I am always looking for opportunities to have one-on-one time with each of the kids. What I’m… Reading right now: Come Matter Here Watching right now: Figure skating! Listening to right now: I’ve been listening to Josh Groban and some Christmas music the past few days. Loving right now: The cooler fall temperatures — which means we can actually legitimately wear sweaters and boots!

Life Update: Pregnancy Update (Week 13) & the Spartan Race

Life Update: Pregnancy Update (Week 13) & the Spartan Race
Welcome to my weekly life update where I share about my pregnancy & give you a peek into our life this past week. If you want to follow a lot more behind-the-scenes and real-time updates every week, be sure to follow my stories and posts on Instagram. 13 weeks!!! And I had to have my picture taken in the kitchen because I COOKED DINNER three times this week!!! HIGHLIGHTS I feel like I came back to life this week and it is AMAZING to be functioning again at at least 50% of my normal pace compared to barely functioning the past 6 weeks. I forgot how good I used to feel! Also, I was able to start eating my daily salads again, which made me so happy!! CRAVINGS Um, should confess that my big craving this week was Taco Bell tacos again?!? NOTABLE Jesse’s dad (who owns a medical equipment servicing business) sent us a really fancy doppler that’s he’s letting us borrow for the pregnancy. It’s so amazing to get to hear the baby’s heartbeat at home! Also of note: I’ve outgrown the majority of my wardrobe. The maternity clothes I have are still huge on me, but I’m going to have to get creative with outfits over the next few weeks until I can fit into my maternity clothes! The kids continue to be so shocked by my growing size and I keep telling them they haven’t seen nothing yet! WEIGHT GAIN: 5.5 lbs. P.S. Do you consider the second trimester to start in week 13 or week 14?! The internet seems very conflicted on this. Jesse and Kathrynne ran the Spartan Race last week and had a blast doing it. Kathrynne ended up finishing a few minutes before Jesse! 🙂 Silas and Kaitlynn ran the Spartan Kids’ race while Jesse and Kathrynne ran their race and had a great time doing so! And the fun after the race… getting all cleaned up. 🙂 What I’m… Reading right now: I Will Always Write Back (I finished this and really enjoyed it, especially since I’m so passionate about South Africa. Do note that it has a little bit of language and somewhat more mature themes in it in places so I’d read through it before handing it off to a child to read.) Watching right now: Silas, Kaitlynn, and I have continued to enjoy watching The Masked Singer. We’ve also been watching Dancing with the Stars. Listening to right now: I’ve been listening to recent episodes of The Sorta Awesome show this week. Loving right now: Mint Majesty tea with cream and honey (someone sent this to me as a gift and it is SO good!)

Life Update: Pregnancy update (week 12), my book stack, & football
Welcome to my weekly life update where I share about my pregnancy & give you a peek into our life this past week. If you want to follow a lot more behind-the-scenes and real-time updates every week, be sure to follow my stories and posts on Instagram. 12 weeks! And our big news is that we found out the gender this week!!!* Knowing has made it so much more real to me, even though this whole pregnancy still feels crazy surreal and like a dream. HIGHLIGHTS I think we actually all may have agreed on a name!! It’s very different having older kids who have very strong opinions about these things! Also, the NIPT test came back perfect. And I had a little more energy and a little less nausea this week. NOTABLE I’m pretty sure I’m starting to feel those first few flutters. I didn’t for sure feel movement until 15 weeks with Silas, but I’m almost 99% sure that’s what I’m feeling. Also, my appetite has increased big time — which has been weird and I’m still trying to adjust. I’m usually the type of person who eats when I’m hungry and then eats until I’m satisfied. But right now, I feel hungry almost 90% of the time — even right after eating!! I’m so grateful to have the desire to eat, though, because it definitely has been super hit or miss for the last 6 weeks and most of the time I was just making myself eat so I wouldn’t feel worse because my stomach was empty. It’s so nice to actually *want* to eat much of the time now! CRAVINGS Oh goodness, have the cravings been intense this week. I feel like all I do is talk about and think about food. (This is SO unlike me! My kids keep saying, “Mom, you are so WEIRD when you are pregnant!”) Speaking of weird, yesterday and today I wanted a taco from Taco Bell. Y’all, I can’t remember the last time I’ve even eaten at Taco Bell!! But, thanks to Jesse, I had a taco for dinner AND breakfast (he was smart and just went and got a whole BAG of six tacos last night!!) WEGHT GAIN 4.5 pounds (I usually always gain around 30 lbs. and at the rate I’m going, I don’t think I’m going to have any issue doing that again.) *At this point, we don’t plan to share the gender before the birth. That could always change, but we kept it a family secret last time and it made it so special so we are thinking we’ll likely do that again. In other news, I bought this sweatshirt this week and can’t wait for it to come in the mail! And I was thrilled to once again feel well enough to go to the grocery store for a quick shopping trip! Silas played both baseball and flag football this season. His first playoff game was Friday night and their team won, just barely! So they move on to the next playoff bracket next week. What I’m… Reading right now: I Will Always Write Back and Come Matter Here (My book stack in my room is getting way too high — and then I have three shelves in the library full of books waiting to be read ASAP. I guess it’s a good problem!) Watching right now: Silas, Kaitlynn, and I have been watching The Masked Singer. Listening to right now: I finally came up first in line for Atomic Habits on the Libby app again, so I’ve been listening to the last hour and half of it (that I didn’t get to finish the last time I had it “checked out” on the Libby app). Loving right now: The fact that it was cool enough weather this past week to wear my favorite booties (shown above). In Case You Missed It: 30 Super Easy Ways to Save Money — what would you add to this list?? 30 Quick & Easy Protein Snacks — some of my favorite go-to’s! How to Finally Break Free From Anxiety & Stress — this is one of the most talked about episodes of the podcast I’ve ever shared! It’s SO good! Have you listened to it?

Life Update: Pregnancy (week 11) & a trip to South Africa & Herndon, VA

Life Update: Pregnancy (week 11) & a trip to South Africa & Herndon, VA
Welcome to my weekly life update where I share about my pregnancy & give you a peek into our life this past week. If you want to follow a lot more behind-the-scenes and real-time updates every week, be sure to follow my stories and posts on Instagram. In case you missed last week’s update, check it out here. 11 weeks! I’m so excited to be getting close to the 2nd trimester! This week was a week full of ups and downs. I had some really bad days and two surprisingly decent days where I actually had a few short windows where I didn’t feel nauseous. It was the most incredible feeling and, even though it was short-lived, it was just the encouragement I needed after having a really rough and discouraging week last week nausea-wise. (By the way, it seems that most people have told me that their nausea is always worst in the mornings. For some reason, mine gets progressively worse as the day goes on. By bedtime, it’s at the severe level and often keeps me up for a few hours. I don’t have any explanation for this but it’s how it’s been in all my pregnancies so I guess it just is what it is!) HIGHLIGHTS: I had another doctor’s appointment this week and another ultrasound. Since Jesse and Kathrynne are in South Africa, I took Silas and Kaitlynn with me to the appointment. It was exciting for them to get to see our baby on the screen! Also, my doctor says the baby has grown quite a bit & everything is looking so healthy. NOTABLE: We had the NIPT test done this week. We opted to do it for a variety of reasons, even though it’s not 100% accurate. One exciting side benefit: we should be finding out what we’re having in the next two weeks! We haven’t decided whether we’ll be telling people or not. We didn’t find out with either of the girls but chose to find out with Silas and decided that we preferred finding out to being surprised. However, with Silas, we decided to keep it a secret from everyone, including our extended family. We may or may not do that again. WEIGHT GAIN: A total of 4 pounds so far… which means that I have officially outgrown a lot of my clothes. I ordered a few new tunic tops from Amazon and a few new pairs of leggings. I also went through my closet and pared it down to the looser-fitting tops/bottoms I already own that I can still into comfortably. I’m guessing I’ll be transitioning to maternity clothes sometime in the next 4-6 weeks. (If I remember right, I usually start wearing them around 17-20 week but I feel like my belly has popped faster this pregnancy!) A Peek Into Our Week A number of you have asked for me to post a picture of Quill (our pet hedgehog). He’s doing so well and has grown so big. A Trip to South Africa Jesse and Kathrynne flew to South Africa on Wednesday to visit our friends there and see how things were going with the ministry we support there. (We usually go every year and it’s one of my favorite places ever, but for some reason, I didn’t feel a peace about going this year. It didn’t make any sense at all, but I just felt strongly that I wasn’t supposed to go… little did I know that it was going to be because I was pregnant!) They’ve been sending me pictures of their time there and I am just so happy for them. Jesse said that Kathrynne is having the best time and it warms my mama heart so much to see my girl halfway around the world loving on these kids and teens. While they’ve been gone, we stayed busy back here. I got to interview Aundi Kolber for next week’s podcast episode. I can’t wait for you to listen to this episode; it is fantastic! (Also, we looked like we were dressed for a gender reveal party or something! I didn’t even realize it until I looked at the picture we took together after she left!) I also was so excited one morning to feel well enough to go to Kroger quickly and pick up their Friday-Saturday deals! A Trip to Herdon, VA And then Kaitlynn and Silas flew with me to Herdon, VA for me to speak at the 2:1 conference. (I usually only bring one child with me on speaking engagements, but since they were both on fall break and Jesse and Kathrynne were gone, they both got to come with me!) One of the highlights of the conference was getting to meet Janet Benge, who has co-authored so many of the Christian Heroes Then and Now books. I had to get a picture for my mom. I loved getting to do a breakout workshop about exploding your engagement on Instagram! The attendees were the best and I could have stayed for another hour or two and answered all the questions I didn’t get to answer during the session and at the end! One of my favorite things is getting to help others also fall in love with the power of Instagram. Speaking of which, are you following me on Instagram? If not, you’re missing out as I share lots of behind-the-scenes, money-saving deals, and real-time updates there… many that I never get space to share here on the blog! I also gave the morning keynote sharing how my parents impacted my life and the power of legacy. What I’m… Reading right now: The Only Plane in the Sky (Note: This has a little bit of language in it, but it is a very worthwhile read and I would highly recommend it.) Watching right now: Have you seen the Enneagram Rhapsody? Multiple sent it to me this week and I had to laugh because there was so much truth in it. If you are an Enneagram fan, you’ll probably love it, if you haven’t seen it yet. 🙂 Listening to right now: This week, I’ve been listening to the Serene and Pearl UnShow at night when I have trouble sleeping because of nausea. I love the Trim Healthy Mama podcast and their quirky sense of humor and the way they disagree with one another and tease one another. (A lot of people are annoyed with how they talk over each other on their podcast. I happen to love it — probably because I grew up in a large family and we are always talking over each other and teasing one another mercilessly!) Loving right now: This kimono (I have it on in the photo at the top of this post. It’s perfect to dress up an outfit, so comfortable, and is something I’ve worn multiple times in the last month!) What are YOU reading, watching, listening to, and loving right now? I’d love to hear! In Case You Missed It: Guess what? I actually went to Kroger!

Life Update: Pregnancy (week 10), Downton Abbey, Science Fair, and Armadillos
This post may contain affiliate links. Read my disclosure policy here. Welcome to my weekly life update where I share about my pregnancy & give you a peek into our life this past week. If you want to follow a lot more behind-the-scenes and real-time updates every week, be sure to follow my stories and posts on Instagram. In case you missed last week’s update, check it out here. 10 WEEKS! Double digits and 25% of the way done, people! I was too sick last night to get a picture like I usually do, so here’s one sporting my outfit of the day today. 😉 I decided it was actually perfect to represent my week. Because it was a rough one, nausea-wise and exhaustion-wise. HIGHLIGHTS: Getting to see another ultrasound of our baby on my birthday. (My doctor had me come in for some testing to make sure all was well since I had been feeling so poorly. Our baby has grown so much and is looking so healthy! I still can’t believe that I’m actually pregnant. It’s just surreal!) Also, my second round of labs came back and my hemoglobin hadn’t gone down anymore but had actually gone up a tiny bit — which we were so excited about! It seems that using the cast iron pan and taking a double dose of Slow-Fe with orange juice daily is actually working! NOTABLE THIS WEEK: I have moved multiple clothes from my closet into the storage section because they either don’t fit anymore or are super uncomfortable. I also think I’m mostly going to be living in leggings and workout shorts for the next month or two until I can switch to maternity jeans/pants. CRAVINGS: Cottage cheese and Chick-fil-A honey barbecue sauce (not together!). I also am still usually able to eat Cracker Barrel pancakes (my brother and sister-in-law sent me a box of the mix and it legitimately tastes just like their pancakes!), macaroni & cheese + this week I added in Cream of Wheat and dry cereal. Apparently, this baby likes super bland food that is all the same color! 🤣 I’m still struggling to get enough liquids in (because most of them taste disgusting to me!), but this week I have found that drinking watered down juice or lemonade with ice works some of the time and I’ve also been able to eat/drink chicken broth or popsicles some of the time, too. WEIGHT GAIN: Even though I feel bigger this week and my clothes are fitting differently, I’m still holding steady at 3 pounds gained. How are the rest of you pregnant mamas doing? If you’re expecting, I’d love to hear when you’re due and how you’re doing! In other news, Jesse and I went to see the Downton Abbey movie for my birthday. We were both such big fans of the show so it was fun to see the actors/actresses altogether on screen again. The theater was packed out for a 1 p.m. on Tuesday showing… and Jesse was one of the only guys there. But we didn’t care! We discovered we have at least one armadillo that has been roaming around our house! We have seen him two nights so far this week. I’ve never seen one anywhere near our house so we thought it was cool at first… only to find out they are very destructive and not the kind of rodent you want living near your house! Silas had his last flag football game of the regular season this week. He’s been doing both baseball and football this Fall, so that has kept him quite busy. He also had his Science Fair on Friday. This year, their school made a change that parents weren’t allowed to help and all of the Science Fair work had to be done at school. So I hadn’t even seen any of his project before Friday! I was very proud of how it turned out and what he learned through it. And he did a great job on his presentation. What I’m… Reading right now: Try Softer (Also, my other reading this week was going through ALL 94 resources in the Genius Blogger’s Toolkit. I posted my top picks here and here. This Toolkit is only available until Monday.) Watching right now: World’s Gymnastics Competition Listening to right now: The quiet evening breeze coming from the open window. (It finally cooled down here enough in TN that we can have our windows open at night. It’s amazing!!) Loving right now: Hearing my husband playing and laughing and joking with the kids upstairs. In Case You Missed It: 10 Things I Learned When I Was 37 — In honor of my birthday this week. And wow! It’s been a big year! 8 Ways to Get Books for Free (or Almost-Free!) — Do you love reading but also want to make sure you don’t break your budget with book purchases?

When Can I Retire If I Was Born in 1960?
If you were born in 1960 or later, your full retirement age is 67 for Social Security. For most people born in 1960, the retirement window starts in 2022, when they can begin taking Social Security benefits early, or as late as 2030, when benefits hit their peak. Of course, if your finances permit, you... Liz Weston is a writer at NerdWallet. Email: lweston@nerdwallet.com. Twitter: @lizweston.

If Your Credit Score Is Under 700, Make These 3 Moves This Week

If Your Credit Score Is Under 700, Make These 3 Moves This Week
You work hard to be a responsible credit user.  You pay your bills on time; you try to use your credit card only when you have to; and you have a few different credit accounts, all in good standing. You even know what a credit utilization ratio is and why it matters. That’s some next-level credit card management! But no matter what you do, your credit score never budges over 700.  And you are so, so frustrated by the whole dang thing. We don’t blame you. It’s hard to feel like you’re doing everything you’re supposed to, only to have an algorithm spit out a seemingly inexplicable three-digit number that brands you as “lesser than” in the eyes of the world’s financial institutions — especially when that three-digit number controls so much of your life. But don’t give up! These three moves might be the kickstart you need to get your credit score moving in the right direction — and best of all, you can do them right this week. 1. Write a “Goodwill Letter” to Your Creditors If your credit history is generally pretty good, save for a couple of missteps, then a well-executed goodwill letter may be one way to get those slip-ups removed from your report.  You’ll want to cover the following bases when writing your goodwill letter: Explain why and how long you have been a loyal customer of the creditor. Take responsibility for the mistakes that led to the blemishes on your credit history. Describe the steps you are taking to ensure they don’t happen again. Appeal to your audience’s sense of empathy. Show that you want forgiveness but also that you are determined to do better going forward. Show them you deserve this! Keep your letter concise, clear and to the point. Don’t forget to include important information, like your account number and the date and amount of the missed payment you want removed from your credit history. Once you’ve written your goodwill letter, address it using the information on the creditor’s website, cross your fingers for good luck, and drop it in the mailbox.   2. Check Your Credit Report for Errors Credit reporting agencies generally do a pretty thorough job of collecting your credit history, but that doesn’t mean they are infallible. In fact, one out of five credit reports has an error, according to a study by the Federal Trade Commission. And those errors could mean the difference between a credit score in the 600s and one in the 700s. Jamie Cattanach saw this firsthand as a victim of identity theft. She pulled her credit report and saw her score had plummeted to just below 600 after someone opened an AT&T account using her information. She got to work disputing the errors, and after writing just one letter, she was on the road to rebuilding her credit. Within a few years, her credit score was well over 700. To keep a closer eye on your credit, get your credit score and a “credit report card” for free from Credit Sesame. It breaks down exactly what’s on your credit report in layman’s terms, how it affects your score and how to address it. Because it simplifies everything, you should be able to spot any errors. For instance, if you find an “unpaid” credit card that you know you paid, or a bill in collections you know never existed, you can dispute the incorrect information and raise your credit score. The proof is in the numbers: 60% of Credit Sesame members see an increase in their credit score; 50% see at least a 10-point increase, and 20% see at least a 50-point increase after 180 days.* 3. Consolidate Your Debt With a Better Loan So now you’ve appealed to the better angels of your creditor’s nature, and you’ve gone over your credit report with a fine-tooth comb and a magnifying glass in search of errors you can dispute. Now what? Your next step is to take your high-interest debt and consolidate it into a single loan with a lower interest rate. One payment per month is way easier to keep track of than three or four, right? That means fewer chances to be late on a payment, which means fewer opportunities for your credit score to take a hit. And best of all: The lower interest rate means you’ll be spending less money on your debt in the long run. Through Upgrade, you can borrow between $1,000 and $50,000, at interest rates of 7.99% to 35.89%, depending on your credit history. What if you’ve been turned down for a loan? Wouldn’t it be helpful to have access to advice on how to improve your credit to be approved next time? And wouldn’t it be nice to have free credit monitoring thrown into the deal? Those are some of the benefits of going with Upgrade, an online lending platform.  Upgrade will throw in free credit monitoring, alerts and educational features. If your loan application through Upgrade is denied, these credit tools will still guide you to improve your credit to help you get approved in the future. Now you’ve got three tactics you can use to get your credit score right where you want it. Good luck — you’ve got this!

A Peek Into Our Week (+ Sprouts & Kroger Shopping Trips)

A Peek Into Our Week (+ Sprouts & Kroger Shopping Trips)
Want to see what we bought for this week’s $70 grocery budget? I’m currently challenging myself to stick with a $70 budget for our family of five. This includes almost all of our breakfasts, lunches, snacks, and dinners + most household products (toiletries, laundry soap, etc.). For live updates, be sure to follow my Instagram Stories. See all posts on my $70 Grocery Budget here. Well, it was another week of travel and adventures — so I didn’t track what we ate in order to share in a post. But I did make it to Kroger twice and Sprouts once and got some great deals. I thought it would be fun to share a little peek into our week + what I bought at the grocery store. For Father’s Day, Jesse wanted to try out this new brunch restaurant in town. It was delicious and we had fun celebrating this man we love so much! We also ran by Kroger and Sprouts to pick up some deals. Sprouts was having their weekend deals and I didn’t want to miss them. Sprouts Shopping Trip Sweet corn — 6 for $1 (weekend deal) 3 dozen cage free eggs — $1.88 per dozen (weekend deal) 1 Coconut Bliss “ice cream” — used free coupon (I got the Peanut Butter Chocolate and it is good!) — I forgot to take this out of the freezer to put in the photo! Total with tax: $7.49 I also wanted to get to grab a few of the Kroger Buy 5, Get $5 off deals on Sunday since I knew I was going to be out of town for the next few days. I especially wanted to get 5 boxes of the $0.99 Quaker Granola bars. Kroger Shopping Trip #1 5 boxes of Quaker Granola Bars — $0.99 each when you buy 5 participating items 2 bags Jef Puffed Marshmallows — marked down to $0.69 each (I’m going to stick these in the freezer for rice krispy treats.) 3 packages of Hillshire Sausage — $1.88 each with weekend deal Private Selection Barbecue Sauce — used free coupon (no longer available) 1 bag Kroger Pot Roast — marked down to $5.49 5 bags of produce — marked down to $0.99 per bag 2 packages of ground turkey — marked down to $2.69 each Izzio Multigrain Bread — marked down to $1.29 Spinach — marked down to $1.79 5 packages of Goldfish — $0.99 each when you buy 5 participating items Kroger Private Selection ice cream (not pictured — I forgot to take it out of the freezer for the picture!) — used free coupon (no longer available) Milk — $2.69 Kroger oatmeal — $1.59, used $0.40/1 coupon Kroger mailed to me = $1.09 Total with tax: $42.12 I left on Monday morning to fly to Dallas for my mom to have surgery. My Time in Kansas I rode back to Wichita, KS with my parents on Monday evening after my mom’s surgery and I stayed with them through Wednesday evening. I got to hang out with my mom and help take care of her during the day while my dad went to work. In addition to getting to spend lots of time talking with her, I helped a little with my brother’s eBay business (my Mom and sister are running the business for him while he’s away serving as a counselor at the Wild’s camp in NC), and make yummy food for my mom and me (she’s the one who first inspired me to love salads so much!) Kaitlynn’s Birthday I flew back to TN on Wednesday night — just in time to celebrate Kaitlynn’s birthday on Thursday! Can you believe she is 12? I wrote a letter to her here that shares some of my thoughts on her life and the joy and spark she brings to us. I always take each child out on a birthday date of their choosing. Kaitlynn chose to go to a place that makes rolled ice cream and Bubble Milk Tea. It was my first time to have both of them and we had such a fun outing together! Our Trip to Iceland As many of you know, it’s our family goal to visit all 7 continents and 50 states by the time Kathrynne turns 18. We had planned to visit Europe this summer but prices to places like London and Rome are crazy during June and July. However, I found some cheap tickets to Iceland and jumped on them! So we packed up on Friday morning to head to Iceland… but not before hitting the Friday-Saturday Kroger deals (I couldn’t pass up $0.99 cheese!) Kroger Shopping Trip #2 4 bags of Kettle chips, 1 bag of Snyder’s pretzel’s — $0.99 each with Friday-Saturday deals 5 packages of Kroger cheese — $0.99 each with Friday-Saturday deals 5 bottles of Pace salsa — $0.99 each with Friday-Saturday deals 1 package bacon — $2.99 with Friday-Saturday deals Total with tax: $18.96 Grocery Totals: $68.75 Cashback Earned: 375 points back from Fetch, $0.06 from CoinOut, Want to follow along with our Iceland trip and get tips for how we are doing it on a budget?
