Back to linking up with my pal Deena for her numbers posts. These are a fun way to reflect on the month that was. I always joke that January is my hibernation month...but after thinking about all this and looking back at it, I guess I didn't hibernate much at all!! See what you think...
Here's a peek at the first month of 2017 (eeekk I still can't believe it!!)
2 movies seen in a theater!
4 birthdays celebrated (5 if you count reagan! LOL)
January was full of birthdays and birthday celebrations! Mom, dad, my nephew Tim and friend Mindy all have birthdays in January. So it was a month of celebrating, eating yummy and partying!
My first neighbor night attended! Where I discovered Left Center Right....my new favorite game! I left with 0 dollars! And lost $3 and a few quarters!
Again this year I've pledged to be Shop Free for Three. Not buying any clothes, shoes, or accessories for the months of January, February and March. I did well. I took January 1st off, being a holiday and all, and treated myself to a pair of leggings from a New Year's sale at small online boutique run by a school parent. (for only 15 bucks!), and then won a pair in a contest that day too, so it really was a win-win!! And anything else I bought, I had a Christmas gift card for.
In all honesty, all the money I do spend is on food! I ate out or got take out a lot in January...and am already doing the same February....oops! Lots of Italian and tapas but only one sushi night! WHAT?!?!?! Must change that in February!!
All the food money I spent was mixed in with 11 fun nights out this month. Not bad I suppose!! I love my people...
1 formal observation completed! Didn't go as swimmingly as I had hoped but it's over and I still have a job so...
On a more exciting note....2 trips booked!! Off again to see my Mom in May for our annual Mother's Day trip and headed for a meet up with the ladies of The Blended Blog the very next weekend!!!! I've never been to Canada before so I'm so excited!! Lots to look forward to!!
Saved $5.63 so far in the Penny-a-day challenge!
