Update: this week

It's been a good week. Biggest accomplishment? Not eating out. AT ALL. It's like a record for us. Now let's see if I can make it through this weekend at work - I always face intense pressure on Sundays to eat out with the rest of the girls :) Most of the time I give in. Hopefully I can be strong this week...

We're trying really hard to not spend money - it's been a little tight recently, because of our vacation and me not feeling well right afterwards and having to leave work early a couple Sundays ago. I love my Baylor schedule, but the only part that really sucks is no paid time off, including sick time. So ... because of all that, we're trying to pinch pennies.

I've cooked some yummy meals this week, including a cobb salad, a new curry dish I tried (and I've figured out some things to try next time to make it even better!), and tonight we had my mom's standard, spaghetti :) It's her own recipe, and not much makes me happier than that.

Otherwise, I've gotten somewhat caught up with the massive amounts of scrapbooking I have to do, as well as the massive amounts of laundry that are currently littering my bedroom floor. I talked to my mom for a good while on the phone today and found out all the happenings at their house lately. I'm planning a fun week when my sister comes to visit (10 days!) And I've gotten to relax and goof off and spend some quality time with the hubby.

I think I'll take that. And I just realized - I have an extra day of work on Tuesday :) Which means more money in the bank ... and that's definitely a good thing!


  1. The Baylor schedule sounds SO nice! There are many many times where I have to work 4-5, 12 hour shifts in a row and when that happens its like you don't even have a weekend anyways. :P

  2. Not eating out is a HUGE accomplishment. I'm going to try to be like you and not to do that next week. :) Wish me luck!

  3. congrats on not eating out at all!!

    and good luck saving money! you can totally do it! and cooking at home is loads of fun!!
