I am feeling very inspired to be frugal and get back to meal planning today. Why, you ask? I just purchased the $5 Dinner Mom cookbook and she really has me excited to get back to where I was at with my budget last year at this time. My plan today is to do an inventory of what I have going on in my freezers and pantry and actually sit down and make up a dinner plan for the next week. Crazy I know! It's taken about 6 months for me to actually come to the realization that it really saves me money, time and a lot of frustration! I am also making envelopes for my cash today so I can get back to being on a tighter budget. I am excited to get back to my life as it should be...Check in with me soon to see where I am at with it all! If you are interested in the $5 Dinner Mom you can find her at her blog here

My sweet baby girl

Boy I just can't explain how much things are changing around's weird for me. My baby is potty training and do VERY well! She also moved to a big girl toddler bed and went to preschool for the first time this week...I am struggling with her getting so big so fast. She turns three tomorrow and I just can't believe it.
This is my baby growing up. Making her Mommy happy and sad all at the same time. She is sensitive, loving, cuddly, funny, beautiful, and silly...all of these things rolled up into one precious and sweet little girl.

Hughes happenings....

Well we have been pretty busy around here lately. #1 and #2 are both in activities that they are having so much fun with. So we are trying to juggle activities for both of's a challenge but it's also one that's going to get even more complicated as #3 gets older. Here are a few pictures of the kids.
That's our boy at his first football game. He's the one in the black shirt and really blonde hair.

Nicole was busting at the seams to get to her first gymnastics class.

Of course little sister had to get in on the action.
Her first cartwheel ever attempted. Very Exciting.
