Blogging Has Helped OUR Economy

Since I started spending time in the 'blogosphere' my husband has noticed a change in our checking account. The change is that there is a little more "change" in it.

Before I began writing my little stories, this was a typical family morning routine: wake-up to the alarm, make coffee, get my girls up, make breakfast, get everyone dressed, drive to school THEN go browse at Target, or Kohl's, or Michael's. You get the picture. There would always be a little something that caught my eye, or something that would look adorable on my girls. Nothing absolutely necessary, it was pure frivolity.

Well, now my browsing is done on the computer, meeting fellow bloggers and following their morning routines, or train of thought, or lovely creations. I've found that my shopping now consist's of the grocery store and Etsy. I know this doesn't help the nations economy however, it's great for our family's economy! And that's where my focus needs to be right now.

Have you noticed a change in your spending habits since you started blogging?

Miss Poodle Perm, That's Me!

Jill of Scary Mommy is doing a linky post about school pictures. You know the ones, possibly you didn't smile a sweet smile, just the smirk of panic. Or you didn't know it was picture day because you had been out sick for a week and you show up in your most comfortable shirt and bed-head. (Yep. That happened to me. The smile was good though!) Well, my scanner isn't working or else I would post a particular picture from Freshman year. Since I don't have a visual, here's the story: I remember my first day of High School. Actually what I remember is the picture taken of me leaving for my first day of High School. I'm wearing a brave smile, but the hair, the hair , my hair style was a nightmare. My two best friends and I were going to be attending a High School out of our district. That was stressful enough. To add to this new-ness we wanted new looks as well.
