{recap} Wardrobe Update - May

  Friday, May 31, 2019 at 7:30 AM   |    Post a Comment     Tagged:,,,,, 

I was pretty good this month and only bought 1 new thing. Finally bit the bullet and bought that floral camisole dress I mentioned a couple months ago for $7, it didn't arrive yet so hopefully it fits! I've been watching it since last August, so I figure it was a good buy since I couldn't stop thinking about it, ha ha.  I also used advertising money for it so that's good too, it wasn't "real" money. ;)

I did also buy 2 Disney shirts for myself and Christian but I'm not counting those since it's Disney-only or PJ wear. Hercules is one of my favorite Disney movies and they had a Megara and Hercules shirt set for $10 each! They didn't have our exact sizes so mine is a little bit and Christian's is a tiny bit tight, but who cares.

In fun house news, we've been living here for a little over a year now (a year and nice days) and are finally getting around to things we've been wanting to do. We've started our vegetable and herb garden and got natural gas installed on Tuesday! We actually had planned on waiting a couple more years before doing the natural gas conversion but we were forced into early action thanks to an oil tank leak. But we got a super low interest loan (only paying $500 in interest if we pay over the full 10 years) and now we don't have to worry about oil anymore! YAY! Not sure what's next for the house, but we'll start saving up for whatever we want to improve on in the coming years.

  1. You're doing so well with your no shop challenge, although it's easier to stick to it when house expenses come up and eat up your budget, haha!

    I bought a Disney tee the other month for our Disney trip and I'm not sure I'll wear it again, but hubby has been getting a lot of wear from his, as have the boys! I couldn't get the right size for me so it's too big so that limits how much I'll want to wear it!

    Hope that you had a good week and have a wonderful weekend ahead of you :)

  2. How amazing that you are starting a herb garden. I've tried over the years on our weekend home but since we are only there on weekends usually the squirrels, ants or iguanas eat everything..
    These posts of what you buy are usually very eye opening for me as you are SO GOOD. You are disciplined and this will pay off in all aspects :)
