1. Have you heard of Dave Ramsey’s Total Money Makeover plan? If not, it’s definitely worth looking into. My husband and I have used Dave’s “Envelope System” for nearly five years. Basically you take out all of your spending money in cash at the beginning of the month and divide it into labeled envelopes – groceries, eating out, clothes, etc. It’s a great way to have awareness of the money you are spending and keep your savings on track. Anyhoo, by the end of the month those envelopes are falling apart. But look what I found! A cute solution to the envelope system!
2. This recipe for Crock Pot Beef Carnitas is THE BEST recipe I’ve tried so far from Pinterest. My mouth is watering just thinking about it. I’ve made it twice in the last month and I would make it again in a heartbeat. Great for a dinner party too. We actually served it on New Years Eve! One tip: make fresh pico de gallo with it…I promise it will be worth all of your chopping effort. We also made some rice with cilantro and lime juice like they use at Chipotle. Yum yum. TRY IT. You won’t regret it.
2. Joyfolie shoes. I have been eyeing this line since before Penelope was born. Can’t wait til those tootsies of hers slow down on growing so I can buy her a pair that will last more than a month! My voice goes up an octave when I talk about them because I just think they’re so adorable. How amazing would these be for a photo session?
