So, I'm challenging myself to acquire nothing new this month. I'm not talking about no spending-- there will still be lunches out, groceries to pay for, and gas for the car. However, I'm going to try to bring no new "things" into the house. I told my friend, Sonya, about it yesterday, and she decided to join my challenge. Anyone out there want to join, too?
It's now August 3rd, and it's amazing how often in the last three days the idea of buying something has crossed my mind. Making dinner, I thought "We need new pots and pans." Cropping at my LSS yesterday I was drooling over new stickers and patterned paper. Walking past the kids consignment store, I saw a cute dress for Lily. It's not that I would have bought all-- or any-- of those things if I wasn't doing the challenge, but it did cross my mind. Interesting. I will keep you up to date!
My friend, Heather, took some beautiful family photos for us on Saturday. The weather was just perfect, and the girls were cute as can be. Here are a few, but you can see more on her blog
The same morning, I took photos of Heather and her husband, Oliver. Heather is due with their first baby in 12 days! I'll share some of those later today-- so check back! I'll also be posting a layout or two from my crop yesterday, too.
We're off to the splashpad! Have a good one.
