I blinked and lost a week! I’ve been crazy busy here making the final switch over to a new menu website. And I’m super excited about it. The menu service is now being hosted at http://www.groceryshrinkplus.com which gives me the ability to offer discounts for subscribing for longer periods at once. You know how I love a good discount!
I’ve also been on the phone a lot interviewing programmers to make the site even more amazing. That’s all I can say about that, until everything is closer to finalization. But IF all the new stuff means prices go up on the site, those who are already subscribers won’t be affected by the increase. Hmmmm, not a bad reason to jump on board now .
Also, I’ve been busy planning Heidi’s 13th birthday party. I’m going to use the printables above to make the table super cute. The guest list was the hardest part. She could have easily invited 30 girls, but that just wouldn’t work out. We did NOT want to leave anyone out–what’s to do? Originally we were hoping for an indoor pool party, but our local pool had swim meets every weekend for 2 months and we just didn’t want to wait that long. A pool party could have had unlimited guests. We decided on a Mystery/Treasure hunt party at our home. My mom came over this morning and helped me plan all the clues. Oh My! I’m still giggling. It’s going to be a fun time with a small group of girls.
I missed cleaning week last week so plan to pick up where I left off this week. I’ve had some requests to see pictures of my kid’s bedrooms and what we are doing for organization there. I hope to do that this week too. I feel pretty inadequate in that area. I have so many plans for their spaces but am severely limited on time and money right now. But I have good news! We have a contract on our old house. Inspections are done, and all that is left is for the financing to come through on their end. It will feel very good to have that chapter in our lives closed and then we will be able to talk about what’s to be done in our new house!
So anyway, next week I’ll share some of my favorite cleaning recipes. And some of the new beauty recipes I’ve seen to help us get through dry skin season and get ready for Valentine’s Day.
