Pantry Challenge!

Hi Friends! I hope you had a great weekend. This weekend hubs and I decided to have a pantry challenge for the rest of the month (10 more days?) and use what we already have in our pantry (refrigerator, freezer, pantry). We will buy milk and veggies/fruits if we want to. It’s not a total “No spend” like what some people do, for us it’s more of a “low spend” pantry challenge. I just really want to make space for the coming holiday season because we know there will be lots of food leftovers and sales at the grocery store, so we will most likely need the room for that.

We do have a lot of food right now and I’m guilty of wasting left-overs, and allowing food to go bad because we didn’t prioritize them over our ‘cravings!’ That is such a waste of money, we need to stop doing that. I’ll try to find some time to take pantry pictures later this week 🙂

Some of our pantry food I want to use this week!
The avocado was starting to get bad so we ended up eating breakfast for dinner! HA

It’s been a rainy weekend here, and it’s kinda sad that some of the trees are starting to look bare! Next thing we know it’s gonna be winter!

Have a great day friends! Blessing!

Weekend Fun!

Hi friends! How was your weekend? We spent most of our time being with our little Matthew at the NICU. My In laws visited him and were able to hold him for the first time (they visited before but weren’t able to hold him). He is doing so good and getting cuter 🙂

It’s getting cold here in the PNW, and fall is finally here with what we’re seeing! Pretty fall leaves. So lucky to be living in our neighborhood, lots of pretty trees during this time of year. I’m not doing it justice with just one pic! HA

Fall is here!

I’m off cleaning the house and doing laundry today, I slacked this weekend but it’s okay because we got lots of cuddle time with Matthew!

Blessings Friends!

Mia is 3!

Hi friends! This past weekend, Mia turned 3 and we had a simple celebration at home. She wanted a Peppa Pig party theme, so I ended up getting Peppa decorations from Amazon and tried to sprinkle Peppa pig stuff all over the house. She was all giddy and that is all that matters! HA!

Thanks to our family and friends who joined us in celebrating her birthday, she had so much fun and until now she still talks about her peppa pig birthday. Especially her friends singing, “Happy Birthday Mia!” She’s so adorable. We can’t believe our feisty, funny, and sweet girl is 3! Time sure flies so fast. Thank You Jesus for blessing us with our Mia Boo!

I think Mia had a good birthday, don’t you?:)

Ocean Shore!

Hi Friends! Happy 1st of October! Our September has been a blur with Matthew’s birth and him still in the NICU. He’s doing good (all in all! Praise the Lord :). This past weekend we did our annual visit to Westport and Ocean Shores, WA (it’s a 2.5 hour drive from Seattle). Lots of family time and yummy seafood. It’s so fun to see Mia enjoying the ocean and having a great time. She sure enjoyed her s’mores and fire on the beach. Can’t wait to be back next year with our little Matthew! Here’s some of the pics we took:)

Later Friends!
