Our family is down to just over one week before we leave on our BIG RV trip. I want to live the adventure and not just be along for the ride so until July 2017 things are going to look a little different around here.
A Blog Announcement
Starting next week I will be replacing “3 Things I Am LOVING Lately” with a Monday post that will be similar in layout to 3 Things… but centered around our RV trip. I want to let you see what we have been seeing on the road.
Most weeks there won’t be a post on Wednesday’s and Friday’s are going to change too.
Friday’s on the blog while we are on the road will look like this…
1st Friday: Saving Money Tips
2nd Friday: Houskeeping/Decluttering
3rd Friday: Earning Money From Home Tips
4th Friday: Other topics (reading, time management, cooking, fitness etc)
5th Friday: Round up post (10 books I love, my top 10 posts on money saving, etc)
This revised schedule will significantly cut down my work week allowing me to spend more time soaking up the trip but still give you, my readers, your favorite topics each month. The new schedule will also allow those of you who have been telling me you want to follow along on our trip to do just that.
In July when we are all settled back into daily routine I will re-evaluate how the new schedule is doing and decide whether to go back up to 3 posts a week or keep it at 2.
First Thing I Am LOVING Lately…
A family evening at the Indy Zoo Holiday light show.
My eldest son has been volunteering at the Indy zoo for over a year now. One of his volunteer perks is a free guest ticket for so many hours of volunteering. A few months ago he came home with 4 free tickets and we decided we would save them for the holiday light show the zoo puts on every year.
The show had a very magical feel for it and if you live in the Indy area I would say you need to go and see it at least once.
Second Thing I Am LOVING Lately…
Our new Christmas Eve tradition
Last year at the start of the Christmas season I sat every one down to discuss Christmas traditions. It was painfully obvious the year before that several of our traditions from previous years had been outgrown by our children.
One thing we decide to switch up was when we opened our gifts. We switched it from Christmas morning to Christmas eve. The reason being that “morning” was becoming a flexible term with our teenagers. It seemed like the same kids that could sleep to noon if we let them magically became crack of dawn risers on Christmas morning.
So we decided that after Christmas eve church service we would come home to a finger food feast and then open up our gifts. It is a great family evening spent together and Christmas day has switched focus from gifts to reflection, relaxation, and family time.
Third Thing I Am LOVING Lately…
A new year with a new set of goals
Last week I shared a little about my 3 words for 2017 – Soak, Create, Share.
This week I wanted to share my goals. They are few in number this year since I want to soak up the trip.
I shared about them in more detail in this Facebook post.
Psst… I would love to get to know you better. Hang out with me in either my Facebook group for people desiring to declutter their homes or on my Facebook group for those who love my thrifty posts & hot deals.
