Not much time today...

We finally finished the taxes.  It took a little longer with the extra stuff for my business, but we came out okay.  Eden's Garden didn't make much $$ last year, so it ended up not making any difference as my deductions allowed me to not owe any taxes on the business.  We are getting a tax return, and it is gong straight toward debt!

I joined The Grocery Game yesterday.  I am hoping to maximize my grocery store savings.  Some friends are hosting a couponing class this Friday night.  It should be fun!

Well, I have a baby shower to sew for today, but I have to get some things done first, so, gotta go!!!

Don't Buy Stuff You Cannot Afford!

Looks like something Dave Ramsey would have put out!  So simple... why is it so hard?

Is it Spring yet?

The answer is ... NO!  

I blogged last week from the porch in bare feet and short sleeves, but we live in Richmond where, if you don't like the weather, stick around a day or two!  Sunday night we got some snow!  Well, not just *some* snow, we got 7 inches of snow!  It has been 10 years since we had a snow like this (4 years since we had any accumulation to speak of- 4 inches then, I think).  

This being the first big snow in years, it was Eden's first snow!  She loved it!  Here are some pics to tell the rest of the story!

Eden helping to clean of Daddy's truck!

My beautiful snow princess!

Eden and Daddy playing in the snow!

Eden helped Mama make snowcream!  YUM!

Eden and her snowman "Frosty."

Daddy worked hard to make "frosty."  The snow was very powdery, but he turned out great and Eden loves him!  Yay, Daddy!

Now for the good news... this coming Sunday is supposed to be 65 and Sunny!!!  Come on Spring, I'm ready!!!
