I'm back & Doing Something!

Yeah, I know... 2 weeks no blogging, wow! I think that's the most I've gone. But I come back because I couldn't pass up letting ya'll know about It's an 11 Days challenge where you do something (at least 3) with your children/family to experience what families have to go through everyday and then blog/share your experience with everyone.

Today is already Day 3 and today's challenge is:
  • Live below the line. Spend 1.50 or less today. Send in photos of what you used your money for.
  • Use Bing to find your local food pantry. Donate 5 items of food.
  • ULTRAbonus: Find out what your slavery footprint is by visiting and share your results. 
I just signed up and created a team "Mom Bloggers" but you don't have to be a blogger, just report your actions and/or challenges that you complete!

Check out that website ( it is VERY interesting!

The Challenge: Live below the line

Today as I was reading about the challenge and telling my 7 year old about todays' challenge, she was very smart and saying that if we "drive" anywhere that is spending money. And we really didn't want to make this hard, because it isn't. People just think they have to "Go" somewhere to have fun or to do something. So we decided to GARDEN! It's something that we have our whole family participate and it creates a sustainable life-style for our family. We only have herbs in our garden right now, but it is so nice outside in Texas today and the girls love to play outside. So, we probably spend about $.50 in water to water the herbs and then we just removed some weeds and raked some leaves and branches that had fallen yesterday because it was windy.


If you have completed the challenge head on over to and "Report it."
