Day 13 thru 15

December 13th

Splurge: Did you splurge on something this year? Did the troubled economy prompt you to hold back, or did you just give it all for something?

Yes! We have never, ever, ever owned a new vehicle. I don't think we've even owned one less than 10 years old....until this year. I would venture to guess that the biggest stress in the past few years was due to vehicles needing repairs. So, we bit the bullet and bought a fantastic and GIANT 15 passenger van. I absolutely love it and have had no regrets. And no stress.

Jobs: Did you change jobs in 2011? What did you do? Did you change careers? If you didn’t, did you do something that made you proud in your work? Do you plan to make a change in 2012?

I am first and foremost a wife and mother. That is my main job in life and I enjoy it thoroughly.

In the past year though I have added the title business owner to my life. I'm now known as 'the lady in {insert my small town name} with a whole bunch of kids who runs a curriculum shop out of her home'. It's amazing to hear the word spread and how the Lord has helped me to go from just an idea to where we are now. I'm truly a blessed gal.

December 15th
Things: Many people believe that things are not important, so whether things or something more grand, what are the three most important things in your life right now?

I feel like there should be two answers to this question. The first being the obvious, serious and true answer:

1)The Lord
2) My husband
3) My kids
The second being three things literally referring to 'stuff'

1) My stretchy yoga pants.

During every pregnancy I spend way too much time readjusting/pulling up my maternity pants because they just refuse to stay where they are supposed to. My yoga pants though? They fit perfectly, I just wish they were presentable enough to wear out of the house.

2) Coffee.

It's an addiction. One I freely admit and I'm not concerned even one bit about.

3) My kitchen aid mixer.

I use it ALL.THE.TIME. I'm not sure how I lived without it. I am dreaming/drooling over the bigger Bosch though....

I got a kitchen aid mixer off of freecycle. The lady said it was noisy and gave it to me for free! I love it. Glad to hear how you are doing.

Is the Bosch one better? I have a KitchenAid Artisan, but have been eyeing the bigger KitchenAid ones... the ones that have that lever that raises and lowers the bowl.
