Life Lately | Saving & Christmas Shopping!?

I can't believe I've only managed to publish one post in all of August so far (well two if we're counting this one). Time seems to be slipping away at a speed I can't keep up with.

It's not even that I've been too busy to write. I've just been trying to deal with my own stuff lately- mental health and such, you know. But I won't get into that. I figured we'd just have a chat and catch up on life.

We're still staying at my mom's place trying to save. It's going okay. I cannot wait though until we finally have our own space again.
Lux is getting SO big and so smart. She's learning a new word everyday it seems and its so fun watching her little personality form. She'll be 15 months in two days. I'll probably do another update for her soon.

I've begun my Christmas shopping *GASP*...yes Christmas. I've always started Christmas shopping in August. It makes it so much easier and less stressful. We've set a budget of two hundred for Lux for Christmas and we've picked her up three things so far totalling forty dollars- one hundred sixty to go! Two hundred may seem like a lot for a one year old for Christmas but these days $200 doesn't really go too far considering one outfit can run you twenty bucks. It makes me really excited though. Starting the shopping I mean. I'm not ready for cold winter nights just yet but I guess I'm okay with the chilly fall days making their way around the corner.

I don't really have much else to talk about. I feel like life is on stand still until we get our savings in order and get our own place again. I will try to post more frequently but honestly, I make no promises lol

What's been going on with you?


  1. I was terrible at posting in August too - no time, no energy = story of my life! Hope things are picking up for you now! xx
    I haven't begun to think about Christmas yet - though I have my daughters birthday to deal with first so I suppose I'm off the hook for the next couple of weeks... Christmas does sneak up on you quickly though so I better not leave it too long!

    1. It certainly does sneak up on you! Only a short 3 and a half-ish months away!
