Father’s Day Child Artwork Photo Collage

Father's Day Child Artwork Photo Collage

Father’s Day is coming up! I love that there’s a day set aside every year to celebrate the incredibly important relationship fathers have with their children. And every year we try to make my husband a little something special (because handmade gifts mean so much more, in my opinion) to show him how much we love and appreciate him.

Little Bear Creating His Works of Art

This year I came up with the idea of making a photo collage of Little Bear’s artwork that my husband could take to work. He is always sitting down to color and create with Little Bear and he just loves seeing his artwork, so I thought it’d be a fun gift to give him. And just in case you’re wondering, he absolutely loved it (he got his present early this year)!

This really is a fun, easy, and inexpensive gift to create. Check out the tutorial below!

Things I Love: June 2015 Edition

I’m always thinking to myself, “Man, I should share this thing that I love on my blog!” – hence, the Things I Love monthly series (that I’m reviving)! These are some of my current favorite things. By the way, none of the things mentioned below are sponsored (no one paid me to mention them). This is just a list I’ve come up with on my own.

So let’s get to it! Here’s what I’m into this month.

First 100 Words Book

Little Bear isn’t much of a talker yet (he’ll be two in September). I wouldn’t say we’re concerned about that. We’re just keeping an eye on him and encouraging him to tell us what he needs, he’s mostly given up his pacifiers (he still likes them at naptime and at bedtime), we’re reading him lots of books, etc.

Our 2015 Financial Plan: March/April Update

Our 2015 Financial Plan: March/April Update

It’s time for an update on how we’re doing with our 2015 financial plan. In case you missed it, here’s where I laid out all of our financial goals for the year. So let’s talk about how we did in March and April!

Debt Payoff

  • Pay off two credit cards that we have small balances on – We’ve paid off one of these credit cards so far. It looks like the other one will be paid off by mid-June. Hooray!
  • Pay off my student loans – No change here yet (other than paying the minimum each month).
  • Pay off half of a credit card that we have a large balance on – No change here yet (other than paying the minimum each month).

Savings

  • Save one month of income for our emergency fund – This is one of the priorities after we pay off the second credit card above in June.
  • Save a down payment to buy a house – No change here yet.
  • Fund our medical savings account for the year – This is the other priority after we pay off the second credit card above in June.
  • Do the 52-Week Money Savings Challenge and stick that money in our emergency fund – We’ve kept up with this every month this year so far.
