We had a desire to get our spending in check after the holidays — especially as we knew we were planning a big trip to Costa Rica. Both Christmas and the month of January were expensive as we had the holidays, travel and little L’s birthday. We figured February would be a good time to… Continue reading No Spend February
I got back in town Friday around lunch time and Liam had gone down for an early nap. Since Landon had to work, we made plans with friends to meet up at the pool after nap time.
