Life in Our Home || November 2019

Good morning, ladies! I hope your month has been beautiful, thus far. We are settling into a time of rest while waiting for our newest addition to arrive, and it has been wonderful.

I’m currently 39.5 weeks pregnant. I actually made it to the grocery store today with the help of my sixteen years old son. I love using the Ibotta app to save on groceries, and today I received $10 back on my regular purchases. I’m especially loving the new feature which allows me to pay for items through my phone, and receive 1% cash back on my entire Walmart bill. If you would like to sign up for Ibotta, I would totally recommend it. I’ve received over $260 cash back over the past 18 months. If you use this referral link to sign up, we will be on the same “team” and our purchases will help the other receive bonuses.

Our homeschool is winding down for our littles until 2020. We began in the middle of summer since I knew we were expecting a fall baby. I think we are all excited for the short break.

Our violin lessons end for the semester in two days as well. If baby doesn’t decide to make his appearance, I’m looking forward to the performance on Friday. My oldest son is not looking forward to wearing what he has dubbed “his wedding costume,” ha!

I’ve spent a bit of time this week putting together two separate online gift shops, one for this blog, and one for my financial Instagram page. It has been a lot of fun and my two oldest daughters who are still at home are doing the same along side of me.

We have amped up our HSA in preparation for the baby’s birth, and I’m looking forward to paying some extra on the mortgage tomorrow, Lord willing. It is almost comical how exciting the thought of being completely debt free makes me.

Oh, and my family (minus myself and our youngest ones) have been visiting a new Saturday fellowship and have really been enjoying it. Sitting upright is not my friend at the moment due to pregnancy induced sciatica. But I know this too shall pass, and I’m looking forward to attending once we are out of cold and flu season with our new little one.

November is such a lovely month, isn’t it? With Thanksgiving around the corner, I can’t help to be thankful to the Lord for all He has done.

Many blessings to you and your families, ladies!

Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

1 Thessalonians 5:18
