Did I accoplish my 4 F's for the day?
FAITH: I spent time in the morning looking for an online devotional website and found one that I really like. I took time with the devotion and time with God.
FAMILY: We spent quality time at the beach yesterday (the two younger kids and myself) and I spent time with the older two watching a movie at the end of the day. I introduced them to one of my favorite movies of the 80's :).
FINANCES: Yesterday was a no spend day. We went out and about and didn't eat out or stop for coffee (one of my weaknesses). We were good stewards of our money.
FRIENDS: We spent time making cards for friends to help brighten their day and thank you cards for Christmas.
I also spent some time on a "use it up" project. I had a shirt I LOVED the color of but it had a grease stain on the front making it unwearable in public. I took that shirt and made it into a scarf! I used the pattern found here: T-Shirt Scarf Tutorial and I love the way it turned out. Here is a picture of my beautiful daughter modeling it :)
I also tried a couple of new recipes for dinner that were a huge hit!
Roasted Garlic Chicken
The potatoes I cooked in the oven and the chicken I omited the lemon because I didn't have any. I had roasting a turkey on the menu BUT I ended up cooking one last week and well, the kids didn't want turkey again. So I improvised with what we had on hand.
It was a good first day and a great way to start off the New Year!!
