Welcome back to 31 Days to Building a Cleaning Routine!
Monday I introduced what I’ll be blogging about this month. I also talked about how to figure out what margin time you have available to start your cleaning routine.
Tuesday I showed you my cleaning routine and walked you through how to start your own!
**Please join my weekly linky party: Take it on Tuesday!

So, Monday evening we decided to take a spontaneous trip to St. Louis all day Wednesday because my husband’s FAVORITE BAND EVER was going to be there (birthday gift from me). Then, we used our anniversary money to make this our anniversary trip for this year! And we only had 1 day to plan!
So, we were a little CRAZY. My husband worked both Tuesday and Thursday so we had 1 day in which to drive to St. Louis, enjoy it, and drive back. Since St. Louis is an almost 5 hour [...]
Hello! How are you? I hope you are doing well!! I have several things to share today – it’s kind of a random miscellaneous post.
All Things Fall
I think I’ve mentioned before than my sister Amy has a blog, The Happy Tulip. She’s even guest posted here before. Her blog mostly features recipes and DIY projects she has tried and used to improve her home (which is gorgeous, by the way).
Her latest post I LOVE, because I feel the same way – I’m so excited for fall this year! Amy shares four projects [...]
I’m in a book club, and we have the best group of ladies ever!! This last month we wanted to meet and do more than just discuss a book. We wanted to include food, fun, and a little bit of DIY!!
We started planning the food first. I was hosting this meeting and provided vegetable pasta salad. In addition we had a wonderful meal of fruit, bread, Beer cheese, hummus, and plenty of dessert!

June’s Goals list Update
In January, I shared most of my goals for 2012. Then, I broke those goals down into monthly and weekly goals. For the month of May I achieved most of my goals through the accountability of posting it here, and with the encouragement of my husband!
This month I didn’t do as well, but I did spend the first few days of it on vacation and had family in town for a week. I’m excited for July – each month and each week is a fresh start!!
Yesterday my husband and I went on a much-needed spontaneous date!! It was so much fun we didn’t spent any money (except at Costco). I just wanted to share what our “date” looked like and post other frugal date ideas!!
Costco was one of our first dates together. Matt’s dad had given him a membership card and 2 free Costco pizzas – they are HUGE and very tasty!!
For this trip to Costco we just grabbed some of the essentials – milk, cheese, olive oil, oatmeal, and ziplock bags (and snapped a picture).
I’m getting ready to start a long weekend vacation break – yay!! So, I’m not going to publish a Frugal Recipe today.
Instead, I just wanted to say a quick word about some exciting things coming up!!
Within the month of June:
- recipe tab with all of Romance on a Dime’s recipes – 7 Foods to Make and Never Buy Again (with price comparisons) – header and blog look change (I can’t wait to show you!!)
- first Romance on a Dime giveaway (let me know if you would like [...]
