All Wrapped Up — Dec. 15

Our Freaking Budget Weekly Wrap-Up

We’re now two full weeks into this little blogging experiment of ours — and we’re still alive to tell about it! Like any good drug, we’re pretty hooked. How can you not be when you write a post about diapers and get eight “blowout” comment references and tons of awesome suggestions for us naive parents-to-be?

So thank you for reading, following, sharing, and caring. You’re number one.

    Just thought I would drop in to say Hi and happy 2 weeks. Blogging certainly was not what I know it today when I started. I’ve learned so much now it’s almost a full-time gig but lots of good fun and filled with learning. Cheers mate! Mr.CBB

      We have no idea what we’re doing, but we just know we’re having a good time building (and breaking) something together. Thanks for the well wishes, Mr. & Mrs. CBB!

    Blogging is like a baby, you celebrate every week, then 3-6-12 months, then the years… good luck with both, happy 2 weeks and minus 3 weeks! Thanks for the mention

      That’s a nice way of looking at one’s blog. Hopefully we don’t let our baby “crash” as much as I’ve done with our blog. 😉
