Must have’s for bringing baby home…

When I was pregnant with Michael, I thought we needed SO much stuff! We had a TON of clothes that he never ended up wearing. I’d say we had over 100 outfits that were size newborn & over half of them were re-sold with the tags still attached! We received the high chair, swing, clothes, etc at our baby shower. Those were nice. The swing ended up being a life saver! All 3 of my kids have really liked their swings. Both boys have used a high chair really wonderfully, but Rosalie will NOT sit in one at all!

7 Free (inexpensive) things to do in Colorado

This photo was taken at the top of Independence Pass, on top of one of the mountains!

If you follow my fan page on Facebook, you know that we recently vacationed in Colorado, though our trip was cut short a little bit. 

We went out there with $700 to spend, including on things such as fuel in the car AND motels AND food & still had an absolutely wonderful time! My opinion has always been that you don’t have to have a TON of money with you! Everything that we did, you didn’t have to pay to do!
