Gorgeous Green

February 24, 2011

Happy Morning! Happy almost-weekend! My tardiness to blogging is attributed to managing our finances. Boy do I love Excel and Mint! I could spend hours making up formulas and crafting my own “reports.” Ha. A good problem to have, methinks! Matt made the oatmeal this morning – it was fab. The Mix 1/3 cup oats, […]
