Money Check Up! 5.3.12

{via}

1. The most I’ve spent this last week was $75 for tickets to the Cal Roots Music Festival in Monterey.

2. Today I am thankful for The Everygirl, for giving me a chance to share my home with you.  I’ve also showed it to my real life friends who had absolutely no idea about my blog, or that I love to decorate.  Sharing it with them was honestly quite scary.  (Why is it easier with ‘strangers’?)  It still feels like a dream and I’m an in awe of the positive response.  I really never thought I (or my blog, for that matter) would get so much attention from anyone!

3. Money can’t buy happiness. One free thing I did last week that made me happy was visiting the Cherry Blossom Festival in Cupertino with Justin and Buddy.  There’s nothing like a free local event to get outside and enjoy the sunshine!

4. I will consider this week a success if I finish my planting projects.  I just bought a new fern and a pot of succulents that I need to transplant into prettier containers.

5. If I could redecorate one room, I would choose my kitchen.  Well… I wish I could remodel my kitchen.  Actually I’m in the market for a new fridge.  But due to some poor cabinet planning on the previous owner’s part.. I may have to look into some new cabinets.  Yay?  That’s going to be expensive.
