November Checks!

83. Do 20 art projects with Caleb. (9/20)
Caleb & I made a "Christmas Star" for the top of our tree. I cut a star out of foam, he painted it with glue & sprinkled glitter on top. It was super messy! He was REALLY excited about this project & I love seeing his mark on our tree!

11. Watch 5 movies that have won “Best Picture” Academy Awards (2/5)
Over Thanksgiving weekend, we watched "Driving Miss Daisy". Its one of my Dad's favorite movies & somehow I have never seen it. I really enjoyed it. I expected more of a playful drama, but it was a very moving film.

16. Read 50 books (29/50)
I just finished reading "Cinderella Ate My Daughter". I'm not sure what motivated me to read this book, I don't often read non-fiction. It was a very easy read, and a fascinating subject. Obviously this book is targeted towards parents of girls, but I took away a lot of information about how marketing affects our children.

39. Don’t spend any money at BRU
I'm calling this completed for October! I spend quite a few of our dollars at Babies R Us. Its easy to spend money there...I'm always there! I tend to pick up something on clearance, or a new toy or something random for Caleb. (or a soda for myself!) In October I didn't buy a single thing! Go me!

18. Try 25 new recipes(23/25)
I made a Nutella cream pie for Thanksgiving! It was yummy! I don't think I've ever made a cream pie before, and it was rather easy. I'll be making this again for Glen.

Tonight I tried my hand at fried chicken! I used Pioneer Woman's recipe. It came out satisfactory, but I'll definitely be trying this again to perfect my technique.
