Happy Friday everyone! Every Friday from now on I plan on doing a recap post of what has been happening in my life and this blog with Catchin’ Up with Karrie. Sit with me on the porch, sip some lemonade and think about all this weeks happenings.
My goal for this new year on the blog is to connect with you all more, so I really hope you will all feel more like chatting it up with me, commenting, and sharing your ideas and inspiration. I really need some comment love people..so if you like what I have been doing let know. Or if you hate or annoyed by something I am writing I hope you will feel like you can let me know that as well. Just don’t call me ugly or fat or I WILL delete your comments.. ha ha ha ;)
This weekend I am excited to share that my family is going to be picking up 4 brand new baby chicks (yes chickens)! I am actually getting to start living my dream of homesteading even though I live in the city. Every step of the way will be an adventure and a big learning process. Having a tiny flock of backyard chickens is my first real baby step in this direction. I will show you some pictures this weekend on the Happy Money Saver Facebook page, so stay tuned. I am also going to try to take the kids out to a park if the weather is nice and do some freezer meal cooking. What are your plans this weekend?
