Catchin’ Up With Karrie: Easter Baskets on Dollar Store Budget, Albertsons Round Up + Chickens!


Happy weekend everyone! Every weekend 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.



We brought home our baby chicks this week and they are the cutest things ever! Chirping and peeping so much all I want to do is watch what they do all day long.


I also shared with you my reasons for why I wanted to raise chickens in this post: Happy Homesteading: Why I want to Raise Chickens.
