What happened this week? We finally got a lot of rain (and I think the fact that I’m happy about it means that I have become a real adult) and the temperatures are still cruising along in the 100’s. I am celebrating Father’s Day today with my family since the restaurant industry doesn’t sleep and my dad slaved away on the actual Father’s Day holiday. Otherwise, it was pretty low key.. I’m still going strong with WW and hoping to be down at least another 2 lbs this week.

An idea about what to do with extra money. You know those times when you unexpectedly get a refund on something or receive that class action settlement check you filed for 3 years ago? I, for one, feel like this type of money is earmarked for fun ventures and things I would normally not allow myself to buy. This concept finds a happy medium between that ‘gift’ mentality (and feeling like I need to gift myself something) and doing something useful with it.

I’m following this creating a blog that makes money in under a year experiment
WINE WATER. It’s what it sounds like, water that takes like wine but is not alcoholic. The price is fairly off-putting but I’m still intrigued by the idea.
Did you see anything great this week? If so, let me know! I hope you had a lovely week!
