My baby girl is here!


I’m happy to announce that my daughter, Vivienne Elise, was born on December 17!

Her birth was fantastic. I developed pre-ecclampsia once again, but this time after she was born. That made recovery much more of a challenge.

I’ll be writing the complete birth story when I get a chance.

In the meantime, she was 8 lbs. 2 oz., 20″ long, and has short brown hair. We love her so much and are tremendously blessed!

Still-pregnant roundup


This blog has been really quiet lately, but surely you folks don’t mind. I know that many people are preparing for Christmas and aren’t internetting as much lately anyway. (And if you subscribe to my blog via RSS, you won’t have to pop over to see if I’ve written anything — it’ll just let you know in your feed reader.)

Anyway, I’m something like 39 and a half weeks pregnant and just hoping I’ve got a few more pregnant days left so this wintery mess can get cleaned up. We just have a little bit of snow but it’s supposed to be blowing, and the wind chills are unacceptable to me right now.

Not good for my own ride in for birth, and not good for my friend who will be watching my son, or my pregnant doula!

A roundup:

Money is worthless from Mrs Money, who sees that there really are more important things in life than money.

DIY Grocery list tearpad from MoneySavingMom. I’ve been thinking about making this sort of project for awhile since I think it would help make the planning phase of grocery shopping a lot faster!

Are ebooks cost effective? From GRS. I have lots and lots of free books on my iPod touch and computer, using the free Kindle app. Old books and limited-time offers on newer ones. Love it. And, I can read the first chapter or so of many ebooks to see if I’d want to read more at the library or by getting my own copy. But I haven’t paid for an ebook yet. And I’m not sure that I can justify the cost of an ebook reader right now, even though Kindles have come way down in price.

How to secretly spend in your marriage from Christian PF. No, not to be sneaky — but for things like getting your spouse a present or something, ya know?

Hey! I'm Kacie, wife and mother of 3. I write about my family's finance: how we save money, improve our spending, and plan for the future.

I hope I can inspire and encourage you to improve your situation. See disclosure.

I'm adopting a much slower-paced posting schedule, and treating this as a hobby blog now.
