For one of my Christmas gifts DH booked a room at a Bed and Breakfast for NYE.
He is such a sweetheart!
Will be a great way to start 2009!!
Just the 2 of use for the day!!
He is on vacation this week so it is a little get away for the 2 of us.
We try and have a little us time every 3 months or so but have not been away since July so this in much needed.
This time together really does our marriage good.
My January food budget is going to be $60.

Just need to sit down and do a menu and follow through with it.
Would like to try some new recipes also in January.
Will be putting my menu on here so I am more accountable for it.
Most of the $60 will be for produce and dairy.

So today I printed a check ledger
