1 Year

Daniel and I have been married one year! We have experienced a lot of firsts this year: first holidays, first home, first pregnancy test (negative!), first garden.

In the past year:
  • Daniel passed all four sections of the CPA exam the first time (very rare) with high marks (even rarer!)
  • Greta graduated college
  • We both learned clutter has a mind of its own
  • Lots of dinners ruined
  • Even more good recipes created and discovered
  • Many dinner parties; even spur-of-the-moment, people-dropping-by parties
  • New church
  • New friends
  • First grown-up Bible study for each of us

Craft Ideas

I just requested a $50 dollar check from Opinion Outpost, a survey company! How it works: I get emailed a link to a survey almost every day. Sometimes several a day. If I qualify for the survey; don't answer to quickly, right demographic; then I get a certain number of points. This company is great because each point corresponds to 10 cents. (More then most places do! The next best one the points are a few cents each.) So to get $50, I just had to earn 500 points. And the average survey pays 20 points.

I have a long list of things to get with those fifty dollars!
