~ i ordered some photos from walgreen's ~

~ i only took 15 pictures all week. crazy! ~

{pedometer challenge}
i actually ended up with three days without counts this week. monday, i was sick in bed most of the day so i just didn't bother. one day, the battery fell out again so the data was lost. then one day the reading was all screwed up. so, anyway...for one of the "lost" days, i'm going to use a previously unused day (which was that week's lowest).
total step count = 35,507
highest step count = 10,501 (whooohooo)
lowest step count = 3,373 (oh, not good at all...but the pedometer wasn't working in the morning)
average step count = 7,101
{savings tracker}
spent $175; saved $101 (37%)
annual savings = $288 (38%)

{coleman's birthday}
~ friday i made a big mistake and discovered a few awesome party idea websites. as if i didn't have enough, i now have a million more ideas!! ~

~ coleman and i went to hobby lobby. we bought a few things but did more "window shopping" so that we'd know what they have when we have a better idea of what we need. ribbon spools were 50% off so i went ahead and got some of that. also got a few small cool things...don't want to ruin any surprises. oh, i was happy to get the envelopes for the invites without having to order them online. ~

~ i did some test printing and my printer was not printing any of the shades of green any differently (they were drastically different on the screen). so when i ordered some pictures from walgreen's, i added a couple of test prints to the order. i did three and the greens look identical (though significantly lighter than my home printer, but still don't match the party supplies). so, basically i'm a bit aggravated/frustrated with this part of the planning. ~
