I made homemade pizza tonight using the recipe Carla posted earlier in the thread and it was delicious! I know I will definitely make that again. Also, it got me to thinking. I used to make homemade pizza all the time when DH and I were just married and couldn't afford to just pick up the phone and order pizza. Why did I quit doing that? I hate that I got into the habit of spending more just because we're making more. Does anyone else ever feel that way? Has that ever happened to anyone else--your spending increasing when your income does?

The swimsuits -- hmmm...jury is still out on that one. Necessary or no? My daughters definitely needed new swimsuits, but I bought retail ($15 each) at the Carter's outlet.
I would have bought at a thrift shop but sometimes I get matchy-matchy and want to dress them both up in matching clothes (plus that makes them easier to pair up at our crowded public pool) and to get two things that match in 2T and 5T you pretty much have to buy new.
So I bought four brand-spanking-new matching swimsuits. And my toddler wanted swimsuits that look like ballerina tutus instead of the plain (read cheaper) ones.
Okay...even as I type this I realize it was uneccessary spending...so guilty as charged.
I'm FIDOing it.
We're going to do a LOT of swimming this summer (since it is free and we can walk to the pool) so I'll be enjoying those matching ballerina suits many times.
