April 7th Spending

Total spent...$10 on toiletries.

Yesterday felt like winter here...seriously! We had flurries last night, as in little snow April! Not cool. Hubby and I went to the gym after work and I had a great workout. I'm very proud to say that I was able to run 2 miles in 18 minutes! It's not much, but for me it's huge. I had a friend ask if I could do a 5k with her in May/June, so I need to kick my butt in gear, and those 2 miles proved to me that I will be able to do it if I keep training. I also lifted arms, and I'm hoping by the end of May when I have to wear my strapless bridesmaid dress that they will look great. :-)

I also was able to accomplish one of my goals this month. I had to run to the bank for work, and while I was there I decided that I might as well make a personal deposit also. I didn't have any deposit slips with me, so I gave the teller my bank card to look up my account. When she gave my card back, she asked if I used it a lot. I think she knew the answer since my card is sooo beat up. She gave me some information on a savings program they offer. I've heard of it before, but never gave it much thought. It's like like having an online change jar. Every time you swipe your card, $1 get moved into the savings account, and it even includes online bill pay. You can also set it up to transfer up to $100/month into the account. Since I was looking for an account to move the extra $13/week, this account is perfect. And get's at 5% interest! Schweet!

I can't believe that it's Wednesday already! Halfway through the week, yay!!! It also means that it's Lost night!

So glad I came across your blog....Will be back soon.

Hope you will stop by my blog. I am a new blogger. This is my second month in the world of BLOG. I am great give away this month. This drawing will be the last day of April.
Every comment you leave throughout the month will enter your name in the drawing. This NEW blogger was so touched by all the comments I got on the Blog Party Give Away,(over 300) that I decided to make this a monthly GIFT...
Also, if you mention blog telling about the monthly giveaway, you will have your name entered 10 extra times...Just be sure and let me know that you did. How is that for an incentive?
I was so blown away by all the responses that I wanted to email each person personally... I did love reading all of them..I am continuing to introduce my family members. In May, there will be some fun blogs coming from Disney World with the grandkids. I hope to blog every night, in case you like a good trip report. And there will also be a great Disney giveaway.
I am so thankful for all my new friends.

It's an East Coast bank, but it got bought out by Wells Fargo, so I'm not sure if it's going to change.
