1. I made bread this week! It's my 3rd try (and the first attempts weren't roaring successes, but I was determined to stick with it). I had my first true bread baking success. Light fluffy loaf, husband's nod of approval, cost a fraction of store-bought bread and has no dubious ingredients. Yay!
2. Made a rather mature financial decision (despite the fact my inner child was throwing a tantrum) not to buy a Christmas tree this year because we have no ornaments or lights (our first Christmas). Instead, we put our priorities straight and bought a nativity scene, I made an Advent wreath, and we'll slowly start accumulating ornaments and lights for next year (in the post-Christmas clearances). (I can't even buy this adorable dinnerware!! Ah well.)
3. I called my senators this week. I've sent form e-mails in the past, but I've never had the courage to call them. I don't know what I was afraid of -- it was so simple! Sadly our state's senators helped vote down the pro-life health care legislation, but at least I wasn't silent.
Check out others' small successes this week @ Faith and Family Live.
I'm going to try my hand at pasta making today! Say a small prayer it turns out well, please :).
