Owen is officially one month old today!
We're made it a full month so we'll celebrating by getting his picture taken and taking extra naps.

To make your Friday special take a few moments to check out the following great post by other sites out there this week.

I love Trent's opinions on How not to Fail at Frugality at the Simple Dollar

This Ten minute challenge from Holly at Mommies with Cents will come in handy with a new baby in the house.

The cause of all my commotion

I said I'd share what has been causing all the upheaval in the OnOurWay household and here he is...

Owen Joseph

We had an "interesting" delivery and first few weeks home but it looks like everyone is on the mend. I can't wait till things can get back to their new normal. I've officially quit my job and am ready to do the whole stay at home Mom thing for a few years. I'm excited to start the whole new Journey we're about to embark on, and of course you'll be getting updates. We'll still be couponing, saving money as we can at home, but also hopefully adding a whole new green lifestyle to our way of life. As always it's going to be an interesting ride.

I usually save nearly as much as I spend, especially with one of their great promotions. So if I spend $50 I usually save close to $50.

Richelle has been contacted and her gift card is on its way.
