I'm already mentally avoiding being over budget this month - I completely forgot to place my Amish farm order for the end of the month! Which means I will be keeping my fingers crossed that Von's has the Happy Eggs (the closest thing to my farm fresh eggs that's available in the local store). I really should be under budget this month, since we have been traveling or going to parties for half the freaking month so far. Unfortunately, that means we're over budget in almost every other aspect. Le sigh.
