Cover Girl Deal of the Day

Its deals like this that make me so happy I have a well stocked coupon binder. Today I found Cover Girl face powder on clearance at Food Lion (they also had the foundation but I only use the powder) for just $2! I looked in my binder and I had some great coupons because I normally purchase 3-4 Sunday papers.

This is how I saved today....

Original Price $5.96 each x 6 = $35.76

Clearance Price $2 each x 6 = $12.00

Coupons - 2 - BOGO Free Coupons (which means now I am only paying for 4 - now we are down to $8)

2 - $2.50 off 2 Coupons ($5.00 off)

Total out of pocket for all 6 = $3.00

A Savings of $32.76!!
Go here to see my coupon binder and I bet you'll start saving big too! I would love to hear about your savings this week or if you find any great deals.

The butter was another BOGO free sale matched with a coupon made both for just $1.19 and
the Blistex was on a BOGO free sale matched with two $.35 cent coupons made
it just $.29 cents for both.
We eat veggies at each evening meal and I love to make vegetable soup so getting them on sale is great! This week FL has Libby's on sale for just $.39 cents. They were running low so I purchased 12 green beans and received a rain check for another 12 which I'll get next week.
Remember, rain checks don't expire so get them!
Another good deal this week in Chuck Roast for just $1.88lb.
I purchased these roast for $5 each which will provide 4 meals for my family.

Fun Day for All

This week I am planning a trip to the mall to look for some much needed shoes for myself and pants for our youngest. I never venture into the mall unless I am pulled by my hair kicking and screaming. Well, not really that bad but I really only go a few times a year if that. Since I have some coupons I am going to go and see what I can find. I thought I would make it a fun day for Mark and the boys too. I have several coupons for FREE stuff that I've been getting for an upcoming birthday so as a surprise to them we are going to take advantage of several of them. I've been surprised at all the goodies I've been sent so we are going to have fun at the mall this week. Go here for a free goodie from Orange Julius. Join the OJ Quench Club and receive a coupon good for a free 20 oz Orange Julius or Premium Fruit Smothie and they will send you another on free on your birthday! You can use it to plan a fun date too! Check back for other links to sign up for free goodies for your birthday.

Sea Creatures with Grandpa

Being a Mom of two amazing boys leads way to many adventures. I don't get to decorate anything in pink (except for Valentines Day) and cute girly hair bows have never been made in my home but ask me anything about skateboarding and I can pretty much keep up with you or ask me the best place to purchase paintball supplies and I can tell you where to get the best value in town! This past week while sitting at the doctor's office with Dad he mentioned he wanted to do something fun with the boys at home so we decided to have a special lunch and movie....on the menu,
Sea Creatures!!
Dad had so much fun making these with the boys! Cut a hot dog into three chunks and put raw spaghetti noodles through them.....

boil until noodles are done....

wallah....a jelly fish.....or.....

maybe an octopus!!!

add two boys

a Grandpa and your set for a fun lunch building some fun memories!!!

The Missing Sock

Do you ever see this on the floor? I am ashamed to say I see this all the time and I usually call the culprit to pick them up. For some reason I saw just one sock on the living room floor. I was doing laundry and it struck me that the missing sock was not with his mate, when I reached down to pick it up I noticed there was something stuck to it...
When I tried to pull it off it would not come.
Upon further investigation I noticed....
this was no mistake!

The boys hot glued eyes to a sock and made a sock puppet! They couldn't
use an old sock, they had to use a new one because it "looked better!"
Today while doing the laundry I heard what I thought was a pack of tic tacks in a pair of pants. When I pulled it out, it was the eyes on this puppet rattling!
I just love my job.

Valentine's Day At Our House

Often I feel so blessed to be on this amazing journey as a wife and mother. Its not always an easy journey but its one that I feel honored to be a member. Valentine's Day in our home is not only another day to express how much we love one another but its also a day for us to teach the boys the importance of making their love feel special. We do it all year but on this day we make a special point to make each other feel important and loved in a special way. I know one day I will not be their Valentine but for now I cherish the moments of being their one and only and enjoy teaching them to cherish the one they will one day love. For us, Valentine's Day is not about the gift as much as it is about doing things for one another to express just how much we love one another. Mark has adopted this as his holiday and he always has a little something special for us when we wake up. This year he gave me something I never buy myself, Dark Chocolate Lindt Lindor Truffles. Oh, my, LOVE those!!! The boys each made me homemade card. Don't you just love homemade cards? I know I sure do.
When I was a little girl about 8 my Grandma passed away and while visiting my Grandpa he gave me these little ceramic angles and I just love them. He had tears in his eyes when he gave them to me and said; "Your Grandma always loved these." Having them on my table reminds me of the love that has been in our family for generations.
Our youngest loves brownies so a holiday is not complete without these little jewels. Just bake in a mini muffin pan, top with a dollop of frosting and add a Valentine heart and you're set with a cute dessert.

Strawberry cake with strawberry frosting is always a hit but having it on Valentine's day just adds to the flow of PINK! Its the only time of year I get to decorate in PINK and I love it!!!

I love a good thrift store find and finding two of these little bowls just made my day. They were .25 cents each and were perfect holder for PINK candy and the other one had PINK cookies. Oh, did I mention I LOVE PINK?

This parfait glass were another find this past week at the thrift shop. I found 17 of these for just $2.99!! I have plans for them in a few weeks at our ladies fellowship but today they were filled with salt and topped with a tea light candle to add shine to our Valentine table.
I love going out with my friends for Girls Night Out. This past month I found these cute heart noodles which I fell in love with. For just $3 I was excited to add more PINK to my table!
Add some Italian Dressing, Cucumbers, Cherry Tomatoes, Olives and you have a yummy pasta salad which went well with our pizza. What a nice evening we had together as a family. The boys kept saying Thank You Mom & Dad for a great day. Its not always about the big things we do for our family its about the memories we build and the things we teach along the way. Hope you had a wonderful Valentine's Day too!

Snow Day 2010

They say we've not had this kind of snow fall in 20 years!
Its the first snow fall our youngest has ever seen and boy what a day it was!!!
Our poor southern palm tree just collapsed under the weight of the snow

The first layer of their official snowman! Grandpa came out at 10 PM and showed them how to roll the snow into a ball! The boys were amazed at how it stuck and they made....

an official southern snowman!
Its funny how even in the snow their personalities show forth. Our oldest made the snowman complete with hair and our youngest is holding a snowball ready to hammer Mommy.......
which he did!

the house

we even had hot yummy cinnamon rolls....
and a pot of delicious chili

everyone needs a day like this every once in a while and we took full advantage of it!

Back Again

Sometimes life gets so busy and the past few weeks have been that way for us. I've been working out of town, Dad had several doctor appointments, two heart wrenching funerals and then the daily joy of being a wife, mother, daughter and teacher added to the mix. I appreciate all the emails asking where I have been in blog land and I am happy to be back. I have so much to catch up on. Looking forward to visiting with you again.
