I am not coupon crazy...just a little excited about it. I decided to give the coupon game a try after speaking with a few family members and friends. I am not one of those ladies that has to buy stuff just because I have a coupon. I have decided it doesn't hurt to take a few minutes and find the good deals of the things I do use.

This week, I stocked up on about 15 boxes of cereal that I didn't pay any more than $1.48 per box plus I ended up with 3 gallons of free milk. Today I bought 2 boxes of tampons for a whopping $.28 cents each. CRAZY!

I am all about saving a buck or two! However, you won't find me buying stuff I don't normally buy.....unless is practically free!

Family Scrap Weekend

Once a year, the females in our family go on a scrap weekend getaway. This year, Mom and Phoebe were in Cancun so they were not in attendance. We had Aunt Judy, cousin Corina, adopted sisters Rosy and Kristie, sisters-in-law Jenn, Julina, and Wendy. We had sooo much fun....so much in fact that we are added another night next year! Thanks to Corina for setting up our photo shots and teaching us some Zumba while we took a break! I did a whoppin' 104 pages! My most ever!

Kristie's Birthday

March 20th ranks up there in year of importance for me with Christmas! It is my dear Kristie's birthday!! Kristie and I have now known eachother almost 7 years and it feels like forever! I am so fortunate to have moved in across the street from her on Van Dyke Court. Cheesy movie line but nonetheless true....she completes me!

For her birthday, Kristie wanted to sit down with some friends and just hang out for an evening. We had her favorite meal which is chicken alfredo and a bunch of other yummy things. It was an enjoyable and relaxing evening of friends and laughter! I am so blessed to be surrounded by such amazing women.
