Good Deal on Crocs

My hubby has been wanting a pair of crocs for a while now and we had been putting to off I guess kind of waiting for a good deal.  Well here it is check out these codes that a frugal friend has found.  Click Here
Thanks to this DH now has a pair of crocs on the way!!


Happy Wednesday Everyone!!!

I found a great site for finding low entry giveaways
She puts up a list of giveaways each day that have low entries I believe her cut off is 100 or less.
It really is a nice resource to finding giveaways.

I went to yard sales Saturday.  I did not find a lot but I did find what will probably be Baby Bug's Easter Dress for next year. 
I think it is darling!! And I snagged it for $2 dollars.
It is a sleeveless dress with little pink bows and flowers around the neckline then the jacket has those sweet little pleats with bows at the top and a white collar with pretty pink flowers on it.  I am in love with it!! Since the dress is sleeveless and it has the jacket it will work however the weather chooses to be on Easter.  

I have started doing some of my regular shopping at the dollar store.  I think I am saving money both in the prices and the fact that their are not so many products to tempt me into buying them as their would be at the bigger stores.  

I won another giveaway:  I won a copy of The Glassblower by Laurie Eakes.  From the Giveaway Lady
I cannot wait for it to arrive I am always looking for a good read!! 

Are you swagbucking ?  If not it is time to jump aboard one of the easiest ways to earn free stuff!! 
Just by searching something most of us already do!

I hope everyone has a great Wednesday!!

Thursdays are great!!

Happy Thursday everyone!!

I hope everyone is having a great day.
Baby bug and I have had kind of a slow moving day we woke up and lazed around the house a bit enjoyed some books and a slow start to this hot hot hot Thursday.  We did run some errands and as always everyone we met stopped to admire the cutest little girl ever!!

I spent some time in my garden, we made the mistake of not getting the wire things for the tomatoes to grow on and they are all over the place and since the are on the ground a lovely little bunny has been helping himself to my tomatoes!! So I did my best to get them tied up and off the ground.  I did pick my first piece of produce from the garden the other night it is a banana pepper isn't it pretty?  

I also took some time to pick a few of the flowers we have around the house to make a little bouquet for the table. 
I know they are not the prettiest ever but I like having the little extra cheer on the table.
I got my gift card to Eagle America from the blog-  A Concord Carpenter Comments.  This is a neat blog for all those carpenter, handy type people out there!! He shows some really neat projects.  
I cannot wait to spend this on one of the handymen in my life!

It is not to late to sign up for my giveaway with digital room.  You can win 250 Labels/ Stickers.  I cannot wait to see who wins, i wonder how they will use this labels.

Monday A start to a new week

Happy Monday Ladies and Gentleman!!

I hope everyone had a good Father's day yesterday, and had time to reflect on our Heavenly Father that loves us all so much!! 
We had a nice Father's day here.  Woke up opened father's day presents - babybug gave her daddy a life jacket and a framed picture of her that said Dad your the best.  Then it was off to church,  we came home and daddy spent some time fiddling in his garage something he loves to do.  We went to his grandma's house for dinner then it was off to see Marmaduke at the theater.  Our church has been doing family fun nights each Sunday in June they have been having events for the whole family.  Last night they booked two showings of Marmaduke at the theater it was a very enjoyable time and so much fun for us to watch.

While we were out and about my best friend stopped by on their way through town and left the sweetest gift ever for babybug it was a taggie blanket, with her name stitched in one corner.  Babybug loves it she plays with all the different ribbons and has tried all the taggies out to find which one tastes the best.  The blanket itself is made out of that Minky dot material.  I am thinking to make one of these blankies for a friend who is expecting we will have to see if mine can come out as nice as babybug's new blankie.  

Well looks like it will be mainly a cleaning day.  I have a few errands to do later on today but for the most part we are just here at home cleaning! :)

Happy Friday everyone!!! 

Today has been kind of a slow day Baby bug and I slept in then went to go pick up her pictures at JcPenny's that is really all I have accomplished so far today!!! 

Her pictures turned out very sweet.  They always send a few extras that you can buy at the time of pick up.  One page today had a 5x7 that says Dad your the best on it so we bought those and put it in a frame to add to Hubby's Father's Day present.  

I hope everyone has a great Father's Day!! We are planning dinner with his family and then the church is hosting a family movie night so we will be going to see a movie with the church fun!!

Monday errands

Today is/was a day of errands and phone calls.  I made quite a few phone calls I needed to take care of then Babybug and I hit the road.  We needed to go to the bank which is quite a bit a way since we have not switched banks since our move.  So I thought I would do a little shopping while we were out.  We went to look at babys are us such a fun store.  I bought these for making baby bugs food:
Especially for Baby Freezer Cubes 2-Pack - Especially for Baby  - Babies"R"Us
 I am really excited about trying to make some of babybug's food and I like these becouse I can make them and freeze them in these little cups then heat and serve them in the cups as well just like bottle food.  It will be very convenient on the go. 

I have a confession to admit me and the weight watchers is not going so well!  I just cannot seem to stop eating I just love food way to much!! So I keep trying one of these days I will get back on track hopefully before I get to out of control, I have rained my eating habits in a little bit but I know I have more to get under control!
I saw a neat blog post all about what was in the mailbox for the week I think I may collect my mailbox goodies for the week and share next Monday.  I don't get as much as some people but I sure do love getting things in the mail.  
Are you swagging yet?  This is a great freebie you do internet searches and earn swag bucks at random they can be exchanged for things like gift cards.  
Search & Win

Well my main goal for this afternoon is to organize my mail and pay bills, so I guess I need to get a jump start on that before babybug wakes up!

Have a blessed day!!

Saturday Morning

Good Morning all you bloggers!!
Are you having a good Saturday morning? Who has big plans for this weekend? We do not my plan is to enjoy a peaceful day about the house. I just finished some basic house work the dishes are done the table straightened and the livingroom pick up. I have been tring to do these basic each morning while baby bug takes her morning nap. I remind myself that I am maintaining my hard cleaning efforts so that things can stay nice longer.
Cleaning Tip of the day: When washing bibs go ahead and latch the velcro back together this will keep the velcro from attaching itself to all your other clothing and creating a big clothes wad in the washer or dryer.
My vegtable garden is growing nicely but I must admit it is in need of some attention I have just let everything go crazy, so I may devote some time today to weeding the garden and such.
I hope everyone has a great day!! Oh by the way those looking for a good deal check out Old Navys Tank top sale for today only tanks are only $2!! Old Navy

Thursday June 10

Happy Thursday everyone!!! Today has been kind of a lazy dazy day. I have done laundry and some basic pick up. I was going to spend some time organizing at the papers and bills but quickly discovered I need some office supplies before I tackle that.

Cleaning tip of the day: Did you know you can use Coke to clean the toilet? the acid it in takes care of rust rings and other stuck on gunk.
-I read this one in the all you magazine. This is a great magazine it has lots of little tips and always carries coupons!! It is also very reasonably priced. I often buy it off the rack at the check out line at Walmart. It runs at about $2.50 per magazine.

Baby bug is eating baby cereal - oatmeal and rice. She is just about ready to start other solids like green beans and carrots. I am thinking I may try my hand and making my own baby food. I need to do some research on it first. Has anyone else done this? What are the tricks to the trade?

I entered a giveaway for an ipad at mom to bed by 8 Check it out here. I don't usually enter such big giveaways but wouldn't it be great to win an ipad?

If anyone is having a giveaway feel free to put it in the comments and I will enter it. I am loving winning free stuff. I have not won much lately as I have not had alot of time to enter giveaways, but I did win the one I posted about in my last post to Maiden America still gotta figure out how to spend that gift card!!

I hope everyone is having a great Thursday it is time for me to start cooking dinner!!


I won

I won a $40 gift certificate to Maiden America from Saving Obsession. Yippee now I just have to figure out how I want to spend it!!

Wordy Wednesday

Today babybug is at her great grandma's house and I am going to get some big cleaning done!! I will be starting in the kitchen and working myself around the house.
Cleaning tip of the day: Clean everyday messes with vinegar it does a good job and is safe for the family. I bought a spray bottle and mix 1 part vinegar and 4 parts water to make my cleaning solution. I use this cleaner to clean counters, sinks, floors, and anything else I would use an all purpose cleaner for. Before I started using this I used to worry about the smell but I found out that as soon at the vinegar drys the smell leaves with it as well.

I did not do very well on my weight watchers yesterday. I stayed within my points but I spent allot of those points on junk rather then fruits and veggies and such. I am hoping to do better with the fruits and veggies today. Also I want to drink more water today- after this post I am headed to the kitchen to get a big glass of water to work on as I clean.

Yesterday I went out to town to take the trash to the dump and spend my coupon at JCPenny's. I hate taking the trash to the dump we have two big trash cans that I have to get loaded into the truck then at the dump I have to struggle to get them up over my head to dump the trash into the dumpster. Well there are always lots of guys in line around me as well as the men who work there most of the time they ignore my labored pitiful attempts to get the trash into the dumpster and occasionally I have even caught them laughing at me. But yesterday a hero arose from the crowd a very kind man watched my struggle with the first trash can and stopped loading his trash to come over and help me with the second. It was such an unexpected thing but oh how kind of him to see my need and come to my rescue!!!
Shopping was fun at JCPenny's I had my $10 off card in hand and was ready to seek out some good bargains. In the men's sections I found some nice st. Johns bay Polo shirts for the husband I chose to buy him a nice green one it feels so soft!! Then it was over to the children's section where I found some major good sales Babybug got a cute cute purple outfit with an elephant on it, it even came with a matching headband, and a shirt that says I love daddy, daddy loves me.

I put my blog on top mommy blogs. I was curious to see how that worked. Feel free to vote for my blog HERE.

Applebees is having a teacher event on June 15 teachers can eat very cheap! Check it out over at spendlessandsavemore Click here

Well I am off to Clean now everyone have a wonderful Wednesday!!


Happy Tuesday everyone!!
Today is a cleaning day for me!!

Cleaning tip of the day: Save your dryer sheets and reuse them to clean the shower/Tub.
They work great at picking up the soap scum and also I find they are great for quick swipes to get the hair and grime up.

After I finish my cleaning I am headed to JCPenny's, I got a coupon for $10 off a purchase of ten or more so I cann't let free money go to waste!!
I have gotten several of these in the mail from Penny's and Kohls, I get so excited to see these in my mailbox I hope they keep coming!!

I started Weight watchers again yesterday. before baby bug I had lost alot of weight on it just by eating right and exercising. Well it is time to return to the world of eating right instead of eating enough to feed a family of six and blaming it on nursing.

A great site for anyone who is also doing weight watchers is Dottie's Weight loss Zone
This is a great site that lists the point values for tons of restaurants. I used this alot last time before we would go out I would plan my meals.
Another great resource for anyone wanting to do weight watchers is Health Discovery
I visit their forum frequently it really is a great place to find support and accountability.

So my daily point target is 36 it is high becouse I am nursing and that is still my main priorirty is to be eating enough to take care of baby bug, when I wean her I will have to go down to 26 points a day.

I bought a new notebook this weekend at Walmart to write down my daily food in. It is amazing how having to write it down keeps me from pigging out!!

Well I am off to clean again I hope everyone is having a wonderful day!!
