It's that time of year again!

Alright, I have been away for too long! It never slows down around here and with the holidays FAST approaching, I don't see that happening anytime soon!

Let's see, what have we been up to? Well, Hailey turned 7 months, Sarah is still my energizer bunny, Victoria had her 8th Birthday this past week...WOW, 8 years already! A scary thought is in another 8 years, she'll be driving....YIKES!!

This is my FAVORITE time of year!! Although, I know that Thanksgiving is coming in a couple weeks, I am a Christmas nut! I look forward to decorating, watching my favorite movies and all the lights just make you warm inside!

I've been crossing off my list of gifts for the girls and will finish it in coming weeks. It does get pricy but i planned it out this year (actually planned it) and I have found some great deals and it's not as stressful. God knows we have all been told that a plan for everything makes it go smoother but we forget and tend to put this off, even the everyday little things. Until they are all looking at you and your wondering where to begin.

If it's not too late, try that this year! I got a little notebook and each page has a different person on it. Write down either what they have asked for or what you want to get for them. There's no need to get everything but it does help to keep track of what you have gotten and not go crazy (it happens so fast) and then before you know it, your budget is blown and your now even more stressed out!

Alright, I'm done.

Been a while

Well it's been a while since i've posted anything. It's been so busy and i had the stomach bug this past week, yuck! This week i discovered how to make bows for my girls! I love them, i've only made a few for Halloween but they haven't come out half bad, haha. I have always had ZERO craft ability, so this if BIG for me!! I just love the idea of being able to make them to their liking and match to their outfits :-) Here are the couple i made!

Well it's been another busy weekend but we did get quite a bit accomplished. Finally was able to do the landscaping to the front and side of the house and a little in the back. The front and side look awesome! We're so glad we did it! The back is a step by step work in progress! It needs A LOT of TLC! It's getting there though. Tomorrow I'm going to go birthday shopping for Josh (my brother) and work on the basement some. That too needs quite a bit of work but i need shelves for my holiday/storage things. It needs a good sweep/mop and vacuum too!! Kind of odd but i don't like when it gets gross down there even though it isn't finished....yet! ;-)

Alright, folding a load of cloths and switching loads over and emptying the dishwasher, then finally bed!

First Post

Well here it goes! I've been couponing for a few months now and have gotten better little by little. Now of course I don't do as well that the people on the show but we have definately save a TON of money! Right now my obsession is the Wegmans diapers! For one box, supreme or regular they have an $8 off coupon making them $4.99/box!! I think that's great! For what we pay for 1 box regulary is almost what i can get for 3 boxes right now!! I've gotten 6 boxes and will continue because i'm getting them in the 3,4,5 sizes for the girls as they grow!
I went to Home Depot today and priced lumber for Ryan to make shelves in our basement because my closet as reach capacity pretty much. Pretty proud of that! I'd day we've spend a total of $150 in all and that includes some that is in there from before i couponed!
