Merry Christmas!!!

I wanted to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!
Enjoy the time with your family and God bless you this Holiday season.
Remember that this time of year is not about all the presents and the hussle and bussel, it is about our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Stop, and thank God for everything you have.
I will be taking a couple of weeks off to be with my family so I will talk to you after the first of the year.

Merry Christmas!

Fun at Bass Pro Shop and Bricktown!

Last night we went over to Bass Pro Shop after The Big Show at the Brick Town Ball Park.(more on that in a moment) There are so many things for the kids! They have a whole area set up with games, crafts, and Santa! This is the place to go to see Santa! There was NO line and they give you a free picture. I wish I had a picture to post of my girls with Santa but I could not get them to go talk to him. The 12 yr old said she was too old, and the 7 yr old was kind of scared. Santa tried his best to get Devyn to come over but she just would not do it. So I told the girls when they get old and have children of their own and ask why I don't have any pictures of them with Santa, I was going to remind them of this moment. (They did not buy the guilt trip either) :(

Hope all of you get to go check it out and hope your children cooperate and give you a picture of them with Santa! Go HERE to find out all the details and times.

The Big Show is a fun volunteer appreciation even that our church does for the volunteers. This year each campus did their own and the Edmond campus rented the Bricktown Ball Park for all of us to go sledding down the man made snow slide. It was a blast!! We had so much fun! We drank hot chocolate, ate cinnamon rolls and pretzels and did some tubin'. The 7 yr old, that would not go talk to Santa, went down the big slide twice! She said she was not going down the kiddy slide when she was tall enough to go down the big one. I will post some pictures when I get them downloaded from my camera.
If you get a chance to go sledding, go. It will not disappoint you!

Have a great weekend everyone!

I'm back!

Hello friends. I missed you guys. It has been a while since I posted last and I apologize for that. We were away for Thanksgiving and then I was down with my back all weekend. I am feeling better now and have been decorating for Christmas at home and at the office. I am hoping to finish up this week. I am usually finished by now but was a little slow due to my back. I have no idea what I did but I am just glad it is better.

I hope all of you had a great Thanksgiving and snagged some great deals on Black Friday. I did not get out. I am not brave enough.

I may be sporadic in posting the next few weeks before Christmas. This is my busy time for sewing and embroidery so I will try my best to keep you guys updated on great bargains. Please don't hesitate to email me if you find something you would like to share.

Thanks for reading!!

National Weather Festival Part 2

We had so much fun at the National Weather Festival on Saturday. We saw lots of cool storm chaser cars, radars, and equipment, and watched as they launched a weather balloon. The girls had a great time doing the kids activities, especially the frozen cheese balls. This guy dipped them in a cup of dry ice and then was passing them out to the kids. My oldest daughter tried one and said it was strange, as smoke was coming out of her nose. It was really cool. (no pun intended!)
I also got to catch up with a good friend of mine from high school, Steve Carano, who is a meteorologist on Channel 5. The girls got pictures and autographs from all the meteorologist from Channel 5 and Devyn was even on the news! While she was getting Rick Mitchell's autograph a camera man was filming and they showed it on the 10 o'clock news. If you saw it, she was the girl in brads.

I will post some pictures tomorrow.

It Has Been a Great 3 Days

I can't tell you how much I have enjoyed the last 3 days. Wednesday started our big staff event called the Family Reunion. Once a year we bring in everyone from all 14 campuses and we visit, eat, and worship together. We heard from Andy Stanley, Dino Rizzo, and of course our pastor, Craig Groeschel. I am truly blessed to work for! We have the best leadership and the best worship pastors in the country!

On Thursday, we have quickshops we can go to. My friend Christi, from Christi's 2 Cents and I taught a coupon quickshop(which I will be sharing with you in the next couple of weeks). We had a blast teaching everyone what we know about couponing. We taught 2 sessions and I was amazing by how many people showed up. We were full both sessions and we gave away lots of prizes including coupon organizers, coupons, and a whole grocery cart full of stuff we have gotten free over the last few weeks. We stuffed 4 bags to the point of over flowing!! It was so much fun! I wish I would have thought to take some pictures to show you guys.

Although a little exhausted, I am inspired to be a better example of Christ and to know him more!! I hope all that I do here on this blog shows you the love of Christ and I hope to be a blessing to you because I am truly blessed!

Thanks for reading!!
It is the beginning of a new month, time to go through your coupons and pull expired ones.

My New Shoes

I wanted to share my great deal! Look at my cute shoes! I got them for $9.90!! (no tax, no shipping) A friend at work twittered last week about some new shoes she got. I thought they were so cute I immediately ordered my self a pair. I got them today and LOVE them!! I immediately opened them and put them on like I did when I was little in the shoe store. They are so cute and way comfortable! The best part is they are make out of natural materials and recycled items. Mine or made out of hemp and the soles are made from recycled tires. I can't tell you how much I love them. I am thinking about ordering some more in the other colors and they also have flip-flops that I am going to order.

I wanted to tell you guys about my amazing deal at Homeland. I am so excited.
We are having lots of family over this weekend for Labor Day. Travis decided to smoke a pork shoulder and make pulled pork sandwiches. I made my list, gathered all my coupons and off I went. Because of the coupons I had, I knew if all went well, I should get a really good deal.
Here is how it all went down.

4 lb pork shoulder(I wanted a bigger one but this was the last one) $8.40
used $6 off The Other White Meat when you buy 13.5 lb Kingford charcoal and one of the following products. (Don't remember what they all were) KC masterpiece barbeque sauce was one of them. = $2.40 (Wait, there's more, keep reading)

$1.00/2 Kraft sliced cheese (coupon doubles)= $1.18 or $.59/each

A-1 Steak sauce 2/$5.00
used $2 off A-1 steak sauce= $.50

used $2 off Fresh Meat when you buy any 3 Kraft items (Kraft sliced cheese and A-1 steak sauce where on the coupon.)

Remember the pork shoulder I got for $2.40? They took the $2 off Fresh Meat coupon off my pork shoulder so now, the pork only cost me $.40!!!! Wow!! I can't believe I just got a 4 lb pork shoulder for $.40!

I also got FREE chinet plates after coupons

What I did this weekend!!

I have been wanting to glaze my cabinets for a while and finally did it.

They started out as oak cabinets and looked like this.

A friend from work did her cabinets and they look amazing so I asked her to come show me how to do them. She met me at Home Depot Friday night and showed me what to get and then came over Saturday and showed me how to do it. Thanks Erica!! It was so easy!! I love the way they turned out. Even my 7 year old told me they looked like we bought them! I took that as a great compliment. She is in the picture helping to put the knobs back on.

It was not that hard, and only cost $39! It took just a little time and I have a brand new kitchen.

Tell me what you think!

Why I will never put my coupon binder on the floor!!!

I HATE SPIDERS!!!!!!!!! Always have, always will!
Here is the scenario:
I was sitting at my desk, minding my own business. I had a coupon that I was going to put away so I picked up my binder off the floor (yes, I bring my binder to work everyday!) and when I was unzipping it, an ENORMOUS spider crawled onto the top of it. I jumped from my chair and started screaming! (Did I tell you I HATE spiders?) A couple of guys were coming down the hall and came to my rescue.(Thanks John and Aaron) One of them took my binder outside and let him loose. (I wish he would have smashed it!!) I thought I was going to come out of my skin. I have never seen a spider so big! I wish I had the guts to go find him and take a picture so you guys could see how big he is, but I just don't!! My wonderful husband (who works here with me), came out of his office a few minutes later and asked what all the commotion was about. He knows all to well about my love for those 8-legged creatures. I don't mind small ones but ones the size of a golf ball, that is another story!

I am calling the bug guy to come spray!!!! YUK!!! My skin is still crawling!!

Homeland Deals

Back to school!

Well, the girls started school today. I can't believe summer is over. It flew by!

There were mixed emotions at our house this morning. Ryan, who is normally reluctant for new things, was ready to start 6th grade and go see all her friends. She had her clothes all picked out last night and was ready to go. Daddy took Ryan to school this morning. (Her bus gets to the house at 7am so she can sleep in if Daddy takes her). He said they had a good talk about getting lost at school and what she should do if that happens. She was not nervous at all so I know her first day of middle school will be great. I can not believe I have a child in middle school! She has grown up all too fast.

Devyn was excited but kept saying she did not want to start school. She wants a few more weeks of summer. (Me too Dev) She is good to go with the flow, so I know her day will be filled with excitement and fun. She is a big time 2nd grader and looked so cute in her new clothes. She is missing her 2 front teeth and looks so grown up. She has changed a lot since last year. What a difference a year makes.

It is raining today so I had to take pictures in the house. Hopefully I can get some good ones this afternoon when the girls get home.
I love you girls!! Hope you have a great day and wonderful year.(Wipe tear from eye)

Unadvertised Deal at CVS and milk!

I was at CVS on Saturday and found an unadvertised deal. They have CVS 10 ct tampons for $1.89 and you get $1.89 ECB's back. Limit 1 per Extra Care Card but what a great find. Also, the milk in on sale for $2.69 and you get $1 ECB. It said limit 1 but when I got my receipt, they gave me $1 ECB for both gallons of milk. I also had two .75 off 1 gallon coupons and paid with ECB's so I felt like I struck gold!! I printed the milk coupon from the Borden web site.

New Babies and Birthday Party!

I have been quite busy the last couple of days. We have had several friends have babies this week and my oldest daughter's 12th birthday party was Friday night.

Here are a few burp clothes I made for baby Dax. He is so cute and cuddly!!
Congratulations Wes and Lyndi!

I am also proud of the cake I made for Ryan's party. She came up with the design all herself. I was worried about making the pineapple look somewhat real. I am very pleased how it turned out. Thought I would show you guys.

Now we are waiting for my parents, sister and niece and nephew to make it here for a cook out and another party. It will be great to see them and spend the afternoon together.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend and I will get you guys some deal up tomorrow. In the mean time, go cut your coupons and look through those sale papers!!
