Great shopping trip!! 5/01/09

I went to Family Dollar with my coupons in tow. I was happy with the end results. I bought 3 things of egg coloring 90% off, 3 tooth brushes, a floss, 2 boxes of 30 ct bandaids, 2 boxes of 12 ct electrasol, 2 bottles of palmolive, one Gain detergent, and 1 purex detergent. My total came to $25.33 before q and after my coupons $11.70!!! Even the cashier was impressed. She kept looking at the receipt as it was printing like she had made a mistake somewhere. I love coupons!

Country Bob's All Purpose Sauce Review

I received an email from Al Malekovic asking me to reveiw the Country Bob's all purpose sauce, and of course I agreed. I really like this sauce. The frst night we had it as a side sauce with our porkchops. Both my husband and I agree that we like it better than A1.
It has an extra kick in it that makes it so good.
The second night we used it with our steak. The third night we baked it on our chicken. I plan to try their baked bean recipe next, but need to make it to the store for the rest of ingrediants.
All in all I found this to be a very good sauce that you can use for a variety of uses with your meals. I would recommend you try it. Check out
for some great recipes to try.

Groundhog day

Phil predicts another 6 weeks of winter. With the way our weather has been here I could have came up to that conclusion myself. I hate winte! I'm ready for the sun to start shining and warmth to fill the air. My kids haven't been out to play in a long time and they've been bouncing off the walls in here. I'm hoping with Phils 80% accuracy that this year he's gotten it wrong and spring is soon to come.

Birthday girl

My little chickadee will be turning 6 in just two days. Seems like yesterday that she was just entering pre-school and now here we are three years later. She is so eager to be like her older cousin(7 1/2) who is reading very well and has lost 3 teeth already. Chickadee is competative and wants so badly to keep up with or beat her peers.
She's so hard to shop for. She really doesn't need anything, but wants everything. Like she didn't get enough toys at christmas time. lol Her grandma sent her $5 and she couldn't wait to run to wal-mart and buy a set of lip glosses she had saw the day before. She's my girlie girl and loves to be dressed up with jewelry ,make- up etc.
She's taking Steelers themed cupcakes to school to share with her class. Since she's the birthday girl, she'll get to wear a birthday hat and gets to be the line leader for the day, a very special treat.
