A Penny a Penny Saved!

Hubby and I just finished Dave Ramsey's Financial Peace University (learn more here) and we have been really proactive previously in the last two years in saving every nickel and dime that we are able to.   When I was a SAHM with the boys before I got started in teaching at our church daycare and preschool, I LOVED looking for the best deals on everything and anything.  I loved doubling coupons, finding great prices on the things we NEEDED, and learning how to get more for less.  I felt like I had conquered the retail monster and learned how to shop with out dropping!

Here are my favorite places to find deals, steals, and the greatest prices around!

I'm always on the couponing bandwagon, but since I went back to work full time, I haven't been as gung-ho as I was earlier.  I'm back at it and hoping to score some fabulous finds and of course, I'm always willing to share them with you!


Oooo-- my friend Aimee has a great site to share...  Check it out, I'm on my way!

The Flowers are Blooming...

Tulips. Daffodils. Hyacinths. Baby Number 3.

It's hard to believe it, but our Baby Number 3 will be arriving in just 4 months.  He sure is blooming, kicking, and dancing in my belly all day long.  :)  I'm loving the movement and this is definitely my most favorite part of being pregnant.

I'm not a big fan of being pregnant in the summer.  I'm a very active person.  I enjoy exercise, rollerblading,biking, hiking, and other fun family activities that prove difficult when growing and carrying a bundle of joy.  I am in love with this babe and I absolutely am relishing in his growing spirit and learning more about him as we move into the middle weeks of this pregnancy.  Pregnancy is definitely a gift. 

Blooming is a way to think of this journey.  What a gift it is to bloom with such a miracle and such a gift in the end. 

Mid Winter Hiatus is's SPRING!

Alright so I took a few...alright, many months off from blogging.  I'll try to be better about it and get to posting some fun things.  The GREAT news is that shortly after my Christmas post we're having another baby!  Most of you know this...but some of you don't.   Different than the other two pregnancies, I was really sick with this little one, which led to the demise of my newest attempt at a less stressful, less time consuming blog than the one in the past.  :) 
So away we go with some new posts and new crafts...and everything else bloggy.
