Sleeping Beauty

Addy has decided that she is too old to have naps anymore. She has "quiet time" for an hour in her room everyday. She fell asleep during dinner on Tuesday and she fell asleep eating a cookie today.

My New Hobbies

I have found lots of new hobbies lately that have keep me from posting on our blog.
First: Couponing
It seems like everyone is couponing these days. I love it because I get to buy things that we would never buy before or the name brand product instead of the generic. The three sites I check almost daily are fabulessly frugal, a thrifty mom, and I heart wags.
These were 68 cents at Walgreens. Yeah, it was a good day.

I got all of these groceries for $11.70 last week at Albertsons

Second: Cleaning up after Tyler

This is not a new hobby. But, I did clean out all of these water bottles from his car. He was proud of himself that none of them were Diet Coke cans.
Third: Sewing
Our little Princess refuses to wear pants. She prefers dresses. I saw this blog where she makes toddler dresses out of men's dress shirts. This is the third one I made. I wish I had taken a before picture. It was a Hawaiian shirt of Tyler's from his single days. It is not the best picture of the princess, but cooperation is always low when it comes to taking pics.

Playing in the Rain

These are old photos. We still had snow on the ground then. (It was 60 degrees here today, hurray for Spring!) The kids were playing in the puddles on our street, I could not resist taking a few pics of them.

Old Navy

I feel like I got to go back to school shopping again! I think the last time I bought so many clothes for myself in one trip was in high school. I go a $50 off a $100 purchase coupon from this site. I had to take a picture of it all because I was so excited.
I got 6 shirts, a dress, and two pairs of my favorite flip-flops for me.
A T-shirt for Tyler
5 shirts and a pair of hot pink capris for Addy
10 pairs of kids socks and a pair of pajamas for Boston

Fabulessly Frugal

I am addicted to this blog fabulessly frugal I find myself checking it daily. They show you how to combine coupons with stuff that is already on sale to get awesome deals. Last week I got $122 worth of food at Albertson's for $32 just by following their suggestions. They are also having a giveaway of software for budget planning. They include me in their free drawing if I blog about it!

Winter Carnival

Tyler's best friend from high school invited us to stay with them in McCall this past weekend. People create these huge sculptures out of snow and ice. Sorry that the pic is crooked, but I cannot figure out how to change it without going to the trouble of using Photoshop.

Alright, here is the reason I have been horrible about updating my blog. My little sister lent me her copy for Twilight over Christmas break and I have become hopelessly addicted. I am a sucker for novels. But, this one is especially bad. It was two weeks after I finished the book before I stopped dreaming about vampires. It sounds strange and childish, I know. There are only four books in the series, so someday (Tyler hopes it will be soon) I will be able to rejoin everyone else in the human world.
