It's Monday!

Happy Monday Y'all!

See what I did there? I added balloons like Monday is a good thing... it's all about perspective... maybe?

Anyhow, I hope you had a good weekend.  I had a good one.  My husband was sick so he laid low Saturday morning, while I had coffee and girl time with my friends across the street.  Everyone had kids.  It was snowing. There were cinnamon rolls.  It was fun.

Saturday night we stayed in while Abi tried her new stander and we had a little jam session.  Girl loves her some guitar.

(She also LOVES the stander. I think she may even love it more than her chair or her swing...) 

Somehow in the crevices of unclaimed time, I got officially addicted to the show Extreme Couponing. After 11 episodes, (sue me- they're 20 minutes a piece) I was on fire.  Paper towels and tooth paste for free??? Heck yes, I'd buy 200.  I'm not interested in buying anything we don't already eat (which at this point is basically just produce), but shampoos, detergents, and yadayadayada? Count me in.  All that to say, I may or may not have been clipping coupons at 11pm on my living room floor last night. When I found my first manufacture's coupon that matched with my local stores sale... I about had a heart attack.  It's true! You REALLY CAN get things for pennies. Unbelievable.

At 1:30 am, I was finally asleep and now it's Monday.  We got up and made two days worth of juice (juicing is kind of rocking our worlds...) I've got carrot juice in hand and coffee by my side (no way I'm giving that up).  The dishwasher isn't working.  My house is a crazy (organized?) mess, and I'm about to hop off of here and go get Monday on it's way.

How was your weekend???

I don't care how many balloons you post, Mondays thoroughly suck. AND -- I know you just started couponing, but TEACH ME YOUR WAYS. Honestly, I can't coupon for the life of me.

Good luck with the coupons! My mom is a crazy couponer, and with a huge family, it's kind of a necessity! She's tried to teach me the tricks, I'm just not getting it though :)

Happy Monday!

Abi looks so happy! Good luck with the coupon ing! I've found that coupons don't really work for me, my hats goes off to those who make them work. Have you heard of Swagbucks? That's my favorite way to get free stuff.

When I first saw Extreme Couponing, I about died. All I did was cut coupons, search for more online, and spend hours planning my trips. Then I gave up because it took too much time. And now I missi t.

Good luck!
