Freeze It

So I have this awesome hairspray. It's like $3.64 a can or something and lasts me for a long time. It's called "Freeze It" and I get it at Walmart. Anyway, it really keeps your hair in place, but more often than not, when I wake up in the hair is CRAZY...sticking in every different direction. So, to help your day start with a good smile, this morning I took a picture of it!

For you:

I know, I look so hot don't I? ;)

Smokin Hot Deal!

I got three packages of Huggies Diapers at Rite Aid tonight. One package "Snug and Dry" and two packages "Little Movers". All three are Jumbo size packages and I paid $11 out of my pocket and will get a $5 rebate...therefore paying $6!! I had about 6 coupons that were combined together, and one extra coupon that I do not believe I was supposed to be allowed to use however the lady checking me out had no clue...yay me!
Whoo Hoo!

Grocery Smarts!

Okay, so there are a ton of people wanting info on the class I hosted last night. The class was taught by Alison Andersen from Grocery Smarts. I have been doing the Grocery Guru for about 3 months or so when I took her class and was sold because it is better, easier and saves you more.

The basic principals are using the Grocery Smarts website, which shows you which stores have the best sales going on, in combination with using coupons on the Sale item, therefore, getting the item: on sale, with a coupon and sometimes even free because of it. This is no joke. I have gotten many things for free in the short time I have been doing this... Now seriously, this seems like no big deal...but I am talking getting a package of Electrasol Gel Caps for .25 cents a BOX. I am talking getting Kraft cheese products (shredded or block cheese) for about .75 cents a package. I have about 10 in my freezer right now, and I used to always buy generic brand, but now I get kraft for cheaper.

Alison shows you how to do this! You are not searching through coupons for hours and cutting them are not sorting through whats on sale and whats not and when, cause the website does that for you! Alison will show you how!

I have never been good with coupons. Somtimes I would cut them out with every intention of using them, and then take them to the store in my purse and completely forget about them. This system makes it EASY for you...And if I can do it, YOU can do it too!

Seriously, I was even skeptical after taking my first class...until I started putting this program to use.

Now when I say program, it's FREE. Everything about this is free. Everything. You can pay to get the paper, which is wise to do so you can get the Sunday coupons (like just getting the Sunday paper), and Alison even suggests you get multiple papers. She gets 5! There are 5 in her family, so if something is on sale, or even FREE with coupons, then she gets 5 of them! Seriously, so which ever way you go...please learn more!! AND I should mention Alison gets the biggest discount that you can get anywhere on newspapers, sooooo...another reason to contact her!

Host a class (I would totally be up for hosting another because I have had so many people interested, but thought I would let someone else take the reins and have one so they can get some bonus'!) And then after you hear what she has to say, you will be a forever Grocery Smarts shopper.

So, here is the deal:
Alison Andersen g84cac (this is Utah only, so for other states I dont know what the passcode is but Alison may be able to help you) Now checking out this website without having taken the class or talking to Alison might be somewhat confusing, but it is too much info for me to post on here, so call Alison (or me if you want) and we can wwalk you through it...or better yet, host a class and learn how!

Become friends with Alison on facebook and she will hook you up with a world of coupon options/ideas/sales!= On fb she's Coupon Gal


And I can fill you in a lot more in person or on the phone cause I am somewhat of a pro now (somewhat) but like I said, host a class, talk to Alison...

Oh Baby!

Dear Keaton,
You are growing up so fast! I cannot hardly believe you are 14 months old in 2 days! You are so sweet and wonderful...but I really need to talk to you about something... I have noticed over the past few days you have been feeling ready for only one nap. Your sweet mommy is not ready for this! Mommy can handle you taking one long nap in the middle of the day, but you are so crabby and upset from about an hour before dinner until you finally go to sleep at night, which you now fight me terribly over because you are overtired. And not to mention your Daddy and brothers have not been getting very good dinners because mommy is holding you while making them...and that's not working out very well. I love you, I accept you however you are, but Please, Please, FOR ME sleep a little longer on your naps, don't be so crabby and go to bed easier. That's all. Love you,
From Mommy

Out of the Mouths of Babes

Our FHE lesson tonight was on how Nammie (Cort's Gma) is turning 80-something today (yes, I know, lame that we can't remember, I think shes turning 82) ANYHOW, so we said that she is still so healthy and strong because she takes good care of her body. She has 13 children, about 150 grandchildren and about 150 Great Grandchildren, SERIOUSLY. And she still calls all of them on their birthdays. She is healthy and strong. So we talked about how she is so healthy and strong after all these years even being so old because she takes care of herself. She doesn't smoke or drink alcohol and she exercises.
Soooooo Brayden said the closing prayer after the lesson and said the following:

Dear Heavenly Father

Please bless the food.

Bless us that we smoke.

Bless us that we drink and take care of our bodies.

And um, Amen.

Yeah, so he really understood the lesson apparently and yeah. So great. And there you go.

My First Boutique

Soooooo...the day started off pretty good. Then I got kinda freaked that I didn't have enough wipey cases made, although I KNEW I had I decided to make a few more...and in doing so, left Brayden to play by himself, unsupervised. I was busy and then got to thinking...Brayden is so quiet. That means Trouble. And I came downstairs to this:

STINKER!! We have moved the marshmellows and other such yummy temptations far away from little hands reach, but even hidden, Brayden will find. This is the only cubbord that doesnt lock...therefore, his biggest temptation.
So the Boutique was AWESOME. There were kazillions of people and my booth was right in front, I had lots of customers, lots of great comments and compliments. It was a great experience and now that I have my feet wet, I feel like I can jump in even deeper! This was my table...

I know, I know, fabulous right? ;)

Today is Cortney and my 9 year Wedding Anniversary!

9 years ago today, we took the big pludge and married each other... We were so young (although Cortney was getting up there, 6 years older than me, 26 when we married). We had no clue...but we loved each other...

And we have made it through a very hard year on both of us individually, on both of us together, and as a family of 5...We take on this new year of marriage to be even better...each year we are together, we learn more about each other, and learn more how to annoy each other (come on, you all know you do it too!)...more how to laugh harder together, how to make life fun for our family...and how we get to spend the rest of time and all of eternity making each other happy.

Happy Anniversary Cortney, Love you, Always and Forever.
