I love a good deal!

Check out my new fun shoes...
$8.48 on clearance at Target!

I made a Kroger run today & also found some great deals.
When you buy 10 participating items you get $5 off your total purchase.
I ended up buying 20 participating items to get $10 off...
On top of that, I had coupons for some stuff, so for instance...

Hunts canned diced tomatoes were $.49 if you bought them as part of the participating item sale.
I LOVE Hunts canned tomatoes. I use them a LOT!
I had 2 coupons for them...$.45 off of 3 & $1 off of 4.
With Kroger doubling the $.45 coupon, I got 7 cans of Hunts tomatoes for $1.53!!!
Can't beat that...

Queen Fest 2010

(At last I return from my blog hiatus!)
Mom, Cheri, Sissy, Jennifer & I enjoyed the long weekend at Hilton Head, S.C.
For many years my mom, Sissy, and Peppes had a tradition of going for a girls weekend.
This year, Sissy & mom invited all of us "other girls" to come along.
We missed having Abbey along but she was with us in spirit!

We had a great time eating out, shopping (lots & lots!), indulging in chocolate fondue, laughing, playing games, and recalling memories of Peppes.

Here are a couple of pictures from our "Queen Fest"...

don't forget...

Don't forget that you can recycle the front of your Christmas cards by sending them to:

St. Jude's Ranch for Children
Recycled Card Program
100 St. Jude's Street
Boulder City, NV 89005

They allow the children to reconstruct them into new cards for various ocassions...what a good idea!

*the newest John Grisham & Dan Brown books
*adorable shirts and sweaters with ruffles & fun embelishments
*polka dot rain boots
*a beautiful cake plate
*The Pioneer Woman cookbook (love all the pictures!)
*a memory foam pillow (it's awesome!)
*a super adorable personalized picnic basket
*a mini-felt owl handmade by Lyndsey (I'm using as a keychain :-))
*a subscription to Food Network magazine
*ski gloves and ear muffs for my upcoming 1st ski vacation!!!
*a ski jacket
*AND...last, but definitely not least...
a pair of diamond solitaire earrings from my sweet husband
(he's such a dear)

We got back Thursday afternoon and I went back to work Friday, Saturday, and Sunday so I have yet to upload any Christmas photos but plan to do so soon.

Now, it's back to "reality" again...
