Wordless Wednesday All Tuckered Out

A friend of mine snapped this picture. My girls were wore out one Sunday night and fell asleep on each other in church. I thought it was too cute but didn't have my camera.

Packing up for our first Family Vacation!

Well my suitcase doesn't quite look like the one above. I sure do feel like that though! I am so excited as we are heading off on our first family vacation ever! We are actually going out west to the Navajo reservation for a camp meeting. But while we are out their we are going to do some site seeing as well! 

So, as you can see I feel so scattered brained in trying to pack for 9 of us. We have a 2 day long journey before we get to our destination. We head out early Thursday and won't be back till the following Saturday! So, we are going to drive 12 hours and stop for the night and then drive the last 12. That is both ways. So, it's going to be a long tiresome trip with little ones in tow. I am praying they won't be too cranky. 

Along with all the luggage we have to pack food as well for the trip out their. I am trying my hardest not to forget a thing.  But you all should know how that goes! I have been sewing like crazy as well to make sure all my girls and I have enough coulettes for this trip as well. 

So, I am excited as we haven't been able to have a family vacation before so this is a first! I think it will be fun especially for older ones. I will be sure to take tons of pictures and will post some when I get back. Not sure if I will have internet access or not. 

But when I get back I got some giveaways in store. 

Happy Memorial Day!

I just want to wish everyone a Happy Memorial Day! Hope every one stays safe! As for me I will be sewing and getting ready for our big trip!

Fun and Creative Ideas for Lunch!

With school winding down I am always looking for fun and creative recipes for lunch. It always make the kids happy and lunch fun!

So, instead of that boring old sandwich how about trying Crisscross Ham and Cheese Sandwich instead? This is a simple yet fun and creative why to change up a boring old sandwich. My kids love it! It is so much more fun then grilling one on a skillet. 

You could always create Three Cheese Chili Pup Cups! These are so delicious and easy to make. They make for a simple lunch or snack! Or you can always make these as appetizers for a gathering. 

If your kids love pizza like mine you could try Barbeque Chicken Tortilla Pizza. These are very simple to make. I love recipes with simple ingredients. 

What are some of your fun and creative recipes that your kids love?

Fresh Produce Clothing Review!

I have recently found fresh produce. Not the fresh produce you find in your grocery store either. I am talking about clothes. Fresh produce carries casual clothing, summer tops, spring dresses for women and many more. 

I love the fact that their clothes are made in the USA. I try my hardest to buy products that are made in the USA. But you all probably know how hard it is now these days to find that. I had the hardest time just picking one item that I really wanted. They have so many beautiful dresses and skirts that I wanted.

I decided on getting the Augustine Convertible Dress in Laguna.
I really love this dress. I add a cardigan to mine as I am not big on showing off my bare shoulders or top. I also love wearing it as a skirt as it is so comfortable. It's the perfect addition to my spring wardrobe. I just love the bright spring colors! Plus, blue is my favorite color. 

I just love the fact that it can be worn as a dress or a skirt. So, if I don't feel in a dress mood I can wear it as a skirt. I have been seeing a lot more skirts that have this option. Another reason I chose this dress is because as a nursing mom not many dresses that are nursing accessible. But dresses like these or with spaghetti straps are the easiest to use. If you are a nursing mom you understand. 

I love the fact that if you wear it as a skirt the waist band is so soft and comfortable. I have had a couple skirts where the waist band pokes you. That is not fun. I am all about being comfortable.

The Complete Idiot's Guide to Couponing Review and Giveaway!

As most of you probably figured out I am a couponer. I actually got started couponing when my husband called me and told me that I needed to watch the Extreme Coupon Show. He heard some people at his work talk about how much they saved. I watched it and was like wow! I didn't like most of the things some of them did but I was impressed with the savings. So, I started on my journey to couponing!

I want to clarify that I don't support the Extreme Coupon Show at all. Those people are hmmmm Crazy! And seriously buying stuff you don't need? I understand donating but I don't support shelf clearing! You aren't a shelf clearer if their is only 2 of said item you where plan on getting. 

I recently got this book The Complete Idiot's Guide to Couponing. In this book it shows readers how to maximize savings by couponing more strategically. The book includes:

  • Different types of coupons and how to use each most effectively
  • Stacking coupons to maximize savings
  • Earning money back from shopping trips
  • Saving money while shopping online
  • Couponing for special diets, including shopping for organics and allergen-free items
  • Organizing coupons--and organizing the stockpile of purchases
  • Finding the deals
  • Sharing couponing bounty with others
In this awesome book Author Rachel Singer Gordon (Lombard, III) also addresses some common questions and complaints on why most people don't coupon like "Couponing takes too much time." She also writes a popular couponing blog 

I learned some new things I didn't know myself and about some awesome apps that you can use to save money before you even shop! This is a very good book for every couponer out there or newbies looking to get in. 

Now on to the giveaway one lucky reader will win their very own copy of The Complete Idiot's Guide to Couponing. Open to US residents only!

*This product was provided to me free of charge for purpose of this review. This is my honest opinion of this product and no monetary compensation was received for my opinion*

I should of gotten $2.90 back. I should be happy but the hours I spent for this trip really make me upset. This is the 3rd problem I have had with our new Publix that just opened. This is why I will continue to drive 20 minutes to my favorite Publix and the fact that the one I drive out of my way for will take Target Coupons.

My savings and clearance finds!

I was at Rite Aid last night running in as I wanted to find some nonpermant hair color. I don't want nothing permant. Just so you know I am not changing my hair color I just have to cover up my gray. I am too young to look old. As I started getting gray at 21. Not fun but runs in the family and it just seems to be worse now. So, I was of course trying to find the best deal. I also wanted to pick up some free Oreos and some vapor baby bath for my poor sick baby.
