Super Savings Saturday

I only ran to Walgreen's this week. I finally got my February rebates card, so I took advantage of the March freebies. I picked up the above items. That is all they had in stock for the freebies. The head & shoulders is a $4 rebate off 2 + I had the $1 coupon off conditioner if you bought the Shampoo. My daughter has a super dry scalp & needs this. I can't remember what it came too but I still have money left on my gift card :)
Above is the pic from the deals from CVS last week that I explained here.

Review coming soon ~ Supermom's Simple Guide to Healthier Eating for Beginners and Beyond

Erica from Supermom's Health & Wellness gave me the chance to review one of her two fab ebooks. I was given the choice between Supermom's Simple Guide to Healthier Eating for Beginners and Beyond and Supermom's Simple Guide to Super Salads. I choice the one on Healthier eating. My review will be up sometime in the next few days.

I also won her Supermom's No-Lice Hair and Body Spray during the most recent big bloggy giveaway. It isn't really lice season right now at our school, so I will have to post a better review during the next school year. I'm excited about this preventive spray though because my youngest daughter has very long hair (to her butt) & I am always afraid of lice. I can say though, that it smells awesome! The spray has a great peppermint scent and it has no chemicals, colorings, additives, or preservatives.

I was just looking at her website, and I guess this works as a great dog spray for fleas. Very cool & seriously it sm…

Goofy Spring Break, Easter eggs

Well today is usually the start of spring break for kids. Our school is being goofy this year. The girls have today & Monday off. Then they go back Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday. Friday is either a half day or no school, can't recall. Then they have all of the following week off. Crazy huh!

Can you believe it is Easter this weekend? I am so not ready. We are going to die eggs tomorrow. Eggs have gotten expensive. I ended up buying a 2.5 dozen of Medium eggs at Kroger. A dozen usually go so quick with each of them, I figured the extra half dozen would at least be a bit more.

We usually end up giving a bunch to my dad to make deviled eggs. This year Cam asked my dad if he was going to make those egg things. He was like, Deviled eggs? She said: Yes, Don't. She doesn't want her eggs taken, told him to use white eggs. We sat there trying to explain to her that he makes them so they don't go to waste, etc. Finally Aly just said, Cam he can have mine d…

Each other what we need to survive together alive."Paul McCartney and Stevie Wonder

IRS Economic Stimulus Check, When will it come?

Last week, I received a letter from the IRS. At first I panicked, that is a scary feeling seeing something from them, lol. Luckily though, it was about the Economic Stimulus Check.

We should be getting $1800 back, we filed joint so that is $1200 + $300 per kid (x2)

If everything goes right, we are hoping to use it towards getting me a newer car. I have been driving the car that we bought when we got married in 1997 to save money & help pay off debts. We've done so much work to it, including replacing the engine. I just don't think it has much life in it. Plus if you remember, I got in accident a few months ago. The front end is all banged up. Plus the driver window has been broken for a couple years. That is always fun. Oh & my heat barely works, and I haven't had air in YEARS! Not that I'd use it with gas being $3.299 right now

Anyhoo, the point of my post ~ I found a great chart from the IRS that explains when you will receive your check. In the le…

Ty 2.0 Virtual Hampster um guinea pig

So, the tricky little leprechaun left the girls each Ty Beanie Babies 2.0 Fluffball the guinea pig for St Patrick's day. We were really busy yesterday, so they entered them into the computer today. My 6 year old went first. We go to & enter it in. Once registered, they show the guinea pig just like it looks in real life. Then this lightning bolt comes & hits the guinea pig. Then you see it being struck by lightning in a cloud of smoke. Then you see this growling, snarling guinea pig. By this time my daughter is screaming, what is happening to furball? (that is her nickname, lol). She is practically in tears, looking totally shocked. This goes on for a bit more & then you see Fluffball turned into a virtual guinea pig. Then a stalk starts to grow because they live in a bean land. OMG it was crazy.

Then when my 10 year old went to do hers, I made sure hubby watched. At this point we are laughing. My 6 year old was still freaked out watching the same…

365 Day Journey ~ Day 77

Day 77Prompt 77
"When you try your best, but you don't succeed
When you get what you want but not what you need
When you feel so tired but you can't sleep
Stuck in reverse?

When the tears come streaming down your face
When you lose something you can't replace
When you love someone but it goes to waste
Could it be worse?

Lights will guide you home,
And ignite your bones,
And I will try to fix you,"
