I just don't get it

I don't know if I have ever written about my short experience with cupons. It was right around the time last year when there was all of that hype about Extreme Cuponing. Although I never envisioned myself going "extreme", I thought that I would start small. I had a friend at work that would cut cupons during her lunch break so one day I asked her if I could join.

It was great. She showed me her "system" and we swaped and shared all of our cupons. She actually went as far as to go to the different stores that were having sales to get "freebies". I on the other hand do not have the patience for that. ha!

 I had all of the cupons nicely organized and I had a list of what I needed to buy and what was on sale that I could combine my cupons with. I was ready. I got to the store and started my shopping, I was about half way done when I realized that I did not bring my cupons. not one. Awesome. After three or four times of ending up in this same situation, I realized that cuponing was just not for me.

And that my friends was the beginning of the end of cuponing for me.

Happy Tuesday!

Five Question Friday & Prayers

I am so glad that today is finally Friday. I have been feeling under the weather all week and I feel like it made the week seem so long. I am looking forward to doing nothing this weekend! Here are the questions from Mama M. this week. Enjoy!

1. Did you do anything special for your kids on the last day of school? Or did you parents do anything special for you?

I don't really remember. I think that we would always end up going swimming.

2. What's your favorite summer tradition with your children?

I don't have any yet...My favorite thing to do during the Summer is to grill out and hang by the pool :)


3. What was your favorite thing to do during the summer as a kid?

My mom stayed at home with us and I loved hanging out with her. I remember that she would take us to the Zoo and Storytime at the library and I loved it!
4. How old were you when you were married? Were you a Bridezilla?

I was 23 when I got married and I was not a Bridezilla at all!


5. What is your favorite girl name? (I'm needing suggestions.)

I'll never tell!



I have a special request. Can you please keep this family in your prayers? I can't even imagine what they are going through right now.

Have a great weekend!

Random Lady

Hello there. I am feeling very random today-lucky you. Below is a list, in no particular order, of things that have been on my mind. No need to thank me ;)

  • Is anyone as obsessed with Pretty Little Liars as I am? Did you watch the season premier last night? So. Good.
  • I think Dewey may or may not have eaten one of my earrings this morning
  • I am totally out of eye makeup remover and I keep forgetting to stop and get some. Annoying.
  • I had an event last weekend for work and another one next weekend. I love my job and very thankful to have it, but sometimes I really don't want to work on the weekends.
  • I find myself missing One Tree Hill. I watch way to much tv.
  • I have not been cooking much lately and I feel guilty about it. But not guilty enough to cook.
  • I am totally addicted to Dance Moms on Lifetime. I. can't. get. enough. Please go watch it.
  • I stayed home from work sick the other day and layed on the couch and watched movies all day long. It was so nice.
That's all for now. Have a great rest of the week!
