Wyatt's first time Bowling

This was Wyatt's first time bowling and he did pretty good even if he had to use the bumpers. He tried it many ways and the one that seemed to work best for him was a running start. As soon as he got the ball he started running to the lane, he just seemed to throw it harder that way.

Summer Plans

Don't these little guys make you think about a warm hot summer. They do me and I was looking through all my summer posts from last year and we just didn't do enough. We did a few outdoor movie nights at Candy's, went to Point no point a few times, and did go camping once.
It has been really nice out so far this year and the warm weather has gotten me thinking about what I want to do this summer. There is just so much more I want to do this year. So this year I am making a list.
-Going to the drive in
-Really want to go to Point Defiance Zoo at least twice
-Camping trips (at least once if not twice)
-Outdoor movie nights at Candy's house
-Point no Point beach several times again
-Lots of BBQ with friends
-A hiking trip would be fun
-Excursions/ Day trips with are friends

Where I go...

So people always ask where I get my coupons so I thought I would try to put all the places up here so you can all see. Now I do not check these everyday. I have several that I have signed up for and are sent to my email when there are new ones out.

Hip 2 Save - this is my favorite and I check it several times a day to see all the deals she posts. She doesn't just post coupons. She also post free samples she has found and other online deals.

I heart Wags -I love her site to see Walgreen deals.

Hot Coupon World -this site is great because they have an awesome search engine and you can type anything in and see if there is a coupon for it out there on the net. You can always go to the forums and join in chats about the grocery store you shop at to see what the best deals in that weeks flyer are.

Coupons.com -they have awesome coupons on this site

Betty Crocker

Red Plum -great grocery and various other coupons

Eat better America -this has a $10 coupon book to sign up for when you sign in

Kraft first taste - This site is nice because it sends you coupons for free new items that are coming out.

Another great idea is to just search in your search engine what you are looking for, such as Oscar Meyer coupons.

I know there are others that I can't think of right now, but like I said I just get them in my email and print what I like or need then.

You can always just check out my sidebar of this blog under the 'Savings' and I have several other blogs I look at every once in awhile to see what they have posted, but most of the time Hip 2 Save has also posted about them, so it is just easier to check out her blog.

A little change...

This what it looked like before, but I used the yellow tall tin to hold my utensils (in pics below) and the yellow bowl is new from my sister, Jenefer, for my Bday. This is it now doesn't look to bad, but I will see how I like it after looking at it for a week or so.

These were my utensils before. I was using the pampered chef rounder, but wanted something that fit the style of the kitchen better.So I switched it two these two tins. I am not sure how easy it will be this way so I will keep it a week and see if it works. I just had the pampered chef thing so organized that I could grab things with my eyes closed. LOL

I hate how unused this counter is, seems like such wasted space. It is in such a odd spot it is hard to make use of except for the dish drainer which is always out and the utensils that I use with the stove.

I have the makings for several meals already in the house so I will be making those this week just to keep cost down.

So I will be getting some of the prizes for the carnival party.

-Sunday is dinner with the gang

-Red Robin one night with my Bday free burger coupon

-Black eyed Peas casserole

-Brushetta Bake, salad

-Carne Asadas, Mexican rice

-BBQ pulled pork sandwiches

-Saturday the boys will be on their own, I will be scrapbooking all day for my Birthday.
