Blake's Family

I love these photos! Am so glad Blake is happy with Jessica.  Of course that little man Logan has my heart as well!  I need to get with Jessica and have her make me about 6 pictures from this shoot so I can put up on wall!
I can remember when Blake was that young.  Seems just like yesterday..

I went to Homeland grocery store and got all this for only $34.31! It would have been $85.71 for a savings of $51.40 or a savings at 62%.  I am loving coupons!  This was my 2nd trip for the day.  When I went home I seen what I still needed and had to go back to get Kraft items, and Oreos and case of coke and some crackers and cereal. 
Have been to three local coupon classes and learn something new every time. I would love to learn how to save even more money each strip.

Last night Mildred and Tammie and I went couponing!  We hadn't been in several weeks  so it was time to go get some supplies.
Our first stop was at Family Dollar.  We had the coupon $5 off of $25.  Which means total had to be $25 after coupons.  I spent $24.73 and saved $20.52 using coupons.  Then we went to Walgreens and my total was $81.29 and I actual only spent $37.69.  Which really was a awesome deal.  I had a coupon where I had to spend $30.00 before coupons and got 5000 points (which is like $5.00)!  Last on out trip was Homeland grocery. I just needed a few items. I was out of pocket $25.38 would have been $53.43.  Over all I was happy with my savings.

Couponing is really a good thing.  Yes it takes time and some research but a 50% savings or more is great!  If you have any questions please ask!!

Pen Pals 2015

 I love my pen pals!  This year is going to be a great year for me and my pals!  I have about 10 letters wrote that I will be sending out first thing in the morning! I am always looking for a new pal!  Do you want to write me? If so leave comment for me! 

I love this image I found on the internet of beautiful mail art. I enjoy decorating my envelopes for m pals!
This year I may weed out some of my pals so I can become a better pen pal to my faithful pals that I have been writing for years.  I have several pen pals who only write 3 or 4 sentences and I don't really know who they are or what they like to do.  I need a letter that I can reply back to and answer questions.

Blake's family

I love this photo of Blake. Jessica and Logan! I have a good photo that shows their 
Just love how they are looking down at my sweet little Logan.
 This boy makes my heart so happy! He reminds me so much of my boys when they were 3 years old. 

I feel so blessed that Jessica and Logan are in my life! She makes Blake a better man.  I do think he is good for her as well.  Am looking forward to a New Year with lots of adventures with Logan and his mom and Blake!

Brr its cold!

Cold weather has officially arrived here in Oklahoma! As I write this I am bundled up on the couch with a hot cup of mojo! I am working on a few pen pal letters.  I am going to TRY to write a letter to each of my pen pals during January.  I thought that would give me a starting place of how many actual pen pals I do have.  My plans are to be on top of my letters and answer in a timely manner.  I would have to lose pen pals over me taking way too much time in getting them a reply!
Anyways I don't have much to write about but wanted to send out a huge hello to ALL of my followers! Am looking forward to being a better blogger this year.  I so would love to be funny and education but that isn't who I am.  Which means I am going to stick with entry's about my life and recipes and swaps and pen pal letters.  Because that is who I am and what I enjoy doing. 

Have a blessed and wonderful day!!

Happy New Year 2015

I can't believe it is already 2015!! May this year bring you joy and peace and lots of love!  I did not make any New Year Resolutions.  I figured I need to keep on working on the ones I set for my self every year.  Such as be healthy, get organized and of course be a better pen pal.

Am looking forward to all the new adventures this year will be bringing my way!  I have several things and road trips I want to do! Wish me luck on fulfilling my list that I have in my head.   Now if only I can get it down on paper then in my planner. 

Have a wonderful New Year everyone!!
