100th POST!!! Castle and Carriage Mural

Castle and Carriage Mural for little Miss Hallie Kate who was born yesterday about the time I was finishing up her painting! Congratulations Steven and Stephanie, and thank you so much for allowing me to be a tiny part of such a special occasion. The proud parents have a crown to go over the top of the mural...when they get settled in I will post a pic of that as well.
The ornament is a gift for the new little princess....enjoy!

For those of you who do not know....I LOVE COUPONING!!! I became addicted several months back, no interventions please. I recently started taking pics of my savings and have been posting them on Facebook. If you are not couponing, you might want to ask yourself~why not after seeing these next pics. Yes, it does take time but is well worth the effort. Well, see for yourself why I say it is worth it....

The 2 pictures below are from my first Kroger visit this week. $275.25 worth of groceries for $113 and I received $4 towards my next purchase! My biggest fan is cheesin in the background!lol

I also went back to Kroger a couple more times this week because the girls are in VBS and I had the opportunity to rack up some more savings. This is $90 worth for $35

and here is $121.60 worth for $59!!!!

Happy 1st Birthday Weston!!!

Happy 1st Birthday Weston!!! Weston celebrated with a three tiered chocolate, french vanilla, and strawberry white chocolate with buttercream frosting cake. The festive cake is topped with fondant and candy clay and gumballs were added to make the border. I cannot wait to see what Weston does to that top layer...that is his very own "smash" layer. Thanks Calisha!!!!!
