Tackle it Tuesday

My nesting must be kicking in. I woke up early and decided my closet was out of control and it couldn't wait. I try so hard to be organized but I am just not an organized person. This Tuesday my tackle was our master closet..........

I know that it is unnecessary for anyone to have so many shoes.

Before you gasp in horror, let me explain! These are my pre-prego and post prego pants thrown up in top of the closet.

That is just ridicules!!!!!!
I had to pull everything out and sort threw it......

And now for the finished product.........


I just really hope I can keep it this way.

The Answer is Revealed....

I know you are all just going crazy with suspense. Last week we went for my 18 week doctors visit and THE SONOGRAM! Not only was I super excited to find out the sex of the baby but I just wanted to see anything that resembled a little human life. So without dragging out your anticipation for to long I will start by sharing my little Peanuts precious feet......

Is that not the cutest thing you have ever seen! OK! OK!., I will continue. Now for the money shot........

For those of you who are scratching your head, let me explain. You are looking at two cherries and a stem. That's right another precious baby boy :)

CVS I'm Back!!! Well Sort of....

2 hours before my $24 in Extra Care bucks expired I decided to run into CVS not let them go to waste. Exactly 30 days ago my hubby went to CVS to pick up my prenatal vitamins and walked out of there with $24 in ECBs. He was so excited about the bucks he had received even thought he spent $70 to get them, I think he figured it might motivate me to get back in the game. Tonight without a game plan or a single coupon this is how my return to CVS went down......

2 Colgate Totals $2.99 each
1 Crest 2 pack $5.99
1 Folgers Decaf $5.79
1 Sponge Bob Power toothbrush $6.99
1 CVS Face Wash $4.79

Total Value $31.43
Total OOP $5.54
Total Saved $25.80
earned $2, $2, $2, $4 ECBs
I should of earned a total of $11 in ECBs but they shorted me $2 ECB for one of the Colgate's and I didn't realize it until I got home:( In all I think it was a good unplanned trip that has got me itching for a little more CVSing, next time with a game plan and coupons:)~

Holy Sweet Potatoes Batman

One of my favorite plants is the Sweet Potato Vine. I love Sweet Potato vines big colorful leafs and it makes a great filler for low maintenance flower beds. Since I have two black thumbs this plant works great for me. The only down fall about Sweet Potato Vines is that it is so so so hardy if your not careful it can take over your whole flowerbed and when you go to remove it from your bed it leaves actual Sweet Potatoes in the soil that you have to dig out. Well this year I went to dig out my vine from the flower bed and I came across some massive sweet potatoes.

These definitely don't look appetizing but they have to win some award for size!

A Homemade Gift From the Heart

My sweet, super talented little boy painted Christmas ornaments for his Grandparents this year (I hope they aren't reading this). I purchased all the ceramic ornaments at Hobby Lobby, my favorite store! Hobby Lobby had tons of fun cheap craft ideas for the holidays.
Poopoo really enjoyed painting all the ornaments, we laid all six ornaments out on newspaper and painted using color at a time. It was so much fun! We will definitely do something like this again.

Here is the finished product. Aren't these the most beautiful Christmas ornaments you have ever seen? I hope all the Grandparents love them. Who wouldn't?

Pray for Pink or a good return policy!

So I might of totally Jinxed myself but i couldn't resit! For the past couple months I have had my eye on this super cute crib bedding at Babies"R"us. Its made by Wendy Belissimo and it is pink, black and white with a medallion print. For some crazy reason Babies"R"us has decided to not carry Wendy Belissimo anymore so the bedding was being discontinued and had been marked clearance. Every time I went into Babies"R"us I would check to see how many bedding sets were left hoping they wouldn't sell out before I found out the sex of my little peanut. Long story short I went in last week and they had one set left so I decided what the heck I bought it. I got home pulled it out of the package and held it up to the crib "SOOO PRECIOUS". I am already totally attached to this set so keep your fingers crossed for me:)

Yes I am still alive!!!

I know some might have wondered what has happened to me, Where have I been? I have taken a little break from the blogging and coupon world. I have not clipped a coupon in probably 3 months and still have enough shampoo to last me threw July of next year LOL! Everything is Ok with the baby He/She? is growing fast and I started to feel some movement this week:) I am still a little sick but slowly regaining my energy. I find out what I am having on the 22nd of this month, I cant wait!!! What an awesome Christmas present.
As for couponing I am not sure if I will get back into the game anytime soon, its kinda like working out once you stop its hard to get back into it. I do miss that adrenaline rush you get from paying $2 for $50 worth of stuff but I don't miss clipping and sorting. Thank you for everyone who has expressed concern.
