weekend wrap....

well, it's been a busy but good weekend. we had our neighborhood yardsale yesterday which i of course participated in. every yr i say i'm not gonna do it again, and every yr i do. i'm a sucker, what can i say? anyways, our friend shawn & my MIL gail had stuff they were selling too. so between the 3 of us, we made out good. lots of work though with lots of sun. i was pooped by last night & so ready for bed.

today was better. we went to church this morning where the message was on marriage. it was really good. we all need reminders on what our spouses need from us. after that we went to my MIL's, its so nice now that she is just 4 miles down the road. then house stuff & grocery shopping the rest of the day..

so here's how we have to put the ottoman now. finns finally figured out how to climb up on it & fall off & bump his head on the coffee table. nice...why don't little boys have any fear???
oh my...we have to keep an eye on my little huck finn... :)

i love coupons so every week when i go to the grocery store its like a game to see how much i can save. and today dans mom watched finn while i went so i could actually focus & it was so nice! so today i did the best i have ever done. so excited! i spend $80, but i saved $56!!!! sweet! i had some awesome coupons & publix just happened to have really good deals on what i needed. i also had 2 $5 off coupons but even without those i would have saved more the half of what i spent.
the best deal of the day though was the all detergent. they were on sale for $2.99 & i had 2 coupons, each for $2 off. so they were only .99cents a piece. LOVE it!

and here is what i bought at our neighborhood yardsale. i bought finn a little workbench. it's so cute & he loves it. i got this for $7 and i also got him 3 articles of clothes for .50cents a piece. i was so proud of myself for spending only $8.50.

playing with daddy..


so its been a lovely lively weekend which is the norm around here. finn is now in bed, dan is in his "man space" out in the garage, and i'm in here blogging. after my shower i'm going to hunker down with some coffee & cookies & watch a hallmark movie tonight..

good night y'all!!
