Baby Shower for Sister-in-law

Yesterday, me and Mother in law (MIL) had a baby shower for Heathur. Since she wasn't able to have her first once because she went into labor the day before the shower, we wanted to go all out. and boy did we. BUT... none of Heathur's friends came to this surprise baby shower after saying they would, which was sad... but I think she still had fun. we played guess the poop (really its a candy bar mushed in a baby diaper. I made a big Diaper tier center piece, around decoupaged hat boxes that i was up til 3am doing with my flour paste. Made a baby cake also. A guest brought two more diaper tiers. They were even better!! Using ONESIES!!! I never even thought of that!!Here are some Photos...

In other news... DH had a root canal that went sour and is all waa waaa baby.. LOL. He wasn't even able to drive. So i have been mad crazy all week, what with driving him, the YMCA campaign stuff, and the baby shower, and I went to a Jeff Dunham "concert" on Thursday which i must say was AMAZING!!! even tho our seats weren't that great, it still was HILARIOUS! Tomorrow my Friend Shannon is taking me to get a tattoo, this will be my 3rd tattoo, and yet still to this day i have never paid for one LOL!
Life is busy! I also just filled out an application to work at the YMCA, and am filling one out for Pearlann to start VPK!

Coupon Fever

I always had Coupon fever, dabbled here and there. Clipping coupons for the name brand items I had to have. Basically throwing the rest away. Then I discovered PRINTABLE coupons!! OH MY! What is THIS? So long as you have decent priced int (not $60 to refill it) this is an AMAZING tool. So i was going to Walmart (the cheapest place in town for just about anything) and saving 20$ a week with my coupons. Which i thought was AMAZING! Then i learned about local stores doing this thing known as Buy One get One deals they run a different one each week! REALLY!?!?! But is it really Cheaper my critical brain asked? So I did some research of my stores. WOW it actually was cheaper. For me, both stores that offer b1g1 deals are less then 3 miles in each direction. WinnDixie offers BOGO's on meat! how amazing!

Today i went to Publix i bought 8 Tortino's Party Pizza's at 4/$5
2 Ball Park Turkey Franks (hotdogs)
2 V8 fusion liter drinks
3/$5 Mott's apple juice
12 Progresso Soups
2 32 pks of Finish Dish wash
2 bertolli alfredo sauce
and 2 Macaroni Grill meals
this should have cost me $98
I Paid $44.58!!!
The Progresso, V8, BallPark, Spaghetti Sauce and the Macaroni Grill Meals were all buy one get one free. I had Coupons for all but the V8 and the Sauce!!!

Then I went to winn-dixie and Spent $34 and saved $33.46 all on BOGO meats! I got a Tender loin well two actually! lol and Pork Chops, and Boneless chicken breasts! and some nestle hot coco (cause they had mint, and it was BOGO too! )

Total Saving so far for this weeks Groceries? $86.79. An I still need to get some staples type stuff that arent BOGO from wally world with my coupons. which will average about another i'll round down and say 15$ in coupons. so This week I will have spent $125 and saved $100!!!

Now me and Hubby are about to go have a mini date with our Ice Cream coupons
