That's a deal!

Smith's has 1 dozen eggs for 50 cents (why is there not a cent sign??) and at Target you can find packs of gum for 48-52 cents. There is Trident, Orbit, Stride, Dentyne in various flavors, they are at the end of a snack aisle on clearance! Now, what can I fix for dinner with my eggs and gum?

Spring Break Recap

I know, you've been DYING to know what we did for Spring Break. Rest assured it was super fun and exciting. Here is a detailed day-to-day account of all the fun and excitement.


We had never been to the BIG gardens before, so this was exciting. It was great to just let the kids run around since it wasn't crowded at all. Not all the flowers were in bloom, but it was still beautiful. Plus, we were accompanied by some FUN people!


I like to call Tuesday the start of the bad weather, because it not only started bad, but it got worse from there. The kids played with cousins and I was left alone with Molly, so I read!


Tax Day! Our taxes were done, so we went bowling with some neighbors. (Super fun neighbors!)I had read on She Shops Smart AND Fun, Frugal and Free (you should add both of these to your Google Reader!) that Maggie Moo's was giving a free scoop of ice cream to each customer on Tax Day. So guess where we headed after our fun game of bowling? If you said "Home to take a nap.", you're wrong. We went for FREE ice cream.They even gave Molly one, so technically I had a free scoop and a half! YUMMY!


Thursday ROCKED. With our many inches of wet, wet snow, we camped out inside, mourning the loss of one of our tree branches. This picture does not even do justice to the amount of snow we had. I was way to lazy and cold to go out any earlier to get a good picture, I stayed wrapped up in my SNUGGIE!Josh did save the day by coming home with the rest of our band for Guitar Hero and the new Guitar Hero Metallica game.

If you ever need a place to rock, our living room is available.


On Friday we (me & the kids) drove to Coalville where my parents were camping with old people. It was a bit chilly, but that didn't keep the kids from chasing the bunnies and throwing one million rocks into the river. All the pictures are on my dad's camera, so currently I have no proof that it was fun or exciting. But it was.

Hope your Spring Break was just as fun and/or exciting! Let's hear a cheer for back to school Monday!!!

"Quote" of the day

Today we were at the mall and as we walked past Claire's, I decided to quickly look in and see if they had a necklace to go with a new outfit I bought. We had not taken more than three steps inside the bright pink with every other color of the rainbow store, when Gavin said "This doesn't feel right to me." His dad is so proud.

(We were at said mall looking for Easter Sunday clothes. If you yourself are still looking for cute church clothes, go to The Children's Place. Sunday clothing items (and other select styles) are on clearance and you get another 30% off on top of that!) We picked up this, this, and this.

Barbie Cake

I never had a Barbie cake for any of my birthdays, I am sad about it, but have been able to move on.

Apparently, Carrie Underwood never had one either. She felt the need to dress as one last night on the ACM awards. WTC? (What the crap?)

Can't Hardly Wait......

for October!!!

New Friends on Yo Gabba Gabba!

One of our favorite shows is Yo Gabba Gabba! We have watched it ever since it started, Molly was just a few months old. My famous brother had the inside scoop for us. He played a few shows with The Aquabats, whose lead singer is one of the creators of Yo Gabba Gabba! Molly loves the show, knows all the characters names and has some Gabba toys. She was serving up the Gabba gang for lunch in her kitchen the other day. So Yummy!

There are great songs on Yo Gabba Gabba!, everyone can sing along. A favorite of ours is "There's a party in my tummy, so yummy, so yummy" it's all about eating your veggies. Another good one that we sing to our kids a lot is "I tried it, I liked it", since we have difficulties with variety in our diet, so we sing it A LOT. Another one I sing to Josh is "Hands to yourself, keep your hands to yourself". No explanation needed, really.

Today is a special day on Yo Gabba Gabba! Jack Black is going to be their new friend! We are all so excited, the DVR (grrrr no Tivo) is set to record, and at 2:30 we will be tuning in. We love new friends. Here's a preview!
