just the beginnng...

...of my couponing adventures.

i walked into walgreens yesterday with a piece of paper [battle plan well written out] and my coupons. i was so excited to see what happened. i walked in and picked up all this...
[a pack of sara lee hamburger buns is not pictured; they were left in the kitchen!
and yes the pack of candy corn had been opened, half eaten, & put in a baggie!]

after a couple different purchases and a return [im learning here folks!] i walked out with all these goodies for $7.29! basically the cost of the carmex things... not bad for a beginner. i plan to get a lot more goodies for cheap of free soon!!! keep posted kids!

yeah im late... day 19 of 30 i know i have fallen off the blog planet, but with good reason. our lives have been a little crazy lately. within two weeks we had given our notice [on the 1st] to move out and were moved out on the 11th. nuts, i know. especially with a 13 month old! lots of late nights while someone sat at the house, cause night time is the prime time to get stuff done. anyway, so my 30 day challenge was put on unintentional hold...

without further ado...
i start over where i left off...

day 19- nicknames you have and why you have them

i have had many nicknames over the years. lots of them are of this sort [noun]water. for example, sour water, gutter water, etc. not pleasant but you get the idea! i think these all came from people trying to be funny...or so they thought. a good friend of mine calls me swater and has done so for a long time. i in turn called him jwater! now i have the pet names like babe and love...oh and booger face. :] these are used by steven! haha... so there you have it!

glad to be back on the blog. ive really missed it.

day 18 of 30 {on time!}


day 18- plans/dreams/goals you have

hmm...where to start.
* get out of debt & ahead/prepared for the future
* lose weight (always a goal, right...) - just enough to feel healthy and in shape
* really make time for "me"; to journal, read, take a nap, anything!

* have a date night with steven on a regular basis
* grow closer to Jesus - you can never be close enough!

* have more babies!!!
* be a stay-at-home-mom...eventually.

* go on a real vacation somewhere

i think ill stop here. i could probably go on for days. i guess i could come back and edit this too...

day 16 & 17 of 30

day 16- another picture of yourself

[custom print made by a good friend as a surprise for steven.
it's not a painting; more like a stamping.]

[ha. had to include this one. dont worry;
no one was behind the camera]

day 17- someone you would want to switch lives with for one day and why
if i was going to switch lives with one person for a day, it would have to be aimee. yes, YOU aimee. you seem to be a woman who is organized with things under control. maybe if i was in your shoes for a day, some of that would rub off on me. plus, you seem to have a balance between Jesus time and tending to your "wifely duties". im just gonna say, we've never seen your house looking like ours. love you aimee!
