Hubby and I watched the movie Social Network, which was an interesting look at how the website Facebook came to be. Hubby made a delicious beef stew to cap off our "snowday". Im not a huge fan of beef stew but hubby sure can make one! I love Hubby's beef stew because it is never the same twice! To accompany our stew was my free rolls from Pepperidge Farm. They had a rebate form, and were found in the freezer section. They were overpriced, so this family wont be buying them too often. But free is in my vocabulary, they were yummy, nice and crusty and hot from the oven.
I got my maternity leave paperwork from school the other day. 3 Months out of work is more money than I thought, so im going to be getting back into the couponing scene. My first couponing deal was the other day. Baby wipes for Miss Baby's bum were $3.00 on sale, I had a .75 coupon that they doubled so the wipes ended up being $1.50..... not a bad deal. More deals to come later :)

So hubby was sweet enough to let me run into the church thrift store real quick on Saturday morning while him and miss baby read the paper and enjoyed the morning sun in the truck. One of my new year's resolutions is to add more classic versatile pieces to my wardrobe. I found these great items all for $5.50.I didn't have alot of time to look or even try things on.
- Grey workpants straight leg with a cuff on the bottom
- Two white button down shirts 1 Ann Taylor Loft with great seams and a light weight Gap button down
- A denim Eddie Bauer Skirt (I didn't realize it was brand new with tags on it until I got it home original price $29.50)
- An adorable cream sweater with black swirls on the bottom with a black ribbon belt
A couple of the items are a tad tight im hoping when the baby weight starts to come off more they will fit like a gem.
And of course im starting my Christmas shopping for next year :) If you didn't remember my side of the family always has a mission to get everything in each other's Christmas stocking second hand.
- A woodworking magazine to go in my dad's stocking
- A board book that looks brand new for Miss Baby. The sticker on the back of the book said it was originally $6.99

She was two weeks old yesterday, and doing wonderfully! She left the hospital at 6lbs. 1 oz. and is already up to 7 lbs. 5 oz. My little peanut will not be little for too long. We are still trying to figure each other out, but we are eating every 4 hours at night, and getting on a routine! I hopefully will bring her out thrifting and sale shopping starting next week so stay posted!
But lately we've just been doing alot of the above! So once we are all rested we'll get back to posting!
