Taking advantage of this one

Thanks Cindy Cook for this awesome snag...

I am starting to get in the toy finding mode because Rett is starting to get curious and wanting to hold things and play!  Such a fun time :)  I love it...

So, I have been on the lookout for ABC's and numbers for the fridge and Cindy Cook came across this snag

You can get the numbers for just $1.90 and the letters for $2.98

I'm so excited about this deal.  

But I'm more excited because I get them for free.  I use Swagbucks  It is an online search engine but you gain swagbuck when you search.  So, the more you use it, the more swagbucks you can earn.  I got it mainly because I got a kindle a few years ago and I'm a cheap skate and didn't want to buy books online all the time and since the Kindle is linked with amazon, I thought swagbucks would be a good idea.

So, here's how it works...once you gain enough swagbucks, you can purchase things.  I have only ever gotten amazon gift cards and I normally get books with th…

Update...Birthdays, MaryKay and thrift finds

Thanks for all the birthday wishes yesterday!  It was a great day.  My grandmother came for a visit.  She brought beautiful flowers and some other nice gifts.  Kraig also got me wonderful flowers and box of Gobstoppers.  :)  He still knows the way to my heart ~ a box of Gobstoppers.  He also has set me up with a massage later.  :)  I am real excited about that.  And dinner this weekend, I think.  I don't know but I know he spoils me :)  I love him.  I'm so thankful for all the phone calls and messages yesterday.  It was a truly great day....thanks and this has been the best blessing/birthday gift ever :)

Here's my little guy just relaxing.

 Rett getting to meet his new buddy, Truett.  Kelly and Julie welcomed their little bundle of joy last Friday evening.  They are going to be close buds, we can tell already.  :) I can't wait to get my hands on this little guy and snuggle him.  
Rett has become the little talker.  He just talks my ear off most of the day.  If he isn&…

Your new Mary Kay representative

After much prayer and fighting with the Lord, I have decided to sell Mary Kay.

I hate sales, I hate confronting people to buy things, I am not comfortable with make - up so I don't wear it....

So, I decided to sell it.

At first, it was a way to stay busy during the 3 or 4 hour long naps that Rett takes during the day but the more I fought the Lord over it, He started to give me a new direction with it.

The Lord has blessed us in that I don't have to work and we are still able to pay our bills and even get ahead on paying off our school loans so although the extra income will be nice, it wasn't the main reason for me to get into it.

The main reason, I'm not good at filling up my day and I felt useless.  Kraig and the Lord (of course) constantly told me I haven't been useless - I mean, I get to take care of Rett all day...which is great however I can only clean the house so many times and I'm not an extremely crafty person so I just felt like I needed to contr…

I love the beach, crafts and MaryKay

Rett does not.

Actually, he loved the sand and had a blast exfoliating his feet but once we got near the water - he didn't want anything to do with that.  I'm sure it had to do with when Kraig put him near the water, a huge wave came in and got both of them...oopps!  But he didn't even like to put his feet in the water.  I sure hope that changes because I LOVE THE BEACH.

But never the less, it was a relaxing trip.  I was really nervous about the drive because Rett is not an easy passenger but he did really well and I was overall pleased with the ride.  He had fun jumping on the hotel bed, sitting in the sand and walking the boardwalk AND shopping of course....what's vacation without shopping :)

We got to see Grammy and Charlie while on this trip.  We were really excited to visit with them and introduce them to Rett.  It was a great trip.

Last weekend, we went on a family trip to the lake.  It was wonderful and even more relaxing!  The boys played golf and the girls (p…
