Almost the Weekend!

I, for one, am very glad it is Friday. Although we don't have anything too terribly exciting going on this weekend, I'll still take it. Let's see... what's happened since we left off?

Sassy and Little A had a play date yesterday afternoon at a friends house. It was pretty awesome because said friend's husband and older son were home and kept the older kids entertained with play-doh upstairs while the moms and little ones hung out in the basement and chit-chatted. Bliss.

Last night, we had a very successful grocery trip. I am continuing on my quest to learn to be a smarter shopper, use coupons, etc. I think I did really well last night. Our local grocery store is featuring a mega sale where you get $5 off if your purchase 10 qualifying items. When I added my coupons to this deal, I ended up with 2 boxes of Quaker oatmeal, 2 boxes of Orville Redenbocher Smart Pop popcorn, 4 bags of Kraft 2% shredded cheese, and 2 boxes of Reduced Fat Wheat Thins for $10.50! In total, I spent about $80, but saved 55% off of my original bill. That's a huge accomplishment for me!

This morning, Lynzee and I went to the gym at 6 a.m. Yeah, I know. Major. Hey, I am on a serious mission, folks. I upped my time on the elliptical to 22 minutes and then did the treadmill afterwards. I plan to go again tomorrow.

This morning, the girls and I hosted a play date at our house. I feel fortunate that I have friends that are willing to drive all the way down here every once in a while. Both girls are now asleep, and I am being a big, huge procrastinator and doing this entry instead of reading my book club books for Sunday. This month, we are reading Night (which I have read before) and The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas (which I have not).

We have a few more errands to run this evening, and tomorrow we are hosting another play date while Tyler does a painting job. Fun times. Hope everyone has a great weekend. Here are a couple pictures to peruse. Notice Sassy's hair- I honestly thought the day would never come for a braid!

I love french braids! I used to get them all the time when I was little. I also like the new blog name too :)
