Weekend Wrap Up!

Friday night was the Relay for Life in Dupo.  Joe, Kiersten (my cousin that is visiting from Colorado), and I went and spent most of the night at the track.  We walked 6 miles, I know its not really that far if you think how long we were there.  We left about Midnight and I took my nephew Colin home and then Kiersten and I came home. 

Saturday we tried to go swimming but the water was freezing cold and the sun was not out.  We left Aunt Peggy's house and came home to get showers before we had to go to Mike and Becky's wedding reception.  I told Kiersten I would straighten her hair.  It didn't take as long as I thought it would.  It only took 45 minutes.  We had a good time at the wedding reception and I seen my friend Carrie that I haven't seen in forever.  We are definitely going to have to get together soon.  It was long over due.  We left the reception at midnight and it stormed the whole way home.  We could only go 35 mph because I couldn't see anything.  When we got home I went outside in the pouring rain to put Khaos inside.  He didn't even want to come out of his dog house because it was raining so hard.  Good thing I put him inside because it stormed all night.

Sunday Joe and I went with Greg and Emily to the Rascal Flatts concert.  I don't know if we are just getting older or if the concerts are really not that good, but the concert was just OK.  Jason Aldean is still the best concert we have seen.  There are so many teenagers that scream through the whole concert, we left a little bit early and went to good old Stake N Shake and ate.  We had a good weekend, I am looking forward to this week because Wednesday is Joe's Birthday and we have a whole day of stuff planned.

It feels like forever since the last time I did a confession Friday.  Joe and I have a weekend packed full of things to do, looking forward to spending the weekend with him

*I confess that I couldn't be happier to be on Summer break from school, I hope July 3rd takes it slow time because that is when I have to go back to school.

*I confess family is the most important thing in my life and its hard to see people you care about going thru a tough time.

*I confess I can't wait for Sundays just so I can get the coupons out of the newspapers.

*I confess I still haven't got to go swimming this summer, keeping my fingers crossed I get to go Monday.

*I confess Kiersten is here visiting and can't wait to tell her the surprise I have for her.

*I confess Moose needs a bath, I hate seeing eye crusties on him.  They just gross me out and don't like them

*I confess Joe's birthday is next week and I can't wait to celebrate with him and I can't wait to give him his present.  I know it he going to love it.

*I confess I had an ambulance call at 4 in the morning and when I got home at 6 Moose was waiting for me to come back to bed.

*I confess almost all the wedding planning is done, only a couple small things left to do. 

Hope everyone has a good weekend, feel free to add your own confessions.

Lazy Day!

They have a really tough life.  Maggie loves sleeping on the couch with her head on a pillow and Moose loves to sleep right next to me under a blanket.  This is all they have done all day. 

Weekend Wrap Up!

Friday Joe and I  went to the Brad Paisley with our friends Julie and Jeremy.  We had a great time, got there a little to early, but that gave us plenty of time to people watch.  You never know what you are going to see.  Saturday we were woke up bright and early at 4 am with some thunder and lightening so I got out of bed to put Khaos inside.  I hate to leave him outside when it storms.  Boy am I glad I put him inside because it stormed like CRAZY!!  Joe when to Chakoia's Fireman's picnic and parade.  He didn't get a chance to take a nap before he had to work all night.  I felt bad that he didn't get any sleep.  I did some running with my mom on Saturday. 

Sunday was Father's Day so I made Joe a No Bake Cheesecake (from the dogs since we don't have any kids) I think he really liked it.  I went down and spent some time with Larry because I was on crew in Millstatad Sunday night.  Monday I started the INSANITY workout program and I already feel like death.  I have never been this sore in my life.  I hope it works because I have never sweated this much in my life.  I have one final left to take and then I am on break until July 3rd.  Really doesn't seem that far away, but I get to start my first nursing class and I am nervous and excited at the same time.  I know I missed confession Friday so I will do my best to make up for it this week.

Weekend Wrap Up!!

Friday I went to Wal-Mart to do some shopping.  I got all my supplies for my coupon binder.  I was so excited about putting it together and getting all my coupons organized.  Friday night I was on Ambulance crew in Dupo. We had one call and the person wanted to go to SLU, of course.  So on our way back to Dupo there was an accident to get onto Popular Street Bridge.  I think we say in traffic close to 20 minutes before we got back home.  I worked on some homework and then called it a night.

Saturday I was up early to watch Keeley and Kennedy while Jason was at work.  The girls were as always way to cute and had way to much energy for me to keep up with.  We went and visited my mom at scrapbooking (trying to wear the girls out) and Melissa wanted to see my coupon binder.  Melissa and my mom both loved the binder and have since started their own.  I was brave and took both girls with me to Wal-Mart to pick up a couple more things.  We ran through McDonald's on the way home and got us lunch.  We ate lunch and then it was my favorite time of the day, NAP TIME!  Both girls didn' want to take a nap at first but they both ended up crashing for almost 4 hours.  Saturday night Joe and I went to Ashley and Brad's wedding reception.  The bride looked amazing!! We had a good time with some old friends, I think we made it home my 12:30. 

Sunday, Joe had to work and again I was on Ambulance crew in Millstadt during the day and Dupo at night.  I got my 4 newspapers and spent the night cutting out my coupons.  I love getting the coupons.  Monday I put those coupons to good use.  I went to Walgreen's and CVS, if I would have paid full price for everything it would have cost me $140.00 but I only paid $40.00.  Not a bad trip for my first one.  I was pretty excited and can't wait for the next one.  Here is a picture of everything I bought.
I am very happy with everything I got.  Hopefully soon I will be able to do this with groceries.  There is nothing better than saving money.

I know everyone has heard about the whole couponing thing and I can say that I am starting to give it a try.  I got 2 ten dollar Gillette razors for .98 apiece.  I am currently working on my coupon binder (yes I am going to be one of those people).  It is way easier to have them in a binder where you can flip through and see every coupon that you have.  If anyone has tips for me, please let me know.  I will take any help I can get.

Confession Friday!!

I know I haven't posted since last confession Friday, but things are crazy in the summer and I would rather be doing other things than sitting on a computer.  Anyway have a busy weekend planned, I will share when the weekend is over.

I confess that Kim has called me out so I am going to have to work on my blog.  I have been slacking lately.

I confess our air is finally working and it feels great in the house.  Never want to go without air again.

I confess I am doing the whole coupon thing, I will make another post about that.

I confess I am babysitting my nieces Keeley and Kennedy tomorrow and I can't wait.  I love spending time with them.

I confess I cleaned my car and you can't even tell from all the cicadas that I have killed.

I confess it is the 10th of June and I still haven't gone swimming.  I plan to change that come Monday.

I confess I only have 2 more week in these classes then I get a week off for summer break before I start my first nursing class.

I confess I bought Joe some red Velvet Ice Cream and it is the most amazing thing I have ever ate in my life.  There are chunks of cake in it and you can even taste the icing.  So Walgreen's had it on sale B1G1 so I went and bought all they had.

I confess Khaos has dug a hole under the house so he can lay there and stay cool.  I don't know what he is going to do when we get our concrete pad.

I confess I love the Wall Flower Air Fresheners from Bath and Body Works and they are on sale for 5 bucks.  I stocked up.

Feel free to add your own confessions.  I am going to try to blog more this coming week.

I know I haven't posted anything since last confession Friday but things have been busy.  I had midterms last week and lots of homework this week and I figure those should come first.  Mom and I went to the outlet mall on Friday and I didn't have time to do my confession Friday.

I confess that Joe and I went and seen the Hangover Part 2, the movie was very funny, but had a lot of nudity in it.  Could have done without it.

I confess I got a new Coach purse and I love it.

I confess I got Joe's birthday present at the outlet mall and I can't wait to give it to him.  I'm trying real hard not to give away what I got him.

I confess I love summer but this heat came on way to fast.  I still don't think I would trade it for winter weather.

I confess these cicadas are so loud and have taken over our trees in our back yard.  They can leave at anytime.

I confess I can't wait to go swimming, hopefully I get to go soon.

I confess hopefully we find out what is wrong with our air conditioner soon.

I confess I can't wait till we go to the Nascar race.

I confess I don't have anything else to confess about. This was a boring confession week.  Hopefully next week will be better.
