You have searched me, Lord, and you know me. You know when I sit and when I rise: you perceive my thoughts from afar. You discern my going out and my lying down; you are familiar with all my ways. Before a word is on my tongue you, Lord, know it completely…For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made…Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. Psalm 139:1-3,13,16

Coupon deals and Guess who?

Well here's the latest look at preggo belly

Not the greatest shot, can't blame anyone but myself for that face! It is a good indication of how big the belly really is! HAHA!

I had some professional pics taken on Wednesday by the great people at Three Nails Photography (hit them up if you need some pictures soon) and can't wait to see how they turn out--could be a couple weeks before we get to see but I will happily post some when I have them!

Here is a look at the coupon deal I ran this week for some stuff we actually really need and use…deodorant, dishwashing detergent, toothbrushes, body wash, candy!, and a couple other little things. My Swiffer stick broke (I have had it since early college so I think it was well worth paying for again---I got it free for being a demonstrator in Kmart) and I was able to get a new one in one of the deals at Walgreens this week.  Here is a shot of all I got and a breakdown on what I spent..3 transactions.

There are 7 deodorants, 2 battery toothbrushes, 4 big bags of M&Ms,  a 2pk of avent pacifiers,  Mr Clean magic eraser 2pk, 2-15ct Cascade dishwashing inserts, 1 swiffer starter kit, 4 large men's body wash, and a tiny candy pack of cherry drops (25 cent filler item). spent total of $61.77 after coupons including tax, got $10 back in RR to use at next trip and SAVED $66.01  and that was on things we need and will use ( I don't mind spending a little for the brands and products we would be buying anyway--it's really nice to save on them too and for some reason my hubby will only use this particular deodorant)

I coupon to be a good steward of money and so that if I want to splurge on something that is a bigger or more expensive item I won't feel too guilty.  My husband and I work hard and we like to do fun things and have nice things--this makes it easy for me not to feel as if I am throwing away money.  If I want something nice, I will shop around, check prices, and look for ways to save. Once I think I have a good deal or a good price I might wait a short time to make sure something else (like a discount site or a big sale) doesn't come up, but then I buy it.  Sometimes after I buy the item a better deal comes along (oh well) or I see it cheaper but I know that I have saved in other ways that make it ok for me to spend money on something that is nice, that I really want, and that will hold up and is not cheap.  Not everyone is able to say that but we are blessed to be able to.

My point is this----I have watched and waited and been patient and last week I was able to order my stroller….he arrived yesterday and I am SO happy to introduce to you our new addition….BOB!!!!

Isn't he handsome! I can't wait to get to use him! I chose orange--I think it looks very sporty and will be fine for boy or girl so I can use it for a long time!  I put it together last night and I have just been admiring him ever since then! See ya on the trails in October- suckas----hopefully (or as soon as my doctor says I can run again!).
