Total Coupon Dork

Last week I collected coupons from neighbors to get stocked up on this rice I like to eat with fish. It was the Uncle Bens Wild and Long grain rice but its the kind you heat in the Microwave for 90 sec and your done. I also scored some I can't believe its not butter for an unbelieveable price. I ended up with 18 packs of rice and 8 things of butter for 50 cents each. I was on cloud nine. Then this week the ads came in and I am just as excited for Nalley pickles to be on sale 3 for $5 so 1.66 each and I have 8 x 75 cent coupons for those. I am picking up some chex cereal for 1.25 a box and General Mills cereal for 1.66 a box. Oh and crackers for 1.25 a box. I am in coupon dork heaven right now!!
I had a brag worthy shopping experience today. I had a bunch of BOGO coupons for beauty products and I also scored on buying some things at target all with coupons that gave me a $5 gift card. By the way I used my Red Card and save 5% to boot! So all of the items in the picture for $60.81 and they gave me $5.00.

The Homestead

Our last trip of the summer took us up the Provo Canyon to the little nestled mountain valley town of Midway UT. We couldnt have picked a better time to go there with the changing of the seasons the mountians had the most beautiful views. Zoey pointed out that this must be where the Lorax lives becuse there are truffala trees in the mountians. We stayed 3 nights at the Homestead resort. It did not disappoint. The landscaping was beautiful and they had enough activites to keep my little family happy. We swam, golfed, shopped, horseback ride, went snorkeling in the 65ft warm crater. I even read a whole book while Zack wathed the BYU vs Utah game. We enjoyed wonderful snacks, the Simons restraunt, the Franny's diner and visited some friends in Heber. We had a wonderful time bringing our family closer together and enjoying some quality time!

This was an exciting day for little Zoey Lou. She has been waiting for months to go to preschool. She was so onery getting ready to go today. The most funny thing she threw a fit about was that she had no papers in her back pack, only a rock and a hairbrush. I had to tell her the papers come from school and she was all set if she really had a rock and a hair brush in her pack! She had no problems with me leaving her, and she reports that preschool is so much fun!!

Just not my thing....

I should really be better at telling about my kids and our lives. Honestly most of the time I have very little spare time and this is just one of those things I push off until later. But I had to share these pictures!! Zack took them in our back yard and I think they turned out very nice.

First Day of School!

The first day of School was bittersweet! I was excited to see them off yet secretly I miss having them around. The have both been in school this week since Wednesday and I got a taste of what my life will be like....well for the next little while and I have one word...YAHOOO! I think I will be able to accomplish so much of what I want and they will be learning and having fun with their friends at school. What a WIN/WIN situation! This Wednesday I was able to take Zoey to the Rec center all by herself and she loved it! I am glad I have these next few months to give her lots of mommy time before Izzy Mae gets here and hogs me up!

A Secular year ended

Its offical Chazz is done with Kindergarden! I am so proud of him and was near tears at his program today. He had a fashion show where he dressed up in his Jazz gear and had a basket ball and sweat bands on. He did such a great job singing too. He would hate that I said this but I really think he likes singing and is pretty good at it too. He is so excited to go to 1st grade and stay at school all day and eat lunch there too. Zyan is done with the 2nd grade tomorrow. I cannot believe how well she has done this year and how much she has learned. I think I forgot to post this but she made it into the second grade spelling bee. She did so well and made it through 4 rounds. She is great at reading and math and the only thing she needs to work on is her handwriting. She is excited for cursive in the third grade and I hope that she will have more of the same kids in her class again Zoey is longing for the day she can go to school! For now she goes to her pretend school (daycare) 2 mornings a week so I can keep up with all of my Huskiez work responsiblities. It counts for Zo because she gets to pack a sack lunch like Zy (its just her snack!).
