Instagram Friend

I love instagram and have met so many amazing friends from there. One of those friends is Rachel. Her and her husband moved here last year from Pennsylvania with their 4 kiddos. I had been following her since before she moved and when I found out she was coming to Kansas and moving within an hour from me I was so excited! On Monday it finally worked out when I had to run farm errands in her neck of the woods to go for a visit. 
Her house was so warm and cozy. Fresh bread was baking in the oven and the smell as you walked into the house was SO de-lish!!! She even bagged up a loaf for me to take home and let me just say it didn't last very long, it was devoured very quickly. So good!



Thank you SO much Rachel for the great coffee, warm bread and amazing visit. You were the hostess with the mostess! Hopefully we can get together again soon.

We are the Champions!

On Saturday night our boys were in the championship game for the boys tournament. The girls basketball team decided to have a little team building activity so the spent a couple hours before the game getting their spirit on! They did a great job and looked SO festive!




 The game itself was a nail biter in fact we won in overtime! A little intense, the guys played amazing and we had such a great time cheering them on. I especially loved how the coaches we dressed up and was right there in the student's section with all of the kiddos.






 Congrats Guys ya'll did a great job and it was fun to watch you put your heart and soul into it. Now it is on to the girls tournament this week. In fact we have 4 games to go to! Go Warriors!

A Penny Saved

When I posted the picture the other day about how I knocked my grocery bill down, I had several people ask how I did it. Let me preface it by saying I am NOT perfect at it. I know that there are people out there that do a much better job at saving money on their groceries, please share your tips, this is just how I have done it. First off I shop mostly at Dillons/Kroger I like it because of a couple of reasons over Wal-mart,  #1. I can earn fuel points and #2. I find that when I go into Wal-mart things jump into my cart that I don't need! I get coupons from our Sunday paper and now that people know I coupon friends give me their coupons which I'm so grateful. I also follow an acquaintance of mine who has a blog focusing on saving money and she does most of the leg work for me so I check it often www.moneysavingmom.com I love this blog because she talks about all kinds of ways to save money not just on groceries. Also another key for me is to be organized I try to always look up on the Dillons/Kroger website to see what their sales are for the week. Their new ad comes out every Wednesday. I then match up my coupons with their sale to save the most.
My goal every week is to spend $100 or less on everything groceries, shampoo, toothpaste, etc. the key word is GOAL.  But, before you think I am all that and a bag of chips! Just remember that we have all the milk we want and we also have our own meat both of those are a big expense for a family of 7. Like I said I know there is so many more ways to save and I would LOVE to hear from you as to what you do so please let me know your secrets. Happy Shopping!

The Flea Market

I have been telling my brother-in-law for a long time now that he should sell his stuff at the flea market. I told him he would do so well. After I talked him into it I became nervous, what happens if he didn't sell anything I will feel so bad. Needless to say I shouldn't have worried. He all but sold out!! The picture below was at the very start of the day. People LOVED the barn wood doors! I was so glad things went well for them.

 Crazy Robin came up from the promise land also she has always wanted to come to the market. She sold her hair bows and candles that she makes. It was so nice to visit with the in laws and Robin while making some money. It was a great day, it is always so fun to see all the treasures people buy. It was also so nice to see many familiar faces and have a chance to visit with them. I would say the flea market was a success and I'm looking forward to it again.
