Great Couponing Trip

My mother-in-law and sister-in-law are wonderful couponers. They are always getting amazing deals at different stores on all their items. I have tried to get into it a little, but usually end up not getting as good of deals as I thought at first. Well every once in a while I have a shopping trip that I am really proud of. Today was that day. I bought all these items for an amazing deal at Smiths. I ended up buying 5 Old Spice Body Washes, 5 Old Spice Deodorants, 2 Olay Body washes, 7 Cover Girl eye shadows, 1 12 pack of Charmin Bath Tissue, 3 Dawn Dish soaps, 1 Large Tide, 5 Herbal Essences Shampoos, 5 Herbal Essences Hair Care products, 2 Head and Shoulders Shampoos, 5 boxes of Crest Toothpaste, 1 large pack of Tampax Tampons, 1 Cover Girl Powder, and 2 Cover Girl Mascaras and only spent $40.03 for all 45 items. With just the sale prices and no coupons I would have spent $155.48, but I had enough coupons to save $115.45 which is a 74% savings on this deal. I couldn't believe it!! The best part of it all is that usually when I get deals with coupons I get a lot of things that Jeff and I don't usually use, but this time I only got things we use everyday. I was so happy about it that I called Jeff and he didn't seem so impressed so I thought I better blog about it. Yea!!!

First Christmas

Saturday was Brynnlee's first Christmas experience ever. I was really worried about how she would handle all the business of it all, especially since our preview day on Sunday at Grandma and Grandpa Great's house didn't go so well. Luckily she was a trooper and did wonderfully for the most part. She already is as crazy as her mom, not wanting to go to bed on time Christmas Eve (she stayed up until 11:30), and then getting up at 3:00 in the morning ready to go. We made her go back to sleep and wait. I didn't know a 3 month old would already get so excited over Christmas. We had a great day though, with one little spoiled girl from both sets of grandparents and Mom and Dad. She couldn't quite open her gifts by herself but she loved playing with them after. Thanks everyone!

Christmas Pics

Last week Megan took some super cute Christmas and summer pictures of Brynnlee. I loved them so much that I just had to post some of them here. I had a super hard time picking which ones to post because they are all so cute. I was showing them to Jeff and we couldn't believe how big our little girl is getting. We were picking out pictures to put up around the house and looking at how much she has grown since we first took her home from the hospital. She is such a beautiful girl and we are so grateful to have her in our home. Megan has taken some super cute pictures of Brynnlee. We are also thankful to have such a talented photographer in our family to spoil us with cute pictures of our girl.
