OK I would like to have a Giveaway around the first part of Feb. The only problem I'm having is figuring out what to giveaway. I have narrowed it down to a couple things. The first is a totally AWESOME book alled The Arts & Crafts Bsy Book 365 ARt & Craft Activities to keep toddlers and Preschoolers busy along with a little GC to a "hobby" store to get some of the supplies you would need to do some activities or the second one is a little basket filled with some household goodies (febreeze candle, glade plug-ins, pledge multi purpose spray, these are just a couple examples of what might be in the basket) so this is where YOU come in. Please post a comment telling me which one you would rather receive and the one with the most votes will be the winner and will be the prize of my FIRST giveaway! I promise I will not make the rules hard to be in this contest!! I look forward to seeing which prize is chosen for the winner!!

Harolds Clothing

Harolds is closing and tomorrow is there last day. For those of you who dont know it is a clothing store that is VERY expensive! I went in as everything in the store was at least 80% off the orginal price. I walked out with 12 items. If I would have paid the orginal prices I would have spent over $826 (I cant even start to imagine spending that much on 12 pieces of clothing!!) after all the discounts I paid $54 and some change!! I'm gonna go back tomorrow afternoon hoping that the discount will be more than it was today but I'm not complaining because I save 93%!!!!! WOO HOO

Victoria's Secret

Went to the mall yesterday to just look around with my little one to try and wear him out. We walked into almost every store!! At VS (Victoria's Secret) they had lots of clearance bins with bras. ALL clearance bras are $14.99 no matter what they were marked!! I saw several that the orginal prices were over $60!! That is 75% off!! Great great deal for VS bras (which have just recently become my favs so I'm gonna hit there tomorrow!!) Good luck finding them at your local VS.

GOD is sooo GOOD!!

My dad has been sick for a very long time, Agent Orange from Nam, anyway he finally went to file for SSI (social security disability)(after my mom bugged him for years) and they sent him to a lung specs in which they learned he has lost about 46% of his lungs already :-( and to a shrink. The people at the SS office told my mom that most people dont get approved for SSI the first time around that they would probably have to file a couple times before my dad would get it. I just got off the phone with her and my dad GOT his SSI the FIRST time he applied!!
Just wanted to share my families wonderful news and to say that GOD is GOOD!!!!
Have a blessed day :-) and thanks for reading...
