Grocery Game for week 5

Yesterday was the day. Saved 23%, which was right at $30....keeping my bill under $100!!! (I'm such a dork, I know!)

Okay - I cried.

When Gabriel and I came home from the gym tonight, Jonathan was home from work - Gabriel ran up to him hugging him and telling him about his day. Then he grabbed Jonathan's face, and kissed his forehead and said "Daddy, your my best friend. Thank you for Chuck-E-Cheese yesterday". (Jonathan took him to Chuck-e-cheese last night to play games.) I got instantly chocked up, and Jonathan looked up at me and said "did you tell him to say that?" I had never heard him say it, or talk about it.

I think we are raising a pretty sweet little boy.

White Water

This past Saturday, Jonathan and our neighbor, Steve, took the kids to White Water. Brave men. They got some real cute pictures, and had a great time. The dads were completely exhausted when they got home.

Some Pictures From The Past Two Weeks

I'll just explain the pics as they come. :o)

Since I've gone back to school on the weekends, Jonathan has been doing full time daddy duties. I think he appreciates what I do even more.
My Little LoveDaddy's little clone
My nephews from FL came up to visit for a week plus, and we got a picture of all of my mother's grandsons. Gabriel had so much fun with them....he would just refer to them as "his cousins". ( girls in this, yes, I'm still spoiled!)
Gabriel and his "little Addison" at the sports complex for movie in the park night. He told me later over and over how pretty she was...and did I like her. :o) Preparing me for the future???
We all went down to Callaway Gardens for the day, and stopped at the safari drive through. You actually drive through it, and all of these animals (Giraffes, zebras, buffalo, deer - we saw Santa's!) come up to the car for you to feed. The boys loved it. Heck, I loved it!
Inside the rented quality van. Loved the ceiling!
Wow!! He was so excited over the animals!

Grocery Game Update

Week 3 - I'm really starting to get the hang of this...and I have a nice collection of coupons all organized in my little folder. I did my weekly shopping today, and saved 20%. I actually get excited about getting the paper on Sunday - cutting out all the coupons, and then shopping on Tuesday!! Real Housewives of Villa Rica!

Dinner Idea

Just putting this out there...something I came across tonight with what I had in the house. Since I've been doing this grocery game, I've stocked up on some ravioli and and some pasta sauce....which is just perfect for my carb-eating hubby. So, tonight I made a ravioli lasagna!! Just used the cheese filled ravioli for a little extra flavor instead of the lasagna noodles. Which, I guess you could use any of them...meat, spinach, mushroom, etc.

:o) Just sharing! (It's for you, Amanda, since I know you'll be in a crunch come dinner time!)

Rock Band Party!

We went to a surprise party for our friend, Rob...and everyone chipped in and bought him Playstation 3 and Rock Band. Needless to say, we had quite a good time. I'm thinking about taking the stage in my near future with either a microphone or drums.

Surprise!! (Rob's reaction...."awkward...")
Fun Phil with little Miss Audra
Rob and his dad
I love rock and roll....put another dime in the jukebox, baby!
This is the party scene for 5 hours - they just rotated seats
