They PAID me to shop at Walgreen's!!!!

That is right. I was paid $3.04 to bring all of these products home with me from Walgreens' (plus two packages of Mentos gum that my son already snagged!!). I LOVE getting FREE things but when you can make a PROFIT at shopping, legally, that is even better!!! The toothpaste and chapstick had to be purchased in separate transactions. Why? When you purchase the toothpaste for $3.49 you will receive a register reward (good on your next purchase, same as cash) for $3.50. However, if you purchase more than one toothpaste, you will only receive one register reward. The same with the chapstick. The Physician's Formula lip products have a $10 rebate this month from Walgreen's and I also had coupons from the paper.
Enjoy the deals!!!!

Tuesday Tribute: My knowledge of the birds and the bees

Tuesday Tribute:
Jake: 7 yr. old son
Me: Mom, 30 something
Jake: Mom, I've got a question for you. Why do girls have babies and boys don't?
Mom: (thinking wtf is your father?) Well, you know how inside your belly you have your lungs and heart and liver?
Jake: yeah
Mom: Well, girls have an organ that boys don't have and that is called a uterus. This is where babies grow inside the mommy's belly and since boys don't have a uterus, you can't grow a baby. (Unless you are the guy that used to be a girl and didn't make the total change to a guy and still had his uterus.....but I didn't go into that detail!!)
Jake: Ohhh. So then they grow up, get married and then start growing babies?
Mommy: ummm, yep, that's what happens.
For more Tuesday Tributes, please visit Jay and Deb!

Slim Down Sunday

Today marks the first week of my official weight loss challenge. Treadmill and resistance workouts were completed 6 out of the 7 days. I am down 1/2 of a pound and have lost 2 inches inch on my waist and one inch on my hips. My friend Vicki also lost 2 inches but is down 4.5 pounds!!!!! WAHOOO!!!! I have decided to continue with my routine and am adding the Shred Challenge over at Shrinking Jeans to it. I figure adding anything with Jillian to what I am already doing has to be good!!!!

Great Gift Idea

Below are a few examples of photos that I have taken over the years. I can take any photo you have and turn it to black and white and leave a certain item in color. Contact me for pricing information if you are interested. If you live close enough, I can do a photo shoot for you with all of your photos on a cd for YOU to develop!!!
