Can you believe it?

Oh my gosh. I can't believe it myself. First of all, we got this new computer and I got it all set up and it has an internal microphone so you can make voice recordings without a plug in microphone. Well anyway, my son was screaming and screaming and finally I decided to record it and show him how bad he was being. Yes a bit advanced for a 19 month old but I was hoping. Well anyway I made a 13 minute recording and then started playing it back. He got quiet immediately and listened to the whole thing. And then, what makes it even better is that he has stayed quiet and happy since. It's amazing what will calm the little guy but hey, I'll do what it takes to keep him quiet when his father and his sister are trying to sleep. Never know maybe this might help you ladies out. Night all.

Becoming a Krazy Coupon Lady

Ok, so I'm sure all you ladies know how much I LOVE free stuff. I'm constantly signing up. And if I can't use it then I'm sure I know people who can. Now I've found two really great websites that turn you into coupon savvy shoppers. I'm not coupon savvy, well not until I read these sites. I thought that saving a dollar on a $6 item was a great deal but not really. You should see how much these women save and they tell you how to do it too. For instance, I'm going to go shopping at Walgreens and CVS tomorrow and I NEVER do that, EVER. I thought that drugstores had outrageous prices but I couldn't believe what I was seeing on these coupon sites. Wow! I definitely want to be a Krazy Coupon Lady now :) I'm even going to buy a binder and some of those trading card pages they were talking about. Also I'm going to have a page on here just for "Store Brag Posts - Show Me What You Got". It'll be fun to see what everyone else gets on here as well. If you want to check out the websites they are:

New Years Resolution

Well I've finally gotten around to making my new years resolution. I want to live healthier. That means better eating, more exercise, and relaxing when the kids stress me out. I always have a hard time sticking to my resolutions so next month I'm probably going to be back where I started from but fingers crossed I'll be making progress. Another reason I want to live healthier is that my family, especially my mothers side, has heart problems. So what better way to start my resolution than to sign up for the Go Red For Women to get heart healthy recipes and exercise tips. And right now when you sign up you can get a Free Red Dress Pin. I used to have one but lost it. I got it in high school and had it for years on my purse where everyone could see. Unfortunately it fell off :( But yay, I resigned up and can't wait to show it off. So...though a little late Happy New Years and good luck sticking to your resolutions.

I'm a Money Whiz

LOL Oh my goodness, I can't believe you believed me. No I'm not a money whiz, but I'd like to be. Maybe I could be if I won this book from Sweeps4Bloggers. It's called The Cheap Diva’s Guide to Frugal and Fabulous Living. Who doesn't want that? Hey I'm no contest hog, head on over and throw your hat in the ring too. But hurry because it ends January 14. Good luck ladies! *<:)

Bite Me Cookbook

Ok yes it has a funny name but who doesn't? I mean look at the Naked Chef.....oh no wait I take that back. Ok well to those of you who didn't just leave scarred for life lol.

Head over to Eighty MPH Mom where you can win a Bite Me Prize Pack ( Bite Me Cookbook, Reusable Bag and Water Bottle)!

Ugh, I'm NOT a Morning Person

Well not this early anyway. My son apparently thinks it's normal to go to bed at 9 PM and wake up at 2 in the morning. I need a cup of coffee...

Are those eggs OK to eat?

If you're like me then you buy eggs on sale and then let them sit til you decide to make them a week after expiration date. I hate when that happens but with a little help from ReadyMade Magazine my dinner plans can sometimes still work out. In the helpful hints section was a tip to tell if your eggs are good or not. First fill a bowl with water then see if your eggs float. If an egg lies on the bottom on it's side. It's good. If an egg stands on it's end on the bottom then it's good, but needs to be eaten soon or hard boiled. If an egg floats, DO NOT EAT IT. It's definitely bad. Hope all you ladies had a great New Years. Truth be told I slept through it but dont tell anyone *wink*
