rAndOm.

So here's what we've been up to...

We are lovin' summer here in St. George. The weather could not be better right now! We've been spending a lot of time at our neighborhood pool and it's been great! Oh and the kids love it too! ;) Ben just finished up his last day of subbing and is currently looking for a job. Lame! Hiley is a MoNsTer with a capital M!!!! We recently decided to put a lock on our fridge because it is so not worth the fight. (we've had a lock on our pantry since she could walk!) Anyway, she really is ALWAYS eating!!! Oh, so the reason behind locking the fridge, she opened three things of yogurt last week at 5 a.m. and ate only one of them.... with a fork!!! AH!! Benson is getting so big and is always making us laugh! He is obsessed with Cars and loves Frank so we went and got him one the other day because he was so good while getting his pictures taken. ;) My most favorite thing though is how MUCH he loves Hiley. They are the best of friends and I seriously L-O-V-E it.

I have picked up two new hobbies!!! The first one has actually been a lot of fun. I started making watches with the sole intent to make them for myself and it has sorta just escalated. I've probably made around 50 of these babies since I started. It's been fun though!!! The second one is COUPONING! Who would of thought??? It's been a challenge for me to get this down because it does take a little time but it is SO worth! Big shout out to Brooke who has held my hand through this learning process. The thing is, is there are a bunch of methods and ways to do it, so you just have to find one that works for you. It is seriously awesome though! Oh, and I also won the BIG prize at Bunko... for the third time in a row!! Gotta' love it! :)
Peace...
Below are pictures that document our happenings!!



If you look closely, you can see Hiley in the background getting into my Bunko treats. Weird...

Ok so I know I am a TOTAL nerd for taking this picture but this was my first SOLO shopping trip and I was really proud of what I came away with. So here are the results:
(Pictured here is my Wal-mart shopping only but I also went to Albertson's that night...)
So.....
I spent a total of $128.94 but I SAVED a total of $137.77!!!! Holy crap that's awesome!

JO!! Hey there! I'm so glad I found you on here so I can keep up with you. First of all I miss you! Second of all your kids are so big I can't even believe it. Hiley is gorgeous and I swear the last time I saw her she was Ellie's size. Crazy. Sounds like you and your family are doing well. Ruben told me he saw you a few weeks ago and showed me the picture. Ha ha he was so excited. Well take care and keep in touch. Miss ya!
