My thought for today...

Parenthood:  That state of being better chaperoned than you were before marriage.  ~Marcelene Cox
Like many other Moms, I have pictures of my family tucked away in a box, just waiting to be brought to life in scrapbook pages. Sadly, the pictures have been piling up, not the scrapbooks. So, I started using Picaboo to scrapbook-it is so much easier and less time consuming! I get to layout my own pages and they are hardback, so I can keep them out on my end table for display! Here are a few pictures of the one I had made from our Disney vacation last summer.

(Yes, those are my feet in the picture. But hey, I didn't say I was a good photographer!!)

If you sign up for a  Picaboo account you'll get a $10 credit towards your first purchase (and I will, too!). They also have other great picture ideas like calendars, mugs, etc. They are running a special-if you buy an 11x14 custom book, you get an 8.5x11 for free! It's a great gift idea!

Kroger Preview

I just glanced at the Kroger ad, and have already seen a few deals...
*Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Pasta; .49 (if you buy 10 specified items)-1.00 off 2 (here)=FREE
*Red Gold Tomatoes; .49 (if you buy 10 specified items)-1.00 off 2 (here)=FREE
*Nabisco Crackers; 1.99 (if you buy 10 specified items)-1.00 off 2 (1/30 Smart Source)=1.50 each

I am hoping to make a trip tomorrow to see what kind of deals they have that were not advertised!

Snique Away Vacations

While we rarely vacation, I still find myself checking this e-mail every week to see if any deal is too good to turn down.  They offer discounted rates on 4 and 5 star hotels and resorts across the country and around the world.  If you like to travel, check this site out.  They offer new deals every week, so your options are constantly changing! One of my faves for this week:


For $275/night, you can get a 2600 sq. ft. 3 bedroom penthouse suite! If you vacation with two other couples, your talking $92/night. I think that is a great deal!!

Here we go!!

Here it is, my rookie attempt into the blogging world.  I have been thinking about doing this for a while, but decided the time was finally right.  That is, until I found myself turning to my 5 year old son and asking for pointers...enough said.
Please be patient with me as I (or my son) work out all the kinks that are sure to happen with this strange thing called my blog.  I love nothing more than to snag a great deal and if I find one, why not share it?  I hope it can be helpful to other busy Moms out there who may not have the time or energy (but really, what Mom ever has either of those) to hunt down the the least expensive box of macaroni. 
If you see anything I miss, or have something to add, please share it!
