Bargain Hunters for free food


I sometimes think that my friend Becky and I are always on a hunt for the biggest bargain we can get anywhere money is to be spent. Some of you may not read her blog so I’m going to copy the deals she found this week by posting them here. Some of these deals you might already be aware of but it doesn’t hurt to be reminded.

Bruster’s Ice Cream:

THIS SATURDAY, March 1, Just roll out of bed and wear your pajamas to your local Bruster’s, and they’ll reward your sense of adventure with a FREE single scoop waffle cone! PJ weekend only comes once a year, so don’t miss your chance to get in on the fun!

Every Thursday is Banana Thursday! Bring your own banana and get 1/2 off a banana split.

Free baby cones to children under 40″ and free ‘doggie sundaes’ to your furry friend, so bring the entire family for some Bruster’s fun!

This post if for my mother. She says she is disappointed when she visits my blog to find that I haven’t blogged a new post for that day. So, here is your new post for today. I hope you are laughing, ’cause I am!

This is just a joke, Mom….I’ll update with a new REAL post….tomorrow!



Ebay….I took a year off but now I’m back in full swing. It’s a fun place to visit look around, sell, and shop. I enjoy selling more than purchasing. It’s neat to see how high your auction will go and to watch people fight over an item you really don’t care about. I’ve got only two items listed this week and they are both already higher than I expected (still four days left on each auction). It pays to purge those piles of clutter!

Kacie Time


I had lunch with my sweet friend, Kacie, yesterday. She made me a delicious peanut butter and jelly sandwich…it was so good that she made a third so we could split it! What a true friend…no fancy fixings…just bread and the good stuff (I’ll bring you an extra loaf next time I come over since we probably ate all that you had!). How sweet it is to fellowship with the body of believers. Kacie has been at our church for a year and I love seeing her and spending time together as much as possible. We’ve actually made a close bond with her parents who have driven down from St. Louis twice to visit with her and her husband. Kacie, you are such a kind and encouraging friend. Thank you for loving me. I look foward to eating many more PB&J sandwiches together (and grilled cheese, too!). Love ya!

Scrapbook Challenge


I’ve always wanted to enter a scrapbook challenge. Today, I finally did and this is the page I’m entering. The only requirement was that I had to mimic the designed sketch provided by the creative team at my local scrapbooking shoppe. Color scheme, embellishments, theme, and numbers and size of pictures were all left up to my choosing. It’s not one of my favorite pages I’ve ever done but it’s definitely one that I’ve spent the most time thinking about. I liked doing this challenge because it was just that….a challenge. It gave me some motivation to work but, winner or not, I accomplished one more page for the boys’ album. At least these pictures are out of the shoebox! HA! The winner will be announced on March 1 so I’ll let you know the result then.
