New Furniture, & Other Odds & Ends

Did I mention that my in-laws took us furniture shopping a few weeks ago?

Well, they did. {Isn't that the sweetest??}

And yesterday, it arrived!

Sierra and Kenners immediately jumped up on the couch for a story the second it was in its place!

And they've been enjoying it ever since ;)

Shortly after getting furniture situated, the {already cold} weather turned . . . colder.

Guess I shouldn't have complained about the 48 degree temps, huh?


We braved the winter-like weather anyway, and headed to Makenna's first dance class of the year {we'd been on a break since Christmas}. Once we got home and had dinner, I caught this sweet moment between sisters:

Kenners and Kam don't always get along superbly, so this precious moment really touched me. And we all enjoyed a nice, quiet evening. Jeremy and I even caught a few minutes of that new show on TLC: Extreme Couponing. Have any of you seen it? Oh.my.goodness. I knew that you could save money by using coupons, but seriously? This was AMAZING! One family bought $1,000 in groceries for . . . .

Wait for it . . .

Under $45!

I know that couponing is a full-time job, and I don't expect it to come naturally {at least not right away}, but if these women can save 90%+ on their shopping trips, surely I can cut my grocery bill by a little, right? I'm inspired to at least try!

Anyway . . . getting a little off track.

So, when we went to bed we noticed some flurries, and woke up to this:

Snow, people. In April. And I know I keep saying that I'm going to do better with my weather mood, but really? Snow? I guess that's what I get for complaining about all that rain ;)

So the girls and I did what any normal person would do when stuck inside {again} on a cold morning:

Made {YUMMY} crepes for breakfast!

Who said good food can't make things better?

Kenners look so sweet in that picture. Grant and Eli don't get along so great either....I think it is the age difference. Boo to the snow, but those crepes sure do looks yummy:)

Yay for new furniture to mess up. :)

Love that sweet pic!

I watch that show too and Im in awe! Im a couponer and get excited over saving 30% Im on a quest now to save 50%...I dont have the storage room that they do to store the huge haul they take in but Im gonna try to for 50% savings anyway...we shall see how it goes!

Yes, that couponing show is crazy. I had seen some of them at a friend's house a while ago, and then the new ones the other night...not sure I can devote that much time to figuring it all out, but I am trying to get better. I have a local friend who is big time into couponing and she writes a blog and does seminars, so that's a start. Although the other day I had a coupon for diaper cream, bought the cream, forgot to give them the coupon...sigh. ;)

Crazy weather...ugh! I hear you!

Beautiful pictures of the girls, like always.

WooHoo on new furniture! It looks comfy!

That pic of the girls is so cute.

Jenny said...

Oh and I haven't watched that show, but I do use coupons. I find it hard to save much on groceries. However, I can get really cheap to free household and beauty supplies!

I totally get how the snow can put a damper on your mood. Yuck!!! But whoo hoo to new furniture. I love Ashley furniture :) That picture of your girls is too sweet too...makes up for the crummy weather!

Colleen said...

I want to come visit you in your new home, sit on that comfortable couch and be served those delicious crepes, ok?

Bless your heart, I can't believe winter is still in your next of the woods. While you are turning up the heat we are turning on the AC. Crazy isn't it. Love the dance outfit.
Hope all is well with your family.
Blessings!

Good food ALWAYS makes things better. This is why I cannot lose any weight! :)

I have tried couponing off and on for a while. I need a system or something, because I just can't quite figure it out!
