Go Away Gustav!!!

Judging by the current forecast it looks like Gustav is headed our way. GREAT!! *sarcasm* Unfortunately, we live in a house that floods so we will be getting the heck out of here if it doesn't change directions SOON! No more posts from me until this thing is gone. I need to start packing and picking as much as I can up off the ground, just in case!

No Menu This Week

Okay, I know, I'm slacking already. No menu plan this week. I recently found out I am expecting #3 and I have HORRIBLE 'all-day sickness', so needless to say food is the farthest thing from my mind. Piggy is in from offshore so he will be on kitchen duty for the week!! Shhhhh!!! Don't tell him!! ;)

Crazy Week

Okay the week is over, all I can do is hope the next one isn't as busy. Piggy has been offshore for 11 days now. Of course he has to leave when we have lots going on.
Adi started dancing
and school last week.
KK has 'graduated' from P/T, now we only have to go once a month to make sure he isn't losing any abilities.
Oh, I almost forgot,
KK turned 2
and Adi turned 4!!! My babies are getting so big.

Grocery Goal for August

This month my goal is to spend less than $150 on groceries and household items. I will be taking a coupon class in September hosted by Carlie over at Why Ask Why. She has asked everyone to keep their receipts for the month of August. Here is what I have gotten so far:

1 loaf Evangeline Maid Bread = $2.69

2 Daily Advertisers = $1.25/each

Total including Tax = $5.31

I used a $5 RR that expired today and paid .31 OOP.

I wanted to get my newspaper at Wal-Mart where they are .99/each but by the time I made it to town there were no more.

Oh, and when I paid at Walgreens I also got a CRT for $3.00 of any 45ct Zyrtec... I think it may have been for the lady before me but printed after she left.

Back To School Bash

Today was the Acadiana Moms Back To School Bash! Of course Piggy had to do something unusual... Here it is:

Now I have a new nickname, The Duck Queen. Robbie is the Chicken Queen and we are the 'fowl sisters'.. Thanks again Piggy!!

Mom's Night Out!

A few weekends ago some of the Acadiana Moms got together at a local restaurant to take a break from the kids and of course GOSSIP ;)

A quick pic of all the moms.

The fried ice cream that took over 45 minutes to receive AND came in a to-go box.. Who gets icecream TO GO!?!?!

Wow, It's Been A While!!

It has been almost a week since I have posted anything... Last Sunday was my birthday, we brought the kids to the fountain downtown and let them have at it. We met Robbie and her crew there so Adasyn had someone to play with!

This is the cake Piggy got me for my birthday
