sunday funday!

whoop whoop!
sunday funday.
ahhhh. its almost time to go back....
you know where.
that lovely place that leaves HUGE amounts of money in my checking acct.
(a little positive affirmation!)
so i hope everyone had a fabulous weekend. they go by super fast. i was off
again on friday and i am loving those long weekends.
when they are done, i will cry.
like. a. baby.
not lying.
i cry over everything.
sooo, how bout this. the latest story that made me cry.
i have a friend who has 4 sweet lil boys. yep 4 of them.
i honestly do not know how she keeps her sanity. but she does.
god. bless. her.
no really.
so they went to Cedar Point, which is the most amazing place on earth.
ok. maybe not THEEE most, but pretty close.
its one of the world's best amusement parks.
anywhosie, (sorry, i know i get off track)....
she said when her and peanut #2, were on the ginormous ferris wheel,
he told her he was going to look for his grandma in the sky.....
(she passed last january from cancer)
whatttt a lover bucket. like seriously. it made us literally cry when she told us.
how freaking sweet is that????

so weekend recap. i was off friday and i did fun stuff, like mow the lawn. clean the house.
laundry. i went and visited another friend who just
had a little princess about two weeks ago
and i went to THE WALMARTS. ugh. i hate THE WALMARTS.
wait. i really love THE WALMARTS, but i HATE the people who
frequent THE WALMARTS.

i love their prices and needed to get cleaning goodies so i HAD to go, but
i have never seen so many down right scary people. ugh. not even kidding.

i have commited to this spending fast.
read all about it here:

this blog is amazing. please. go and check it out. you will find
so many ways to cut corners,save, etc. i love reading the
stories of people who have actually done this.

so my intentions are to do this for as long as possible to get some bills paid and build
up my savings acct.
this is not an easy task for me. trust me. i love
to shop, dine out, buy 'good' groceries, go to starbucks, etc. etc. etc.
the list is longer then the misissippi, but i know in the long run i will be happier
and let's face it: financially better off! yippee skippy!

so let me know if any of you have ever tried this. did you succeed? was it difficult?

i can do ANYTHING i set my mind to. i have a strong personality. i am not going to lie though.
this. is. going. to. be. tough.
tougher then beef jerky.

i have been tested a few times already. everything is on sale....of course. now that i have committed.
butttt, i found a pair of sandals for 13 bones. 13 doll hairs. yep.
they were pink.
they are still at the store.
wooooo whooooo. i did it. not willingly. but i did.
and that is all that matters.

saturday: bachelorette party. how bout the only girls that wanted to actually go
out after dinner were the mother of the bride, the sister and me?? and honestly, i could have went
home to watch 48 hrs, cuz that's what old people do on saturday nights, but i didnt....i hung....2 beers later. oh boy. i am old.

sunday: volunteer event for the MS pedal to the point. we moved over 3000 pieces of
luggage for bike riders who pedaled over 120 miles in two days. yikes. it is always so
heart warming to do a volunteer event. i am going to try to help more. :)
have a nice week, blendsies.
let me know your tips on saving moola. i could share use a few.

have a happy week, filled with sunshine smiles and maybe some buttercream.
