I rocked Walgreens and CVS today, check out my blog to see my deals!

Glad you're back!!! :-)

Crystal, I am so GLAD to see you back up and running!! I know from experience that Blogger is just horrible about getting a LIVE person!

Typepad looks great and I'm glad to see that the posts are catergorized, definately a big help:)



I'm nervous that you decided to move from Blogger to Typepad, since I just did the opposite move. Here's hoping I don't run into the same problem!

Am so glad that you are up and running! You new home looks great! :)

Good luck with the new platform. What a shame to have to do all the work to move. Keep us posted on if blogger ever responds to your problem.


Hey if you live in Texas, Heb has brisket for .67/ pound. Great deal! They also have 5 pounds of potatoes for .97, 10 oranges for $1. lots of other stuff too. Happy Memorial Day weekend!! So glad we found your new website!

Like your new look! Sorry to hear about all that hassle with blogger.

I posted the wrong link at #46...the correct link is at #52! I hate it when I do that! LOL

You did great with your shopping trips! :)

Glad to see you have found a new home. Hope all is normal soon!

Thank goodness you're back!

So thankful that you are back. I hope that your girls are better. Mine has had double ear infections, so I can sympathize!
