Still relatively new to Arizona. I have lived on both coasts...I may be working my way inward now. :) I am the mom of a pretty awesome 17-year-old boy (though at this point he would wig out on my saying boy, kid or anything less than teenager) and the wife of a very amazing man. I have been blessed beyond measure when it comes to love, and isn't that really where the blessings count the most? I like to watch people and often I like to comment. I also enjoying helping people, but I kind of get saddened by seeing the same person always in the same boat.
Enjoy EVERY moment in your wedding gown. You can't stay in it forever...SO UNFAIR!!!!

Save Save Save
I just kind of pictured a little cheerleader when I wrote the title of this post. It is a little mantra that has been going through my mind lately. Yes, truly I keep hearing "SAVE SAVE SAVE." It is quite insistent. Of course another little mantra that has been banging on my mind's door has been "Spend Spend Spend!" It is one of those things that pop up when I am at a store and see a crazy good deal. A deal that is so good I just feel like it is a crime to pass up.
Like today (well today as I write this but it will post in the morning of what will be tomorrow - confused?), I went to Family Christian Stores, and honestly, I could have gone crazy. They have lots of great clearance sales going on right now, and I have a very hard time passing up the awesome deals. I used as much restraint as possible, and I managed to purchase just a few things. I bought a great ornament for Christmas which was 50% off (not dated and way cute so why not?), and I also purchased two of their awesome $5 items for members. If you have not perused that little section, I strongly advise that you do. They have a couple of great DVDs and some seriously great CDs too which could make FABULOUS stocking stuffers. Still at some point, you must call it quits on even the best deals. I did this...and it was a STRUGGLE!
OHHHHH, and don't forget to take their online shopper survey when you get home. That survey will hook you up with a 30% discount on regular priced items. It does have to be taken within 7 days of purchase and the coupon is good for 30 days from the date of the receipt. Well worth the time.
Southwest Airlines has a great travel deal going on right now...in fact today is the last day to get in on the deals. These deals are for travel November 30 – December 14, 2011 and January 4 – February 15, 2012. The deals are in blocks of mileage: 0-450 miles $35, 451 to 1000 miles $65, 1001 to 1500 miles $95, and 1501 plus miles at $125. Follow the links below to their site and click on the button titled Cities and Fares to see the prices from your favorite departure city.

Christmas is about 65 days away, and yes, that may seem like a lot of time, but NOPE it isn't. Time to start planning and crafting and recipe gathering.

Welcome to my mind...
What there is of it anyway. I am a person who is consistent only in the fact that I am consistently changing. I am a happy wife and mother. I have been blessed with an amazing son and an amazing husband. They both are quite generous in their love for me, and they both enjoy me for the oddball I can be. I am rich in my life and my experiences. I am not rich in the wallet, but you can't take it with you anyway...so I'll have nothing to miss. :)
