Money Savin' Momma...Or not??

So you remember the blog I did a few weeks ago on how I have an obsession with dinner ware sets (plates, bowls, mugs, etc)? One of those sets that I had a picture of were the giraffe prints from target's line. I went to pick up a few items the other afternoon and they had a whole section of items that were 50% off!! What about that? I love target. Simply love love love it.

I feel like I'm a money savin momma! =) haha.
I figured they could go either as cow prints or giraffe print? What do ya'll think?

We have a boutique in our town that is also closing down. To be honest, I've seen this coming for a while now. No offense to them what-so-ever because I loved their items and they are sweet (but always get my name wrong but can know Charli Beth out of a crowed of people) But they were a little on the high side for this town. The rumor spread like wild fire today and come to find out it was true ( I did go see for myself) and everything is 50-80% off. Here is a list of what I got:

A blue Smocked dress: regular $44.00
50% off

Purple Duffel bag:$26.50
50% off

2 preemie cow outfits: $15.00 each

Pink Swing top Dress $28.95

Pink striped pants that match $24.00
50% off

Brown Dress w/ multi colored flowers $48.95

Spring Large Diaper Bag $36.00

I wanted to let you all know (esp. if you live in or near my county) that our Sheriffs office is having an awareness program on Meth. This class is to be held Thursday, February 19, at 6 until 8pm.Topics will include: signs of a meth lab, how meth impacts you, and the dangers of the drug.Everyone involved in this program includes the following ACSO, SPD, AC Drug Task Force, and the Kentucky State Police. The Kentucky State Police will be bringing a "simulated meth lab" trailer for viewing. There will be a power point presentation including photos and videos of meth labs, discussions with officers from the front lines, and questions from the audience. Also, if you are a member of a fire department in our county you will be given state fire hours for attending this seminar.

(I know Tuesday tribute's are not suppose to be about you...so I'm going to pause for a sec) Meth is a horrible horrible drug that has impacted my life is such awful ways. A lot of you know that I am a single Mother due to this drug and the effect it had on my "first love." I had no idea whenever I first met him that he was doing drugs, how awful that the drugs had made him, how long he had been doing them/selling them, and how he would turn out to be and the things he would do to me. I was simply clueless. I didn't know what to look for. I won't go into discussion about these things because I don't feel that it is the time or the place to do so. No matter how good of a person that you are or you think someone is, this drug can ruin and change a person within the first time they "try" this drug.

Anyways, Charli Beth is feeling much better! So yay to that. We did go to the doctor yesterday because her temperature was still continuing to go up but she did test negative for the flu and her white blood count was normal. Major blessings! There were several other children in the waiting room with the flu and rsv, so I was very happy to hear our news.

& Just to make you think...

WOW. That last list made me REALLY think! It breaks my heart to be honest with you. And what is even worse than that is the fact that most of those kids have no one who really care. I SO wish I lived in your town, becasue then Id be your date to the awareness day. Maybe then we can scope out our Prince Charmings!! haha

Story of Mommy

My photo
I am a sinner saved by the grace of God. A wife to the 5oh, and Mother to Charli Beth and Bryar. This is my story of Motherhood, life experiences and sometimes even my overwhelming heart all typed out. I believe in second chances, yet the firm hand of parenting. That sweet tea is of the comfort food category. Chickens belong in every backyard. Children should each have a responsibility of their own while helping take care of duties in the home. Sports are a must for our family, and we spend many nights on courts or fields. We consistently feel new to each of the experiences that are brought into our lives. But we are always excited for the journey in which God has given us.
