Discovery Place with Aunt LaLa!

Hannah called up Aunt LaLa on Saturday and wanted her to "go somewhere with her". Laura said yes, of course, and we decided to go to Discovery Place! They had a Circus! Display and then we always love to see the animals/fish. It was super crowded and Hannah was a bit overwhelmed, but we all had a great time! Check out me on the pulley!!! 5 mos pregnant and I can still lift my weight! LOL!

"Peep Show" ....

Look at Mommy!!!!!!! :)


Dress up time!

Touching the sea creatures!

We saw Nemo and Dorie!

Touching the "twister"

Jessie and Hannah....

We have had Jessie, our German shepherd for over 8 years. We brought her in for the harsh temperatures of the winter. Soon she will be demoted again to her pin outside and her warm shed. Hannah is now extremely attached to Jessie (our "German Girl") lol... She has been saying things like "I just love Jessie so MUCH!" "I want to keep her for every day!" "She's so SWEET!" All while lovin and hugging on that patient dog! haha! I have tried to take some more pix of her with her so that she will have some memories to keep forever of her first dog.

How do you save so much money??? MULTIPLE COUPONS!

Well, I have mentioned that is THE place to learn about saving money and using coupons, and more! I now have at least a small stockpile of a variety of items in my house! And I start to panic when it gets low! LOL! :)

Here's why using multiple coupons is an important strategy to saving money: mutiplies the savings for items you buy, lets you build a stockpile, lets you maximize store sales, keeps you from paying full price when you can buy at the best possible price.

Tools to get you there include the Coupon Database at Hotcouponworld:
Use it to search, trade, and manage your own coupon inventory.
Target Generator:
Save paper, ink, and clipping time generating multiples of target instore coupons. Remember, instore coupons can be combined with manufacturer's coupons for additional savings.
