Having Fun Blog Hop! + 1

Happy Thursday! Eli is 26 months today! So thought I'd throw in something special today... a new blog hop! "A Mom Having Fun!!" has this one going on... it's for Wednesday, but oh well, I'm a day late. It's actually her 18th one and all ya gotta do is follower her via GFC! Don't you hate those ones that have all those rules?!

Hubs is taking the car to work today, so I have to go walk to pick up Vet, but then again, it's been sprinkling on and off today.... so I might call my grandma to go pick her up. Then I'll probably give Eli some special treatment, maybe put some whip cream on a Graham cracker? She'll get a kick out of that, lol.

I feel in the giving mood! Does anyone love jewelry? Well, I might mention that in every post from now on, so get use to it! I have a raffle going on at my bamboopink fan page (CJR Bamboopink in Texas) go order a ticket within the next 24 hours and get it for 1/2 price! $2.50! OR want to increase your chances &…

CTWW - Dirty?

Change The World Wednesday is hosted by Reduce Footprints, an awesome blog that I came across through the Green Blog Hop and jumped right into the challenge. I plan to participate every week and hope to inspire and spread the word so that others can participate as well. If you participate, just leave a comment on the current challenge and you will get featured on the following weeks challenge. You can learn all about it HERE!

This weeks Challenge:

Many people change their outer clothing daily whether they are dirty or not. Doing laundry often causes extra wear and tear on the material and uses a lot of water and electricity. So this week wear your clothes until they are truly dirty. Yep ... resist the urge to change and wear those duds until they are visibly dirty or they smell.

So what do you think? Can you do it?

Until next time ...



Oh no! I actually learned this from Hubs! He wears the s…

Wordless Wednesday - Be Pink!

Photos from my Bamboopink Launch Party! i rented out a location, but as many people showed up as I thought. Do not book a party during graduation season! But I had a great time and know what to expect next time!

We have great hostess rewards, so let me know if you'd like to host a trunk show, VIRTUAL TOO (thanks to skype & ustream!)


Don't think I need to say much.... what do you think?!

Why the change? Well, I've been wanting to do this for a long while now. I did win a whole re-do back in November I think but it never got done. But I didn't like what they did anyways... I like this one a whole lot better. Didn't take me forever, but it sure felt like it. When I had redesigned my blog last year some time it took me days to get everything the way I wanted. This time it only took me like about 4 hours... not bad, hu?!

I also have some awesome reviews, giveaways, freebies, and events coming up and I wanted my blog to look nice.... so I had some  time this morning!

**** SURPRISE**** ($10-$15 VALUE!)
Leave a comment here (must be a GFC follower) with your thoughts & suggestions on my new design!

Green Tip Tuesday -

Today I wanted to talk about Coupons! I am going to be a Extreme Couponer these last few weeks of May because I only have $40 left in my grocery budget. And I've talked about this before but I always plan my driving! So I want to keep my driving to a minimum because of gas prices as well!

Today was only one trip to the city and while I was out I stopped at CVS to grab water for Vet, she's had a cough ($1.69 - $.75 coupon) and Lady Speed Stick because mama needs some ($2.99 - $2 ECB) AND I used $3 ECB I had from last week, so I only paid like $.94 and got the $2.00 ECB! YAHOOO!

The next "outing" will be Wednesday. Hubs has the day off so he can watch the kiddos while I do my WAG shop and go to the post office. Hoping to keep my food & product total under $20! Wish me luck!

During my outings I also plan on promoting bamboopink which is an additional side job to earn some extra cash! So I will be meeting some friends at the flea market to pass out business cards as …

Menu Plan Monday - Homely

OMG! How much is gas where you live? Here it hovers over $3.79 - $3.89! We haven't hit the $4.00 marks yet but this week, and the past few weeks, I am driving as little as possible. I haven't even gone to the post office. I've already decided I'm only going to take Vetty to Karate class twice this week and I'm hoping to go to WAG (Walgreens), the post office and the flea market! So I hope to stick to the menu plan this week!

Monday:Savory Spinach n Capers Chicken with rigatoni w/garlic bread Tuesday: Spaghetti n Meatballs Wednesday: Datenight with Hubs (before the busy weekend) Use $10 GC at Wallbangers! Thursday: Chicken n Fideo with beans Friday: Breakfast for Dinner.... bacon n eggs

Saturday & Sunday we have a wedding out of town! But hope to save some cash. I have some FREE Kids meals as well as a $25 Gift Certificate to have a nice dinner with Hubs!

This week I'm also planning with what we have... I only have $40 for the rest of the month! I …
