Fabulous Mami Friday - Mom's Nite Out

Yeah! Welcome to my new weekly series! I am so excited because this is actually a "secret" resolution for the year, not just for me, but for my husband. I, myself, DO NOT feel like the most beautiful woman/wife/mother. But it's hard to believe when you don't believe it yourself.

So in this "series" each week I will focus on one part of the body/feature and share what I think about it, how I can make myself feel better about it, do something about it by posting how-to's or tutorials, my favorite fashion pin from Pinterest that week. Follow "My Style" on Pinterest if you're a big girl.

I hope ya'll enjoy it and share your insecurities or what you love about your body as well. If you're interested, check out this artile I read on

Love this photo!

Week 4: YOU! Good Morning! Happy Friday.... did you know I've been featured in many books and magazines? All about being a mom. Being a mom surpasses all other job…

HEB Unadvertised Deals, 5/1

I will have the NEW HEB yellow coupons that I found first, followed by the Old Unadvertisded deals that are still valid. Then I will post the clearance found at my store (Feel free to like my Faceboook Page and post any deals/clearance that you find at your local store!). At the very bottom I will occasionally post pics or a list of what tearpads/peelies/blinkies that I found at my store!
Like always deals/prices vary by location. I am in the deep south Texas area (RGV)and prices are off by pennies even in the RGV region, so please check your local store if you are out of the RGV.  Coupon Lingo:

HEB Weekly Deals, 5/1 - 5/7

Welcome to another week of Coupon Match-ups for HEB! I will share the best deals that I know of and be sure to be a fan of my Facebook Page because if I hear of any deals then I will update this post and post it on my FB page! I don't post every single deal but you can just pick up your local ad or view it on, But I just also wanted to add that with the new Coupon Policy I will no longer be posting Health and Beauty deals unless I know the prices, and it's a good deal!

Here is the link to the Weekly Ad. Here is the link to H-E-Bs Coupon Policy.

*Updated Coupon Policy* The HEB Coupon Policy has changed (January 29th). The main thing everyone is concerned about is that HEB will no longer allow stacking. But I am more interested to see how the digital coupons will work. They say it will save us more money... but no one seems to know. I will keep ya'll updated.... SEE MY RANT HERE!

Green Tip Tuesday - Recycled Post

Todays "Green" Tip is RECYCLED! Check out this post from 2011!  USE SUN-LIGHT!

This morning I woke up and went to hang some laundry outside and it was georgous weather. There was a nice breeze, the sun was just coming up and... just beautiful. I'm sure you can imagine it. Both my hubby and I love to open the windows a few times a week and let the sunshine come in. Our house isn't facing the sun but we still get some light that comes in..... Read more HERE.

I thought about this because the past few day is has been rainy and even some flooding. Last night hubby wanted to eat some BBQ, so we drove down the street to a local place and we sat in their patio. It was so fresh and comfy. I thought I would re-share this post. When we came home, we turned off the AC and opened the windows to bring in the fresh air.

A Guide to Online Grocery Shopping *Guest Post*

Morning! Who loves shopping?! How about Grocery Shopping? I do, I do! Honestly, it keeps me sane. I just love walking through the store and finding a great deal.
