FREE Shutterfly!

Who loves Shutterfly? ME!!!
Who loves Christmas Cards?? I do!!
So, I'm definitely excited about Shutterfly's deal for bloggers.... 50 free Christmas photo cards!
I've always loved Shutterfly and their great quality. A couple years ago, we ordered a photo book for a gift and it turned out perfect. It was so fun and easy to arrange, too.
Shutterfly's Christmas photo cards are very cute. Check them out at http://www.shutterfly.com/cards-stationery/christmas-photo-cards. I love the cute collage cards, like the "With Love" card I pictured above. I also really love "Retro Plaid".
Another great Shutterfly creation is the cute photo desk calendars. They would make wonderful gifts. You can see those at http://www.shutterfly.com/calendars/desk-calendars
I love getting cards at Christmas time- it's such a fun way to here from family and friends that are far away. I love setting up all the cards on the mantle and looking at them throughout the season. But, for those families who are just too busy with all the other Christmas traditions, I like that Shutterfly has equally cute New Year's cards. Here is the link for those: http://www.shutterfly.com/cards-stationery/new-years-cards
Anyway, I'm excited that Shutterfly is doing this awesome deal and I wanted to pass it along in case anyone else wants to take advantage of it!
Have a Happy Thanksgiving!

I'm sorry to be bragging, I'm just so excited! Not only was this stuff only 44 cents, but I also got back $2 in rewards money (to use next time at Ride Aid).

I understand that couponing takes effort and that it's not for everyone's schedules. I'm just glad I'm learning how and can take advantage of it while I'm able to. Although, even when I have another baby and life gets more hectic, I don't think I'll give up Rite Aid. I'm quite a fan!

So far, I'm LOVING my new hobby- couponing. I'm excited to get better and faster at figuring out the deals, but I've already been saving bundles of money.
Here's my Rite Aid deal today:
Sm pack of Pampers (regular price 12.49)
6 pack of Olay body soap (reg. 8.69)
Garnier Fructis Shampoo (reg. 5.49)
EPT double pack pregnancy test (reg. 14.99)
Crest toothpaste (reg. 3.99)
Travel size Secret deodorant (reg 1.29)
Maybelline Great Lash Mascara (reg. 5.19)

All things I can use. Well, not the pregnancy test yet, (I don't want anyone getting any ideas. It's for the future).
What was my total? ................. I paid 13.35 out of pocket and earned $7.00 in up rewards (to go toward my next Rite Aid purchase). $5 of my discount was up reward money I earned last week. So I guess you could say it's like I paid $11.35 for everything.
Considering that I got expensive items like diapers and pregnancy tests, I think I did pretty well. It's pretty exciting to get deals!

Halloween fun!!

What a super fun weekend!! Karter decided to be a Jedi (again), and Ty was super excited to be Dash Incredible. Since we already had both these costumes, I didn't argue.

Friday we went to trick-or-treating on Main street, and Movie night at the school. Karter was excited to win the silliest pumpkin prize for the pumpkin decorating contest.
On Saturday, we did trunk-or-treating and carnival games at the stake center.

Karter's class party! For this he was a ninja.

Karter's field trip to the pumpkin patch.
Ty and I went too. I had been worried that since we were going on the last day, after all the other schools had done their field trips, there wouldn't be many pumpkins left...
...I was wrong!

We loved the hay ride!
What a busy, fun weekend.
Karter enjoyed passing out candy on Sunday just as much as Trick-or-treating.

Ty enjoyed learning all about Halloween from his big brother-
if fact, my favorite was when we were in the car, about to do our first bit of trick-or-treating. I wanted to remind the boys how to be polite. I asked, "what do you say to ask for candy?" They both yelled, "Trick or treat!"
Then I asked, "what do you say after they give you the candy?"
My sweet little Ty-ty shouts out, "Smell my feet!"
