I'm back..............

Hello friends!  I said I was going to get better at posting and here I am slipping again.  I am serious this time, a new post everyday.  I really want to start a home business.  I have tried making hair bows and selling candles and while that was fun, they never really took off.  I have now started using my Cricut machine and making plaques and stuff.  How many people would be interested in buy stuff like that?  I see alot of that stuff on Etsy, but do people really buy that stuff?  Since I got my Cricut machine, I have vinyled (sp) up the whole house.  I love it and it is such a stress reliever.  Can ya'll give me some input on if you think this is a good business venture.  I am not looking to make millions, although that would be awesome........but a little extra income would be nice.

How is everyone else doing?

in a funk.......

Have you ever had one of those days or months that you knew in your heart that you were loved, but just didn't feel it.  I mean, I have great, wonderful friends and family, but I am seriously in a funk today.  I want these court issues to go away.  How can I be the villain for telling the truth and standing up for my child?  Today would be a great day to just go to bed and sleep, but I am a mommy and us mommies can't do that!  I love my girls and I am determined to not let on like anything is wrong, it is not fair to them.  I just pray the truth will prevail!!!! 

Okay, so enough with feeling sorry for myself.  My youngest, Estella, has started punching.  She has punched her sister in the face numerous times and she punched me in the face at Michael's.  O M G!!!!!!  She said some little boy name Jacob does it at school, hmmmmm.  How do I deal with this?  Do I spank her and say no hitting or punching?  Oh the joys of parenting...............

Sorry I have been MIA....

Hello everyone!  It has been awhile since I last posted.  I don't want to get into the personal specifics of it, but it just has been a really stressful month for my family.  I really think that I should go around to high schools and colleges and well every woman I see and tell of the ramifications of Bud-Light, going through and divorce, and hooking up with the rebound idiot because I am now stuck with this idiot forever, as he is my oldest daughter's sperm donor and now I have to deal with him until she is 18, ughhhhhh.  Put I have been living with the quote that this too shall pass.  I am trying to keep my Christian nature,  but lets just say a couple of days ago this southern girl went well southern on him.  So dear, awesome followers, please keep me and my family in your prayers that this situation will pass quickly and that the truth will prevail!!!!!!

I'm exhausted!!

Today I was a substitute teacher for my youngest, Estella's, 3 year old class at school.  For the most part, the day was good, but there were a few naughty little ones and one of them was Estella!  I think that she was just out of sorts because I was there.  She ended up throwing a cupcake and a jug of red juice across the room, ummm NICE.  She usually does not act like this at school, but since mommy was there she decided to let it all hang out today.  I really have a new admiration for teachers because man, they go through alot to teach our rugrats daily!

So how are my awesome bloggers today?  I am going to crash early tonight, seriously.  Please keep reading because exciting things are coming to my blog, YAY!!!!!

My very first review of a product....

I am so excited!  I won some beauty products from Zagora.  She is on facebook as Zagora and also on etsy as  I have to say that these products are awesome!  They are all natural and feel amazing to your skin.  She sent me an exfoliating salt scrub, lip balm, and eye cream.  Let me just say that I will definitely be ordering more of the salt scrub.  It has such a nice smell and really makes your skin feel amazing.  The lip balm is really great too.  It has a great smell and taste too, lol.  I also like the eye cream.  If anyone is in need of some beauty products, please give Angela at Zagora a try! 

How is everyone today?  Today has been a very productive day.  Let me just say that I am ready for Thursday and you know what they say.....Hell hath no fury.......

Let me also ask you a question.  Does your kids run through the house like little banshees?  I mean, seriously, where do they get this energy from?  Also, my oldest is the most destructive kid ever!  She tore her curtains down and rips the covers off her bed.  I seriously am at a loss as to how to restore some order and organization to my house.  Should I give up on this until they move out?  The youngest is not so bad, but man, my oldest is going to be a demolition woman when she grows up!

Anyway, I hope everyone is having a fabulous day!

God does not put on you what you can't handle...

I am clinging to this saying right now, lol.  Let me just say that I seriously cannot believe the nerve of some people.  I really don't know how some people can lay their heads down at night and sleep without fear of the boogie man getting them.  I really try to be a good, awesome person and I don't understand how someone can be so, for lack of a better word, evil.  All I have to say is that karma will get you if the boogie man don't get you first ;-)    This too shall pass..........Prayers would be lovely at this time so if anyone is a prayer warrior, please keep my situation in your prayers.

Okay, now that I got this off of my chest, lets get back to awesomeness.  How was everyone's weekend?  We had a good Sunday.  We went to church and had lunch and I got to take a 3 hour nap, woohoo!  Although Saturday sucked, Sunday was good.   I still had only had one candle sale, pitiful I know, but what can a girl do when she does not know that many people around here.  I made these awesome little business cards and I am going to post them at the PX community bulletin board so hopefully that will help.  I am still couponing, but have not got the hang of getting stuff for free.  I mentally do the calculations in my head as I am shopping, but I have yet to have my total come to under 10.00.  I figure this too is a learning process and practice makes perfect.

Talk to all of you awesome people later!  Sunday night football is on and Dallas is playing!!

Hello to all my new awesome bloggers!

I am so excited that I have new bloggers to chat with!  Here is my very fist referral to another awesome girl's blog.  She is having some really great giveaways!

I had a yard sale today and made 45.00, not bad for 2 hours of work.  I am really excited about my new candle business, if I could just continue selling.  Any help from my fellow bloggers is greatly appreciated!  Coupon Mamacita has already been so helpful and I am so grateful for all of her help!

Everyone have a fabulous day!!

Saturday Stalk for Savings

Hello!  I am now apart of the Saturday Stalk for Savings.  This is such a cool idea.  I look forward to meeting everyone!

Just Married with Coupons

My very first sale....

So as I said in my previous post, I started selling Gold Canyon candles.  I got my kit in the other day and I have to say that I was shocked at how awesome these candles smell!!  Me and my kids spent a few hours just smelling the samples.  This is Estella's new thing, to smell candles, lol.  I made my first sale last night!  I am so excited.  I have to admit that I am worried that I will not be able to get my name out there and be the ultimate candle seller, but I think that I am just psyching myself out.  I made my business cards today and I am going to hand them out at my yard sale tomorrow. 

Until next time....

So, I have been slacking.....

on the blog.  I am so ADD, seriously. 

The girls are in school and are doing great.  I am in school and trying to get through Statistics, urghhhh.  I have also started selling Gold Canyon Candles.  We shall see how this endeavor turns out.  

So that is all for now, rather sad, isn't it.

First off, thanks Jennie for being my one and only friend on here, although somehow I friended myself, which is kinda sad and rather lonely, but I digress.....

So If anyone ever decides to actually follow this blog I will keep on posting daily rants.

Today was my very first trip to Rite-Aid using my Wellness Card and coupons.  I think I did rather well.  I spent 35.00 and saved 33.00 plus got 9.00 Rite Aid bucks to use later.  I figure I did well.  I am well stocked up on Kleenex and Stay-Free (sorry for any guys reading this).  I also got free toothpaste, like seriously, FREE!!  Hmmm, maybe this coupon thing will work out after all and my ADD will not kick in and I push this to the side like I usually do everything else. We shall see............

My very first post!!

So I decided to jump on the blog train. I have no idea what this blog will be about. I have just started being a militant coupon user so I am sure I will post my adventures with that. I am also an entertainment nerd, so I am sure I will be sharing some of the entertainment news going on. I am also a Fox News junkie so that will be fun to get into some great debates with people. Most importantly, I have two girls, Maggie who is 4 and Estella who is 2. I think they are secretly trying to drive me to the crazy house. I figure I will just post whatever adventures I have to try to make someone else laugh at my slow ride on the crazy train.
