Random Updates, Via Pics

Hey! Happy weekend!

Just had a few pics I thought I would upload. You know I bought this new laptop a few months ago, but I had never downloaded the Kodak camera software, so I had pics just sitting on the camera. I also had to download a new virus protection. Got a lot done today!

Ok - so first pic is Conrad and I (and some of Blanca) on our first anniversary. This is a self portrait we took on the way to the super yummy Grand Luxe Cafe!

The second pic is just of my new super cute shoes. I got these at Steinmart. They were $35 and I had a $15 off coupon. SCORE for $20 - I will say I am really starting to dig ballet flats and I like the Sam & Libby brand - that's what these are. And yep, I wore them on our anniversary dinner with my pink shirt and my jean capris. Polka dots are the new neutral!

Next and last is the picture of the great shopping deal I got on Thursday. WOO HOO! Don't ever say coupons don't matter. I used to think that coupons were useless because they are for brand names, and if you get the generic, you pay even LESS than the brand name plus coupon. WRONG! You have to clip and wait ... usually it's about three weeks later. You clip, you wait about two-three weeks and suddenly, your brand name stuff is on sale. Example: Kellogg's Raisin Brand is what - $4 a box? and you can get Kroger brand for $2.50 right ....? But if you wait two weeks, Kellogg's Raisin brand goes on sale for $1.99 and you can use your $1 off coupon- BAM! - cereal, BRAND NAME cereal for 99 cents baby! That's what happened on this trip ...
