The Bopsi Twins


Keith and I thought we would be cute and clever at Christmas Eve this year. So following in the foot steps of Aunt Donna and Tiffany ( who used to always match at Christmas eve), Keith and I thought it would be funny for our 1st year there to dress up matching. We had to borrow some blue vests that DD7 and Tiffany wore in years past… some how i wound up with the extra small hahah.

Our Winter Wonderland

Good Savings.

I will admit that i am a coupon Junkie, and i know that as long as there are coupons i will be buying all my goods with them. I am a sucker for good deals and my freezer and pantry are good examples of just how much.

My most recent trip to Publix was one of my best yet.

My cousin, Meagan, who got me hooked on Publix over Kroger featured my latest shopping trip on her blog:

Our 1st Christmas Tree

Keith and I had a delima.

He has always grown up with a Fake christmas tree and I have always had a real one. The only time we ALMOST had a fake one .. my dad was sent back to the store to return this “fake” tree and had to go get us a real tree the next day!

So, when it came to talk of Christmas and what kind of tree we were going to get i was worried. I love the smell and look of real trees. Keith like the ease and simplicity of fake trees. So you can see the dilemma we were having. But Keith being so sweet and loving me lots decided on doing a real tree this year!

Since we are living in Porterdale we are right next to a tree farm. Berry’s Tree Farm ( which is acutally owned some one of Keith’s relatives… you know one of those relatives that you are related SOMEWHERE down the line, but not really sure where.

So last night around 5 we headed down the road to gooood ol Berry’s.


We arrived and it was starting to get dark so we quickly had to find the perfect tree for us.



Berry’s is great because you get to cut the tree down yourself.



we debated on which tree would be right for us!


Keith said “ This is too small”

Then …. after a little bit longer of looking… we found it!


We got straight to chopping… sawing it down!

Once we got home we tried to set the tree up… but we were having issues with our metal tree stand. After 2 hours of trying to get it up we finally decided to go to walmart to get a bigger plastic one… within 2 min of putting the new one of we had the tree up.

If you are needing to save on groceries PLEASE go visit my cousin’s coupon blogging site. Our Bank accounts have been HAPPY ever since i REALLY started couponing. I had always shopped CVS and gotten the great Extra Care Bucks and used clipped coupons at Kroger, but once you learn to “SHOP THE AD” you can see how much you can save.

frosting, cereal, chexmix and frozen veggies

$1.00 or under:

3lbs bag of apples

fruit chillers


pasta noodles

publix hotdogs ( penny item of the week)


i could go on and on and on…. Do your self and your bank account a favor and go to my cousins site ok! It normally takes me about 3 hours a week in getting my coupons ready and going to the store and shopping, but for these savings it is worth the time!!!
