I have always been all into the coupons since I have worked at CVS and have seen first hand how much money you can save using coupons. At CVS it really only helps you with cleaning and beauty products. (I have like 47 thousand razors hahah)

My Cousin Meagan has just recently started a new blog (which is awesome)

You can check it out here :


Now, All Georgians are about the think i am crazy and I thought it was crazy a few weeks ago but… Publix is the place to shop for couponing deals. I have always been a stickler to Kroger since Publix always had much higher prices on items.  My cousins pictures week to week of her deals made me actually try to give Publix a chance. With coupons you can get deals like mine from this week below:


The List of items:

2: Wise Cheese Doodles

2: Stacy’s Pita Chips

2: Shark bites gummies

2: 8 o’clock coffees

2: Healthy Harvest Rotini pasta

2: Contessa Frozen Meals ( Mongolian beef and shrimp jambalaya)

2: Toasters Strudels

6: Old El Paso Taco Mix

2: Coffee Mate Liquid Creamer

2: Hillshire farms smoked Sausage

1:Publix Diet Coke ( No saving just wanted it!)


Total Before Sales and Coupons: $67.55
Total saved from sales: $29.30
Store coupons used: $9.50
Manufacturer /Competitor coupons used: $16.68
Total amount saved: $55.48
Total paid after all sales and coupons: $12.07

Yes my friends.. you read correctly. I paid $12.07 for all those goodies up top. AND the Stacy’s pita chips were COMPLETELY FREE, while other items were also close to free as well!

If you are ready to start saving on groceries as well as at other stores please check out Meagans blog. It is neatly organized and easy to read and understand. If you are new to the blogging world / couponing world she will help you save a ton.

I was so excited about my shopping trip I had to let everyone know ASAP!!!!! Thanks Meg for opening my eyes!!!!

imageI just noticed that i never posted about my graduation back in May. The wedding took over most our blog posts, so i thought since we have been slacking in our postings lately i would update from that day.

I am actually the 1st on my Grandmothers side to graduate from College. Which is actually really cool.

DSC09423 It was actually a really nice day in the Sanford Stadium. There was cloud cover all morning so we didn’t burn up the whole time. It did get long towards the end and i kept getting text from my sibings asking “WHEN WILL THIS BE OVER”



My dad was extra excited because he graduated from UGA as well as his two sisters. We have a family of bulldog alums on the Sears side of the family. I love my parents sporting their red and black!

Journey Baptisms


This past Sunday we had a Fall Festival at our church. The niht included great home cooking, fun games ( including BINGO and a cake walk) and face painting and balloon animals ( by yours truly). Keith also dj’d the event. 









The main even of the night however was the baptisms. 12 people decided to be baptized. 8 were this past Sunday and 4 will be tomorrow at church. Keith had the opportunity to Baptize 6 of the students in his youth group. 4 of them had given their life to Christ in the past and were ready to show the church friends and family their commitment to Christ. 2 of them gave their lives to Christ this summer at camp.

Chad made us a baptismal since the floods of 09’ moved our party inside of Journey instead of outside at the lake. Chad is so crafty!


It was such a blessing to get to watch Keith baptize his youth. He had great words of encouragement for each of them. Pray for these students as they continue to strengthen their walk with the Lord over the up coming year, and through the rest of their lives.
