"Frugal is the new BLACK!"

My new favorite saying is, "FRUGAL IS THE NEW BLACK!" I am now officially a "Couponing Mom". I was inspired by my good friends Courtney and Adelle. I cut coupons, do the CVS and Wallgreens thing, and have saved a TON of money the last month while doing so. I am not buying it unless its on sale and I have a coupon for it. Ok well it at least has to be on sale. We have cut way back on eating out, and if we have, its been with a coupon. It is almost addicting! Here's to saving money!

Ty and Linz-Valentine's Day 2009!

I love Valentine's Day. Truly in our marriage, every day is like Valentine's Day in some way, cause we are still pretty sickening in love! I know, I know... Its wonderful though. Guess that's what happens when you marry the man of your dreams. SO, the morning started off with me bringing Tyler breakfast in bed. (Pillsbury biscuits with syrup, I am no Betty Crocker, it was the thought that counted...) Then Ty gave me my "letter". I get one for every holiday/occasion. They always make me cry and crack up. This one was really love-y. He started every sentence with "I love you because," or, "I love that you" etc etc.... so sweet.

That night, we decided to do something we've never done before. Instead of going out to dinner, we took the boys to Grandma Dar's', got all dressed up as if we were going out, looked up our favorite restaurants recipes online, went to the store and spent only $10.00, and came back home for a candlelit dinner and fun presents! We listened to a CD of "our songs" that I had put together for Ty, and we had such a great time!

I gave Ty a bunch of love coupons. He was especially excited about the one that said I'd actually watch a movie with him of his choice! ( I'm not a movie person. I fall asleep. Goes with my A.D.D)
