You see we have been working towards some goals for our life story and we are about to embark on an exciting time in our life story. We are in the last stage until we start the search coming January.
Yes you heard me right SEARCH.
We are making our last repairs on our credit (medical..I state because it happened right between medical coverage IT HAPPENS) we are now at the point of recovery and just working on the savings point for the down payment.
We will start the search come January. Why January because it's after the busiest time of the year for us, the FALL. January is our slow time so it will allow us to really focus on what we're looking for. We are in all hopes that we are moving by April to a bigger house with a room for school and siblings for the K man. Yes, we will start that process shortly after we move to a house which will allow for us to adopt our little girls.
K is excited for siblings and he knows we will be moving sometime after Christmas from the house he's lived in for the past 6.5 yrs. A special place yes but just way too small for us and our growing family.
Can't wait to start the search and yes I will be blogging and vloging the process. Will be looking for a starter that we can put our touches on. Mr. Handyman is wanting to fix something for our own house and not just for friends.
Keep watching....Until January not much besides for how things are coming together for January's search.

if you are wondering what you can get me for my birthday this year a gift card from Sephora would be amazing. I need a couple new make-up brushes so I'm not picking little whiskers off my face because mine is shedding.
A new wallet from Coach would be amazing as well. I want one that has a zipper closure would be awesome I think they are called billfolds but I really have no idea.
Love you hun

Photo is missing 1 box of mac and cheese and some red vine licorice
They were out of a couple of things on my list but I still did an amazing job. Would of been a little better of a deal had they had the products in stock. But those deals last all week so I will try again later this week when I am out and about.

I started couponing with just clipping coupons of products that I wanted or needed just at that moment on sale or not. did that for years. About a year ago I started to match coupons with sales but not seriously. 4 months ago I really started to take couponing seriously. Go figured I didn't start this when we dealt with money issues with furloughs with hubs job back in 2008. I started getting serious about it when jobs have improved. oh well I'll be ready if anything happens. My biggest save today is 99% but that is NOT common for me. My excuse is that I live in one of the toughest states to coupon in. Do double couponing here. Can't wait for my fall trip to SC to give doubling a shot. Washington were i use to live even doubles now :o(
in my coupon book i have my coupons sorted by category and in baseball card sheets and in my coupon holder I have my clipped coupons going to be used for each shopping transaction and also my coupons about to expire, online coupon codes.

K had so much fun making shamrocks that he ended up painting for an hour. We did our school lessons for the day.
I then did some house cleaning mainly vacuuming up the small dog our dog leaves behind every time she lays on the rug. Love her but I could do without the fur all over the carpet. K and I we're training miss Bella (our dog) when we say Pillow to go to her pillow and lay down. She's really smart so it wont take her to long to get it. We say Night night and she goes to her night bed. So cute if you ask me.
Made dinner of seasoned potato half's (small) peas and hamburger helper (it's not a normal thing in the house so sorta a treat for me..LOL)
And for dessert we're going to have the cake that K made by himself yesterday. I only helped with the oven and frosting. YUM
super annoyed with someone in the house (Hubby's) not listening to me when I tell him that we don't have any Drano stuff..AHHHH he's still searching. in a way it's funny as I am the one who buys all cleaning supplies and also the one who use the cleaning supplies.
I just sent my little man off to go to his work desk to do his homework so I have some free time to blog and sit down.

Grocery/stock up shopping list
IPod with wires still attached to the laptop even though I’m not charging the pod
old school books waiting for our local homeschool book sale
Photo’s that I need to take to the store to buy frames for so I can finally get them up on the wall (6 months waiting..Opps)
Homeschool book catalog
Change jar for our adoption
the list goes on but this is how the desk looks most the time. I think I need a few shelf's near my work station for home binders and school stuff so I can get to them easily without them taking over my desk. Yes I know I have seen worst but I am a type A personality and this is cluttered to me.
