Dessert Night!

Dessert Night!

Okay, Friends… After a super long, but blessed week of orders…this was our shopping list for our tonight’s grocery store run. Don’t Judge!

And for those of you who were wondering if we were ever able to check off everything on our To-Do list, I think it is safe to say that we finally have CAKE marked off! This craziness is currently sitting on my counter. I guess that is what I get for sending Patrick and our youngest son to the store. Lol! Now we can check CAKE off of our list for the next 5 years! HAHA!

These babies were $2.00 each! What a DEAL! :)

 

Five Things You Should Know About This Picture ‘We Love Louisiana And Cookie Cake”

Five Things You Should Know About This Picture ‘We Love Louisiana And Cookie Cake”

1. Is this not the most BEAUTIFUL cake you have ever seen!?!? Okay, okay… maybe we are a little partial to it since we were born, raised, and still HAPPILY LIVE in Louisiana. (Can we get a HOLLA from all of our Louisiana followers!) But seriously y’all, how could anyone not love this cake!?!? It has AMAZING icing artwork that is displayed so GLORIOUSLY on the top of a moist, chocolaty, cookie cake! ALL of which, we happen to ADORE!

2. And yes, Patrick and I have been cutting back on sugary treats since we are eating healthier these days. But y’all, we simply could not pass up this fabulous cookie cake that had been marked down to $3.00! Yes, $3.00! WHAT A STEAL! Continue reading

Five Things You Should Know About This Picture… “Screamin’ Sicilian!”

Five Things You Should Know About This Picture… “Screamin’ Sicilian!”

1. For starters, let me clarify….Screamin’ Sicilian is a new brand of PIZZA! So, please do not think that we are in any way making fun of anyone’s ethnicity or heritage. I happen to be Italian, so I would be talking about my own self if I was. 😉

2. We have been wanting to try this particular brand of pizza ever since they first started carrying it at our local grocery store. And the only reason we haven’t is because of the price. It costs a good bit more than other frozen pizzas on the market. And those cost even more than buying the materials and making our own pizzas (As talked about in this previous post). But, if you go to Screamin’ Sicilian’s  website and sign up to receive their offers, they will send you a $1.00 off coupon! Continue reading

“Christmas Cheer In May” What’s In Your Mug/Five Things You Should Know About This Picture

“Christmas Cheer In May” What’s In Your Mug/Five Things You Should Know About This Picture

Happy Sunday Morning, Friends! This morning we are switching things up a bit! I decided to combine 2 of our favorite types of posts into one! Because, there was really no way that I could not tell y’all the behind the scenes of what transpired this morning. So, sit back with a cup of coffee, and enjoy the next few minutes of hilarity that this post will add to your day….

1. This is an over-sized (Can hold at least 4 cups of coffee at a time! AMEN!) Christmas mug that we purchased after Christmas last year at Walmart. I love shopping after season for items simply because this is when they all go on sale, and can be found at hugely reduced prices. This mug must have somehow escaped the after Christmas crowd, and was pushed behind a few plants in the garden center. When we got to the register, it rang up at a whopping…. $0.48! My inner frugal mamma was so happy, I almost kissed the cashier! Continue reading

Five Things You Should Know About This Picture: Break Time!

Five Things You Should Know About This Picture: Break Time!

1.) Yes, this is Patrick and I with our feet propped up on the coffee table. Sorry for the crazy picture, but we had to give y’all a top 5 countdown of our crazy day. And this just so happens to be the place where we sat down and stopped long enough to take a picture. Now, taking a break is quite rare for us. Between our kiddos, housework, errands, and running our business; we are typically going 90 to nothing ALL DAY until we climb into bed at night. But we have to tell y’all….this was a much needed break. Even if it was only for a few minutes. Continue reading

Our $20 End Tables

Our $20 End Tables

How we turned $20 Walmart tables into beautiful nightstands.

We don’t often have the time to refinish too much for ourselves, but our poor nightstands/end tables were begging for help. So, we took a little time at the beginning of January to give them a little makeover….
