Weekly Groceries

I was going to stay out of the store this week but...
I just didn't want to, Plain and Simple!!!

I didn't want to be out of bananas, salad, and yellow delicious
apples (even tho we have 4-5 pounds of other kinds!)
Yellow Delicious are my FAVORITE!!

I spent just over $20. at Kroger and
Then $5. at CVS. --( 4 gallon of milk isn't shown in pic.)!
I've been trying to increase my fiber intake and
that involves trying to eat 1 apple, 1 banana, and at least
1-2 servings of green beans, peas, carrots, or salad per day!!

Did you know that Snap peas, the kind you eat the pod,
are packed with fiber?? I didn't, but I also have never tried
them. I bought a pack of frozen to see what I think. If they're
decent, I'm planting a huge row of them and freezing them!
Anyone like snap peas???

By the way -- We rented a tractor/tiller and are out tilling up a
huge 70x40 plot for our new garden this morning!!!! That's going
to be a lot of weeding, but boy will it taste good.
Well, that's assuming it produces!!!!

Have a great weekend!

WOW - Kohl's Clearance!

I love Kohl's Clearance!
I'm getting to the point that I only look at the 90%
off racks. Am I getting too cheap when
the 60-80% racks are too expensive??!!??

I guess it all depends on if you need clothes or
if you are just trying to keep up your wardrobe.....

Anyway here's what we found.
Everything was 90% off except one of the
boys black pairs of shoes in the 2nd picture (80% off). But those
were for Micah who I was planning on going to
Walmart and buying a pair of their $10. shoes!!
These were normally $50. shoes on sale for $9.99
Plus we got 20% off everything! Which made his shoes only $8.

These were my finds!!! I love keeping my wardrobe up for
close to nothing! 2 nice shirts, 1 T-shirt, and 2 pair of shoes.
Normally $209.98
-20% coupon
$16.80 (plus tax)
Oh my goodness -- that sounds crazy!

We found this dress shirt for hubby for $4.00 and
shoes for the boys for $9.99 and $6.49.
Normally -- $154.89
paid - $16.38 (after 20%)

We did buy a few other things that weren't 90% off
so Kohl's still made a little money!!!
I was on a deal high!!
Be sure to check Kohl's for there awesome 90% racks
and don't forget to check the shoe department.
I didn't know that they had those deals in shoes!
I won't forget to check from now on!!

Anyone else have luck with their Kohl's???

Wordless Wednesday -- Crazy Micah - Boy

He makes me laugh...
Maybe He will make you laugh too!!

My crazy 7 yr. old.
He's even gotten the nickname
"CRAZY MICAH-BOY with some of his cousins!
Now you see why!!

In His Word Wednesday - Goodness

Fruits of the Spirit -- Goodness (Good)

Mark 1:15
"The time has come," he said. "The kingdom of God is near.
Repent and believe the good news!"

Mark 10:18
"Why do you call me good?" Jesus answered.
"No one is good -- except God alone.

Ephesians 2:10
For we are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.

What has God been teaching you lately.
Do you have a prayer request?
Do you have a Bible verse that has stuck out to you?
You can just leave your link, words, or prayer request here as a comment. We'd love to know how to pray for you. If you don't want to elaborate just let us know you have an unspoken prayer request. We can still pray for you because God already knows!!

Castle Bath Giveaway -- Repost...

This Giveaway is a repost...
Why you might wonder???

Because Blogger had a bug just before I was to pick
the winner and it ERASED all (but 4) of my comments from the
giveaway all the way back to August of '09'. GRRRRR.
I've tried contacting them (which is nearly impossible) and
I've posted questions on their forum with no help.
It's been well over a month and the problem is still there...

If anyone knows how to restore comments, please let
me know. If I can find a way to restore them, Castle Bath is
generously giving away 1 Bath set for this "new" giveaway and also
one to the original giveaway!!!!

So here is the giveaway again!!!!!
I'm truly sorry for the work you did before and
am still hopeful of restoring those comments...
((if the comments are not restored, I will count the 4 that were
left on the original giveaway here as #1-4.))

I was excited at the opportunity to do a review and giveaway
for Castle Baths Spa Products.
What a refreshing and unique company they are.

Here are some exciting facts about their company...
-- Faith Based

She generously sent me the
Prayer Bath and Body Spa Bath gift Basket with tub.

I loved that it had a Bible verse on the label of each product!
It smelled so good and the body spray left me feeling very soft.

She has so many great Spa gift baskets.
These would make great unique gifts!


She is also willing to give one of you a gift basket of her choice!

Meal Plan Monday

I'm attempting to not go to the store this
week except for milk!

My freezer is down to about 2/3 full, so I'm
still working on it for gardening/fruit season!!

We're finishing the new chicken coop and I think
we're plowing up my new garden this week!!
That's about as exciting as it gets around here!!
And I'll be honest, I can't wait!!

Here's our menu plan for this week..

Monday -- Homemade French Toast, hash browns (?), and smoky links

Tuesday -- Grilled chicken, baked potatoes, green beans, applesauce

Wednesday -- Sausage Grillers, Fruit, and lettuce salad

Thursday -- Meatloaf, cheesy potatoes, beans, applesauce

Friday -- Birthday Party Dinner (Tacos I think!)

Saturday -- Homemade Pizza Night!

Sunday -- Crockpot hamburgers with potatoes and carrots

For more menu plans and
ideas visit here!

When I go through my pictures I always see this cinnamon bread
and I'm determined to make it this week again! It was sooo good,
but the last time I made it was around Christmas time...
I'm hoping this little paragraph will be my reminder!!

You can get as many freebies as you want per transaction with only one $10. additional purchase. ((**You can get a $10. Gift card if you don't need anything right now!**)) Your rebate will come in the form of a Merchandise Check. Which means you must spend it at Menards, (I just use mine for more freebies!)
It's been reported that you do not have to spend the $10. and you will still get your rebate. Since the ad says you're supposed to I still think we should as to not take advantage of the program. You can use your own judgement! Thanks for letting us know!
