Loving my new couponing experience!

Well, thanks to Cherissa's website along with a few others, I have saved so much money this week!
I got the kids a TAG reading system for Christmas (reg. $49, marked down to $24 plus a $10 off coupon) for $14! I also got 2 Kids Boost nutritional drinks from Target for free with my coupons, along with 2 Glade sense and spray starter pack for $1 each with the coupons and in store sale... Plus many other items I have gotten for very cheap!

I am loving it. Why haven't I done this before?? Probably bc I didn't want to take the time to do so and I don't like the cashiers giving me dirty looks when my bill is $20 and I hand them coupons bringing it down to $7! BUt oh well... Saving that much money is well worth it and my husband is loving the "frugal" me. :)

Hope everyone is having a good week!

Choosing a middle name...

Long time, no post! Sorry about that, I have been busy!

We are about to take a 10 day vacation to Idaho and Yellowstone July 18th with Dan's parents and I can't wait to get up there! We have plans to go white water rafting, go to an old mining town in the mountains, maybe go to some hotsprings and Dan will probably do a day hike with my dad in the mountains. Plus I get to see my Dad and his wife along with my wonderful friends who I am really missing. I can't wait.

On another note, if you didn't know yet, we are having a little girl in November and have a name picked out but it is a secret until she is born. :) But, we are having a hard time coming up with a middle name so I wanted to see what you all thought about a few middle names. I'm sure some of them may sound silly to you, but we are wanting something a little more unusual. So here goes, tell me what you think!


That's what we have so far to think about... Feel free to comment me :)

A Post to Remember...

Well, We are back from our vacation to the Carribean. We had a great time! Although I am glad to be off a moving boat, that's for sure. First off, we went to Jamaica and just went shopping and laid on the beach. The beach was so beautiful and the water and so clear. Then we went to Grand Cayman, which was so very pretty! We got to go to Hell, Swam with a Dolphin and went snorkeling at Cemetery Reef. We got to see a couple sting rays swimming right under us. It was amazing.
Then finally we Went to Cozumel. We took the Ferry over to Playa Del Carmen and took a Collectivo to Tulum where the Mayan ruins are. The Ruins are set on a cliff looking over the Aqua colored ocean and it could not have been more beautiful. Here are a few pics from the trip:

** In other News, we found out a few weeks ago we are expecting our third and final child. I'm 6 weeks along and due in November. :)
I have been sick for the last two weeks so pray that this passes soon!

Our first post!

How exciting! We have found a new place to chat and share our daily life. I have missed posting a blog everyday.

Dan and I started a new church about 6 months ago are we absolutely love it. We love our church. We go to and welcome anyone to come with us! Lifechurch has actually been changing our lives in more ways than we could imagine. Our Marriage has never been so strong nor has our lives ever been more moved. We finally found where we believe God has called us to be.
Our kids love it there and they love making new friends each week as our campus continues to grow.
Dan serves on the tear-down crew ( as this is a portable campus at Barnes Elem in Owasso) and I serve in the baby room each week during our first service.
God has really shown himself more to Dan and I here in the last few months than we thought possible in such a short time at a new church. The next few sermons are on marriage and if anyone wants to come check it out let me know!

Grace and Max are getting so big now. Grace is in the Pre-K program at Owasso and Max just got enrolled and will be starting the Pre-K program in August. By then, Grace will be in Kindergarten! I can't believe how fast time is going by. It seems like they were just babies.
They are still kids though and get into everything they can. Luckily Grace is starting to grow out of it and become more of a little girl. Especially since she has friends at school who come over to play she acts much more grown up. Here are a few pictures of the kiddos...

More pics of the kids to come :)

Dan and I have also been very blessed and are going on a cruise to the Carribean March 1st! We are going to Cozumel, Grand Cayman and Montego Bay. Neither of us have been on a cruise so we cannot wait. It will be our first vacation in a little over a year. It's very much needed. Pray that we have safe travels and that our kids are obiedient and safe while we are gone.
