Here is my deals that I got from Giant-thanks to my friend Shannon-who so cheerfully shared the details of some sweet deals with coupons: I got $76.58 dollars worth of merchandise for $21.72-pretty good-not much to whistle dixie at but it is okay and I am thankful!! With the prices rising slowly and yet quickly at times I think it was okay job on getting some deals. I did get a few things I've been wanting to get though like the Keedem Tea cookies they were on sale 3 for $1.00 those cookies are so good-and now is a good time to get your Hebrew/Jewish favorites:O) because the New Year is coming there will be sales on the Jewish foods. I also got-which I forgot to put in the picture-a box of matzo crackers-sooo yummy!!! I also spoiled myself with some Heath Chocolate Chips-can't wait to use them-might try my hand at a mock of the Wendy's Toffee Coffee Twisted Frosty. Noodles-we always can use them. The cheese was definately a special treat!! Of course many a folk don't like the name of the brand,but that is because they say it wrong! It is called He Luv A Good.....so therefore since I say it right-I am allowed to buy it ; ) Oh the plastic cups were on clearance 300 cups for $2.48-great price!!
The Chi-chi's salsa had a deal that if you bought two containers you got two dollars off of Giant brand chicken..so I paid $1.47 for six chicken leg Quarters-not bad...I also had a dollar off of the Chi-chi's salsa. All in all it went okay-I even had Boy Wonder with me!! He did okay but you know how he is-gets board pretty quick.
I finished the school shopping too-now I have a Calendar for planning my classes and for Caleb's things too. Well, my project isn't gonna get finished unless I get off of here...and there are a few other things that need attending too-If I seem like I am missing in the action-it is because I am trying to organize our life right now-and I have a lot on my plate..and each min is crucial to life it's self. Somewhat I am looking forward to next week being the last week of the competition over ar Made by Heidi's-I proved that I have what it takes to myself and to others-I can walk away smiling whether I get first place or last..it doesn't matter-through this I found many a true friend and a few new ones. I can clearly say that "I'm Made for Competition!!" And your support through it all is so marvelous-even you who are following me secretly undercover ; )
Oh the other news is that I got asked to join a blog roll on another site!! Kinda makes me feel a little special...we always can use a little I feel special boost. I am honored!
I hope that while I am "missing" that you'll miss me;) hehehe-just kidding-praying for all of you who are out there-the ones I know and the ones that I don't know and those in secrect undercover ; )
Hubby bought me a Stippling Foot for my sewing machine!!!!I am so excited!!! I can't wait to use it-well,after things start settling down-I can't wait.....eeeee!
OOOO-I also found a dilly of a deal at Joann's-instead of doing ruffles by hand..they have the proper sewing foot for my machine and it will do the ruffles for me:) BIG BIG BIG GRIN-can't wait to pick up the Ruffler Foot!!!I am gonna try to get it Labor Day weekend when they have 40%off and 10% off:) it is only $14.99-not to bad a price!!!! If I can talk hubby into stopping by Joanns:)
Tomorrow we are going to Longwood Gardens for a family outing-can't wait to take some pictures:) It will be nice.
Still two more projects for the competition-I am gonna try to finish my one for this week today or Saturday. Then one more week-and then break!!! My dear friends and family are doing so well at voting!!! I didn't exactly expect such a turn out of votes-just goes to show how many friend you have:)
Oh- I got the job as Music Teacher at Woodlyn Christian School. So I am in charge of the Elem. grades and I will be helping with the Middle and High School classes. I am humbled-because I am nervous-but God wouldn't lead me where His grace can't keep me. I also will be the pianist for the opening chapel on Mondays-and might be doing flute lessons!!! Busy busy busy-add all that to being a full time wife(going on 7 years), mom( 5 years), Assistant Pastor's Wife(going on 7 years), Church Pianist( going on 2 years), Seamstress(?years), Flautist(for 19 years!!) etc.....the list goes on and on.
I am really amazed at the opportunities that the Lord has given to me in the past few months-it almost makes me feel like I have grown so much Spiritually. I have had so many folks older than me to ask my counsel and guidance-as well as a few that are younger. I give counsel bathed in prayer for sure-I want the wisdom to be God's wisdom given in due season.
All in all the Lord is just so good to us!!! No matter how many things we don't have-he has given us more than what we deserve let alone need. I love the Lord with all of my heart-he is a true Best Friend to me!!
Just remember even if your prayers are not what you are asking for-God still answers every single one of them whether it be yes or no or wait.
I know I know; "where is the project you just did last week"?! Things have been just crazy around here!!! But be sure to stay tuned cuz I do have some more things to post-for right now though-my house needs a little TLC as well as my wonderful family:) Voting goes up tommorrow 8-23-2010 around 8:00a.m. Don't forget to get your vote in:) Remember: EVERY SINGLE VOTE DOES COUNT!!!!:)
