Looking forward to Black Friday!

I just checked out Target's online 2-day sale ad. I saw that the Leapster games will all be $15 each! That is a steal for those. They had pictures of "Up" and "Tinker Bell" for the leapster son would love those. He still loves his leapster after having it for nearly 2 years now. It is the one toy that hasn't got old with him! Educational too.

I will also be doing regular shopping and not concern myself with sales, just getting what I am after and hope it isn't sold out...if it son is young and it doesn't matter at his age.

Happy Shopping!

Happy Thanksgiving Tomorrow! Enjoy your Turkey and Dressing!

I can't believe how close Thanksgiving and Black Friday is!!!

I am of course...very excited about having Turkey at Mom's house...the best meal of the year! She loves to cook for Thanksgiving and we love to eat! :-)

I wanted to write this post to say...instead of Blogging about Black Friday this year...I am planning to be out in it. I am so excited. My husband's new job has allowed him to be home the day after Thanksgiving (aka: Black Friday). The last couple of years, I just didn't want to get up that early and take my son...too young or not young enough (a bit easier when they are still in a carrier and roll in a stroller). So my friend and I are going to take full advantage this Friday and get out and about. I am not worried if I find a deal or not. I am just simply excited to get out and about and see the crowds. I love it! I would love to stumble upon a few things for my son this year and save money...if not...that is cool too....have to buy a few things one way or another.

Have an enjoyable short week (I hope for you all) and Thanksgiving and Black Friday Shopping!

Black Friday for those who may not know comes from the stores who are usually in the "red" (ink) (doing poorly on sales) this time of year...change to black ink meaning Profit...all on this Black Friday day (day after Thanksgiving). No idea the history of how it started, but it is fun to be a part of!

It's a Girl!

Sorry this is delayed...

We found out Wednesday that the baby is a GIRL! :-)

We are all excited! One of each...very perfect for us I would say.

Now to the tough task of naming her...this is going to be a tough one.

A Dreary Day outside, But Excited about today!

Today we find out if we are having a boy or a girl! I am getting excited about the visit. I have two hours before I leave for the doctor's office to find out.

We just pray for a happy, healthy, boy or girl. If we had to choose...we would say girl because we have a boy and it would be cool to have one of each...with this being the last one and everything.
If it is a boy...great...we have everything and my son gets a brother!
If it is a sis has all the girl stuff and my son gets a sister!
A win win I must say!

I will do another post today or tomorrow to let you all know which it is! Any guesses out there?
My first is a boy and he is 4 years old! Hmmmmmm....

45 Days til Christmas!

What are you doing to get ready this year?

I have purchased two gifts and several for my son already. Very proud of myself. I have made and listed ornaments in my etsy store to make money and get in the Holiday spirit early. So far I have sold 7-9 of the ornaments (I didn't do a final count). Every little bit helps.

Speaking of Holidays...
I hope everyone has a terrific Veteran's day tomorrow.
I also hope everyone is getting excited about Thanksgiving!

Have a great week everyone!
Tomorrow we find out "boy or girl!"
What do you think? boy or girl?

November already?

I am in disbelief at the rapid pace that this year has went by.

I am 20 weeks this week! Officially five months now! Half way there! Sorry for all the exclamation points...just showing some enthusiasm here. :-)

Trying to figure out some ways to save extra money for the new baby coming in March. Have tried to start selling on Etsy again after having taken a long break from it all. I felt really bad the first three plus months of this pregnancy. With my son...I don't remember feeling that bad. The good news is ...that stage has seemed to pass and I have moved on to the more energy and healthier appetite stage. (My favorite stage.)

We are hoping to insulate our garage and believe that will help with heating and cooling the room above which is our all important hobby room. Where we do our creating. My husband draws and lately, my thing is macrame and crochet. My son loves to paint! We are an always busy bunch.

Have a lovely Friday!
