Blog Invite and Saturday Graduation

Ohhhh...I am so excited!  I got an invite in my email today to host a giveaway on my blog.  YAY! That makes me so happy.  I can't wait to get the details and to post them. 

In other news, my twin sister, Teresa, received her Bachelor of Science in Technical Education and Industry Training today from the University of Central Florida.  I got to watch her on the UCF live stream.  It was so cool!  Congrats, Twinnie!! 

I am heading off to Wal-Mart to do a little shopping.  Here are some of the coupons that I am going to use: 

Head here to print this $0.55/2 Martha White Baking Mixes coupon and to print a new  coupon valid for $0.50/2 Twix Brand Cookie Bar Singles *print these quickly as they will be gone soon! 

 $0.25/1 Betty Crocker Macaroni & Cheese coupon

Have a great Saturday everyone!  :)

MOVE OVER FACEBOOK!!




I am officially over my FB fascination.  When I finally caved in and joined the dark side, (haha), I was pretty clueless about the power of a social network.  I found the minute-by-minute, play-by-play of my friends' lives to be fascinating.  I had no idea that a post such as, "Ate supper. Now Relaxing. Great Day!" would be so interesting! 

Then, the down-side of FB began to appear.  Because you can have a conversation behind your computer screen, and the person cannot see your facial expressions or hear the tone of your voice, it is very easy to mis-interpret what the person is actually trying to convey in their posts.  I would find that some people would get so upset over nothing, all because they misinterpreted what was written.  It crossed my mind this morning that giving up blogging, one year ago, was a long enough break.  It is time for me to leave FB alone and get back to the real world, so to speak.  I NEED to blog.  It's good therapy for me. 

So, I am putting my nose to the grindstone and finding some good things to post on my blog.  Goodies such as great coupons, freebies, nice deals online and in-store, that kind of stuff....the usual for my blog.  I might even throw in a Back-To-Blogging giveaway!!  For now, I'm just "dipping my toes" in the shallow end of the water and getting back into the swing of things.  Then, I'll get brave and just dive on in!

After a year of being away from my blog, there are some kinks that need to be worked out, cobwebs that need to be swept away, and bugs that need to be fixed.  It's time to get my baby up and running and get this show on the road!

Have a great day everyone!!  And, if you want, leave me a comment and let me know how you have been doing since I've been away from bloggy world!  :)
