Perhaps they are not stars, but rather openings in Heaven where the love of our lost ones pours through and shines down upon us to let us know they are happy. Eskimo proverb

I Hit My WeiGht LosS GoaL..CouPoNinG and HaTs...:)
Good Saturday Morning everyone!! I hope your weekend is off to a great start..ours is a bit cooler and overcast this morning..which I love..we have had some hot weather..okay it was about 80..but that is hot for us washintonians.;)its going to be cooler this week and hopefully today too..been taking Tucky for walks in the morning before the heat gets the best of us..and I have also been doing the treadmill too after our walks.. and it has all paid off..I finally hit my weight loss goal of 92 pounds!!!!! I have been struggling for like 2 months to get the last of it off..and I finally reached it today...I am doing the happy dance..
we've been working in the yard and the fence is done on the one side..still need to do the other 2 sides.but that is the least of our worries right now. Now onto my title post..my little sister is the queen of couponing and saving money..( I wish I lived closer) cause I would be shopping with her all the time..well she calls me up and tells me what are the good deals and to go shopping at my local Rite Aid store...so on thursday I purchased the above (there was also candy) but is in a bowl downstairs)..I spent $29.07 and got $16.00 in ups rewards to spend another day..but I also used my ups rewards from a previous shopping trip earlier in the month and that was also $16.00..so my total was really only $13.07
so yesterday I had $16.00 in ups to use and I had more shopping to do and was going to earn even more UP's rewards..which totalled this time of 32.00 in ups + rebates of 16.00 in a check that I will receive..so this total was $60.21..so my entire total was $89.28 ...but in actuality I only paid $25.28 for all of this..now I have till the end of the month to spend my $32.00..and you can do this every week..do you all have a Rite Aid in your area? I tell you its worth doing..the clorax with coupons were only 1.22 each..the makeup was buy one get one 1/2 off and the fish oil was buy one get one free..everything here minus the fish oil gave me an ups reward to use towards something else..I hope I haven't confused you..I know its still confusing to me when my sister walks me through it..I do love couponing and saving money where I can..and it is such a rush too.;)
well here is what I have been making for the past 2 days....I have made 11 hats..
these are my bomber hats..I still need to put on the buttons on the flaps above the head..but that is it..they are so much fun to make..I did 4 yesterday..they are addicting like the owl hats..
I changed up the trim on them now too..its called the crab stitch..and it adds a nice texture and look to these..I did it on 2 of them..and will continue to do it..I like the way its looks..again if anyone is interested in purchasing my hats please let me know your colors and size you would like..these are infants to adults..well hubby starts his vacation tomorrow..(offically on tuesday) but he is off on sundays and mondays..so he goes back on the 28th..and will still have another week probably in September to use..and use it we will..the fence is done..but we still need to do the other 2 sides..but they are up and the least of our worries right now..we have a shed to "jack" up and put on a lean too for our lawnmower and wood (building wood) supplies etc..so it stays dry this winter..more wood to cut and stack..a chimney to clean, a deck to power wash, sand and stain, a new roof for the shed..and maybe a day to go bumming around..but I am up for the task..its just another form of exercise for me now..and I love it..next friday I have a doctors appt to see about getting my "arm flab" removed..I am very selfconsious (?) about it and want it removed..so hoping to get it done..and with the flab on these gals..I might just lose another pound or 2..so thats my story and I'm sticking to it..I am hoping to go out on the boat today with my friend Michelle and getting "crabs" again and maybe salmon..then we are doing a big seafood fest tonight for dinner..she hasn't gotten ahold of me yet..so will wait and see..have a wonderful weekend and thanks as always for stopping by and saying hi...it always makes my day.:)

God is eagerly waiting for the chance to answer your prayers and fulfill your dreams, just as he always has. But he can't if you don't pray, and he can't if you don't dream. In short, he can't if you don't believe.” ― Jeffrey R. Holland
Hi there, My name is Gina and I live with my hubby of 27 years this new years eve 2012 and 9 cats and one stinky puppy..I have been crafting for about 25 years on and off...I can't remember how I came across the primitives, but I love them... Love the time worn look and the loved look...Sometimes I think I was born a hundred years too late..although I do love modern conveniences...like having my outhouse in my house if you know what I mean.. I love to decorate, it just tickles me to organize...any way, drop me a line. I love hearing from you all. Thanks for stopping by...:)
Weep not for me though I am gone, Into that gentle night. Grieve if you will, but not for long, Upon my soul's sweet flight. I am at peace, my soul's at rest, There is no need for tears. For with your love I was so blessed For all those many years. There is no pain, I suffer not, The fear now all is gone. Put now these things out of your thoughts, In your memory I live on. Remember not my fight for breath, Remember not the strife, Please do not dwell upon my death, But celebrate my life. Author Constance Jenkins
