A Great Photo Gift


Looking for a gift for that hard to buy for person? Are you giving on a small budget this Christmas? Right now Vistaprint is offering a free photo flip book. You only have to pay shipping. Rates are as low as $6.01, you are getting a $16 gift for $6 and some change.

Trials

We are a two car family. This is a luxury. Having two cars does make life a little easier. We have a car and an SUV. DH drives the car, the car is our gas saver. We drive it everywhere. The car was bought brand new in 2003. She has been good to us. Well, that is until last Thursday. Coming home she just decided to die while we were driving. I don't know what the heck she was thinking but I'm sure she has her reasons.

DH was able to get us home by two footing it. One foot on the brake the other on the gas. We decided to replace the alternator. So on Friday after DH got off work he went an bought a new one. Fail. That didn't fix the problem. That cost $177 for nothing. Thinking that maybe the alternator went bad and caused the battery to die we charged the battery all night and all day. Once DH got home from work on Saturday he checked on the car. Fail again!

That night we went to eat at my MIL house and to take all the kids trick or treating in her neighborhood. Once we were finished DH went to buy a new battery, hoping the battery was bad. You guessed it another fail. There was $85 down the drain also. This  time we decided that we would take it the a shop. This makes me nervous because I have no idea what it will cost. Today they are suppose to try and fix it.

Do you ever worry about stuff like this? Like how are you going to pay for this or that. I am right now. We have been hit with a lot of unexpected bills lately. I just pray we have enough money in our account to pay for it.

Do You Ever Wonder?

Do you ever wonder if you are doing the right thing? I'm not talking about anything in particular. Just anything. Can you tell them is probably going to be a crummy post? I'm just in a rut, in a mood I guess you could say. Two people that I went to high school with has faced some pretty tough trials. One of them her little girl just 18 months has be diagnosed with cancer. The other his wife just gave birth to a stillborn. It makes more heart ache.

Don't get me wrong I am so very thankful for my healthy family but my heart aches for these two people and their families. I know people go through this everyday but it just plain sucks when it's someone you know. Tinleigh is sick again. She does have more teeth coming in so hopefully that's why she's feeling under the weather.

Ainsleigh is doing great in preschool, she has made a major improvement since this. So very proud of her! We are still in limbo in what to do about DH job. Just keep praying for an answer and hoping some doors will open up. Ok that's all I have to say to sum up my week away. Sorry if you felt like you wasted your time reading this. I promise for next time to be more up beat!

A Reminder

As we embarked on trying to meet our goals. I am constantly reminded that I would love a house with a little more storage space and an open floor plan. While it is easy getting caught up in our wants I am reminded every time I get on the computer with I see the floor plan of the house we have picked out. This is a motivation for us. What's your motivation? Check back next week for an update on our goals.

My Name Is Brooklyn.....

and I have an addiction. Yes, folks an addiction. First off let just say I hope that I don't have the beginning stages of becoming a hoarder. Okay so I'm not that bad.  Anyway my addiction is magazines. The great thing is I don't pay  for any subscriptions but come on people. Stacks and stacks of magazines that are at least a year old. My excuse for holding on to them is because of an article or a craft. Something of a this or that nature.  Well no more excuses at least till I have a big trash party again.


Here is the stack that I tossed. Yes, there are over 20 magazines thankyouverymuch!



Here is the stack that I have keep because I haven't even got to read them. I have them nicely placed in my night stand drawer. Lets see how long it takes for them to take over that space and move on to somewhere else.  Wait, there I go again back to my old ways. I have turned over a new leaf friends and I am hoping it's here to stay.  What's your addiction?

The Bedroom Is Finished

So the other day I talked about getting organized. I decided to take on our bedroom first just because it's the room that gets cleaned the least. It's one of our catch-all rooms you can say. I know once you see these pictures you will never look at me the same. But I will be the first to say that I am not the perfect. It's easy to read a blog and think the author has it all together but I am here to tell ya, I don't. I'm a work in progress and if it takes me posting pictures of my messy unorganized rooms to get myself in gear then let it be. 







Can you tell which side is mine? Ok, really don't answer that. Like I said I'm working on it! :) After a day and a half of much interrupted cleaning I finally got everything together. Then this morning before I left to take Ainsleigh to preschool she decided to spill juice on our comforter. That's why the plain bed if you were wondering.



Next week I will be moving to a different room to organize. I will be posting Tuesday what room I have chosen. I still have 5 rooms and 6 closets to go. Who wants to join me? I would love to see your before and after pictures.

Are You Content?




I would love to say that I was content with everything that we have, but I would be lying. When I walk past someone I wonder to myself are they content with what they have? What is it that they want more of? Advertising makes you feel like you shouldn't be content unless you get what they are selling.


 You can't turn on the television without being bombarded with super expensive car commercials making you think if you are getting a phenomenal deal if you lease this car for just $699 a month. For real? Do people really pay that? I personally like to watch inphomercials sometimes just to hear what they have to say. "You will never use anther product again if you buy this!" That is until the next greatest gadget comes out.

I guess maybe I am content with certain things like, I am content with my house right now. But, I would like to be able to save the money to build. With an open floor plan, nothing fancy. I'm content with my vehicle right now. But, when the time comes that we are ready to have another baby I would like a bigger one. Or maybe, I'm content with my wardrobe right now, but I would like to have a new shirt for that upcoming wedding.

If you are working to meet your goals, are you really content? Probably not. I know I am not content unless I am meeting those goals.  Everyone is always wanting better. But the point is, don't go out and buy something just for the  "status", buy it because yours is old and worn out.   Are you content with what you have? If not, what would you like to change?

Sickness, I Hate The

Gotta love the messy hair look


Hopefully we are on the up swing of things around here. We have been sick for over a week. I myself feel back to myself mostly. Ainsleigh is still battling a runny nose and slight cough. Tinleigh, well she is still struggling.

Monday we were at Riley Children's Hospital for a follow up you can read about that here. Then on Tuesday Ainsleigh had a field trip for preschool so Hubby's sister watcher Tinleigh so I could be with Ainsleigh. Things just seemed to go downhill that day after Tinleigh woke up from her nap. She literally screamed unless I was holding her.

I finally got her to sleep around 10 and called it a night myself, even though I clearly needed to pick up the house and clean something. Then midnight came and she was restless, kept playing with her ears and just fussy. I gave her Tylenol and Motrin and nothing worked. After several attempts trying to lay her in bed at 4:30 I decided to put drops in her ears that we had gotten with she had an ear infection.

Let me tell ya, those are a little piece of heaven. Once they started to work I was able to lay her down and sleep until 7:30 when I was graced with Ainsleigh's face telling me it was time to get up. I called  to make an appointment for Tinleigh  and luckily they got us in in the morning. The Dr looked at her ears and said one looked like an infection was starting, wrote a prescription and told me not to fill it for a couple days and see how she acts.

Today has been an ok day. She has be fussy, but I was able to get the majority of the stuff in the kitchen cleaned up. To me, that is a plus. I have alternated Tylenol and Motrin so I guess we will see how she is after she wakes up from her nap. Let's pray she's feeling better soon!

Great Gift Idea

I know when it come to buying gifts for girls I can usually hit the spot. For boys, notsomuch. This is where my Hubby excels. Every year for Christmas everyone waits in suspense hoping he picked their name.

So if you have a boy to buy for this year, this gift is sure to be a hit. We bought one similar for one of our nephew's birthday. Even the grown ups were fighting for a turn. Right now you can get this mini remote controlled helicopter for $27.25 shipped. The orginal price is $129.95 that's a 79% savings!

Hot Deal!!!

Right now on you can get them for $8.40 shipped when you sign up for Amazon Prime and Subscribe and save. Be sure to enter SEPYUMMY in the Promotional Code box before checking out.

There's Always Next Time

So yesterday I wrote this, hoping that things would change. I prayed Tinleigh would be able to tolerate dairy, a lot. I got an answer, but not what I was looking for. My poor little baby started having a reaction yesterday evening. I guess she finally got enough dairy in her system to trigger it. So needless to say we had an eventful evening trying to get her calmed down to go to sleep.

It just frustrates me so badly that nothing showed up on either of the allergy tests. I wouldn't have put her through any of this. That's the whole reason I haven't tried since the testing was done in July. It makes me feel like a horrible mother. So with all that said. There will be more recipes posted on how we are eating. I know how if feels to have to try and find something to eat without using ingredients that you are so used to using.

To sum this all up, FOOD ALLERGIES SUCK!

We're Trying Again


No wait. May I should rephrase that. No, we are not trying to have another baby right now. But, we are trying to reintroduce dairy in Tinleigh's diet. In July when she went to the allergist and had all of the allergy testing done, dairy did not show up on either test. We were told that we could introduce it to her and see how she did. At the time I just really didn't want to deal with it, I felt she had been through enough.

So, yesterday Ainsleigh wanted a piece of cheese. Usually we don't let her have anything with dairy in it if Tinleigh is awake. I thought we have to try sometime, so I got a  couple pieces of cheese out. Tinleigh scarfed it down. You would have thought she hadn't eaten in months. She loved it and then we waited, and waited and waited. And you know what happened?

Nothing!

Today, I went to the store. As I was walking by the yogurt section I thought maybe she will be able to tolerate this also. So I picked up a couple. Came home, put all the groceries away and pulled out a yogurt. If you could have seen the look on her face when she tasted it. Priceless. I didn't give her the whole container just maybe 9-10 small bites. Once again we waited and waited. As of right now, she has shown no signs of a reaction. We are taking things slow. I pray that she has outgrown it all together. I can deal with the soy and nut allergies. So we are taking baby steps. We go to Riley Children's Hospital on Monday for an appointment. I will update on how things are going next week.  Let's pray it's a good update!

Sorry.....

For the lack of post the past couple of days. We are dealing with sickness in our house. Three out of the four of us are sick, one of those is myself. Luckily Hubby is not sick. He mentioned yesterday when I tried to give him a hug, "Dont' give anything to me, I have a speeding ticket I have to pay for!" So, we are hoping and praying he doesn't come down with it and has to miss any work. I am starting to feel better but the girls are still pretty sick, running fevers, runny noses and all the fun stuff. Thank you for understanding.

Looking For Free?


Here is your chance to purchase some great hoilday gifts for free. You can get each item below for free and pay shipping for each item. If you don't want to pay shipping then purchase $20 of additional products and get free shipping. You could purchase an additional photo calender ($15.99) and an additional photo mouse pad ($8) and you'll end up saving almost as much on shipping as you spend to get all the free items + the 2 extra items. Here is the list of free items:


Oh Georgia

So last week I mentioned our goals for the month of October and on that list included a speeding ticket from our vacation last month. Well, Hubby called about it yesterday and "WOW" is all I really have to say. If you are from Georgia I have pity on you. Here in Indiana if you get a speeding ticket you pay the same amount no matter what speed you go over. That is not the case in Georgia. Make a mental note, "Never speed through Georgia." We had a radar detector that work all fine and dandy, but not so much when you are hit with a laser.

So, this puts alittle damper on our goals this month.That's to say the least! I am just hoping I can pay half of the HOA dues. We have some money in our savings accounts but we need to be pushed to the limits instead of just transferring money and then not putting it back. So this is the month to change that habit. We are changing our ways!

Anyway, I am sure you are wondering how much that bad boy of a speeding ticket is..... Yeah, I'll get to that in a minute. Here in Indiana the ticket would probably be around $200. Just keep that in mind. I think $200 if fair, don't you? OK, are you ready for it? Wait? Wait for it?  Seven hundred dollars! You read me right. Seven hundred smackeroos. Thank you Mr. Georgia Officer!!!!

How I Save Money On Kids Clothes

It's no surprise that buying clothes can really break the bank. I thought when I got pregnant with Tinleigh that I had it made. Ainsleigh and her were both born in June, their birthdays are two days apart to be exact. But, I thought that Tinleigh would be able to wear all Ainsleigh's hand-me-downs. Well that wasn't the case. While Tinleigh did get to wear a lot of the newborn clothes she wasn't growing and gaining the weight that Ainsleigh did at her age.

When Spring came I had to buy her some clothes because she could wear any of Ainsleigh's old clothes. I went straight to Ebay. I know what you are thinking. I know I could get more for my money at yard sales or thrift stores. We have a Goodwill, but it's terrible and I don't  go to yard sales on Saturday mornings because I don't want to cart around the girls. I wouldn't be able to focus, to say the least. Anyway so the beginning of Spring I bid on a lot on Ebay of 50+ items and won. I paid less than $1.50 per item and that includes the shipping. They were all great clothes and I received many compliments on them.


There is 6 months difference in these two pictures. I think the only that has changed is her hair is longer!


Now that Fall is here. In August I  got up in to the attic to see if I could find anything that Tinleigh could wear. It's sad but she is going to be wearing some things that she was wearing last winter. That tells you how much she has grown. So I went on to Ebay and bought her four Gap shirts for $5.50 including shipping. I also bought Ainsleigh a pair of these off Ebay for $19.99. I have no idea why they were that cheap because I found them on Zappos for $52. They are brand new!!!! So I will be keeping my eye out for some more good deals. I just won't be able to buy anything this month. How do you save money on your kid's clothes?

Update on Goals

                                          Money Pictures, Images and Photos

Last week I listed out goals of what we wanted to accomplish. Tomorrow is October 1 and that means the start to working toward our goals. While it may seem like we could do really well this month with getting three pays, it's not that great because with taking our vacation Brian loses a week of pay. Plus we also are stuck with HOA dues and an unexpected speeding ticket that Brian got in Georgia on the way home from vacation. So I don't think we will be making much head way with the Christmas and House fund. Here is what we are working on for October.

Budgeting $100 or less for food a week. This includes food, take out, dog food and household items.

Pay HOA dues $400.00

Pay unexpected speeding ticket (Brian hasn't called yet to find out how much it is)

All left over money goes to pay off an unexpected debt of $1100.00

What are your goals for the month of October?
