Winner Winner Chicken Dinner!

Ok, I actually didn’t win anything, I just felt like saying that.  I do feel like I’ve one something though!

Remember the shoe fiasco with Alivia last month? 

8521-730555-pThe last day of school before Christmas break we went back to the shoe store, and found the Merrell’s on sale for $30.00.  I snatched them up, but wasn’t going to let her wear them right away.  Shawn asked me if she could wear them to school today, and I of course said NO WAY!  I wanted him to call the bus garage one more time, just in case they showed up over Christmas break.  He was totally pissy about it and didn’t see the point, but did agree to do it.

Well, Lo and Behold, they found the shoe!  I’m excited because that’s 30 bucks back in my pocket, and Alivia’s thrilled that she doesn’t have to stack wood with Grandpa to earn the money for the shoes!  However, I’d be lying if I didn’t say I’m a little concerned as to what condition the shoe will be in when she gets it back tomorrow.

My next stroke of luck today came with my Bosu Ball.bosu2I have been using the Bosu ball at the gym for months and really wanted my own for home.  Well, that is, until I found out they were $100!  I thought that was a little extravagant, even for me:)  Lucky me, I got a few Target gift cards for Christmas, and I saw the ball on their website, so I had planned on ordering one.  I’m glad I didn’t though, because it was in their ad this week for $99 and you got a free $20 Target gift card with purchase!  WooHoo!

I bought mine today, blew it up myself and have already done a few arm curls!  I won’t mention that at the time I was also alternately reaching in my sweatshirt pocket to eat M&M’s which I was hiding from my kids.  That little fact is just not important.

And, last but not least, who likes flavored coffee creamer?

coffee-mate-canada I do!  I do!  What would you do if I said I got 8 of these 16 oz flavored (liquid) creamers for $1.50?  That’s $1.50 total!  For reals!  They are on sale this week at Meijer (that’s Meijer, not Meijer’s people!) for $0.99, and if you go to Coffee Mate’s website you can get coupons for $1.00 off one and $1.50 off two.  Now, we don’t normally hoard things like coffee creamer, but we seriously felt like we’d won the lottery!  And, we don’t even drink coffee!  Just kidding, we do.

If my luck the last two days is any indication of how my year is going to be, it’s definitely going to be a great one!

What a way to start the year... you are lucky indeed.

I love coffee creamers (though I don't drink coffee. hahaha!). I just love the smell of hazelnut creamer in my hubby's coffee.
