Groupon is fast becoming my new favorite website. Have you joined yet? Awesome coupons that are usually about half off the regular price. Today’s deal?$15 for five-visit punch card to indoor open-play area at SuperGames. It’s winter. We’re all looking for ways the kiddos can burn all that energy, and this couldn’t come at a better time!
Other favorites? 2-for-1 deals on movies, admission tickets to festivals, half off of food, even on spa services. It makes those guilty pleasures a little easier on the budget. So go ahead and plan date night – you can afford it now!
So go ahead, join today! (and let them know I referred you!)
P.S. They ARE available in most cities including Tallahassee!
I hope all my lovely readers out there ***crickets….silence*** had a lovely Christmas. We had a lovely time.
I made a Christmas dinner for friends including this super yummy bread pudding.
Munchkin got his very first sled ride…and quite a few after that!
We went to church on Christmas Eve.
And fed the horses…
We enjoyed some crackers. My “toy” was a pair of really bad nail clippers and a joke…want to hear it? You know you do.
What kind of soap does a judge use? Give up??? TRAIL size soap! ahaahhahahaha….okay, so not the best joke ever.
Had lunch at one of the best restaurants ever. (I got grilled cheese of course, and onion rings. BEST ONION RINGS EVER)
I rang in the new year with my sister and crew at a country club. It was awesome because I was by far one of the youngest people there to celebrate with friends.
And I finally got a pair of wellies! Aren’t they cute? I even found fleece inserts so they are nice and warm.
We also went to a couple of tag sales. Nothing super exciting, but I did find some loaf pans so I can bake more quick breads and a cute 60s enameled bowl. Santa also brought me some fun vintage finds for Christmas. Did I ever mention I collect hammered aluminum? Well, I got a TON of it for Christmas and now I am in hammered aluminum bliss.
So, that’s my end of year/ year so far. But here is to being single and making dreams come true in the new year! I love the number 11. It’s a fabulous number. When I won first place in horse competitions, my number always had 11 in it. When I ran my fastest time in cross country my number was 11. So 2011, let’s do it!
New muffin recipe! My friend, Russ, once said how much he loved Morning Glory muffins. I saw a recipe the other day, so I decided to try them AND THEY ARE AWESOME!!! Seriously, it uses a little of everything that you probably already have on hand and makes this moist, totally yummy muffin. I made 18 and they are already gone.
As I’ve been whining about, it’s also been super cold here. Not good for someone who lived in Florida for the past six years. So Monday, after the weather guy on television told me to dress for -10, I rediscovered my leg warmers my dear friend Nash gave me for my birthday last year.
Totally hot, right? But they are WARM, and they have lime green in them! Perfect! Don’t worry, I wore them under my boots, so unless you were looking own into the boots, you couldn’t really tell. Can you imagine the looks at work if I wore them as is? That would be hilarious!
I also just ordered my first real winter coat. You like? It took me forever to find one that I liked AND that I could find in my size. I wanted something girl, but super warm, and nice enough I could wear it to work and not look unprofessional. I had to get black since that was the only color left in my size.
