Two Pair of Jeans, Two T-Shirts and Four Pack of Tape= $9!

While feeding the baby and looking around at the housework that had crept up in the night i decided that today was a nice day to take a walk. So I grabbed my coupons {which by the way are still available at} and left to just look around, not expecting to find anything super, i wasnt doing my normal coupon run.

 Anyways So i grabbed my $2 of graphic t-shirt coupons, my $3 off denim coupons and my scotch tape coupons for $1 off one. To make my money go further i always look in the clearance section. Today just happened to be my lucky day! I found two shirts each on sale for less than $5 and two pairs of jeans on clearance for just over $5.Then i made my way to the school supplies which i happened to get into yesterday and get free sharpie markers, penmate pens and tape. They each are marked down to a $1 and Target had their coupons for $1 off each. making my scotch tape, my pens and sharpie markers all free!!! Now what are you waiting for?!?!?! go print your coupons and score some deals!!!
Doing the math {$9 - $4=$5 for t-shirts/  $10 - $6=$4 for Jeans /and$1-$1=$0 Scotch tape Total= $9.94}

Remember you can print TWO coupons per computer.

Summer Frames

Super easy Summer decor


Scrapbook paper
frames of different sizes ( i just went to the dollar store)

First i organized how i wanted my frames to stand then layed out a coordinating scrapbook paper in the order i liked the colors and prints to be.

Next i went to the computer and printed a letter in a different font. Each font ranged from 300 to 500 in size. I cut each letter out and used a glue stick to glue the letters to the scrapbook paper.

Done and done! Whew! That was easy!!!

I got the idea from the wonderful Tatertots and Jello. I totally forgot to credit her on this. My apologies Jen!

Yeah there are rolls underneath that mound of icing lol. Mama likes her icing :) They are amazing! I can't believe my first experience with dough was so successful!! Hubbs and Baby love the recipe so i'll post that as soon as i find it again. These were sooo good that when i lifted the tin foil to take a picture the hubby shouted from the other room, "Not without  me!!!" ha ha anyone else have an amazing recipe they would like to share? post it on your blog and let me follow you!

Like Mother Like Daughter

Above is the recipe for these delicious cinnamon rolls :)

Cinnamon Rolls

Well ladies it is that time again... The weekend! The other day while venturing off in blogland i came across a recipe for cinnamon rolls. Now i know my mom has the very best and she swears i'll never get that recipe but i had to find something to hold me over until she decided to make them again. So far everything is going well... Of course i used the things i remember from mom making them at home such as using floss to cut the cinnamon rolls and putting flour on your hands before kneading the dough. I miss those days waking up christmas morning to smell those HUGE delicious rolls cooking.. ahh... nothing is as ever as good as home until you have a family of your own :)

anyways.. i'm letting those bad boys rise and then i'll put them in the oven. If they turn out even a fraction of how mom's are then you better believe i'll post the lady's recipe for ya. Mmmm they smell so good right now!

I'll post pics when they are cooked and frosted
