Things I like

I’ve already missed a few posts out of my 100.  Since it was national breastfeeding week, of course, I got a plugged duct/mastitis from feeding Bo and it took me out for a good day and a half.  I had a fever, pain and felt like I had the flu.  Brilliant timing.  So, to kick off the week’s “Things I like” post, I’ll start with…

1.  This website: Kellymom.com If you’re a breastfeeding mom, it’s super helpful and I attribute it to helping me know what to do without having to spend time waiting in the docs office (to be told to go home and rest and drink fluids and some other things you can read about if you reeallly want to, but you probably don’t) and to know that an antibiotic wasn’t necessary unless the infection got worse!

2.  The Little Rascals (1994).  We had a movie night with the boys and they loved it!  All three boys laughed so hard and Wes and I enjoyed seeing it again too – it had been a while!  Thanks to Uncle Sam for singing “I got a dollar…I got a dollar” and giving us the idea!

3.  Annabelle Hydrangeas and summertime in our yard.  I know I’ve mentioned the fun we are having with our vegetable garden, but I have also been loving our yard and everything that is growing in so well with all the summer rain and sunshine.  We’ve been constantly picking things to bring in or make arrangements with and it is so much fun.  It’s all exactly how I want it!  I’ve been in hydrangea heaven.

4.  The Weekly Meal Deal from the Fresh Market.  It is only $20 and it easily feeds everyone.  Bonus that it’s one less meal to plan out for the week.

(Last week was Tacos, this week was Kebabs – both were great!  Unfortunately next week is sausages…not sure how that will go over so we may have to take a week off…)

5.  The boys skin has been so dry from all of our swimming and we’ve been loving the the Baby Oil from Beautycounter.  Bo was the one that got us all started on it! It’s less expensive than their other body oil we’d been using and the kids like the baby one better because they are weird about scents and this doesn’t have a smell.   And I love not having to worry about it having anything unsafe in it.

6.  The moms from “Wild and Free” – a group of homeschool mothers – I mostly follow them on instagram or their individual blogs but many of them have helped me to be more inspired about what’s next for us, especially as it feels like we heading down such a different path and everyone (including Rand) is talking about starting kindergarten, etc.

7.  These tasty drinks:  The fresh squeezed OJ at our massive Harris Teeter Juice Bar, Southern Pines Brewing Co. “Malty by Nature,” Cactus Creek “Butter Pecan” coffee (you can taste it at the Roast Office), and my old standby which I have yet to tire of… Peach Pear LaCroix with a splash of Organic Cranberry Juice Cocktail.

Cheers to Monday and a fresh new week!

Go to Harris Teeter Today

Yesterday was the 7th anniversary of my dad’s death and I thought I would maybe do a blog about him but I just wasn’t up to it so…instead I thought I’d tell you about a great deal at Harris Teeter.  If you go today (I think the sale ends tomorrow, but I’m not 100% sure…new deals begin on Wednesday and not sure if this will continue after today), print out 2 coupons (link below) for $1.85 off a Birds Eye Voila!

Currently they are B1G1 Free at Harris Teeter so that makes each one only .84 Cents (normally they are $5.38 each)!  Wes and I are able to get dinner for the two of us, plus lunch for me the next day out of 1 bag.  We really like the Garlic Chicken.  I can’t believe how good it is for the price and it only takes 10-13 min. to heat it up in a skillet (which also means you only have to wash 1 pan!)

Birds Eye Voila! 22oz for .84 cents!  FOR REAL.

Soup Supper and Super Doubles

Happy New Year!

With the chilly temps that have settled in, we opted for a soup & grilled cheese night.  I found this recipe for Tomato-Basil-Parmesan Soup on Pinterest and it was yummy.  Even Wes, who is picky about tomatoes, went back for a second bowl.  Only things I changed…I used 1/2 cup of half and half and 1 and 1/2 cups of skim milk.  I think next time I may just use all skim milk.  Also, I used low-sodium chicken broth and omitted the salt.  Parmesan cheese is really salty, so taste your soup first before you add the salt!

Now I’m off to shop at Harris Teeter (HT Express online).  Super Doubles starts tomorrow…that means any coupon under $1.98 face value will be doubled (even some that say “Do not double” still double!)

Have I told you yet?

I’m thankful for Harris Teeter Express.

If you know me already, you may be sick of hearing how obsessed I am with the new Harris Teeter Express.  I’m convinced that this new service was made just for me. Both Wes and I have determined that the $4.95 fee actually saves us money.  How is that?  I usually have at least $4.95 in coupon savings, but mostly it saves me from the extra things I suddenly need once I’m inside HT.  Eggs? Check. Bread?  Check.  Yummy cheese, new brand of yogurt, extra bottle of wine, gum, magazine, oreos…hey, they were on sale…

I am a planner.  I like to plan out what I’m going to buy and what coupons I’m going to use.  The planning usually takes up to an hour to do…then I still have to go get it and shop for it which can take an hour or longer (especially if I’m using coupons or if it’s senior discount day).  But now I just make one list.  When I’m done with the list, I just hit “order.”  Right after I delete a few things to get my total down to what I want it to be, of course.  Then I  just pull up in front of Harris Teeter at the time I chose (you can order up to 6 days ahead) and someone loads them in the car and swipes my debit card.  So far, I’ve spent less time and a lot less money grocery shopping.  What has impressed me even more:  I always get a phone call prior to my pickup time notifying me my order is ready early and asking if there is anything I forgot or would like to add!  Harris Teeter did not pay me to say any of this, I promise.  Give it a try and see for yourself.  Thank you Harris Teeter.

Okay…on to other things.  I’m guest blogging today about the Pinehurst Turkey Trot (a race sponsored by FirstHealth) over on sandhillsDig.com, so go check it out.  Thank you awesome November weather.

Also, I’ve been meaning to post this photo of Rand and Jonathan.  It was my favorite photo from our recent trip to the mountains.  Not only is it a fun moment captured, but also wows me because I never would have imagined that my sweet friend from way back in the 5th grade would be holding my son one day.  AND that our sons would be 1 week apart AND that his wife would become a great friend of mine too.  Thank you Lord for old friends!

Zulily wins

While I am loving the new “express checkout” at Harris Teeter (you order your groceries online and then choose a time to pick them up…you can order up to 6 days in advance!  great for “planners” like me)…I got sucked in to the Zulily daily email today and ended up using some store credit to buy Rand one of these:

It is supposed to work in highchairs too.  And since Rand loves to chew on everything, I’m hoping this (and lots of prayer) will save us from some cold-season bugs.  It was a hard decision…there were 3 that I thought were super cute, but we only need one.

 

See you at Harris Teeter…it is Super Doubles this week!
