Super Saturday

It was my wards Super Saturday last Saturday and I had a blast. I had so much fun getting to know a few more sisters in my ward and I love crafting. As pictured I made a cute Christmas board that turned out 100% better then I expected, and I made a Recipe book holder. I also had a chance to make a cute jewelery holder for a friend. It was way fun and I wish I could get together and craft more.

A Mommy Break at the Spa

Today I finally cashed in my spa gift card I got for mothers day. I went to a spa not too far away that had really good prices. I tried two new services and I was really surprised at how much I liked my facial. I was really nervous for some reason but it was really great! I just had an express and I can totally see why people get the works, it makes your skin feel so soft and healthy.

I also got my first pedicure at a spa. It was the very basic one but it was nice and I love the nail polish I chose. I have to admit I didn't enjoy it has much as I thought I would. I guess I like massages better. I think the next time I go to a spa I will get a deep tissue message:)

I'm Reading a Book?

As you may see on my side bar I added the current book that I am reading. Many of you may find this shocking. I know I do. I am not a huge reader but I am trying. The other day I checked out my first library book since moving to this area over two years ago. Of course Levi is a big reader and though I hope Clark ends up more like him I also thought it was good that he knows that I can also read books from the library.

She loses, He Loses is a great book and I totally recommend it. It really helps me understand why men lose faster and why we are so different when it comes to weight loss, weight gain, and how to support each other. I am almost half way through and I have found it to be very enlightening.

Wholesome Entertainment

I recently canceled my cable and I am trying to find other modes of entertainment for me and for Clark. I have decided that I need to go to the library more and so Clark and I have been to two different library's this week. The first time was awful. He was so loud and the library was so small and didn't really have a decent kids area. The second time I did a little more research and found what book I wanted and found that first then we went to the kids area where he played quietly (For the most part) and did some puzzles and read a few books all the while I was in and out of reading the book I picked out for myself. It was still a little stressful since he is still learning to use his library voice but it was much better than the first time. I am sure in time we will both come to enjoy it better. Clark does love the Curious George book we checked out for him.

Later that night we made dinner together. Clark is so cute and gets so excited about pizza so he had a blast:) It was fun and not too much work since I just bought the pizza dough you just add water to. I am sure we will do it again and it is fun that he is getting old enough to help out in the kitchen.

My Scrapbook Night Out

I recently signed up to be a part of a scrapbook group in my area on It is really fun to be able to have one night a month to scrapbook and meet new people and learn new things. Clark was really good about it and loved the chance to have some daddy time. He even said "Bye-Bye Mom" to me. It was so sweet. There was a $5 fee and a make a take as well. I made about 11 cards plus this make and take. It is a fun pop up card that I will probably make more of soon. Here are the pics.

I finally started to be serious about coupon cutting. I had a class with the spouse association yesterday and it was truly inspiring. I just want to be able to save as much as I can. I went to the website of the store I usually go to and found out that Shoppers was having a triple coupon saving for this weekend. I pulled out all my coupons and went through the ones I wanted to use. I ended up saving 18 dollars and spending only 40 on groceries this week instead of nearly $60. I hope I can continue to do so and save us more money. Any ideas or feedback on how to keep saving with coupons would be very helpful:) Thanks

Ahhh...The Spa

Levi gave me a spa finder gift certificate for Mothers day and I still haven't used it but I am so needing to now. I haven't quite decided where to go so tonight I searched the web looking for that perfect treatment. As I was looking from website to website reading each spa service's details I was more and more relaxed. Just thinking about the spa relaxed me to the point where I am some what blurry eyed trying to type this post. Of course that could also be due to the fact I am super tired.

So to those that are feeling an extra stress in their life and have the means I beg of you to go to the spa and find some relaxation and relief.
