Good Grief...

From Charlie Brown but I was def. saying that when I walked out of Kroger and Wal-Mart earlier this week. I left these two stores with some great deals! I was so excited I turned around to Selah in the car and held my hand up for a high-five and was hooting and scared her and she gave me a really freaked out look.

These are the great buys I got at Kroger. Total retail on these items was over $30, but with sales and coupons my OOP was only about $8! And that includes almost 5 lbs of ground beef!

This is a picture of my Wal-Mart buys. Now I usually don't go to Wal-Mart because I think their policies are too difficult and their employees don't get it, but I couldn't pass up these free items.
Retail for all of this (in my estimation) is roughly $34, plus I got a double Sunday paper. My total OOP was $5.76!!!! Yes, Maam! I got a good deal! That means I only paid .76 for all the items excluding the newspaper....Awesome!

I want to leave this post with a picture of my baby girl taking her first few bites of cereal,she is one of the reasons I take the time to search out these big deals.

Grandma Lori....

Here is a post by my sister-in-law about my mother-in-law who died 12 years ago. She just has a way with words, and I love to honor Lori, but since I never met her, I will do it through PJ. Thanks PJ for always sharing with us. Click on the title of this post to go to PJ's.

Blessings in my Life!

I just thought I would take minute and tell everyone about my favorite people. Of course, God is my number one, but i didn't have a picture of Him! lol.
But, a close second is the love of my life, my husband James "Bubba" Portis. He is the most faithful, patient, loving, intentional, strongest, and serving man. I couldn't have built a better partner in life for myself. I praise God and give Him all the glory for getting us together.
Next come my girls. Selah and Rinnah already show some significant differences in their personalities. However, I love both of them so much. When it was just Selah, I always thought there was no way I could ever love another child as much as I lover her. Then Rinnah came along! I am so blessed to have an example from the ultimate parent who loves every one of his children equally....

I guess this whole post is just to say that my life is blessed by nothing more than the love God has given me through first his son Jesus Christ and then those he placed in my life.

Go Cowboys!

Last Monday, we had the privilege of attending the Cowboy game at the new stadium. My name was drawn at our church's Rally day.... we got 4 tickets and a parking ticket! Awesome!
The stadium was beautiful and HUGE! I just kept looking around in awe. I can't believe someone can imagine that in their head and then create it with their hands.
It makes me think about how creative God is, and how He thought of this whole world and then created it all!
We serve an awesome God!
