Back in the game...

Since the big move, I have not been couponing as much as I have wanted to. I was trying to clear out and eat what we had before we moved, then once we moved in it was just easier to buy things for just a few days or go out to eat. So...TODAY, I am back in the game. I did go to Kroger and Publix, but bought ALL of this for 66 bucks! I am pumped! I got meat too, which isnt usually in a ticket that low! Check it out:
2 jars of Emerald peanuts
1 can of Planter's peanuts
2 All detergents
3 Uncle Bens rice boxes
Sirloin steak
7 lbs. of chicken
bottled water
Nature's Own bread
Bagel thins
Fresh Express lettuce
1 box of Ritz Crackers
3 bags of Bird's Eye Viola
3 tomatoes
1 green pepper
1 onion
1 jar of Smucker's preserves
1 Jar of Mayo
One package of hotdogs
1 Box of graham crackers
1 package of orbit gum
2 Tubes of Pringles
24 bottled waters
2 rolls of paper towels
1 box of granola bars
I saved over 100 with sales and coupons. I am so pumped!

Summer Fun Continues

This summer has been full of busy days, but also full of fun times. My best friend Amy came up to Auburn to spend the night with me. We then left bright and early and went to Market in Atlanta! It was overwhelming but so fun! This is a view of just one of the 3 huge buildings!Amy owns a business, so I got to be her guest. She was so excited and bought so much! I was just along for the ride!
We were LOADED down with bags! It was so fun! We are going back again one of these days!
Ryan and I have enjoyed Auburn's restaurant's and bars. We have gone out with friend's and just us. Last night we enjoyed watching the National Championship re-run at Moe's bbq and enjoyed our time together!
Ryan's sweet dad, Max, came in town to spend the day with us, while his wife Becky is at the family house in Maine with her mother. We went to lunch, toured Auburn's campus, snuck into the football stadium, visited the new arena, and stalked Auburn's football camp for recruits. Then we went to a nice dinner, courtesy of Max, my ffil :)
This week, I am off to Birmingham for some much needed mom time, 2 Willow House parties, and some friend time. Then back to Auburn for my launch Willow House party! Have a great week!

Fourth, Friends, Family

We had a wonderful 4th of July. Ryan and I invited our best friends from Huntsville to go to Jacksonville with us! We road on the boat, ate good food, relaxed in the pool, played golf, went to Ponte Vedra, and more! We started the trip off at Amsterdam's in Auburn the night before we left :)
