The World of Couponing!

So, I have been sucked into the world of couponing!!! I have always clipped coupons here and there, but never really saw a huge savings...until now. I have been reading this blog,, and have learned so much, especially about Walgreens. When my sister lived in Chicago she would always tell me about the great deals she got at CVS. I was so jealous that we didn't have a CVS here in Fresno...that is until I heard about Walgreens Rebate system. At first it is a little confusing, but I am starting to get the hang of it. On last nights trip this is what I got:

4 boxes of Kellogg's Cereal
1 Pledge Fabric Sweeper
Colgate Toothpaste
Right Guard Deodorant
Axe Shampoo+Conditioner
Aveeno Baby Sunscreen

Total after coupons, rebates, and register rewards:

Not all weeks are that good, but I am very proud of myself that I got all that for only $2.80.

This is for Kristen! House Pictures!!!

So I finally have a couple house pictures(thanks to Joey's friend Eric!)

This would be our messy kitchen:)
Front of the house
Our living room. Please don't mind me, Oliver had just thrown up all over himself and his car seat and I was trying to get him undressed and ready for his bath.

I still can't find the cord for my camera that connects to the computer. We actually really need a new camera. Hopefully within the next couple months I can get the Canon Rebel XS, it is such a nice camera. Also, I just finished painting Oliver's room, all I need to do is hang some pictures and other stuff on the wall. Maybe I can find the cord by the time I have done that and post a picture of his room(it is so cute!)

My Baby is 7 Months Old!

So I can't believe it...Oliver is 7 months old today! He is such a great baby. He is doing new things everyday. Here are some of the things that he has been up to:

He can waive "Hi". So far he only does this to my dad and the cats.

He can fall asleep in his crib by himself. We still sometimes rock him, but for the most part we put him down awake. Sometimes he goes right down and other times he cries for a couple minutes and then he is out.

He likes everything we have fed him so far except peas!

He loves to laugh at the cats. When ever we walk by them he cracks up at them.

He likes to play with is cousins.

He loves to ride in the car. I got him this little toy that attaches to his car seat and he plays with it all the time. It is a little frog that plays music. When you press the eyes they each play a different song. He will press one of the eyes, then right after he presses that one, he will press the other. We call it his Ollie Mix:)

He loves to go on walks with Grammy.

He is starting to crawl. Although I think he is still about a month away from fully crawling. He will get on his hands and knees and rock back and forth.

We have introduced a sippy cup to him. He is still not too sure about it though. I think I will go and get him a couple different kinds to see what works best for him.

I am sure there are a ton of more things that I am missing. And he does something new and funny every day.

(I have a really cute picture that I took with my phone. I will upload it as soon as I get home tonight)
