Multi-lingual Child of Mine

"Hey mommy! Say the word Chinese. dis... 'Chi-neeez'."

"That's right mommy. Now you're speaking Spanish!"

She's a bit confused wouldn't ya say? But cute!

I have been so busy. We got a new laptop and I've been having trouble uploading pictures on it. I have so many pictures to share with you too. :/
I also decided spontaneously to redo E's room and it's looking beautiful! I've been deep into girly paint for 2 days and wouldn't have it any other way! Can't wait to share it with you.
I don't have any plans at this point to make this a coupon blog. But, as you see below, I've really enjoyed sharing some great stuff with you all. One thing I've been so busy on is learning the "art of couponing" and don't you laugh! There is truly an 'art' to this, if you want to do it right.
I have signed up to be a member at BeCentsAble and I encourage you, if you want to cut your budget even a little, check it out. I saw these ladies on GMA ~ video here. There are different levels that you can sign up for in the member area from free to $75. I joined at the $20 level and have 90 days to complete an online course...homework order to become a "Centsable Shopper" with their tips and advice, which is incredible! I'm already blown away and have only completed 2 out of 9 lessons.
We are also getting ready to gear up for Easter. I need to do some 'centsable' shopping and go find our Easter outfits! Our church also does a huge egg hunt and starting this week, we will be stuffing 14,000 eggs for the big day! We actually have an egg-stuffing party coming up at church. How fun is that?! :)
Another reason I have, once again I know, been so scarce 'round here is that we have all been so sick back to back. It's been no fun at all! Anyone that has ever lived here in Georgia can attest to the crazy weather we have. Infact, on Feb. 28th, we had tornadoes come through here and do some major damage on some folk's homes...Then, the following day, we had a huge snow storm! Well, huge for us anyway. It snowed all day and you know it - half the city shuts down for 2 days. It is so funny...
So with that crazy weather comes horrible colds and it's nasty! Following that...comes the pollen, which like a little monster, creeps into your house right under your nose. You don't realize it until your child begins waking up for 2 and 3 hours during the night coughing her head off - repeatedly! Everyone seems to be complaining with sore throats here and there and coughing and yucky nose stuff and I just wonder if the pollen may be worse than normal right off the bat.
Oh the joy of Spring! I can deal with it though because with that exception, I love Spring and Fall! Today is the first day too! :)
I have some major cleaning to get done today so that we can get out and enjoy a fun weekend as a family.
So if you are still here after all of my rambling, have a wonderful weekend and Happy Spring!

Good Weekend Finds

Updated to add:

* Do you love Smoothie King? Sign up for their "Kingdom" and receive a coupon for a BOGO 20 oz. smoothie of your choice. Then, you will receive offers periodically by email, as well as a coupon for a free smoothie on your birthday! Yea...we love free! :)

Okay so I'm in the process of learning all about the art of couponing. You may laugh, but there is truly an art to it. There are so many things to learn about the right way to go about saving money with coupons and deals and, while at first, it is a bit overwhelming to learn...I can't wait to share it with you.

In the process, I keep coming across some great freebies and deals that I can't just keep to myself.

I know I've had several people take advantage of the earlier post and I'm glad to hear!
By the way, the coupon for the Free Roastburger at Arby's is only good through Monday so get to printing! These really are good.

So, here are more!

* Go to each week for new coupon specials to print. This is really have to click around on the page to find the best coupon. But you can only print one and you can't share it! I read where there once was a coupon on there for $75 off of $100 purchase! That is unreal! (Hint for this week: Extra Extra read all about it!)

* Pay it Forward event with Gap, Old Navy and Banana Republic. Print this coupon and use it as many times as you'd like from March 12 - 15th for 30% off! 5% of your purchase will be donated to The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.

* Go here for a FREE sample of Betty Crocker Warm Delights Mini's. You have to sign up for their email newsletter, but what a great way to get delicious recipes sent to you each week!

* Want a FREE Diet Dr. Pepper?

* RedBox FREE movie rental codes...Every Monday! During the month of March, you can get a FREE rental every Wednesday too! Go here to sign up and visit the RedBlog every Monday or Wednesday for the free rental code.

So for now that's it. See how fun this is? If you'd like to get a "coupon education" like me, visit and browse around.

Have a great weekend and be sure to give me some feedback! :)
