Hayes was finally well enough to go back to school today... just in time for the 100th day of Kindergarten. The class was assigned to create something that included 100 pieces. Because he loves to help in the kitchen, a cake with 100 candles is what we came up with. I'd love to be there to see Ms. Black try and light all of those up at the same time!

Sitting up in the fort, I see a boy who FINALLY was able to get outside, breathe some fresh air and play. What a pretty day!
I see a boy who is happy to hang out with his mom and wants to make her proud by showing her his cool Battleforce 5 tricks.
I see a boy who continues to amaze me with the things he knows. "We celebrate Martin Luther King, Jr. because he broke the rules and taught the white people to love the black people." He has also informed Kyle and I that parting means to toot or burp. :)
I see a boy with a smile that will melt a girl's heart someday. Good thing he is going to be a "bachelor" when he grows up. That way I don't have to share him with another girl. :)
I see a boy who is quickly approaching six years of age. How does a mom come to terms with her babies just not staying babies for very long?
Love you Hayes. Had fun during our you and me time today.

So, the whole Walgreens game has sucked me in. A few of you (Huh hmmm... Kyle, Courtney, Laura) think it is mildly entertaining that I am so wrapped up in it. :)This is what I got during my trip tonight.
I handed over my coupons and paid $9.45 for everything. I didn't even have coupons for the cereal. They were just on sale for $1.75.
I then got these babies back.
So I came out a little ahead this week.
Thanks to the Loreal concealer.
It is regularly priced $9.49.
It's on sale for $6.49 this week.
I had a $3 manufacturer coupon from the paper.
I also had $5 in register rewards from last week.
So that means I earned $1.51 for buying it. Yay!
There are a ton of other great deals this week. I've just been sticking to stuff that we will actually use.
There are websites all over the internet matching up store sales with manufacturer coupons. My favorite is 918 Coupon Queen. However, the last couple weeks, I have been making myself go through the ads and match them up on my own so I can learn the system a little better.
I have to admit I had to push through the learning process at first. It was quite a lot to take in for a girl who has never really paid much attention to her spending. But it gets easier and dare I say, a little fun. :)
Now once that new CVS opens around the corner... I'm all over it.
