Dearest T.B.

Dear Tory Burch "Carnell" Peeptoe Wedge in Royal Tan:

I need you.want you.must have my life.  


P.S. Maybe the shoe fairy will deliver a pair to my closet.


So I was getting my hair done last night and while I was under the dryer I was flippin' through a Self magazine and came across this.....

a recipe for Cornflake-Crusted Banana Stuffed French Toast.  I was so tempted to rip this recipe right out of the mag, but, that would be rude. So, I busted out my handy smart phone and snapped a pic so that I could make this yummy goodness at a later date......well, that later date ended up being last night.   I couldn't stop thinking about how good this recipe sounded and more so, that it was healthy, so I stopped at Publix last night and got the 'gredients.  Umm, it's pretty much the best thing ever - although, next time I will be adding a bit 'o peanut butter as well (suggested by JWP) :)

If only I was rich.

Umm, can I just tell you that I L-O-V-E everything on this page from Ann Taylor's website??? You know, I've often considered getting a part time/weekends only job at Ann Taylor not so much for the money, but for the discount.  Because clearly if I worked there, I would not be making any money, because every dollar would go right back to AT (but, at least it would be at a very discounted prices)...hmm......anyone know if AT is hiring? :)

Weekend deals at CVS and Publix.


 Last night I headed to CVS to get some stuff to add to the stock pile.  I purchased the following:
  •  CVS mouthwash
  • (2) Right Guard deoderants
  • Tide
  • Gilette bodywash
  • (2) Old spice bodywash
  • (2) Dawn dish soaps
  • Charmin
  • Colgate toothpaste
  • 3 pack Ivory soap
  • 2 Reach toothbrushes
  • Bic Soleil Shimmer razor
All of this was worth $72.50, but I paid $32.10, plus got $9.77 worth of ECB's.  I think I am going to take the toothbrushes back because CVS wouldn't accept my coupon for them.  I purchased a double pack of toothbrushes for $3.99 and had a $1/2 coupon - but, I was told that the double pack was considered one toothbrush for purposes of the coupon.  That is one thing I hate about "couponing" - if one of my coupons doesn't work, it throws off my cashing out experience.  I should have told the employee that I didn't want the toothbrushes, instead of paying $3.99 for them.  It bothered me my whole drive home!

Today, I went to Publix and purchased $136.00 worth of groceries for $52.39.  Sa-weet! My Publix purchases were:
  • (4) bags of Tidy Cat kitty litter (I ended up getting them for less than 3 cents per bag)
  • Charcoal
  • (2) Pop Secret popcorn
  • (2) Klondike slim-a-bear frozen bars
  • (2) Windex multi surface spray
  • (2) Windex glass cleaner
  • (6) Crystal Light 8 quart cannisters
  • (2) Lysol toilet cleaner
  • (2) Whole Fruit sorbet
  • (2) Planters Trail Mix
  • (2) Glade candles (I ended up paying .75 cents per candle)
  • (2) Jell-O Temptations Mousse
  • (3) Birds Eye Steam fresh veggies
  • (2) Applegate Farms bacon
  • Eggs
  • Asparagus
  • Goat cheese
  • Chicken breast
  • (2) packs of granola bars
  • (2) Pantene shampoo/conditioner
Don't believe me??? Here's the proof:

April recap.

Well, seeing as how I am a bit behind with the blog posts for April, I'm thinking a recap would be best, so here it goes.....
  • JWP was out of town for a couple of days, but, I was never lonely because Britt came down and kept me company.  We got in lots of girl time and even had a ladies night out complete with limo and wigs :) Fun times!
  • JWP came home on a Wednesday, which also happens to be date night around these parts, so I dipped out of work early so that we could head to the beach and enjoy some sun and "us" time.  We ordered sushi take-out and had a great date night!
  • I had a bit of the work blues this was a stressful month and I had a hard time focusing and finding my motivation.  I'm thankful April is over and I am ready to tackle this month...bring it on May!
  • I can't stop thinking about a much needed vacation (that has yet to be planned, but is on the top of my list) - I have got to get away for a couple of days! 
  • I am back on my eating right and working out plan and I am down 4 pounds :) woo hoo!
  • I had my best month yet couponing....I will have to blog about some of my better shopping trips later.
  • My mom adopted the cutest puppy ever from the Honor Animal Rescue where we both volunteer.  Her name is Bella and she is so sweet! I will post pics soon.
Ok, well, I think that about sums up my April. I hope you all had a fabulous month and I promise I will be back on track with my blogging.
