Little Brothers!

Hi Everyone!! I'm so excited that my mom and dad have adopted me a 4 legged little brother! He is going to be so much fun to run around our new yard with! He looks just like me!! We are going to be the best of friends! :) I'll make sure that mom posts some pictures of us playing soon! Mom and Dad are going to go pick him up on Sat. They have to drive all the way to Salina, UT to get him. It will be worth it though.....I can't wait!!!! ---Jake ( the new big brother) P.S. My dad even went and got us new tags before we knew for sure that we'd get our lil' buddy! Buddy 6 months if you want to see a video of buddy playing at his foster home you can follow the link

OK so as the house becomes closer and closer to being ours I complied a list of things that we have! Lets just say we have been very blessed that all of our older friends have given us things that they no longer wanted ( when they decided to re-do a room).
~We get to keep all of the furniture that is currently in the house. That consists of a TV (like 1920's) entertainment center, coffee table, couch(1960's) washer & Dryer ( which we already have a set of) and the bed in the master its' a queen ! There are also a few quilts and cleaning supplies and what not!
~~ So all together we have 6 bed's ( 1 king, 1 queen and 4 twins)!
~~We have 5 couches,( 2 full size, one hideabed, 2 love seats) and one big comfy chair!)
~~3 TVs though the antique is just that an antique~ we have 6 coffee tables/end tables! Good crap we have a lot of overage! We are thinking that a yard sale might be in order sometime in the near future!!!

But all in all we are very excited to get started moving in, Josh talked to our mortgage lady and found out that we might get to close early....Thurs or Friday of this week! (it was supposed to be the 29th)

Clearance Shoppers Anonymous

Calling all clearance shoppers.....we are having a meeting! Hello everyone my name is Leslie and I'm addicted to shopping clearances. My last major purchase was hair products, I spent $120 on Paul Mitchel, Biolage, Redkin....etc. I love my Professional hair products.....the good news they were all 75% off so I saved a good $300!! Now I just need to convince my loving husband that I need all of the products! Stay posted for our next meeting of CSA.

Help I'm turning into an old woman

While in Ogden we stayed at my grandma's and I started crocheting during conference! I think she'd be proud of my talent! OK it's not quiet a blanket, but not horrible either. :)

Not to bad for not having done it in over 7 years!

Yeah for thrifty friends!!

So while in Northern Utah we went to luch with my girlfriend Nicole and she introduced me to the coolest shop ever. It's called Plato's Closet, they buy your gently used (less than a year old) name brand clothes and then sell them! This was my $12 outfit!!

I think that every job should involve recess! I love going out to recess, and lately recess times have changed so I get to take one student out and run around the playground! How can you beat getting paid to go run around outside and climb around on the playground? Personally I don't think it can be beat!
