The first order of business tonight is the Eversave/Red Mango giveaway. There weren't too many entries for this giveaway. Of the 5 commenters, only 3 were local. So I used Random.org to come up with Kristin as the winner of the Red Mango Save and an additional $5 in Save credit.
However, I didn't want Michele from GotchaBaby or Ms. Dawn to go away empty-handed. One of the things I love about Eversave is their referral credits. I've got quite a few racked up, so I used some of my referral credits to buy the Red Mango Save for Michele and Dawn as a gift from me. If all three of you will send me the e-mail address you use for Eversave.com, I'll make sure you get your prizes. (My e-mail is 4thfrog70 (at) gmail (dot) com.)
Speaking of saving money, yesterday I hosted a couponing class taught by my friend Cherie, aka the Queen of Free. We had 12+ people there and lots of good info shared. What I liked about Cherie's approach was that she advocates "practical couponing" as opposed to "extreme couponing." She is also very ethical in her approach to making the most of the coupons provided by manufacturers and retailers. If you haven't done so yet, head over to the Cherie's site and check it out.
This is Annie's last week of classes before 8th grade graduation. Holy sands of time, Batman! How did that get here already?! The boys go until the first week of June. They won't be happy when they still have to go to school and she doesn't.
Last week, Annie was in the school's production of Into the Woods, Jr. (an age-appropriate version of the original). She played Jack & the Beanstalk's mother. I know I'm biased, but she did a great job!
Also last week, Charlie brought this sticker home from the school book fair. I have no idea why he would have chosen this one:
Given that it's almost midnight, it seems like that's a good note to end on. Hope you all have a terrific week!
