I'm so tired.

So Nick and I went to sleep around 11:45 last night. After laying in bed for awhile we heard glass clinking together, but we just brushed it off. Fifteen minutes later I heard it again so I went to check it out and almost my peed my pants laughing. Noelle was sitting on the couch in the complete dark with her pillow and blanket. And she was eating out of the candy dish that was full of jellybeans, she ate most of the dish. Now here's the dilemma, I couldn't put her back in the playpen because she would have cried and screamed and woke up Eli. I didn't want her in my room either trying to wake up Nick. So I lay down on the couch with her and she did not want to sleep. She kept covering me with her blanket and petting my hair and trying to put me to sleep haha. Then she proceeded to fart like 3 times, and every time she farted she said "I fart" and then cracked up laughing. Still not wanting to go to sleep, she decides to ask me for an apple over and over again. When I don't answer her she changes tactics and starts asking me for milk. I ignored her on that one too. Finally she got up and ran a lap around the living room then asked me if she could go to bed. This REALLY surprised me. So I put her back in her playpen and she went right to sleep! Needless to say, we still spent most of the night awake. :(

Walgreens shopping trip 3/27

Sorry for the horrible picture quality... I had to take it in my bedroom so the kids wouldn't see.
Okay so this is my Walgreens shopping trip, I ended up spending $1.50.

-(2) 10 oz bags Jelly beans on sale .49 cents apiece
-(2) Mentos on sale .99 cents apeice, used two .50 cents off any mentos item coupon
-(4) Snickers Easter eggs .29 cents apiece, used two 1.00 off 2 coupons
Total before coupons = 4.12
Total saved= 2.62

This shopping trip wasn't much, I just picked up a few things for the kids Easter baskets.. And now that I think about it I should have went to walmart and price matched the snickers eggs so I could have gotten the overage to use towards my other items. Bummer :( Oh well.

It's been a bad week.

I've been sick the past few days and the car broke down yesterday which gave me a huge anxiety attack. I'm feeling a little better today though, And I got to grocery shopping and that always makes me happy. Weird I know... Haha but since I always save so much money on groceries it makes me excited!! Tomorrow I really need to organize the kids room and weed through their clothes and toys. So let's all hope I have some motivation tomorrow because that is going to be a lot of work. Well I'm off to read disss book! Adios muchacho.

I don't write these words for you, I write these words for me.

Car stereos...

... Cost too much money. The lady we bought the car from offered to let us keep the one that was in there for 70 dollars and we said no, thinking we could get one for cheaper. Nope. The cheapest we can find is 79 dollars. Guess we're going music-less for a while :( At least we don't have one for anyone to steal out of our car haha.
