The Grocery Game

Has anyone heard of this? I am sure it works better the bigger your family, but I think it would work for us too.

What is The Grocery Game? Here's what the website has to say:

The Grocery Game is a website that can save you hundreds of dollars on grocery bill each month. Log in, spend a few minutes with a pair of scissors, and you're off to win The Grocery Game!

When you play, you'll get a weekly list (called Teri's List) of the lowest-priced products at your supermarket matched with manufacturers' coupons and weekly specials -- advertised and unadvertised. The Grocery Game does all the hard work and research, and presents it to you in a straightforward format.

If any of you do The Grocery Game, please leave a comment and tell me about your experience with it. I think I am going to try the $1 trial period.

In case you missed it above...Here's the link:

Celebrate Spring!

The weather here in Texas has been beautiful. We had a warm and sunny weekend. We spent Friday evening and Saturday visiting Barry's brother and his family. Saturday was spent outside enjoying the sun. Not only was the weather wonderful, but so was our time with them.

Having lived in Michigan most of my life, I'm not used to having this kind of weather this early in spring. I'm not sure I have a favorite season, I know it's not winter, but the remaining three are pretty equal in my book. In honor of the wonderful spring weather we've been having, I wanted to list the things I love most about spring...a "celebrate spring" post!

* Flip flops and sandals
* Open windows and fresh air
* Flowers
* Budding trees
* Packing away those winter clothes
* Thunderstorms...minus tornadoes of course!
* Walks with Barry and Sam at the park
* Working in the yard
* Green grass
* Knowing that summer vacation is right around the corner!!!!
* Chirping birds
* Baby animals
* Wind chimes
* Daylight savings
* Watching Barry work in the garden....he loves it!

I could go on and on, but these are the ones that come to mind quickly. What are your favorite things about spring?

It's Happening!

I've posted about Tricia and Nathan before. I don't know them personally, but found their blog through the blog of a friend. Tricia has Cystic Fibrosis and delivered Gwyneth more than 15 weeks prematurely back in January.
Their story is one of hope, faith in God and love! Tricia has been waiting for a double lung transplant and thought she was going to get her transplant earlier this week, it didn't happen that night, but it is tonight!!! Praise God! Please pray for this family, for Tricia's doctors and nurses and also for the family of the donor...someone had to die in order for this to happen for Tricia. Go on over and check out Nathan's site for more information and updates tonight. Leave them a message of encouragement if you so desire, but most of all....PRAY!!
