Amazon-deals-september-17

Good morning! How’s it going today? The deals were hopping yesterday! Especially for Amazon, I found some great deals last night! Women’s Dearforms robes as low as $9.60 (reg. $58!) – these would make super gifts or these Rampage Women’s Abbee Boots for $14.99 (reg. $49.95) – also a super deal.  I love finding HOT Amazon deals and we can expect things to just keep getting hotter as we head toward the holidays. I pride myself on finding the really HOT deals that aren’t being posted elsewhere – so you get first dibs.

Broccoli-sausage-stir-fry-recipe-pasta

I found a couple packages of marked down mushrooms at QFC, plus I had a $0.89/lb broccoli personalized price at Safeway – s0 last night we had one of my favorite meals Broccoli Sausage oregano stir fry. It comes together so quickly – I start the water on the stove (to boil the pasta) and by the time it starts boiling and I’ve cooked the noodles, the stir fry is ready.  Leftovers the next day taste even better, I think. :)

Frozen-Yogurt-Bellevue-Bliss-Berrry

Good morning! It’s Monday!! How was your weekend? We had a good weekend. Saturday we headed north to South Center and Bellevue and ran a bunch of errands. We went to IKEA and picked up a few things (a brave task on a weekend! Keyword is PATIENCE!!), then ran over to Bellevue Square where I redeemed my free Sephora birthday offer, enjoyed some frozen yogurt, and browsed some of the stores.

Gymboree had 40% off store-wide (regular priced items) and an EXTRA 30% off all hard-marked tags (discounted). Plus I had a 20% off coupon from the last Family Fun magazine – found some kid’s pajamas for about $7-8 a pair! You can also earn $25 in Gymbucks for every $50 you spend, to redeem in late September.

Uwajimaya-Asian-Food-And-Gift-Market

Then my favorite part – we headed to Uwajimaya – the most awesome Seattle-based Asian grocery store ever – they have lots of products our family likes, but can’t find locally. And their prices are great.

Yesterday we watched the Seahawks lose (boo hoo) at a family football party (Seahawks crock-pots were in FULL force!) and we enjoyed the beautiful sunny weather yesterday evening. My goodness, this weather just keeps on impressing with summer like temps and what feels like constant sunshine! My son was gifted some secondhand roller skates so we tested those out – busting just one ceramic flower pot (oye!) and my shins . .  .well they may never be the same again. We’ll keep at it and he’ll get it eventually. I remember being dropped off at the roller skating rink for hours as a kid – it’s what we did in the 80’s!  :) Did you grow up rollerskating?

Statue-of-Liberty

Good morning! How are you today? I’m thinking of all my east coast readers this morning and everyone else who has, or was, impacted directly by 9/11 – can’t believe that it’s been 13 years already. My husband and I had the lucky fortune to win a sweepstakes a few years ago and won a trip to New York City. What an amazing city – I want to go back. From Central Park to the Statue of Liberty, Broadway to the Brooklyn Bridge – it’s a one-of-a-kind city community. It certainly seems to embody the American people and all the many cultures that make this country so special. Thinking of you all today. :)

Making-Brownies-sweet-girl-r-s

Yesterday my sweet girl and I baked brownies. We also painted her nails, played with the chickens in the backyard, went for a walk, and ended the day watching Old Yeller (the 1957 version, thanks to Netflix). I’m grateful for days like yesterday. What are you grateful for today? 

Tonight for dinner is going to be simple – tossing some chicken breasts and barbecue sauce into the crockpot. We’ll serve it shredded on hoagie rolls. What’s for dinner at your place today?

Chicken-Santa-Fe-crockpot-sept-9

Good morning! How are you today? Did you have a good day yesterday? Yesterday we had Chicken Santa Fe for dinner, from the slow cooker – so easy and delicious. I only had one can of black beans, so I substituted a bag of frozen santa fe vegetables (black beans, corn, onions, bell peppers) and it turned out great. I also didn’t put the cheese in until serving – and found that it still tasted awesome and I think it was fewer calories, because you can just sprinkle your serving with cheese instead of having it added to the crockpot. It can be served in a burrito shell, with chips, on a salad or on rice. We should have enough leftovers for meals today!

Best-Amazon-Toy-Deals-December-17

Speaking of kids, yesterday I rolled out the epic Best Amazon Toy Deals list for this winter. It’s still early, so the deals are light. But by October Amazon will have it’s toy lightning deals in full swing and we’ll see some of the best toy prices of the year. You can read some of the comments from readers on Facebook who shopped the list last year.  Comments include:

  • I did 80% of my toy shopping thru your list last year. Thank you for keeping me away from the crazy malls
  • I scored amazing deals both for me and my parents from your Amazon Toy Deals list… Thank-you!
  • Woohoo! Because of you, my Christmas shopping was affordable and awesome. I work 12-14 hour days and Amazon helped me spend time on activities and not shopping! Thank you!!!!!!!
  • Omg! I checked this daily. Got so many amazing deals. Best ones were the Skylanders and Leap Pad!
    I logged in hourly to make sure I didn’t miss stuff right around Black Friday!!!
    Can’t wait for you to start this up again. You’ve saved me hundreds of dollars. No joke!
  • I bought most of my kids Xmas gifts through your list last year! Legos were our biggest deals. We love when legos are on sale!

I’m telling you – this Best Amazon Toy Deals list is epic. :) I’m sure Amazon won’t disappoint again this year and we’ll find such amazing deals on toys and other deals that we’ll all be giddy. Last year I was about to purchase nearly $700 worth of toys for about $250 thanks to this list that we donated to local non-profits – all thanks to this list. I’m hoping to do this again this year!!!

Dirty-faces-summer-running

Good morning!! Hello, Monday. How was your weekend? Did you do anything fun? We had fun (see photos on Instagram) but mostly just soaked in the sun and spent time around the house. With 80-90 degree weather the kids played in the yard, a lot. Dirt. Mud. Running. Games. We all slept good at night!

Amazon-Subscribe-Save-orders-September-500

My September Amazon Subscribe and Save order was delivered Friday through Sunday and I shared all about it this weekend. Admittedly, the amount of toilet paper is a bit ridiculous, but we have room in the garage to store it and the price was right. Do you do Subscribe and Save? 

Fill-A-Bucket-A-Guide-to-Daily-Happiness

This weekend the kids and I read this book, Fill a Bucket: A Guide to Daily Happiness for Young Children, and I really liked it. It talks about how each and everyone of us is born with a bucket. Every time we are around others – we have the opportunity to fill their buckets. Being kind, helpful, loving – these things fill the buckets of others. When our bucket is full, we feel joy. When we fill the buckets of others – they feel joy! We have long told our kids that every interaction they have with others is an opportunity to build them up – to make them feel BETTER and this book illustrated it in a way that resonated with my kiddos (ages 7 and 4). Last night when tucking my son into bed, we talked about how we can fill the buckets of our friends and teachers at school. We hugged and my son said, “Mom, your hugs fill my bucket.” Be still my heart.  I just smiled, hugged him again, and told him he filled my bucket, too.  It’s an offshoot of this book, How Full Is Your Bucket?, which I read in 2004 – the adult version of the concept, and also a great book to read. If this sounds like something you’d like you should check out your local library.

Chicken-Chili-Grandmas-Rolls

Good morning! Happy Friday! How are you doing today?  Last night we watched the Seahawks game and enjoyed a big batch of Quinoa Chicken Chili and I made my grandma’s homemade rolls (which my kids go crazy for!). I cooked the chili in my NFL Seahawks crockpot, which I’m now affectionately calling the Hawk-Pot, because things like that amuse me. The 25% off code is still working on NFL crockpots, if you want one for your favorite team. I’m thrilled that we have leftovers for tonight – no cooking for me!

Some of the BEST deals for these sales are the unadvertised ones – and I spent an hour yesterday typing those up as part of this post.  We have more unadvertised deals coming later this morning.  . .so many super deals! Did you go to QFC yesterday? I’d love to hear how your Mega Shopping trip went!

Back-to-school-first-grade

Good morning! Thank you for all the birthday wishes yesterday! It was a great day. My son had his first day of First grade (yay!) and my daughter and I spent the day together. We stopped into QFC (more on that later), picked up a Redbox and watched a movie, took an afternoon nap and spent the day puttering around the house. Last night I picked up my favorite Indian food (Curry Corner in Lacey) and I was in bed by 10. It was perfectly delightful.

What are your favorite tailgating recipes? Leave me a comment and let me know! 

NFL-floor-mats-teams-NFL

Not a Seahawks fan? I get it. I realize everyone has a favorite team. Just so you know – I am NOT a I-hate-every-other-team-kinda-person. I love the Seahawks and I love football and I appreciate good sportsmanship. So I’m hoping when I get all jazzed about the #Hawks that it’s not in a way that offends others or makes them feel like it’s a slam on their favorite team. We’re just a bit batty around here – but in a way that would never judge other’s favorite teams. Because that’s just foul sportsmanship, isn’t it? So thanks for humoring me during football season and I would love to hear if you have recipes or party ideas for your favorite teams, too!  What team are you rooting for this year?

H-first-day-preschool-2014

Good morning! I’m starting to write this post at 3 a.m. this morning. I couldn’t sleep, so I figured I’d better get up and get some work done. The coffee is hot, the house is quiet and I’m on it. :)  We will have a different attitude around 2 p.m. today when I crash, but we’ll just go with it for now. Yesterday my sweet girl had her first day of preschool at a new school (she LOVED it) and today my son has his first day of First grade!

Room-Essentials-Bookcases-Cartwheel

Yesterday I spent the day with my son and we has some big projects to tackle. He’s been a bit spooked at night – waking up afraid of the dark and the night light we got him just wasn’t cutting it. So we decided that we’d work together to rearrange his room yesterday – moving his bed and furniture around, cleaning his closet and reorganizing things to hopefully change things up enough that he’d get a different perspective and hopefully calm some of his night time fears. We went to Target and picked up a couple bookshelves – using a 20% off Room Essentials bookcase Cartwheel and a 20% off Target  Room Essentials furniture printable coupon to get a smoking deal. Plus we used a 20% off lamp printable coupon to get him a new lamp (Seahawks blue!). Then we went over to Michael’s and used the 40% off coupon to get him a Seahawks poster – something that he loves to serve as a distraction if he wakes up spooked. For under $50 we have what feels like a completely new room and it was a special day putting it together with him. I’m happy to report he slept through the entire night (so far) without any issues. I’m hoping that this night time anxiety is just a manifestation of him being nervous about school and the changing of routine from summer to fall and that things will setting back in and we’ll all be getting better sleep soon. A clean, organized room is a positive side effect to a situation that’s been giving us a bit of angst lately. :)  I’ll see about sharing some pictures later.

And p.s. if you have a little one who might need a night light – I spotted Pillow Pets light up pillows at Ross for as low as $8.99! CRAZY super price and something that ends up on a lot of Christmas lists but deals can be rare during the winter. My local store had mostly girlish style pillows – pink unicorns, pink lady bugs, etc. But might be worth checking out if you’re in the market.

Turkey-Meatballs-Mozzarella-Stuffed-Turkey-Meatballs

Between the first day of preschool, a complete room overhaul, 1st grade open house and blogging – I was about two seconds away from ordering pizza for dinner last night. But thankfully I reconsidered and pulled these Mozzarella Stuffed Turkey meatballs out of the freezer – tossed into some marinara sauce and served with pasta and steamed vegetables. This easily saved us $30 and only took about 10 minutes – long enough to boil pasta and heat up the meatballs and sauce. What are your favorite freezer meals? 

Birthday-Freebies

And today I turn the ripe ole age of 34. It’s one of those birthdays that flies by because it seems to be during one of the busiest weeks of the year. I love this time of year – and wouldn’t change it for anything. I plan spend the day with my sweet girl who is home with me on Wednesdays, perhaps making a run to the grocery store, baking some cookies, take a nap, and I just might have the handsome husband pick up Indian food tonight – our favorite splurge. I am going to try and update our Birthday Freebies list this week – do you have any favorite birthday freebies that I should add?

Whew. I’m just a chatterbox when I wake up so early and drink all the coffee before my husband wakes up. :)  You still reading? Let’s get on to the deals. . .
