Rise and Shine is my way of sitting down and having a cup of coffee with you! We talk about the new deals of the day, highlights from yesterday, and anything else that might help us save time, money or energy. Published Monday through Friday – as I’m able.
Good morning! I’m getting a late start this morning. We were bombarded by a series of thunderstorms last night and I was up a lot of the night from the thunder and lightning. Storms are always so much more fun when you’re in a normal house. Handsome husband left early this morning to take clothes to the laundromat – and I’ve been on a bit of a cleaning spree – happens once in a while and I have to go with it, ha! And we had another beautiful sunrise over Lake Erie this morning (see photo above).
I had a great birthday yesterday – thank you so much for all the birthday wishes! We started the day early at the River Raisin National Battlefield Park. We did a Geocache scavenger hunt as part of the Junior Ranger badge program. It was a lot of fun. You go from place to place around the battlefield – using a GPS unit – learning as you go. For dinner last night we went to a local Mexican restaurant (thanks to a Yelp recommendation) and I think I had the best fajitas I’ve ever had.
Today we head to Ohio for a night, then on to Pennsylvania and we have a reservation in Western New York on Sunday night. It’s Labor day so I’m sure traffic will be interesting and campgrounds will be full. Whatever you are doing this weekend – stay safe and have fun!
One of the things I miss about being on the road and having my mail forwarded is getting celebrity gossip magazines – I know it’s horrible, but I do enjoy them. This is probably the BEST deal I’ve ever seen on Star magazine – when you purchase TWO years you’ll pay only $17.99 with code QUEENBEE at checkout. This comes out to $8.99 a year – with 52 weekly issues, this comes out to only $0.17 cents an issue – such a great price! This offer expires at Friday 09/04/15 11:59 PM EST.
We won’t be getting coupon inserts in the Sunday paper this Sunday, September 6, 2015. This only happens a few times a year – but it’s a great chance to get caught up or take a weekend off.
