Good morning! How’s your coffee or tea this morning? Mine is hitting the spot!
As of this morning, I’m only 37 people away from 20,0000 Queen Bee
fans friends on Facebook - I can hardly believe it and I think we’ll have to come up with some fun giveaways to celebrate this milestone. What do you think we should give away? Grocery store gift cards, Amazon gift cards, hotels/travel? I’d love to hear your ideas! And, of course, if you haven’t yet – head over to the Queen Bee Facebook page and check it out!
My parents left back to Alaska last night after a four-day visit. Things were a little hit or miss for me blogging – but I was so happy to spend some time with them! If you’ve ever thought about taking a trip to Alaska you can request this free Alaska Travel Guide – it’s pretty sweet and if anything, fun to look through.
Both my kids have nasty coughs that kept them (and us) up the last few nights, so I’m hoping they (and we) get some relief from it soon. We’ve elevated the heads of beds, we’ve done the homeopathic menthol rubs, honey water and all the tricks they say should work. I’m ready for spring time – when everything dries up, including these runny noses and icky colds.
Did you see the chicken coop I posted yesterday? From the Green Family in Buckley, Washington. I think it’s very charming. You can see a photo of the inside and learn more here.
We watched the Downton Abbey Christmas episode last night and the first episode of Season 3. We are still in love with the story line and characters. On January 29 Masterpiece Classic: Downton Abbey Season 3 DVD (Original U.K. Version) is released and it’s currently selling for $24.99 on Amazon. You can also stream on the PBS website and in Comcast on-demand.
If you get World Market emails – check your inbox! You should have a coupon for 49% off any single, regularly priced item. Yowzaaa! (Thanks, DeAnn!) Looks like it’s only for current email subscribers – you can subscribe here and then you won’t miss the next one!
The Super Bowl is one week away. If you haven’t yet – make your menu plan today. This way you can take a look at this week’s sales and decide if you want to pick up the ingredients before the new ads start Wednesday. If it’s on sale this week – pick it up. Try to build your list of food choices by what’s on sale, instead of what sounds good – you’ll save more money that way. What do you typically serve on Super Bowl?
It’s kind of a big coupon weekend! With four coupon inserts in this morning’s newspaper you will definitely get your money’s worth if you pick up a few extra papers today.
