the day we spent $7.28

that's right, $7.28.

'on what?', you ask....

on

11 oranges
8 avocados
a 5 pound bag of potatos
a 2 pound bag of grapes
3 pounds of roma tomatoes
2 boxes of cinnamon toast cruch (my favorite)
3 boxes of frosted flakes



we used coupons found on this amazing blog
http://www.freebies2deals.com/

and then combined them with sales going on in all the grocery store ads from all the stores in provo- all their ads fill our mailbox constantly. and then we got them all at walmart. cause walmart price matches.

it was. amazing.

in other things...
lately damon and i have been working what seems like endless opposite shifts. when i'm home by myself i don't usually cook (though tonight i think it's time again for pioneer woman's tomato soup, it's been almost a week since i made it last and i've been craving it ever since...) and instead indulge in my favorite foods- ramen or spaghettio's with 'meatballs'. mmmmm... with chocolate chips on the side.


since we haven't seen each other nearly enough damon tries to come home on his short breaks- luckily he works less than a mile away- when i'm home so we can be together more. he eats a hasty snack, usually a quesadilla. if you don't buy costco's raw tortillas, you are eating those gross flour tortillas that come in 30 packs and taste disgusting and cardboard and flour-y.  do yourself the flavor of a lifetime and go raw. it takes less time to cook a raw tortilla then get a drippy paper towel ready to microwave the gross packaged ones. we buy them 40 at a time and go through them in 2 weeks. they are AMAZING!!!



check out that beard, eh? since march is 'mustache march' he's growing it all out so he can carve a masterpiece...

my best friend kami:

1. gave me an amaryllis for Christmas. it is getting HUGE and i can't wait for it to bloom. it turned into 2 blooms also, with another little guy starting up in between the 2, so i'm really hoping for 3 pretty flowers. it already reaches our kitchen window, it's like 2 feet tall!



2. also i went up to visit Kami one day in logan a couple of weeks ago and she made food for lunch and so the other night i decided to be just like her. see?



well, that's about it for the week, i'm gonna rest before my double tomorrow.  i love it when they allow us to pick up shifts for overtime, but then i hate working the shifts. especially 16 hours in one day. yuck.

Ok, I read that last line and forgot all my comments. 16 hour days? that's awful.

Um, I have to try this soup.

And I need to jump on this coupon band wagon.

NEVER in the 7 years I've grown amaryllises have I had 2 blossoms in one bulb! You lucky duck! Each blossom will probably have 4 flowers so you might end up with 8 pretty flowers! I'm glad she/he is growing. Does it have a name? You can always use Howie...
