the day we spent $7.28

that's right, $7.28.

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


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

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...
