Sale Ads and Family Fun

What a weekend! I feel like I have been gone forever. My family and I visited Pickett State Park in Jamestown, TN. We had a wonderful time! But when you have family fun you also have complete exhaustion... So I am REALLY getting a late start today. The picture that you see is on the right is the lake that is in the park, taken by ME while in a canoe! I have only been in a canoe TWICE in my life time. Once about 13 years ago and then this time. If not for my ten year old son I don't know that I would have survived this trip. He did a great job steering the boat, although I did help him hit the shore SEVERAL times he just kept on going. Cub/Boy Scouts is a wonderful thing! The picture on the left (I wanted the picture to go HERE but this thing has a mind of it's own) is of a lizard that the kids caught in the water. Can you guess who is HOLDING the son again! Although my daughters where holding them as well, just didn't get a picture of that...oh well, maybe next time! Now for what you guys really came here for. I have to start out with, I was REALLY tired yesterday when we got home so I might have missed some things so I am sorry. As the week goes on I am SURE that you guys will point out what I missed! ;)
First of all, make sure to get rid of all your "expired" coupons. As I went through my book yesterday I just kept pulling, and pulling, and pulling those 5/31/09 coupons out that I hadn't gotten around to using. Such a depressing time...:( But anyway, I am sure that those slots will be filled again in no time.
Parade magazine: Don't forget to look through the Parade Magazine that comes out on Sunday. There was a coupon for pet products AS WELL as $10 off of $50 apparel at Sears.

  1. From the photograph, the lizard looks more like a salamander....
    I'm so glad you get to do these trips. Those memories last forever!

  2. Beautiful photo! Looks like a great place!

  3. Hi! I would like to open beauty salon. Does anybody have an experience in this business? There are too many options in different salon equipment. Could anybody give me an advise? What store is more reliable to buy Yellow salon chairs and Salon chair parts. I'm choosing between Advance-Esthetic.Com and Spa&Equipment websites.
