Bow Tie Blanket

Here is what the blanket looks like. The first picture is how it looks spread out the second is how it looks up close of the bows.This is a bow tie fleece blanket. All the bows are hand sewn on. I chose Nebraska Husker fabric because she is a fan of huskers and because i thought it was neat to see a pink Husker fabric instead of red. 

The Hancocks Fabric store is where i got the fabric. I went to the one on 84th ? It's by Mangelsons. I prefer the smaller one in council bluffs, because they usually have a nicer selection of fabric.


How are you today ?

I'm recovering from being sick. I got sick from running in cold air and having an asthma attack. What an idiot i can be sometimes. So i didn't chase any wonderful sales this weekend. I just bought a few things on sale and came home and got back into my bed. I finally forced myself to wash towels so my daughter could take her shower last night. 

Before i got sick i was working on a blanket to take to my neighbor that is in the nursing home. I wanted to give her something nice to still maybe perk her up while she is in there instead of flowers which will die. I'll post that in a second.

Update of daughter being sick

As i expected nothing more than allergies. Too bad the nurses would not listen to me and just let me give her, her medicine for it. Dr. said just allergies- strep test came back negative. Now my daughter's perfect attendance is not so perfect anymore. And poor thing was so heart broken.

Un expected shopping trip

I received a phone call today from school that my daughter is sick. So, i will have to make an un expected shopping trip tonight. All her hard work for perfect attendance is gone. I am so sad over it but not as sad as her. All kids who make perfect attendance get a FREE bike and helmet. She has just worked so hard for it and now all gone. She's cried today and begged me not to make her come home but i made them take her temp 1 more time once i got there to make sure.  It's such a big deal because she was sick 32 days last year and 40 something the year before. She has severe allergies & asthma.

I'll let you know how things go tonight. I will be paying out of pocket for the Dr. visit and medicine.

Oh my what a hectic weekend. My computer crashed when i bought this new keyboard yesterday and i have been having a hard time getting it up and ready. Thank goodness for my wonderful husband who knows how to fix computers, lol. I did lose everything i had on it though. Which makes me very sad because i had a lot of pictures, all my coupon class info and handouts. All my printable coupons that were in pdf form. Everything, it makes me sick and sad. Good news is at least my pc was fixable aand not completely broke.

I also received some sad news yesterday. My all time favorite cashier is leaving Walmart. I tell you it took me a very long time to find someone i like, and now he is leaving. I enjoy him as my cashier because he is extreamly nice, funny and does all my coupons right and my price matching right. So i will miss you Don :0( But good news is he is not leaving right away. I sure hope he found my blog when i gave him my site yesterday, so we can stay in touch. He had told me he had a different interest for his career. He will be moving on to become a nurse. I know he will be a great nurse because he just has awesome people skills.

I'll post my shopping trips later.

My coupon box has been receiving a lot of attention lately. When i was at Walgreens, a lady commented on it and of course i told her about my site :0) I also tell people about HCW.

Oh, today has been a much better day for me. Whew, no more fruit roll up scarfs, lol not as much fighting. 

I have been helping my neighbor. She fell yesterday and hurt her foot. Now she will have surgery on it Tuesday. So i had been helping her. I gave her my extra cordless phone. We weren't using it right now anyhow. I am washing 2 loads of laundry for her today and will wash probably 1 more before the weekend is over for her. I went and got her some groceries last night. I will probably make her a nice meal or 2 for this upcoming week. Some people ask why am i doing this ? I just ask myself this why would someone ask me that ? I am doing it because i am a good neighbor and a friend. Isn't that what neighbors and friends do for each other ? We help each other out.

Thursday 3/19/08

I hope all is well with you today! Today is a hectic day so far. Kids keep fighting over everything and then my daughter decided she would wear a YoGo's fruit roll up as a scarf. Not sure if you have had them but they are really sticky and really soft. I have no idea why an 8 yr old would do this. She said she just wanted to wear it like a scarf. Oh my, i see how today will go, lol. 

How is your day going ??

Sorry about not posting yesterday. I have been feeling kinda sluggish this week. I received word that Pamida is going to double coupons.

March 7th-13th they will double up to $1 in coupons. They will not accept Internet Printed coupons though.
I find there store to be over priced but i have been able to get a couple deals there before. Once they had Betty Crocker Pumpkin Muffins and Cranberry Orange Muffins for $1 a box i had $.55 off coupons so i got 4 boxes of muffins for FREE. So if i am out that way again during this time i may venture in there. Otherwise it's not worth a drive for me.

Wednesday, March 4, 2009


Hello all, i hope all is well with you. Yesterday i made some choc. chip muffins, everyone ate them.

I had only 1. I didn't like them. Never use that recipe again, lol.

We ended up having Chicken & Bacon BBQ Tacos last night instead. They turned out yummy. I will fix again. I just hate spending all that time cooking the bacon. 

Have you heard ? REDBOX is now offering FREE Movie Rentals on Wed. too!

My Coupon Box

Often times i am asked what do i hold my coupons in ? This is my coupon box. Nothing fancy and certainly not special to others. Special enough for me though since it serves my purpose and it only cost me $1.99 I have had my box now for over 1 yr and it is still doing well.

What do you hold your coupons in ?
