Randomness and CVS

Wow, I have been so busy that I did not get a menu done this weekend. Too be honest, I could not get it together! However, tonight my sixteen year old son, Seth, cooked dinner for us. He made the most delish whole wheat pasta dish. He loves to cook. He created this garlic butter white sauce with shrimp and added it to the pasta. Oh my goodness it was so yummy!! I told him that next time I would like to try some sauteed spinach and add some roasted walnuts or pine nuts to his mixture. M-m-m-m-m it was fantastic!

I am loving the weather today! Here in Central Oklahoma it was BEAUTIFUL!! Hardly any wind and the temperature was in the high 60s. I came home after work and exercised outside. I am so ready for spring!

This weekend my dear husband had his first experience with CVS! I had a bang up day on Saturday, some of which I shared on my blog post that day. However, we went to dinner with a sweet couple and afterwards we hit CVS in Oklahoma City. Eureka!!! I found all the Colgate toothpaste! Edmond was out of it but I found some and loaded up. My husband bought five and I completed my deal by buying the one I lacked. We found one Vitamin C, one Lypsyl, and some Blistex. We also bought some Tresamme. My out of pocket after coupons and ECBs was .61 cents. My husband floated me a loan. :) My husband did not have ECBs to use but he did have some coupons. His OOP was 18.00 but low and behold he got back....drum roll please......over 38.00 in ECBs!! He is SOLD on CVS! We hit another CVS on the way back home and racked up some bargains again. I will probably re-post this later in the week but will have pictures to share.

Right about now my children begin to get really tired of school. I think we have a Spring Break in March for a refresh and renew their minds. This year I am excited that at the end of the break we will celebrate our Risen Savior! What a wonderful way to end Spring Break!

My daughter and I will be headed down to Big D to see some friends in Flower Mound and of course shop a little. I am going to hit CVS while I am there but my big excitement comes from having the chance to hit grocery stores that we do not have here in Oklahoma. Kroger here I come! I am taking my coupons and headed down South to see if I can get some of those great items all ya'll talk about on your blogs!

Sorry about the randomness of this post. My brain is a little tired tonight! Blessings Ya'll!

Just think of what a catch your son will be! If he's able to cook a great meal at 16, he's going to have great girls crawling all over him at 22. Now if only you could convince him to let you choose the best one :).

Happy spring break! Happy Easter (He is Risen!)
