Happy Birthday!!!!!

It's my baby Griffin's 3rd birthday today.

In celebration of his birthday, we are starting out the day at Ikea for breakfast, then braving the mall to get him a new pair of Crocs.

You get some fab goodies too :) Hooray!

This morning I learned out about a fabulous deal from Stretching a Buck blog. Well, originally Fantacy pointed me towards it. Kudos to her for this fab hook-up!
I always love finding a great bargain! Anyone that personally knows me, knows I love fabulous quality bargains. So, Stretching the Buck is a super fab and as it's name suggests, it's ideal for finding ways to save money AND it's having a giveaway - a $25 Kroger g.c. this week!!! How cool is that?! Just click HERE for more details and your chance (or 3) to win ;)

The fab Stretching a Buck blog also taught me how to sign up for e-coupons. Oh my! These are the coolest things. No more clipping coupons. Well, with me, I might clip, but then I always forget to take them to the store. They are automatically linked to my Fry's card (part of Krogers) and can be combined with Kroger's Short-cuts e-coupons, along with their special weekly offers too. The sidebar also has hook-ups to her favorite frugal blogs and coupon sites.

AND......... one more goodie..........
I blogged over the weekend with a large freebie paper pack... be sure to grab it

sorry for being a ghost lately

gosh... I haven't been too active with my poor blog lately.

I'm sorry to all of you.. ( a little forgiveness gift below)

I have no idea what kept me away last week, but this week we've been super busy since it's Fall Break from school. We've gone to the park, the zoo, the pool, and misc errands... plus, I've been working every single night.

Besides all the running around with that stuff, I finally had my appearance in court for the dog attack I witnessed last April. It was one scary dog attack too. I was the only person who witnessed the very beginning how it happened.

the following is from my April 18th blogging:
yesterday morning I was a witness to a dog attack close to my house at a greenbelt
well, it really opened up my eyes about having my guard up when we see dogs when we are out for a walk
I was over at the big patch of grass that dips down... Hudson wanted to play "chase me" & I'm so glad we didn't get started with that...........
there was a woman with 3 larger dogs resting on the smaller patch of grass on the opposite side of the sidewalk right there...... and another woman walking her two Yorkies through the big greenbelt and as soon as they got in the sight of the big dogs, one and then the other two took off for an attack..... (they were on a leash, but not a firm grasp & the owner was looking the other direction talking on the phone)................the attack dogs owner came to try and get her dogs and I ran over and pulled two of the big dogs off.... luckily a woman on the other side of the street came over to take care of my boys while they were screaming
when all was over... a nice woman driver took the little Yorkies to the vet... Nick is ok, but Nora had an intestinal issue with surgery and an infection last night, hopefully she recovers ok............. the owner had a chunk taken out of her arm.........I talked with her this morning, she had her first skin graft last night and will have to have another couple later
I stayed around for quite a while, the last witness...but I have no idea what happened with the attacking dogs... Animal Control was with with them when I left to take Hudson to school (the one that bit her was a Pit mix)
sooooooooooooooooooo.... now I am really going to have my guard up whenever I see dogs when we are out for a walk........please be aware of your surroundings... it only takes a brief moment with no warning for something like this to happen

anyway, the owner of the pit mix was given 7 citations, her dog was put to sleep in May... and she has been fighting 2 of the 7 citations since then.... Tuesday was finally the day in front of the judge... one of the citations she was fighting was about her not having control of her dogs... HELLO... she so didn't... it wouldn't have happened if she had control of them..........
I was released after my testimony so I don't know what the outcome was. I really need to call the prosecuter's office to check on it


I have one fabulous kit I released at Gotta Pixel recently which I haven't shown you yet...

introducing Penelope! a mini version of this was available at The Funky Playground during August's Teacher's Pet.......
but I've added a bunch and tweaked a few others.. and now it's for sale
