Our Baptism!!

Monday, April 13, 2009

We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life. ROMANS 6:4
On Saturday Kelsey and I were both baptised at St. Marys Church, the same church that Luke and I will be married at in less than a month, by the same priest that will marry us. It was a beautiful service that was full of readings and music. At the beginning those to be baptised wore gray robes, and after we were baptised we changed into white robes to symbolize being washed clean of sin. Part of the service was candlelight which was very pretty, but it did make lots of people sleepy. (it started at 8:30pm and lasted 3 hours!)
It was a very special night and even more special because I was able to share it with my daughter. We have been preparing and waiting for this for over 6 months, so we were both very excited! We love our church and are so happy to be new members!!!

No more Junk in our Trunk!!

Grocery Savings...

Sunday, April 5, 2009

Ok, I have been very careful about my spending, and have been very aware of what things cost, and have been using coupons religiously! Here are some of my savings today!
My first stop was Walgreens. Walgreens has a monthly rebate program. I had 18.69 from my March rebate. My grand total was $81.89. With sales, coupons and my rebate I paid $28.25 for both pics below! The make-up itself is worth more than $28.25.

Next, I went over to CVS...my total there was 49.23. (before coupons it was 83.00)I did spend more than I did at Walgreens, but I got more expensive items. I forgot how much diapers and wipes were! (they are for my sister) Plus look at all of that Aussie hair stuff I got!! Yippy!! And the best part is I got $19.49 back in Extra Care bucks for my next purchase!!!

Someone Junk is hopefully anothers treasure!

So like I said last week Im having a garage sale this coming weekend! Since we will be moving in with Luke in less than a month, I decided it's time to do a little spring cleaning! Looks like I have never cleaned out closets before! And this is just the first load! I have at least one, maybe two more!!
