willowToday is a very happy day around here as we have become the foster family to a very sweet, 3-month old puppy named Luna. We are fostering with plans to adopt and I think she is going to fit right in around here.

She loves to play- she’s very loving and good-natured. She is super-cute with very-perky ears and has entertained us quite a bit already. She is making us laugh with her antics- especially going up to the mirror and barking at her reflection.

My son Austin is so thrilled and he’s loving running around the yard playing with her. She played with him until she passed out and I’m grateful that my nine-year old has lots of energy to keep her busy and exercised!

It’s been a long time since we’ve had a dog and we are just super-happy around here today and wanted to share! :-D

austin-1st-day-school-2014Today was my son Austin’s 1st Day of Fourth Grade! Time sure does fly! I started TT back when he was only 4 years old- so it’s hard to believe he is now 9 and headed for 4th grade!

Where does the time go? Where did the summer go? It all goes by too fast, and the new school year is here. Here’s hoping my son gets home this afternoon with a smile on his face and some great things to tell me. He was completely confident heading out today though- so that makes me feel great. He was excited but calm and cool and looking forward to meeting his new teacher and classmates.

 I know some of you have children who have already begun school and I hope it’s going well. And for those about to start- I wish the same. :)  I hope everyone has a great 2014-2015 school year!

flag22While Memorial Day may be filled with barbecues and be a welcoming sign of the start of summer just around the corner, more importantly it is a day to honor those who have died in service to our country.

I’d also like to send out a big Thank You, to all veterans, and to those who serve, to protect our country, and also to their families – who make such big sacrifices.

Here’s wishing all the Moms out there a very happy Mother’s Day! I’ve gotten some beautiful cards from hubby & son and a few more plants. For some strange reason I guess they still believe there is a chance that I can get one of these things to survive. :) I hope all the Moms out there get a chance to get spoiled a little bit today and enjoy time with your families. Happy Mother’s Day!

I brought home 2 Target comment cards with me on Sunday to fill out and it reminded me that I have not posted this in a while, so I thought I would post again.

We couponers sometimes have to have a thick skin since some cashiers can leave us feeling sub-human for using our coupons. So if you are anything like me – having a great cashier that is friendly, and super-patient with your coupons can leave you wanting to give them a hug or go home and bake them a batch of cookies. :)

But to show your gratitude, one of the best things you can do is fill out a comment card. Many retailers don’t allow any kind of gifts or other shows of appreciation, but a comment card is something you can do at Target, and it won’t get anyone in any trouble.

If you are unfamiliar with them- they can be found at Guest Services and they are also kept up at the registers in many stores. If you are happy with the service you get, think about taking a moment to fill out one of these cards to show your appreciation. I am very thankful for Target employees who take the time to try and understand coupons and how they can be used as opposed to those who loathe them and make you well aware that they are hating every moment you are in line.

So if you’d like to offer up more than just a simple “Thank You” when you are done checking out- grab one of these cards and give a great review of your cashier.  You can either hand it in at the store- or drop it in the mail and they are sure to be grateful for the positive comments!
