The music was great though. Eric Church was incredible - absolutely loved him! And of course Jason Aldean was amazing too. I think he played 14 songs or something ridiculous like that and every song that I loved which made all the BS with the venue worth it. I definitely fell asleep on the way home which, according to Dan, cemented my status as "old lady" :)

I had to break this trip into 3 transactions in order to maximize the Register Rewards which is why the body wash screwed me up so much! It was my first transaction and everything else relied on the $3 Reward that they gave me.
(3) Scotch Tape
(2) Gillette Bodywash
(1) Old Spice Bodywash
(2) Colgate Iso Action Toothpaste
Used $3 RR from Transaction #1
(3) Scotch Tape
(1) Glad Force Flex Trash Bags
Used $4 RR from Transaction #2
Total Before Coupons: $50.24
Total OOP: $7.66
Total savings was $42.58 or 85%.

Anyway, I'm mostly excited to see Jason Alden because well...he's awesome. But the rest of the lineup is great too so it will be a really fun and exciting day.
My little family has been sick this week and as I'm typing this Dan is in a NyQuil induced coma lol. It all started with David Monday night. He woke up at 10 pm and was talking to himself for a good 15 minutes before I went in to check on him. The poor boy was burning up. Took him to the doctor the next morning and was told it was a virus and an obviously nasty one. Even after tylenol his temperature had only dropped to 102.1 and that was an armpit temp. He bounced back in 48 hours but those couple of days were tough on him. Dan has been trying to fight it off all week but is definitely feeling the effects. I'm praying he feels better by Saturday so he can enjoy the concert.
I am planning a couponing trip to Walgreens tmw so if I make it I will update with how I did. Otherwise, have a great weekend!!!

Pictured is 2 Zantac Boxes, 1 Nail Polish and a Bottle of Calcium Vitamins
Total prior to coupons: $23.37
Actual Spend: $0.93
That puts my day 1 savings at $22.44 or 96%.
Not bad but it could have been much better. Seems like I couldn't find all of the sales which was frustrating but still got good deals none-the-less.

On another note - I picked up some Capri Sun Roaring Waters for daycare. Ever since we switched to this daycare David has had issues with dirty diapers. I think it is the amount of juice that he gets and I understand it is hard to tell him no when the other kids can have juice boxes. So I'm really hoping that with these we can get his belly back to where it needs to be. He's so excited to have a "box" that I don't think he cares what's in it!
David's vocabulary is growing by leaps and bounds everyday. It is so funny to hear him use words for the first time - they always catch us off guard. Saturday, I stubbed my two and let out a good, loud s**t and without missing a beat David repeated it back to me and kept on with his business. Oops, such a bad Mommy! But I learned my lesson!

I am seriously tore up about David's 2nd birthday. It's surprising because his 1st birthday didn't phase me much - I was more excited about it than upset. But now as his 2nd birthday is creeping up on me I'm realizing that the time is not going to slow down. He's talking, running, comprehending, making decisions...in a few years he will begin school. The time has passed too quickly and even though we savor almost (some of the stubbornness I could do without) every moment it still feels like a haze.
Pity party over :) So the birthday invitations should be here on Wed. and since they are postcards the smallest number I could get was 100. What am I going to do with 100 birthday invitations lol!!!! I can't complain since they only cost me $20 but I don't want to waste them. Maybe I can find something creative to use them for.
Tomorrow David gets his forehead fixed and then Friday the wedding festivities begin!!! Cannot wait for Kelly's wedding, it is going to be such a great time. Just hoping I don't fall off my shoes walking down the aisle!
Have a great Monday everyone!
