These are a few of my favorite things..

bum bah nah bum bah bah….that song and movie are a few of my favorite things and Paige and I have a funny video of Ashley and I proving it in Austria!

This blog post though is about a few of my other favorite things!
1) Saving money! I love to save money. JJ loves a special kind of cereal, but he never has any because I only like to buy things when they are on sale and I have a coupon for them. They are usually $4.25 a box, but tonight I was able to get him 3 boxes of cereal, 3 bags of shredded kraft cheese, Breyers ice cream and cookies for $11! I got all of those groceries for less than what I would have paid for the cereal alone!
I have the same rule for all items in our house though, even my favorites! Case in point….the dressing pictured below! I love it!! Mike, JJ’s Dad, had it for us while we were home over Christmas. I am just now getting to eat it because it finally went on sale and I had a coupon!! YAY!!
2)Coupons! Saving money is easy with coupons…and that is why coupons are one of my favorite things as well! My good friend Ashley Sue knows how much I love coupons and that’s why when we get together for our coffee dates every week or so she brings me the extra coupons she has!!
3)Nutella! – This time Ashley Sue also surprised me with Nutella! JJ and I love Nutella! I’m even more excited about Nutella because Ashley Sue sent me the recipe below for Nutella Cheesecake that I can’t wait to try!

    • Luckily, JJ handles it pretty well! I hear about it once in awhile, but other than that he’s pretty patient! I usually try to come up with good alternatives too that are on sale until what he really wants is on sale! Next skype maybe we can have a good talk about patience! 🙂
