~We got a dresser yesterday. The in-laws are moving and it used to be DH's. I cleaned it up and it's now storing craft supplies. :D
Also, my mom brought over three boxes of PB chocolate wafers that I've been craving and haven't been able to find. Well, find cheaply anyway. I wasn't about to pay $3.50 a box for Little Debbie. :p My mama is the best!~

Whataburger gave away free burgers for their 60th anniversary a couple of days ago from 5 - 8 p. m. You just had to wear something orange. Hubby and I got two burgers for free and split a drink and fries that we paid for.

Every Whataburger had a line out the door and around the corner, but they moved really quickly.

Stopped at a veggie stand Monday and asked about peppers. WAY to high at the store. She said she didn't have any good enough to sell. She proceeded to GIVE me about 10 peppers, 2 bunches of bananas and a huge watermelon that was the best we'd ever had. Watermelon had about a 3 inch discoloration. Bananas were ripe and peppers were SLIGHTLY wrinkly. Wouldn't take a dime.

So far this month
1) 2 mocha frappes and 1 fruit smoothie from Mc Donald's. I was shocked to see the total before the coupons. It would of cost us over $7 Free much better
2) 1 kid's meal at Subway
3) Buddy won a $25 gift certificate to the local music store.

I also got $10 off $10 or more coupon to Jc Penney's in the mail
I also got $3 to use in store at Staples for recycling my used ink cartage
(kind of like free money KWIM)

Free medium coolatta at dunkin donuts with a coupon we had. My BF and I shared it because we rarely ever get those kind of drinks and know we won't drink a whole one by ourselves.

Wow! You'll need another pantry and/or fridge to keep all that in. I'm sure you'll miss your friend but what a good bye present!

Lynyrd Skynyrd and Charlie Daniels was in town last night so we parked our car and went for a walk one side of the stage was wide open (the stage was behind a fence on the waterfront which was not blocked off, there were lots of people sitting in the park so we sat in the other parking lot by the water and watched the concert .
2 quarts of blackberries
