On the First Day of Spring

Yesterday I went shopping without a jacket and today I will wear a scarf and coat to go out in the snow. Such is life in Michigan. We are going to the farm to get our milk this morning and then probably head back into cleaning/organizing/hibernation zone. The attic is done with only little touch-ups needed. I want it to be perfect before I do a little video... 

In the meanwhile, enjoy this video. It makes me laugh so much.

Free Stuff with Coupons to Giveaway!

Today's freebie was an extra good one in my book. Generally, the samples I get in the mail are single-use sizes, which I am fine with--there is nothing better for travel than the small packets--but today was a surprise.

Pantene sent me a whole bottle of their new shampoo! I don't need it just yet, but when I run out of my current supply, I look forward to trying something new.

If you're interested in giving it a try yourself, let me know and I will send you a coupon. In the package I received, there were also three $2 coupons--a pretty good value! First three to ask will get them in the mail this week. Happy Shampooing!

Photo Shoot

We had the privilege a couple months ago to do a photo shoot with a good friend. Randall had never had professional shots taken and we also wanted to get some good family pics in before the arrival of #2.

Laurie did an absolutely amazing job and I completely teared up when I was looking through all the gorgeous shots she took. I'll try to post a few here and there for your viewing pleasure.

Seriously, give her a call for your next photo session!

Because Everyone Deserves Free Coffee

Dunkin' Donuts. Dunkin' keeps me blogging. Try Dunkin' Donuts Coffee For Free. Get a Sample

I love signing up for free stuff. At least once a week, something arrives in the mail that I did not pay for. And I'm not talking about junk mail, though I get some of that too.

A couple weeks ago, I was grocery shopping and the lady in front of me had a fantastic square freezer bag. It stood up on its own, held a large amount of groceries and kept them cold in the process. Perfect! I have a few from Aldi that are quite large as well, but are beginning to fall apart as I have had them for several years.

It was literally the next day that I received the perfect freezer bag in the mail. I sign up for so many samples and free things that I just don't remember what I'm getting half of the time. This was a Baskin Robbins sponsored bag and exactly what I needed.

If you don't already follow Free Stuff Times, you should. There are daily free things to sign up for and samples to receive. I have a junk email that I never check that I use to sign up for these things.

Today, go get yourself a sample of coffee!
