Register here and tell Congress that it is time to take action regarding Health Insurance.

Tightwad Tuesday

I love Tightwad Tuesday, it makes me think about what Frugal thing I can post about. A couple of weeks ago I mentioned using a jug of ice to help keep your fridge cool.
This week my topic is cooking on the grill. We use a charcoal so it is more prep time to get it ready to use. Therefor, when we grill I like to have several things ready to cook, planning for other nights, so I can have some great grilled burgers or chicken for another meal. This saves time and energy by not having to use my oven to cook something. Please outdoor cooking can be great family time.

Free Samples

New Walmart sample available! Get a FREE sample of Platex Gentle Glide Tampons! Just here and click on the "choose your sample" link. You will then be able to choose between Platex Slender or Ultra. Let's hope these samples come with coupons too! Allow up to 4 weeks for delivery.

As many of you know my oldest daughter went to prom Saturday night. Not hers, she is just a sophomore, but a friend of hers. They had a wonderful time. Prom in our town has come a long way since I was in school. They met at a friends house for pictures at 2:00, to high school for more pictures, out of town to dinner back to high school to promenade by 7:30. Prom lasted until 12:00.

It was a very long day but they really had fun. As far as I know everyone arrived back home safely.

Our daughter:

All three of our girls:

Our daughter and her date:

The whole group at one of the girls houses.

The whole group at prom. New York was the theme:

These pictures don't come close to letting you know how beautiful all of these girls really were. The decorations were beautiful, the weather was rainy, but I don't think it mattered once everyone was setteled in at prom.

Just wanted to share a few photos with you.
