What a beautiful day we had today. Our day was packed full of outdoor activities. Started off with Emily having soccer game, gardening, swimming in the pool, hammock up in the yard, camp fire and smores. What more could I ask for, any day with my amazing family is a good one.
Today was grocery shopping day and I love saving money! This is really my first time trying to use coupons with sale items to maximize savings. I have to admit it takes time. Time finding the coupons and printing them and then looking through sale ads. Anyway here it is: these items at regular price would have cost me $29.62 (wow that seems like alot for such a small amount of stuff) but with them being on sale and using coupons, I spent $14.72. Plus I received a Catalina for $3.00 back, so really spent $11.42. I'm soooo excited. (doesn't take much sometimes!)
I am Canadian and moved to the USA when I married my husband in 2001. I was born in Sarnia, Ontario and grew up there my whole life. I have two children and always joke with friends who tease me about being Canadian, that I am out ranked in my house because I live with three Americans. (Those three being my husband, daughter and son.) I like living here and don't find it any different than Sarnia. There are a couple things that are different though. We as Canadians do pronounce some words a little different, like "out" "pop" "about" etc. We also spell some words a little different, such as "jewellery" "centre" "fibre"etc. We are taught in Canada to speak and spell like the British and also have some French influence as well. My daughter Emily is five years old and I find it humorous when I say some of these "Canadian" words to her, she corrects me with the USA version. I have had some strange looks from her and corrections from Emily for my speech. I find this funny because I am one of the ones who taught her to speak. I guess I haven't had as much influence as I thought. So if you look at my blog and think oh my she can't spell, maybe true but maybe not, depending on which country you grew up in! ha ha ha lol

So I decided to start my own blog and still trying to figure it all out. So many things to learn. What should I call my blog? How do I post a message? Where does everyone find the gadgets? How do I add buttons? Oh where to start!
