Tonight after bath time I loaded them up and we went riding with a friend. As I was airing up the tires before we left, she snapped a few photos.

For breakfast we had:
12 ounces yogurt
a little honey and maple syrup
My fridge is almost looking bare. I haven't seen it like this in years....when we actually struggled to buy food. That's not the case now, but it's kinda funny to see an empty shelf. Maybe I can get it almost fully empty by the end of the week. At the rate we are going I think it will be empty. It will surprise the hubby for sure. He's very used to things falling out at him cause there isn't any room for it.
1 Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked or stand in the way of sinners or sit in the seat of mockers. 2 But his delight is in the law of the LORD, and on his law he meditates day and night. 3 He is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither. Whatever he does prospers. 4 Not so the wicked! They are like chaff that the wind blows away.
A verse we studied last night at bible study. Is your life like the chaff? When you stand before the Lord will you blow away like the chaff or stand firm like the tree planted near the streams of water, that flourish and grow fruit?

Last night Annabelle wanted to "go" so we packed up and went to the commissary.
I was very happy to see that they now carry Country Save Detergent! We use it on our cloth diapers, but ordering it online is about $18.99 per 10lb box, and you have to pay for shipping. The commissary carries it in 5lb. boxes for only $5.99! Huge savings! I also had 5 coupons for any Seventh Generation Product so I stocked up on their dish washing detergent (my fav. we've been using it for about 6 months now), and a bottle of non chlorine bleach. Plus some fruits and veggies for our green smoothies!

Sorry, I took this picture after I already ate one, so the plate is a little messy
I love her face...I don't know what she was doing
Now she is laughing cause I was laughing at her making faces.

Blending the fruit first
The verdict on the smoothies: They were actually good! I was really surprised! I have read about them for about two years now but thought, yuck! I am glad I finally caved in and tried them. It will become a treat we have several times a week. I was also equally surprised that the kids liked it. I didn't use any sweeteners and it was sweet and didn't taste anything like spinach.

Spent: $34.41 Saved:$63.25
I also get to send in for a $10.00 Rebate!
The best part of the trip is when I found many .50 off coupons for any Starbucks ice cream! They have the little ones for .50 each. I bought a case of them, and after coupons they were FREE! And the 22 packages of tuna they paid me to take home, .25 per pouch!

The Bacon was free after the $3.00/1 coupon here. Just sign up and you'll be redirected to a $3.00 coupon. You can print it twice by using the back button. I printed two from my computer and two from the man's computer.
I used many FLIPS(Food Lion Internet Printable coupons) to get the other stuff free or close to it. Visit www.afullcup.com and go to the Food Lion forum, if your new to it all.

All in all, I am trying to get back on a routine. The kids are loving being home. Which is a good thing, because generally they just want to go, go, go....wonder where they get that from.
