A Modern Day Fairy Tale

Faith. Family. Fiction. Fun.


I haven't linked up for WILW with Jamie for awhile, but on this gloomy, rainy, meltdown in the grocery store kinda Wednesday...it seems like a good time to stop and remember all the wonderful things I have to love!! So this week I'm loving:

$35 in Coupon Savings this week! That seems like a good place to start! If you know me well, you know I'm cheap. Haha. I'm not an extreme couponer by any means, but I am pretty thrifty. On average, I save about $20 a week, so this week was pretty impressive to me. (Though I was stocking up on a few items that I had GREAT coupons for that were going to expire soon!)

The wonderful package I received in the mail! Last week, I got an e-mail from Atomic Betties telling me that I'd won her vintage Pyrex giveaway!!! As you might remember if you've been reading long, I have a nice little collection displayed in my kitchen. I LOVE it!!! And she included a few more fun goodies in the box as well...like an apron! (I collect aprons as well!!) What a wonderful thing to come home to on this yucky day!!! Thanks so much to her for this awesome prize!!!

I am loving that Shaun has slowly been less upset about going to school. He still protests in the morning, but the last few days, he hasn't cried when I dropped him off! Whew! It is heartbreaking to see him so sad, so I'm happy to see him glad to be there again!!!!

I am loving my wonderful husband, and knowing that we are only a few short months away from this deployment being over for GOOD!

And finally I am loving all the support from everyone who has been voting for me for the Circle of Moms Top 25 Military Family Blogs! Voting ends on the 25th, so it's not over yet, but so far I've held onto a spot!!


  1. The challenges of being a Mom... Such a nice family you have. Good luck

  2. Awww! I love that the package arrived on a day you needed a pick me up! I hope it helped. The prize couldn't have gone to a nicer person!
