In the kitchen!

A few weeks ago I couponed for 40 free cucumbers with the idea of pickling every single one of them. And that is what I did. I looked up a copious amount of recipes and ended up using just two. These pickled cucumbers are delicious!

What I also made that week was dehydrated bananas, strawberries and tomatoes.

These turned out really good! I threw them in with some Spanish rice. So good.

These were NOT the bananas chips I envisioned and ended up being wolfed down my pugs. I hate wasting food and they were healthy for them so why not?

Robin Williams

It's been a little over two weeks since Robin Williams took his life. I don't know about any of you but I am still in utter shock over this & I don't know when it will sink in. It makes me so incredibly sad that he and all the other people who have chosen to take their life felt that hopeless that they could no longer deal with what they had to deal with.

I didn't know I was a fan of so many of Robin's movies until I saw how many he was in. My husband was a huge fan of his and was very sad when I told him he had taken his life. He actually didn't believe me (not that I EVER joke about death), I think because it's just so confusing..someone who loved to make people double over in laughter was dealing with dark demons himself. Because Robin was a huge military supporter (LOVE when celebrities are big supporters of our US military)my husband was lucky enough to not only see him in Iraq but also shake his hand. Below are some his movies I've enjoyed that he's been in.

This movie is so, so funny. It's about a family of four who seem to be living different lives all under the same roof but the parents decide to rent an RV and take a road trip.

August Rush
This movie is about an orphaned young boy who is a musical prodigy..he meets up with the Williams character who is a bit sheisty.

Jumanji I remember the day I saw this movie in the movie theaters with my cousins. I've seen this movie so many times. It's about a kid who plays a boardgame that takes him to another world, a very unsafe world.

Aladdin Oddly enough I know the entire opening line to this movie. He played the genie as we all know.

One movie I did not like was 1 hour photo, while he did excellent in it (maybe too good because after seeing that movie I found him to be creepy, ha!) I just thought that movie was just way too creepy.

I would be remiss if I didn't include a suicide hotline number 1-800-273-8255 in this post to call if you feel this is the route you have to take.

My life through photos

I've been wanting to try this brand of burritos for awhile but not at $2.49 a pop. I finally was able to coupon for them for .25 each! They are natural and healthier than the other brands. They are decent :)

I made some cute notebooks a few weeks back!

LOVE sunsets.

I'm happy to say I think I fixed the issues I was having with Yahoo which was my comments on my blog as well as others bouncing back. Yahoo marked me as a bot & even after contacting them they gave me a 'bot' response with no help. Needless to say after having a yahoo email account for 9+ years I will be switching to another site. If you have suggestions, suggest away! :)

My life Through Photos

Decorating Day planners seems to be a thing these days and paying $80 for one too seems to be in too. I'm not about to spend 1/4 of that on a day planner. So I picked up the Project life planner inserts at 50% off and a few jump rings and a few hours later I made this cutie. I'm happy with how it turned out because I didn't know how to make a sturdy cover for it but I figured it out.


Last week was AMAZING for couponing for me. There were two good deals happening on this dog food & because I couldn't hit up Target which had the better deal until the end of the week I did all this at Walgreens..this was 20 bags for $12

I was feeling a bit iffy to wait until the end of the week with maybe not getting to get in on this deal but I hit up 5 Targets & got what I wanted. Pictured is 36 bags of dog food, 20 tubs of dog food, 10 cans of cat food, 6 tapes, 3 St. Ives, 18 hand sanitizers, 6 deoderants for $60.34 plus tax. We already gave away some dog food and we'll be donating a lot of it to the pug rescue,I love helping out those cuties.

These are Pluots which are a plum & apricot hybrid. I had never had them but I like them! They actually taste like a mix between a plum and a peach.

I thrifted this cassette tape holder for $3 & turned it into a washi tape holder :)
