Happy Monday!

Hey there blogging world!! It looks like I'm doing pretty good so far on my New Years resolution of blogging more because my last post was 4 days ago, not 4 months ago! I'm also doing pretty good with another resolution. Today I hungout with a friend from high school that I haven't seen in at least 4 years. She has a 3 (almost 4 year old) daughter that I never met today so I know it has been at least 4 years since I saw my friend last. I'm really glad that I got to see her today and I hope we continue talking and hanging out. As I mentioned in my last post, I need some good friends in my life so I'm glad that I got at least one of them back!
So my friend, her daughter, and I did some errands today. My fiancĂ© and I got some money for Christmas and I wanted to use that to do some grocery shopping. So of course, I waited until I saw the best deals in the ads and I couponed!! I saved 54% at the first store and 41% at the second store. I'm no "Extreme Couponer", but I'm still saving money so that's all that matters!! I got us a bunch of frozen vegetables, some pizzas, toaster strudels, meat. Oh, and the best deal I got was 5 General Mills  cereals for $5!! They had a deal that if you bought 4 you would get $2 off. Then I had a coupon for $1 off 2 and another coupon for $1 off 3. So once you put that all together, it came out to be $1 for each cereal!!
Well, that was about the extent of my day. I also stopped at Barnes and Noble to use a gift card. I didn't know what I was going to get because I read all of my books on my Kindle. So I decided to get some kids books that I can have in my future classroom. I ended up getting Dear Mr. Henshaw by Beverly Cleary, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Ronald Dahl, and two books from the Magic Tree House series: High Tide in Hawaii and Tonight on the Titanic (because I love Titanic!!!) Have a great rest of your night everyone!!
