Hello all!

Joesbaby - ooh what a pretty horse!

I'm going to give the family a Valentine's Party today. I'm still not quite sure what we're having for dinner, but I'm making big heart shaped cookies frosted with pink icing for dessert, and I have chocolates to dip too. I bought them all little gifts and put them in red bags, and I've done candy bar bags like, I love you SMORE and SMORE, and don't SNICKER, I love you MOUNDS! I had so much fun making them up. I also rubber stamped them Valentines in my mom's rubber stamp room.

Well, I just got back from my run and I'm all wet, it was raining, so I need to go change and wake up dh and the kiddo's.

Carol

Congrats... you turned it over to Page 100 Sorry I wasn't on yesterday girls but we are having computer problems on our home computer... dh was on there till after midnight last night trying to figure out what's wrong. Dr. Watson keeps popping up and won't go away. We thought it was a virus but it's something in our programming. It won't let you left click on the mouse pad, you have to right click where it says "Open" Grrr!!! He took the day off today to keep working on it.

I wasn't frugal this weekend, spent dibs and dabs here and there all weekend. I went to another thrift store yesterday looking for a pair of jeans. Ran into my sister there who was looking for books. I found a whole bunch of the type romance novels I like and spent about $10.00 on books, also they had all sweaters on sale for 50 cents so I bought quite a few wool sweaters to make a second sweater blanket. These are gonna be a pain to get ready as they have to be cold washed and layed flat to dry so gotta find some space to do that before I can start working on them.

Well gotta go be back later

Joesbaby

What a awesome beautiful horse! and way to go on the couponing!!!

forget to say I had to get a new (used)

computer monitor. I didnt get a new one with my new computer last year, so my other one was 7 yrs old and just quit over the weekend! I got ahold of the guy that fixed my computer and he had a good used 17" for $50. Was going to get one at the thrift store, but theres were as old as mine. And new ones i cant afford right now. This one is big, dont need my glassees to see the screen!!!

Idyroper: You will be much closer to me if you get that property by Medora, about 200 miles.

Joesbaby: love the horse, but then I am horse crazy. We now have 8 horses here , 3 are being boarded for the winter .

We have wind and clouds here today, will drive into the post office after a bit, a pkg arrived saturday, ( my new bedspread I won on Ebay) am anxious to get it home and take a peek at it. Then will drive to the other town and pick up a small dresser I bought which has toile painting on it, That dresser will be the end of my buying for my bedroom as it will be completly full of furniture.

Happy Valentines day to everyone

Joy

Anna, you bet I want it.

Nothing frugal going on here. We got the drapes for the sliding glass window Sat. These things better last a long time. The costed enough. They were 50% off and the hardware was 20% off and we had a coupon for 15.00 off. SO we spent 250.00 for them.

OK, listen to this. I took the kids to school and my DD handed me a note. It said do not open until you get home. It was from my DH. I am to meet him in Boise I am not to pick up the kids I am to dress up and that is what the not said minus the mushy stuff. I am so surprised. I cannot believe he did this. All the way down to getting a babysitter. He can be such a sweetie.

Emm,
What a wonderful Valentines day your going to have! Enjoy yourself!
I am making my boys including dh heart shaped pink frosted sugar cookies! Have the dough chilling now. That to me is a frugal Valentine gift to the ones I love.
Anna,
I like to read romance books to, my grandma has always said that is her vice. Needless to say she belongs to all the Harlequin clubs so I have never had to buy one myself. SHe has boxes of them. My great aunt goes halves with her. Been reading those books since I was 13 or 14...There just like watching a romance movie a quick 2 hrs. Not that I get to read as many as I used to. Still like a few novels here and there though. I seem to read more in the summmer! Hope your dh gets the computer problem fixed today.
Karen )momto4) are you saving the bikes as their Easter presents? Kids do need bikes great excercise. I want to get Evan one this year for his birthday. He had a big wheel type back last year. Of course it will take more for me to let him ride down the sidewalk but thats the paranoid mom in me. I just get freaked out if people pull out of driveways fast as I know some do.
