My wife and I were sitting at a table at my high school
reunion, and I kept staring at a drunken lady swigging her
drink as she sat alone at a nearby table. My wife asked,
'Do you know her?' 'Yes,' I sighed,
'She's my old girlfriend. I understand she took to
drinking right after we split up those many years ago, and I
hear she hasn't been sober since' 'My God!'
says my wife, 'Who would think a person could go on
celebrating that long?'
And that's how the fight started.....

Have a great Friday..Enjoy!

Walgreens $5 off coupon- 5/20-5/21

On Wednesday and Thursday, there will be a Walgreens coupon for $5 off any $25 purchase.

This is a great coupon if you haven't been to Walgreens yet this week.

With this coupon though, your total purchase must be $25 after all coupons. I'd suggest buying items which will produce a Register Reward in order to maximize your savings.

Get all the details here and print the coupon!!

Here are some deals to get your started:

Buy 1 Right Guard Professional Strength at $4.99, Get $5 Register Rewards
-$1/1 Right Guard coupon from 4/19 SmartSource insert

- $1/1 printable coupon

Buy 1 Skintimate Shave Gel at $1.99, Get $1 Register Rewards
-$0.75/1 coupon from 4/26 SmartSource insert

The best way to get to $25 would be to buy the products that you know you need, but never have great coupons for. I will be getting contact solution (usually around $6), Allergy meds for my fiance ($6) and then some filler products like Kraft Macaroni and Cheese which is $0.69 after in-ad coupon. Buy Three and Get ONE FREE Kraft Mac and Cheese. Coupon here. Enjoy!

Molly and Mom Handkerchief Review

Molly and Mom is a wonderful Etsy store that specializes in personalized handkerchiefs. They sent me a personalized handkerchief for my father for my wedding day. I was practically crying when I opened the box. It is stunning and I can't wait to see my father's face when I give it to him. Molly and Mom also creates monogrammed handkerchiefs for everyone in your wedding party. Don't forget your best man, ushers, groomsmen and mother of the bride.


All handkerchiefs are customized and Molly and Mom will work with you on your perfect design. Before embroidering Molly and Mom will email you a photo of your design for your approval.

Mother of Bride and Groom Handkerchief

I felt so involved throughout the process. I am having pink roses at my wedding, and they embroidered a beautiful pink rose. The embroidering is perfect and you will also receive a snap shot of the finished handkerchief on the day your gift is sent out. Molly and Mom's goal is to always exceed your expectations. They have greatly exceeded mine...Enjoy!
