Late Night Chitter Chatter

I obviously cannot sleep no matter what I try to do! I have gained a major headache in this adventure of attempting sleep and now it has become harder to fall. So... What's happening blogger world?

I have always had this sleep issue and I'm not really sure why or how it started. I always blame it on working night shift for so long but the hubby seems to sleep fine and he worked it longer than me. I can't complain too much, it's not like I have to wake up early or anything.

My days are pretty boring so it's not like I am eager to jump out of the bed in the morning. I do things like...

Go buy cupcakes from Cupcake & Co. :) My new favorite place in town.

Take pictures of myself riding down the road. By the way this is my new hair color! :)

Buy more cupcakes from Cupcake & Co. AND....

Eat my lemonade cupcake! :) yum!

Other than the previous, I sit at home and wait for things like this:

Yes those would be my free samples from Wal-Mart along with my coupons to purchase the products. I am excited to try the two products for me! Woohoo!

I'm going to give this whole sleep thing another try! Talk to you soon!! :) - jess

So, I haven't been here lately but I guess I will make up for it now! Since I have nothing to do I decided I would at least try to save some money for my little family so we started couponing. I thought I would share with you what all I have gotten in the past two weeks. Of course I am not a professional and I wouldn't even say that I am close to being like the people that you hear about or see on television but for two weeks I would say that I have done pretty good.

2 Five Star One Subject, 1 pkg. Ten Count Papermate Pens, 2 Eight Count Mechanical Pencils, Soft Scrub Total, Nivea Body Wash, 55 yds of Oral-B Dental Floss, 2 Four Packs of Activia, 1 jar of Skippy Crunchy Peanut Butter

Original Price: 23.87 Saved: 15.40
Spent: $8.47

I am thinking that is pretty good since it is my first time to use coupons! :) Now the second week I didn't do so good at least I do not think so but maybe that is only because I spent more than $10.

1 Gillette Body Wash, 1 Tide Detergent Single, 3 Baby Wipes, 2 Bottles Suave Deodorant, 1 pkg Bic Razors, 1 pkg Energizer Battery, 1 pkg Activia, 4 Johnson & Johnson First Aid Package, Colgate Total, Colgate Max + Toothbrush, 2 Four Packs of Expo Dry-Erase Markers, 2 Bottles Gain Dishwashing Soap, 1 Bottle Dawn Dishwashing Soap, 2 80 Count Splenda Essentials, 1 All You Magazine

Original Price: $56.55 Saved: 26.98
Spent: $29.57

So here is my couponing for the past two weeks! I am pretty proud of myself! :) Maybe I will do just as well next week! Oh and if you are wondering where all of my groceries are, we haven't bought groceries in almost three weeks. Somehow we are living on the food that we have and every night we are able to pick out a wonderful meal! I guess we did good our first grocery shopping trip! :)

New month, New town... What else is new?

Well we are finally moved in and today was Shannons first day of work in his new job. Maybe I should rephrase that to orientation he has not seen any new patients yet. For me... Today was probably my most productive day ever! Do you know that having the Internet at your home allows you to procrastinate even more than you normally would? Take for instance my school work. I would normally wait until bed time to finish it but since I do not have the Internet I had to go to the library which closes at 7. (A post about the library will come at some time i am amazed at the library! It has a tree inside!) I guess you can forget procrastination this week! We are suppose to be getting Internet, Cable, and Phone tomorrow so... Woohoo!! I can go back to my procrastinating ways. Actually I think I'm going to stick with what I have been doing, it is nice to have nights free! :)

But anyway... Let's get down to the real reason for this post. Our apartment is all fixed up so I'm posting some pictures. Duh!

This is our new living room with our new furniture! I love it! I'm glad I changed the curtains that were down here to these lighter ones. The original curtains are now in our bedroom. See next picture...

The master bedroom with the curtains originally bought for the living room. That is when I thought we bought a green couch. I guess I am color blind.

Our new kitchen table! Our should I say our first kitchen table!! Either way it sounds amazing! And yes, our freezer is in the kitchen. I preferred it here rather than sitting outside in the weather. If you think that's crazy I would ask that you come find a better place! :)

If you do not know what this is I am not explaining it! Yes I do have pictures of all of the bathrooms, inside closets, the laundry room... Etc. But I'm not really interested in sharing. Although they are very neatly organized! Don't believe me, i know someone who received every picture!

Maybe tomorrow I will have something a little more interesting to talk about. Maybe I will do better at this whole blogging thing soon!!
