Coupons...and a few other things...

So here recently I saw one of my friends on Facebook post something about figuring out coupons. AND I was wondering if anyone had any coupon sites that they'd like to share?

Also I'm not Twilight Obsessed as some people are (not that I'm judging) but my husband thinks I am. And really I just think Robert Pattinson is HOT! What's wrong with that? I told him today I could be so much worse with that movie. He said I don't understand why people like it. So then I had to explain why everyone likes it. MEN! (Gotta love em)

My dad preached an awesome sermon on Sunday (not that he doesn't do good every week) but this Sunday it was about needs. And his main statement throughout the whole sermon was - 'If you're down to nothing, then God's up to something.' How right is that. I felt like he was preaching right to me because last week it was a battle.

First it was cold and then rainy. Well, where our crawl space is for our house flooded so the heat started messing up. Then once Jamie and his friend, Justin, got all the water out we went to turn our heat back on and it smelled so bad like something burning. We changed the filter but it still smelled. So today we had someone come out and look at it and found the problem. Now it doesn't stink. But we'll need a new heating system very soon. Whew...But I know God will provide so I'm not going to stress or worry over it.

Alright, enough rambling...Now I'm going to bed...don't forget to leave comments and let me know some coupon sites! :)

Eve's Daughters by Lynn Austin

So about a week ago I was complaining that I didn't know what book to read but I really just wanted a GOOD book...Well, I found it...Read below! :)

I started this book on 11/07/2009. I finished this book on 11/11/2009.

This book got five stars from me which is a major thing. All I can say about book (well, not really all I can say) is WOW!! It was amazing. My favorite part was Emma's story. Okay now let's go back some, this book was about 3 women, (Grandmother, Mother, Daughter) and their stories plus the story of their Great-Grandmother. It was about how when a lie was exposed everything started making sense and people started to understand. I love how the author did push God on you she just let the characters speak through the story about their faith. The part about the daughter needing to know that her mom and dad were proud of her hit home big time, as in that's something I fear is my parents won't be proud of me. I can't wait to see what her next book is about!

What to read...

I know it's unbelievable but I actually haven't had a book to read since Thursday so that's two days without a book. It's not that I don't want to read it's just I don't know what to read. So what do I read? If you have any suggestions please let me know.

On to other things...Jamie and I have been married two years! WOW I can't believe it's been that long. It feels like just yesterday I was walking down the aisle to him. Oh how I love him. To celebrate we are going to a cabin in Sparta thanks to some friends of our family, Susan and Randy. Sparta is about an hour away so we're going to leave tomorrow after church and go up there till sometime on Tuesday. I'm so excited.

I'm also excited that tonight Jamie and I are going to Charlotte to eat at a resturant called Pie Town. We've ate there before, so we knows it's really good, but the chef/owner of the resturant also is an author that Jamie likes and tonight they are having a book release party. I'm excited because he's excited.

Why is it that the leaves changing colors on the trees are so pretty but then when they fall on the ground they aren't so pretty anymore? haha

Off to try to find a book to read...Thanks for reading my blog...leave a comment and tell me what book I should read...

Boy In The Striped Pajamas by John Boyne

I started reading this book on 10/29/2009. I finished this book on 11/03/2009.

I really liked this book. I would have liked to see more conversation between Bruno and Shmeul but overall it was pretty good. The ending wasn't what I thought it would but and I didn't like the ending. Or wait, the ending was okay but it was sad. I had wondered at one point if Shmeul wouldn't talk Bruno into trading places with him but the ending wasn't that it was something much sadder. Overall a three star book. I can't wait to see the movie.

Woohoo, met my goal of 50 books for 2009 and still have 2 months left...Now onto the next book...

Weight Loss & New Floors...

The weight loss is going okay. So far I've lost 5.2 lbs! :) I'm excited about that but just want to lose more.

Back at the end of September we had our floors redone. If you remember back in March, Jamie and I entered a contest to win patio furniture and flooring. Well, we won and we got our patio furniture and we've had it for a while. But the floor people weren't really wanting to work with us so it took us till about the first of September to even get the tile that we'd ordered back in May! Anyhow we are finally finished and here is the finished product. I have a picture where you can kind of see the bathroom floor before (it was black tile). Now it's white tile in the bathroom and kind of brownish tile in the kitchen...Enjoy! :)
