 Welcome to my new little blogland adventure!  
I have gotten into something really bizarre and crazy lately that I've wanted to write about, but felt sort of odd putting it on my family blog.
So here we should first know that I have expensive tastes. 
Like, Marc Jacobs and Manolo Blahnik expensive taste.  

How I got this, I have no clue.  I certainly did not grow up with things like that.
I have visions of grandeur that's for sure though. 
I'm okay with this, a girl can have dreams, right?
The second thing you should know is that I have a handsome husband, Dan, who has a fantastic job that allows me to stay at home with my babies.  I am so grateful for that.  We have three beautiful children, Grahamie, Greggie and LuLu.  And a mortgage.  A car payment.  And we are doing construction on our basement.
Dan calls me his "babe with a budget."

See where I'm going with this? 

I'll never own the Manolo's...but I'm on a little quest to make our income stretch a little farther this year. 

This is just a fun little place to post my freebies, finds, my wheeling and dealing.
And maybe I can stop annoying Dan with my 'I saved 60% at the store today!" stories!
