Nichole and David’s Myrtle Beach Adventure Fall 2017 #myrtlebeach #sponsorswanted


      I am very excited to say that I will be doing another sponsored trip here on the blog! This has been 3 years (give or take) in the making, and I had all but given up and decided to give it another go- because I don't give up very easily! I have got a lot of NO's along the way, but it just pushed me even further!  Of course my last trip was to TN and it was really awesome, for the learning experience that it gave me when it comes to doing these kind of sponsored opps!   This time around I am hoping that everything goes a little smoother- last time I was sick the first day of the trip, David had just started having anxiety attacks (we didn't know what was going on at that time) and I overbooked our activities, and it was unseasonably hot! It isn't to say we didn't enjoy that trip because we did.. I am just hoping for good health all around and a little less stress :) I am putting this post up as a pinned post with my sponsors until after … [Read more...]

Last week was busy-trying to play catch-up!


Hey Everyone Well I started several blog posts last week that never managed to get finished/posted if that counts? :) I was really busy with going out and about with my mom doing couponing and going tanning - I know Tuesday Was CVS and then Publix opened on Wed... I think on Thursday I just went out with her and went tanning but I can't even remember right off!  Saturday David and I were out and about most of the day and then Sunday I went tanning really early on...then we just hung around the house and watched the race! I will try my best to put up a couponing trip post with pics here in a little while..  I actually have a couple posts I want to get up- who knows .. I might go back and edit some of last weeks post and put them on up lol! Yesterday I had the headache from HELL most of the day and just felt awful but around 3 I was feeling better and my mom was actually going out and about so I went with her even though it was later in the day just so I could go ahead and … [Read more...]

there was a weekend?


Hey Everyone well.. I honestly don't know where the weekend even went! You all know i'm always joking that I don't really get out and about that much except walmart or christian ministries? Well David talked me into going out on Saturday and we went to best buy, game stop (I got a ton of DS games cheap because they are older ones) and we ate at Panda Express (not really want I wanted but...) Anyways we only went across the lake basically - it only takes maybe 10-15 min to go/get home and most of that is because of the traffic. Anyways... we got stuck in traffic for almost an hour trying to get home- and I was like see... this is why I don't go places lol. Before I knew it it got LATE fast and with the time change it was even later. Yesterday we got slammed with david's family visiting - last week it was his mom and this week his dad and brother. I had every intention of being at the tanning bed when they opened -I was a little late but I got that in before his family got here. … [Read more...]

My Coupon Hauls – March 4-9th 2018(CVS/Harris Teeter)


I will try to get better at breaking things down as time goes on, but for a first time sort of thing I will just go with what I can remember :) If you have a specific question I actually have comments turned on for this post and I'll try to guide you if I can! CVS Deal:  Before Extra Bucks & Coupons- $33.31(Reeses Candy Easter Egg not pictured) After Coupons & Extra Bucks- $4.99 Also, $6.50 in Extra Bucks for another time 89% total Savings CVS Deal #2 Deal was Buy $15 in Physcians Formula get $10 in extra bucks My mom also had some CVS coupons for $3 off 12, and some extra bucks +I got a candy bar for .99 cent :) After all was said and done we paid $7.60 and got the $10 in extra bucks!!

Basically the bags of … [Read more...]

things to look forward to & more :)


Hey Everyone well.. I am seemingly getting back into the swing of things which I like! I just wish some review opps would come along- and I know they will but I have to admit that I am a bit discouraged on that front. Most emails seemingly don't get opened- and then on the odd chance they do they either don't get a reply, get a straight up NO or start telling me about their affiliate program (which I don't do- they just to me are a waste of ad space /time but thats my opinion and if that is your thing , by all means go for it- it just isn't mine!) I am also not having lots of ideas of places to pitch- and people aren't really pitching me- but like I said before I am pretty sure that within the next several weeks that should start to change- hopefully! I know last year I didn't even do any reviews until I started gift guide & the beach trip guide so.. it wasn't the worst thing ever, I just wouldn't mind doing some here and there this year if I can manage to work it out. I do … [Read more...]

out in about in the cold rain(seriously. this stupid weather)


Hey Everyone :D Phew. Last night David and I cuddled up early in bed - well me with my macbook & ds- and were watching t.v and what not and he went to sleep pretty early on. Of course this was after I went tanning and I was pretty darn relaxed. Well he went to sleep with marley pretty early on but around 9:45 I was like o.k David you need to go take Mars out so we can get to bed here around 10. well .. he woke up (barley- he can do that stuff though- wake up talk/get up whatever and then zonk right back out) well right at 10 I put him back up and he just gets his clothes off and into bed and i'm like um??? you need to take out Mars? He always takes her out at night (well 99.9% of the time) because it is so stinkin dark and for some reason she just don't like to go out with me before bed ! Anyways, he was like zonked out so I had to take her and then it took like 20 min and I was like o.k wtf? he never even checked on me or came to see what was up so I come in and he's OUT and … [Read more...]
