Three Things you did not Know About ME......

This weeks blog hop asks you to share 3 unknown things about yourself. That is so hard to do since I have already shared so much here. But here we go anyway....

1. If red beets were the last food around, I would rather starve to death than eat them!

2. I was a nightclub manager in my 20's. I truly loved that job while I was single. I only left when I was going to marry my husband. Those late night club hours do not work well in a marriage.

3. I once threw food in my high school cafeteria and I am such a bad aim that I missed the intended target and hit the principle instead!! I had to go to the office. I did talk my way out of punishment though. He liked me!

Yo Baby Prize Pack Winner....

Go here to see who won this great prize pack from Yo Baby Yogurt!!

Free Food and Free Chocolate....

I told you how to get free food at Chick-fil-a here.
So today, we printed out cow costumes from here and we cut them out and headed to Chick-fil-a......
Here is what my kids looked like.......

and here is all the free food we took home!

The manager was not sure she wanted to give us a free meal because we were not dressed from head to toe. I kindly explained that the Chick-fil-a website did not say "head to toe" just dress like a cow and that these costumes were printed from their website. So she then agreed and told us to pick any meal we wanted. What a great deal!!!

First Tomatoes....

I love tomatoes! One food I could survive on.. tomatoes!! Love them!! This year I am more grateful than ever for these grape tomato plants on my deck. You see here, my first red tomatoes. I picked them last week. You may also notice the yellow leaves behind the tomatoes. It has been so cool and wet in the North East this summer. My grape tomato plants are turning yellow and the garden tomato plants have lots of buds but no tomatoes. We will be lucky to have tomatoes by August at this rate.
The good side of having a cool wet summer.... we have yet to turn on any air conditioning. We have never made it this far into a summer without air conditioning since we have been married.
Love the electric bill... miss the garden fresh tomatoes!

Old Navy Deal...

I headed to Old Navy this am to get the $1 t shirts that were supposed to be offered today only. I was sad to see they were $5 instead. When I came home, I googled and read that Old Navy pulled the plug on this promotion at the last minute. I am sorry if I caused anyone to make a special trip. I was let down by this change also. Have a happy 4th of July!
