I"m so excited for this weekend! Tomorrow we have the craft fair plus I'm excited for my freecycle freebies. It's like Christmas morning, where you don't know exactly what you will get, lol. I've got our backpack all packed for the kids and I remembered the jcpenney coupon. I just need to put a magazine in there in case I get stuck in a play area for my kiddos to jump out some energy, and I'm making muffns for the inevitable "mom...I"m huuuuunnnngrrry" LOL. My mom and sister are meeting us there and we are going to try to eat at an awesome local restaurant together, part of my hubby's birthday gift. Then Sunday is the hubby's actual birthday. Thanks to the aldis coupon we can have a "fancy" breakfast of bacon and eggs for free, and I'll make some brownies for that night. (I'm no good at cake making, but I make a mean brownie if I do say so). I happen to know he is getting one of his favorite movies as a birthday gift from my sister, so we will probably watch that that night and I arranged for him to go out and get some "guy" time with a friend so I know he will enjoy himself. This is the kick off for my favorite time of year, and while this time of year is also stressful and can be expensive I just love fall and winter (well, at least the christmas season...a couple weeks into January and I'm ready for spring, lol).
Tonight I'm going to try to get the kiddos to relax some so they will get the rest they need. We rented them a free redbox movie, the newest Scooby Doo (major Scooby Doo lovers here!)
