Two-fer Tuesday-Two Great Deals

It's Two-fer Tuesday! Yay okay so my plan for these posts is to give you two cool.............

I'm going to fill in the blank with something ultra cool and you'll just have to wait and see what it just might be. It could be 2 great deals I've come across, 2 great finds or future projects, 2 great pictures, awesome blogs, cool get the picture...hmmm what will it be today??

Today is going to be: Two great Deals!

Our First Great Deal: want to be able to find your little one when he/she is on the move?? Check out these cute squeaky sandals!

I am LOVING the Hot Pink on these sandals!

And how cute are these for your little guy?

I LOVE these Sandals for my little ones, so much fun (and the squeakers can usually be taken in and out which is GREAT when you can't take the squeakiness anymore). Best Part is they are only $11.00 today!!!!

I LOVE Sophie's Chic boutique! (and no they are not a sponsor) They have the greatest finds for you and your baby and they feature a daily "Deal of the Day." Subscribe to get their emails and you'll always know when they have a new deal, or when they are having a sale! If you live in Utah they are local and you can forgo the shipping and just run up and pick them up Today!!

Our Second Great Deal comes from The Mini Social. The Mini Social is a great website that features great deals for everything from kids clothing, maternity wear, toys, bags... you name it.

Now I am a SUCKER for bags! Love bags in almost any form... and I've been known to pay more than I should for a good bag...So while I was perusing The Mini Social this morning guess how stoked I was to find these Amykathryn little beauties:

Love cute!

And this one...
And this one...
Too cute! I don't know how I'm going to choose!

Hurry over to these sites and check out these Great Deals for yourself! Happy Shopping!

Winner Winner What's for Dinner?

Yay my first official post!! Excuse me while I take a moment to celebrate the day that I thought would never come! (Picture a happy dance...a Zumba-ish type of dance because that's as far as my knowledge of dance goes) So I'm excited to show you a little bit of my crazy list and chart filled world...

Generally speaking, I have a everything written down on some sort of list, chart or calendar! I'm a sucker for organization and I've never me a notebook or list that I didn't love! With that being said I also have almost everything scheduled out. I have certain things I do on certain days and a general schedule for each day (doesn't my house sound like a BLAST). With four kids under 5, school and 4 Jobs on top of being a SAHM, I don't think we would function without them! I call them the glue of our family.

Mondays are generally my busy day. Among other chores, I update all of our family calendars, balance the checkbook, pay bills for the week, and write out all of my of which is the lunch/dinner menus and grocery shopping list. I typically like to schedule our meals two weeks at a time and I've got a nifty little system that I'll show you another time. I thought since I'm writing out my menus on Monday's anyways I'd go ahead and share them. I know that I'm always on the look out for new dinner ideas, so if this helps you think of something new then yay! I'll try to link the recipes that I have, and I'm working on having a recipe page...eventually. If I don't link something that you think you want the recipe too, then let me know and I'll try and post it for you.

So here is our Menu for this week:

Monday: Melt in Your Mouth Meatloaf, green beans and Onion Potatoes

Tuesday: Eating Out (family day and we'll be out till late)

Wednesday: Sausage Rigatoni and Salad

Thursday: Chicken Fajitas, Spanish Rice and Corn

Friday: (Friday is ALWAYS Pizza day) Papa Murphy's Pizza

Saturday and Sunday: My day off...I do not cook on the weekend...a nifty little trick I picked up from my Mom. Usually the weekend we polish off any left overs worth eating, eat out, or else hit up the deep freezer for anything in the "frozen reserve."

Happy Cooking!

Finally a Post!

Okay, the website is done and so it is about time I get going and make this Blog actually become a Blog!

I've done a lot of thinking and have come to the conclusion that I will link this Blog to my Website but this Blog will be primarily a place for me to post my adventures in "Crafty Land." Occasionally you may be subject to my "shop talk" and I will sometimes mention that some of my crafty creations can be found in my store...but I'll try to keep the boring business talk to a minimum. Business is doing pretty good, and I'm pretty happy at the new exciting things on the Horizon for the My LilliBean shop! Visit the store often as new products are being added all the time! Okay that's about enough of that...on to "Crafty Land..."

Okay so I sat down and sort of wrote out a list of the projects that I want to do, and the sort of crafty adventures that I'm looking to have...and I'm pretty excited about what I have in store for myself! I made a list of the 10 categories that most of my posts will fall under...for now, (expanding I'm hoping will happen sometime down the road as I find that my thirst for adventure is calling me again.) So here are the adventures that I will be undertaking for the time being:

1. Winner Winner What's For Dinner?
2. Two-fer Tuesdays
3. It's Getting Kinda Hairy
4. The Organization Station
5. Silhouette Adventures
6. Playing Hookie
7. It's Going Sew-So
8. We're Gong Digital...
9. Let's Get Homey
10.Check Out The Cool Kids

Ha ha yes super Cheesy. I will expound on these all in later Posts and you should brace yourselves to start seeing these Posts make an appearance (crossing my fingers) this week! I am SO excited!

I do have to say that after 9 years a day that I never thought I would live to see has finally arrived! Yes it is a day that will live in infamy...I not only embraced, but also appreciated the full Cheesiness that is my Husband, aka the Cheesiest Man Alive! Thanks baby!

Oh and if you have any fun ideas for the renaming of any of the categories or even a new category itself...let me know! :)
