My Real Life Alphabet / My 400th Post!

My amazing friend R has been telling me I need to do a post similar to the one she did a while back. A real life alphabet. Something starting with each letter of the alphabet in my very own life. It's not easy... I was going to do exactly that. One big post. HUGE in honor of this post. My 400th. But then I started thinking... I haven't been a very good blogger lately, and I apologize for that. I do... So, instead of posting a ginormous ridiculously long blog post, I'm going to make you a deal instead. (My adorable nephew likes to make deals, too... I think its precious!) I'm going to blog the alphabet through the month of June. A post Monday thru Saturday every week. 26 promised posts. I'll try to throw something out there on Sundays; and who knows, maybe I'll still throw in some Wordless Wednesdays as well!

What do you think, blogging friends? Can I do it? 30 (or more?) posts in 30 days.

It's on!

Oh, and since I skipped a Wordless with the idea of a special 400th post, here's a photo for the road:

I'll see you tomorrow with the letter A!!

I Want To Be An Extreme Couponer

Have you seen this show on TLC? Extreme Couponing! It’s INSANE. People are out there buying $1800.00 worth of groceries for around $45! Now, where I get really confused by them is the reasoning behind why anyone in their right mind would need to have 64 bottles of mustard in their house… or 60 bottles of hot sauce… or enough paper towel rolls to fill a bathtub/shower.


I would love to do it because I realized something… getting all of those groceries and such for so cheap (even if I was closer to the people that spend $15 on $700 worth of groceries)… I could take what I could actually use/need and give the rest to soup kitchens or food pantries…

That would be AWESOME!

I know...

I know you can be overwhelmed, and I know you can be underwhelmed, but can you ever just be whelmed?

Because I think that's what I am right now...
