Happy New Years!!

I wish everyone a SAFE and most of all Happy New Year. May this year bring you all the best ;)
This New Year's Eve we are sitting home as hubby prepares his power point for his possible promotion. I made some good eats and maybe we will have a margarita later closer to midnight. The crazy days of going out are apparently moving past us. We have bigger and brighter things to look forward to...most of all ringing in the New Year with the boys. :)

Next up...Tristan's invitations...

So you may ask yourself why in the blue blazes am I up this late?? Well I have been making Tristan's birthday party invitations. I SHOULD have been done quite some time ago...BUT me and the printer have been duking it out!

See awhile back a paper got stuck in the printer and there was a wrestling match to get the sheet of paper out. I eventually won and the printer had received a battle wound. The little piece that feeds the paper into the printer snapped off....LUCKY ME....ugh

So being the cheap...uh hum...frugal person that I am I waited for a sale. Black Friday came around (mind you that the printer has been broke since late May) and I found one. I bought it, but good ol Bessie still has some ink left so I am riding it out until the ink is gone.

I have lost quite a few coupons due to this since you can only print coupons so many times and I have to hand feed the paper into the printer. This doesn't always turn out for the best. Hence the reason that I am still up...just when I thought the printer was going to win this battle I figured out a great little start feeding the papers BEFORE the one printing comes out. So alas I am DONE.

I fought the printer and I won....hee hee

Nighty night!

This is one of the FUNNEST party sites out there. If you haven't become a member I strongly recommend that you do! So far I have done 2 parties for them and just received my 3rd party kit. I am SUPER DUPER stoked to do the latest party. I got selected to be a Fun and Fit party host which means that I got the awesome Wii games. Let me tell you this party is gonna ROCK! I got the Jenny McCarthy Wii exercice game along with the Wii Dance Party game, 5 coupons for FREE Jello-Mousse, a bunch of $0.50 off coupons for the guests, spoons, nakpins, head bands and $10 off coupons for the game to give to the guests.

I have also hosted the Martha Stewart crafts party and the Hot Wheels party. I just applied for a couple more and can't wait to see if I get accepted. (See this is another reason that I have been temporarily been away from the bloggin world...I have been having AWESOME parties!!)

When I tell people about House they always ask, "Well, what's the catch??" First off you have to answer a few pages of questions online. And then you do some follow up surveys and let them know how the guests liked the products.
There's a new promo code ACME26 to get a free one-night movie rental with at your local Redbox. You can only use one code per transaction, so if you want to use more than one code just make two transactions.

You need to make sure you return your one-night movie rental before it's due to avoid any late charges. And Amy at MomAdvice says you can use each promo code more than once if you use it with a different credit card. Check to find your closest Redbox location, there are over 17,000. These codes can only be used "at-the-Redbox" and can't be used online to reserve the movie you want.

Other codes that are probably still valid:



DVDATWAG (works only at Walgreens locations)



Monday Freebie First Monday of Month
Plus the first Monday of each month a code is released that's valid for a free movie that Monday only. You can sign-up for text messages here to get a unique code for your free movie that can only be used once. I'll share any codes that I find that are shareable, but that code they send out via text message is not shareable.

Thanks, Freebies for Mom!
