A Trip To Joann's

Yesterday I went to Joann's.  For those of you who don't know, this is a fabric/craft store.  It is pretty much amazing, and my dad (on the advice of my sister) gave me a gift card for Christmas.  I don't go out much without Michael and so yesterday was the first time I was able to go since I got it.

I, of course, used a 50% off one regular priced item coupon, and (thank you Android phone) had a 20% off total purchase coupon.  Plus Joann's has the best sales, which is why I prefer shopping there to shopping at other fabric stores.  So for less than $15 I got enough fabric to make two more skirts, a Pound of Love that I am going to use to make a baby blanket and an embroidery hoop so I can finally work on my dad's Christmas present.  Yeah its a little late but he know I love him. 

Normally this would have cost around $30, so I did good! 

I think I will be able to make both skirts today, which is both disappointing and exciting.  I am REALLY bad at sewing, so I just make VERY basic elastic waist skirts, because I don't know how to do zippers or button-holes, but it makes my skirts really, really cheap.

I also went to Old Navy (another gift card) and got a sweater for $1.24. 

I wish I could get such good deals on groceries...

  1. We should shop together! You get good deals on this stuff and I get good deals on groceries!
    We're going to Korea at the end of this week to visit family, but maybe after we get back you and I can get together!

  2. WOW! Korea is quite a trip! I go to Idaho to visit family :)

    You do get amazing deals on groceries. We should for sure get together when you get back, it would be fun.

  3. I love Joann's so much! I went there this last weekend for their huge winter sale and almost everything was 40% off. A much better place than either Michaels or Craft Warehouse. Better prices and nicer clerks.

Things That Annoy Infertile Girls (or Maybe Just Me?) - Flashback Friday

This was actually one of my more popular posts when it was first published, but I still thought I would share it again.  Any additions to the post are in pink, as usual :)

Accidental Pregnancies - So I have been trying for years to get pregnant, you go slut around and accidentally get pregnant? Immediate Pregnancies - You quit taking your birth control last month and now you are pregnant? People Who Give You Retarded Advice -           - Just stop trying and you will get pregnant
           - My friend adopted a baby and got pregnant right away, you should do that
           - Get drunk, people always get pregnant when they are drunk (Yes, they do. Because they are
             intoxicated and forget to take precautions.)
Whiny Girls That Pretend They Are Infertile - Trying for 5 months is not suffering from infertility. It takes a year on average to get pregnant.  I get that it might FEEL like infertility but it just isn't.  After YEARS of trying, I can't even remember what tr…

Review - Seven Everyday Slings

I got this sling because it was free, I only had to pay shipping.  Since I bought it, I have found out that it is VERY easy to find codes for this to be free, and I am pretty sure that if you ever pay full price for one you got duped.

I was SO excited.  I wanted a baby carrier really bad.  I didn't have a baby, but I am always collecting baby things.

In case you were thinking that I only review things that I like, I HATE THIS SLING! 

I have used it with tiny babies, older babies, and toddlers. 

Pros:
- Adorable, and available in a variety of colors
- Lightweight and compact, you can easily throw it in a diaper bag or purse
- Works from birth - 35 lbs


Cons:
- Terrifying to use with small babies.  They sink down in it, and its almost impossible to keep them from having their chin tucked to their chest, which is a huge no-no in baby carrying.  Basically when I had Cooper in it as an infant I spent the entire trip to the park making sure he was still breathing, then I started sticki…

Is Mother Goose Time Worth The Money?

Last night my husband asked me if I thought that Mother Goose Time was worth the money if I didn't get it for free.  I think this is an excellent question, and one that people probably want to know.

How Much Does It Cost?:
Mother Goose Time costs $75 a month for one child, including shipping if you buy it month to month.  If you can order and pre-pay ahead of time, you can save up to 15%, depending on how far ahead you pre-pay.  If you have more than one child using the curriculum it is only about $5 a month to add a child.  Many of the products provided cover the entire class, including manipulatives and story books.  The things that each child needs come packaged in their own bag for each child.

What I Think of the Curriculum:
The curriculum is great.  It is thorough and engaging.  It provides me with ideas and supplies to teach my son things I never would have thought to teach him, but will make him a very well rounded person.  He now talks about things he never would have talked…
