Hello world!


A new year, a new blog! I have tried my hand at blogging a few
times, with moderate success, but I was never truly happy with
the direction things took. I have decided to focus on the things
that make me happy, and not let a rigid writing schedule take
the fun out of things. I DO promise to be active as much as
possible though, cause the point of this is to share my little
window to the world with y’all. 😉

Some of you might end up following me because of coupon stuff or
freebie stuff, and thats cool. I am not going to be one of those
daily deal blogs, though…so you may be disapointed. I am
pretty darn new to the couponing world…as a matter of fact, I
started this afternoon! 😀 So for those of you who are also new,
we can learn together or offer each other suggestions. If you
are a pro, feel free to poke your nose in and tell us whats
That being said…I follow a different coupon and freebie
philosophy than some of you, which I will tell you more about
here. I am not gonzo for coupons, but I AM
gonzo for freebies! But if a coupon could get me something free,
I am all over that, my friends. And if it is really good, I will
link ya, on my Facebook page.

Why am I writing this blog? Well, to share with you, of course!
Here is a little background on us. IF you are not interested,
just skip ahead to our second post! I won’t be hurt. not even a
little. That is not a tear, my eyes are sweating. Just go. 😉

I moved from Chicago to a tiny town (3,500 people) in Central
Illinois, because the cost of living in “The Big City” got to be
too high. I love Chicago, we bleed Cubby red and blue in this
house…but we had to be smart and do what was best for our
future. The cost of living in a rural community is lower, though
it comes with its own interesting issues. We have been here a
few years, but the adjustment has come hard to some of us.
Sometimes in very funny ways! The town has horse hitches at our
one tiny gas station/diner, and I have seen people ride their
horse to buy a pack of smokes before!

We live in a town home,and are dreaming/saving for what I call the "Forever House"

I have Walking People blood in me, and so I have spent most of
my life moving around from one town to another. Now that my
daughter is getting older, however, I’ve decided to put down
roots (if I can, haha) and concentrate on raising the family and
selling my crafties. My daughter is almost 9, a pink-wearing
girly girl who loves sports and wants to be a vet when she grows
up. (The country is a good place for her,haha.) She is my little
princess! We refer to her here as Lil’ G.

My personal life is kept very private (except for…you know,
the whole blog thing) but I will occasionally refer to my
partners in crime. *DH is tall, quiet and incredibly smart. Scary smart.
He is very into science, physics, and space. I asked him once
why he felt like he needed to know how everything in the
universe works, and he joked “because thats how I hold it all
together with my mind”. But I believe he could do it,haha.
*MH is a small, wirey and boisterous man of mischevious good
intentions and an easy going nature.He is the one who senses my
moods and always forces me to talk about my stupid girly
feelings, even if I don’t wanna…a great listener.

I am 28, with 5 years in the event industry and culinary arts. I
gave up the 9-5 life to peddle my wares full time. We also
bought a 100 year old house in a nearby city,and are slowly
rehabbing. no glorious quick flippers here…we are in this one
for the long haul, and plan to rent it out. But money is tight,
so we work on it when funds become available.
I love music, art, sitcoms that make me laugh or think,dogs over
cats but cats are ok too,books,movies, Football,Nascar,baseball,
animals, food and making things. I think recycling is neat.I
think rockabilly is the shit. I Love to swear. Sorry and I will
try to keep it to a minimum. I love my oddball family. I don’t
care much what people think about me.

Welcome to my little corner of the internet.
