Life is short.

Hello to all my friends sorry I did not post this Sunday its been a crazy week. I hate to talk about this but I just want to let all you know life is short and we need to make the best of everyday. This past forth of July my dear cousin passed of breast cancer. She was only in her 30's. She was a great person. Always worried about my health when she was going though something much worse in my eye's. She understood me in a different way then anyone. She understand how I felt leaving with pain everyday due to me having Thoracic outlet syndrome. She was so pretty and always was supportive of me. Just goes to show you life is short.I'm always upset of how I feel and maybe I'm just being a baby. She was always so positive ... I MISS YOU AND NOW YOUR IN HAVEN LOOKING OVER US.. Till next week my friends. Love ya

Five Summer Tips To Save Money........

Hello my friends we are having a great time this summer and hope you are too. I just wanted to share some money saving tips for the summer. We just booked our Vacation in Scottsdale AZ and are so happy. But we have been watching our money very careful so we can save for our trip. So I would like to share some money saving tips.

Mama's Hip Tip #1 Make crock pot dinners during the week and put away the leftovers. Julian loves Mac and Cheese so I found a quick and easy recipe online and we ate it for dinner that night and the next day he had it for lunch. It saved us from going out to eat.

Mama's Hip Tip #2 Here are really cute arts and crafts for kids I bought at the Dollar spot at Target. There are some for 3 dollars and less. I got a garden stepping you can paint and we put it in our little
garden after Julian panted it. It's nice for the kids to do arts and crafts because we have some much time in the summer. Julian always wants to watch t.v and i don't want that.

Mama's Hip Tip #3 If a family member gives you projects you can do with you kids that is great and you don't spend a thing. My mother -in- law give us some herbs and small planting kits. This is great because she knows Julian loves to plant.  It's free!!!

Mama's Hip Tips #4 Check local blogs because a lot will post what you can do weekly for the summer. They post free activities to do with the family that are happening around town.

Mama's Hip Tip # 5 Go on Groupon ...I went on there and found family activities for less then usual. Things that we could never do because it cost to much , But when we buy on Groupon it is so much less.  Like going to the New Jump Time. Its where you can jump on 5,000 square foot trampoline. Got it for $9. What a deal!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hope this helps my friends and don't forget to put on the Sun Screen..........

MAC AND CHEESE

Spring Time At The Park ( Budget Friendly idea's For Fun At The Park.)




 Hello to all my friends I have a couple idea's for budget friendly activities you can do when you are visiting your favorite park. Every penny you can save this spring and summer is great because before we know it the beginning of the school year will be here. All of us mom's know that's when we have to buy school clothes and all the supplies. I was recently introduced to a site where you can set a budget and manage your money if that will help you stay on track for supplies too, This is a great site it's called Personal Capital's financial software tools and app So lets have fun in the sun.

Number one tip take a trip to the dollar store. One of my favorite spots to go to get fun activities is the dollar tree. My son just turned five and he is really into exploring and bugs. Can you believe I found two bug catching kits for one dollar. We are going to find some bugs. Another activity I found was finger shooters. Finger shooters for foam and safe to play. All you do is pull back with your finger and they launch. My third find was magnet horse shoes. I have never seen these before so I had to get them. Horse shoes for perfect for the park. When I was a little girl my dad would play real horse shoes at the park. So I had to get them and they are save. My forth find was bubbles every kid loves bubbles. Again everything was a dollar.

My second tip is to go to Walmart. A great place to get budget friendly activities. I got a bubble machine for around 9 dollars. Its called the Gazillion Tornado Premium Bubble Machine, Also I got a bowling set for around 7 dollars and don't forget the caulk it was only 97 cents. It's always good to have more the one options for your kids to play with at the park because being smaller they like to move on to other things quicker.

My third tip is make or pick up easy picnic food. BLT sandwiches are good to make , pasta salad , and fresh fruit. Today we went to Walmart and got an already made sub sandwich for 5 dollars. It is always good to have water. Water is better then soda because it is so hot. But anything you have at home to make saves money. I also used the ice from my ice machine for our ice chest. Remember every dollar counts.

My fourth tip is look around your house for fun activities to do at the park. I found a football and some other balls and a tennis set we had that we never played. Like I said anything you have saves money and who does not want to save.

My final tip. Just have fun with your family. These days we are always in a hurry and it is just nice to get out and breath in that fresh air and relax.

Here are photo's of are fun time at the park!!
















Have a great day everyone and great week.
