Yes, I drink while I blog (Occasionally)

I have over 1,434 photos in my phone as of right now. I can honestly say that 80% of them are photos of deals that I find at the store– I don’t use my camera phone for candids of my family very often. However, I do have some.. and can I tell you just how much I love my little family?  :)

Today I’m just checking in with ya. Keeping it real  in between  all the madness of Black Friday and Cyber monday   Week. :) I thought it would be fun to let you take a peek into what photos (besides the deal ones) I have in my phone right now….

THIS is my favorite Pinot Noir. (Saintsbury Pinot Noir) Yes, I admit to blogging and drinking once in a while. Not to mention, this is a great wine. Something I enjoy with a little of my money saved from couponing. :)

Our Puppy, Bear. He’s not really a puppy anymore.. but more like a 75 pound horse that sleeps on the floor (in my way) while I’m cooking.

George and I recently celebrated 7 years of marriage and visited one of our favorite restaurants in La Jolla. George’s at the Cove. (if you ever get a chance– you MUST go!)

and when I’m not blogging.. I’m spending as much time as I can with these guys. Just a reminder that I am the person behind the blog. While, you may not see me often. I am here :)

    First, I am glad to know I’m not the only one whose photo collection is cluttered with deals I want to remember.

    Second, I love the pictures! Thank you for every ounce of work you put into this site. I know this site is beyond the average full time job, but you do it well!

    I like to see the “behind-the-scenes” – thanks, Josie! Your blog has taught me a lot and now I understand the “how-to’s” of couponing and how to stretch a dollar. I will always remember the concepts and now I always will shop the deals. Happy holidays! It helps to know you are a regular person like all your readers!
