The World of couponing

So I haven't done much lately other than enjoy this world of couponing. I have gotten boxes of granola bars for free this last week, pasta for .49 and some more snacks for free or less than .50. I have a full pantry and have spent less than $50 this month. Way exciting!!!! Brady loves it too cause it stresses me out less with the bills. It has left me open to go buy AJ some much needed clothes. I went to old navy because I had a $5 of a $25 pirchase coupon. So he got some new shirts and some to grow into for next winter. Poor Noble didn't get anything but he has plenty of handme down too I guess. I am just having way to much fun saving lots of money.
Well, moving on. We are now looking at houses again because I assume the bank took someone else's offer on the other house. No one told us we just noticed it is off mls now. We found a house we liked but it was bid up way above what we want to pay. So we are still hunting. I am grateful to have a house now and I am trying to like living here. Somedays are better than others. I guess I just miss having a backyard and lots of counter space to make food. Oh well, there are many people now a days without all of that so I am very blessed for my husband to have a steady job with an income that pays our bills. I do like the friends I am making here and enjoy the sunshine and being outside. I think I am going to take the kids swimming today. It is supposed to be in the 80's again.=)
I hope everyone else is doing well and for those living in St george, enjoy the last days of spring break, for they are coming to an end.

No pics but an update

So I haven't gotten the pics off of my camera so I figured I should at least update.
On the 24th of Feb. AJ turned 3. We had fun arguing with him that he was 3. He insisted that he was two and still insists that he is 2. In a year will have him saying 3! AJ also started preschool. I didn't really have a problem with it. I was afrtaid I would break down after I left but he did great. The teachers had to tell him I was leaving and I could heart him as he was running off that he said bye mom. He is doing better every day. The teacher says he gets better at the routine and is no longer throwing fits in class. So hopefully we will see an improvement at home. AJ also had his first dentist appointment and found out he has NO cavities. Yeah!! I don't think it is because we brush so good because he hardly lets us brush his teeth. I think its just because he got his teeth later. Anyways, I think that is enough about AJ.
Noble. Well, what can I say. He now thinks it is a fun game to run away from mom and have her chase him. He laughs so hard at that. Good thing mom is trying to get in shape so I can run faster than him! Noble is super fast for a 14 month old. By the way he runs and walks you would think the kids been doing it since birth, he hardly falls and has the whole stopping thing down which is something most kids his age haven't figured out. He is really cute and lets us know when he wants to eat by saying "mor mor mor" and trying to climb into his chair. He likes to play with his brother too. Even though AJ isn't quit keen on letting him play with his toys yet. We are still working on sharing but it is coming.
Me, I am trying to get in shape. I have started running after I drop AJ off at school. That way I only have one kid in the jogging stroller and he is usually content. I haven't been up to much else. Just trying to buy a house. Banks are dumb and won't give us an answer. We have waited 4 almost 5 weeks now to hear whether the bank will except our offer or not. So now it is back to square one I guess. We are now looking again at houses. It is difficult to find what we want and one that is in our price range. We are working on it though.
Our family is enjoying the weather and some fun hikes and outings. I have enjoyed the being able to go out lately, its'been great. Hope everyone else is doing well.
