Monday Mash-up #1

Linking up today with Mrs. Monologues for Monday Mashup. Lots of randoms ahead.

so umm I can't tell you the last time I was this excited to watch "The Bachelorette".  I mean who isn't excited for Emily to find true love. I can't wait to watch. eep. Are you watching?

I'm really missing Minnesota lately. Well I mean all the time, but this weekend was bad. I miss my family, friends, downtown Minneapolis, Twins games, concerts.  I could go on but I will stop.  I looked at Facebook photos of outings with friends and family so much. I hate it. When does it stop?

This weekend I went for my first Junior League meeting and LOVED IT! It was so great to be in a room with so many successful women. I'm super excited about the volunteer work I've been doing and all the stuff yet to come. I met some very fun ladies and even my neighbor. How weird!

I love coupons, or coupies as I call them. No, you won't see me on "Extreme Couponing".  We only buy stuff we need and sometimes give the stuff we can get for free or low price to the food shelf and other organizations. Friday night I asked  I begged Ry guy to hit up the stores with me. I hate shopping on Saturdays and Sundays. With a lot of convincing he came with. We hit up Tarjay, Dillion's and Hy-vee. We spent $230, but saved $129 buckaroos in coupies. WOOT! People always ask how I do it. I just clip coupons for the things I use. Wait for them to go on sale and save. 

I had a hard time yesterday being Mother's Day and all. I hated that I didn't get to see my Mama. We did talk several times, but its just not the same. I can't put into words how much I miss her. 

(last year on her day of birth at Benihana)

I came across a very sad story on another blog about a puppy (who had been named Walter) who was thrown from a car in Nashville. here is the blog I read the story on. Tiffany has linked up more of the story on her blog.  I lost it, literally. Saturday afternoon I was so angry, upset, crying my eyes out. OMG it was bad. I felt bad for Ry guy. I couldn't imagine ANYONE doing that to an animal. Makes me sick to my stomach.

 I saw this on Pinterest and it touched my heart. Walter passed away last week. RIP Walter. Dexter and I pray that you will find the peace, happiness and love in Heaven. 

I hope everyone takes a little time to hold their fur baby, child, hubby, sister, friend, anyone a little tighter tonight. This is such a cruel world and love can make such a difference. 

What's new in your world?

  1. That is horrible! Omg I am so upset! Why would anyone do that?!

  2. Sorry about your loss friend.

    Also, haven't watched TB is years, but tonight I decided to join the madness again. Kind of excited.

  3. I told my husband about this last night and we both were really upset. I just don't understand why people don't let the dogs go or drop them off at a humane society? I made sure to give my 2 fur babies extra love last night!

  4. I'm excited for the Bachelorette too!!

    Sorry you are missing home, I will be in the same boat in a couple months. Sounds like you are doing lots to get involved, which I'm sure helps!!

  5. So how about Dexter looks rather dapper in those pictures you've posted. He's a handsome little fella. I bet him and Maggie would get along. =)

  6. I don't normally watch The Bachelor/Bachelorette shows because I got so disheartened by them but I am SO excited for this season!! I just love Emily and thinks she is a doll. And I need to get that dog tag for my sweetie, so true!


I love hearing from you. Thanks for taking the time to read about Dexter Morgan and his adventures.
