4- Dawns (1.00 ea)
1- Starbucks drink (2.89) (rob likes it, needed $2 filler)
4- .50 off dawn
Total After Sales/Coupons------$5.09
used $4 in EB------------------$1.09 giftcard
Long story short, the Dawns ended up being free because $2 coupons + $2 EB= $4 = Free & that is the only reason i bought it since i have so much lying around.

Now Big Love: did u see the season finale? Things i never imagined. What will season 4 hold? A wedding? Getting comfy with new daughter? Ray Henry sending the cops to get Roman, only to find him dead? What about Alby? Will Margene become as famous as Bill for Homeplus? And will they ever get the damn casinos going? So many questions, zero answers, but one thing is for sure if you thought season 3 was a wild ride, i have a feeling season 4 will top it! On a downing note, it will probably be 2010 before this will come to light, 9 frickin months....ughhhh the agony.

- So I decided I'd share with you my menu of dinners this week: Monday - Bourbon Breaded Chicken w/ Fried Rice; Tuesday - Soft Tacos; Wednesday - Chicken ala king with biscuits; Thursday - Cheeseburgers with tator tots or sweet potato fries; Friday - Roast Beef (pot roast) with carrots and red skinned potatoes; Saturday - Pork chops; Sunday - Bertolli Chicken Parm oven baked meal (we're going to a new mall and super target this afternoon so I wanna an easy, throw in oven meal)
- Couponer? Check out the preview for Sunday inserts here! Need to order some coupons? Check out the couponer clippers, I live in Florida (they are based there) so it only takes me 2 days to get my order once it's sent.
- Keep an eye out in April for the Skintamate Shave Gel/Cream sale at Walgreens & CVS. Should be able to get it free after RR or EB....great time to stock up, I can never find deals of women's shaving cream.
- And just to note I didn't publish my last week walgreens run so here is the short version. I bought I got 6 candy bars, 8 Dove go fresh Deordorants, 3 boxes of tissues. I used $12 in RR and put $8.?? on my Giftcard. Got back $10 RR. (I need to re-stock tissues because we've all been sick this month & now i have a stock-pile of deordorants just like Rob, I'd guess a year worth, and no I don't think I'm crazy just frugally practical :)

And I finially, after a long wait and headache, got an old navy coupon for $50 off a $100 purchase with a dress. I'm gonna get one of those long ones on the new commercial, here, I missed out on the $75 coupon again, shucks! And a couple minutes after I got my $50 coupon they were all gone. Is this a conspiracy?
Well, I just got an email saying they don't have a scanner available right now but i'm onthe reserve list. They'll keep me posted , hopefully one will come up soon, i can't wait!
Did I tell ya'all that I got an A in my government class? Let's pray that math shall go the same (so far an A but 3/5 of class left) so I can bump my GPA up, my goal is to be 3.0 by years end, just 2 points away.

I also got my Coupon Clippers coupons in the mail today, they were mailed tuesday, I used the degree ones in the Walgreens transaction below.
Now i'm keeping fingers crossed that I get at least a $50/$100 coupon for old navy tonight!
Rinse turkey discard giblets/neck.
Combine first 7 ingredients in large pot and boil until sugar/salt is dissolved. Remove from heat and add oranges.
Add water ( i added some ice to) once brine is room temp add turkey. Place in frig until ready to cook, recommened 24-48 hours. I went with the longest!
When ready to cook I used an oven bag and followed the directions for a turkey of my wieght. Although at thanksgiving I did not used a bag and it turned out fine. But pour oil over the bird before cooking with either method. It took about 2 1/2 hours. I also stuffed 1/2 an orange and a chopped onion into the bird while it roasted.
This is my turkey dinner. The turkey was moist and had a hint of apple flavor to it.

My mom had breast cancer when i was 2, so it's always kinda been around in my life. When I was 21 I went to a Planned Parenthood to get some birth control and a check up. The nurse practitioner would not give me any birth control because she said my breasts tissue felt "lumpy" possibly fiber cystic tissue but "could" maybe be cancer. So she referred me to Dr and said i could return after their permission. Well the first Dr was a surgeon i believe and she didn't offer me much options. I got a sonogram and she said i could keep monitoring it or have a prophylactic mastectomy and suggested that my mom get tested for the breast cancer gene. The Dr my mom saw for this tested her and i eventually became her patient because i didn't like the first Dr. And a few months lady, at age 21 I found out my mom was positive for the gene. Next step was me but since i wasn't married yet and so young they didn't want me to get tested yet. Well by the next visit i was married and no longer 21 so they said if u want to get tested then lets do it. And so i did and about 6 wks after i had the test i got the results. I pretty much thought they would be positive. When i was a kid i thought i would get cancer just because my mom had gotten it.
So it was positive. I had thought i wanted to get rid of my breasts asap but i guess i just didn't know enough to fully commit to it. So i had a several tests and just went to Dr every since to check'em out for a few years. Then in December of 2007 my aunt discovered she had breast cancer and that it was not the first stage. I think it was that event that made me consider my original intentions of having a mastectomy. In my mind I didn't want to die and leave my future kids motherless because i waited to get cancer; i didn't want to have to take time off work and maybe lose my house or just have to suffer or my family, if i thought i could avoid it. So Last spring i told my new cancer Dr in TN that i was seriously considering it, he completely agreed and made me an appointment with a surgeon. A couple months later, on May 19th, I went into surgery and it took 7 hours. I was told just before they put me under that my Dr was going to try to save my nipples and put the implants in. He originally was going to take it all and put in expanders and over the summer they'd slowly stretch my skin until implants would fit and manufacture some nipples. So I didn't really know what i'd wake up, but since for weeks i'd been thinking i'd be flat as a bored and hide out in my house. I woke up and i had my new fake boobs and my nipple grafted back on. This was my first major hospital visit, it really wasn't too bad. It was kinda nice not having to get up to pee LOL. It's now march and my boobs are healed, although i imagine they still have healing like maybe thickening of the skin or fading of the scars. I did have some minor complications with healing and i believe because of that one of my nipples does not "function" but maybe some more grafted will fix that or tattooing to complete the process. And they are shaped differently now too, my boobs. But I'm happy with them.
I could still get breast cancer but because i have such little breast tissue left it reduces my chances. That doesn't mean I can't get ovarian cancer or pancreatic cancer or anything else that might be related to the gene i have. And yes, my future sons and daughters might get this gene and continue to pass it on. I will still have to see an oncologist every year and may need to redo the boobs in the future (breast implants don't last forever, although my mom has had hers most of my life). I don't feel pressured to have kids, which was advised to me when my test results were given. Having kids before is supposed to reduce breast cancer risk, and cancer treatments can potentially make u sterile. I'm glad with my choice and don't miss my old boobs, just my piercings but that will hopefully change sometime in the future.
Two of my favorite causes or important things i support are animals, like dogs, humane society and stuff and cancer issues foundations. So take care of your pets, they deserve it; and get tested, get your routine exams and don't hesitate or it will be too late.
(I was trying to get the photos of me and Zoey under the recipe but um, i'm not to blog savy, that's me a couple weeks after the re-dye job and zoey in the kithen watching me make the meatballs)
I went to walgreens cause i didn't go yesterday when the sales started. Big mistake! They were out of the Glade sense and spray and lasting impressions. I plan on going back tomorrow because my fav cashier ( i almost check out with her exclusively) wasn't there, maybe her day off, so i decided to not get my deals that would be free because the coupons are technically 1 cent more than the cost and once i had a lady say (actually twice) that i couldn't use it, although a manager told me they could adjust it anytime if i asked because i complained. My fav cashier already knows this and is very smart about coupons! So i'll ask her when they'll be getting in anymore, get a raincheck maybe, hit up the next 2 walgreens to check to see if they have'em. I have a ton of coupons and 3 expire this week so i hope somebody can get'em, i'd hate to waste bogo coupons.
Also, i just want to remind ya'all that u can save on food by checking out this place (very minited states) , it's like angel food ministries. Buy a food of food for discounted price.
