If you're reading this, you have been tagged to share your Scrimps
Things I SPLURGE on:
Pedicures: I Loved getting pedicures when I was pregnant because I couldn't reach my own feet. Now I love getting them just because!
Bath & Body soaps: I love the Fresh Pineapple & Kitchen Lemon scents. I love having them in every room that has a sink! My boys love the Blueberry foam soap in their bathroom! It makes washing your hands fun to do!
Scrapbook Supplies: This is why I still have a job in this industry, need I say more??
Photos: You know you develop too many photos when the girls @ the counter know you by name & have your envelope ready for you when they see you coming!
iTunes & CD's: I love music & the emotions/ memories that I have when listening to various artists/songs.
Ornaments: Now that all of the Christmas decorations are hitting the stores, I am in heaven. I have an obsession with Christmas ornaments. I really wish I could say that I buy ONE new ornament a year. Truth is, I buy several.
Books: I don't like to wait to check out a book from the Library. I love to flip thru the pages of a brand new book. I do like to share & loan my books out to friends & family so I might be helping someone else to Scrimp in this area :).
Things I SCRIMP on:
Haircuts/color: I have a hard time paying $45.00 plus a tip to get my hair done. I won't even go into the cost of getting my hair colored. So, my color comes out of a box from Target.
Haircuts for the boys: With four boys, John & I are learning how to cut their hair. It will sure save us money thru the years.
Greeting Cards: I refuse to buy/pay for a greeting card. This is where my splurge on scrapbook supplies comes in handy! I can make my own.
Make Up: Since I don't wear very much make up, I buy the basics @ Target.
Clothes: I don't know if this counts as scrimping, but I love to find deals on clothes for myself & the boys! I used to hit the sale rack @ Baby Gap once a week when Tanner & Carter were babies & scored some major deals. Now I just don't have the time once a week to do that.
I am sure I will think of more. If I do, I will add to this post later!
Have a fun day!

Whew-it's over. What a fun night. I am the activities committee chair at church. I am in charge (along with my committee) of throwing all of the parties at church. I normally love to throw parties and get togethers. I like all of the fun planning and crafty things that go along with parties. This party throwing for the whole ward is on whole other level. We planned the Trunk or Treat activity for about 300 people. Lots of time and planning went into this party. John and are so grateful and thankful that my parents were able to come up and help us with soccer games and the boys during Trunk or Treat. Thanks Mom and Dad. I think everyone had a great time. I know our boys sure did. I think I saw Garrett once during the entire evening(that's why I don't have any pictures of him). Everyone enjoyed the bounce houses, a hot dog dinner, cotton candy, face painting, a cake walk with unlimited cupcakes, fishing for prizes, hay rides, a costume parade and of course Trunk or Treat. It was a great night. We all crashed when we got home & slept very well. Now I am moving right along and am gearing up for our Christmas party. Are you ready Camie :)? Have a great Sunday.

We sure enjoyed the Field Trip to the Pumpkin Farm! We got to take a train ride, pick a pumpkin off the vine, feed the goats, take a hay ride, jump in the hay bounce, play on the slides, & visit with our friends! I love Fall & all of the activites that accompany it! Stay tuned for more PP pictures. The older boys want to go! Happy Fall Ya'll!

P.S. I was trying to take pictures while pushing Garrett & Brody in the stroller. A few might be blurry & not in the best lighting. I was just happy to capture the moment!
