Discovering The Me in Mommy

Making the most of each day, by saving money & savoring life

Moving…and learning June 12, 2010

Filed under: Uncategorized — discoveringthemeinmommy @ 9:44 am

Growing up, my 8th grade math teacher insisted we use pencils and not pens because mistakes would be made, and the eraser would be much more handy than white out! Until this day, I prefer pencils for hand-calculations.

Unfortunately there is no digital pencil, and I’ve discovered that is not the right host for me at this point in time. So I’m moving! You can find me now at and I hope to see you there!

Since I’m so new to the blogsphere and knew very little about wordpress and blogger, I went by the “sound” of the web address. But with much trial and much error, I’m taking my venture over to the new site. Please click on over — I’d be honored if you’d continue this journey with me!  =)

It’s one of my favorite times of the year! A great way to save money on pampering myself and also for gifts for others. There are current scents that will be on sale, but there are many “Classics” or “Discontinued” items on sale for 74% off!

Starting June 11 – July 5, while supplies last, buy this tote for $2.50 and you’ll get 10% off EVERYTHING!

I’ll probably check it out tomorrow, and then go in June 17-23 to get $5 Wallflowers (you save $7.50)!


School’s out for the summer

I remember my senior college roommate would randomly but enthusiastically sing, “School’s out for the summer!” (And I can actually hear her voice in my head as I type!) Those words use to bring so much excitement to me, calculating final grades and rapidly punching them into the computer, watching to see if the calculation for the final grade would require more paperwork or not; importing those calcuations to Excel and printing them off; checking things off one by one so that the principal would be happy. But this year, there is no school, and there is no summer break!

But I’m still excited for those who will experience their summer break and graduation parties! This summer, we’re doing lots of partying — graduation, weddings, good-byes — and there are mixed feelings for most of those parties. Excitement for the new season but also sadness for the end of a season together.

I’m sure we’ll experience those seasons with our baby girl too. Everyone keeps asking if she’s walking yet, and she’s not. Even though I’m anticipating those first steps, I still love to hear my baby crawl around and will enjoy crawling around the coffee table with her, occasionally popping my head out and saying, “I see you!”
