I'm Thiiirsty....

Since its Ryan's Friday.. we're going to sit back, relax, & enjoy not having ANYTHING to do. 

*Ahhhhhhh...That's nice.*

& what better to compliment a lazy day? 
None other than:

Here's what We're having!
 Recipe & Pix compliments of Make it & Love it

"Simply Lemonade brand lemonade (real lemon juice, not from concentrate, seriously delicious), frozen unsweetened raspberries, and ice.  Okay, and a little sugar if desired." 
That's all you need!
  • Blend up some of the juice with the ice.
  • Add frozen raspberries. 
  • Blend that all up again. 
  •  Add some sugar to taste.
  • Then pour and serve.
 Wah-Lah! Delicious summer refreshment... 



It's Friiiiday! It's Friiiday!

No. Not really.

But, it is Ryan's Friday! That means I get my hubbly for a WHOLE 3 days before he goes back on this ridiculous work schedule. But like I said before,  I can't complain!

What do we have planned for the next few days?

Weeeeellll.... we are HOPING to get Ryan's FIRST paycheck on Friday.

We've been broke for so long, that the $$$ is already burning a hole in my pocket, & I don't even have it yet! (& thats NOT good, lemme tell ya...)

*I Swear, I need to join a 12-step program for Window-Shop-aholics*

Today we are just gonna relax, lounge around, and enjoy having no plans... 
because this weekend kicks off the start of what we call

Gimmie that JUICE!

Okay gals, today is a big day...

Today, I'm going to ROCK your WORLD.

*make sure your ready...its pretty awesome... I'll wait...... ready??*

Now, like MOST (if not ALL) you guys&gals out there, I know that right now in this economy life pretty much, well... blows. As in: "Everything I do is so DANG expensive!"

Yea, I know... right?

With house payments, car payments, insurance, doctor bills, pet bills, schools "fundraisers" and so on... the wallet is getting pretty thin. Then add in the groceries for dinner each night, cleaning products to keep up with the family's unending mess & rolls on top of rolls of toilet paper since everyone seems to think the plumbing needs a challenge every other day... All your left with is moths & cobwebs in that wallet... am I right?

Yea, I thought so. 

With all that Moo-lah flying out the windows, I'm lucky if I don't die from the dagger-glare my hubby thows at me at the small whisper of a hint at anything slightly resembling a 
Date Night...

"But Hunny! i got this really good coupon on (insertRANDOMdiscountsiteHERE) 
& we only have to spend $90!
We haven't ever been to a fencing class...It's a great deal!" 

You can toss THAT idea right in the trash with rest of it.


Now I know what your thinking:
"Geez, Jaimie... I know all that... I thought you were going to tell me something GOOD." 
& I am! 

Meet your NEW best friend:
Now, before you start thinking
"Oh-no... not ANOTHER dang coupon site..."

Hear me out.
Instead of your regular discount sites geared toward the young&single & ran by big corporations with no real involvement, Juice In The City is different!

It's ran 
That's right!
Juice In The City comes with a mission:

That means that Juice In The City has LOCAL moms, called Local Business Consultants or LBCs, That go around to the businesses that THEY THEMSELVES have used & enjoyed to get discounts that all of us will actually WANT to use. Not random opera, back-alley Indian food, jam-packed Hot Yoga classes in a city an hour away with no daycare, or the aforementioned break your back fencing.

No, this means:
  • Bookstores you love
  • Bakeries you want
  • Coffee shops you adore
  • Restaurants you'd go to more often
  • Toy stores for your little munchkins that wont tear your wallet to shreds!
And way way WAY more!
It doesn't GET any better than that!

Take a look:

Here is a little blurb from Juice In The City themselves about this awesomeness:

" We believe that local businesses need authentic mom recommendations more than ever and that they deserve a chance to survive and thrive and give back to our communities. We feature a picture and personal write up by every mom who sources one of our deals.
We believe that local moms deserve a daily kick in the pants to go have fun in their local areas, and that they should be able to "dip their toes in" and try new things out without spending too much of their family's hard earned money. Sometimes we need that kick in the pants to go experience our local bookstore or independent coffee shop instead of resorting to online ordering or big chain conveniences. We are passing the savings along to moms every day.

We believe that our sales force, our mom LBCs, should be able to work hyper-locally - at home! - with flexible work schedules so that they can spend more time with their children. We enable moms to have fun, make money, be their own boss, and become local heroes; in their communities and in their own homes. "

Don't you just love that attitude? Whats more important to a community than moms??

Yup. That's what I thought you'd say.

& even better, Juice In The City is STILL expanding! this little company that started out in San Fransisco is now in La, Atlanta, Denver, Phoenix, plus tons of others...
and starting in July:

I'm telling ya I'm, STOKED!

And grabbing the deals is super simple too!
 Just print --> And GO!

If your like me, anything that easy, is AWESOME.
If you want the deal, you can get it. DONE DEAL.

None of that " You need (X) amount of people to sign up before you can buy!" crud that you see on other discount sites. (Bleh!)

Deals generally expire at midnight….and they accept all major credit cards.
  Some purchased vouchers are even good for 6 months!

If you accidentally let your voucher “expire”, you can still get the equivalent value of services you paid from the vendor, you are just not guaranteed that specific deal.

You heard enough?

The Switch

Have you checked out this weeks 
Photo Swap? : Scenes Of Summer
My shot for:
 ...Go ahead, I'll wait...

...I'm sooooo in love with Summertime...
 So happy it's finally here!

Just watched this movie

It was really cute!

Here is the IMDb Summary:
An unmarried 40-year-old woman turns to a turkey baster in order to become pregnant. Seven years later, she reunites with her best friend, who has been living with a secret: he replaced her preferred sperm sample with his own.

I really thought this was a great movie... there were alot of relationship quirks that I could relate to with an old "buddy" of mine. What I love is that they are the most awesome-est of friends for the longest time, which adds that whole element of 
"You KNOW me!" or "I Knooow you dude..." 
but... (because of things i don't want to give away...) 
the long term friendship that they have, actually ends up causing alot of funny twists & turns & inside jokes that will have you giggling out loud. 
 PLUS: I absolutely LOVE Jeff Goldblum & his sarcastic wit!
:D Definitely worth watching!

4 outta 5 stars 
on the PocketLego movie scale!!

What in the WORLD?!

Holy poo on a Tuesday morning!

It has been SOOOOOOO busy around our house this past week, that I have unfortunately not been very attentive to my blog & all of my lovely blogger friends!

(Im SOOOOOO sorry dearies!!!)

Ryan has recently started his new job (YAY!) at GMCR ... which is absolutely wonderful, but since he works the swing shift, it makes our 1 car scenario slightly irritating. With a 15 year old in the last week of Freshman year of High School, not having a vehicle at a split second notice is NOT acceptable. So with dance practices, car washes, cramming for end of year finals at friends houses, preparing for her summer vacation in Hawaii, & a boyfriend who seems to need her within close proximity at all times or fear of DEATH.. 
(or something like that.) I have had to drive Ryan to & from work, 30 mins each everyday. Fine enough in its own.. gives me time to think ..sing at the TOP of my lungs. :)

Along with Ryan's new job does come some good perks...

* A new Keurig Machine
* Discounts on coffee
* A wonderful benefits package
* Discounts on ANY Energy Star appliances
...among like a trillionbillion other amazing things!

So, I can't really complain now can I? 

(Now, Doesn't he look sexy in his hair&beard nets... Calls himself the "SexySanta")


TODAY is the big day!! 

Danielle is taking her FIRST ever airplane ride to go visit our Momma & spend 
a whole two weeks with her... in HAWAII !!!

Yea, I know. Right now, I kinda hate her too...

but What the HECK am I gonna do for the next two weeks? 

Dani & I hang out almost everyday! & with Ryan working the swing shift, 
my life is going to be especially  booooooooring!!!

Maybe this means I will spend more time tending to my very ignored blog... 


I have also received some wonderful postcards! take a look!


Only 1 more week to check out the MFB feature!

MFB Question of the Week

If you could pick ONE book to recommend to everyone you know, what would you pick?

Oooh Thats a tough one, Uhm... There are two I think:

5 people you meet in heaven
I'm not an incredibly religious person, & this is definitely not a religious style book. But the characters, & the journey, & the way the words are laid out so perfectly that you can smell the ocean, feel the sand, hear the fire crackling...

Sh*t My Dad Says
I am all about humor, & learning with humor... & this book has both, plus alot lot LOT more. I have never laughed outloud so much. LOVE this book!

Both of these books sit proudly on my bookshelf.. I adore them both & frequently revisit thier pages... Both of these are books that EVERYONE should read atleast once...

What about you???

Now make sure you head over & check Lauren out!
