Then out of nowhere a blog "challenge" if you will came about on a public group im in. So here I am and I'm going to try and keep this thing going. Bare with me as I make changes and update content. Feel free to sift through my old posts, you just might learn something new about me....

Cookies & Coffee - that's how I roll...

Er... I mean I roll my toilet paper under. That's right - we are back to toilet paper talk - because folks I was one of the first 200 posters and I won a month supply of Cottonelle toilet paper. Thanks to Mom Blogger's for this chance. I just had to share. I know it's silly, and well, it's just some good old fashion TP - but when you are pinching pennies you learn to appreciate the value of free toilet paper. Plus it's not crappy (haha) kind, it's the soft nice kind. So that's my excitement of the morning.

Oh, those cookies & coffee are exciting though. They are just the break and bake Fred Meyer brand cranberry, oatmeal, walnut kind - but they have quickly become my favorite. So very yummy, pick some up if you can. You won't be disappointed - well you will if you don't like oatmeal, or nuts, or cranberries... but if you are a fan of the above mentioned, then you will LOVE these as a treat.

Last random blurb-it of the morning - I should be getting a UPS package today. 4 new bras (they had a buy 2 get 2 free deal) from Lane Bryant. A little back story on my giddiness here... I have a big chest. I mean the ladies were coming in at a size 36 or 38 D before the baby. Then during pregnancy I got up to a 40 E. I was seeing visions of Dolly Parton in my head. Well after the HORRENDOUS engorgement that took place (I am telling you they were as big as my head, it was horrific even to my hubs) they settled in at roughly a 40DD. So here I sit, I stopped nursing after a month, so like 11 weeks ago, and I am still wearing my nursing bras. It's all that fits. Kris doesn't mind the peek-a-boo action, but I personally have a fear that the sheer weight of my gals will make the "snap" feature weak and it will break open when I'm wearing a white shirt in the checkout line at Target. I'm ready for a new bra.

My mother in love introduced me to Lane Bryant. My mom had mentioned it before too, but I just it as a big ladies store and didn't want to admit I belonged there. Well, I do. I'm a big lady. My mother in love has been more than generous with her LB credit card and bought me 3 pairs of jeans that fit well, some shirts and for my birthday I told her I needed bras. She gave me a very generous gift card so I could get some. Normally the bras run about 35 bucks each, some are 28 some are 40, but you get the idea. They were having a great buy 2 get 2 free sale! I didn't feel like going to the store, it's kinda far away, so I went to the much closer mall and got myself sized at a bra shop, then went online for some shopping! I picked out 2 sports bras (they appear to be great big girl support which I can wear to work out and also have one for under sweatshirts), a back shaping expensive bra, and a then a pretty black lacy number, which I am hoping the hubs likes. I also happen to have a 20% off coupon thanks to it being my birthday and their snazy email list - so I walked away with 4 bras for $72 bucks - that included shipping and tax! Woot! I should get them via UPS today. I am sure I will rave about my new bras later.

CONGRATS on the TP win!!
Ha, i would get excited to win that much TP. I HATE spending money on that kind of stuff. No fun at all! :)
And, I wish you could give me some of your large boobs. I would gladly take some :))

I hear your excitement on the bra deal! It is robbery what they charge for bras - knowing we have to have them. I used to to be tiny (32B) - then I think birth control grew the girls...32/34 C depending on the make-model and now with pregnancy... my cup runneth over.. special sizes are even worse! $72 for 4 - so exciting!
