Strawberry Shortcake

WHO KNEW? Bisquick makes amazingly simple and delicious shortcake!
(Sorry for the bad pics. I ate half of it before I decided to blog about it! A whole piece would have made a much better photo shoot!)

It's so easy!
And if you have the box of Bisquick you probably have everything else on hand as well!

But don't be like me and make it 4 times in less than 2 weeks!

Farm Fresh Eggs

Our neighbors own chickens. And I mean all kinds of chickens! Every now and then she gives us eggs. They are so much better than the store bought eggs.
Look at all of the different colors and sizes.

I'll have to see if I can get some pictures of the chickens one of these days.
They are fun to watch too!
Happy Wednesday!

P.S. Please keep my mom in your prayers. She fell and broke her hip yesterday. She had surgery last night to put in a pin and screws. She'll be in the hospital for 7-10 days.
Thank you!

Coupon Chief Review

You all know how I love to save money!
Coupons are my friend!
So, of course when COUPON CHIEF-( asked me to do a review of their website I was only too willing!
I don't know about you, but whenever I make a purchase on the Internet I do a google search for a code for a discount and/or free shipping! I am all about a sale and I may as well try to find one!
When I browsed the Coupon Chief website I was completely amazed at how many coupon codes they had for HUNDREDS and hundreds of on-line stores! I wish I had known about them before.
I even found AAFES coupons which is the Army Air Force Exchange or the BX for the Air Force. The coupons are submitted by people like you and me. I am definitely going to sign up for their "Pays to Share" program. So if I learn of a new code and submit it to them I will get a kickback every time someone uses it! Easy money I'd say!
The Coupon Chief site will even tell you how reliable the coupon is by showing the success rate.
Another cool feature is their "tags". I did a random search using their Popular Tags and found a 50% off spring dies Sizzix code. That's my kind of code!
If you are looking for an online bargain, check them out!

Happy Birthday, Paisley!

We aren't exactly sure when Paisley was born, but when we adopted her on August 17th last year they told us she was 4-5 months old. And when we had her neutered they told us that she was at least 5 months old, so we decided to call March 17th her birthday, That way we would have an actual date to celebrate and to keep track of her age. And so today we are celebrating not only St. Patrick's Day, but also our puppy's birthday!
Katie made her a new bed by tying fleece around a bed pillow. Isn't it cute?
We also gave her some new toys.
She is getting wet dog food today instead of the dry stuff.
I love my "puppy girl" as I fondly call her. She completes our family.Here are some pics of Paisley with her birthday presents!

Hopefully I will be back with some zoo pics this weekend!
Have a good one!

Baby Calves

The cows next door are having babies left and right. Today when Katie and I were outside with Paisley we spotted 4 of the babies all together in the field. I had to go inside and grab my camera.

There were 2 brown ones, one with a white face

and 2 black ones, one with a white face.
Aren't they darling? I think baby animals are so cute!!!!
