Thursday Thirteen

As you probably have guessed by now, there has been a lot going on in our house. Honestly, I don't know where to begin with honest-to-blog post so I will take advantage of the fact that it's Thursday and do a much needed Thursday Thirteen update post (sorta). Tada - here it is!

1. My husband has a new job. He was not looking for one but sometimes God just makes something happen that you aren't expecting!

2. This job puts him on the road most of the year as the tour bus driver for a Christian band. In our eyes, it is full-time ministry supporting the band.

3. In completely related news, in the not so distant future we will be moving. Yes, again! This time to the Nashville, TN area.

4. We now have a second grader! She has always had great teachers but I like this years the best I think. It's me! (lol) I've been thinking about homeschooling since she was little and now we are doing it! Her first day was Monday. Want proof? Cause I just gotta share this cuteness.

5. I'm not in college right now. Maybe I'll go back someday but for now I'm feeling good with my decision.

6. It seems to be getting to be fall here in Wyoming. Yesterday and today it hasn't even hit 70 degrees but it is supposed to get a bit warmer next week so we'll see.

7. I'm still really "addicted" to Pretty Little Liars. I don't care what other people say, it is a good mystery show.

8. I'm starting to go through our stuff and purge things before we get to the packing stage of the move.

9. If you don't hear from me, it's likely I got lost somewhere in a closet. lol

10. I love that we have video calling available to use in our day and age. It is so nice to see the person you are talking to. (for example, my hubby)

11. The kiddo pictured above also just turned 8 years old. Eight!

12. I'm so thankful for the people in my life. 

13. Also, I'm thankful that God is with us every moment of every day.

Saving Money With Groupon Goods

This is a sponsored post. All opinions are mine.

By now I think most of us have heard of Groupon. It's a great website where you can save lots of money getting deals on different restaurants, massages, nail salons, hair salons and more!

But, there is a new part of Groupon called Groupon Goods where you can buy many more things that you need daily. There are many categories to browse through -- Groceries, Jewelry, Home and Garden, Fashion, Entertainment, and even Toys for your kids can be found. Oh, and did I mention Electronics?! That might be my favorite of all, honestly.

Because this is Groupon we're talking about, all the products are at great prices too. The products change frequently but here are a few examples of products available right this moment.
They offer free shipping on orders of $34.99 and up. Plus there are free returns!

Oh and let's not forget, for a lot of us, what is coming up soon....back to school shopping! If you just can't drag your kiddos out for one more shopping trip, simply shop online! Here is just a small sampling of some of the things you can find: personalized labels, backpacks, crayons, chalk, flash cards, scissors, colored pencils, and markers.

I know I have been using it to shop for birthday presents. You know, great presents at a discounted price?! Win win in my book. I'm sure you will find at least one thing you love. Enjoy!
