photo-show-tellHappy Friday! We had a crazy week! We actually just moved (so you may notice that my regular photo show & tell table is not pictured) and man.. moving stinks! Hubby’s friends helped him load the rental truck this past Saturday so that helped immensely. My goal was to have Asher’s room unpacked by Saturday night and I was able to meet that goal. I wanted his room to “look and feel” just like his room in our old house by the time we put him to bed. Saturday night was a rough night of sleep for him, but he adapted to the change really quick and has napped and slept like a champ ever since. My kitchen is almost unloaded. But besides that, we still have a ton of boxes that we need to unpack. Simple things like my dog’s brush or rubber gloves or dishwasher detergent are packed away in boxes right now. Maddening. :)

Our shopping trip to Publix wasn’t a huge trip. But we were able to stock up on a few necessities (hello brownie mix and bagels!). We also have put our coop membership on hold so we needed to get some veggies too. We haven’t been eating healthy this past month leading up to our move because life has been so hectic.  I’m hoping to get back into the swing of regularly cooking again soon and will either reinstate our coop membership or join a new coop or start shopping for produce at Aldi and local farmstands. Not sure yet what we are going to do. All I know is that I need to start cooking!

Please remember that you do not see any chicken or ground beef purchased because we have stocked up on boneless, skinless chicken breasts and ground beef with Zaycon Foods. **Right now Zaycon Foods is taking reservations for their upcoming Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breast Events!

Well we had planned on doing a small shopping trip but as you can see from the picture above, our shopping trip ended up being pretty large! My favorite deals today were also probably the most practical. I was very excited about the Reynolds Wrap and Finish Dishwasher Detergent deals. I love saving money on practical items that I use almost every day! I also couldn’t resist getting Suddenly Salad Pasta mixes for $0.11 each. We’ve been running on empty lately and while I prefer cooking entirely from scratch, it just isn’t happening. So things like hot dogs and pasta salad mix are perfect for my life right now!

Please remember that you do not see any chicken or ground beef purchased because we have stocked up on boneless, skinless chicken breasts and ground beef with Zaycon Foods. **Right now Zaycon Foods is taking reservations for their upcoming Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breast Events and Lean Ground Beef Events!

Photo Show & Tell and One Year Family Day Celebration

This post may contain a link to an affiliate. See my disclosure policy for more information.

New here? Like us on Facebook below:

photo-show-tellWhat a week we’ve had! This past weekend my brother was in town and we spent many hours with him swimming and eating and then swimming some more. Asher went to bed late all weekend and this week he’s been compensating for that by sleeping in every morning. Nope. I’m not complaining!

This Tuesday, August 19th also marked Family Day for us. It was one full year since Asher and I arrived in the states after traveling for 30+ hours across the globe. August 19th, one year ago, we were reunited with my hubby (he met us in Washington DC to fly home with us during our last flight) and we officially became a family of 3 in the U.S. This past year flew by. It’s funny. Those first couple of months were rough. Really rough. But looking back, I can barely remember the difficulty of it. I just see Asher taking his first steps and then almost immediately learning to run, getting his first tooth, speaking his first words, speaking his first phrases, singing his first songs, laughing for the first time unprompted after realizing he could scare the dog by pushing a box towards him, running around giggling as daddy chases him, getting messy as he eats with a fork by himself, asking for a kiss when he gets an “owie”,  the list goes on and on. It has been an amazing year. We celebrated with Ethiopian Food from the restaurant Queen of Sheba, a cake and dressing Asher in a traditional Ethiopian outfit. Knowing that adoption does come with so much loss, someday Asher may not want to celebrate Family Day (I hope this isn’t the case – but it will be his decision). But for now, we will celebrate it with cake and food and thank God that we are able to be a family of three.

Dinner was Ethiopian food complete with injera. Asher loved it as did we.

pstAsher not so patiently waiting for cake

pstAsher wearing a traditional Ethiopian outfit made and purchased in Ethiopia. 

pstAnd now back to this week’s Photo Show & Tell. This week’s shopping trip was thrown together in about a half hour. Hubby and I had just put Asher to bed and it was getting late. So we threw coupons together and Jeff ran to the store and quickly got everything as the store closed. We will be going back for more Planters Peanuts and for more GoGo Pouches. We also had rainchecks for the Sparkle paper towels and for the Jif/Ziploc deal. So you won’t be able to do those deals unless you have rainchecks.

Please remember that you do not see any chicken or ground beef purchased because we have stocked up on boneless, skinless chicken breasts and ground beef with Zaycon Foods. **Right now Zaycon Foods is taking reservations for their upcoming Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breast Events and Lean Ground Beef Events!

publix-photo-show-and-tellWhat a rainy week this has been! It seems like every day it has rained and rained! Today has been almost non-stop rain mixed in with some impressive rounds of thunder and lightning. When my son woke up in his crib this morning, I could hear him saying “thunder thunder”. I’ve also taught him the song “Rain Rain Go Away” as it seems rather appropriate right now!

This week’s shopping trip was completed by my hubby and Asher. I sent them to the store with the list and coupons and they did a pretty good job. Especially considering that my son is teething and was not necessarily the most fun to be around when they made their trip ;) Hubby did mess up the Old El Paso deal, but I’ll let it slide knowing that my son was giving him a run for his money while they shopped!

Please remember that you do not see any chicken or ground beef purchased because we have stocked up on boneless, skinless chicken breasts and ground beef with Zaycon Foods. **Right now Zaycon Foods is taking reservations for their upcoming Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breast Events and Lean Ground Beef Events!

photo-show-tellHappy Friday! This weekend is Back to School Tax Free Weekend! Are you going school shopping this weekend? Since Asher isn’t school-age yet, we won’t be doing any major shopping. We did go to Publix though and we did get a lot of food for just $28.84! I forgot two very important coupons on my trip. I meant to bring the $2/$2 Publix produce coupon and also the $5/$20 Target Meat coupon. But I forgot them at home. Regardless, we were able to do really well – especially factoring in the fact that we got organic milk, Half & Half and a dozen eggs! How did you do this week? I would love to hear!

If you shop at a Publix that accepts Winn Dixie coupons, you might notice that every week I use a $5.00 off $30.00 Winn Dixie Enjoy the City coupon while grocery shopping. Right now Enjoy the City coupon books are on sale for as low as $1.00 each! When I factor the cost of the coupon book with the $20.00 worth of coupons in it, each book is a $19.00 MONEYMAKER! Go HERE to see the Enjoy the City deal.

Please remember that you do not see any chicken or ground beef purchased because we have stocked up on boneless, skinless chicken breasts and ground beef with Zaycon Foods. **Right now Zaycon Foods is taking reservations for their upcoming Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breast Events and Lean Ground Beef Events!

photo-show-tellI knew today’s shopping trip would be both small and fun. There were some deals I was really excited about (free Purell, cheap Powerade, cheap bath tissue and cheap tampons and pads). My grocery cart ended up being full which I didn’t expect (it was because of the four Powerade packs). I saved even more money than I expected (78.8%) and spent pretty much what I wanted to although I have been wanting to spend under $20 each week which just isn’t happening.  Today was also coop pickup day so I didn’t have to buy any produce since I have a bin full of about 25 lbs of fruits and veggies sitting on my counter!

photo-show-tellHow is your summer going? Have you gone away on vacation? We have been staying close to home (i.e. home) this summer. We’ve spent a lot of time at the pool with Asher. He loves to be outside and as much as I like to chase him around and play with him outside, it is just so so hot to do that right now! So swimming has become a fun activity for all of us! Yesterday I posted a little about the past year in Thursday’s Thoughts. I know many of you have asked for updates and now that we are nearing one year since bringing Asher home, I decided to blog about all of the experiences we have encountered both before and after bringing him home!

Did you go grocery shopping this week? How did you do? I wasn’t overly excited about this week’s sale. I was happy to get a great deal on Weight Watchers Frozen Novelties and I was also excited about getting feta cheese cheap. I like to stock up on feta and then freeze it. Many of you have asked if freezing feta changes the cheese. I haven’t found that to happen. I usually put feta in both hot pasta dishes and cold pasta salad dishes and I haven’t noticed any difference. So if you decide to stock up, I highly recommend freezing it so that it doesn’t go bad. :)
