Bailey Scrub

Tracy / January 2, 2015

I mentioned in this post we made an exfoliating body product this week. I’m naming it “Bailey Scrub” since Jessica’s friend, Bailey, first mentioned the idea. Basically, it’s whipped coconut oil with few tablespoons of coffee grounds and a few tablespoons of coffee added.

This Week’s Couponing

This has been a *VERY* good week for couponing. I ended up with 2 FREE reams of paper, plus one additional pack from STAPLES. They run this deal every now and then but I’ve not been brave enough to try…I figured I would this week, and it worked beautifully!!

Paint Party- House Update

Tracy / February 20, 2014

I haven’t been so good at posting house updates. I guess I’ve been busier working than posting. πŸ™‚ Saturday, many of the teens and young adults from our church popped over and helped prime the new kitchen and dining room for paint.
