This is way overdue, but I wanted to take a minute to say a personal thank you to all my readers. I may not have 1,000's of followers and readers like other blogs, but they can't even come close to having the kind of people reading that I do!
There is something that happens every week that I am so touched by from you. It might be a nice email or comment, or letting me know of a way that you have helped someone else. It can be meeting someone in the store who recognizes us and says the nicest things, or reading your blog's and telling my husband a funny story from your family.
It is a joke around here when I start telling my husband about an email or story about a reader. He always says to me, "you know that you have never met them sweetheart, right?!" But it doesn't feel that way to me! I feel like I have made so many friends that I have actually never met personally. It is kinda a weird thing!
This week was extra busy getting ready for my school to start and for the kids to go back. I want to personally thank 2 readers that made a big difference in my attitude this week!
First, Joann, who I have met personally but through my blog. We had to exchange some SR stuff and she came by the house. When she did she brought 2 HUGE meals with her and coupons! Not only did she bring coupons, but she took the time to print off the baby coupons and get this... she even CUT THEM OUT FOR ME! Thank you so much!
Second, Lelee! Look how cool this is ( picture above!) I posted last week about the Chipotle deal, buy anything on Tue or Wed. bring your receipt BACK on tax free weekend (this weekend) and you get the same items FREE again. The catch is that it was only good at Texas stores.
So Lelee went out to eat on Tue. and MAILED me her receipt from Virginia!! What a surprise when I opened the envelope. I kept laughing and trying to explain how crazy cool this lady is to my husband! Who would have thought of such a sweet thing! My son was even impressed, and at 13 that is hard to do. So we all went out to eat on Friday night!
That is him below eating his free burrito curiosity of Lelee!
So my point is that I wanted to say think you for all that you bring into our lives and for all the nice things that you say and do for our family. I wish I could have a chance to meet everyone personally and thank you for taking time out of your day to stop by here and see a little of our lives!
Thank you, to you 2 ladies for whatever prompted you this week to think of us! Sometimes, I have a little feeling that there is something that I need to do for someone, even if it is as small as a phone call or email and I don't do it. I usually find out later that friend needed a little help or had been sick and I could have made a difference for them. So I am trying to be better about paying attention and following through with those little feelings!
O.K. enough of that, and I will get back to why you are here and the deals! Thank you again!
