$1 Off Skinny Bagel Sandwich at Brueggers!

Go here to print a $1 off coupon for Bruegger's new Skinny Bagel Sandwiches.  I love their sandwiches for lunch especially the Turkey Lurkey!

Corned Beef, Cabbage, and Potatoes - Happy St. Patrick's Day!

All day at work, all I could think about was what was in my Crock Pot and how incredible my house was going to smell when I got home!  Yep, its St. Patty's Day and we always make Corned Beef, Cabbage, and Red Skinned Potatoes!

Before I left for work, I washed the potatoes and put them in the Crock Pot.  I then put the meat on top and added the seasoning packet.  I filled the Crock Pot up with water to cover the meat and let it cook on low for 9 hours.

My wonderful husband took the meat and potatoes out after 9 hours and added the cabbage.  We let the cabbage cook on high for an hour in all those wonderful juices!

Yum - delicous, well worth the wait today!  We enjoyed our St. Patrick's Day feast!  Hope you had a wonderful feast also!

We had an amazing 62 degree sunshine filled day here.  The boys played outside for about three hours this morning.  Dad got to clean out the garage and wash the van.  I took the boys out after dinner for about another 2 hours.  I think we are going to have a rough time getting in the house once summer begins!

Hope you enjoyed your St. Patty's Day!

Kids Eat Free At T.G.I. Friday's on Wednesdays!

Today was a wonderful day!  I got to go to lunch with my boys (hubby & kids)!  We decided to go to T.G.I. Friday's since I had recently purchased a Groupon deal for them.  My husband and I both got the Endless Lunch.  It was delicious especially the Broccoli Cheddar soup!  The soup of the day was Chicken Tortilla which my husband enjoyed.  Well the best surprise of the whole meal was that kids eat FREE on Wednesdays at T.G.I. Fridays!  So both of my kids' meals ($3.99 each) were free including drinks!  What an amazing deal!  This may be our new Wednesday lunch destination when we do this again.  I recommend calling ahead at your local restaurant just to make sure they partipate!

Later that evening, the sun came out and the boys got to go play outside.  They enjoyed riding their  scooters, playing with chalk (oh what a mess a 2 year old can make), using hula hoops, and shooting some hoops.  We were able to grill out chicken and then take a family walk after dinner with our two dogs. 

Come on summer, I am ready for you now!
