I am so glad you stopped by. This blog is all about getting things for free. Yes there is such a thing as FREE, and I will show you how to get these items. As we know not EVERYTHING in life is free so for those things I will show you how and where to find deals. I live for finding deals and get such a high when I find a good one. Not only do I love finding deals but I love being a wife and mother. This blog will not only be about the deals that I find but about the daily joys and struggles as a parent.

Spring is right around the corner!

Punxsutawney Phil did not see his shadow today which means spring is right around the corner! I actually had the chance to go to Gobbler's Knob in 2002.  It was a big deal that year because it was 02-02-02.  One of my college roommates was from Punxsutawney Pa so a couple of us went up to see what the big deal was all aboutLet me just tell you I was in for a big surprise.  Growing up in Pa you hear about this big party but you have no idea what it really is like unless you are there.  There are thousands of people from all over the world packed in the grassy area around a stage that is playing really loud music all night.  If you want a good spot you have to get there early as we did to be close to the stage.  My roommate's uncle knew the head guys there so we actually were called up onto the stage to dance which is a big dealIf you know me at all you know I can't dance so luckily for me almost half the crowd was drunk so I didn't make a total fool of myself!  Today the girls and I will be doing a few Groundhog Day activities to celebrate the day. Here is a link to a craft that we will be making today. http://www.dltk-kids.com/animals/mgroundhog.html  My hope is that Phil is right and spring is right around the corner but the way it looks outside I am not very hopeful.


  1. We were there in 02-02-02 too! I got a group of friends together and we went up and stayed at this church for $5. The played "Groundhogs Day" all night long (well, from 11pm-4am). We were up on the knob by, like, 4am! I remember some people in really bright colored shirts up on stage...I wonder if it was you?!

  2. I have no idea what I was wearing way back then :) But we were up on the stage the same time that the girl from Survivor was up there. Can't remember her name either.
