Caring For Papa!

dad 1

Hello, everyone! Those of you who watch my YouTube videos know that a few weeks ago I talked about how my dad would be having surgery this month. He had an operation to repair a hernia today and is now home. He is doing well, insisting that Max and Lucy snuggle in bed with him while he rests!

I likely won’t be posting any updates for a few days while I play nurse, but I’ll hopefully be back to sharing the deals soon. Thank you for your understanding! :-)

Happy Birthday, Lucy!!!

My younger pug, Lucy, turned nine years old today! I can’t believe my sweet little girl is already nine; it seems like we just brought her home yesterday! Lucy got a big bag full of toys and treats, which of course she shared with Max. Truth be told, Lucy isn’t too big on holidays or special occasions; she doesn’t like anything that is out of her normal routine. Max, however, LOVES opening gifts, so he was actually more happy with the presents than Lucy was!

I still remember the day we first met Lucy. I had been thinking of getting a second dog so that Max would have a playmate. As I sat in the living room one afternoon, something told me to check the newspaper. I picked it up and turned to the classified’s section, where there was a small ad for a female pug. I called the number…and within an hour my dad, Max and I were at the owner’s home meeting Lucy, her sister, two brothers, and mom!

Lucy and her sister were both available; we took them outside, where Lucy immediately stole our hearts. She was scratching at our feet, wanting us to pick her up. Her sister paid us no attention whatsoever, but Lucy was all over us. We then brought Max out to meet her, and for Lucy it was love at first sight. My dad said I could get another dog if Lucy was the one we choose…and a week later, when she was barely 6-weeks-old, we brought her home!

Lucy was so scared on the car ride to our house; it was the first time she’d ever been away from her mom or litter mates, least of all ridden in a car. She shook and whined all the way home…until we got into the house where Max was waiting. All it took was seeing Max and she immediately calmed down! Max, however, wasn’t so sure about her (and quite frankly, he still isn’t, ha!).

When we first got Lucy, she only weighed four pounds. However, she was (and is) very bold and outgoing, not afraid to demand her way. A few nights after we had gotten her, she managed to open up her crate, slip through two baby gates, climb the stairs, and push the door to my bedroom open. I was awakened in the middle of the night by little Lucy barking up at me while I was in bed!

I am so grateful that I opened up the newspaper nine years ago; Lucy makes our family complete! :-)

target-coupons

Attention, Target shoppers! There are a lot of great offers going on right now, including:

Over 40 new printable Target store coupons! Remember that Target allows you to “stack” coupons, meaning you can use one Target store coupon and one manufacturer coupon on an item. In addition, you can use a Target Cartwheel offer on top of the coupons for a potential triple stack!

Several new high-value Target Cartwheel offers ranging from 25% all the way up to 50% off! Brands include Epson, Food Should Taste Good, HP Lalaloopsy, Pop-Tarts, Special K, St. Ives, V8, and more!

Online toy clearance of up to 50% off with prices starting at only $4! Brands include Barbie, Disney Princess, Fisher-Price, LEGO, and many more!

New lower online FREE shipping minimum! Target has just lowered the FREE shipping threshold on their website from $50 down to only $25! While Target RedCard holders get free shipping on all orders, this new lower minimum is nice for those of us who don’t have the Target card.

In 6-8 weeks, you will get a cash check of $7.98 back from Staples for the paper, making it only 1-cent (not including sales tax)!

Giveaway: Box Full of Disney Princess Toys!

giveaway

It’s Sunday, which means it’s time for my weekly giveaway! This week you can enter to win the Disney Princess toys that I used to make this gift basket. I am also including some of the items I used in my Valentine’s Day gift basket tutorial.

I love doing the Dollar Tree gift baskets, but shipping out the baskets themselves as prizes is tricky due to their size. However, I don’t want the items to go to waste, so I figured some of you may like the chance to get them.

To enter, simply leave me a comment letting me know you’d like to be entered into this giveaway. This giveaway will be open for the next four days, at which time I will close the comments and randomly draw one name from all of the entries. U.S. address only; must be 18 years of age or older to enter.

Good luck! :-)
