Deal Alert

Those of you who know me, know I love coupons. So when I saw that I could get the Entertainment Book 2009 for $1.25, I ordered it right away since this is the best deal I've seen on it all year. Even if you only use a few coupons out of the huge thing it is worth it. Here's how:

1.) Click HERE to register with Cashbaq. Cashbaq (a cash back portal like Ebates) is offering a $5 bonus to all new registered members. Be sure to edit the “My Account” page and enter your address so you can get paid.

2.) Once you’ve signed up for a Cashbaq account in Step 1, select the Entertainment Book store from the “Shop by Store” drop down window. The current offer for the book is 35% off PLUS $10 cash back from Cashbaq.

3.) Click the “Use Coupon” link to be directed to the Entertainment Book website. Enter your zip code on the Entertainment website and order the corresponding book for your location (~$16.25).

4.) Receive the 2009 Entertainment Book plus $15 in Cashbaq!

Between this and eBates, you should NEVER buy anything online without getting some cash back.

One of our malls has a great collection of ride-on cars, trucks, trains and a space shuttle like this one that Charlotte just loves. She doesn't mind that I don't make them move ($1 for 30 seconds - are you kidding?), she just hops from one to the other and has a great time. I was hoping her car obsession would take the place of the shoe obsessions my friends have warned me about with their little girls. Nope - she is a shoe girl too now. On and off. On and off.

This weekend my parents came to visit us and my mom, Charlotte and I went to JCPenney for a photo shoot. Charlotte lost patience with the whole thing very quickly, but they did capture some good shots and we'll have to go back there to get a family picture because I was actually impressed with JCPenney's quality and prices. But I can't imagine doing this without a "handler", in this case my mom, which is probably why I've only been once before to get her picture taken. In that situation, I only ended up getting the two free 8x10s that came with my coupon, because Charlotte was screaming to get home and I had had it too. Thanks Mom! And thanks to Dad for staying home and fixing our toilet, refrigerator and rocking chair. It was a great Valentine's Day - we were stuffed with pizza, donuts, frozen custard and sugar cookies!

Full grown Char

This week Charlotte got her first official haircut! A few weeks ago I hacked off some of her baby mullet but that trim was having a rough time growing out. I didn't know how she would react to this situation but she behaved amazingly well and we both had a great time.
