Who am I? and What is this blog about?

Hello. I am a wife and mother that lives in the Midwest, very close to St. Louis, MO.  My son is 14 and entering high school. I am sure we will be busy due to him in football and other sports.  My family are big fans of the St. Louis Cardinals so we like to go to a game when we can.  I enjoy cooking and baking from scratch.  I try to find things to help my family save money.  I enjoy writing when I have the time.  I also blog on Frugal and Coupon Crazy which is about frugal living, and coupon/deals.  Come visit me there too.

What will I be posting on this blog and on my Facebook page?  I may be writing about what is on my mind as a mother. I will be posting events in the St. Louis and Metro East area.  I am hoping to do some reviews on local places soon as well. So if you are anywhere near the St. Louis area this blog is for you.

Saturday Thoughts

Today is Saturday.  Not much going on here. I am trying to look for things that I can sell to make some extra money.  I am now able to drive.  It feels great.  Tonight we are getting a new washing machine (not new actually used).  Being able to wash clothes is a necessity.  There are so many things on my list that need to be fixed in this house. Next will be the toilet which we bought a few months ago and the kitchen faucet.  Like people say, when you own a house there is always something that needs to fixed or improved

Getting to work on this blog.

I really haven't worked on this blog lately at all or even for a while.  I have two other blogs I also write on.  I do post different things on the Facebook page for this blog though.

I really need to start writing more on this blog.  I should post events that are going on in our area.

I live in Wood River, Il. I will be posting things that are within a decent area from me.  Everyone likes to drive a little bit if they have to.
