Exactly a week later my baby girl is finally feeling better and on the mend. She started with fever last Sunday which continued into Monday. Coughing, runny nose, crankiness, sneezing, low-energy all kicked in Monday evening and didn't leave out until Friday evening. Thursday MK even began to run fever again. And in the midst of her illness, Travis caught whatever she had. Thankfully however, everyone is well on their way to being one hundred percent. I'm so thankful!


I don't pretend to be a bargain shopper. I don't pretend to be amazing at using coupons. I do good just to make the grocery list. I took a coupon class last year this time and have really done nothing with the information I gained. I only use coupons when my grandmother cuts them out for me or they come in the mail ready to use. 

With all this said, I have been rather interested in Groupon. My brother first introduced me to Groupon. For weeks, even months, I just looked and watched from a distance. I then decided that maybe I should sign up for it. It couldn't hurt. I saw a few good deals come through, but nothing that really made me stop and say, "I have got to have this." Until, a few weeks ago when a Groupon came out for a canvas photo. I have been wanting a canvas photo for forever, but haven't wanted to fork out the big buckaroos. The Groupon was $45 and that $45 entitled me to a 16x20 canvas from Canvas on Demand. The $45 also covered the shipping and handling. I went to Canvas on Demand just to see what my savings would actually be. The actual price of the canvas I was going to be ordering was $112 and with shipping and handling I think the total was going to be $126 or something like that. My groupon or coupon or whatever it's called would definitely be a savings. I quickly purchased the Groupon online and ordered my print within about three or four days. My final product arrived just last week and I was so pleased with it. SO. VERY. PLEASED. It is amazing.

I can't wait to hang it. I have the perfect spot. And I keep patiently waiting for another deal like that. 

**Just a few days after I purchased the Groupon, I found another deal through Canvas People. You could order an 8x10 for FREE and only pay shipping and handling. I got this adorable 8x10 of Morgan Kate and only paid $14.95. Wowzers!
