Like From a Turkey

When I got the mail today there was box for Hubby....
Of course since it had his name on it I didn't open it 

When he got home he got all excited and said it was one of my Christmas presents!

Well Hubby has a problem keeping secrets from me....
So after dinner he told me he couldn't wait any longer and wanted to give me my present NOW
He got me a wishbone necklace!!!

If you knew my husband you'd know that before today he has given me a total of 2 pieces of jewelry
 I'm wearing them both on my left hand
He just isn't a big jewelry guy
So the fact that he got me this necklace is a HUGE deal!
He made me close my eyes and put it on me and as soon as I felt it on my neck I was squealing!
Once I looked at saw what it was he explained that he got the wishbone because:
  1. I'm his "wish come true"
  2. He cooks a lot and its a wishbone "like from a turkey"
I love that he added the "like from a turkey" part because just saying I'm his wish come true would be too sappy

  Then he added "Merry early Christmas and happy period"
Yup it's that lovely time on the month which means Bekah is in full bitch mode so I guess he felt like an early Christmas present would help smooth the waters and shut me up for a while (it totally worked)
And he is now in his man room watching a movie while I play on my computer in peace and quiet
(again great decision for hell week... just stay out of my way)

In other words
I have the best husband ever!

Couponing Sunday

Tyler actually went shopping yesterday because we had a family reunion to go to today
(which we ended up talking about couponing at)
He did really well too and we actually ended up giving away some of his haul!
(he got some stuff for free and it's not something we eat so why not give it away?)

This picture doesn't do the haul justice but it was really funny
But he got soup, juice, creamer, veggies, meat, noodle meals, peanut butter, milk, soda, pasta, cornbread mix, cheese... etc
Before savings it was almost $200
After savings/coupons it was $107

No we don't save 90% or anything crazy like on TV but 50% is pretty good in my book

Happy Sunday everyone!

Christmas Pictures

So today I subjected my husband and my poor dogs to having family portraits taken.
Hubby was less than thrilled and the dogs could've cared less.
This morning I spent more time getting Zoey ready then I spent on my self.
That little Shih-Tzu takes a lot of work....

So after everyone getting baths, Zoey and I being blow dried and styled, Hubby humoring me and sucking it up to take pictures, this was the final choice for our annual Foley Christmas card
Yes the dogs are not looking at the camera but what can you do?
I kept saying we should just look wherever the dogs are looking then we can make it an artsy photo
I also just noticed my belly pooch is looking hot in this picture...
But at least the dogs/Hubby look cute 

And on another note
This picture happened
And I totally would've used it on our Christmas cards but my Mother would've been horrified

Also today is December 1st which means No-Beer-November is OVER
(if you follow me on Instagram you'd know that)
I'll admit I slipped up last Saturday and it totally was on accident!
(If you follow me on twitter you'd now that)
We got to our favorite bar to meet some friends and a bucket had already been ordered
And without thinking I just grabbed a beer
I didnt even think twice until i was totally done with it...
So we're just acting like it didnt happen.
Tyler asked me what the date was and started dieing laughing.
I almost cried right there in the middle of the bar.

Ok enough of that rant.

Happy December Everyone!
I'm going to try and post everyday this month
(even if it's just a stupid picture)

Wish me luck!

Oh and on a final note I have to thank my cousin Katie for taking our pictures! 
She also took our Engagement pictures and is our photog for life if she likes it or not
