Amazing! pretty much how I feel! Why, you ask? Well...our house had become pitifully empty of anything to eat, and we needed lots of toiletries too, so I went grocery shopping last night. It had been far too long since I had made a good couponing run, and it felt awesome last night when I got home. Jake said, "So how much did you save this time?" I wasn't quite sure, so we went searching through all of the bags to find the receipts. Here it goes:

Aside from the couponing, we had such a nice, relaxing weekend. We had a low-key night in on Friday, Jake played some softball and we stayed in at night on Saturday, and yesterday after church we went to Jeremy & April's to watch some movies. My grocery trip was last night. We have also gotten to watch lots of Grey's Anatomy this weekend. We love this show, plus it has a special place in our hearts since it is the reason that we started hanging out 5 years ago :) Time flies...
