To be present and enjoy every second of every single day that I get to spend with my wild and crazy kiddos!

That a birthday party doesn’t need to be expensive, elaborate, or fancy for it to be special.

To laugh at myself on a regular basis. Yep, even the time when I wore sunglasses while chopping onions… hoping that it would stop those tears from flowing. Ya, that didn’t work too well.

That trying new things is so important… even if I don’t succeed.

That the Tim Allen in my hubby makes me love him that much more.

That it’s OK to give yourself some slack. Like when it’s that time of the month and I want to eat an entire carton of ice cream. Hey, it’s only a pint.

Just how important random acts of kindness are… not just for the recipient, but also for yourself.

That I’m just me and that’s OK.

And finally, to keep it real. And I’m doing that today by sharing this wonderful picture with all of you. Just a nice shot of me with one side of my face numb due to a trip to the dentist. 😉

What about you? What have you learned about yourself and your life in 2012? I’d love to hear! And also feel free to share your 2013 New Year’s resolutions.

What is the HIP List?

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply add the post to your HIP List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the HIP List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, you first must head on over here and register and log into your account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back later to, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account.


When logged into your account, you will then see your HIP List on every page.


If you're wanting to print a certain deal, article, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. That will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include in your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you!


If there are deals that you are not interested in keeping on your list, just click on the minus button to remove it.


Now, just print your customized HIP list whenever you're ready to go shopping and snag some "Hip" deals!
