A Birthday Party, a Big Girl Sleepover, a Mimi Who Rocks, and Too Much Candy…

Since I have chosen not to post highs and lows over the weekend, I am going to tell you all about a couple of highs that occurred on Saturday and Sunday. Saturday was a BIG day for my 6-year-old daughter, Piper. She had her first “Big Girl” sleepover with a friend from school on Saturday night. She was over the moon excited… and to see her eyes light up and the huge smile on her face brought an even bigger smile to my face. At the same time, though, it was bittersweet as my little girl is growing up and well, I kinda wish she could stay at the same age for just a few more years.

And speaking of growing up, my son, Ayden, celebrated his 8th birthday early (his real birthday is on April 12th). We had a party for him at a place where kiddos can get out their energy by running wild and having Nerf wars! 🙂 He had a blast!

My mom – which the kiddos call mimi – also had a ton of fun. My kiddos are so blessed to have an unbelievable grandmother and I am also very blessed to have an amazing mom who is always filled with so much positive energy and lots of great wisdom. When something exciting happens in my life, she is the first person I call as I know she will be just as excited as I am. Moms rock! 😀

And my low for the day, eating way too much Easter candy and doughnut holes! Ya, eating healthy went out the door today. Oh and another low, not getting this body of mine movin’. I always feel so much better when I make it a point to exercise first thing in the morning. Plus, when I exercise I always tend to eat healthier during the day.

Every Monday-Thursday, I share my high(s) and low(s) for the day and I encourage you to do the same in the comment section below. My high(s) will simply be the best or most exciting thing that happened to me today and my low(s) will be something not so great that took place.

  • HIP List
  • Print

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 move 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, first head on over here and register and log into your account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back to later at a later time, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account. To remove a post from your HIP List, just click on the HIP List icon and it will be removed.

When logged into your account, you will see the HIP List icon at the bottom of every post if you are viewing in classic view.

If you prefer to view in river view, you will see the HIP List icon located on every post above the post title and to the right.

If you're wanting to print a certain deal, blog post, 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. This will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include when printing from your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you! If there are deals (or portions of deals) that you are not interested in printing, just click on the red x button to remove them. To restore a section, click on the green arrow icon in the upper right hand corner.
