80 and 31

Over the long holiday weekend, we celebrated 2 birthdays at the lake.  My grandmother turned 80!  Wow!  Go Sugar!  And still going strong.  We had everyone together - even my brother and sister-in-law from Houston. 

Robert celebrated his day by doing none other than his favorite thing to do at the lake - WAKEBOARDING. 

My man is pretty good.  Check out some of these jumps he LANDED!

Yep.  Pretty hot, eh?  Now that he's "in his thirties" I'm sure he'll be wanting to keep himself young by learning some new tricks.  ;-)

Did you know you can just buy a helium tank and 50 balloons for $35??  That's a steal if you have ever gone to party city or walmart for them.  And I'm proud to say that NO ONE got crazy and inhaled any of it! ;-)

My sister had a great idea to print out these little card and write a few favorite memories of Sugar, hand them up, and then let her guess who wrote it.  SO cute and lots of fun memories we've had with her!

My uncle cooked some YUMMY burgers and we ate and celebrated her. 

Happy Birthday Sugar!!


Robert is NOT a gifts person.  So I took my mom's advice and got him something I wanted too.  ;-)  Great advice, huh.  So I purchased a Keurig for him!  I think we've both been wanting one and now seemed like the perfect time.

NOW, I just have to figure out how to get the best deal on K-cups.  I had my coffee couponing and sales down pat and never paid more than $2/bag for coffee.  So now I'm going to have to figure out how to get some good deals on K-cups!

ANYONE KNOW?  I've heard of using a Bed Bath and Beyond 20% off coupon, but just wondered if there was anyone out there that knows of a good deal. 

I have lots more pictures of the long weekend that I'll share this week.  We had so much fun we flat wore ourselves out!  I've stayed home all day today just hanging out and doing laundry!  Fun times!  ;-)


  1. Don't buy K Cups. Get the filter that goes into the Keuring and use your regular coffee. I know they have then at bed bath and beyond.

  2. Also, I haven't done this yet, but I think you can save on the tank and balloons at Michael's with a 20% off entire purch. price coupon or a 40% off reg. price coupon to get tank and balloons. I think a couple of friends have done this for birthdays.

  3. We don't have a Keurig, but we used to have a Tassimo and they sold those cartridges at Bed Bath too. Bed Bath with coupons was an okay deal, but not great. I would check on Amazon and at Costco (or the like). When I saw Tassimo cartridges at Target I would buy them and they were less than they cost at Bed Bath after the coupon.


If you don't have anything nice to say, then, please don't say anything at all! THANKS!
