Coupons and Coffee
Mornin! Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. We had a super busy weekend, but what's new!? Friday we decided to have a yard sale first thing Saturday morning. I spent all afternoon pulling stuff out which really wasn't that hard because I had a corner of my dining room dedicated to "yard sale stuff". We didn't do too bad for not advertising other than here and Facebook and 3 signs on the roads. My oldest set up a lemonade stand and raised $9.30 for Childhood Cancer. She has such a sweet, giving heart.
My hubby, Eric has lost over 100 lbs in the last year and is currently in training to compete in his first triathlon. A very expensive endeavor I might add that our budget is just not prepared to support! However, I'm in support of anything he wants to do to better his health. The Lord has blessed us with so many good, giving friends and family! A friend from church came over a few weeks ago and dropped off a bike for Eric to start riding, then another friend called him up and said he wanted to do the triathlon with him and had access to kayaks(which will be a portion of the triathlon) for $8 a day! That is awesome considering the one he's wanting to buy is about $500! Finally, yesterday after church my uncle stops by with a surprise! A barely used, all the bells and whistles Trek racing bike for Eric to use as long as he needs it. SWEET! This is turning out to be not so expensive after all! Thanks everyone!
