Fedora Hats….. $4.99 birthday presents


Awesome buy, awesome hat.   We even bought one for Sage’s friend whom she had an innovation to a b-day party.  We bought her a cool Panda picture t-shirt 80’s color green n grey stripe shirt $4.99  at “Fallas” one of my go to stores mentioned in my previous blog.

I call ahead and ask the mom what there kid is into.  Then I can purchase the appropriate gift.   Then I ask if I can bring my other daughters and myself to the party.  Once I have the details I look for ways to budget the trip, I do it.

Cost $5.99 – $10.99, depending on the gift.

This is always a win win, free food, free drink and free invitations to other b-day parties.  Hopefully they will show up to my girls b-day parties, the more guest’s………. the more the presents !!


Hide N Seek, still a Classic

The picture is of my youngest when I found her playing “Hide n Seek”

This classic game never gets old, only we do.  The trick is as you get older, finding a good spot that is big enough   Sometimes I find a real good spot and get tired of being found.  Unlike when I was young and wanted to be found.

Cost = Free     Laughter & Fun, pricelesssage cute

Nursery Rhymes… morning fun


nurse1nurse2 nurse3 nurse4Nursery Rhymes...  morning fun


Sleep in later than your usual weekday if u can and take the kids to a
Local Nursery, Flower Garden, scenic park type. You’ll find
friendly people, most are free access, peaceful surroundings.

I took them to this real friendly Nursery flower garden it was free.

I stopped at my favorite inexpensive local bakery for some Muffins, pastry, each picks out there own. u could go to a convenience store, grocery store, wally world any place that has a good price. i paid $4.60 for 4 muffins and 2 hot chocolates i turned into 4. i added hot water there and made 4 cups. less sugar and more yield.

when we got to the nursery flower garden we took our time and focused on cool and neat and pretty details. “Oh look over here!” “check this out” “aaahhhhh so pretty”
was the conversation starter. We killed about 2 hours taking our time from start to finish and we were ready to go home for a rest, snack, own time wants.
