I love coupons

because of coupons my weekend was full of movies and food.
not really good movies, and not the best food, but good enough for free, and really cheap!

over a year ago, I had to wait about 20 minutes at the dentist, because the courier hadn't arrived yet with my night guard.
no biggie.
but they gave me 2 free movie passes.
so I used one a long time ago, but had the last one in my wallet for a long time.
it expired on February 1, 2009.
so on Friday I did something I have never done before.
I went to a movie all by myself.
I remember laughing at my dad because he used to do that when he was a young man.
now who is laughing?
not me.
anyways, I saw Bride Wars.

don't go.
especially if you have to pay money.
all the funny parts are on the commercials.
just so you know.

then, on Saturday, I drove a friend into the city for stake leadership-
that I didn't even have to go to.
apparently phone calls and emails went out.
but not to me.
funny, eh?
anyways, I went in, and the girl I drove in- her husband got a ton of coupons for a free cheeseburger, small fries, and small drinks at McDonalds.

now, Mc D's is not my favorite place, but I won't turn away free.

so, since I didn't have to go to leadership, my sister and I hit the fabric store, and got some sweet deals on some cute quilting fabric.

then we got some free food.

then my sister had a whole lot of coupons for the cheap theater that expired on Feb.1.

well, we can't let those go to waste,

so 3 of my kids, my parents and I headed off to see Beverly Hills Chihuahua.

it was cute and funny-

as cute and funny as talking dogs can be.

if you know what I mean.

then - I still had a bunch of those cheeseburger coupons -so back to Mc Donalds to use those up. good times.

you gotta love those coupons.

Fun times with the coupons.
I'll try to not cry over the fact that I wasn't invited along for the fun.

I loved Bride Wars too! You got what you went for-a cute, no brainer chick flick. I think your problem Kristi is that you went by yourself. Definitely have to take a girlfriend with you for that kinda show!
