Triple Coupons!

So today was the first day of Harris Teeter Triple Coupons! I am new to this whole couponing thing, but it is great! This is round one. I could only get nonparishable foods since I went on my lunch break from work and so I didn't have that much time to try and find EVERYTHING that I wanted. I got everything you see here for only $3.66! Oh yeah! I know some of you professional couponers probably could have even done better than that! But I am pretty happy with my finds!

15 Weeks Today!

So I am 15 weeks pregnant today! Wahoo! The second trimester is so much better than the first. Not that I ever really had "morning sickness" but I always felt really weak and tired. And I felt like if I didn't eat every few hours I felt even worse. But now I barely even feel pregnant! It's great. I don't really have any side effects at all except headaches every now and then and usually a stuffy nose which apparently is pretty common. So here is a picture for any of you all that don't see me very often!

Also Justin and I just finished building our nursery furniture last night. I know its a little soon, and we don't plan on doing anything else to the room until we know the sex, but I thought I would post some pics of the furniture that we got! It was a gift from both my parents and Justin's parents. Yay! We love it!

So I guess my Employer is at it again. Due to the economy we had 6 more layoffs at work today. One of them being my boss. That leaves JUST me left to manage and run my whole department. Plus, the real kicker...they laid off our purchasing/estimating guy today as well, and they want to train me to take on some of his take off estimating as well! This economy is just awesome!

I probably shouldn't have done this, b/c now I have just created an awkward working situation, but I felt so bad for my boss getting laid off, that I told one of the Owner's that I was pregnant, and was most likely not coming back once I had the baby and perhaps they would want to keep my boss instead of me. But no. They said they would just deal with that situation when it arrived, but that he was still going. I really think I am about to go insane there. I would really have rather been laid off than have to deal with all of this stress and headache! ahh!
