He has Finally Arrived!

Our 5th and final bundle of Joy decided he was ready to join us.. well he wasnt but the dr said otherwise lol

Joshua Lee Hawkins was born 7/22/15 weighing 9 pounds 9 ounces 1 day after his due date which was also the 2 year anniversary of my brothers passing, bittersweet to say the least. Finally a month later Im starting to feel like a normal human being again! School has started and we have somewhat of a routine, Breastfeeding has been rough but here we are still going strong!

Ive been out of the loop for a good year, 2013 was a bad year 2014 was off to a rocky start but ended on a good note, we are expecting baby #5 July 21 2015! A wonderful surprise for us he is due on the 2 year anniversary of my brothers death, we will name him after my brother we are very excited for him as now I will have 2 sons and 3 girls and of course my nephew Jakey who I love as my own.

With all the excitment Ive figured it is indeed time to get back to my blogging, couponing, and all things frugal!

Getting Back into the swing of things

Well where to start, July 2013 life changed forever for us, I gave up the couponing and blogging deals everything! Losing my brother took alot out of me, we all still have days but it is getting better as time goes on. Sooooo with that being said Im getting back into the swing with the couponing, and blog reporting! I have done a few small hauls and boy I cant believe all the savings we have been missing out on!! not to mention the PENNY Items at dollar general my own treasure hunt its an awesome feeling!!

The Honest Company

So I admit Im a sucker for these types of try before you buy deals, I have debated for months and finally took advantage of this deal from The Honest Company, Free Trial  if your interested. Now there were 2 different trial packages one for baby ( diapers and wipes ) and the other household items I bought both bundles for a total of $5.98 here is what I got 10 diapers,  trial pack of wipes and trial sizes of lotion, balm, laundry soap, handsoap and shampoo/ body wash

Honestly for me a diaper is a diaper these are no better than any other diaper on the market except for the fact they "claim" to be more eco friendly, I cloth diapered my youngest daughter almost exclusively until about 5 months  old she kept getting horrible rashes so we went back to disposable these are the next best thing to cloth diapers. Again with the wipes nothing special they do the job.

The handwash is lemongrass scent I do not like it at all it honestly stinks and it doesnt get very sudsy, laundry detergent I like because it is free and clear no perfumes or dyes, I have one daughter who is very sensitive she has eczema so for me this was a plus, the other products I have not used yet, now as far as this deal goes you have 7 days to cancel after receiving the trial items, if you dont you will be charged now to me I dont feel the price of these bundles is worth it, but I believe I will be buying the laundry soap and just the laundry soap

With your free Discovery Kit you will become enrolled as a MEMBER of The Honest Company. You have 7 days following receipt of your Discovery Kit to cancel your membership at any time, for any reason. We will remind you several times about your membership options. If you choose to not cancel your membership, you will be charged $79.95 plus $5.95 shipping and handling for your monthly supply of Diapers, or $35.95 plus $5.95 shipping and handling for your monthly supply of Family Essentials.
We guarantee your complete satisfaction!
