Addy Walker, American Girl Doll Giveaway Ends 3/31

American Girl lovers know that behind every American Girl doll is a wonderful story! With March being reading month, I’m happy to help One Michigan Mom find Addy Walker a new home! I am also excited to share this one because I know how much American Girl dolls have meant to many of my friends’ children. They are classics that are always loved and can be passed down through the generations.

Addy Walker represents the America of 1864, and a family’s escape from slavery to freedom.

I’ve escaped to a new life. My whole world is  opening wide, but I’m learning that freedom  doesn’t make everything easy. Through it all, family  is what keeps me going. Just the thought of us all  together gives me strength.

This giveaway is co-sponsored by This Mama’s Life, Beyond Attachment Parenting, and Stingy Thrifty Broke. This giveaway was originally announced on Link Me to Deals!

American Girl Giveaway for March 2016!

Up for giveaway is an original 1993 Pleasant Company Addy Doll, with items shown and her book #1.

American Girl Giveaway

Addy, American Girl giveaway for March 2016

Addy was a collector’s doll and has passed through some hands via collector’s sales, so she shows some age, but she is still wonderful, even with the beginning of silver eye (which is a free fix from American Girl).

When it comes to American Girl – know that these stories really can help us all learn to celebrate America, and the struggles seen through the ages.

When reading American Girl books, a realistic depiction of life is opened up to the reader. In Addy’s book, you’ll discover what it was like to grow up during America’s Civil War, your daughter can play with Addy and interact with her and become her best friend. Or, she can continue to be a display doll.

Enter to Win!

National Margarita Day: Best margaritas in Rochester, NY

February 22nd is one of my favorite holidays. How can you go wrong with National Margarita Day? I have fond memories of bonding with friends over margaritas in Rochester, NY. When I was working nights as a hostess at Outback, my friend and I would often head across the street after we closed, to drink margaritas and play games with the boys. When friends come to town, we often seek out one of the fantastic local Mexican restaurants for fantastic food and, of course, margaritas. My birthday usually includes consumption of this titillating tequila beverage, as well, the bigger the better. Here is a picture of me at El Jimador in Farmington, New York a few years ago. They have the biggest margaritas I have ever seen! Continue reading “National Margarita Day: Best margaritas in Rochester, NY”

I love mimosas

Free Mimosa with each breakfast

Oh, those words “Complimentary Mimosa” just make my heart sing. Mimosas are my favorite part about Sundays. My neighborhood bar and grill started up a Sunday brunch early in 2016, and one of the gimmicks is one free mimosa with every breakfast, starting at noon. Continue reading “I love mimosas”

Saving Money $5 at a Time

Saving Money

We are always trying to find new ways of saving money. We cut corners, use coupons, and try all kinds of new techniques to pinch a few pennies. I am not sure from where this idea originally came, but it is a technique that I learned about from some friends who work at my local bar and grill. So far, it is working for me.

Saving money $5 at a time.

Because my friends work as bartenders and servers, they have a constant influx of cash on hand. They sometimes have to stock a purse for making change on the floor and often take home a lot of tips in cash. Constantly having cash coming in definitely makes this technique for saving money an easier feat for them, but I think anyone can do it.

When they are counting out their cash at the end of the night, after turning in their envelopes, they make sure that they set aside all of the $5 bills. The $5 bills then go into a separate envelope at home and are forgotten about. That is how the stash begins to grow. You don’t really notice if you set aside $5 here and there and it very quickly adds up. One of the keys is to not regularly count it, so that you can be truly surprised.

Pearl Jam beckons.

So what am I saving up for? I have been a devout Pearl Jam fan for the past 25 years, ever since the first time “Evenflow” graced my ears. I have traveled coast to coast to watch my boys play and have even been lucky enough to have met Eddie Vedder twice. My faithful friend and I make an effort to attend at least one show every tour. I think I have only missed one tour since I started going, back during the Yield tour. In fact, I try to make it to more than one.

We’ve been on pins and needles waiting for the 2016 Tour announcement. Both of us have changed jobs, so time off and extra money has been a bit of a concern. My friends had just told me about this money-saving technique, so I started using it as soon as the tour dates were announced. By the time the tickets for our chosen show went on sale, I already had saved up most of the cost of one ticket.

How am I doing this? Well, I do not work in a field that pays in cash. From time to time, I will take out cash before going out or to pay bills. I do occasionally babysit, which allows for cash. I am also likely to take cash from my friends and use my debit card to pay when we go out to dinner or for drinks. I then set aside the $5 bills that I get. Any time I am out and break a larger bill when purchasing food or whatnot, I again set aside the $5 when I get home.

So, that is the method that works best for me. How you get your cash and break it up is going to be completely personal. Don’t give it too much thought. Just do it and be pleasantly surprised when it adds up.

What are you going to save for?
