Ironing, Me? Did I Hit My Head?

As you know, I don't like ironing, but the last set of napkins I bought at Target (50% off) were so wrinkled after I washed them and since I needed them for J-Pony's 10th birthday party on Monday night...

I had no choice but to whip out the trusty iron and starch spray, and the iron horse. No, no, no... No space to whip that clunky thing out so the dinner table had to do. Much better that way anyway...

And so, this pile of 8 tangled, wrinkled mess slowly was pressed into...

... this and yes, ladies and gentlemen, I went further and ironed each one into...
... Folded masterpieces; ready to party! Yep, I'm goooood.... LOL

Oh, the croissant french toasts that I made a few days ago was a big hit, so I sought out another batch and look what I found- normally $3.49 for 6...

But since I bought it on the "Sell By" date, it was already tagged down to... $2.09! A discount of $1.40. Woohoo! Each croissant was only 35 cents each. Made them today into french toasts again and Mr. Man complained that there weren't enough! ;-)

Coming up with inexpensive things to do with the kiddos, is a challenge in itself, but feeding them for me is certainly not. Yay! Albertson's to the rescue this time- select GM cereals were on sale for 5 for $8.88 with a FREE pound of strawberries! I can't wait to show them how to make their own Chex Mix!

I also started the lumpia filling and will be getting them finished soon for the birthday. I can't wait to get it done as tomorrow and Friday are full!

Good job Chandy. I love the ironing job. I know that my mother use to make us iron everything. Me, I toss it in the wrinkle spruce in the dryer. I iron a few things too, but not like they use too.

Everything looks nice and I can't wait to hear about your lumpia filling. I have never heard of such a thing. Sounds delish.

Good for you for finding the steals! That's awesome. As as for ironing.. Sadly I don't even have an iron right now! I've just been throwing things in the dryer for a little while to iron out the wrinkles, haha! Oh I'm a sad sight! I better get better at this domestic stuff before I have babies!!

Hello A and FutureMama! It took a while to find the iron. That's how much we don't use it. LOL
