I have only been to Texas once, and I was so young that I really don't remember much about the trip. So, it's one place to which I've been wanting to return. We can knock two baseball stadiums off our list by going there, but there are so many other places to visit and things to see.

One city I really want to go to is San Antonio. Obviously, it would be really cool to see The Alamo but, if you use the awesome SAVE – San Antonio Vacation Experience website, you will find a ton of other really neat things to do. I used the site to put together a sample itinerary for whenever we do head that way.

1. Sea World San Antonio
2. Six Flags Fiesta Texas
3. Splashtown
4. The Alamo Sightseeing Tours or The Alamo Trolley
5. San Antonio Children's Museum
6. And, for shopping purposes (tee hee!), The Shops at La Cantera

There are some great deals and Limited Time Offers available on the SAVE website, like $2 or 20 percent off admission, etc. And, there are also some great discounted rates for hotels and resorts in the area. Vacations are expensive enough as it is, so it's nice to get some deals to lower the costs just a little bit. I wish every city had a site like this!

For updates on deals and limited time offers, and for ideas on planning your next trip to San Antonio, make sure you follow @SAVEinSA on Twitter! Now, I'm REALLY in the mood to plan a vacation!

DIY Headband Holder

I’ve been at a loss at what to do with Lucy’s headbands. I can pile them on her dresser (as I’ve been doing) or put them in a basket. That’s the extent of the options I’ve come up with.

Until now. My husband had a brilliant idea for a DIY headband holder, and it was probably the easiest project ever. Seriously. A couple coats of paint, some ribbons and you’re done. It’s that simple.

We got a letter holder from Hobby Lobby (on sale for $6 — the total cost for this project).

We sprayed on one coat of primer, and then sprayed on pink paint. I tied ribbons to the ends to make it look cuter. The ribbons and paint we already had on hand, so this was a super frugal project, and it turned out great!

I haven’t decided yet whether I’m going to hang this on the wall (possibly by her bow holder) or stand it up on her dresser. That’s one thing I really love about this project — it’s so versatile. Love it!

I always love Publix’s promotions because, not only does it mean good sales on products, but it also means the store typically will have coupons out to go along with the promotion.

The Running Out? Run In. promotion is no different. Through July 25, you can get savings on some of your favorite brands from General Mills and Proctor & Gamble, such as Cheerios, Totino’s, Charmin and Crest. And, make sure you check your store for their coupon books, which contain $13 in coupons! The coupons are valid through Aug. 4, and the coupon book also has a rebate form to get a $5 Publix gift card when you buy $30 in participating products. I LOVE these rebates! And, if you can’t find the booklet in your store? Don’t worry — you can print the rebate form out here!

We had so much fun this weekend visiting our families. Lucy spent Saturday playing with Harrison and Marshall, and today she got to play with Rivka. She had SO much fun!

OK, guys does anyone know what you would use a cowbell pedal for?? I am not into anything like that, and when I heard that name, I had no idea what to expect. I pictured a cowbell and a bracket, and even after looking it up, I still don’t get it! Maybe this is something I should ask the hubby about.

I am a typical girly girl, and I am not into ANYTHING that has to do with taking care of the house or any other similar kind of work. Whether we need a new faucet or hygienic levers, I leave everything up to Joe, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. I definitely don’t care to know about anything like that. I prefer to stay in the house.
