About A Mom New Blog Design

My About A Mom blog has an awesome new blog design! It was designed by Erin from Samantha's Day Graphic Design!

Erin did an awesome job and was so great to work with! Please stop by her website and check out her work.

I will be shutting this blog down soon. Right now I am focusing my time on About A Mom. If you haven't already followed me over there, please do!

Please Check Out New Blog

I have finally posted to our new blog About A Mom. It's not perfect but I got tired of waiting and published the first few posts this morning. A new custom blog design is coming and I am sure there will be some tweaking along the way.

It would be great to see my Couponing Gibson Gal readers following on the new blog! I will be posting daily and look forward to sharing with you.

Check us out here!

My Velveeta Cheesy Skillets House Party

Last week I was lucky enough to throw a House Party for the new Velveeta Cheesy Skillets! House Party and Velveeta provided the food and party favors. They made it so easy for me to host a great party!

I was very impressed with the Velveeta Cheesy Skillet Meals. The meals come with the noodles, cheesy sauce packet & seasonings. All you have to do is add the meat. They could not be any easier to prepare. We tried several varieties at my party and they were all delicious. I know that the kids most enjoyed the Nacho Supreme. My mom and I preferred the Zesty BBQ Chicken.

I posted pictures from our party that you can check out on My Cheesy Skillets House Party Page!

Is True Blood Worth Paying $16 A Month for HBO?

I find myself in a dilemma this week. Last season I let myself get hooked on the show True Blood, while I had a free 3 month trial of HBO through my satellite provider. I cancelled HBO after the trial offer to avoid billing $16 per month. We live on a pretty tight budget and do not afford many luxuries like paid movie channels.

This past weekend our satellite provider gave us HBO free for the weekend, which just happened to be the same weekend of the True Blood season premiere. They hooked me again! I have between now and Sunday to decide if I am willing to pay $16 per month just to watch True Blood.

Do I bite the bullet and allow myself this one indulgence?

None of my friends or local family has HBO, so I cannot go somewhere else to watch it.

Is there a way to watch True Blood online that I do not know about?

I have a few days left to ponder this decision and would appreciate your input!

I Am Sorry For Neglecting This Blog

This morning I realized it's been a couple of weeks since I have posted on this blog. I have had a lot going on and regret not sharing more of it with you. As I mentioned in an earlier post, I have been working on a new blog About A Mom, where I will be much more dedicated to posting daily. The site is still under construction but I see the first post on the horizon.

I have been struggling with doing my own custom design. So, I was so excited to find out last week that I won a blog design from Samantha's Day Blogger Design through a giveaway sponsored by Kelly's Lucky You and Simply Stacie. Samantha does original art work for her blog design which is exactly what I am looking for. I can't wait to see what she cooks up for me.

With this new custom blog design, I am sure to posting away very soon!
