The concept for this blog, believe it or not, came out of Facebook. Every day, like millions of other people, I post my "status" on my FB profile. Most of the time, my status updates are funny commentaries on things my children have said, or things my husband did or my take on our crazy little life together. Sometimes they revolve around good "deals" I've found at stores or online. Time after time, though, I received comments from friends about how much they enjoyed my updates - how my sentence or two each day would make them laugh or feel like they weren't alone in this crazy world of parenting. After much encouragement to do something with my writing besides entertain everyone on Facebook, this blog was conceived.
I know I've talked about Adealio before, but at the time, I said it was just for Austin. It turns out that they now are in many cities all across the US.
It works like Groupon - you get a "Deal of the Day" mailed to your inbox and you have until the end of the day to buy it.
I've gotten some great ones - half price haircuts, half price meals, half price massages.
The best deal I got with them? Two weeks ago they were selling $50 worth of Adelio "bucks" for $25. I bought that deal.
Then, the next week, they had Regal Movie tickets (never expire, no restrictions) for $5 each. I bought 10 of them for $50 - but, since I had only spend $25 for that $50, I ended up just spending $2.50 per ticket!

I'm a 39 year old mom of 3 kids. One girl (age 10) and two boys (ages 6 and 4). I’ve been married (to the same man, no less) for over 16 years. I'm both a stay-at-home mom and a working mom. (In this world of modern technology, that's a possibility - and, as you'll learn from my blog, I work many "odd" jobs). I struggle each and every day to be the best mom and wife and woman I can be. Sometimes I succeed. Lots of times, though, I just need to take a nap.
