Busy Friday

hello everyone!
Today was just a busy day!   I had to do several errands and I did a little cooking.
I made this Dream Bars recipe 2 weeks ago to take to an event at my husbands job.  They were delicious and simple to stir up so I made another batch this afternoon to have for desserts this weekend.  I made the recipe exactly as posted except I used pecans instead of almonds. 
They seem like a fancier cookie but are really very easy. 
One of my appointments this morning was for a dental cleaning- I had a good checkup and I always like the goody bag of samples.  The tiny tubes of toothpaste and mini floss are perfect to put in my travel makeup bag. 
I also got a flu shot- I know these are controversial but we choose to get them. I've been getting them for about 10 years but I didn't get one last winter and I ended up suffering through 7 colds.  So,  hopefully I will be healthier this winter. 

I said I wasn't going to CVS this week but they sent me 2 emails in the last 2 days.  One was a coupon for $5 off $15 and the other was $3 off $15 of beauty products.  I saw on Youtube about the Tresemme deal- it is on sale for $4 a bottle,  I had $2 manufacturer coupons for each one and a scanner coupon for $2.50 off $10 of Tresemme.  
I needed some hair color as the gray hairs on the top of my head are way more noticeable than I prefer so I got this Clairol that was on sale for $6 each and I had $3 coupons for each one.  
after all the coupons were subtracted,  I paid $2.91 for 2 hair colors and 3 large shampoo-conditioners.   That was too good a deal to pass up. 

All of these products count toward the CVS beauty club program.  For every $50 in beauty products purchased,  you earn a $5 Extra Care Bucks.  

My CVS tips are to be sure to use a CVS loyalty card, link it to your email and pay attention to emails from them (I got $8 from this week) and to always scan your card at the red scanner in CVS for more store coupons.  Also,  go online and register your card to the Beauty Club at CVS.com.
I know it sounds complicated but once you get used to it, it is easier and very much worth the effort

 I picked up my grandson after morning nursery school.  After he had lunch and a good nap,  we facetimed with my parents.  Facetime is so nice and almost as good as a real face to face visit. 

I also got a manicure with a very festive red polish.  

Hope you all have a nice weekend!
