Five freebies Friday

Friday is here again. I really don't know where this past week has slipped away to! Monday we spent the day together as a family and were fortunate enough to spend part of the day doing nothing but spend time with each other. That was wonderful! Tuesday K had her big performance with choir. Remember the green paisley 60's dress I had to make? I finished it on Monday so she could wear it Tuesday. She seemed to really like it but boy does she look grown up in it. And from the audience you couldn't even tell it was paisley! Wednesday I was able to sit down and work on the church website that was just turned over to me. You can check it out at I think that the gentleman who created it did a great job on the design so I kept that the same and just did some updating. Then there was a wonderful Wednesday night prayer and praise session. I think my pastor has coined a new phrase for his mini lessons on Wednesday: pipe tobacco sermons. Wait! Let me explain!! They are short. They are sweet, and you can put them in you pipe and smoke 'em! I thought that was too funny! Thursday was catch up laundry day since I haven't done a load all week! Today is J's 5th grade graduation ceremony. On top of that, there is only 1 week of school left for the kids. I have no idea how I am going to keep them entertained this summer!

While it has been a busy week, it has definately felt like a blessed one. I loved being able to fellowship with other church members, it was great to get the church site updated and relevant to what we are doing now, and it was wonderful watching K on stage having a great time singing and dancing. Hope your week has been blessed as well!

On to the freebies:

If you get to this one early enough you get a free Burt's Bees lip balm. It is supposed to be phenomenal lip balm. I haven't been able to bring myself to buy it due to its price. I'll take the 99 cents stuff thank you. But for free, I might give it a go. They are only giving away 1,000 per day between 9 am and noon EDT

This one is being advertised as a "leatherneck" tool kit from Marine Corp Association. It looks like a keychain screwdriver with different heads stored inside.

This one would have been nice this past winter when my windshield stayed dirty due to weather. Still, free is free. NAPA is giving away a free gallon of windshield wiper fluid. Just fill in the info and print your coupon.

Next is an offer for a free Bobblehead doll. You get to choose one of many, but there aren't any pics when you are choosing so you may want to look around the site first. They offer a mini Jesus, Pope, Snoopy or magnetic cat, parrot, shark, or lizard and of course a surfer dude bobble.

And our last freebie this Friday is my attempt to find something new for the kids to listen to on the ever present MP3 players. Free kids music downloads Now I have to admit, they seem to be more for toddlers/preschoolers and my older children probably won't think the songs are cool. But I can't wait to be singing duets with Baby A with songs like: 5 Little Monkeys and The Wheels on the Bus. Maybe this site will give us some new material!

That's it for this weeks five freebies Friday. I know I didn't get to a Wecipe Wednesday this week, but to be honest, I haven't had to cook but two meals in the last two weeks so I wasn't feeling much inspired, although it has been great not cooking. Boy will it be strange to get in the kitchen next week! Have a great weekend!

Hi there, what a lovely and uplifting post...I too have been feeling blessed for a good week and it's so nice to read that many feel that way too!
Have a look at my blog for a lovely before sunset picture!
Would love to try for your freebies links but I guess it must be US only...hmm, maybe I could try the downloads : )
Well done on finishing the dress, I bet she looked lovely.
I hope as the holidays start you will feel inspired as to how to fill the days, I always enjoyed finding things to do with mine, now that they are grown up we still find time to do stuff together.
Love the music on your blog by the way.
Have a great weekend,
