Here are my deals from Walmart….

walmart coupon deals 7-25-15

I have found that I get the best deals using price matching at my local Walmart.  I normally  use the weekly ads from  Albertsons and Super 1 Foods to score the best deals and it’s even better when I have a coupon to use.

Today I decided to run by Walmart and here is what I picked up using only coupons.

When I arrived, I wasn’t sure what to expect but after visiting with with family and touring the grounds, I highly recommend stopping by if you are in the area.  If you are looking a destination to camp or park your RV, I would put this Krause Springs at the top of my list.

Jacobs Well in Wimberly, Texas is considered one of the most dangerous diving spots in the world, yet people flock to see it every year.  It has a fantastic history and is one of those rare feats of nature that you can actually get up close and personal with but there are going to be changes for visitors beginning May 2015.  You can check out all of the information on my travel blog Sweet Southern Traveler.

Farm2home 2015~ P Allen Smith

I have been a long time fan of P Allen Smith so I jumped at a chance to visit Moss Mountain Farm.  It was in incredible day filled with information from the great people at Arkansas Grown and Arkansas Made.  Living on a family farm, I appreciate the hard work and care it takes grow our food and how important it is to support locally made and grown products.  It’s not only important to know where our food comes from but that we are feeding our families healthy, nutritious foods.


Not only did I get to hang out with P Allen Smith but I got to hang out with some amazing men and women with Arkansas Women Bloggers and local producers around Arkansas.


 We had the opportunity to sample some great products for vendors around Arkansas.


 I would love to have this truck….seriously, it’s cute and has ice cream!

Maternity Photos, Biloxi, MS


For my daughters maternity photos, we decided to travel to Biloxi, Ms to capture these beautiful beach shots.  This is my first grandchild and I am so excited….you can also expect many photos of my grandchild once he is born.  His name is Daniel Edward Shelman III (aka Tripp) and he due to arrive in this world on August 31, 2015.


Isn’t she one beautiful mama to be?  I keep telling her that Tripp will look back at the photos one day and say WOW….I’m sure all of his friends will be jealous.  I never looked that good pregnant (or any other time).
