Day 4 - What ya grilling?

So we are doing it again. Today if you are trying to win your wishlist again by commenting... let me know what your plans are for father's day. Either here or on my facebook page. I always wonder what folks grill. We will probably be grilling. I love to ask my hubby to grill lots of things. Tin foil with chopped up apples, a little butter, cinnamon and brown sugar. PERFECT for after you've eaten Dinner you can pull it off the grill and eat plain or pour over ice cream. oh homemade ice cream sounds good to. So yum.

But here is your winner for yesterdays comments!!!

On to life...
Yesterday my son and I went to see the Chipmunks movie. I must say I am not a huge Chipmunks fan. My son found it hillarious. It was nice to do some hang out time. Trying to make the point to be more active over summer this year. This means I get more done suprisingly because I have a smaller window and spend last time.. surfingggg and pinning. But it was a good movie and the best part was his giggling and laughing. We went to the grocery store after and picked up some cereal and added to my stash for school lunches. I am a couponer... The laziest couponer you have EVER seen. I usually save at least the amount I pay and usually half as more of what I pay. I rarely get a paper to do the clippity clip. I mostly just print out a coupon for what we would use. We go through Cereal like you would not believe and right now my guys favorite is on sale so I got a few boxes of those. And I got some granola bars to add to the school year supply stash. They can be so pricey so 1.00 for a box of 8 name brand granola bars makes me happy. And I got those weird apple sauce in the go go tubes.. am I saying that right? they are squeezers? well I had a coupon for abox of those so I got some for our trip to California this summer. Perfect for in the car on the drive and a little healthier then gas station food on the way. If you have any secret tips for car drives and keeping 8 year olds from saying ARE WE THERE YET? well let me know. I'd love to know... :) My plan is to give him the little protable gps we have with addresses programmed in ahead of time.

And we got supplies for the Father's Day project we are working on tomorrow. woohoo! Pictures of that after Sunday. I hope it comes out uber cute.

Okay on to a few other things.. ...

I mentioned a SWEEEET Deal at the beginning of the week. And here it is. I have a chunk of older files that have never made it to the store. I have grouped them up in a bundle for $5.00 for these 24 zip downloads. For sale until June 17th. The files included have lots of cuts in them. I think one has 20 different cuts all on its own. I am giving you the opportunity to purchase them at a bulk rate before I load them to the store individually. If you have been with me from the beginning you would have gotten these files about 7-8 years ago. They are much older. So check your sku numbers which I will list at the store in the product description.
Purchase Here in the store.  Not available as a bundle after June 17th, 2012
File types included: AI, GSD(v2.4), DXF, KNK, MTC, SVG, WPC(v14)

And then on to the freebie!!!

I am reworking this and have to convert. I will add it to this post within the next few hours. Gotta make my kiddo some breakfast. :-) Sorry for the delay but there will be one today. I wanted to post the winner early for those who are entering the drawing again today!

Okay sorry it took me so long to get back to this. Lost track of the day running around with my son to get supplies to finish our Father's Day project. and our freebie is the tag for this project. 
which I will have to post after Sunday. but it basically read 
For a Fungi... pronounced FUN GUY. and there are mushrooms involved.  Really I think this was the project my son chose to do because it reminded him of a Super Mario Bros. character. haha. but I hope my husband likes it. It has been fun to work on with my son. 
So project next week check back in with me. but free file today. 

You can download here. and if it asks for a password it is iagreetou. 


Here is the repetitive information from previous posts...

Same Deal today.. Comment on my blog or my facebook page under the post for THIS blog posting (heading Day 3 - happy birthday title freebie) . and you will be entered again for a random drawing of your store wishlist. So comment and take the time to fill out your wishlist  in the store with files you really would like to win. Here is a repeat below of info from yesterday. 

It is my birthday week. Woohooo! Those who have followed my blog know that I love to give away things my birthday week to celebrate. I am doing it a little differently this year. Last year I gave away some wishlists to folks that don't even own a cutter anymore.( wew really wow? the thought of giving up one of my four machines makes me cringe and have heart palpitations.)  So this year. I am asking that you comment on this post (at my blog) or on my facebook under the same day post.
 I will draw tomorrow for a wishlist from those who comment here (at my blog for those reading in the forum) or for those who have commented on my facebook post for this blog post. I will try to notate it very closely. And yes, if you post both places you will get an entry for each post. (If you are on facebook and plan to follow along there make sure to add me to your news feed so you don't miss a post. You can do so by clicking Liked and selecting "show in news feed.")

What is a wishlist? It's in the store.. add any of my items you realllly really want to your wishlist (I will not be giving out more then 20 per wishlist) and then comment here and facebook and you will be entered for each comment to win your whole wishlist tomorrow. Come back tomorrow and do it all over again! This way I am giving you the files I know you really wish for!!

To get quick fun updates of things going on, you can join my facebook page.

My files in the store can be located here. Thank you for stopping by!

For Father's Day this year we're doing a combo Father's Day/my birthday cookout. Too many (non-birthday) things going on on my birthday so we're combining them.

Thank you Chris for another chance to win our wishlists! :-)

We are going to go boating on Lake Michigan for Fathers Day. It will be hot and the water should be flat. What a great way to spend the day.
Thank you for the freebies and the bundle offer.

Sandy said...

Ha! Love the freebie! Happy Birthday! For Father's Day, I'm baking a Prime Rib for dh. Then, I'm getting him a computer game - whichever one he chooses. If he doesn't want a pc game, I'll buy him some movies. His choice!

scoobie81 said...

We're grilling for Father's Day! Of course! LOL Steaks, roasted potatoes, fresh asparagus and warm brownies (his fave!) I love the idea of the apples and cinnamon! We'll have to try it! Thanks so much for the opportunity to win, Chris, it's a super gift!

Kelly S said...

Cute freebie! For Father's Day, my sister and I will take my dad out to eat.

Anna said...

Thanks again Chris but this adorable file. Not sure what the plans are for Fathers day here yet.

momof5 said...

Love your files and your creativeness. Thanks for sharing. We are planning to have a nice dinner at home as a family like always. The kids and I are also going to try and wake up early to fix breakfast in bed for hubby (but when he is used to getting up at 4:30 am to go to the gym it is difficult to beat him up. LOL)

Anonymous said...

We don't do much as all our family is out of state. Hubby grills some really good stuff. Usually steaks, and a mix of squash, mushrooms and broccoli lightly grilled. Awesome and good for you.

Lynn C. ( said...

Since my husband is managing a job in the oil field in Williston, ND, he won't be home. But I'll be at my sister's grilling turkey. Yummmmm
That is what her husband wanted for Father's Day. For me to come and cook a turkey for him on the Weber Kettle Grill. So I am going.
Thanks for the feebie. He loves mushrooms but won't get any with the meal I'm cooking.

Jill M said...

Thanks again for a wonderful file. This year we will be celebrating Fathers Day by going out to dinner, but our absolute favorite grilling is steak!

lilred said...

Since my husband has to work this weekend, we celebrated last weekend. So, no grilling here. But when we grill I love his baby back ribs. Yummy
Thanks for the file.
