This little number from West Elm would look great on my bed,and at $69 for a queen, it's not unfairly priced.
But then I saw this very similar duvet cover from target for only $25 for a queen.
I love to save money, and if I can get something for $25, I have a hard time spending $69 for it. So while $44 doesn't seem like a huge savings, you are saving almost double what you spent on the lower priced duvet.
So after this week, I have saved you all a total of $1421. Not too bad :)

In other news, we did re-paint the bed today. It is the same color it was, we just touched up parts that got scratched in the move. We can't wait to move into our new place next sunday!

*** I apologize for the crappy photos. My camera is packed so these are iPhone photos...
3 ingredient Peach Cobbler
What you need:
1 box white cake mix
1 can clear soda (sprite, sierra mist, diet is best)
Frozen Peaches (two bags)
1. Preheat the oven at 350. Pam the bottom of a 9x13 pan. Dump the frozen peaches into the pan.
2. Mix the box of cake mix and a can of Sprite. I bought a bottle because it was cheaper, so fun fact- 1 can is 1 1/2 cups.
3. Mix well and pour over peaches.
Please excuse the shadow of my hands lol
4. Bake for 50-60 minutes or until top is firm and golden brown.
This cobbler is easy and it was pretty delicious! The frozen peaches became soft and sweet, but a little tart. The top was fluffy and good. Not quite as "cobbler" like and crumbly like I like, but it had a good flavor. Maybe next time I would mix half and sprinkle the plain cake mix on top. That would create a streusel like topping. The best part is that one serving (1/12 th of the cobbler ) is only 4 WW Pts +! That is great for a dessert!
Best part is, you can make it with any type of frozen fruit! Please, try this recipe. If you do, please tell me what you think!!

This week, I am looking at rugs. As you know, I am a fan of chevron patterned things, rugs being no exception. I found this beauty on Pottery Barn. It will cost you $599 for an 8x10.
But this rug from rugsusa.com, (which comes highly recommended by many, including my sister in law) will give you the same look but only cost you $222 for an 8x10.
Am I saving you thousands? No, you greedy ladies. But those $377 will add up fast!
So far in two weeks I have saved you all $1377. You're welcome.

I have had past experiences with couch to 5k. It is hard. I think it probably too hard for me at my current weight. I really need to start slower, and more basic, than C25K. That is where this new program I found comes in.
This program starts off a little slower, and really works up an endurance. I think I am going to do this program before I start C25K again. I think once I do this, I can really succeed with running.
It just looks so easy! I think I will follow this plan.
I will make sure to take lots of pictures and share how it goes on Sunday!

I love these glasses and her tutorial seemed easy enough to follow, but I planned to make a few tweaks. I was going to use glass etching cream instead of frosted glass spray paint, so it was more permanent. (She mentioned that the spray paint is not dishwasher safe).
So I went to Ikea, and picked up some glasses, went to Michaels to get the painters tape and glass etching cream, and went to town.
I taped a chevron pattern starting at the bottom of the glass.
Then I brushed on a thick-ish coat of the Etching Cream.
