Thrifty Thursday!

What's that?  It's Thursday already, you say?
There's suppose to be a thrifty tip here?
Oh my...those snow days completely throw me off.
Yesterday, I felt like it was Saturday all day.

We did get to hear the heartbeat of our baby this morning!
It was so strong and fast!  Right around 150 beats per minute.
We also scheduled an ultrasound for one month from today to find out if we're having a boy or girl!

Then it was home to work on these sweet treats:

Red Velvet Whoopie Pies

I'll post the recipe tomorrow...we'll have to call it Fat Friday.  Yep, these babies are not fat free...or even healthy at all for that matter.  Just pure sugar, cakey, ooey goodness.

SO, since we are on the brink of my birthday week...let's do a little repeat with some Birthday Thrifty Tips...aka free stuff!
