Happy Friday everyone! It’s been a busy week in my neck of the woods. I got a call yesterday that my brother and his wife were at the hospital a few days earlier than expected preparing to have their first child. Baby Olivia was a nice Valentine’s Day surprise. I had to run out and visit them this morning. It is just too cute seeing first time parents…it makes me think back to when my guys were tiny.
In addition to baby fun – I have been a shopping fool. The funny thing is – I only did one big shopping trip!
I ran in on Saturday to grab Jake’s birthday cake (not in totals as it comes from the entertainment budget). Then, I was going to my big shop on Tuesday but they were totally out of Juicy Juice. My dear friend had sent me a bunch of Juicy Juice and Rice Krispies coupons so I decided to go back and do my big trip on Wednesday once they were able to re-stock. On my way back from seeing my niece this morning I stopped by again. I am going to make a lasagna to take over to my brother tomorrow and could not remember if I had ricotta and an extra aluminum pan. So, rather than taking a chance I made a quick trip today instead of having to drag the boys out later.
Phew…four trips in one week – that’s a lot for me!
I spent a little over $66. As I was typing this list I realized that I forgot to buy a couple of peppers that I need for my drunken bean recipe that I am making on Sunday. SO…it looks like I will be doing one more trip tomorrow after I take the lasagna to my bro! It’s a good thing that I heart Publix – tee hee!
