Quick Weekend Review

It was HOT! We went swimming in Mimi & Papa's pool (which was COLD) on Saturday, but it was fun. About 30 minutes after we came in, a huge dust storm rolled in just in time for naps, and that was really exciting- it felt like summer! Then we did a family trip to Costco and had dinner at Mangos. It seems like we are always going in different directions on Saturdays so it was fun to spend the day all together. I found a few really great things at Costco (of course) that I couldn't wait to share! First this huge beautiful pack of scrapbook paper:
It's just regular, one sided, light weight paper, but it's so pretty and less than $.04 per page, $13.50 for 360 12x12 sheets of paper. That's a steal! So I had to come home and start using it immediately. (just until the Glitz Design line comes out of course) I got a few more pages done for Miss G's book but they are nothing special so you don't get to see them! Also, I discovered you can get a giant 2lb bag of yeast there for like $4, and giant jars of chicken broth powder and beef broth powder for less than $4 each. Those are things I always run out of and buy small expensive jars from the grocery store so I was thrilled. Maybe I will learn to bake bread now...

Good luck with the bread. I can't quite get inspired to do that unless most is already done in the box. also, that paper is a steal! my sister-in-law scrapbooks a lot and makes awesome cards so I am gonna have to give her the link to your blog, if that's ok.

Hey maybe I'm a traitor to Glitz but I am totally still gonna buy other peoples stuff :) That is a smokin' deal on the paper. Everybody go and grab at least one.
