I do my best to stay out of Costco because it's usually an expensive swing around the warehouse store followed by a $1.50 hot dog and soda that I really didn't need (along with a ton of other stuff stacked in my cart). But this week required stocking up my bare cupboards and this jar of chocolate caramel deliciousness landed in my cart with the silent pledge to "Only eat ONE per day!".
You can see how well that pledge worked... Although I did have a partner in crime, my husband.
I learned a fascinating thing about Costco, Sam's Club and BJ's-- They always have a beautiful display of affordable fresh flowers on hand, but did you know they also do bridal flowers! Seriously, you can get a "wedding in a box" so to speak, delivered to your front door-- Bride's bouquet, bridemaids' bouquets, boutonnieres and rose pedals for the flower girl, the works. Who knew!?!
And you can buy bulk flowers as well. That's how I found out about it. I Googled "bulk baby's breath" and there it was.
Baby's breath was on my mind for my niece who's getting married in May, 2015-- The same niece that's going to graduate as a Veterinarian two weeks before her big day. She'd like to work with large animals. Good thing, huh? (PS She's 5' 6" tall!)
Did I show you this photo already?
This baby quilt was finished and shipped off to a new mama. I think she was pretty happy with it. At least grandma/my friend was who said if she knew what my gift was she'd have kept the blanket at her house for the baby. Ha!
Did I show you this photo already too? A mind is a terrible thing to waste.
And I've been spotting this sign around Beverly Hills at all the public parking lots.
Give me spare change
and I may never get off
these streets. Give to
organizations that could
really help me
and you could save my life.
It's up to you.
It's up to you.
I'm not sure how I feel about it. What do you think?

Oh good lord, how on earth did I turn this red on? And what's with that white bar up there? Sheesh. A mind really IS a terrible thing to waste. Sigh.
