It’s hard to believe it is Monday already–our weekend really flew by. We hosted a very fancy Princess Tea Party on Saturday, which I promise to share with you very soon, and then on Sunday we headed to the Pirate Fest at Fisherman’s Village, a local tourist spot. Our girls weren’t really into the pirates but they did love the live mermaids!
This week I decided to skip Staples but I did make a quick–as in left-my-kids-and-husband-waiting-in-the-car–stop at both CVS and Walgreens after church. There wasn’t a lot I wanted at CVS besides milk & cheap olives, but the magic coupon machine surprised me with a $5 ECB Beauty Club reward (yay!), a $1/1 Orbit Gum coupon (reg. price $1.37), and a coupon for a FREE package of Always pantiliners. It was all very unexpected, but it made for a fun trip. As an old boyfriend once said, it’s better to be lucky than good!
Here is what I got:
