Shopping Cart

My husband is on vacation all this week. Today we ran errands together...I know, sad isn't it? Before kids, we would have "done something"...now errands without children constitutes a "day out"! And to be honest, I actually rather enjoyed his company! We even went the commissary together! (Just so you know, we spent $70 more this week due to his "extras" that magically appeared in the shopping basket!)

We checked our mail and my Just Cards Magazine arrived! Of course, I immediately pulled it out of the plastic protector and started thumbing through.

"Oh my gosh!" I exclaimed.

"What?" DH asks.

"I got some cards printed in the magazine!!!!"

"Great, " he says sarcastically.

"What is that supposed to mean?" I ask.

"That more validation you get, the more money that gets sucked from my wallet."

OK...and his point is.....?????

Here are pictures of the cards that got published. I am now off to do some online shopping. :)

Congrats on getting the cards published. They are beautiful.

Welcome to our blog group. I just added you to my blog.

Also, my kids will be mailing your kids cards this week. They have the cards made but I wanted them to write something about themselves before I drop them in the mail.

Have a great weekend! I'll be checking out your blog often now.
