S is for . . .#AtoZChallenge

Tomorrow is a rest day in the A to Z Challenge but for today


It is only 12:26 on a Saturday and between last night and today, I have done a heck of a lot of shopping!

Last night was grocery shopping - you can check out the picture of my crazy cart here!

I shopped on Amazon Prime last night and ordered the movie Hidden Figures.  Oh my goodness - run and watch it right now if you haven't already done so.

I slept a few hours and hit the ground running again today.

Does buying gas count as shopping??  I've done that at the local Shell Gas station!

Does picking up a prescription count as shopping?  I've done that at the local Walgreen's!!

I went to Trader Joe's and made a few purchases. These are the things I bought to surprise Mark.  He LOVES dark chocolate and he loves curry.  I bought a couple of other things and spent $50 . . .after already spending A LOT last night.  Probably should not have done that . . .

After tootling around in Trader Joe's . . .I was waiting on Talbots to open . . .
I sprinted across (hahahaha!) the parking lot to Talbots.

One of the things I love about Talbots is the sales ladies (they may have men but I've never seen one).  I met the nicest lady this morning and we chatted as she rang up my purchases.  Mark has always said that I can "bag my limit" at Talbots!  I'm so excited.  I can wear something new to work next week!!

On my way home, I made one more shopping stop!

I had seen this ad on our neighborhood facebook page and thought I would stop and browse on my way home.  I bought a tiny gift.  I put the business card by the bag so you could tell how tiny the bag with little handles really is!!  Amanda Skinner with Hosanna Beads was incredibly kind.  If you ever see her at any kind of craft bazaar, you should stop and buy something.  She has no idea I'm posting about her but I love to give a local person a shout out!! She has an Etsy shop HosannaBeads!
I also talked to the Matilda Jane rep for a long time about clothes for Emma and she gave me a catalogue to share with my daughter-in-law.
I'm going to be honest . . .I think I'm keeping those earrings for myself but just in case you receive them as a gift . . .you know I decided I love you more! hahaha!!  (I didn't say any names on purpose!)

S is for SUDS

Now I'm home and I guess my S word will be suds because I have a mountain of laundry and dishes and cleaning to do!!  You can't even see any of my island or counter space because they are all covered in groceries and laundry!

S is for Steeple to Steeple . . .sleepers, too

I know that some of our friends and co-workers participated in the Steeple to Steeple race this morning - isn't that a cool name?  10K run from one church to another - 5K run starting at one church - everyone ends up at the same church for a party!  There may have been some sprinting and maybe a super hero or two at the race.  Lot's of S's today!!  I participated . . .I was a SLEEPER!!  Really!!  I paid on line and was a sleeper.  I wasn't the only one!  Two major churches are competing for the coveted trophy (a giant wooden church with a steeple) and I haven't heard the results. . .I hope we won!!!

S is for Saturday

What are you doing on this Saturday?


  1. Hello fellow A-to-Zer! Sounds like you've had a busy day! :) Beads, eh? Do you make jewelry? I do (though you'll only find one beads-related post on my blog, and it isn't about jewelry, but Christmas ornaments). I like natural stone beads best, when they've just been cut and polished, not re-colored. What beads did you buy?

  2. Hidden Figures is a fantastic movie. I saw it when it came out and really loved it. Sounds like you had a super busy weekend. Have fun at your cookout on Tuesday.WeekendsInMaine

  3. Oh how I love dark chocolate! I would have gone and bought that too if I was in your place, only I would have kept it all for myself! I too love new clothes and very easily understand your excitement for wearing something new to work. I hope you have a wonderful and blessed week!

  4. Saturdays & Shopping are great 'S' words :)
    This Saturday was busy catching up. Weekeends are meant for that, right :)
