Tom got a half day off work so we celebrated his birthday in style at our first local Diners, Drive-ins and Dives restaurant: The Shanty. I started with Pineapple Sangria…
Then we tried one of the dishes they showcased on the show: Whiskey Shrimp. It was delish.
And another dish they profiled in DD&D: Blackened Conch Filet. Super yummy.
And a free birthday dessert!
Then we went to check out the Costco in Wisconsin—just a few miles away!
We were very excited to learn there was a Lego store here which meant we could continue the Lego builds!
Today was the Proof of Residency/packet pickup for school. It was quite the process overall as we were there for about an hour, though most of that was time doing other stuff like signing up for library cards, talking to people about school programs, shopping for spirit wear, etc. Of course they only had Katie’s packet (?!) so it was a bit more involved to get Owen’s info (they were able to print some but I’ll have to pick up the rest at his school in a few days).
Shopping before the store opens…the benefits of being related to the owner. We brought home 18 packs of brats!!
Of course we had to check out the Sam’s Club.
Jami was showing me a local grocery store so we each picked out a wine for the hotel room… Plus I grabbed a candy kebob for the kids and she picked up green Sriracha on my recommendation (we happened to be walking by).
Super soaker water guns!
I missed this last year so when I saw it today at Target I had to buy some, even though the last thing I need to be doing before we move is buying more stuff.
I never take Katie in this cart because it’s huge and a pain. But she has daddy wrapped around her finger.
They were clearance and I had coupons so I agreed.
When Katie and I were clothes shopping for her and Owen the other day, I saw these PJs for Owen and they also happened to have Katie’s size and she said she wanted them. I asked if she was sure she wanted FOOTBALL pajamas and she said yes, she wanted to match her brother.
So tonight they went up to get their PJs on and we hear giggling as they’re coming down the stairs… And then we see this.
Who doesn’t love a chewy chocolatey coconutty Girl Scout Samoa? But who wants to pay $4 a box? So when we saw these at Costco for $8 for three boxes, we were all over it.
Yeaaaahhh. Not so much.
They were similar but definitely not replacement quality. So the kids get the cheap ones and we’ll easy the good ones.
These? Suck. They’re horrible and not one of us liked them. They went straight into the trash.
These are what I hoped they were like—just a cheaper version. I was wrong.
