Super Excited

I'm super excited because I get to go shopping today. Grocery shopping. I love it. It makes me feel wifely and motherly. Getting food for my family, things they enjoy fills me with happiness.

Derek snickers when I come home from the store because I always some type of little surprise for him. No big deal, it's usually some kind of candy or food that he likes. I guess it's my way of showing him how much I love him and that I was thinking of him.

Anyway, I get to go BIG shopping today.

When I was a kid and my Mom would go to the store me and my sisters would always ask "Are you going BIG shopping?" It was pretty exciting when she did because then we would have snacks. Not a lot, but some. I think my mom was the same way. I think she liked to get us little things from the store that she knew we liked. I remember her buying Sarah Ritz crackers. Sarah loves them, I don't know why though.

I'm buying stuff to make Christmas dinner today which I'm really excited about. I'm a little nervous though. Grandma Kay is coming and I've never really cooked for her before. I'll have to blog about Grandma Kay. You'll get a kick out of her. She is a pretty amazing woman, even though she can drive you crazy sometimes; I love her.

Christmas is coming! Christmas is coming! I'm so excited! Shopping makes it seem more real.


  1. BIG shopping!!! I loved it when Mom went BIG shopping. And yes, I loved my Ritz. You can blame Grandma and Grandpa Doebler for that one, they hooked me when I was little.

    I'm going shopping today, too! Putting my list together as we speak, er, type...

    Love you!

  2. I like BIG grocery shopping too, but then I dont want to eat at my house for the next 3 days or so. I like how pretty the pantry and fridge look when they're full of food. Dont wanna waste that by feeding my family:)
