a new farmers market

I took my daughter to a new farmers market on friday. (not new, but new to us) It turned out to be a really nice one- I'd like to go back again next week. There was another one on Saturday that we weren't able to get to that is supposed to be very nice as well- maybe next week for that one too.

Friday's haul consisted of one head of red lettuce and 3 cucumbers for $3.50. There were blueberries that smelled/looked really yummy, but were a little more than I wanted to spend. I also considered getting a flowering plant, but I was carrying a baby and didn't think I could juggle a plant as well.

a good deal

The cashier at Rite Aid was more excited than I was about this deal.. and he was a guy. He even got out a calculator to figure out how much I paid for each box.

- 4 boxes of 28+ count always infinity (reg 9.99?) on sale for 6.99. and I had a $4 off coupon for each one.
- 4 packages of carefree liners on sale for $1.00. and I had a $1 off coupon for each one.
- PLUS I had a $5 off $25+ purchase coupon.
TOTAL: $6.96

ah, my daughter..

I take care of her all day, wake up with her at night, feed her, change her, hold her, hug her, read to her, watch endless noggin/sprout/pbs/nickjr with her, comfort her, dress her, bath her, play with her, clean her, wash her clothes, take her out, buy her things, wipe up her drool, cut her nails, put orajel on her gums, keep her out of trouble, and on.

And that's sort of "fine" with her.. but the second dada comes home it's squeals of delight and crawling all over the room following him around. Mommy who? Kind of breaks my heart- a bad way.

$2.50 ruined my day

I woke up early enough that my husband hadn't left for work yet and I actually got to take a shower without worrying that my daughter would wake up.

There were hardly any cars out when we got out for the day (10am!). I kept getting green light after green light on the way to Target.

When we got to Target the parking lot was about 1/4 of what it normally is like on a Saturday.. the same for inside the store. I found everything I was looking for and had a mountain of coupons. My daughter was super good in the store- didn't cry or fuss at all. AND the cashier actually asked if I had a bag to use when I checked out..

But then when I got into the car and looking at my receipt I realized the cashier had missed scanning $2.50 worth of coupons I had given her. And that just ruined my entire day.
