No Super Saving Shopping Trip – Instead A Party & A Graduation!

Well, I think I can count on one hand over the last year the amount of times I didn’t have a Shopping trip to share with you.  And we can add this week to the list.

I had mentioned during the week that this weekend was going to be a busy one and that is exactly what it was.  Busy, fun, memorable and I enjoyed time with family.  We had the prom on Thursday, a joint graduation party for my daughter (college) and my son (high school) yesterday. And today was the actual high school graduation.

I did make a trip to ShopRite for the Free Kraft Salad Dressing during the week as well as a couple of trips to CVS where I scored the free Skinny Cow ice cream.  But other then that, no shopping.  So, I thought I would introduce you to the rest of my family.  This was taken today after the graduation.  As you can see from the umbrellas, the rain did not hold off but it was still a great day.

On the left is my daughter Megan, that’s me, my son Patrick, my mom, my dad, my daughter Nikki, and my husband Pat.  Obviously my son get’s his height from my husband because the rest of us are just plain short.

And our party:

My Niece Isabella...such a cutie!

My Grandma Anna - She is 94 and she looks great!

The graduates cutting the cake which my daughter Nikki made!

Just chillin, eating and enjoying the beautiful day!

I hope you guys had a great weekend.  How were your shopping trips. Don’t forget, the ShopRite Kraft/GM/Unilever “Give Me Your Best Deal” giveaway is going on. Let us know what you came up with to make this deal great!

And, back to the deals of course….
