  1. Even though it is Friday, my oldest and I headed out to see what was what. I can attest to one thing, all the coffee (that is good) is wiped from the grocer shelves.

    And since I know who to go and talk to in the grocery store they opened a lane just for us too. ( It must have been my girly smile.)

    I love having superpowers. ;o)
