Happy Memorial Day Weekend!

I hope the weekend is shaping up great for you! It is for me. :)

Yesterday, I packed up the kids, picked up my mom and headed to the Wylie Farmer's Market. Since is rained last Saturday, it was rescheduled for yesterday. I purchased some great strawberries from a family farm out of Farmersville. They are huge and sweet...and so yummy!

After that, we went garage saleing. That didn't turn out super successful, but I ended up with 5 auctions and spent only $2 out of pocket (plus gas). The up side is, 3 of the 5 auctions have watchers already (I listed while the kids napped). Once the kids woke up we headed to Goodwill for their 50% clothing sale. I saved $16.50 and ended up with 10 things for auction and 2 new with tag (NWT) items for my daughter. A pair of jeans for school and a denim Gap dress for now/school. I also purchased a paperback for me and my daughter found a wooden doll high chair in excellent condition for $2. She loves it!

Today, we heading to Kroger to pick up a few things (fun stuff on sale) and the ingredients for Strawberries 'N Cream Shortcake Squares. It's for tomorrow's cookout. First, I thumbed through all of my Food & Family's (from Kraft Foods) but ended up just using the online recipe search to find it. I wanted something easy and something that the kids could help with. This has a 15 min. prep time, then chills for 3 hours. Plus it only has 4 ingredients. Yay!

Remember that the Food & Family magazine is (FREE) full of recipes and usually contains coupons. Plus, Kraft Foods has printables as well! Have a great and safe weekend!!
