Two Great Discoveries

I made two discoveries that might change my life and I decided to share them with you.
Discovery #1: ALWAYS shop at Hobby Lobby on Saturday evening. They are getting ready to switch the signs over to the next week's ad, but still honoring this week's ad. Basically, you get two week's worth of great deals!! Did you know that?! Change my life:)
Discovery #2: When eating ice cream at Cold Stone Creamery...order the Monster Cookie. It tastes just like monster cookie dough. They make it with oatmeal cookie dough ice cream and mix in chocolate chips, peanut butter, and m&m's. It is the yummiest thing I have EVER eaten.....EVER!!!
So there you have altering information!!

I threw a surprise party for one of my bestest friends in the whole world. It went really well and she didn't know anything until we pulled into the driveway. The BIG surprise was the huge water slide her husband and Vance made her. It was awesome.
Here are some candids of the afternoon.
I have very few pictures of Colby because he was shooting down that thing all the time!
A family photo.
Emma finally warmed up to it.
Mom finally gave it a go.
Natalee of course loved it, but it sure was scary taking her and keeping her safe.
I think Vance went down a 100 times. He was the official tester.
Happy Birthday Corin!
