This is a fun weekend for us, our youngest is turning 1.  In honor of her (and the guests that come with 1 year old birthdays) we haven’t done much shopping.  I made it to Publix, Kroger, and Walgreens. We have really been living off of our stockpile for the last month or so, and beginning next week it’s time to start restocking.
