no clue...

this past sunday i was doing grocery shopping for small groups that night. it was going to be larger than normal because we were combining the 3 of them so i needed alot of food. (((50 hot & warm cookies, 4 bags of chocolate, 2 bags of chips, 5 two liters, a fruit tray, & lots of pigs in a blacket all gone in no time )))

to save time washing dishes later that that night i picked up these ((( selfish of me, huh?!?! )))...



i just liked the color (((they matched the plates i had already picked out))) & just glancing at them i thought the blue sticker was a coupon!!!! ((( i'm a little obsessed with finding coupons! )))

i get them home to discover that you PULL the blue sticker off & underneath is a black square for you to write your name with your fingernail.

BRILLIANT idea!!! no more running around to find a permanent marker!

i had no clue that these simple cups that i picked up by accident would be the hit of the party with all the teenagers.

every time one would walk into the kitchen, another student would tell them about how cool they were. it was really funny to watch them all talk about cups.

just a reminder that:
its the small & simple things in life that make us smile!

Your blog is awesome and your boys are too cute. I have two boys too it's it a blast!

Yes it is legit tons of people use it. Hopefully there are restaurants in your area that you would like to try or have tried that are also on restaurant.com There is a minimum requirement before you can use the card which is typically $20. It's great!

Thanks for visiting,
