I LOVE Bountiful Baskets!

If you haven't heard of this co-op, you have to look them up! (www.bountifulbaskets.org) You make a 'contribution' to the co-op with your credit card, usually on Tuesday or Wednesday, and the next Saturday get to pick up a laundry basket full of fresh fruits and vegetables. The basic basket is only $15 and I've found the quality to be excellent. Today I went and picked up my basket. Here is what was part of one basket.


It included bananas, celery, sweet potatoes, butternut squash, brown pears, baby carrots, spinach, oranges, apples, broccoli, pummellos and tomatoes - and probably some stuff I'm accidentally leaving out. :)

I also added a 5 loaf pack of 9-grain bread, a 3 loaf pack of cinnamon raisin bread, and a 4 loaf pack of rye bread. All excellent! The bread added $21 to my total cost for this contribution. I spent $36 on what you see. AND, we got pummellos - I've never had a pumello. We're trying new fruits and veggies and eating healthier since starting Bountiful Baskets. YEA!

P.S. Never mind my 2 year old in the background of the photo holding toilet paper. LOL! He was using the packages as 'cars'!

Messy Munchkins (and me)

When my boys take my otherwise clean kitchen and make it look like this:


























And this: (For the record, this is one evenings worth of homework, toddler play, scripture study, paper airplane making, cookie eating, and puzzle doing. I'm not sure the photos do justice to the total chaos and disarray and STUFF everywhere...... And I didn't even take a picture of what's UNDER the table)!


And I'm walking around, picking things up and grumbling to myself about those kids being better about picking up after themselves, and there are going to be consequences....... I am destined to bend over and pick up something like this:


























I think Nate made my hands extra huge so that I could use them like scoops to pick up all their junk. But, somehow, I don't mind so much tonight.
