Show Stopper Saturday #43 ~ Refreshing Salads

Happy Saturday, my friends!!

We enjoyed a fun night camping with just the youngest.  It was a last minute adventure.  It was so last minute… I couldn’t believe I forgot to pack the butter!!  It was a little bit of a panic.  But, we managed.  

We also didn’t have $21 CASH for the camp space.  Justin thought he was having to go all the way back down the canyon to an ATM… but I saved the day and happened to scrounge $21 in coins… all from the nooks and crannies in my truck.  Is that bad that I have had that many coins laying around in my truck… and not my purse?!

    I love that you are out camping with the family. I’m actually totally impressed that you were able to save the day. Here I was thinking I was doing good for having more than $2 in quarters in my wallet when the hubs needed it. We never carry cash or coins so I was shocked I had it. So you totally ROCK in my book!

    Have a great weekend! Hugs

    Thanks for hosting! Okay, I am cracking up–for Realz……21 dollars in change, in your truck??? You are too funny, Gloria. But, I am betting that at least a big portion of that was probably hauled there by your little one (at least if he’s anything like my youngest two-always carrying around coins in their pockets). Have a great weekend.

    Today, I went to the beach with my kids. I found a sea shell
    and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed
    the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is
    entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!
