    Yea! 5 Fridays.

    My sister and I are going to do some female bonding by going to Sams Club using a visitor’s pass. We usually go once a year when they have the pass (with 10% markup on your purchase) because there isn’t one conveniently close and we “share” a Costco membership, which we both pass daily going to our jobs.

Really great group of people but I mentioned the food because I HATE spaghetti! I have been to 4 such dinners this year – LOL. We aren’t rich and we aren’t wonderful people – we just do what we can for the causes that are important to us. I have another spaghetti dinner next week – -LOL- good thing the husband likes it. As for me, salad, sauce and bread sticks. Happy weekend!
