maybe I should work at Staples

Not much is going on right now. I made my weekly trip to Costco and Target today with my neighbor Stephanie. I didn't buy much, but we had fun looking around. My favorite purchase of the day was a pack of Sharpie fine point pens. Now I know most of you are thinking that is not very exciting, but you must understand...I love office supplies!! I remember looking forward to the start of every school year because we got to go school supply shopping. I think the only part of working in an office that I actually liked was getting new supplies and organizing them. Anyway, the pack of pens on got was on clearance. It was regularly $15.99, but I got them for $3.99. You can't been that!! Plus, there are 24 different colors. I've already written all sorts of things on my calendar, so I could test out the colors.

I took this great video of Elsie the other night while Aaron was playing with her. She is starting to get this great, hardy laugh. I love it!! One of the things that really gets her going is when she is hanging out on her tummy and I grab her legs and flip her over to her back. She thinks it is so fun! I'm so happy to have Elsie in our home. There's never a dull moment, and I'm sure it's just going to get better!

Maybe it's a family thing because Jared was like, "Ooh, Sharpies! I wouldn't mind getting some new ones."

Cute video...Elsie's laugh is adorable!

I'm with you on the office supplies. If I can convince my work to let me work from home, one perk will be stocking up our home office - new pens, post-its, organizing trays, bulletin boards - so fun and so nerdy! Maybe it's a hold over from our "sign making" days in leadership class back in high school.

What a cute laugh! I love school supplies as well, I think some of it is the time of year and nostalgia for starting a new grade.
