I Could Not Wait!!

Ok, I tried, really I did. I planned on doing my Show and Tell, I even got it ready. I mean, it is almost Friday...but I couldn't wait. After I got done squealing, I had to take the pictures, and I had to share them. I know you understand!
Hubby needed pop (yes, I am originally from Michigan, and we say pop)...anyways back to the subject....so we stopped at the grocery store. He says, "Do you want to come in?" She says, "Well, ok, if you insist. I will just check the clearance table".
There they were. Take me home. I heard it plain as day......


These itty bitty little pink rose floating candles. (Breathe....)
I put them in my new cup with the pink roses......
Ok, I just cannot even find words.......Too cute!
Then this afternoon look what came.....2 dozen...I could barely get them in the vase....
He is just too good to me.

I am all worn out. This excitement is just about too much. And I didn't even tell you about what I found at the Dollar Tree. That will have to be another day. Squeal overload!

PS. I bought the candles at Fry's Market Place. There are 24 in the package for $3.99. Fry's is owned by Kroger, for those who would like some candles. Glad you all like them!

I KNOW Fry's Groceries!!! [I used to live in Tucson].

I'll have to check for these around here. Hopefully I can find them. Just fill the pretty tea cup with water then?

Way cool.

And, thanks for the anniversary wishes.
