Early Saturday morning during BlogHer Food, I had the chance to – literally – shop till I dropped.
And it wasn’t just me!
I was really excited about this because we don’t have a HomeGoods here. I’ve heard of it, sure, but I had never been in one before.
Opening up a store early for a group of women to shop? That HomeGoods team is smart.
Did you ever watch Supermarket Sweep growing up?
I did. All the time. I would shout at the tv while they were running through the aisles. “Go get the meat! Grab some medicine! Stay away from the cereal – you won’t get enough!!”
Our little shopping spree wasn’t nearly that intense, but it was definitely fun and we all found some great stuff.
HomeGoods greeted us with a spread from Panera for breakfast since we were there shopping at 8 am. After fueling up and hearing from the HomeGoods team, we grabbed our baskets and got moving.
I saw one book that reminded me of a certain bacon and sprinkle loving friend
And started filling my basket with all kinds of goodies.
I found some really cute mini loaf bakers, mini frying pan saucers, a butter yellow cake stand, polka dot plates and a stand, a tart pan, wood cutting board, roasted walnut oil, and…
…a Breville Juicer!!!
Okay, I didn’t find it. Susan did.
But after following her around the store and looking for another one (and maybe a bit of begging), she let me have it. We live just 5 minutes away from each other, so I told her should could come over and have juice any time.
I am so excited!!!
I ended up spending more than I planned (especially with the juicer), but it was all at great prices and much cheaper than if I had bought everything at a different store.
Now – what do I use first?
Any juice combinations I should try first? Suggestions on what to use that walnut oil for?
