Weekend Recap: Snow, Snow, and More Snow

This past weekend was COLD. And it snowed. A LOT. I shared my Friday night adventures with you already ( read about it here ). So I won't get into it but here's a much better, natural light selfie of me wearing one of my new soft and comfy Costco sweater finds....which was PERFECT for Valentine's Day don't ya think?

Except instead of snow it was really thick ice. They were very impressed and tried to save it...I won't even ask what the heck they're learning in school (facepalm). Then they decided to try to make a skating rink on our back patio. Sounds like a great idea in theory, but, our patio is sloped and I knew it wasn't going to work. HOWEVER they were working so well together I didn't have the heart to tell them their dreams of a backyard skating r

Costco Fashion Finds: Is That Even a Thing?

Did I mention I'm not really a selfie taking pro yet? 

When I was a kid, I used to HATE getting dragged to Costco. No idea why. I just hated going. I was also ultra mortified if my parents even THOUGHT about buying my clothes there. Sooo uncool mom. So uncool. 

Now, fast forward like 100 years later, I'm OBSESSED with Costco. I follow every "Costco Find" Instagram account and am like a top commenter/over sharer in my local Costco finds Facebook group.

Last Friday night, I was psyched. My hubby took the kids tobogganing and I, decked out with a mask and hand sanitizer went to Costco to pick up groceries for the week. I prewarned my husband not to look at any online banking or credit card statements later that night. I was a mom on the loose. We are under strict COVID-19 lockdown measures and I hadn't left the house in weeks. My mission was simple. I was going to spend as much time looking at every single item in that store...even if it killed me. And even if I didn't need said items.

Look don't judge me. YOU DON'T KNOW!!! Every store is closed. No Winners. No Home Sense. No DSW. No Sephora or MAC, or .... no MALLS!!!!! All I had in my life were the staples: the grocery store, Walmart, and the LCBO. I needed to get the hell out of this house. Costco was my ticket. And baby...I cashed that sucker in so hard.

I walked every aisle. I gazed at the pots and pans, examined every towel, and cried a little at the thought of no more taste testing stations (I totally could have gotten a free dinner out of this trip). I had a great time. 

I can't pretend I saved so much money (I may have passed out when I saw the total...just kidding) or bought some really amazingly tasty treats (my groceries were pretty basic that day) but I did pick up a few sweaters and leggings for myself and sweaters for the kids. All I want are comfy clothes that look cute but are loose and amazing, and won't break the bank, and these fashion finds definitely delivered on that front. Everything was between $12.99 and $14.99. I didn't take any pics of the leggings. I mean, they're black, made of cotton, have a comfy waistband and came folded in a package of two for $12.99. Does it get more tragic than that? If only my 12 year old self could see me now!

Here's a peek at the two sweaters I bought though...both from Buffalo Jeans...both super soft, lose, covers my mom butt, and looks good with those cotton leggings I splurged on. HA!

Do you have Costco weakness? How do you get out of there without spending $300+? Is that even a thing? If so...please share your secrets!
