The carrots

Sorry, I'm just getting this posted. It's been a bit of a busy weekend, but finally, here is the story behind the carrots from this post. Last Monday, Egan and I went to Sam's to pick up a few things. There were a few things on my list that I wouldn't normally have gotten in bulk at Sams, but I decided that since I had Egan and I wanted to get some frozen stuff at Sams I didn't want to make a trip to the grocery store as well. Anyway, on my list were carrots, and the only size bag that they had was a 5 pound bag. I was hesitant to get it, but after doing the math, it was almost half the price per pound as the carrots are at the regular grocery store, so I decided that even if we didn't finish all 5 pounds, we might get close, so it was worth it. The story doesn't end here. Blake decided that he would go by the grocery store on his way home from church Monday night and surprise me with some ice cream, and while he was there, he decided that he's pick up some carrots... 2 lbs of them. He didn't know I had gotten carrots earlier in the day, and I didn't know he was going to the store or that he was going to get carrots, so that is how we ended up with an unusual number of carrots in our house... yes, it was 7 lbs total. What are we going to do with SEVEN pounds of carrots?
So, the winner... is Jessica. Shall we say you win a bag of carrots? We still have lots.


  1. Wow, I've missed so much! Just now getting to "blog catch-up" and what an eventful few weeks you've had!

    Too funny about the carrots - steve and I have done that one too many times with milk...

    I am SO GLAD your sweet little guy is OK! I'm sure that was one scary day.

    He gets cuter by the minute :)

  2. I was reading a comment you left on another blog about Macs...I bought one several months ago and cannot seem to get started on it...I think I am just intimidated by it...and feel bad that it is just sitting in the box....Where do I start? Any tips??
