Giddy as a School Girl

I am so happy today. First of all I got my gift from Lydia and it was fantastic. I love it all. I can't wait to try out the recipes. So here is a picture of what I was given:

Some of the cookies were cooked at different times so that's why they all look so different. The really dark brown ones were cooked for who knows how long because forgetfullness runs thick in my blood when it comes to setting the timer for things, but I did remember to set the timer for the other batches and keep the oven turned on. Then I cleaned up the kitchen till it was sparkling and then went grocery shopping/food storage shopping. I went to Smith's for their sale on pasta. I bought 23 bags of pasta, 9 boxes of cereal, one box was a manager's special for only $0.79, 4 gallons of milk, a bag of chicken breasts and a box of Fruit Rollups. My before fresh values savings and coupons savings was $92.85, but I paid $44.98! I couldn't believe it! I was so excited that when I came home I put everything out on the table and took a picture.

What a Great Day!
