The Taste of Home // Getting my German Groceries here in the USA!

I came back from my trip to Europe a little over two weeks ago, and realized I forgot to do one major thing: more shopping! In my latest YouTube video I shared what I actually brought:


But I sure forgot to hit the grocery store to buy some Knorr and Maggi seasonings, and probably more Lebkuchen, Domino Steine, Marzipan Kartoffeln, and all the other German Christmas goodies. Thank goodness I can now find most of the things right here in the USA, and I can even go shopping at my local World Market! I found so much online, I sure have to plan a visit this weekend.

Last Minute Halloween Costume Ideas under $40

Ooops, Halloween is just a few days away - and I bet you don't have your costume yet! I had to get something put together within MINUTES yesterday, since I was named a judge in a costume contest at our annual "Boo at the Pool" about 2 hours before the event started. So I rushed into Walmart since I only had about 45 minutes after work to find something AND put it on before heading to the pool.

I have spent $38 on the veil, cape, tutu and stockings. If I had more time I would have sure checked out Amazon. They have an awesome selection and thanks to Amazon Prime, the costume would have been here in no time. Oh well. Maybe I will get another costume for our office Halloween on the 31st.

Long story short - I don't want YOU to spend $40 on mediocre things that you randomly put together, so here is a list of pretty awesome costumes. ALL under $40.
