Friend Over For The Weekend - Jenny

Hey Odelma readers!

This is Jenny visiting for the day over from my blog, the Gilberts (original, I know)! I was so excited when Mattie asked me over the weekend that I decided to do something that I've never done before.  I mainly blog about everyday things that me and my husband do, DIY projects I create, other blogs I enjoy, fun things I find online, and occasionally my design work that I do as a side gig (jen & ink).  However, for this post, I thought it'd be fun to give away a freebie

This freebie stemmed from me and my husband's grocery shopping habits.  We both can't stand the grocery store and try to spend the smallest amount of time there possible. Before we shop, I create my list (which is usually the things needed for cooking and meals) and Joel creates his list (which usually consists of a large stash of mountain dew, chips, an the occasional honey bun).

Before we start, we make sure our lists are balanced, tear the sheet in half, and then race to see who finishes first.  Sometimes we make it interesting with a foot rub for the winner--but to us, just getting in and out of the store quickly is plenty of a reward!

To model this new freebie, we used it in our last shopping trip (turns out it's much better than a ripped piece of loose leaf we normally use):

Sometimes I see him wandering around lost trying to find something--but in this case, he was wandering around and dancing as he found what he was looking for.

 I can never pass this fridge where the side dips in without making faces--it never gets old.

After I finished my list, I found him still shopping, which meant...


Loser.  :( whomp. whomp. 

Time spent in grocery store: 20 minutes!

And no list is complete without returning your grocery cart to make the workers' jobs a little easier.

 So if you are anything like us, then I hope you'll enjoy this download!  I also included a generic one too if you prefer shopping alone--which is cool too. :)  Just open the link, go to "file" and download the pdf, print out the page you want, and follow the crop marks to cut.  You can even go one step further and make it into a pad if you get the urge.  Enjoy!

Thanks again for letting me stop by!  It's no secret that I'm a big, big fan of Odelma, but I'm an even bigger fan of Mattie--so it was my pleasure!  :)

I love this! If only I could get my shopping trips down to 20 mins. My current shopping trips take 2 hrs, but I take the boys, so I think 20 mins. is kinda out of the question.
