Olay Regenerist at Costco with Finally More Serious SPF

Ever since I signed a contract with my dermatologist saying I would always use a moisturizer with 50 SPF in the summer and 30 SPF in the winter, I haven't been able to use my favorite moisturizer, the Olay Total Effects that I wrote about before.  Costco has had no suitable substitute.

So I was thrilled a couple weeks ago, when my local West Nashville Costco stocked the Olay Regenerist 30 SPF.  I'm going to ignore that the price tag ended in 7, which usually means the product is on its way out and on sale. I hope that this product is here for the long term.

I've been using the Olay Regenerist SPF 30 for a couple weeks, and I like it and can't tell a difference from the Olay Regenerist 50 SPF that I was using.

Halloween Costumes at Costco

Last year, my granddaughter changed her mind about what she wanted to be for Halloween.  My daughter-in-law had purchased last year's costume from an on-line retailer, and returning it was not practical.

This year, my granddaughter's costume came from Costco.  By purchasing from Costco, the outfit can be returned at the last minute.  But my granddaughter hasn't wavered in her choice.

Her older sister is going as Alice....

Grandpa's Birthday Bash

I'm glad I didn't start buying the Costco Fleming's gift cards in the summer.  I was going to buy $100 at a time and work my way up to the circa $800 that a dinner at Flemings would have cost.  

We did Flemings two years ago, and I wrote in the blog about what a great decision that was.  This year, instead, at Grandpa's request, we opted for staying home and getting pizza.  (The Fleming's gift cards are no longer in my store but still available from Costco on-line.)

We used a party room in Grandpa's apartment building, bought disposable plates, glasses, tablecloths, and silverware from Costco.  The Asti and Pinot Noir wines and Yuengling beer came from Costco. Probably should have gotten the pepperoni pizzas there, too.  

Here's Bob (Jacques) with some of the party ware:

Of course, I have plenty of paper goods left over.  The wine and beer seem to be gone....
