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....

Back from Vacation; From Cusco to Costco

With the Christmas season starting, it's a great time to find new products at Costco!  And we're getting the gang back together to start the blog back up.

I didn't realize that Addicted to Costco hadn't been posting, which is such a loss, I'm not sure what's up with Kimberly, and I will try to find out.

I was happy to see Costco Wine Blog is still going strong, as is Costcotuu.

The photo explains my vacation a bit; instead of being at Costco, I've been as Cusco!  

On the right is my college roommate, Sam, Jacques didn't make this trip.
