S-H-O-P-P-I-N-G. We're shopping.

I am such a perfectionist I hate myself sometimes. I am trying to organize this party ahead of time to avoid headaches. I put all the centerpieces, favors, etc for the tables into bags so I can just unload as soon as I get there. At this point I realized, holy crap. I go to Trader Joe's a lot.

It is our main place for food shopping. However today, I am in the middle of a BAKING EXTRAVAGANZA. Of which I'm sure I will take pictures and show you soon. Therefore, I can't make my weekly run to TJ's to make sure my kids are well fed. So, the responsibility lies with...the Husband. *cue scary music* My husband has not been to the market in years. Therefore, I...uh..draw maps. Of the market. Yes, I am lame, but hey, I'm also a designer. I can't help myself. At least this way I get exactly what I want.

*click for big-ness*

OMG! that's too funny - my husband is the grocery shopper (at COSTCO) - he only has problems if he has to buy my "feminine" products at safeway - haha!

Hilarious! Reminds me of the time my stepdad went shopping, only to come back and tell my Mom that he got everything on the list, but vinegar. He'd gone to a big, major supermarket, but according to him, they didn't see vinegar. And I'm talking regular white vinegar! He still does all of the grocery shopping all these years later, but has gotten better at it.

I usually don't let Hank do the grocery shopping (especially with the kids) because then our bill is double the normal amount!

And I know you're a baking purist and all, but have you tried Trader Joe's Matcha Green Tea Baking Mix?! Not bad. . .

I think you may know that I am all sad and shit about the lack of Trader Joe's here in Western NY, but that picture of the bagged romaine lettuce you drew for you husband has made me forget all about my melancholy - because I am still laughing!

Maps! Maybe THAT'S what I should do for The Husband. Instead I get 5 or 6 or 10 phone calls from the store...

haha.. that made my day. Perhaps you could market these as forms for the rest of us who also suffer from husband-can't-shop-itis. OOOH YES! A new product for the online store and I'll be the first one to buy it!
