The Shopping Hunt...

There's a lesson in this I just know there is!

Have you ever been shopping with your husband?
Who hasn't?!
Did you really enjoy the experience or does it sometimes feel 
like you are indeed hunting with the game warden?

There has been many times, when we were a much younger couple, 
(before our kids came along) we would actually enjoy shopping together. 
We got to take our time and look for the best deals, 
even though it wasn't so much for saving those dimes at the time.

I remember the one time I sent my hubby to the store by himself, 
he came home with a 5 pound can of peas!
Ick!  Canned peas are mushy and just plain icky!

I remember looking at him and saying
 "what am I suppose to do with this?"
He tells me "It was a really good deal!"
I held onto that can for years... 
It was always a great conversational subject with all our friends!

And Now that we have kids... well, that's for another time!
Just kidding....
If I go shopping with my hubby now (with kids) it's get in,
 look for the best dime saving deal and hurry to get out.
It's like you never even got to look at anything 
that you thought you might wanted to look at.
Rush, rush, rush!

Plus, if your kids stay in the store for too long they 
start to get the "wanty bug" and then your dime saving 
becomes way outta your price range.

The joys of a shopping mama.....

To be honest with you friends,
I'm not much for the whole shopping 
experience anymore either, quite frankly.
It was fun being a newlywed and a new mama,
But, now it's just seems to be that daunting chore....

Oh My...
I think I have turned into the game warden now!! HA!

I had a point this this post, 
but I'm not really sure where I was going with it.

I just thought the photo was hilarious and maybe 
we all just needed a good laugh today!

Yep, that's what it was!

Did I make you laugh?
Great... I've done my good deed for the day!

Take time to be a little silly!

I know where you're coming from. I really don't enjoy shopping for anything with my hubby, 1.he gives out to soon. 2.he can't keep up with me. 3. I like to "just look" he doesn't. Maybe I'm the "game Warden" too. LOL

Good Morning, This was so cute, And the can of peas is really funny. Now, maybe you could of made pea soup LOL!
I do not care to go shopping much anymore myself. But the quote was very funny, and I did get a good laugh from it. So you have done your good deed for the day!
Happy Valentine's Day and Happy Birthday to the sweetest gal I know! Love, Roxy

Hi Amy! PS I LOVE pea soup!!

I really loved following your stories of shopping with your husband and family. It's something we all do, and some love it and some despise it. And to some, it's a necessary evil!

I do not like shopping for groceries with my husband. I am a list shopper. If I need apples, I get apples. My husband stands in front of the apples and compared prices, apples, dents and bruises...while I do a slow burn in the corner by the celery. We have a deal now. He shops for groceries, and calls me if he has a question. Much better.

Is it your birthday?? Happiest Birthday my dear Game Warden!! I hope you can go out and shop uninterrupted for 20 minutes. Does that seem do-able? Enjoy your special day, my special friend :)

that's a great sign, hee hee. my husband sometimes comes home with some really good deals too! :)

Marie said...

Aww Happy Birthday Amy!

wishing you a very cozy and sweet to you dear friend!!

Yes, I look at shopping as a chore but sometimes this chore does bring rewards that can't be beat.

Shopping with my hubby is always different then shopping all by myself. He is a sucker for anything on sale which is cute. I think I have been blessed beyond belief when I can go shopping without the kids lol!
That is a vacation ha ha ha!

Love you!

You did make me laugh, Amy :) You know, when my husband goes shopping with me he loves to look for deals too, but he ends up stocking up on those deals and spending way more money than we intended. It makes me laugh and it's always fun :)

Hugs to you, sweet friend!

I'm a fan of internet shopping as I don't need to drive the car anywhere, find a park, mingle with crowds, carry heavy bags and I do all my shopping in my PJs !! My husband only has to answer the door when the parcel arrives:))

Ps I certainly wouldn't take hubby clothes shopping as he triangle dislikes it:)))

Have a lovely weekend

Ohhh Happy Birthday beautiful Amy!!! I hope your day was lovely. You are such a treasure!

I laughed so hard when I saw the title of your post. On a general basis, I do not like to shop with Benjamin. But, on many occasions when he is not in a hurry, he will be very generous and treat us while we shop for groceries. Because of those special times, I tend to WANT him to come hehehehe.

I love you sweet friend!!

I don't know why I am just now seeing this post… It somehow slipped on by; anyhow, so cute. I remember this plaque, and have always gotten a great chuckle out of it. It really does feel that way. I got a good laugh at Barry and the can of cute and funny. I have never really cared for canned peas, as you say too mushy; ha but a good deal, well what good man could pass it up? I am like you, I don't really enjoy shopping any more. I used to, oh well, there are worse things in life. Love ya Amy, look forward to seeing you soon.

This is a funny sign and I have not seen this one before.
I hate going to the store with my husband. He stops every few feet and says, "hey, look at this!" It takes forever to just pick up a few things!!!!!
I signed on to follow your blog. Look forward to visiting.
