Do you need a new fridge? Yes, you do.

First things first, guess who else started school in the family?  Maggie is an official preschooler now.  Boy, is she ever excited about going to school.  She absolutely loves it!
 Joey wanted to get in on the picture taking action as well.  What a stinker--almost 2 and into EVERYTHING!  And I mean EVERYTHING.  More to come on that in a few weeks for his birthday post.
 Now on to the highlight of my day.  Have you ever bought a large purchase and wondered if you made the right decision?  Well, I do all the time, but I have to say I am in love with fridge.  It is the most awesome appliance ever made.  It even has a snack drawer for the kids so they don't sit around with the fridge open deciding what they want.  Awesome.  Before we moved here we had a teeny tiny fridge, more of a large cooler than an appliance.  When we picked out our fridge I wanted a large one--not like half my kitchen $10K large, but large.  I got this one and have never had to cram or Tetris things into my fridge.  Anyway, So Eric is in charge of getting the breakfast foods for the fathers and sons campout this weekend.  He had quite a large list of things he needed to buy in bulk.  So off I went to Costco.  Let it be known I have a love/hate relationship with Costco.  It is a great place to get deals on all the things you need, from socks to BBQs to digital cameras.  However, who has ever walked out of Costco with nothing but the things on their list?  I for one, have never.  I am good about buying things I will use, but inevitably still purchase more than I went in for.  Sometimes I see people there leaving with only one container of milk and a pack of apples.  Huh?  A feat of strength of will-power I will never have.  Anyway, back to my story.  So I had the task of getting all the supplies for the campout--lots of milk, juice, eggs, sausauge, etc. etc. etc.  By the time I was done I felt like the Duggars (19 Kids and Counting).  I managed to get it in car, home and then I wondered how in the world I was going to fit it all into my fridge!  But I have to say after moving a few mostly empty bottles of salad dressing, a few other things I was able to fit it ALL in!  Can you believe it?  17, count them, SEVENTEEN gallons of milk/juice, 72 eggs, fruit, veggies, and sauces galore all fit into my fridge and the door still shuts smoothly!  I fell in love with my fridge all over again.  Yes, the other stuff is a bit crammed in, but it still all fits!  It. is. awesome.  So I ask you, do you need a new fridge?
Yes, you do.
