Wonderful Wednesday...Costco Crush

It is Wednesday again. That wonderful day of the week when both of my kids get out of school early! My son is having a friend over for a play date and his sister is insanely jealous. No play date for her today. She has to spend time doing research for a school project. It's tough being a Third Grader.

We will be deeply immersed in research today, so there isn't a lot of time to do fun projects. So instead, I am going to share a secret with you. Are you ready? I have the biggest crush. Seems fitting this time of year. Valentine's Day is just around the corner and all the stores are beginning to show their LOVE.

Should I share or will you tell everyone? My daughter told her friend about a crush in First Grade...and five minutes later EVERYONE knew. Everyone...even the little boy. Embarassing!

Do you promise to keep it a secret? Really? You promise?

Ok, I am head over heels for my new canvas photo from Costco. Costco. The giant warehouse. A giant warehouse created my favorite Christmas present. Well, I created it, but they produced it. And it was FAST! In the middle of the Christmas rush it only took two days for my canvas to be ready. A canvas!

Are you dying to see it? Just look:

Oh how my heart is racing! I know not everyone has Costco in their area (Sorry Mom!), but if you do, give it another look. It is good for so much more than a giant tub of peanut butter or a 6,000 pack of granola bars. Not to mention, I just read a story online about how they stand by their product. They accepted a return of two chairs that were 5 years old! Really? Who does that? A good, solid company. A company that wants to keep my business!

I wish I could say that I was sponsored by Costco, and that I needed to admit I was being paid for all my gushing. No such luck. Although, I might have to admit to my son eating his own weight in samples last time we were there. Does that count as getting paid?

So Costco...if you are out there...I have some ideas for you. Drop me an email. This could be the start of a beautiful relationship.


  1. Funny about your son and the samples, my kids can't get enough either!

    1. I am pretty sure if I bought the food and made it for dinner, he wouldn't want it. But give it to him in a cupcake liner at Costco and he can't get enough!


I absolutely love to get comments! Drop me a note and let me hear what you think. Thanks. -Heidi
