GCC Shopping Round Up

I have to admit, being self employed (both my husband and I) has it's perks. I love going to work in my jammies at 10pm. I love that my hubby has a schedule flexible enough to help me get kids to practices, lessons and classes and he gets to be at every meeting, game, and recital. I love that if we get a bee in our bonnet and decide to load up the car and head to the beach for a few days we don't have to ask our boss for time off.

But what I dislike the most is the fact that, for my kind of self employment, I have to wait for the people that hired me to actually pay me. I don't get to count on getting paid every Friday or that on the 1st and 15th of every month my paycheck will magically appear. I miss that part just a little bit. Especially this week. Which is why I had to grocery shop on a different day. But the good news is I finally got to shop. So here's what I gathered this week.
