4/3 trip to harris teeter

the sun was shining for the first time in DAYS!
as i drove to HT, i saw a mom going back into her house, two small kids anxiously waiting at the door to greet her. i remember those days when my kids just couldn't wait to get their hands on me. i miss those days.
then i passed an old VW van, dog hanging out the window. smile.
my harris teeter trip wasn't awesome pricewise. after triples and saving on lots of boxes and cans of stuff, i longed for fresh fruits and veggies. so i got spagetti squash, grape tomatoes, strawberries, baby bok choy, cabbage, cucumbers, zucchini, sweet potatoes, bananas, and onions.
some were on sale, but there's just not many coupons for the really good stuff.
