WEDNESDAYS WITH ALDI: I DIDN'T UNDERSTAND THE ASSIGNMENT lol
I saw the jeggings and snagged a couple pair in my size. I lamented that the other colors did *not* come in my size; however, I was determined to make it happen so I snagged a couple of those too lol (Note previous purchase: Aldi Christmas Tree Truck comforter! lol)

So I really really wanted the Star Wars adult PJs in XL & 2XL
I went to the first Aldi and they only had Christmas Vacation in larger sizes so I grabbed an XL, and then one of those cute ceramic gnome lights, and the Christmas car sheets! Then I saw the "secret items" not on the Aldi website: the gnome holiday sign and a gnome tin! Didn't even know what was in the tin but I grabbed it anyway! I figured it had popcorn in it, and I was just gonna make the Hubster eat it lol
The fourth store didn't have SW in XL or 2XL so I grabbed a L out of desperation and hoped it was generous in size. Also I decided how many times can a person say no to the cute gnome blanket, and apparently four was not the number so I grabbed one of those too lol
I get home and post to the Yinzer Aldi group and asked if anybody saw the SW jammies in XL or 2XL only to find out they only went up to size L to begin with lol
The whole time I felt like Hansel and Gretel because each store had one more thing I was looking for...or ended up needing lol 🤣😆
I'm still super bummed I didn't find larger sized Star Wars jammies; however, I was able to score some on Kohl's website for a small fortune-at least twice as much as Aldi's price! Oh well, they're cute and hopefully comfy lol

Well today was completely uneventful lol I was the only one there at 9 am, the gnome mat I wanted was on top, and after a cursory glance of the AOS, I decided I was done shopping and checked out by 9:10 am 😂 Oh I did pick through all the coffee bottles to find six of the vanilla ones. There's my highlight for the day lol

So I bought some of those cute fridge organizer trays yesterday.
Today I figured I'd put some things in them and go about my day. I was gonna have one of those "get $h!t done days" that I always hear people talking about.
But then I looked at my fridge with everything akimbo and no rhyme or reason to it and thought "this must be what the fridge of a psychopath looks like." So I started organizing a little.
I threw a couple things away that were past their prime.
I wiped down the shelves.
While I'm at it I might as well pull the shelves out for a more thorough clean.
Y'all two hours in I got this thing down to the bare bones! I removed every piece I could figure out how to take out!
I'm cleaning crevices that I didn't even know existed.
I got parts soaking, parts in the dishwasher.
My kitchen looks like the fridge exploded with its parts everywhere!
Even Richard Pryor got involved.
I swear I saw God at one point this was such a spiritual experience-I felt this cleaning in my soul!!
I rethought the entire way I was organizing my refrigerator all my life was all wrong and realized I needed more containers! Funny, considering yesterday morning I didn't even know I needed any containers, and now I don't have enough!
I went to my closest Aldi (a mile away lol), and they only had the small ones left.
I drove to my next Aldi (another mile away lol) and they had one of the larger bins left so I snapped that puppy up and treated myself with some Pumpkin Spice Special K-wth you only live once! lol
I had to go into town so I figured I'd stop at their Aldi-and they had three large bins left so I snagged those too. And rewarded myself with some Pumpkin Spice donuts for my trouble lol
At this point I thought "you know what! You need the egg holder too bc that way you can always tell at a glance how many eggs you have because it is clear!" Even though this morning I thought the idea of transferring eggs from the perfectly fine container they come in, to another container was stupid but the Aldi magic had its hooks in me and wasn't letting go until I had that egg holder and of course this store didn't have any!
So back towards home I stopped at my first local Aldi because I remembered they had egg bins from my earlier trip, and I figured now that I had a clean and organized fridge, maybe I should get some respectable groceries for it too. Also, because do I want to be remembered as the weird lady who stopped in twice in one day just to buy fridge organizers?!?
Thankfully, once I was home the Aldi spell was broken and I came back to my senses that no, in fact I did NOT need a fancy clear bin to put my eggs in even if it was cute, so that bin will be released back into the wild when I visit Aldi again.
Welp, this is it y'all. This is what took up the better part of my day lol

- I don't buy candles because I seem to accidentally cause fires lol
- I have all the decorative signs a girl could own (and maybe a few too many if I was being truthful-which I am not! 😂)

I scored some pants-yah! If you would have told me two years ago I was gonna start buying my pants 👖 exclusively from a grocery store I would have laughed 🤣🤣🤣
I also got some food too, not pictured 😂
I started getting these jeggings during the pandemic and haven't turned back. They are my "going out of the house pants" which frankly I don't do very often, and the Aldi leggings are my "inside the house pants" It's quite a system I got going. Follow me for for fashion advice lol
Ok after just trying them on, I gotta report that these are NOT the same size of my other Aldi jeggings that I got last year, and despite trying to squeeze myself into them, it wasn't happening. Too much junk in the trunk lol The ones I got last year had a bit more spandex in them so they were a tad more <ahem> accommodating lol
I'm super sad bc I only have the dark blue and green ones from last year, and they had dummy front pockets whereas these have all 5 real pockets!!
Unfortunately, these are going back : ( I knew I should have grabbed some maternity jeggings (despite not being pregnant) last week when I had a chance! 😂

No judgement, I'm just always amazed what I end up finding when I fall down the rabbit hole that is the internet lol

With names like that, you'd think that if they can withstand fire, they can withstand living in our house.
Cut to I just came back from a three week vacation where I left specific watering instructions for The Hubster. By specific, I mean last minute at the airport as he was dropping me off "oh, water the plants." Now they look like they went through an actual fire lol

It was another 80s campy film. It's an 80s mockumentary about a film studio. It had an all-star cast; however, I couldn't really get through all of it. I just wasn't in the mood for that goofy of a movie, so I just forwarded to RDJ's part lol
