Oops, I went to TJ Maxx again!

My girl and I went shopping today.
I wanted to see if they still had the cute little ladybug costume for her.
Check out the loot!


Pretty beaded pumpkin 10 bucks.
Rooster plate 2.99.
Vanilla Extract 5.99.
The fall cupcake things were 5.99 also.


I have the bunny plates just like these for Easter.


My cupcakes are going to look extra cute with these babies!


They had the ladybug costume for my girl!!
She loves it, shes been walking around carrying it since we got home.
It was 19.99.


Soon as I got home I opened up that vanilla, it smells delicious!
I do want to add that it is NOT "pure" there is water and sugar added! (I saw that when I got home)

I don't think I've shared with yall that my husband and I make our own homemade vanilla extract.
It is super easy and so much fun!
It doesn't stop me from buying pure vanilla when I see it, I love to try  different vanillas.
One day I'll share our vanilla pantry with yall!
(It needs to be organized, hubby's wine making stuff is in there too)

Hope yall have a good day!

Michele,
You got some cute stuff! The ladybug custume is adorable! My 19 year old, Kate dressed up as a ladybug last year for her job, it was really cute! There are photos of her dressed up under Oct 2010. Will be waiting to see your little one in her outfit! I think that it's amazing that you make your own vanilla!
Hope things are going well,

That ladybug costome is so cute! I haven't even started thinking about what my son wants to be for Halloween yet. He is 10 and usually likes to go as something scary (of course). I'll be on the look-out for costumes now. Looks like you had a very successful shopping trip. I've never known anyone to make their own vanilla flavoring before (except maybe Martha Stewart).

Oooh I too want to know how to make vanilla! What a treat that would be! I bet the house smell delicious:*~
I love TJ Maxx also~We have a TJ Maxx and More here close to us and it has a TON of home stuff. I could spend all day in there, but my daughter kind of pouts when she is done in the shoes!

Love your cupcake find!! When are we going to see a tablescape and those delicious cupcakes? All that fall color you have going on? it will be amazing!
