Have you ever made a random decision three years in advance? Ha! I do!
My daughter wanted to go see what was left at the closing Sam’s Club. Everything went 50% off last Wednesday, so I didn’t really expect there to be much left. I warned her that there might not be anything left. But she was up for the trip, so we went.
There were lots of tubs of frosting from the bakery, books, a few clothes, various printer cartridges, and a few other random things. Behind the 5 gallon buckets of frosting were bags of the plastic cupcake toppers that bakeries use. It didn’t really spark my interest, but I looked. They had a lot of graduation toppers: graduation star rings, owls with graduation hats, and just the word “Grad” on them. It was $5 for a bag with 144 pieces. Hmmm.
So, boom, just like that, I decided we will be making graduation open house cupcakes ourselves . . . for all four children. Each child will get to have up to 144 cupcakes at their open house. Am I ok with this number? It seems like plenty to me. I don’t know though, we haven’t done an open house. Feedback is appreciated!
Tonight I am thankful for finding a few more good deals at our closing Sam’s Club. I’ll remember this day for many more years to come as my kiddos graduate and we decorate their cupcakes! Now all I have to do is not lose them between now and then!
