Saturday the weather in Aruba was overcast and looked like it was going to rain for most of the day, but Sunday turned out to be great.

It wasn’t crystal clear blue skies all day, but it was nice enough for the bulk of the afternoon that we had a great time as a family at the beach.

Sun and fun.

After the beach, we came home and jumped in the pool to get all the sand off.

There’s usually a very strong wind here, about 25mph. But the past few days, we’ve had 45mph+ winds and sand blows into our hair, scalp, and every crack and crevice. We’re well-exfoliated, everywhere.

In other matters, I ventured into a small grocery store that was open Sunday evening because we needed some lettuce, but they were sold out.

They were also sold out of chocolate chips. The horrors.

And they were sold out of ground coffee, other than decaf Folgers at $15 dollars for a can. I took a pass on decaf Folgers (what would be the point of that?) so will be venturing out to a larger grocery store on Monday for lettuce, chocolate, and coffee since those are clearly priorities in life.

The guy ahead of me at the grocery store, however, was freaking out, and I do mean throwing a total freakout, because both that grocery store and apparently a couple others he had tried were sold out of Coors Light. There was a full supply of Bud Light, Miller Lite, Amstel Light, Heineken and zillion other beers, but no Coors Light, and apparently to him, that was worse than a grocery store being out of lettuce, chocolate chips, or coffee.

Speaking of chocolate, I could really go for some right now. Either a fudgy brownie with extra thick frosting and chocolate cookies stuffed into it

Or chocolate cookies with chocolate candy stuffed into them

How was your weekend?

Has your grocery store been sold out of anything or multiple trips anywhere necessary to get your essentials?

I am the queen of soldout, disappearing, discontinued, and out of stock products, but before we left for this trip, I went to Target to pick up a couple swimsuits for Skylar and they were basically sold out of kids swimsuits in her size in late July. But had a full supply of fall clothes in, sweater, boots and all. Super practical, indeed.

  1. Looks beautiful! If the store ran out of kale, nut butters, and coconut, I would have a complete meltdown like that man!
