What's Up Wednesday!

I hope you had a great Labor Day weekend! 
Mine was wonderful.  For the first time in years I had both my daughters, my son in law, grandson and my MOM all together for a family dinner! 
Of course we forgot photos!  
Still the time together was amazing. Since Mom has moved here, we will now have more of these times all together.  
Tiger and I had another play date!  He does love his chocolate milk!

Last week I had two dentist appointments, got my eyes checked and I still need to schedule a general check up.  Seems like I've ignored my self for so long now but I'm trying to catch up! 
Big news here is this new Kroger Marketplace
The largest Kroger in Georgia just opened last week a couple of miles from me.  I waited until yesterday to check it out!
Huge produce department!


 A huge home decor dept...this is just a tiny portion of it....kitchen, dishes, pots & pans, small appliances, towels, rugs and shower curtains!
(I'm kinda in love with the cute owl one)
Seasonal decor...yes...about 3 aisles of it!
(all these owls were so cute...Kathe don't you love them all)
Of course they have a great Fresh Meals to go and a Delicatessen...but you can also buy your girl an engagement ring between buying that frozen pizza and beer!  I had my watch with me and they put a new battery in it for free!  Nice!

Don't all grocery stores sell clothes and shoes? 
REALLY, they had some nice stuff!
So this store is really like a WalMart!
I must say I had fun! 
I'm so easily entertained!

That's it for this Wednesday!

Wishing you JOY

Linda

Linda that is one huge Kroger - I almost feel like Wal Marts are too big - you have to start early in the day! It looked nice though.

Kathe said...

Oh my goodness Linda! That store is amazing! And yes, love the owls :-) So funny, when we were shopping w/ my MIL over the weekend she kept pointing them out to me. I guess it's not a secret, I love owls lol!

I would love to have a superstore like that here. Reading blogs, the ladies would mention that they bought their dishes at Kroger's. Maybe one day I will be able to check them out. Seeing seasonal displays like that puts me in the mood for decorating.

I now you are enjoying your family time! There are some of the K. super stores around here, but not like that.

Glenda/MidSouth said...

That is suppose to be know not now - spell check gets on my nerves. :(

How nice that you all got to get together. I am loving that owl shower curtain, too. Hope you have a great rest of the week!

Hugs, Dianne

I love out Kroeger, I can wander the isles for hours.
Sounds like you had a great get together with your family...finally! I also have put off the dr. thing too long...ack.

Betsy@My Salvaged Treasures said...

I'm sure you all had the best time together, sound like such a fun holiday treat for all of you. I don't think we have Kroger stores out here, at least not in this area. Do they have a vintage mall in there too?

Lynn@Happier Than a Pig in Mud said...

Sounds like you had a great holiday weekend Linda! What a fun new store, love the three isles of seasonal-enjoy:@)

Linda, I am so happy that you are getting to spend more time all together. That is wonderful, and I know how happy this must make you. That Tiger is so cute and really growing, and how special that your mom gets to enjoy him, too! :-)

Kroger (the IPad tried to spell it ROGER, LOL) is a good chain. I guess they are looking at Whole Foods who sells Tom's shoes and some organic clothing. I was wondering when the grocery chains would start this. It will be interesting to see how well it goes.

They really do have CUTE dishes and things. I bought a plaid bowl there which accidentally got broken, but I found another in a slightly smaller size. I was out of state when I found it, and I was blessed to find the other before we left! ;-)

What a huge Kroger! I don't think we have anything like that here.

Jane and Chris said...

I guess that's what they mean by 'one stop' shopping!

um, why can't i have a kroger in my life??? so glad you are able to spend such quality time with your family close by.

Nellie said...

I always forget to take pictures of family events! I'm so busy either hosting or joining in that pictures are far from my mind!

We have a couple of Kroger stores here just like your new one. I am not a Kroger shopper, though, so I am rarely in either of them.

Looks like you can do everything at that store! One stop shopping!
It is very nice to have family close by!

How great you had such a fun family event! I love Kroger and wish we had one of those! Our closest is an hour away, and an older store. Sweet store!

Sherry@Back2Vintage said...

So glad that you had your whole family together on Labor Day. Photos are great....memories are priceless! I love our local Kroger store. Lucky you to have one close by!

I went to a Kroger like this in Columbus OH, I could not believe what they had inside, it was a great store. Glad you had a great Labor Day.

Hi Linda, How sweet to have all of your family there! My oldest daughter was in town and we had such a sweet visit. This small town girl is jealous of your new Kroger :) Blessings, Cecilia

Vicky Hunt said...

There's that sweet little Tiger! That store is awesome...I don't think we have Kroger's here. I wish we did though! So happy your family was able to all get together under one roof! Have a blessed Friday my friend.

Hugs, Vicky

Susan said...

Oooooo, looks like a nice new store, Linda.

So happy just about all your family is together now. Happy times are so precious and memorable.

Thanks, too, for all your visits. Susan

Patti said...

What a joy to have your whole family together! I am so happy for you.

Can't believe how big Tiger has gotten. Wasn't he just a baby last month?

My mom used to shop at Kroger, when I was growing up. I haven't been in one for a couple decades, as because even when we lived in Georgia, I was a Publix shopper. New stores are always fun, though.

Happy weekend,
Patti

Jo-Anne Meadows said...

That is one big ass store

Linda,
Thanks so much for stopping by!!

We do not have any of these stores near us in a 3 state area!! I sure wish we did though!!

Hugs,
Deb

Lady Linda said...

Hi Linda, oh your little Tiger is just so cute. Your Kroger store is lovely. Our Fred Meyer stores here are owned by Kroger. I do most of my shopping with them.

mrs. c said...

SO glad that most your family is so close! I am sooooo jealous of your Kroger!!!!! They took them out of Chattanooga and it was one of my favorite places to shop! I do love my Aldi but it looks NOTHING like that fabulous Kroger! All is well with us, school is going and going and going! Hubby is gret , he loves to go picking and that what we seem to do each weekend. My son loves LA, what is this about our kids and the west coast???? Hope all is well with you and I hope to see you soon! Kudos on going to the dr., dentist....I know it's hard but it is necessary for us to take care of ourselves so we can be around longer for those that love us!!!! Happy Weekend to you!

That Kroger looks huge! Tiger is a doll! Nice you get to spend time with family :)

Consider It All Joy said...

What JOY to have your family together for a holiday meal and hang out time! It is SO important and so very special! We don't have Kroger's here, I suppose Fry's Marketplace is the closest we have but not clothing or shoes and NO jewelry! I love new places, So Clean!! Blessings, Cindy

Ivy and Elephants said...

So glad you got the whole family together, I'm sure it was a treat! The store has everything, I'd get lost for sure!
Hugs,
Patti

For some reason Kroger decided to remove the home goods from our store and fill it with clothes instead. I don't know one person who is happy about that so we will see how it works out. I for one don't see myself buying a lot of clothes along side my groceries. xo Laura

Vickie @ Ranger 911 said...

It really is special to have your entire family together, isn't it? I've never been to a Kroger's. I know we don't have any in northern MN, but we don't have much of anything up here!

bj said...

How fun to get such a great store close to you.
Tiger...oh, my...he is so growing fast. Guess it's the chocolate milk.hahhaa....he is so good looking.

Art and Sand said...

How fun to have all of the family together. I am sure your mother is loving getting to know Tiger better.
