Guest Post: Mykel-- "The Wonderful World of Costco"

So, I'm an invalid.  Because of this, I've decided to pretend like I'm a famous blogger or something and have guest posts...and by guest posts, I mostly just mean my family.  To start, we have my awesome sister-in-law, Mykel!  She's been married to my hot brother for almost two years (Holy cow! I can't believe it's been that long already!)

Anyway, here's just a little somethin' she just whipped up for me.  Thanks, Mykel!

My mother visited this week. And with her visit came that small golden ticket: Her Costco membership. You see, Costco is a Wonderland and a main attraction anytime someone visits us with a membership. You walk in those magic gates, flash your membership (like you're a part of some special VIP club), and a maze of big bulk items beckon you. It's very much like a treasure hunt really. You wind through the maze, and the employees are handing out free food! Samples! Plus, you can find anything - from an extra large container of basil to a huge salmon fillet to an even bigger television to enormous lawn furniture, and best of all the amazing plastic wrap with a cutter (which also is enormous). Oh, and I got to fill up with discount gas! Thank you Costco and thank you mom. The only problem with Costco is they know they're a wonderland so they make you pay to be a member because they know everyone wants to come...lame. Someday I'll have one of those golden memberships - probably about the same time as I have a washer and dryer :)
