Some friends and close family were able to enjoy an awesome Nutella spread brunch bar. Here's what I had:

Whole Wheat English Muffins
Blueberry Waffles

I laid out a toaster in case guests wanted to toast their english muffins and bagels. Everyone loved that they were able to mix and match their favorite foods with the nutella. Most of my guests had never tried the Nutella spread before so it was fun to see what they thought of it. They loved that their guest bags were filled with a sample for them to take home with them to enjoy again.

Here are the guest bags all laid out for the guests:

My Walgreens Trip - Lots of Clearance Toys!

I decided to browse the toy isle at my local Walgreens the other weekend. I'm glad I did because select toys were clearanced down to just $1.99 from $6.99!  I got all five toys you see above for under $10. I love a good toy deal! I'm sure every Walgreens is different but it's worth looking to see if your local Walgreens is marking down select toys.

I looked at my receipt and it said I saved $27.99!
