When I Get Diapers and Formula, I Go All Out!!!

There are two things I dread running out of; diapers and formula.  This week, we ran out of both!  You may be able to tell by now that I like to take situations like this and turn them into projects.  I am also going on a diet as of tomorrow (eek) and I needed some healthier options to take to work.  Tonight I went to four different stores, and here's what I got!
