Are We Crazy for Catering Our Own Welcome Dinner and Reception?

Phew! Matt and I just completed Trek #1 of 3 to procure food for our Welcome Picnic and the reception.

Wow. We are truly in the thick of this DIY process!

I find it exhilarating (kind of like throwing a dinner party). And exhausting (kind of like throwing a dinner party).

We shopped at Sam's Club first and found all sorts of bargains. We have stacks and stacks of food (see photo above).

Now we're off to King Sooper's. What we don't feel comfortable buying there (like sandwich meat for the Make-Your-Own-Sandwich Bar) we'll get at Whole Foods.

My calculations show that we have $900 for Friday and Saturday food. We spent $400 at Sam's Club. I'm crossing my fingers that we're going to make our $2000 budget!

The next two stores are more expensive...
