Today’s post is all about a fun event coming up for the military community, so check it out for details about where, when, and what’s involved! Big thanks to Premier Protein at Costco for sponsoring this post.
It’s thrilling to me that such a large chunk of the Whimsical September audience has a military affiliation, so this post today is for you!
Costco Military Hour
This Saturday, March 24th, Costco will open at 0800 for the military community to shop, eat breakfast (a.k.a. load up on tons and tons of samples, haha!), watch product demos, and more. Stores will open to the general public at 0900 like usual, but for that first hour, doors will only be opened for Costco members with a military affiliation (currently serving members, veterans, and family members).
Bonus! The first 100 attendees at each of the 117 participating locations will walk away with big grab bags full of swag! Yessss!
No fighting crowds = check
Free food = check
Potential swag bag = check
This is my kind of shopping!
Remember, you must be a Costco member to take advantage of this fun Saturday morning event they’re offering.

Premier Protein at Costco
And finally, while you’re shopping this Saturday, may I suggest you scoop up some Premier Protein at Costco? YUM (yum yum yum). Let me tell you why…
- Premier Protein at Costco is so tasty. We have the chocolate, vanilla, and caramel flavors stocked in our fridge, and they’re all excellent. (Yes, even the caramel. If you like the taste of caramel, you will like these shakes. It tastes like dessert!)
- The vanilla flavor is an excellent coffee creamer. My friend Michelle suggested this months ago, and she was so right!
- The amount of protein in the Premier Protein at Costco is SHOCKING. I remember when Jamie first looked at one in my parent’s fridge (before we started getting them ourselves), he was FLOORED. 30g of protein, 1g of sugar (what?!), and 160 calories. Exceptional.
- They’re premade (as seen in its packaging in the picture below) and ready to drink at home or on the go! No mixing, measuring, or blending.
- Why buy Premier Protein at Costco? Because Costco is the only retailer who stocks Hormone FREE Premier Shakes.
What do you love about Costco vs. other similar stores?

PS: Training for a marathon? Here’s my husband Boston Marathon training plan from 2014.
Hi! I’m Erica, and I absolutely adore sharing my life on this website with you! I come here almost daily to blab about all of the things related to being a regular wife and mother in today’s ever-evolving society. I share about our new home, what’s on our kitchen table, what we’re hanging in our closets, where we’re traveling to next, my crazy 5 a.m. work outs, how I make time for girlfriends, our faith, and much more. We always have a lot of balls in the air and somewhat thrive on the chaos. I believe in the power of story-telling as a form of inspiration and entertainment, so I’m here to do both! I was born and raised in north Alabama and recently re-planted roots here again after my husband transitioned out of the Army (he is now in the Reserve and it’s going so well!) I’m a super proud mom to two little girls (ages 5 and 2) who seem to be the stars of the show around here (for good reason – they’re pretty great!) I’m so glad you found me and are here reading! I hope we can get to know each other here on the blog as well as Facebook and/or Instagram. xoxo
