In my wallet…

Today, I was in and out of my wallet several times.

I had lunch in the Union inbetween writing sessions. (BTW, I wrote 11 pages for my paper! Yup…almost done in one day!)

I went to Kohls to buy Tyler underwear. Yup, I’m officially a wife now. I run errands to buy underwear for boys. It felt weird.

Then, something interesting happened at Target. I went to Target for a new pillow (my neck has been killing me lately) and when digging in my wallet, a shiny new penny caught my eye. Then it REALLY caught my eye.
There was a new penny with ^this on the back. I didn’t know we got new pennies. Did anyone? I googled and found out there are 5 new pennies in circulation, 4 released in 2009 looking like this:
Apparently, the 4 pennies released in 2009 chronicled Lincoln’s life (it IS his penny after all)…and the new 2010 features a union shield. “The 13 vertical stripes of the shield represent the states joined in one compact union to support the federal government, represented by the horizontal bar above. The horizontal bar features the inscription E PLURIBUS UNUM—”out of many, one”—while the inscription UNITED STATES OF AMERICA is depicted along the upper rim of the coin. The union shield, which dates back to the 1780s, was used widely during the Civil War. “

Why haven’t I noticed any of the 4 pennies? I only noticed the union shield one today. Look in your wallet….did you know we had new pennies?
