*Does a weird little happy dance*
Seriously though, who doesn’t like going to the grocery store and getting more food!? There a whole world of possibility, new things to try, and endless combinations of things that you can make into delicious meals and snacks! Maybe I’m just a little overenthusiastic because I’m a runner, and being a runner has really made me stop and think about what I’m eating and what it’s doing for my body. Either way, I really do enjoy food shopping!
Luke and I actually did a lot more than just food shopping though. We did a lot of running around today. We left the house around 9 am, and aside from a quick stop to drop off our groceries, we didn’t get back home until 4 pm. Told you we did a lot!
The first stop we made today was Tractor Supply. We needed dog food and we’ve found that it’s usually cheaper there. So we got that, then spent almost 45 minutes browsing through the store. Yeah, we really like Tractor Supply and surprisingly enough we didn’t end up picking up anything else during our perusing of the store. Until we saw that seeds were 25% off that is. That was when we went a little bit crazy and ended up buying a bunch of seed packets. But now we’ve almost got everything we want to grow in the garden this year, so that’s pretty exciting! I think all we need plant/seed wise now is tomatoes, and we usually just buy those plants pre started because it’s a lot easier that way. I’m starting to get super excited about getting this garden going!
After we finally left Tractor Supply we made our way to Aldi to get our groceries for the next two weeks. Luckily Aldi is like a two minute drive from Tractor Supply so it didn’t take very long to get there, and we didn’t really spend much time there because we got the same old stuff we usually get. I guess that’s not too exciting, especially since I was literally just talking about all the endless possibilities of grocery shopping, but hey, we know what we like/need and it got us in and out of there pretty fast. 🙂
Once we got all of our groceries packed into the car we drove home, unloaded/put away all of our stuff, hopped back into the car and drove 30 minutes to Barnes and Noble. Now, we didn’t exactly need to go to a book store, but I wanted to see if they had any exciting gardening/DIY books. Unfortunately they did not, so I ended up with a book about running instead. Go figure, right? 😉 I’m not complaining though, I’ve been wanting to read How Bad Do You Want It by Matt Fitzgerald for a while now, but ever other time I’ve gone to Barnes and Noble they didn’t have it. Kinda weird I guess, but I’m glad I finally got my hands on a copy. 🙂
After Barns and Noble we decided that we needed to go somewhere for lunch, because we were both starving. I don’t think either of us really ate anything aside from a granola bar and a Naked fruit juice in the morning, and by the time we got done at the book store it was a little bit past 1 pm. Luke enthusiastically suggested going to a Mexican restaurant that he wanted to try. Meh, I’m not exactly a fan of Mexican food and since Luke knows that we don’t often get it, so I figured we should probably go this time. It was pretty good though, so I can’t complain.
After lunch we went to petsmart to get crickets for our gecko, Walmart for fly tape (which they did not have), the bank to cash a few checks and pay some stuff, Price Chopper for fly tape (which they also did not have), Target for fly tape (they didn’t have it either. WTF?!? That’s when we gave up our quest for fly tape and decided to just live with the flies), then back to Tractor Supply because we forgot to get rabbit food while we were there the first time. Oh man, all that running around really wears a person out!
Speaking of running. I didn’t get a run in today. I had planned on getting up early and doing 4 miles before all of our shopping adventures, but when my alarm went off at 5:30 this morning I was like “nope”, turned it off, and went right back to sleep. I suppose I could have run when we finally got home, but then that would have meant that I was going to attempt to run 10 miles tomorrow without being fully recovered, and I’m not about that life right now. So instead I’m going to do my 4 miler tomorrow morning, then do my long run on Sunday. That should work out quite nicely. 🙂
So how was your Friday? Did you do anything fun? Do you like grocery shopping??
Until next time!
