It’s been a while since I’ve done a Snaptacular Weekend post and I have some . . . interesting . . . I-Phone shots from our Labor Day weekend so I thought I’d give the series another go.
Right then. Let’s start how every day starts. With breakfast. I ordered a vegetarian omelet. I assumed the vegetarian omelet would include things like tomato, onion, cheese, green peppers and mushrooms. I did not imagine it would be a thin crepe like egg substance stuffed with a frozen bag of veggies that included broccoli, carrots, red peppers, water chestnuts and mushrooms. I guess at least I got the mushrooms I had been expecting. Fortunately my side of grits saved breakfast. Note to self: always ask for clarification on vague menu descriptions. Always.
After breakfast came shopping.
I bought Sweetey Petey a coloring book and me some new Blue Diamond Nut Thin Flavors. But what didn’t I buy?
A dog lamp.
An old post office box turned bank. I REALLY wanted one of these but at $89.95 each I passed. Still. They were unique and flipping awesome.
Also unique? This funky doll. I really did not want one of these. And I do mean really.
Buttons turned rings. Definitely unique as well. Mike’s grandmother just gave me her button collection so I’m going to ponder . . .
Bacon gifts!! Bacon toothpaste, bacon frosting, bendable bacon figurines, bacon beans, bacon bandaids, bacon soap, bacon board game. Bacon soap, people. Bacon soap.
A recipe box that pops a mouse out when opened. Ummmm . . . yeah. No. No thank you.
Tissue box covers. While an odd item in the first place, what was even odder was the fact some moron put the Steelers tissue box cover right smack next to the Browns tissue box cover. Again I say. No.
My name on a keychain!!! I never find my name!!!
Pickled cured Pork Hocks and Turkey Gizzards packed in vinegar brine. I passed on these too. I’m guessing Ann at Cooking Dangerously would not have. I’m totally cool leaving the weird foods to her.
A motorcycle riding gnome. I considered this one, but The Husband didn’t want anything else he had to weed wack around. So again, passed on by.
Pretty purple colored flowers. I don’t think these were on sale, just decorating the shop. I’m not a mum fan, but the color redeemed them.
A canvas print. I couldn’t decide if it was creepy or cool. I’m leaning towards creepy. I like the green and gray color combo though.
Not creepy, but aggravating to a hungry food satire blogger was the store full of fake food. Did I mention we stopped there right before lunch? Fake food. Right before lunch. AGAIN I say. No.
That’s it for the interesting shopping trip.
We did attend a livestock auction, but I’m saving that story for The Father-in-Law. He’s promised to write up a post for the blog soon. I doubt most of us have ever been to a livestock auction before so I think at the least you’ll all find it a learning experience. I did. And then we had roast beef for dinner :/
The other thing I learned? In The Husband’s hometown they all call the slide at the playground a “sliding board.”
I have since decided to call the swings, “swinging boards.”
Hope you all had a great holiday weekend and see ya all later!
Question of the Day: How was your holiday? What did you do?
