I left work at 1 p.m. today because I have to work tomorrow afternoon through midnight. In the spirit of Halloween, I ate dirt cake someone brought into work.
My mom came to visit me at work and we had lunch together, which was a nice change from eating at my desk all alone. After I clocked out, we drove out to the new Costco in Pewaukee.
My mom stood in line to join Costco and I started filling up our cart with almond butter, Food Should Taste Good Chips and gum. My mom quit Sam’s Club today and I think she’ll enjoy shopping at Costco much more. Like I have read, they do have really nice brand names compared to Sam’s and I found more healthy food options there too. Otherwise, they’re pretty similar stores.
We sampled lots of yummy foods (my favorite food we tried besides cheese was butternut squash ravioli with pesto sauce) and I really enjoyed Sartori cheese from Antigo, WI that came in flavors such as Merlot, Raspberry and Rosemary and Olive Oil. I honestly think that Merlot cheese is something I’ll be dreaming about over the next couple of days. I regret not getting any, but my mom can always pick some up for me.
I also thought of the bloggers that love their Vitamix when I saw a huge area devoted to that product and a demonstration of it’s ability to blend so well.
Here is what I came home with: Fage and Chobani yogurts, quinoa, MaraNatha almond butter (super cheap for that huge jar, about $5.79), dried mango, floss, contact lens solution, orbit sweet mint gum (about .74 per pack of gum) and Horizon Organic Half and Half (unpictured).
Once I was on the freeway, I avoided a huge traffic jam and took it as a sign to just get off the freeway and drive to Target and pick up my eyeglasses that came in today.
My new glasses fit perfectly and everything looks so crisp through them!
They are Converse Disarray Purple Eyeglasses from Target Optical.
Karma wanted to smell them!
The other exciting aspect of my Friday involved getting this in the mail! My husband and I are such computer/Mac nerds. It sounds like it will be an insightful biography and I like the author, Issacson.
Craig is having a friend over tomorrow while I’m at work, so I need to go to the gym and then clean the house! What an exciting Friday night, huh? :)
