After such a fun and spontaneous day yesterday it was admittedly a bit hard to get back into a routine today. As my husband can attest – I live for spontaneity. I love waking up and not know what the day will hold and then making it into something wonderful.
We spent the first half of Labor Day getting some work done. One of the harder aspects of owning your own business – you must work even on holidays! I was so glad we got work out of the way, though, because then we had the rest of the day to relax and play.
On a whim, we decided to head to Tulsa. There are several draws to visiting this second closest city to us:
1. my brother-in-law and sister-in-law live there.
2. Whole Foods lives there.
3. There’s a mall.
What can I say? I’m easily pleased.
Before heading out of town, we grabbed some lunch to take on the road.
For him – Chickfila. He doesn’t get quite as excited as I do about taking pictures with his food.
For her – Panera.
Mediterranean Veggie Sandwich (minus the feta)
Our first stop in Tulsa as at the Apple Store at the mall to look at iPads. The husband is considering purchasing one for the business, but got cold feet and decided to think on it some more.
We also stumbled upon this place while perusing the mall.
I had never tried Teavana tea before, and I was pleasantly surprised! They had several different flavors out for sampling and they were all delicious. I resisted bringing any home with me, but I would definitely like to try some of their teas in the future. Tea has been on my mind more and more with colder weather fast approaching, so Teavana – maybe we will meet again:)
Upon leaving the mall, we headed straight for my BIL and SIL’s house. We didn’t stay there long as they had dinner cooking and we needed to get back home, but considering we hadn’t seen them since Christmas (pathetic!) it was so nice to catch up in person for awhile.
Unfortunately I didn’t get a picture yesterday, but just for fun here’s one from when they (MIL and FIL came too!) came to visit us when we lived in Thailand. Fun times.
Anyway, before heading back home, we grabbed some dinner at PeiWei
And then headed to Whole Foods, where the best thing ever happened.
I was reunited with my love.
Almond Butter and I have been separated for a good few months due mostly to the much lower cost of peanut butter:( But last night Whole Foods had their machine working where you can grind your own, and it was only $4.99/lb. So much cheaper than buying it in a jar here!
I was a true foodie through and through last night as I giddily walked through the store with my prized possession tucked safely under my arm and a smile from ear to ear. Only those of you who share my love for almond butter can understand how happy I was. The rest of you can just think how weird I am. I’m okay with that:)
It was a smooth ride all the way back home…just me and the husband. And possibly some dark chocolate.
Hope you all had a great day and are all geared up for the short week!
Do you live for spontaneity like myself? Or do you prefer the structure of a routine and planning?
