Sunday Shopping

Yesterday, a hot air balloon landed in our apartment complex.

But today I’m going to start off my post by telling you about my run. YES, that’s right, I ran today.

I got up at 7:45 and had a cup of tea and watched the news. Then I laced up my shoes, grabbed my watch and drove to the trail.

I didn’t bring my iPod. I didn’t have a goal pace in mind. I just ran out a mile and turned around and came back.

After my run, I came home and made breakfast. Waffles!

We spent about 4 hours shopping throughout the afternoon! There were a lot of places to check out. A lot of the furniture we saw was either too traditional or low-quality, but there were two sets at the first place we went that we liked.

We stopped for lunch at Bread Co. but I didn’t have my camera with me. I had a veggie sandwich and the Summer Corn Chowder that’s my favorite!

After our adventure, we came home and Allen tried to decide which bedroom set he liked best. Eventually, to settle the tie, we headed back to the very first store we stopped at to look at the two sets we had narrowed it down to:

The second set! I think Allen liked the first set better but the second set was a higher-quality, so it ended up being the selling factor. The set he bought came with the bed frame, shorter dresser, mirror and one nightstand, but Allen also bought a second nightstand so he’d have one that matches.

After all of that shopping, I finally settled down and got some homework done. I finished my homework that’s due tomorrow and prepared my equation notecard for tomorrow’s exam. I hope it goes well!

Dinner was leftovers:

    • He got it from a place called “Furniture Row” in Columbia. And I buy tempeh from Trader Joe’s mostly because its really cheap, but you can also get it at Whole Foods or if you’re lucky a grocery store…just check by the tofu, that’s where you’ll usually find it.
