Purple people eater

September 24th, 2006

Another weekend bites the dust. Yesterday it was rainy out so we didn’t do anything. The day just dragged on forever and ever too; it was torture. Today we were more productive once we dropped the kids off at home. We hit Walmart for the first time in over a month for some necessities. I checked out their craft section and got a beading tool and a few beads. Joe picked up a Nerf football that we tossed back and forth out back later in the day.

It was lunchtime by the time we left Wally World, so we decided to grab something to eat at Lonestar Steakhouse. They have great food and the best dinner salad because they use the freshest ingredients and cut up the juicy tomato into small squares. For my entree, I ordered the grilled chicken because I’ve had it before and it’s really juicy with a buttery flavor. Joe tried their buffalo chicken tenders which were really yummy too. What is it about going out to eat when you didn’t plan to ahead of time that makes it so much more enjoyable?

We went to Kohl’s after lunch because I wanted to see this necklace in person but they didn’t have any. They did have a similar one, though, and it’s really shiny, so I think I’m going to order it, and this one too. The trip wasn’t a total bust, however: I was looking for a sweater and found two I really liked, both purple (one lilac and the other darker). I was hesitant to buy both because they were $30 each but Joe insisted since I don’t often find sweaters I like. I plan on trying them on again before I decide for sure to keep them, though. I don’t mind spending the money as long as I’m sure I will wear them often. Both are really soft and comfortable. So soft, in fact, the cashier said she wanted to get one to use as a pillow because she was tired. Haha.

I got more beads at Jo Ann Fabrics too. Now I need to actually finish a piece. That would be nice, wouldn’t it?

After we tossed around the football late in the afternoon, we walked around a local forest preserve and watched the sun set. We had to take advantage of the beautiful fall day because I have a bad feeling it’s going to get very cold very soon. It’s already getting dark out too early.
