Glass Pumpkin Patch

October 14th, 2016

Since I called sick into work Tuesday I decided to go into the office for a few hours this morning from 7-10. Wow, if I only had to work 3 hours every day that would be awesome!

Anyway, after coming home to grab a few things we were off to the arboretum to check out their glass pumpkin patch. We were absolutely shocked by how many people were there at 11 am on a Friday morning. Doesn’t anyone work (asks the girl who works 3 days a week with a husband who is unemployed)? I’ve never seen such a long line just to get into the grounds. Luckily we decided to try our luck instead of turning around and heading home (which was our initial inclination) because the pumpkin patch wasn’t as crowded as we thought it was going to be. On top of that, the pumpkins weren’t on sale yet so there were tons to photograph and I didn’t have to worry about getting in the way of someone trying to make a purchase.

After browsing the patch we walked around the lake and then headed back to the car to drive the grounds. Unfortunately the fall colors aren’t at their peak yet so I didn’t really take any pictures of the trees.

After the arboretum we headed to Chipotle for lunch since we had scored a BOGO coupon. Too bad we forgot to use the gift card I had or it would have been free, but $10 for two burritos and chips with guacamole isn’t bad either.

After lunch we stopped by the vet to get more medicine for Gizmo. I keep having an issue with this one medication he’s on where they give me what they deem is enough and I run out of it well before I should. I picked up what should have been a 2 week supply last week and it’s almost gone only a week later. I thought maybe they weren’t giving the correct total amount but they said they are and that maybe something is going on at the pharmacy that compounds it and it’s evaporating or something. It’s the strangest and most frustrating thing because I am measuring it out correctly. I really hate that medication but without it Gizmo would likely die.

We stopped at home to drop off the medicine and then went to Walmart because I wanted to look for Tsum Tsum pajama pants that someone had posted they have. Unfortunately I didn’t see any, but I did end up buying this pair since I love purple and I love owls.


I know they are going to be super comfy like my Star Wars and polar bear pajama pants.

We also went to Target for a few items. I love it when the balance due is $42.50 but then after coupons and Cartwheel it’s only $29.
