A slight detour

Yesterday was a very fun day. We had a shopping extravaganza - a little "detour" that N had planned as a surprise. We went to Joe's Sporting Goods first and found 3 things in 2 hours! We had to be picky and look at EVERYTHING! By this point, it was about noon and we were starving, so we stopped at this neat little Irish Pub for lunch and had some beef stew and a yummy whole wheat roll. We needed a game to exchange over Christmas, and we saw a game store in the same complex as lunch, so we had fun in there for about 30 min or more. It was fun reading about all of the new board games. We also got a few for us, as we've decided to start a monthly game night. :) After that, we headed over to REI, where we shopped 'til we dropped! That is one of our favorite stores! I needed a couple of layers of underwear (silkies and another one to top that) for hiking/snowshoeing during winter. I might even oblige him one winter camping expedition a year! We loaded up a whole shopping cart with goodies and scored a bunch of goodies! This was our one shopping extravaganza for the year - and N's second. (The first being gathering everything needed for the wilderness trip in July.) We had a blast together. We finished off the evening with a warm fire in the stove, grilled cheese sandwiches with tomato soup, and a hot tubbie with Starbucks. Does life get any better?!

That does sound like quite the life. In fact, it sounds like a resort/spa experience. Maybe Matthew and I need to come visit you so we can be pampered.
