As far as Saturdays go, this was the most awesome I’ve had in ages. Nothing spectacular happened, but it was just a great day. I drove myself to Raleigh for super fun informational meeting (I’ll blog about it sometime depending on the outcome!! ). Raleigh is only about a 50 minute drive away, but my hubby and I like to joke about it being the end of the Earth. We obviously don’t get out much or stray more than 20 minutes out of our little town! So I made it to the big city, went to my destination, had a fantastic time and then went in search of the mysterious Crystal Light Mocktails again. I started at Krogers in Durham.
I'm soooo curious about bacon popcorn!!
Obviously this is not the Mocktails. It’s something else I found! I love bacon. I love popcorn. I’d surely love the both of them together, right? I won’t be able to say for sure today because I did not buy it. Pretty much the rest of the afternoon went like this. I saw tempting snacks and managed to just say no.
I bet they taste incredible!
I made a quick pit stop at Panera Bread to get a steak salad to go. I love Panera and don’t get there nearly enough. Mainly because I don’t allow myself–hello, bread bowls???!!! I was standing line next to these gems. I took their picture and also told them no.
I'm dying. No air condition in my SUV. Ugh. Not good for summers in NC!
I hopped back into my hot, hot, hot Xterra. My vehicle is 11 years old, will be paid off next year and no longer has air conditioning. I could fix it, but eh, I try to muddle through. I was miserable at this point in my travels, but the search for the Mocktails had to continue. I pressed on to Wal-Mart.
Where is it?
This was the fastest trip ever to Wally World. I made it in and out, because as you can see, there are no Mocktails on this shelf.
OMG. Five guys is here???
I was about to leave Durham and head towards Chapel Hill when I had to double back. Was that a Five Guys I saw? Yes, yes it is Five Guys! When I am next feeling the need for a cheat meal, I will be going here. Mayyyyybe. But it’s nice to know it’s here! I was proud for saying no once again today.
Gatorade was on sale at Harris Teeter!
I figured I’d stop inside of my Harris Teeter to look for the Mocktails. No dice. But I did find my favorite Gatorade on sale! Low Calorie Glacier Freeze–AND I had $1 off coupons AND it is Super Double Coupon Week! That means for my 8 pack, I only paid $2.88!! Woo hoo!! So I picked up two of them. This totally made up for the lack of Mocktails. I realized I hadn’t played my Power Ball numbers yet or bought bread, so I kept on down the road to Food Lion in Carrboro.
I picked up my bread and a few other goodies! I was just about ready to start snacking on some of this stuff when I realized I still had my steak salad waiting for me. I had to hurry home and grub!
I heart Panera.
The lettuce looked a little lime green to me, but I was so hungry I didn’t care. And the steak…oh the glorious steak–I love it! I was about to skip the baguette, but…
…this time I told myself! Eat that tasty baguette and enjoy. Mmm! Bread makes me smile. So that was my fun Saturday. It was great to get out of the house by myself (BOOT FREE) and get some things accomplished.
How was your Saturday?
