Hello my loves and Happy Memorial Day!

♥ ♥ ♥

♥ ♥ ♥

I truly believe this holiday is one of the most overlooked and under appreciated, so I really want to take a moment for us all to stop and remember that so many lives were lost for our freedom. All the small things we take for granted others fought for and died for so we could have. So remember; they died for us, so we need to live for them.

I’m not going to lie though, the thought of having a 4-day weekend (yes mine was 4 days because I get Fridays off!!) got me a bit excited. I was just happy I was going to be able to relax. Little did I know there was going to be a little snag in my plans.

First there was the fact that I forgot Matt was attending Phoenix Comicon  (yes i know i’m dating a nerd, even though he went for work, i’m sure he would have went on his own if he had the opportunity) However, I am a bit of a Sci-Fi nerd myself and was a bit jealous he got to see this guy. I mean seriously. That’s one sexy captain.

Dr Who anyone? Torchwood?

Anywho, since Matt was gone all day I was incredibly bored, but I managed to run a few errands to keep me occupied.

My first stop was Market on the Move.

It’s this awesome program where basically you go and donate $10 and you get to load up on a lot of fresh produce that they have that day. Other than the long lines (and it being 100 degrees) it was a pretty cool concept.

People came prepared! Laundry baskets and wagons everywhere! A smart idea though, because the boxes they give you get heavy quick!

Here is my haul!

I actually probably had double this amount, but my main reason for going was actually for a co-worker. She was wanting tomatoes for canning, so I loaded up on tomatoes for her and of course the acorn squash for me! I see a lot of mug cakes in squash in my future!

After that, I relaxed a bit, had some lunch and decided to do a little grocery shopping. Am I the only only who seriously loves to grocery shop? Even if I only need a few items, I love just walking around.

Oh and finding beer on clearance. That’s pretty epic too.

Grocery shopping for some reason always makes me hungry. Even when I just ate, so when I got home I had a little pre-dinner snack.

It’s been way too long since I have had this flavor! Or Chobani for that matter, but I had seen them on sale and snagged a few. It’s been too long Chobani, too long.

The next snag in my weekend plans was me getting sick. I never get sick. Seriously, Matt got the flu, me nothing. About half my classmates and instructors got the flu, nope I was still good. And then randomly when no one else is sick, I get sick. Matt and I had planned for a Sunday Funday and then dinner on Memorial Day, so it really bummed me out.

Don’t worry guys. Day Quill works miracles and both happened.

We actually ended up just walking downtown and Matt remembered of a pretty cool pub he had went to for a friends bachelor party. We were actually the only ones in the bar and got pretty chatty with the bartender. Girl hooked us up with free shots! (not sure I needed those shots, but hey they were free) Which led to an impromptu photo shoot of Matt and I.

Oh the many faces of Matt and Debbie.

Tonight we have plans to go out to dinner at Blanco’s Tacos and Tequilla I got a coupon for Memorial Day and since we didn’t have any plans we thought why not! So I’m sure I will have a tasty re-cap of that night for you guys!

And if that wasn’t fun enough, Matt also got to start his day with special Memorial Day pancakes.
