So, what might Chris & Barb do on their first date night in a long time? Well, we started the evening off at Walgreens for some beverages (I chose juice & he chose raspberry iced tea) and then we went over to Linder's (a garden store) to pick out some plants for our yard (50% off yippee). Then we did our favorite date night activity.....drum roll...we went to Fleet Farm! Now, I know I have readers that don't live in Minnesota so I will need to explain Fleet Farm to you. It is kind of like a Super Target for farmers. Where else can you buy sporting goods, and bovine vaccines, clothing and baling twine, food and horse stalls, you get the idea. If they don't carry it at Fleet Farm, you don't need it (okay, that might be a bit of an exaggeration, but not much). If I had known how much fun this store is I would have registered there for our wedding! I'm only kind of joking there.
What did we get at Fleet Farm tonight? Well, as usual, an eclectic mix of items. ten feet of chain, a 3/4"dowel and some hooks (all to hang a hammock in the tree fort), some bug spray (for this weekend), some bubble juice, four Snickers bars (for Snickers salad) and a bag of dark chocolate kisses. Like I said, this store has everything!
Now you truly know how strange we are!
