Okay that title is not really true but it's all I had!
Mark arrived home safely from the UK on Thursday. We treated it like a Friday and ordered pizza. He didn't go into work on Friday so I've been so confused on what day it is. (no I'm not eating pizza, haven't had any in 8 weeks but plan on cheating with our favorite Aurelio's in Las Vegas this week)
On Friday we headed to Glen Oaks, CA to our favorite apple orchard to get Rome Beauty apples. Well they didn't have any. We were so bummed about it. We ended up getting a Seymour Winesap apple which we had never heard of before. It is delicious, crisp and tart like we like our apples.
We picked up a carmel apple for Amber, some apple cider to try out a Apple Cider Sangria recipe I found on Pinterest and a small pumpkin. I also got a delicious homemade pecan log roll which will be a special treat one day when I really need it!
Note to self: Buy a pumpkin at Trader Joe's next year, they have them for $5.99 and we paid almost $12.00 for the same size. I was off taking a few pictures when Mark checked out so I didn't know how high priced they were........
About a month ago my friend Amy told me about the gift in the kids meals at McDonald's. Of course I didn't know about them because I don't have any little ones around and also it would be rare for me to go there to eat.
So I went around to several stores trying to find what they had left. I was able to find 4 out of the six and the other two #1 Dorothy and #2 Scarecrow were purchased from Amazon. Obviously they were not the $1.50 price from McDonald's but I couldn't have an incomplete set.....right? That's my story and I'm sticking to it!
