Driving around

Yesterday my friend Rebekka and I had the bright idea to hit up a local-ish flea market a few towns away.  While the idea was good, our timing wasn't great.  We underestimated how long it would take to get to the location, and we ended up getting a little lost, so we were only able to walk around the flea market for 30 minutes before it started to close down :/

Oh well. At least we got to look at pretty trees on the hi-way.
Miles and miles and miles of road.
Once we reached our destination we both felt a little dumb for getting lost because half of the route was the same route I take to get to my grandparent's house. Duh.  Oh well, we've already decided to visit it next month, and we should be able to find our way again without getting lost.

Since we only spent 30 minutes at the actual market we decided to get an early dinner at a local restaurant in the town.  It was both a buffet and menu restaurant... which I personally found a bit odd, and although the name Papadales would make you think that it soley had Mexican food, they also served burgers, steaks, and bbq.

It was a bit of an overload. I ended up getting an order of bacon cheese fries. Yum. Bacon.
Van Gogh umbrella!
After our slightly failed excursion we drove back to our town and did a little shopping at Micheal's so that Rebekka could pick up some turpenoid.  While we were there we found this awesome Starry Night umbrella that Rebekka ended up buying. OH MY GOSH. It is so awesome.  Eventually I'm going to have to buy one as well.  Then after we bought stuff at the craft store, we went into Books-A-Million to check out their summer sale that they were having.  I wanted to get some coffee as well, but alas, the barista working the counter was this guy that I've been trying to avoid for the past... 2 years?  So yeah. No coffee for me :(

Oh well.

It's all good though.  I have coffee at my house that I can drink out of my Cthulhu cup.


  1. Haha, I've completely not gone shopping at Office Depot because I saw a person I did not like there. Is that rude? I don't even want to get into what this person did to me (and my friends) but it just wasn't nice and I avoid her at all costs.

  2. It's better you got to experience coffee with your Cthulu cup. It just wouldn't be the same without it. I really like the umbrella too :) It's a shame you got lost, but hopefully you won't get lost next month, and you still had a fair bit of fun from the sounds of things :)

  3. That's an awesome umbrella. Our art teacher tried to make us recreate Starry Night. I can safely say, I failed! Have fun at the next flea market :) x
