My Store

Hey! It's been awhile since I last posted. It's been pretty busy at work. We hosted a walk-thru at my store last week.  That was fun!

Here are a few pics of some of the depts in my store.




More Bakery

Green Rack

Meat Dept

Seafood Dept

More Produce

I am super proud of our store team for doing such a good job presenting their departments to the visitors.

I will try and do a better job of updating more.  I really like my new store and love that it's just minutes away now.

Hope you all have a great week!

Grilling and Chilling

Today was a great lazy day. We got yo around 9, had breakfast, then got ready for our movie. We headed to AMC and watched Trainwreck, which was pretty good. I could have gone without the super cheesy ending, but that Amy chick is pretty funny.

After the movie, we got gas and grabbed a bite at a local Mexican restaurant. It was pretty good and the food was authentic. I really wished they had horchata, but they didn't.

Once we finished our meal, we headed over to Stephen's mom's house. He worked on her truck AC and we looked at old photos of Stephen when he was in the army and at West Point. He looks so different now. He's way better lookin now!!! Lol...

Once we left his mom's house, we headed back home. We are eating a late dinner. I've got everything prepped for the grill, along with a fabulous salad. I've got a load of laundry in the washer and I'm all packed to head out in the morning. It's been a wonderful vacation. I'm already looking forward to our next one when we head to Colorado Springs again.

Hope you all had a great weekend.

For some reason, all I want to do is sleep.  I am not sure it's because I am here during the day by myself, or what the deal is.  I slept in until 9 am this morning.  I stayed busy throughout the day, but fell asleep around 7 am.  I was just so tired.  Maybe it's because Stephen works 2nd shift and I am trying to stay up when he does.  I am not used to going to bed at 3 am!

Right now I am boiling a dozen eggs.  I am making tuna salad and will use some of the eggs for that.  I may even make some deviled eggs and leave some hard for salads this weekend.  I am glad Stephen is off this weekend so we can spend more time together.

Well, I am going to get busy.  Looks like it will be another late night!


Lazy Day

It's going to be another scorcher here in OKC.  Looks like a lazy vacation day for this girl!  I am going to head into the city and take a Starbucks over to Stephen's mom.  She works in a location with no air conditioning.  She will like an iced tea or something.

I made some scrambled eggs this morning with diced onions, peppers and pesto.  Yumm!  The eggs were an ugly green/brown color, but who cares!  They tasted amazing!

I'm going to clean the kitchen today, then do a small load of laundry.  I might even clean out the shower today if I feel like it.

Stephen just got in from mowing this morning.  He works 2nd shift, so mowing in the morning is so much better than trying to do it in the afternoon or evening.

Better get going.  Hope you all have a fantastic Friday!

Grocery Store Snob

I hate to say it, but I have a problem.  I'm a grocery store snob.  When you work for the same grocer for almost 20 years and have grown accustomed to outrageously high standards, you expect the same everywhere you go.  Today was not that way.

I stopped into Sprouts in OKC to grab our usual vegetables.  The quality was subpar.  Sprouts was out of organic romaine hearts and the vegetables looked bad.  Brussels sprouts were brown and some were moldy.  Many of the grape tomato containers had a few moldy fruit in them.  And, they didn't have any fresh salmon.

So, after purchasing 4 organic bananas and my 21 grain bread, I headed over to Crest.  The quality was much better and I although their organic section isn't great, I still got great quality.  They didn't have any of my salmon either and the guy behind the counter was trying to tell me that farm raised salmon is better for you and tastes better than wild caught salmon.  Sigh....  Yep.  I kept my mouth shut.  I wish grocers would educate their employees on the facts about the products they serve.

I also purchased my $4.75 dozen of cage free organic eggs.... Whoa!  I told Stephen we need to start investing in chickens.  Oh well, the eggs last us a long time, so I wasn't worried.  It's still cheaper than getting them fried up in a restaurant.

Shopping can be difficult for me, especially when I am away from my usual group of stores.  I will take pictures of my store one day so you can see where I work and how fantastic the store selection is.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend.  Stay cool!  It's hot out there!
