We were in need of a few grocery items, and Jim was going to run to the store. I said, “Hey, want some company?” We left the kids home (you folks with younguns don’t know the joys of doing this yet, but ohmygosh, you’ll love it when it’s your turn!) and took off, with my “$10 off a $50 purchase” coupon in hand.

Our local grocery store is in the midst of a Grand Re-opening Weekend because they just remodeled. We parked the car and entered the store. Jim offered me something from the in-store Starbucks because he wanted a coffee and didn’t want to drink alone. LOL

We picked up his coffee and my hot apple cider and strolled towards the produce section. Due to the celebration, there were samples set up everywhere. I turned to Jim as I sipped my apple cider and said, “You know, this could almost be like a real date!!” He agreed and we went to try some lemon cake in the bakery.

Although we didn’t try every sample, we did partake in a few of them as we checked items off the grocery list. I kept joking about how romantic this was.

At the checkout, we paid for our purchases and were told that we had randomly been chosen to win an iPod Shuffle! Woo hoo! What a great ending to our “date”!

Now we’re home, and the “fantasy” is over. I’d love to post more (maybe later?), but my pile of ironing awaits.

Oh, goody!
