I'll Drink To That

So I have only heard this song a couple of times, and it is SO stuck in my head! So, Happy Sunday and here it is for your head.
So, like she says: Cheers to the Freakin' Weekend, I'll Drink to That!!


Now, for another episode of Kim Inspired Grab a Beer and Look What I Did Last Week! 
 
I took a little road trip. It's very important to have plenty to eat and drink when you are in the car. (ps I use old cottage cheese containers as Tupperware. Classy, I know)

 
This store had a bit of everything. Need a wedding dress? 
No? How about a Snuggie?



This guy has the right idea.


I went out for Fondue. I love cheese! 
Yum, yum, yum.

 


You may have noticed that I have a tiny pony fetish. It can't be helped. 
Look how cute they are!
Is it just me, or are there a lot of tiny ponies in MO? I don't remember there being this many at home.



OH! There they are, my Tupperware! They even come with labels. 
Notice the one on the left. Be good or I will put you in there too!


I went Thrift Store Shopping! Yay. And they had everything but the kitchen sink. 
Oh wait, there it is!


 Instead of the sink, I bought all three sweaters, a pair of jeans, some books and three long sleeved shirts and a jacket.I didn't pack for cooler weather apparently. Obviously I didn't have enough books before.

Stephany, if you are reading this: I lied. I do go shopping more than once a year. Sorry.
In total (3 sweaters, 1 jacket, 1 pair of jeans, 3 long sleeves and a "few" books) = $25.
 
 

On 9.11, my uncle and my cousin, who are Firefighters, were in the pregame ceremony at AT&T park in San Francisco. They are my heros. Plus they are Giant's fans. 
(Did you read THIS POST? The Uncle below was the one that took me to my first game!)
(I did not take this photo. I am not sure where it came from. I think it's a freeze frame from a TV station)


The Fair is in town! Below is my running trail, plus, if you look closely, in the background is the fairgrounds (and my favorite ride!) I can't wait to eat some fried butter! (<-- seriously, click on this if you want to have a heart attack).

Just kidding. But I think a funnel cake may be necessary for my pre-race carb loading. Right?
 

 I sent some books to someone. I was trying to recycle an envelope and all I had was scotch tape, so this is what it ended up as. My Mom would scorn me. Don't I know how to properly wrap a package? Don't I have a few dollars to spend on proper tape? 

Apparently not. 
Sorry Ma.


We had a huge storm which darkened the sky and sent the rabbits scurrying. This photo was taken around 4 o'clock. It looks like 7 o'clock, right? The good thing is that it was about 95 that day and the next day, it was in the 60s! Sweet!

 
And then I rode off into the sunset on my trusty steed.




How was your week? 
Have you ever eaten deep fried butter? 
(or been to see the butter cow at the Iowa State Fair?)
Do you like Thrift Store Shopping? 
Or Rihanna?

  5. Fondue is amazing. The cheese course is always my favorite, too!

  6. I'm really not a fan of Rhianna. Fondue and tiny ponies, however? Big fan.

    And I'd kind of like to try deep fried butter, but only in that twisted part of my brain that makes me kind of want to try oysters, just to see if I can eat them without gagging.
