Happy Saturday!
1. A house my boyfriend and I rented to see how living together would work out. A year later, I proposed to him in the living room of that house. We've been married 10 years and have four kids. Seems to have worked out well. ;o)
2. The local Farmer's Market in season, Giant, Harris Teeter, and Trader Joe's.
3. That someone invited me to write a guest blog post.

1} loring park, minneapolis
2} target, sigh. i feel lame about it, but it's the closest store to my home (i'm saving gas!) and it's nice to have one stop for food, refilling my birth control, and splurging on a cheap dress.
3} tomorrow i'm running a half marathon. i'm still amazed that i'm running at all, and running that kind of mileage.

Sarah said...

Laurie Miller said...

This is fun - my answers are 1. a wonderful old house that we rented in Portland, Or.- it turned out to be haunted. Even the tenants after us confirmed that. We left to finally buy a house. 2. It depends on what I am buying - the farmers market in the summer for veggies, Trader Joes, Pastaworks for specialty cheeses and since we have a large family - a monthly trip to Costco 3. We are expanding our vegetable garden to include chickens. I am the proud owner of urban chickens!

Shelly said...

I'm always late on these! But... evidently I like answering, so... 1) Greenville, South Carolina 2) Kroger mostly and 3) you know the answer to this one... SUBMITTING WORKSHOPS for ARTFEST! Oh, and the little bonus of getting picked to teach. LOL :)
