Errands with my Boy

Kurt ran errands with me today! Hell has officially frozen over! haha, kidding, but normally, he does not run errands, and normally, I would rather run them myself because I like to browse at stores, and he is kinda an "in and out" shopper.

We ended up running quite few planned and unplanned errands. First stop, the tanning salon in Newport. Kurt has a really uneven tan, and wanted to even it out before court tomorrow. Cutting it close, but he went one time while I talked on the phone to my Aunt. He bought a one month package....They asked me if I wanted to tan too. Thanks, but no thanks. Headed to Taylor after that to Bed Bath and Beyond. I had a coupon that expires tomorrow that I wanted to use. I bought a garlic press, a mini food processor, a food scale, and a garlic storage container for the frig. I looked EVERYWHERE for a cheese knife, to no avail. I will continue to look. Went to Borders after that because Kurt wanted some books on Forex trading. He bought this and this. Of course, I ended up browsing the travel section (my obsession) and bought an Africa travel book, a book on the parks of Montana and Wyoming, and I found the unauthorized biography of Tom Cruise on a clearance rack so I decided to buy more smut and purchased it. Stopped at Kroger's for groceries afterwards and impressed Kurt with my mad coupon skillz, then headed home for the night.

Made ahi tuna tacos again, and a new chili cheese dip recipe. I kinda took this recipe and added my own twist to it. Used cheese, chili (vegetarian), diced jalapenos, garlic, and onion. Yummy! While cooking, I used all my new stuff too, and like it all. The garlic press worked well, the food processor is awesome and easy to clean, and the scale is awesome for measuring things out. Woo hoo!

Kurt spent the morning writing out his goals for the year, personal and financial. They are lofty, but I think we can make a lot of it happen. Or at least I hope so. I will elaborate more later......................
