I was desperately trying to find a fall-themed event for Monday, but nothing really caught my eye.
Apple picking sounds great - but we already have plans to go next week... and what in the world am I going to do with bushels upon bushels of apples?
When all else fails -- head to the zoo! We lucked out with pretty amazing weather and free parking! woo!
Afterwards, we hit up a local legend for dinner: The Italian Store in Arlington. With all the excitement that comes along with a to-die-for meatball sub, I somehow left my coach purse on the back of my chair as we drove away. I always joke that the purse itself is worth more than the contents – but with my luck, the day I lose it, I have $400 cash inside. I frantically called The Italian Store and they said that one of their regulars, a federal agent, took it with him for safe keeping. THANK GOD.
Natually, the kid at The Italian Store did not give me the right cell number for the fed, so I freaked out because some kid named "Timmy" kept answering the phone #suburbanpeopleproblems. Eventually, I got it all worked out and positive karma seriously came back to me. All those times I feel like I’m doing something for nothing… that's what makes this world go ‘round.
