April 10th - you glorious day - you've come not a moment too soon!  You brought with you warm (dare I say, hot?) weather, a large deadline accomplit, and the grand opening of the Costco near my house.  Yes, April 10th, you are heaven sent.

The only thing nice about having a four-month-long project is that the project consumes most of the drab winter and finishes up right when the weather turns glorious.  It's certainly a way to make the dreary months go by quickly each year.

I got off late yesterday, but not too late, so Blake and I went to scope out the Free Scoop situation at Ben &Jerry's.  When we arrived, the line snaked all the way down the street.  Usually I'm down to wait an hour for free ice cream, but this line was surrounded by fundraisers and small cheerleaders doing peppy cheers.  Maybe it was the eternal line, or maybe it was the fact that I'd already snagged a free scoop from the Union Station location on the way home, but I just couldn't take it.

So, we did the next best thing and treated ourselves to dinner at Chick-Fil-A.

And, if I know one thing, I know that one good fast food turn deserves another.  After inhaling our delicious nuggets, we walked right past the long line, the fundraisers, and the cheerleaders to Potbelly for Chocolate Malts.

Free scoop day may have turned into $2.50 malt day, but any day with ice cream is ok in my book.


  1. Congrats on finishing your project! I hope you can enjoy a relaxing spring now. How exciting that there is a Costco closer. I'm a little envious since our closest Costco is an hour away.

    1. I know! Costco = happiness. I am worried about what it's going to do to traffic in our area, though. I guess I'll just count my blessings that I don't have to drive an hour to get to one :)
