Today was the first time Baxter & I were able to attend the local pug meet up group! It was fantastic!
We took over the dog park – although a few other small dogs stayed around to be honorary pugsters!
So home it was to get in a nap… & off to explore a few sites of my own since this nap was sure to be a long one.
First a pit stop for something delish… a BBQ chicken sandwich at one of my favorite places – Chris’ Cosmic Kitchen! If you are in the Wilmington, NC area, this place is a MUST try. WARNING you will crave it after you taste it & there are not enough days in the week to try everything you want to there. But if you are brave, attempt the Large Stack of pancakes! Only 5 people have been able to finish them. If you do you get to join the hall of fame & even get a T-shirt! Impressive.
After lunch I decided to drive just out of town to check out an antique store to see if it might be a good place to get some furniture to fix up – after I end up getting in a better financial place…. like with a job!
So no luck there. On to another shop that I always tend to find something I wish I could bring home with me. But I wasn’t sure if they had beds…. found out they had a few, but not many queens & not really any that worked with the look I was going for, even repainted. Still the stock changed every week so it could be fun hunting just in case.
I was able to spot a few pieces that with some paint & maybe new hardware might be great finds!
The bonus here is that the longer it sits on the sales floor the more the price drops. So when I do get the money coming in, these may even be a better deal.
So maybe I am open to a few other ideas than just the IKEA stuff. But I still love my Hemnes pieces! Who knows?! But what fun it is to dream.
Oh & as far as purchases… I did AWESOME!
Didn’t get a thing other than some creamer for tomorrow’s coffee & a few supplies to make it easier to eat in rather than picking up take out again.
Now…. where is that pug? Its BATH TIME!
