Whole Foods...how I love thee
I went to Whole Foods for the first time ever today. I had to go into BR to pick up a sweet, used wagon for the girl-child ($15 - score!), so I decided to finally see what all the fuss is about.
I loved it. The produce, the fish, the meat cuts...the wine...AWESOME. The prices??? Not so much. Yikes.
I walked out with 4 Lady Apples (teeny tiny things...had to try them), a bag of Arborio rice (can't find it in the feckin' grocery stores around here, for some reason), a fruit cup, and some beer. Mr. Refney loves his Old Rasputin, and it was cheap. So, there ya go.
I also heard the Abita Brewery got itself blowed up this morning. Thank FSM, they'll be back in production tomorrow. I thought I was going to have to make a run on some Restoration Ale and Jockamo IPA. :) Also, we have a friend who works there, so glad no one was hurt. Doubly glad the beer is fine as well. :)
Mrs. Refney is a stay-at-home mom and housefrau. Mr. Refney is man of many talents, one of which includes creating beautiful spaces. Lil'MissRefney is our darling, beautiful, curious, smart love child. We are looking happily to the future, of growing together, moving up in the world, and teaching LilMis' (and any others that may come along) the ins and outs of this crazy world. Yearning to raise free-thinking, questioning, smart kids.
