Guess what happens this weekend? Other than Sunday football and a Kohl's sale (for Kohl's a sale is a constant, they'd probably get more traffic if they annouced a price inflation day)... I'm going to Austin. Tomorrow evening I will be arriving in Austin for a completely new experience. Whole Food's 30th birthday bash! Am I psyched? Heck yes I am! Even though my husband got the credit, the entry pretty much has a lot of 'me' invested in it. However, without him, the idea behind the entry wouldn't exist. So teamwork prevails in our case, yet again. (We ARE the couple you hate!)
Since our entry is posted on Whole Food's blog, I figured I ought to post it on mine too! Here's our winning entry excerpt, I am guessing it's okay to post since I linked the source. Remember, once submitted, essays become the property of the company who is running the sweepstakes.
From Anthony in Fairfax, VA
Honey, we’re going grocery shopping. Words many husbands dread, no? Well, I dreaded them myself until my wife discovered Whole Foods. I’ll admit it – most manly men like myself are a little late on the organic-green-healthy scene. Whole Foods has educated me that organic and healthy are really code words for delicious. Who knew fresh foods that aren’t loaded with fillers and chemicals could be so TASTY?
Since the post belongs to Whole Foods, please click on the blog linked above to read it in it's entirety. Anthony is listed first! (Because we're the best one, naturally)
You know, it feels really good to win something. When Anthony and I got together, we knew we were a winning team, but that was more of "winning at life". Or a way to make us feel good about getting a justice of peace wedding and inviting no one to it. To be honest, I never pictured myself as someone who won creative contests. This has inspired the both of us to expand our horizons and stop watching so much primetime television. (Although it IS addictive)
This means actually LIVING life and not sitting on the sidelines. Sometimes people can get so caught up with daily routines that they forget to live life to it's fullest. I know I am guilty of it. Rather than come up with a "bucket list" because I find that so terribly morbid, I think I am interested in coming up with an "Adventure List".
Now all I need are things to fill it with.
