I Love My Potbelly

Hi Friends 🙂

How was your Saturday? Ours was great. As I shared with you yesterday, 8.27.07 was the day that Jason proposed – yes we celebrate almost any anniversary we can think of!

Back in August of 2007, I kept having dreams about the number 827 or $8.27 or 8.27 and it seemed like whenever I glanced at the clock it would read 8:27. Or, my purchase amount for things happened to be $8.27. I wish I was making this up, but it is true!

It was the craziest thing! Finally I mentioned it to J because it was so odd. Later he told me that the day I mentioned my 827 phenomenon was the day he picked up my engagement ring. 🙂 He took that as a sign that August 27th was THE DAY to propose.

He took me on a picnic lunch that day – and we ate Potbelly sandwiches. If you have a Potbelly near you, I sure hope you have eaten there before. Their food is AWESOME. Now, every year around 8/27 we will eat at Potbelly’s in honor of our little anniversary.

For me: Roast Beef on multigrain bread, with mustard, lettuce, tomato and hot peppers

For Jason: Turkey on white with mayo, mustard, hot peppers

And a few Root Beers 🙂

Afterward we shared this:

I have no way to describe this cookie, except for this: It is the most amazing sugar cookie on the face of the earth. It tastes like cookie dough and just melts in your mouth.

And, one of the best things about Potbelly: their Hot Peppers. These babies are HOT HOT HOT. We bought a whole jar!

Thanks everyone for your nice comments yesterday. I am truly blessed to have such a wonderful, supportive husband who shows me every day how much he loves me.

We are off to the Minnesota State Fair!

What are you up to today?
