This Week on Instagram September 1-15

During Labor Day weekend I went on a solo trip to Texas to visit My Love. I'd never traveled so far by car on my own, so it was a big adventure for me filled with good food, fun and some surprises.
The Peasant Village Restaurant
The Peasant Village Deli and Pastry shop is located in a little house across from Civil Park which houses the International Waterlily Collection. The interior is covered with murals on the walls and lattice and grape vines hang from the ceiling in one room. This place is known for the staff heckling customers to move to the back of the line if they don't know what to order. But the heckling is worth the weight for fabulous sandwiches.
The Chupacabra sandwich
The Chupacabra Sandwich is pure deliciousness- turkey, oven roasted chicken, brie, provolone, remoulade, pesto, lettuce, roasted bell, caramelized onion and tomato on a jalapeƱo cheddar roll. *drool*
The Ring!
Surprise! I actually visited the International Waterlily collection and rose garden on my own during my first full-day in Texas. But on Sunday, The Boy asked me to take him to the park so that he could see it for himself and while we were there he got down on one knee and proposed! So now I'm engaged!
road trip refreshment
On my way home from Texas I made a pit-stop in Arcadia, Oklahoma to check out Pop's which houses a very large variety of soda pop- from bacon to blueberry and cola to corn flavored. I took home a cup full of Irish Dr. Pepper and a six-pack variety of cream soda, kumquat soda, root beer, Obama blueberry, bacon soda and cucumber soda.

A Flying Donut
This past Friday there were donuts at work from The Flying Donut and they were delicious!
My crocheted vine
Finally, for the past month I have been frantically crocheting granny squares and vines in order to participate in "yarn bombing" the Wichita State University Campus in celebration of the grand re-opening of The Ulrich Museum of Art. Over 180 people participated in the project by creating knitted and crocheted pieces to cover the campus's vast sculpture collection. The "yarn bombing" will be on display until September 23, 2012. If you want to learn more about the project, check out the news segment and/or linked website below.
