Has anyone tried the new Taco Bell breakfast menu? Obviously, because of our commitment, we haven't gotten the chance to do much taste-testing at restaurants, but today was special. Taco Bell has been having "Free Breakfast Fridays" several times this month, so after we got ready for the day, we decided to give their meal a try. Today's free menu item was the Southwest Sausage Burrito; the location was actually out of sausage, but I asked if they could substitute bacon instead, and they complied. So, I was able to get a free breakfast this morning! Isn't it nice how God blesses in the little things? :o)
I didn't drive out that far just for breakfast, though. We were running low on milk, and Taco Bell is just a few buildings down from Kroger's, so that was my real reason for our morning trip. We don't normally shop Kroger (the Commissary on-base is cheaper and closer so we save on gas and food!), but they often have milk for a discounted price. Sometimes, there aren't any good deals, but today, there were several gallons of milk marked down to $1.75! I decided not to be greedy and only bought two of them, LOL! :~D
Plus, I drove on the highway -- all by myself! -- and didn't get lost or get into an accident! Woo-hoo! :P And (to back-track for a moment) while I was at Taco Bell, I was heading out the door holding the diaper bag and my breakfast in one hand, and Little Man and his car seat in the other.
(For those of you who don't know, I am very short (we're talking just over 5' 0" here!) and slender (as in under 90 lbs, okay?). When I have to carry around my baby in a car seat, I have a hard time! I really don't know what I'm going to do with this boy as he is getting older and heavier, LOL! But, again, I digress...)
Anyway, I was slowly making my way to the door, all the while trying to figure out how I was going to get both of the doors open without dropping the baby or anything else. I had pretty much decided I would just put the boy down, open the door, and use my body to prop open the door... while I picked him up, set him down again, and repeated the process with the next set of doors.
Just before I made it to the first door and set the car seat down, an older gentleman walked by and said, "Wait! Here, let me get that for you." He smiled and held the door open for me, so I gratefully walked through -- just as I was about to thank him, he said, "Oh! Let me get that other door, too!" So, he walked around me, and held open the second set of doors for us, smiling kindly the entire time. I returned his smile and said, "Thank you very much!" And, he replied with a (genuine) "Have a great day!"
I am always happy to find a gentleman these days, as they are sometimes few and far between! Needless to say, I'm pretty excited about how my morning went. :o)
