A Blessed Weekend

Last weekend God blessed us with an amazing weekend. I wanted to share it with you.

Another note before I get started. I am not being paid to mention anything that I am writing about. We truly had a great time.

It really got started when I arrived home on Friday. On our porch was the Tupperware that was ordered a couple of weeks ago. There was even more than I expected. We had earned the pan for recruiting someone to the business (we are Tupperware consultants). But there was also the lunch bag that I had been wanting, which my husband had ordered without me knowing. He is so sweet to me.

I was so excited.

Then Saturday, we slept in. It was great to sleep in on a Saturday, since I hadn’t done so in a couple of weeks.

Then we ran a quick errand.

Lunch was had at one of our favorite places, Chick-fil-A. Where I had a chicken sandwich, waffle fries, and lemonade. We sat and talked for a while & planned our day. Sorry, no photos of this stop.

After that, we drove down to Queen Creek, AZ and visited the Queen Creek Olive Mill.

It is an amazing place. It smells like olive oil the whole time your there, which is such a wonderful smell.

We decided to take a tour. We bought our tickets. Then walked around a bit. Taking pictures, while waiting on the tour to start.

The tour taught us all about olives, olive trees, and olive oil production. It was about 45 minutes long.

Next we tried gelato made with olive oil. Yummy. Followed by shopping. Bought a few things. I got to taste test the olives before I bought them. So delicious.

Found some out of the ordinary things.

We had a great time.

On the way home, we stopped off in Glendale, AZ at La Piazza Al Forno. This is a restaurant that appeared on Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives. We decided a couple of years ago to try to go to all of them and we’re having a great time doing it. This is #24. There are around 1000 or so of these restaurants, so you may see more of them on here as time passes. You never know.

When we walked in, I could smell the same wonderful smell from the olive oil place. Our waitress was a sweet lady. They had Frank Sinatra playing.

We enjoyed some amazing food.

I would definitely recommend it.

We had such an amazing weekend. God has blessed us with each other & I was so grateful to get to spend time with my amazing husband.
