Anyway. To try to make Sunday at least worthy of the name "weekend," Alex and I took a drive through northwestern Connecticut, stopping in Litchfield. This is a quite Stars Hollow-y town, and I think Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick live there. We did not have a Bacon sighting (which would have been awesome, because I could then insert myself into the 6 degrees game! sort of!) but we did have lunch at kind of a schmancy place where they asked Alex to remove his hat (huh?) but they served very nice food and horseradishy bloody marys, so they are okay. We then went to the historical society and the Litchfield Law School, which was America's first law school. We got to watch a 15 minute video recreating what some of the early law students would have seen and discussed on their way to the law school. It turns out to be slavery, Aaron Burr, and girls. Typical.
On the way home from Litchfield we stopped at a Target and guess what I found!
My long lost dream beverage! Okay, so the situation was a little weird, in that some of the boxes looked like they had literally been through hell and high water, and they were in cases of 8 cans, which is unheard of in my La Croix research, but hooray! I bought 4 cases--2 lime, 1 lemon, and 1 pamplemousse! This should last upwards of one week, at which time I will return to the Torrington Target for another fix.
Also - LaCroix comes in 8-packs at the SuperTarget I go to. Perhaps a Target thing? I'm personally not so fond of LaCroix. More of an H2OH! girl myself - less bubbly.
Thanks for sharing.
