At The Gas Station
Good morning Y'all; have you ever had that moment when you want to do something weird and far fetch in your life? Yep, that's me right now being a hot mess of a momma at the gas station. :)

The other day my daughter and I stopped at the gas station. No big deal I was only getting E-85 flex-fuel for my Dodge truck. Since we were far from home, I couldn't find one gas station that carried the gas we needed. So, after 30 minutes, my light was blinking, so I pulled off the highway to a station called Bucees. No biggie because it looked like a regular store, but with a fleet of gas pumps, you know I think it may have been 100 of them. Lol, seriously, it was a lot.

After pulling over, I quickly discovered this huge place didn't have the fuel I needed.

Instead of getting all bent out of shape, I went inside to grab a Gatorade, and WOW, I thought I was in the mall.
I did not know where to start first because my eyes were rolling from side to side, looking at all the stuff in Buc-ee's gas station.
Firstly, the fresh smell of coffee brewing hit my nose, and I wanted a cup badly until I realized it was 99 degrees outside. So, that was a no go for me.:)

Long story short, I grabbed a buggy and started looking around. I saw clothes, home decor, snacks, people posing with Buccee the Beaver stature.
 It was insane, and I was confused about this place being a real gas station. Oh, did I mention this was my first time visiting such a monstrosity?

I tried to act proper, but the country gal came out in me, and before I knew it, I was straight embarrassing my oldest daughter. 
No, seriously, it was so much to see and do that we spent two hours in the store walking around looking like we were tourist.
 Who knew I would get decoration ideas from a spot next to getting engine oil on aisle 5.

My favorite thing was Banana Pudding, who knew the gas station would be so high class. :) lol( no pun intended)
There were places to get smoked sausages, pull pork freshly cut for sandwiches.

Ok, I am not ashamed to say I ordered myself a fully loaded hotdog, with chili, Fritos, mustard, onions, and a pickle spear. Hands down, it was a doggone good mess with a side of deliciousness.

I also got myself a watermelon sour Icee drink and a side of Buccee kettle chips. Although I did not need all that stuff, I got it anyways. #YOLO

I never realized the gas station could be such a cool place that is filled with so many things that my eyes couldn't hold it all in. Did I mention the massive amount of clothes and stuffed animals? I bought smell goods for the house, and I almost changed my home to the farmhouse look. 

I had to pass the house section, or I would have come home with a moose head to hang on the wall as decor. And we all know that is not my style. :) I'm a country, but I love my colorful living space.

The moral of this story Is: I went to the store and found a reason to laugh, try on big hats, and eat a crunchy hot dog. And it was fun!

Live Life With Purpose And Without Apologizes :)

Until Next Time See Ya In A Bit!
