day trip: part 2 warrensburg/cave hollow

   the rest of our day together included both of our favorite things to do: thrifting and getting iced chai. we stopped at a local coffee shop in the downtown warrensburg area called java junction. the owner/barista made us each an iced chai with soy. this coffee shop is also a roasting plant for their own coffee beans, which is wonderful to have in such a tiny college town. if i lived here, this is where i could buy my beans from! if there is one thing i am a snob about, it's my coffee. 
   we then walked down the the salvation army to scout out any items that we could not live without. we went to this thrift store last time i was in town, but this time there were actually items i bought. i purchased a painting of two dear and a cute, little pink wallet with bunnies sewn on. each of these were only one dollar! there is a giant vintage store/flea market very close buy, so needless to say we looked through every booth and spent a lot of time in this store. alexis bought a few items and i found a few vintage purses i loved, but decided i could live without them (there is the cheap side of me coming out!). when we were both starving  we ate at a local mexican restaurant for a late lunch. i later ventured home to finish homework and some last second readings for classes the next day. i think i love day trips more than longer travels, because this way i get to sleep in my bed that evening!
