Until i started this green little experiment, I had never set foot in a GNC. It seemed like a place for the muscle-bound and gullible. I probably would have never set foot in one, except that I read around the interwebz that GNC sell essential oils. The only GNC I was *consciously* aware of in Washington, was the on in the mall. I went to the GNC in the mall, and it was exactly as i expected. A body-builder store with a grand total of 4 varieties of essential oil. I didn't think any more about it until Nick & I went to Giant Eagle at midnight this weekend and, as we were driving by, I spotted the big red lights of an (obviously closed) GNC. I knew it was there. I drive by it a couple times a week, and I never thought about it. This GNC was a whole 'nother planet! It's walls were lined with the usual vitamins, but front & center was basically an organic pantry! All sorts of stuff, some of which i was having a hard time finding, right in front of me, not to mention probably 30+ varieties of essential oil. It wasn't all food either, there was also a very nice selection of personal care items. Guess who has a new customer?!?!
Extra Bonus: Pictures of my newly moved laundry room.
Basically, an empty mud room with cupboards at the end.
Once Sadie is old enough, her crate will be replaced by a bench & coat hooks and an elevated shoe shelf (since I'm not sure she'll ever outgrow her love of shoes! That's why they're on the counter)
