Girl On A Mission

After work today, I was on a MISSION! :mrgreen:

But before I made my way there, I had to make a quick pit stop for another “mini, spur-of-the-moment” mission…

1/2 price Frappucino!  Today’s order was my normal Caramel Light, and it was much better than my last one.  I also snacked on a Clif Z Bar.  Have I mentioned how much I love these things?? 😉

Ok, so NOW, onto my mission….


Our mall had a Forever 21 store for years, but the space was a little cramped and it was always a mess.  About a month ago(?), they expanded into a NEW location which is at least 5 times bigger than the old one!  So, in order for me to shop here, I have 2 conditions that were a “go” for today:

1. I must shop by myself

2. I need at least an hour to shop (I was there for about 1-1/2 hrs!)

WOW, were my arms tired by the time I made it to the dressing rooms.  I must have tried on about 20 different items, but in the end, I certainly didn’t leave empty handed! 😉

Don’t worry, I won’t keep you all in suspense too long! 😯  I also tried to do some shopping for a dress to wear to our friends’ Joe & Kate’s wedding next month, but no such luck.  Maybe I’ll head back over the weekend?

By the time I got home, I again put myself in the same situation as yesterday, where I was ready to start gnawing on my arm.  UGHH!  I guess I didn’t expect to be gone so long?  I debated on grabbing something from the food court at the mall, especially once I had the sweet smells of pretzels and pizza flirting with me and my empty tummy. 😉  BUT, I knew whatever choice I made at home would be better than those options, so I defied temptation and headed home. (tiny applause!)

I was this close to making myself a salad, but last minute decided it was breakfast food calling my name.  It was quick, easy, and totally delicious.

And some Quaker Oatmeal Squares with strawberries & Silk Pure Almond Vanilla Almond Milk

I’m so excited…Hubby is back!! 😀  Now I’m just waiting for him to come back inside from working out in the yard.  I’ll tell ya, I don’t think I have ever seen a guy so obsessed with pulling weeds!  He hates the dandelions that are were in our yard, so he goes out and pulls them all….one…by…one.  I think he’s nuts! :roll:

Does your man have any crazy obsessions when it comes to house or yard work??

    So funny- I almost went to Starbucks after work today as well…but I got side tracked…boo :(
    Oh, & I have to say, I thought you said “my friend- JON & Kate’s wedding” I was like, uh…that’s ironic- but then I re-read it :)
    Also, I LOVE Forever 21 as well- they FINALLY expanded ours as well a few months ago- now it’s TWO stories & TONS to choose from :) I can never leave there without something!!

    I love Forever21! Our mall has a forever 21 with mostly clothes and some accessories. But they also have a For Love store that is only shoes, handbags, and accessories. I find myself on their website at least 2-3 times a week. I guess sometimes that’s my way of “fake” shopping so I won’t spend all of my money in that store.

      For Love?!?! I’ve never heard of it, but it sounds AMAZING! I’m going to have to check out that website…thanks for the tip! 😉
