Lucky me got to spend the afternoon shopping with mi madre!
But before leaving the house, my tummy was grumblin’, so I snacked on half of a PB&J sandwich, along with this strawberry-filled yogurt bowl.
I enjoyed a strawberry Chobani, and topped it off with some fresh strawberries, the rest of my banana from this morning, chia seeds, and some of my cranberry-almond granola. It had been a while since I had the strawberry CHO…I forgot how good it is!
Mom and I had a great time shopping around today and made our way into some of our favorite stores. I actually ended up finding a pair of super cute shoes while my mom was scoping out the scene in one of her favorite spots…
So nice and springy, right? I didn’t end up buying them, partly because I really don’t need them, and partly because they were a wide width and my feet are anything but wide. More like narrow and gross.
Mid-afternoon, I started craving some caffeine (I never had my morning coffee today!) so we made a quick stop into Starbucks so I could pick up an iced Skinny Caramel Macchiato. I also snacked on a Clif Z Bar that I brought with me from home.
These two clearly show that I’m ready for spring/summer, no? They’ll look super cute with some crisp white shorts, fa sho.
But my favorite purchases of the day came from another favorite store of mine…Le Gourmet Chef! Are ya surprised???
I picked up a new decorating tip for my cupcake creations, along with a new scooper, which I’m *hoping* will work in my favor when it comes to cupcake baking.
You see, I’ve been using my regular cookie scoop (on the left) but since one scoop is too small, I often end up eyeballing them and they often end up uneven. Hopefully this size will do the trick!
I guess I’ll just have to bake up a batch this week to test it out…what do ya think?
By the time I got home, I was starving, so I went the easy route and put together a couple big ‘ol salads for me and the hubby.
My salad was filled with any veggie I could find in the veggie drawer: romaine lettuce, cukes, grape tomatoes, red onion, red & yellow pepper, broccoli, carrots, dried cranberries, Chavrie goat cheese, and a few slices of oven-roasted deli turkey. I drizzled a little balsamic vinaigrette over the top and it became pure deliciousness.
Now I’m ready to settle in and FINALLY watch my beloved One Tree Hill which is back on tonight. WOO!!
I know, I’m still a teenager at heart I guess.
Question for the Evening:
What’s the last fun item you purchased?
