On The Town

The weather isn’t so pretty outside, but my mom and I had a really nice morning together, shopping and having lunch. We went to Anthropologie first, which if you don’t know, is my favorite store ever. I worked there last summer and loved it but didn’t make any money because I just spent it all on clothes…I fully plan on working there again just maybe one day a week when I move back to get my discount back…I love it that much! I brought the girls some chocolate lavender cake and they loved it!

For lunch we went to one of my favorite lunch spots here in Tampa, which is conveniently right next door to Anthro, Restaurant BT. They have these fabulous rice noodle bowls with the most amazing pan fried tofu—my mom and I eat got one along with homemade limeade. Delicious.



I also stopped at the dog store and got Dexter a new collar with little fish on it and a new cat toy. I honestly have never met a cat that loved toys SO much as Dexter does! He certainly has a growing collection :). My mom bought him some new treats as well because she couldn’t resist.

The plans for the day have changed because poor Ryan’s boat broke down and they had to be towed in and therefore couldn’t finish the tournament. I haven’t heard from them so I don’t really know the status but I don’t think I’ll be heading to the weigh in and after party. We still have a birthday party to go to tonight in St.Pete but that’s not til later. I think I’m going to read this afternoon and maybe hit the upstairs gym (or maybe not…we’ll see)….

    Yes, Anthropologie is a great store – they have such unique clothing and accessories!

    Aww, Dexter looks adorable with his new collar :0)

    What a cute collar! And I am obsessed with anthro too! I try to stay away because every time I go I break the bank. But their clothing is sooo different and gorgeous! I almost considered getting a job there too just for the discount but figured I should take a job working with kids since I am going to be a teacher 🙂

    Have a great Saturday!

    When you used to make oatmeal ahead of time for your early morning class, how many days worth of oatmeal did you make at a time? And how did you store it…….several days worth would take up a lot of space with all the containers.

    I make mine with milk, so I have done two days worth, but am afraid with the milk to do longer? Thanks!

    Hope Ryan gets his boat fixed!

    Dexter’s super-cute. I like the collar!
    Have a good rest-of-the-weekend. See you in the halls on Monday! (I’m in plated desserts, so I think we may be in the same building?)
