...you don't always see them, but you know they're always there.
I spent today with my friend Stella and we had a fabulous time! I woke up and made a green monster along with a piece of crispy bacon for breakfast. Then we were off to Raleigh for some serious shopping. Both of us got lucky in the shoe department (two pair each!) and I got this awesome dress at Francesca's.
It's such a fun little store with such unique pieces of clothing and cute little doodads that you just have to admire--I love all the bright colors in that shop!
After the mall, we went to Trader Joe's & Whole Foods. I got lots of goodies to make my Paleo energy bars and I can't wait to whip up a fresh batch! We got sushi from the WF 'food court' for lunch.
I somehow managed to get strange multi-grain purplish rice & it really did not please me. I ate the large pieces of fish like sashimi and it was VERY good! I snacked on a fruit leather on the way back home.
Then opened up my pecan-cherry-cranberry mix for a quick pick me up before dinner.
After awhile I started to get hungry, so I heated up some of my chicken soup
And let.me.tell. YOU!!! This may be the best chicken soup I've ever made! I can't wait to have another bowl of it tomorrow! :) Had some of my new tea after dinner, I remember my mom got this tea when I was younger & I haven't had it in years.
YUM!! It's so good! Reminds me of home :) And I just finished off a half cup of my new COCONUT MILK ICE CREAM. Oh yeah this stuff is SO DELICIOUS!!!! I can't wait to go up to WF again so I can try a new flavor!
But oh mah ceiling cat! This stuff really does rock my non-existant socks.
You can't tell me that doesn't look absolutely decadent.
Okay I'm done foaming at the mouth about my new found love of coconut ice cream.
I'm not sure what we have on tap for tomorrow, we may go up to Raleigh again for the husband to run a race, we don't know what we're doing but it should involve fireworks after dark!! Hope everyone has a great weekend! :)
