Wow, another long, interesting day.
When Tiffany’s sister, Laura, showed up, we made lunch and got ready to go shopping. I used some of the leftover sautéed veggies from last night’s dinner to make my sandwich, plus one of my favorite nut butters that went on the road with me.
Perfect lunch. My body was craving the raw fruits & veggies (plus the sautéed ones, let’s be honest).
We set out shopping and it was a long, productive 3 hours. I got a lot of really good basics (new belt, skirts, cardigan) but am still on the prowl for NON-hoochie, affordable jean shorts and some cute summer tops. All the shorts were either “boyfriend” style (relaxed, rolled up, and artistically torn) or WAY too short. The search continues.
On the way home, we experienced some unpleasantness with another flat tire. Awesome. They are doing construction in the neighborhood and the crews let too many nails in the road. The neighborhood association will reimburse for the costs, but 2 this week and 1 a couple weeks ago is a little ridiculousness. This time, no Johnny to rescue us AAA did!
When we finally got home, I was a little starving and a little tired. Tiffany, too. She took a nap upstairs and I vegged on the couch to catch up on blogs. I also munched on my new grocery store find!
A box (containing 7 packs) was about $3, and totally worth it. The dark chocolate flavor really came out, but wasn’t overpowering. Also the nutrition stats weren’t bad at all, especially for a snack, and these packed protein and was a decent serving size (~20 almonds). If you see these, I recommend them! There were more flavors, too.
When Tiffany woke up, we dug into our Easter baskets. Whoops. My mom sent some stuff for me with my grandma, but it had some Reeses Pieces that were a LITTLE too appealing this evening. No picture, but I ate a few more than necessary.
When we were all indecisive about dinner plans, my friend Megan wanted to know if I’d go to Panera (aka “Panizzle”… I’m a word thief from Tyler) and it seemed perfect. Side note: my cell phone charger is in Va Beach and my cell phone is with me. Conundrum. I’ve been switching my phone off for 45 minute chunks and turning it back on to make sure I haven’t missed anything vital. Thankfully I got to the Panera text in time!
I wanted a salad since I’ve had so many sandwiches lately, but also to repent for my Reeses Pieces sin. This salad is so amazing, I didn’t even miss the chicken! And the soup was as delicious as ever.
Now I’m back for my last evening with Tiffany! Tomorrow I’m meeting a friend on my old campus for breakfast then taking Harris out to lunch (belated birthday present) and hanging around until the Passover Seder. Then a late-night drive back to the beach. I’m definitely not looking forward to that.
