Hi folks! I hope you all had wonderful weekends.
I apologize for this very long, picture-less post. I’ll try to be a better blogger and actually capture my life on film better.
We spent lots of time playing at the dog park. Charlie met a new pal that he romped around with [whoever came up with that phrase???] for a good hour. We came home and made homemade pizzas and relaxed because we had an early wake up call Saturday morning.
Saturday we went to Des Moines for the first time since moving to Iowa. We woke up early so we could make it there in time to do a mighty big to-do list. We went to the Jordan Creek Mall and walked around for a long time. I am such a sale shopper that I didn’t buy a single thing! I saw so many cute spring things, but I just couldn’t get myself to pay full price for anything. The mall was beautiful though and we will definitely go back!
Then we went to Macaroni Grill for lunch. I love MG so much and was really sad when they went out of business in Madison. I can’t get enough of that bread they bring out before the meal. And the Caesar Salad is to die for!
We hit up Marshalls and World Market.
And the pièce de résistance - Trader Joes! TJ’s is one of the things that I miss most about living in Madison. Josh actually used to work there so I think it has a special place in his heart too. My best find of the day – Dark Chocolate with Caramel and Black Sea Salt! Shut the front door. Soooooo good.
And Sunday was spent studying and catching up on work from Spring Break.
So where was the cooking in there? Oh, it wasn’t. Homemade pizza. That’s about it. So today I’m going to to do something different. I saw the TAG! on MMandL’s YouTube channel and loved it. I think I’m supposed to do a vlog of it, but I just worked out and don’t think you want to stare at sweaty me. My answers are the bold ones. And there are some links to my fave products. Here we go!
