mother-daughter shopping day.

Happy Friday!  I love Fridays as it is, but they’re even better when I have the day off!  My mom came into town to visit me today which was absolutely lovely.

Before she arrived, I had a leisurely morning including a yogurt mess for breakfast!  I used an almost empty container of vanilla Chobani, threw in some blackberries, chia seeds, pecans, and cacao nibs.

As I write this many hours later, I just now realize that I didn’t add any oats!  Oh well…life goes on!

Mom arrived around 10 am and I helped her load some music on the iPod shuffle she got from her company recently.  It was her gift for 15 years of employment!  Once that was set, we headed off to the mall.  I gave her a Groupon for Coldwater Creek for Mother’s Day, so we went to use that and I needed a dress for a couple events I have coming up in the next week.

We both had great success!  She got a brand new outfit and I spent more than I planned on for a super adorable dress and sweater from The Limited.

For lunch, she wanted to go to “the place we went last time with the really good guacamole”.  That would be On the Border, so twist my arm!  You want guacamole?  Okay, if you insist!  😉

I had an order of the avocado and red chile pesto enchiladas with cilantro lime rice and black beans for my meal.  I ate half and brought the rest home.  Yay leftovers!

For dessert, we stopped at Mom’s favorite ice cream place:  Dairy Queen!  She loves their ice cream and there’s no DQ in my hometown, so it’s treat for her.  I had a mint Oreo blizzard and it was delish.

We both ended up dozing off for an hour or so when we got back to my place.  Once she headed back home, I had to pack because I’m starting a house/dog sitting gig with Norman and Rosie again!

Ladies, where is your favorite store to buy dresses? I never used to be confident enough to wear them, but I’m all about it now!

I love the dresses at the Limited and how they fit, but really really wish they weren’t so pricey (the on sale ones are never in my size! Wah!). That one is rocking for you though! I have probably 6 dresses right now and they are all from different places so I guess I can’t pick a favorite :).
