So in my last post, I hinted that I had done something special on Tuesday afternoon as I didn't have any work. Well today, you get to find out just what was so special (lucky you!). It's not anything big, but it was still a lot of fun! Okay, enough jibber jabber. After class, I went to hang out with a friend from college (she's going to be my roommate next year!). Again, nothing big, but I haven't had a lot of time this summer so doing anything social is kind of big for me.
Before we move on... I don't know about you, but one of my favorite aspects about blogging is being able to read back through my posts and see what I was doing, how I was writing, what food I was obsessed with, etc. weeks ago, months ago, and even years ago. It's rather like an online journal. That was one of the reasons I decided to pick it back up again and is why I'm going to try to keep with it for as long as I can. Anyway, just wanted to get that out! On to that wonderful afternoon that I now have a record of...
I picked up my friend at her house, and then we headed to lunch! We ate at this cute little sandwich shop, and I ordered the half greek salad/half vegetarian combo. They were both amazing! The salad had a light, delicious dressing and the sandwich had soft, somewhat chewy bread and an outstanding creamy garlic (I think) spread.
After lunch, we walked around town and stopped in a store called the Peppercorn. It's a kitchen store so you better believe I didn't leave empty handed. This accompanied home:
1) It scooped my favorite food.
2) It was miniature (I cave for anything mini).
3) It was under $2.
4) Um, did you notice how adorable the cow is?
Clearly there was no way I could turn it down.
It was a super hot day so we decided to get something to drink. We had walked into Starbucks when we turned to look out the window and saw a juice and smoothie shop. Sorry, Starbucks. I love you, but you just don't cut it when juices and smoothies walk into the picture. Don't worry, I will back to you soon. Everything looked amazing, but I decided to try a veggie juice since there are no juice shops where I live (I think I'd only had a veggie juice once before in some random airport?). I went with the lemon zinger that contained lemon, ginger, kale, carrots, and spirulina. I was a little skeptical, but all I could really taste was the lemon. It was so refreshing! My friend even tried it and liked it!
What was the last fun thing you did with a friend?
Do you enjoy reading back through your old posts?
