Winter Magic

December 23, 2010

I had one of those magical days filled with shopping, eating and enjoying yesterday.


It started with a super simple bowl of oats because A) I was in a hurry and B) I woke up with zero appetite.

Banana whipped oats with 1/3 cup oats & 1/3 of a banana.

Topped with homemade peanut butter and dried cranberries.

And with breakfast finished I was off to meet my mom and sister at their place.  Then we headed to Starbucks and hit the road.

I attempted to take a picture of myself drinking my grande soy caramel brulee latte.  I almost got my entire head in the picture.

Guess where we went.

The Coach Outlet, of course.  AND the 30% off deal was still going on.  The outlet has such good prices that it becomes really difficult to pick just one bag.

See what I mean?

There’s at least 6 bags in this picture.  They finally narrowed it down to one each and left happy with their decisions 🙂

Obviously, we stopped at our favorite lunch spot before heading home.

Uddiiii’s.  I think you can already guess what I got.

But I did change it up and got some tortilla soup on the side.  It was pretty darn good and I ate every bite of the soup and the sandwich, the other half of which was eaten by Beanie.

I knew I needed a good hearty lunch because we weren’t eating dinner till much later.  And all because we had a show to attend!

Trans Siberian Orchestra!

It was quite the show.

It was more like a rock concert than an orchestra concert, if you ask me.

And lots of cool lights and Christmas songs.

After the show we had dinner at Venice which has a lovely view of the train station across the street.

It was one of those long slow dinners where everyone just takes their time and enjoys themselves (I hope I’m not just speaking for myself) and while the food was delicious, I think the company and conversation was better 🙂

I’m ready to sink into a coma of holiday happiness and get a good night’s sleep.

I’ll leave you with this enticing picture of our porch because Joey’s pretty upset I haven’t posted one yet.

Good night, dear friends.

    Looks like you had an amazing day! Just for the record, I too would have a really hard time choosing among all those 30% off bags at Coach…it’s like choosing your favorite (theoretical) child. It can’t be done!
