Tis another Monday — are you ready for it? I don’t mind them so much mostly because I thrive on routine and anything that keeps me busy throughout the day is a plus in my book. Besides, I had a pretty good weekend
It started with dinner with friends on Friday night at a (new to me place) Mario’s in Mountain View. This place is tucked away and you’d have no idea it was here unless word of mouth helped ya out. The food was great. I mean, how can you not love a place that offers you piping hot, doughy, cheesy garlic bread a minute after entering? I was a bad blogger and didn’t snap pics, but trust me when I say my personal pizza topped with onions and jalapenos was De-lish. We will definitely be back.
Saturday was spent with my friend Rachel bracing the crazy torrential downpours (never happens in Cali in June) and shopping at the Gilroy outlets, which I hadn’t been to in close to 5 years.
Well, you know I have a minor addiction when it comes to shoes, right?
I had no luck on my shopping excursion Friday after work so I was definitely ready to make some purchases Saturday. The result: no shoes. None. I found some potentially cute shoes at Nine West, but they weren’t the black sandals I was looking for for work and they weren’t a new pair of brown or gold gladiators to replace my other ones that lost a stone on top.
BUT, I prevailed and found a pretty darn cute pair on Endless.com that I purchased yesterday AM They’ll be showing up on Shoes-Day soon!
Finding shoes at the outlet mall was a bust, but finding purses was not. I think I have a new addiction:
There may or may not be a 3rd purse lurking around too I needed a small black purse that I could stick in my carry-on for when I travel for work and then, I’ve been on the lookout for a great pink purse for ages. It fit the bill. And a few ladies in the store were coveting it, but I got the last one. (Sorry, I’m not sorry).
I think I now have proof of a brewing coffee addiction (haha, ya like my pun ):
Since I couldn’t leave Marshalls empty handed on Friday, I acquired my latest coffee addition – peanut butter cup. Oh yes, yes it exists and it smells like pure goodness. I can’t wait to open it. Also from Marshalls is the Vermont maple nut (to die for) and the raspberry chocolate. The chocolate macadamia is from Kauai; the Shenandoah Joe’s from Charlottesville; and the turtle from World Market. The question is, how long will it take for me to go through all of this?
When I was doing a little baking yesterday, I determined that these could easily become a new addiction:
I’ll post the baked products later this week (oh and Zach’s coworkers, if you’re reading, you should see them in the office today! Hunt him down and make him share!)
Tell me, what are your addictions? shoes? purses? granola bars? jeans? cocktail rings (<—that’s one of mine too)
