It’s been a fabulous Friday! Any Friday that starts a three-day weekend is bound to be good, but this one was fun all on its own as well. I went on two dates with the husband, spent the afternoon at the mall with some friends, and ate lots of tasty food.
Lots and lots of tasty food.
We had errands to run this morning and while at Wegman’s we purchased chocolate croissants. fatty pro tip – the best chocolate croissants in town are at Wegman’s bakery
We walked with the dog to Starbucks for espresso. A doppio with skim milk and sugar.
Then we breakfasted on croissants and espresso in the sunlight. It was just as wonderful as it sounds. We finished our grocery shopping on foot, with the dog, with a sweet espresso buzz, and felt very European.
I spent my afternoon with two friends at the mall. We also went to The Christmas Tree Store (which sells discounted products and actually no Christmas trees) which was ironic because when Janessa and I went to the mall originally we got so lost that we ended up at The Christmas Tree Store, i.e. about as far away from the mall as you could possibly get. It was beyond pathetic. We were 45 minutes late to meet Kim and laughing so hard that we cried.
When we finally made it to Galleria we rewarded our superior navigation skills with froyo. I had coconut and plain tart with tons of strawberry and mango boba.
This was both of my friends’ first times trying self-serve froyo and popping boba and thankfully they were big fans.
I didn’t do much shopping at the mall but I did see many cute items; lots of lace things to covet! And I purchased a pretty plate from Anthropologie that was 50% reduced. Buffalo people – Anthro currently has lots of reduced-price stuff on the main floor in addition to the sale room.
At home I ate slice of cheese pizza leftover from yesterday’s lunch.
And a coffee yogurt with roasted peanuts and honey.
This combo has been one of my favorites since I was a young child.
Date number two was a walk down Elmwood. It wasn’t an aimless amble, we had a very specific destination in mind –
Chow Chocolat for iced hot chocolates!
I got peanut butter and Adam got salted caramel and we switched halfway through.
The drinks were made-to-order with real chocolate and were rich but not too sweet. They were heavenly.
Dinner was a toss-together.
I boiled six-cheese tortellini with a frozen green bean and carrot mix, then tossed the cooked past and veggies with marinara sauce. Nothing special but it did the job.
I left behind the last quarter or so of my portion because I’m going to tuck into a biiiiiig bowl of popcorn as soon as this post is up.
Pop… pop… pop!
