This weekend The Man and I hit the City to spend some time with Emma-Roo. We headed in Sunday morning and after picking up E.R. we stopped at the Starbucks/Chapters. We don’t have a Starbucks (or a Chapters) outside the City (oh, we’re all Tim Horton’s folk up here) so it’s nice to go in on occasion and have a treat. My favorite drink is the Peppermint Frappe made with non-fat milk. It is so yummy and I only get it like, maybe once a month (if that) so I figure, why not indulge. It was delicious.
After scoping out several books in Chapters I came out with a few goodies. Andrew Pyper is an author that I thoroughly enjoyed, even tho I’ve only read one of his books. It was called Lost Girls and I pined after this book for the longest time until I finally received it as a Christmas gift from my wonderful S-I-L and brother more than 10 years ago. It scared the shizz outta me (that’s what I get for reading a scary book at midnight) but it was a really good read and I’ve always wanted to read more of his work. Thankfully, I saw his book The Guardians was on the discount shelf so I snatched it up. Way to go, me!
I also picked up this healthy food book, which I’ve flipped thru but am looking forward to exploring.
And on the way out the door, after paying for my items, I spotted Bazaar with my girl Drew on the cover so I grabbed it and ran back to the line. I am a Drew Barrymore fanatic and usually pick up any magazine with her beautiful face featured on it.
hounding sweet-talking The Man into detouring to the mall so I could hit H&M I was finally able to pick up the top I’ve been thinking about the last couple of weeks (https://welcometosandyland.wordpress.com/2013/01/28/here-kitty-kitty/). I wore it today with a pair of black un-cut cords I bought in, like 1998 (they’re the closest thing I’ll ever get to skinny jeans), a black tuxedo jacket and the black stiletto booties The Man bought me for Christmas. My hair was a little unruly with its curls this morning so I’m in full-on Rock Star mode. My co-worker even commented that I look pretty sharp today. And then she gushed over the kitty face on my shirt. I mean, let’s be realistic….it’s adorable.
After our book and coffee shop stop and our detour to the mall we took Emma-Roo to a movie. We saw Warm Bodies which was pretty funny. E.R. and I laughed a lot and Blair didn’t fall asleep so he must have liked it too.
All-in-all it was a good Sunday spent in the City. I always love these days…the travel, the different scenery, the many options that aren’t always available outside the City (I saw that like we’re a bunch of hicks…we’re not. I promise.), and of course, it’s always great to spend time with the family.
