Weekend Update - MidSeptember

Cannot believe it's already past mid September. Where did the time go?! I'm amazed.

My mom's birthday is today!! Happy Birthday Mom. Miss you and hope you are having a fabulous day!!! Would you please stop ignoring me on Skype?! Thank you.
*wish she would read my post. She doesn't. But wording it out helps a lot.

{Linking up with Leeann, Sami and Dana today!}

My weekends always start on Thursday after 12.30pm so when I link up to the weekend update I have to consider this day as well. I was picked up by my friend S. We both went to college together years ago, were even living together and after graduation went separate ways. I had to return to Europe, she stayed in California and is now married. Glad we both are back in the same state, and finally got to meet again. I missed our lunch dates. We usually would go out for lunch and discover new or old places and have a fun time - including some shopping!

This time we went to Old Vine Cafe in Costa Mesa.

My smoked salmon omelet was fabulous!
My friend got a pizza omelet which of course I forgot to take a picture of. Blog fail!

And of course, after lunch we headed out and did some shopping at South Coast Plaza, and Metro Pointe. I bought nothing which could be seen as either a total failure on my part or a win because I saved money.
I left Nordstrom Rack without a new item. WOW.
I left DSW and Barnes and Noble without an item. WOW.

You be the judge.
Good or bad?!

Not much else happened on Friday. I stayed home all day. Slept in, watched TV, read a book (not for school), went to the pool to read some more in the shade though it was TOO hot so I went inside again. 100+ degrees is too much for September. Hello? It's fall, cool down a little even here in beautiful California. Thank you. 

Saturday pretty much looked the same. Then, spontaneously, a friend (my roommate's BFF, we again all went to college together - I think I had a little reunion going!) drove down for a bridal dress hunt. I say hunt because that's how it felt like. We went to three different places all within the area, she tried on numerous beautiful and less beautiful dresses on and then we had dinner. No dress was the right dress. I had my favorites. I am though also not the one getting married. 

Before I forget, I think Blush Bridal Couture in Tustin was the best Bridal Shop we went to that day. I'm sure there are other placess you guys like more or prefer and this is totally fine. Of all the places we went Saturday that was the best in my opinion! They let you take pictures, too. ;) Just saying.  
For a few pictures go to Marjan's blog, she posted the pictures I took that day.

We went to Panini Cafe for dinner!
It's not my kind of restaurant (I like it unique, authentic and non-chain/non-commercialized) but it is a spot I consider to return to.

Oh and I received my first VoxBox from Influenster - now I'm testing and using things...I can already tell you what I like or not like at all. Stay tuned for a review ;)

Happy Monday.

Happy Birthday to your Mom!

I went to DSW recently and didn't buy anything. The Husband asked me if I was sick. ;)

That omelette dish looks delicious!

Happy Birthday to your Mom! And I think it's great that you went shopping without shopping! That is always helpful :)

Mandy@OrangeAutumn said...

Smoked salmon omelette? That sounds awesome! Looks like you had a good weekend. Sometimes not finding anything when you shop is OK, that means you can spend even more money next time, right? ;)

Leeann @ Join the Gossip said...

Leeann @ Join the Gossip said...

I had never heard of vox box before. I just googled it, and that's totally awesome. I really wanted one of those services for my birthday, but none of them ship to Cambodia. That's awesome that they're free. I'll have to sign up!
