Tidbits of the day
After slaving over a hot stove half the day yesterday, the girls and I treated ourselves to a day of shopping in the big city today.
Chelsea had birthday money burning a hole in her pocket, and Hannah needed a day of retail therapy. Kayla, my niece, joined us, too, as she usually does for our annual shop-and-dine-for-Chelsea’s-birthday event.
It’s funny, without planning to, all four of us ended up in the baby section of the stores at the same time. This happened twice. Just proves little Clay-bug is never far from our thoughts!
But we had fun, and I actually bought myself a couple of new things to wear, which doesn’t happen often.
I know, you can tell.
Anyway, the store I wish could bring to Irvine—and wish I could afford to do ALL my grocery shopping from—is the Good Foods Co-op and Café on Southland Drive.
I like that the store is pretty small and that it smells like grocery stores used to—more like real food, I guess.
To top off the day—Misty May and Kerri Walsh won the gold medal in women’s beach volleyball for the third straight Olympics! We saw it happen all three times, and I got a little emotional to think the old gals don’t plan to be back in 2016.
Maybe they’ll change their mind before then—they definitely looked tough!
