You know what is one more wonderful thing about having Hailey? Mom likes to visit more often! She says she needs to get her Hailey fix, so it means a day full of girl time, starting with breakfast.
Toast topped with herbed goat cheese, baby spinach and a farm fresh egg.
We followed up the morning by driving over to walk through a nearby neighborhood. Having company and a change of scenery made an hour go by quickly!
I snacked on plain (2%) Chobani topped with Love Grown Granola and a drizzle of honey during Hailey’s nap and enjoyed chatting with mom. Then, off to lunch!
We went to BluStar Grill (which is quickly becoming a favorite lunch spot of mine). I had the spinach salad with avocado, cucumbers, tomato, blue cheese, bacon crumbles, egg with a citrus vinaigrette and a corn muffin.
Hailey has avocado, a sweet potato fry, cucumber and a little Monterey jack cheese. She liked it all, despite the squency face.
After lunch, we headed out to the mall. I stocked up on new bronzer (Laura Mercier – thanks for the suggestions!) and we spent a lot of time wandering through Anthropologie. I want to live in that store. We wore ourselves out and needed a snack.
I went with the new Greek frozen yogurt (I think it’s delicious- honey vanilla!) topped with blueberries, mango, raspberries, blackberries and mochi. I asked my facebook friends what mochi was and the consensus is that it’s some derivative of sticky rice? Oh, it’s so good!
Hailey enjoyed some mango, blueberries and raspberries before we jetted off to Josh’s Farmers Market to pick up some veggies for dinner.
Whew- after a busy day, it was time to winedown.
2 glasses of wine were consumed with good conversation and a delicious meal!
Grilled corn, grilled asparagus, roasted zucchini, squash, red pepper, onion and carrots (all LOCALLY grown- yay for farmers market season!) and a deeeeeeee-freaking-licious New York strip. Have I mentioned the pescatarian challenge is over? More on that later.
Have you ever had mochi?
What’s your favorite TCBY topping?
I love mochi and fruit, though adding cookie dough is sometimes enticing, too
