I was up at 5:00am this morning, in order to hit the mall at 6:00am! I have to say I love to shop! I love to shop for myself, I love to shop for other people and I especially love to shop on Black Friday and the day after Christmas! There’s something about fighting for the sales that just makes it so much fun. Of course I got a lot of great goodies, but I can’t share until after X-Mas!
Before we hit the mall I decided to make a real breakfast to give me shopping energy. I knew I would be burning a lot of calories with my ‘Shopping Cardio.‘
I cooked one egg in the microwave and put it on top of half of an onion bagel and some of my homemade cranberry sauce. On the side I had a fresh tangerine from the neighbors orchid.
While shopping I built up a HUGE appetite. I was basically starving the entire time, in fact I think I’m still hungry as I’m typing this. I did pack a couple of snacks in my purse to help me through it.
First I had a left over Congo Bar.
And a Green Apple.
I also snacked on a full sized cookie sample in World Market (No Picture) and enjoyed a Vanilla Chai Tea from Barnies.
I wanted my Pumpkin Spice tea from Starbucks, but all the lines were too long. I should have just waited, oh well.
We caved for lunch at 11:00! We were all pretty starving at this point. We went to this great Mexican Restaurant. My Sis and I decided to split a meal.
We started with some Chicken and Rice Soup.
and then shared The Veggie Fajitas.
I LOVE the variety of vegetables this place has in the Veggie Fajitas!
Now we’re finally home and I’m ready for a nap or maybe some of my Mom’s leftover Apple Pie. It’s so tempting sitting in the fridge, I may steal a little bite…. OK I think I just talked myself into it. I need to refuel after all of that ‘Shopping Cardio’ right? 🙂
