On a Mission

by Meghann on December 22, 2009

This afternoon I was on a mission.

A mission to finally check out the new Lululemon Outlet that recently opened in Orlando.


On the way over I was cranky and hungry stuck in traffic. I had to retrieve this True Delights bar from the depths of my bag to save my sanity.


The Lululemon Outlet was a bit smaller than I had imagined.


I was a little disappointed by the limited selection of styles and sizes. Most things I tried on were a bit too big.


BUT, I did find a few things I liked and you can’t beat that outlet price. πŸ˜‰



I walked out with a bag full of goodies. (love their reusable bags!)


Mission accomplished!

I SHOULD have started packing after my successful mission, but I thought it would be much more fun to meet Katy, Ryan, and Ashley for dinner at Dandellion – a local vegan, hippie restaurant.


I started with the ice tea of the day, but was not a fan at all.



The flavor was much too buttery for my taste. I found myself struggling to finish it.


Luckily the meal was much better than the drink.


I ordered the β€˜Giddy Up” which was basically chili and cheese sauce over lettuce.


With a side of Hummus.


Delicious! But next time I would ask for the cheese sauce on the side.;)

Katy was kind enough to bring bags of Christmas cookies.



I had two for dessert.


Part of me is going to miss all the Christmas Cookies, but the other part will be happy to see them go. I think I have been sweet obsessed lately.

Maddie was shivering when I came home. She was very happy to have her winter coat to keep her warm.


She looks so prim and proper in her coat! πŸ™‚

Seeing as I haven’t even slightly begun to pack yet, tomorrow is going to be a bit insane. Nothing like waiting until the last minute to get things done! Right? πŸ˜‰

I’m leaving tomorrow, too. And I am VERY behind on packing. Good luck!

So fun meeting up, let’s hang out again once Christmas craziness is over. Hope you enjoy the cookies, but I totally know what you mean. My sweet tooth needs to seriously calm down.

The end of the Christmas goodies will be bittersweet for me, too…I’m digging all the goodies my co-workers have been bringing in, but once I start sampling the goods it’s hard to keep the cookie-eating in check. πŸ˜‰

You look bangin’ in that yellow jacket! And Maddie looks precious in her little jacket πŸ™‚

6 Sarah W. December 22, 2009 at 11:27 pm

omg I LOVE the shape of that jacket!! and the shorts and tank are adorable!!!

would you mind divulging the prices you paid? i’m curious as to how outlet prices compare to regular.

I managed to snag a $52 tank for $40 during a Black Friday sale…….otherwise I pay full price for the pants which are like $80 something and the tanks/shorts/skirts are $53-54.

wish I had an outlet! you can also sell used lululemon on ebay for a decent price since the stuff holds up so well

email me prices if you like

7 Meghann December 23, 2009 at 6:24 am

THe tank was $19, Shorts $29 and jacket $49! BIG price difference! πŸ™‚

8 Sarah W. December 23, 2009 at 11:25 am

omg I wish I had an outlet near me – those prices are amazing!!! kind of like you robbed the store πŸ˜‰

9 Danielle December 22, 2009 at 11:28 pm

I agree with everyone else- LOVE the yellow jacket!

10 Alyson December 22, 2009 at 11:32 pm

Oh my goodness, I didn’t know they had Lululemon Outlets! This is reason enough to make a Florida trip :p

11 Anne P December 22, 2009 at 11:33 pm

So sad I missed the fun outing πŸ™ That place sounds really tasty! Looking forward to seeing you on the 26th πŸ™‚

12 Meg December 22, 2009 at 11:35 pm

Dinner and cookies look fun and delicious! Maddie’s sweater is absolutely adorable. Happy holidays πŸ™‚

13 Erin December 22, 2009 at 11:40 pm

Aw, that coat is precious! Love all the veggie restaurants you seem to have in Orlando – definitely more than here in DC.

14 Lily @ Lily's Health Pad December 22, 2009 at 11:40 pm

I agree about Christmas treats. Don’t get me wrong, I love sweets, but I think I’m overloaded right now.

15 Amy December 22, 2009 at 11:42 pm

I’m in the same boat- look at me blogging instead of packing! It’s like I’m purposely making my tomorrow morning miserable…

16 Sarah December 22, 2009 at 11:51 pm

Man, you sure do a lot of shopping for yourself around the holidays! It’s a good thing all of your other shopping got done!

17 alyssa December 22, 2009 at 11:58 pm

OMG that yellow jacket! Love.

18 Katie O. @ Fit to Wed December 23, 2009 at 12:02 am

A lululemon outlet? Sooo jealous! Everything looked fantastic on you!

19 Nicci December 23, 2009 at 12:09 am

20 goodtastehealthyme December 23, 2009 at 12:13 am

21 jenna December 23, 2009 at 12:15 am

22 Tasha - The Clean Eating Mama December 23, 2009 at 12:30 am

Wow! The yellow jacket looks soo good on you! And Maddie is adorable, as always!

23 Christy December 23, 2009 at 12:30 am

I’ve wanted to try Dandellion for a while now! I always forget about it when it’s time to pick a place to eat πŸ˜•

24 Rachel December 23, 2009 at 12:36 am

Aww, you look especially cute in the yellow jacket. Seems like a hit! And Maddie is so cute πŸ™‚

25 caronae December 23, 2009 at 1:03 am

Ugh, I have to pack tomorrow morning too! I love the yellow shirt!

26 Amy December 23, 2009 at 1:06 am

Oh wow! I am a Lululemon FREAK!! I’ve had that same pair of charcoal grey/antidote shorts you had on in my cart ten times over but I hate ordering online and not knowing what size to buy, especially since I don’t want the short to be too tight and clingy. Would you mind telling me if the size if true to size. Did you need to size up/down for those shorts? I’m an 8 but I thought if I got the 10 it would be roomier. But last time I tried that with Lululemon, the pants fell right off! Any info on sizing would be great. They looked great on you by the way =)

Right now Lululemon online is offering free overnight shipping. SO dangerous!!

27 Meghann December 23, 2009 at 6:25 am

The sizes are soo off! I went in with a friend telling me everything ran small so I tried on things that were larger then my normal size and they were too big, but somethings fit just right.

28 Chelsea December 23, 2009 at 1:44 am

Lululemon outlet *swoon* I can’t bring myself to pay the prices but i may if it was outlet prices! =D

29 RunToTheFinish December 23, 2009 at 7:48 am

30 Lindsay @ lindsayruns December 23, 2009 at 8:27 am

31 Quinn December 23, 2009 at 8:54 am

Maddie is so freakin adorable! I never know what to do with my dog when I leave the house for a couple hours and it’s cold inside. Luckily that doesn’t happen often here but I hate coming home to a shivering puppy!
