Intergenerational Shopping

August 6, 2009

Shopping was fun! Gram took us to Loehmann’s, which has killer discounts and sales. I got a dress for the summit! And a cute clutch to match.

But boy did we come home worn out! We ate lunch at 2PM and were all so hungry that we couldn’t stop saying how delicious the food tasted.

Still not sure if I’m even full yet – I was hangry!

In grandmotherly fashion, Gram brought out some yummy looking cupcakes for dessert

Larbs and I split one, and it was surprisingly very good!

We are going mall walking and resting before we’re meeting the rest of the family to head into Baltimore for dinner.

Have a great Thursday y’all!

I love love love smoked salmon. Some of my best memories from growing up are of bagel breakfasts with chewy toasted bagels, cream cheese, and lox with my family. So good!

I loveeee the leftovers you get the day after a party. Yummy treats you probably wouldn’t normally get for lunch, plus you don’t have to cook!


3 Shannon (The Daily Balance) August 6, 2009 at 2:22 pm

sounds like a great day! Leftovers look fantastic and GO GRAMS on providing the cupcakes! 😉


4 Lauren August 6, 2009 at 2:28 pm

Wow! Holy food porn on that brie! mm-mmm


11 Megan (The Runner's Kitchen) August 6, 2009 at 2:52 pm

I love brie! Mmm, actually I love all cheeses. Fresh mozzarella makes me swoon a little :-) Sounds like you had a good lunch – food tastes best when you’re hungry!


12 Joanne August 6, 2009 at 2:56 pm

The lunch spread looks fantastic. Love Brie! But then I like it totally UN-healthy when it’s baked in pastry with some luscious fruit sauce.
Have a great time in Baltimore w/ family.


13 Chloe (Naturally Frugal) August 6, 2009 at 3:22 pm

MMMMM….a lunch full of seafood is my kind of lunch. I absolutely love smoked salmon and just might have to buy some this weekend.

Isn’t visiting with family fun?


14 Heather @ Health, Happiness, and Hope August 6, 2009 at 3:27 pm

19 Andee (Runtolive) August 6, 2009 at 4:18 pm

Yum! I love all the little tastings you have on your plate. Wile salmon is the best with a little cheese on top of crackers

34 Lauren August 6, 2009 at 7:31 pm

Wow, somehow I totally missed that you were in Baltimore. So cool! Baltimore is my home away from home. We live about an hour from the Harbor and love to take this day trip often.

Hope you are having a blast. How long will you be staying? Are you staying through the weekend by chance? Any blog meet ups planned? I would love to come and visit you!


35 Sarah August 6, 2009 at 7:39 pm

Oh, my husband would die over that O’s napkin. He is orioles obsessed-his #1 all time team which is weird since he has lived in NC all his life. Go figure!
