It was our last Saturday before school started. First Saturday after vacation so we needed it badly. What ever would we do to get ready for the time of stress? Use all the gift cards we got from Christmas. We slept in until 11am, and probably could have slept longer, but got up and got started.
Karl’s mom re-gifted me a Starbucks gift card.
Oh, yeah I forgot to take pictures until the end of the day, but I thought just writing about it would be boring, so I inserted pictures… from the Internet, enjoy. The cool thing about breakfast, was that we ended up seeing our friend Randall there. Karl got a Dulce cinnamon hot chocolate with a plain bagel. He had a blueberry crumb muffin for dessert. As for me, I had a caramel steamer and a cheese bagel. I had a maple pecan scone for dessert. Plus we had 5 dollars left on the gift card after that. Thanks mom!
Not unlike this one, except Grandma Regina was more generous, as always.
We ended up buy a corded dremel, for all of our craft cutting needs. Very exciting. Grandma Regina, thanks!
Anyway… we did it right. We got drinks, calamari (a dish that I had never tried until I met Karl and he introduced it to me at Carino’s, now one of my favorite things) and for dinner,
Well what else? The Penne Gorgonzola, only the best thing on the menu. I also like the Baked Tortellini. Still, no matter what I order, and no matter how good it is, I always wished I had bought the Penne Gorg.
It was from my only niece Gaby. Isn’t it totally awesome?!
It’s call Sephora Favorites. It is this really cool box set of 7 deluxe mini bottles of perfume.
It includes: Doir; Addicted Shine, Juicy Couture; Juicy, DKNY; Be Delicious, Givenchy; Very Irresistible Givenchy, Ralph Lauren; Romance, Stell Mc Cartney; Stell, and Marc Jacobs; Daisy. But it doesn’t end there. When you decided which one you like the best, there is a certificate inside for a free full sided bottle of the perfume of your choice! This was such an awesome gift. Thanks Gabi!
Thanks to all again for the fab Christmas, and the great day we were able to spend together. We love all of you!
