last minute shopping tour~~~~

Bad (-1 point for each) : none
Good (1 point for each):
  • A long talk to mom (even I'm going to see her in less than 72 hs.)
  • Gifts for Dad and uncle.
Sum: 2
I had a good sleep last night, woke up feeling fabulous!!! Then, after breakfast I called my mom with last updates about my packing and gifts. I wanted to buy more gifts for my family (although my bags are already full) but didn't know what to buy. My dearest mom told me that my Dad loves the polo T-shirt I bought him last year, so I changed my plan of another leisure/lazy day for shopping. I spent all day long doing shopping, from one store to another. Results? 2 t-shirts for my Dad, 1 t-shirt for my uncle; two new bowls for me ;) and some cosmetics for me too!!!! ^_^ I was pretty tired when I got home. Shopping is fun, but too much isn't.

okay. Some eats! (not very exciting, because of the shopping tour, I didn't have a real meal until dinner).
Breakfast was pretty good
  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1/2 cup soy milk
  • 1/2 banana
  • vanilla + cinnamon + flax meal
  • 1/3 cup whole vanilla french yogurt
  • 1/2 cup blackberries

This combo deserves a Holy Yum~~~~~~ ^_^
After I talked to mom and decided to head to shopping, I munched a blueberry muffin first
and then packed an apple and a muffin sandwich with chocolate PB as lunch, because I was going alone and I wouldn't eat alone at the food court (that's too sad. But shopping alone isn't. Actually I think sometimes I prefer doing it alone!)
Back home around 4pm I prepared a good snack with one of my new bowl: fage+raspberries+kamut puffs.I had also a handful of almonds.I was going to have dinner with a friend who's moving to Houston for work. But when he called me he said some other friends of him (who I don't know) are inviting him for dinner and if I wanted to join them. I didn't want to go a dinner with most strangers, so I proposed to have a coffee with him alone before his dinner so we can have a better talk.
Back home, I craved a REAL meal. So I made a portbello pizzagrilled tofu and some frozen veggies. Oh... and the other half can of split peas soup.
Dessert: muffin!!! I didn't realize that I was leaving on Monday when I bought them (6) yesterday, so I'm having them as snack and dessert. I don't complain about it though since it's really good. I like that it's small in size, very moist, and not so sweet! (I bought them in Tj's)

Tomorrow is my last day before I flight home. My plan is to do some workout (I haven't workout for two days and my body is asking me for it), finish packing and to be excited!!!!!

I hope everyone had a good Saturday, got all the gifts and have everything set for the holiday!

Glad you found stuff for your daddy! I bet the lunch you packed was better than anything you would get at the food court anyway. ;)

how psyched are you to go home? i hope you have a safe and wonderful trip!

btw - does your family ever ask you to bring back vitamins? whenever i go back to taiwan, my family always asks to bring vitamins - since they're about 2 or 3x the cost they are here.

Pearl: I don't bring vitamins because my family don't have them, they use another magical supplement. I say magical because it cures everything, from heart problem to skin. ^_^

Looks great. Glad you did some good shopping! I bet your bags are heavy! :) I actually weighed mine before I took them to the airport when I was coming back from India. Mine was 60KG. Hard to believe!! :) Love those TJ muffins! We are actually bowl shopping as well. :) Where did you get yours?
