I told you I was going to be bringing this segment back! I haven't really done anything new in awhile, since you have to have money to do stuff, but today I got to go out with my bestie - the Young Retiree, AKA Elizabeth! The weather has been pretty crummy this last week, lot's of rain and wind.. but we were hoping for some good weather so we could hit up one of the outdoor malls. Eh, we kind of got it.. it was hit and miss today ((right now as I'm writing this, it's like a hurricane outside!))
Our first stop was Sprinkles. Have you ever watched "Cupcake Wars" on the Food Network? The head female judge on the show opened the first Cupcake Bakery in Beverly hills, Sprinkles. Well it's super popular and locations are popping up pretty much everywhere now, and it just so happens I live about 15 minutes from one. It's famous - so we had to try it :) Elizabeth had discovered that the lines for this place can be 2 hours long, what the what!? We decided to give it a try anyway. I'm so glad we did.
1/2 dozen - 2 red velvets, black and white, 1 vanilla with milk chocolate, and 2 dark chocolates
Next we headed to lunch (yes, we certainly did have dessert first!). Cheesecake factory!
Appetizer - Vietnamese Pork Taco's. My mouth is drooling just thinking about it..
I don't know why I didn't take pictures of Elizabeth eating her food, cause hers looked amazing too!
After lunch we walked over to Bloomingdales where we played "Name that price". Yeesh.
We had a blast, we always have a lot of fun when we get the chance to get together!!
