Mom and I braved the crowds at the mall yesterday (aren’t we supposed to be in a recession? Sure doesn’t look like it at all). Looks like Christmas has come a little early this year.

Photo teaser! You’ll have to make your way through the rest of the post for more

I started my Saturday like any other – by sleeping in and making a leisurely breakfast. All while enjoying some figure skating on TV.

When I have time, oatmeal always seems to make it on the menu.

  • 1/3 cup oats, almond milk, water
  • 1 tbsp Ruth’s Chia Goodness cereal
  • 2 dried figs, chopped
  • dried cranberries
  • splash of vanilla
  • peanut butter swirl
  • Artisana Cacao Bliss

With the last of the Oasis Pomegranate Berry juice.

Once all that food was ingested and skating was over, we made our big trek to the mall, as well as the grocery store. By the time we got home, it was after 3 pm! Doh! I had to find lunch stat.

Good thing we had leftover Veggie Mediterranean pizza. Didn’t even bother to heat it up!

Then I was having a total chocolate craving. My dad brought this chocolate bar.

So I had a square…or two.

I had hoped to go out in the evening, since my parents were having a bunch of their friends over, but alas, I couldn’t get ahold of anyone to see if they were up for doing something, so I spent the evening in my pj’s doing pretty much nothing. And I didn’t even get around to eating dinner until almost 10 pm…what’s up with that?!

I made myself a little sandwich – turkey, ham, cheddar cheese, spinach on these little sourdough buns we found at the grocery store.

Then I dug into the appetizers that were in the kitchen 🙂

A wee little spinach quiche.

And my favourite – Tex-Mex dip with the best tortilla chips.

fffs_lp 798

Oh, I definitely had seconds on that dip.

fffs_lp 795

And guess what? There was dessert as well! I had a wee slice of this rum soaked pound cake with a touch of whipped cream, grapes, and cantaloupe.

fffs_lp 800

I was glad the cake didn’t taste too rummy – not exactly my favourite flavour. But it was super moist.

I mostly hid out in my bedroom all evening, goofing around on the interweb. It’s true, I was a total hermit on a Saturday night. Oh well, sometimes that’s just how it goes, right? And even though I had plenty of time to post last night, I just didn’t feel the writing urge.

Okay, okay…want to see my fancy new boots?

Can I just say, the boot shopping experience was tough! I tried to get boots made in Canada, but the only decent pair I could find didn’t fit in the heel at all (I have a narrow heel compared to the rest of my foot). And then, trying to find boots that fit my giant size 10 feet without making them look like skis was a whole other issue. I tried on this super cute pair of moccasin style boots, but OMG – they made my feet look insanely huge. My mom and I joked I could go out snowshoeing in them without the snowshoes. LOL.

Now I can go to school without getting soaking wet feet, and still look somewhat stylish – since I’m such a fashionista and all.

The rain has stopped, so I think I’m going to head out for a walk. Later gators.

    I LOVE those boots. I am desperate for a new pair boots and hoping to get a pair on the day after Thanksgiving.

    Those look super cute! Today I was looking for all black shoes for my new job and this one pair made my feet look huge too! I thought that was pretty funny since that just happened to me too.

    Your oatmeal always looks so delicious! How do you get the coconut butter to be like that? I always scoop it out with a spoon so it’s in chunks more.

    Those are awesome boots! I almost bought boots this weekend too, but they didn’t have my size… might be making a second shopping trip sometime this week. 😉

    I never re-heat pizza. I prefer the leftover’s cold!

    Great boots! Looks like they’ll be nice and comfy.
