Hey shorty, it's your Birthday.......It's my BFF's Birthday!!!!! We stopped aging after 25 so every year is just more experience!!!!! This year, we decided to take you all with us as we made a day of it!!!!!
We been friends for years and years....... I mean technically Kate is my wombmate, but Jen's been by our side for just as long!!!! We taken this exact same pic for years and years!!!! Even before digital we were snapping this same pose with film!!!
A couple of weeks before, we sent Jen an oh so official invite text.......
We started our day with Starbucks!!! A coffee must for our group!!! What do you normally order!!! My order is of course "Extra"......I get a Venti Double Cupped Americano with 2 pumps vanilla and room for cream. I add my own half and half from their coffee station!!!! I like my coffee on the light tan side so I just add the cream myself!!!!
Ive been told that Americanos are suppose to be double cupped already, but I always ask for it!!! Again a little "extra"
Next stop....IKEA......it's like a train station of all
things I love......at every turn there is home decor, bits and bobs!!!! Oh we could just get lost in this store!!! My BFF loves the cinnamon rolls!!!! Has anyone else ever tried!!!! They are so so good.....or so I'm told.....I can't eat because of the gluten, but they look divine!!!
I just don't want to leave!!!!!!!!
On to the surprise portion of our trip!!!! It was Boxing Day so we decided to make a stop by Lululemon!!!!!! Clearance racks were calling our name!!!! January is turning into the month of the serpa so......if you can beat them.....join them!!!!! And let's throw in a Scrunchie just because we wore them all the time as kids!!!!!! Scruchies were like the big bows of the 1990s!!! Anyone agree!!!!????
Next and last stop!!! Cheesecake Factory for lunch!!!! Our favorite!!!! This day....of all days....the CO2 machine was frozen because of the extreme cold!!!! My sis and BFF are SODA drinkers......I thought we were going to have tears, very pitiful huge alligator tears,.....but luckily the lemonade had to do!!!!! I actually highly recommend the lemonade- delicious!!!!!
We ordered food to spilt!!! We are plate sharers!!!! Edamame, Herb Crusted Salmon, and Cobb Salad (no croutons) with Ranch!!! Little bit of trivia- even before I stopped eating gluten, I didn't like croutons on salads!!! They would get all soggy and totally grossed me out!!!! Croutons alone- yummy...... but NOT with salad dressing!!! My sis and BFF agree!!!! That's prob why we've been friends for over 30 years.....did I just give away my age.....lol!!!!
We ended our day here....Momma life called......we only get a few precious hours away before we have to get back but......there is something so refreshing when I get to spend time with my besties!!!! It's good for my soul!!!! Do any of you have any traditions with friends!!!!Hope you enjoyed our day......we sure did!!!!!
