A Wonderful Day...And Some Shopping

Hello everyone

Good evening all !!!!!! How was your Saturday ? I hope you all had as wonderful a day as I did. My folks and I and my two niece's just returned from being out all day. Our day began early this morning at a restaurant called "Maggiano's Little Italy" here is the link to the restaurant ---> . The breakfast buffet they had was wonderful and delicious. They had bacon, scrambled eggs, croissants, french toast with bananas, watermelon, cantaloupe and grapes which was quite good. The reason we were at the restaurant was because there was an MS Conference being held there. My mom happens to have MS which is Multiple Sclerosis which is an autoimmune disease. The restaurant is located by Perimeter Mall which we did go to after the conference. Here is a link ---->

Anwho....later after the mall my folks and I and my niece's went to a store called "Shoe Carnival" where I ended up buying my youngest niece Megan and I each a pair of tennis shoes. I bought a pair of Asics grey tennis shoes which I really really like. My niece Megan got a pair of black tennis shoes which fit her good. After the shoe store we ended up going to Belk's where I did some looking around. I didn't buying anything in Belk's but it was fun.

After Belk's we then went to my favorite favorite favorite bookstore "Barnes & Noble". I ended up buying three different books titled "The Secret Diaries of Charlotte Bronte" by Syrie James, "The Secret of Lost Things" by Sheridan Hay" and of course I bought the J.K. Rowling book "Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows". I used my Barnes & Noble card to get a discount on my books. I always like going to Barnes & Noble its always fun going there and getting books that I have NEVER read before. Here is a link to the bookstore --->

After the bookstore we went for dinner at "La Parrilla" Mexican restaurant. The food is always good there. I ended up having the half order of the Nacho's with shredded chicken, melted cheese dip and beans which was quite good. I ordered a strawberry Mojito which was on the special but it had a little bit of a bitter taste so I gave it to my mom which she drank. I did have her frozen Margarita which was good.

After dinner we stopped off at Walmart where my dad bought my niece Megan a green chair that she liked. I also bought her some stickers she wanted. Shopping wore me out today and its fun to get home to rest for a while. It was quite a day.

So how was your day my dear world ? I hope all is well in your neck of the woods. Did you do any shopping today ? Do enjoy your Sunday tomorrow. If you don't hear from me tomorrow just know that I am resting up and taking it easy. I'll talk to you all later.
