Shop til you drop is an understatement!  I am so tired from shopping that I need a nappy. 


But I had success in the dress department!


Honestly, the winner was not my favorite dress but the price was right, and I can wear it again.  I’m happy (and not broke).


Before we left, I fueled with a Chocolate Amazing Grass (with milk, a banana, and ice):


And while shopping I munched on this bar:


I did buy these sweet new sunglasses.  I feel very mod in them.


(That’s my mod face.)


I also posted this Operation Beautiful note:


My mom took me to this hole-in-the-wall joint for lunch.


The decor on the inside was… ahh.. interesting? (My mom looks kind of scared in this picture!)


But the food was really good!  I had a falafel:


And asked for the cucumber sauce on the side:


It was a really great falafel, but it kind of gave me a tummy ache (fried stuff usually does, so I’m not surprised). 


As mentioned, I’m going to go NAP!  Hey, it’s my vacation.  :)  And then we’re going on a hike/run (I love two-a-days).


Are you having an excellent Sunday, too?  I hope so!

    Can't wait to see the dress! Isn't it the best when you get a bargain on something you love and will wear again?! I think mom's are the lucky charm when it comes to shopping. I always find great stuff when I'm with her! 🙂

    I am having the hardest time with hills where we just moved. There were never hills where I lived in California!

    I'm glad you found a dress! I spent HOURS at the mall yesterday to find a dress for a semi-formal event this week and I too ended up with "no great, but not too much and I can wear it again."

    Ohhh. I love black house white market. They have some of the cutest things in there. Although since I will be wearing scrubs most of my life I have no need to shop there except for special occasion.

    Aww, I love falafel! But fried stuff does that to me too so I feel your pain 😉

    But it's what keeps me from eating fried foods most of the time so I guess it can be both a blessing and a curse.
