|Tad’s BLT and lobster bisque|
Carytown is full of awesome shopping, so we spent the afternoon popping in and out of stores. Some of my favorites were Penzeys Spices (stocked up on some Italian herbs…okay, all of them…), For the Love of Chocolate (bought a few little fancy chocolates to try), Second Debut by Goodwill (I found a fab Pottery Barn pillow for $9), Ruth & Ollies (inspiring home decor), Clover (gorgeously decorated kid’s consignment store), and a kid’s store I can’t remember the name of (it had cloth diapers, wraps/slings/carriers, and tons of neat things!).
We, of course, had to get some cupcakes along the way! We visited Carytown Cupcakes, which was quite the hopping place due to a recent Groupon.

After our shopping spree, we went to Tad’s parents’ house for an awesome dinner! They made a great meal in celebration of Tad’s recent birthday. It was SO good! Vera enjoyed eating a sweet potato (she’s her Grammy’s girl!).
We just had the best time getting out of town for a little bit and enjoying spending quality time together.
