So that pretty bright yellow dress I ordered ended up not being so bright. In fact it was more of a mustardy, green yellow that made me look like death walking. It was shipped back immediately. On went the search. I was determined to not fall back on a black dress. I wanted something a little more fun for the wedding, but for some reason there seems to be a lot of dark colors this year. I hate the mall, but in desperation I ended up going yesterday and I'm glad I did because this is what I ended up with.

New Finds

Friday night, Michael and I had date night. Fortunately for us, we live in an area that is considered a test market so we usually have a lot of new things to try. There have been several new restaurants that have opened up lately so we decided to try a couple out.

For dinner we went to Brixx Pizza. It was amazing! It's more of a gourmet type pizza place so it was a nice change up. We thought there was going to be a long wait but luckily there were a lot of people who had kids there (who probably won't be back because I don't see kids liking this type of pizza) and we were able to walk right up to the bar and eat there. I had the Rustica with proscuitto, artichokes, mushrooms, kalamata olives, and roasted garlic. It was wonderful!

Next we went for dessert at Menchies. It's a self serve frozen yogurt place. I love being able to mix my own flavors and add in what I want. The other cool part is that you pay by the weight so you can get as much or as little as you want. I did a mix of pomegranate tart and classic tart with yogurt chips on top...yum!

Book Reviews

I have also finished a couple of books recently. The first was Hurry Down Sunshine by Michael Greenberg which was a memoir about his daughters breakdown. It included experiences from being in the mental hospital, to the difficulties of family, and the way his life changed.

I really thought I would relate to this book a little bit more since I have had these experiences myself. However since this particular girl was a minor I think his experiences with the hospital were a lot different. He was actually able to be there quite a bit, whereas with my experience you only have an hour or two 2 days a week. I could relate to the way he described the affects medicine had on his daughter and the feeling that his daughter was so unlike the rest of the people at the hospital. At the very end he quickly summarized the rest of her life to date. I think personally I would have been more interested in her side of the story, but it was nice to be able to have a chance to relate to my own experiences. Anyway, it was an interesting read so try it out if you are interested in that kind of thing.

The second book was Trail of Crumbs by Kim Sunee. I actually really enjoyed this book which was also a memoir and an easy read. Sunee was abandoned as a child in Korea and was adopted by a couple from New Orleans. She went on to travel extensively through Europe. The book details her journey to find out who she is, the food she experiences, and her love life. Overall the book made me hungry which is a strange thing to say about a book. It made me hungry to travel and hungry to try all the delicious food she talks about through the book. Thankfully she did included recipes at the end of each chapter, however I think most of the food is ....too exotic?...for me to try myself.


  1. I love shopping online, but I hate the fact that the color I see online or the shape are different sometimes. It's always best to go to the mall and try it for yourself...

    I love frozen yogurt!!!! I can't get enough of them - I grew up eating it almost everyday at my favorite mall in Hawaii...

  2. Love the new dress and sounds like you had fun! :)

  3. Lovely new finds!!!

    And I'll have to check out that last book!

  4. The new dress and shoes should be lots of fun and look fabulous on you!

    I love trying new places to eat. Although, I don't get out that often. It would be fun to live in a test area.

    Trail of crumbs is such a great title for a book about one's life. :)

  5. i love that dress and those shoes! definitely nice finds!

  6. yougurt by weight.... I would definitely be in trouble
