After our weekly shop and a snack, Mom and I took a trip over to the Running Room. I needed new running shoes (never ever call them sneakers like I did the last time I bought shoes...the look I got would have stopped a rhino in its tracks). My current ones, my fabulous fluourescent green-trimmed Saucony's, are about 4 years old and should have been retired a long LONG time ago. However, running shoes are not cheap so I've been waiting. Because I have motion-control issues and pronate more than the average Jane, my choices were limited. Factor in that I have a 9.5 size foot (USA) and it makes shoe shopping difficult. The Running Room carries a total of 4 styles that fit the bill. And only one of those were in stock in my size. Well, the running shoe gods were with me today because the lone pair was perfect. And, surprise surprise, they were this year's version of the shoe I bought last time! I was so excited that I decided to treat myself to some new specialty socks (my lone pair remaining in my sock drawer is older than the shoes) and didn't look at the price. Probably a good thing too since I spent $45 on 4 pairs. Eeeeeek. Oh well.
Rather than bus it back home again, we opted to walk since we had also stopped off at the newest location of Whimsical Cupcakes. This is the same company that created the Necrinomicake for Big Brother's birthday this year. Mom treated me to a Berry Lovely, a strawberry flavoured cupcake with a light berry frosting, while she indulged her craving for a Passionista, a vanilla cupcake topped with a passion fruit flavoured icing. Holy schmoleys. Now that was fabulicousness. To work them off, we headed across the highlevel bridge, through the legislature grounds and then up the hill to home. Oh so worth the physical exhaustion at the end.
No big plans for Easter, not that we're religious anyways. We picked up a small turkey this morning and I'll be roasting that tomorrow and serving with some mashed potatoes, homemade gravy, stuffing and brussels sprouts. Mmmmmmm. No chocolate or candy for us - the Easter Bunny doesn't visit anymore which is probably for the best. What are you doing this weekend?
