Consumption (Conspicuous and Otherwise)

Well, I had a mighty fine day shopping with me mommy. We went to three malls and an outdoor shopping village. I capped my day with a visit to Super Target. Now I'm home, and ready to collapse from exhaustion.

Aaaaaaaand what did I buy? Not that much, actually. I picked up a mall gift card for my sister-in-law, an Illuminations travel candle in Poundcake (which is AWESOME), a bag of Old Fashioned Red Licorice from Harry & David, MAC Stubborn Brown Powerpoint eyeliner, a calendar for my dad, two sets of Yu-Gi-Oh action figures for my nephew, and a limited edition Yu-Gi-Oh game card tin for me. Or maybe it was for Alex. I'm not telling!

I also visited Tiffany & Co. and was told that yes, I can get the chain on the Elsa Peretti initial necklace extended as long as I want (yay!), but they are backordered until mid-January (boo!). Although I guess that really doesn't matter, because I wasn't going to buy mine until February/March anyway. So, yay!

We stopped for lunch at Olive Garden, and this was what I had:


It was just as good as it looks - the mashed potatoes were freaking AWESOME! - but I was forced to pick off the mushrooms. Plus, I now feel guilty for porking out (I also had two garlic breadsticks). But it was sooooooo goooooood and my weigh-in was this morning, so ... whatever!

Why yes, I must agree that this is a yummalicious dish. But I leave my mushrooms on, thank you very much, and I don't give a crap about my weight. Which is why I eat as many breadsticks as I can wink the waitress into leaving at the table.
