You are one brave mama! I couldn't have done the sushi. Nope. Not in many years. In fact, any asian food does numbers on me that aren't pleasant at all. If I go out to lunch with people and these are the choices, I just get a coke and enjoy the gab.

Yay! Congrats on the new driveway AND the first sushi experience! I first tried it about two months ago and it was pretty good. I don't go for the hard-core raw stuff just yet,though...mostly smoked, etc. :P

You look adorable. I wish we had a DI here in Georgia! You seem to get the best stuff there. I'm glad you had such a wonderful Mother's Day and that you were brave enough to try sushi! I'm not such a fan, but it does look beautiful.
I hope you have an absolutely spectacular week. :)

Hey , you nearly made me fall off my ball laughing. Yep I'm sitting on a gym ball typing to try and stop my back hurting. You are looking so slim, love your thrift outfit and the new driveway, better than nothing.

Vee said...

Okay, but what did you think about the sushi? Will you eat it again? I love what you did with the bag...very cute! Yes, you're fading away to a mere shadow and you need a smaller shirt. :D How great is that and at those prices...no problem!

Looks like you had a fabulous day and you can't beat looking so great in such a cool (and inexpensive - love thrifting too) outfit. Sushi? I really love some of it, other bits and bobs, not so much.
