Girls' Day with My Mom

Another beautiful spring weekend is in the books!

After work on Friday, Andy and I met at the mall to run a few errands before heading home.

We were both starving by the time we arrived, so we grabbed a pretzel to eat while we shopped -- not sure if it was this particular place or what, but I remember these tasting better when I was a kid.

Afterwards, we did our weekly Costco haul -- we were out of a lot of items, so our cart was a lot more full that usual! 

Since we were with Andy's side for Mother's Day, my mom and I spent the day together this past Saturday. We celebrated Mother's Day and her birthday since it always falls during the same week!

We started out by going to the arboretum -- it was surprisingly really cool on this particular morning but once we started walking around, we warmed up a bit! 

Afterwards, we headed to Wayzata so that I could go to my eye doctor appointment. My eyes have been SO dry this year and after not having success with wearing glasses and using eye drops, my doctor suggested punctal plugs, which are little stoppers that go into your tear ducts to help your eyes retain more moisture. I got fitted for them and then he put temporary ones in until my semi-permanent ones come in.

Since we arrived in Wayzata a little early, we headed to my favorite little French bakery / restaurant to grab a macaron! The ones at Bellecour are seriously the best!

After my appointment, we headed down the street to Crisp & Green for lunch! I'd been wanting to try this fresh salad spot for awhile now, and this day felt like the perfect opportunity! I went with the "Yacht Club" salad with black beans in place of shrimp and it hit the spot! It had a jalapeno-lime vinaigrette and it was so tasty! My mom ordered the fiesta grain bowl and it looked equally as delicious! I'll definitely be stopping by here again! 

Afterwards, we did a little more shopping and then went our separate ways. I ended up taking a nap when I got home and then finished my recent library book before watching some tv with Andy.
