After breakfast I dropped my mom off at a nearby shopping plaza where she wanted to hit up TJMaxx and the supermarket. After I dropped her off I went to return some Wayyyyyy OVERDUE books at the Library. And this is the conversation that went on between me and the librarian checking in my booksLibrarian: Mabelle?
Me: Yeah is me
Librarian: We have a problem...
Me: ummmm yeah the books are wayy overdue. Right? How much is the minimum I can pay to be able to take out books again?
Librarian: Well, you have to get it under $15. And by the way, one book is still missing.
Me: I'll be back....
grrrrrrrrrrrrrr so yeah I went home and couldn't find the missing book and now I owe the library more than if I would have just bought the books I borrowed...:( This is what happens when you have a busy life. blah!
Anyways, I had to hop in the car again to go meet up my mom at the Plaza (3 hours later she was still browsing around). I had this as a quick snack
After dragging my mom out of TJMaxx we went to eat at the ONLY food place in the plaza (aside from an IHOP): Subway! I got what I ALWAYS get: Turkey & provolone cheese on whole wheat w/ lettuce, tomatoes and olives:
I got a foot long which my mom and I shared. She thought it was very weird I put olives in my sandwich. What can I say?! I'm special!
Post subway we entered the supermarket where my mom bought her usual weekly groceries and I got some of my staples:
After the supermarket, my best friend Christina called me to go see a movie. I haven't been to the movies in several months and my jaw almost dropped when I saw the price is now $11 a ticket. Wowwwwwwwwwwww. I think Netflix is about to gain a new customer pretty soon. But anyways, we ended up seeing this hilarious film
...And now I'm relaxing.
Okay so here goes the "little bit of Friday" part: My co-workers and I went to lunch together yesterday and ended up at the new spot in town:
So, although I grew up seeing the commercials I had NEVER been to a Red Robin in my entire life. As per my co-worker (whom I've never seen so excited) this is actually the first and only one in the Northeast. I don't know why in my mind red robin was similar to McDonald's. Oh boy! was I wrong! Its actually pretty good and they have great variety on the menu. Despite the "get a burger" temptation and peer pressure. I ended up with this:
...and didn't regret one bite! (delicious!!!)---chicken Cesar wrap, chicken tortilla soup, melon slices.
My co-workers were very focused on the ordering:
And apparently excited about the pepper on the table:
Question: Have you been to Red Robin? Do you like it?
