Wilton: Some Retail Therapy and Eating Real Food

Today was amazing for several reasons. The first being that my chipmunk cheeks have nearly disappeared, which made me socially presentable. The second was the realization I could lightly chew French toast, which meant that I could start eating real food. The third was knowing my parents and I were going to the mall in the afternoon.
I remembered the emotional benefits of retail therapy–it truly does wonders to lift up spirits.
To my father’s dismay, my mom and I spent more time shopping than he would have liked, but my mom and I scored great deals at Bare Escentuals, Victoria’s Secret, and Forever 21. I am currently obsessing over the red jacket from Forever 21.
We ate lunch at Brio, an Italian restaurant next to The Cheesecake Factory. It was a perfect day to sit outside and enjoy the last days of summer. I ordered salmon and angel hair pasta for an entree. For dessert, my mom and I split a small creme brulee.
Needless to say, I was happy to have a nice meal with my parents outside of the house. Eating Ramen noodles and organic applesauce in bed can only sustain a girl with a fierce appetite for food and adventure for so long.
I want to try to get a head start reading some novels for school–Madame Bovary has been on my reading list for a few years–but whether or not I actually will is debateable.

One of the reasons why I love Victoria’s Secret, because of all of the freebies and discounts. I received a free pair of  underwear, a $10.00 discount off a bra, and a free T shirt with the bra. Not bad.
