This morning I got a call from my friend, Kaori...she's in town visiting this week from Japan. We decided to meet up at South Coast Plaza for lunch and some shopping. The last time Kaori saw Ashlyn was back in February (at Ivy's wedding)...so imagine her surprise seeing Ashlyn today. Kaori and I enjoyed a nice long chat over lunch at Vie de France, then spent the afternoon shopping. Though I told myself that I wasn't going to buy anything at the mall, I couldn't resist some of the bargains I found. I got a cute lil' hat for Ashlyn (which she automatically ripped off her head). *sigh* I picked up a Lancôme Juicy Tube Lip Gloss...I find that they're longer lasting and less sticky than MAC's Lip Glass. I also found a cute belated birthday gift for Bett. Finally! And I bought three dresses, a ruffled tank, and a pair of khaki low-rise capris. I found those at dirt cheap prices...so cheap, it's embarassing.
Since returning from Vegas, my throat has been sore and swollen, and I've been feeling a bit congested. But today my whole body ached and I definitely knew that I was coming down with something. =( By 4:30pm, I was feeling really awful and decided to head home. Kaori continued shopping, but we said that we'll try to get together again before she leaves for Japan.
slept the whole way home. By the time I got home from sitting through
the sedating sunlight and afternoon traffic, I was ready for a nap
myself. But of course, Ashlyn woke up from her nap and wanted to play.
Luckily, Aric got home shortly after I did, and kept the baby busy.
Pictures from today:
Going to bed early...I NEED to get over this thing quick. The countdown for my cruise begins...5 days till departure! Email chains have been going back and forth between the five of us regarding what to pack, insurance, excursions, etc...and as each day passes, we each get antsier and antsier. Shooo...is that even a word?! Anyhow we'll all be happy as soon as this week's over. =D
