Shopping and Eating

**Catching up from the weekend? Friday I did “Hot Yoga” and Saturday I tried a Peanut Butter Coffee flavored beer!**

Shopping and Eating

The rest of our Sunday was spent shopping and eating.  Basically two of my favorite things to do on any given day 😉

Our first stop was to a restaurant Andy and I have been curious to try out: Cork and Lenny’s. From the outside, it looked like a quaint little place.  But when we stepped inside we were both surprised at how large the place was. For one, it’s a full size deli, with all different kinds of meats, cheeses, and salads.  Then they also have a full service restaurant, serving breakfast (all day- love that!), lunch and dinner.  Since Andy and I had already had our breakfast, we were ready for some lunch.

Andy decided to try out one of their ginormous Overstuffed Sandwhiches: The Sammy Kay.  Check this sucker out:

The Sammy Kay

He ate the entire thing.  I’m always impressed with a man who can eat like a champ (plus I don’t feel as weird when I can eat just as much, if not more!)

Though the sandwiches looked tempting, I was in the mood for some chicken salad.  I’m a huge fan of chicken salads, tuna salads, and egg salads.  If they’re on the menu at restaurants there’s a good chance I will get it.   This particular salad allowed me to choose two scoops of salad.  I went with a scoop of chicken salad and a scoop of egg salad. 

Chicken Salad + Egg Salad Plate

To be honest, I was not impressed with the chicken salad, which was a bummer since I was craving it.  It was pretty bland.  I like more flavor elements in my chicken salad, such as pecans or grapes.  This just didn’t do it for me.  The egg salad was much better though, so I ate more of that.  I ended up taking the majority of my lunch home.  I think I’ll add more to the chicken to spice it up for my lunch or dinner tomorrow. 

Despite my bland chicken salad, I’d like to try this restaurant again.  They had so much on their menu.  Actually, Andy and I thought they had almost too much on their menu! It was just so much to look over.  Next time I’d like to try a sandwich or go for breakfast. 


After lunch we headed over to TJ Maxx to “browse”. 

The Greatest Store on Earth!

Browsing for me means trying on numerous dresses in hopes for finding something that wows me.  I tried on a few dressed today, but none really “spoke” to me.

Hello from the dressing room!

Plus, some of them were $40.00 and that’s a lot of money for something you’re not totally impressed with. 

Orange Dress

I liked this color, but it had a funky fit up top.  I decided to pass on this one. 


 This dress was cute, but the fit wasn’t all that great. It bulged out a bit from the side and didn’t look too flattering.  Can’t win em’ all I guess!

Luckily in another week or so TJ Maxx will have a slew of new clothes for me to “browse” through.  My next hunt is for cute dresses to wear to the three weddings I have this summer!

In the end, Andy and I walked away with just a couple of bottles of random pasta sauce and some Usher cologne, which I thought was pretty amusing since Andy doesn’t listen to that type of music!  

After TJ Maxx, it was on to Whole Foods.  It was so convenient that all of the places we went today were in the same shopping center:

One Stop Shopping!

At Whole Foods we picked up some staples we needed for the week including:

  • Organic strawberries, blueberries, and apples
  • Pinapple
  • Frozen blueberries
  • Organic 1% milk
  • Organic light soy milk
  • Greek yogurt
  • Sour cream
  • Guacamole — they make such great guacamole at Whole Foods!
  • Cereal

I also picked up a gift card for my dad for Father’s Day.  He also loves to shop there!

After our shopping trip, we were ready for a sweet treat.  So we hit up McDonalds for $1.00 hot fudge sundaes.  Can’t beat that price! 

Sundaes on Sunday

 With all the eating and shopping we did, it was nap time.  We all zonked out on for about an hour, which felt amazing. 

I think that Sammy Kay got to him...!

The dogs also took time to nap…only they sleep on the bed not the couch.  Yeah, they pretty much own us!

They call this the "guest room", but we know better.

Now it’s time to finish my laundry (I feel like I am always doing this!) and relax for the evening with Andy.  Goodnight!

  1. your hair is getting so long! I love it.

    and holy meat on that sandiwch. he is a champ!

  2. I love the orange dress!! It looks really good on you 🙂 Since my hair is orange/red, I have to stay away from orange colors, but I always think they look so great with brown hair 🙂

  3. I 100% agree about he orange dress. As a Clemson fan, everything orange looks good to me, so it would have been hard for me to put back on the rack. I’m picky about fit though, so I hear ya!

  4. Lindsey, oh my gosh- your hair- GORGEOUS!!!
    I do LOVE that orange dress on you, but you have to feel comfortable in it..that’s the main thing.
    Oooo I love TJ Maxx too- I went there to ‘browse’ yesterday too & ended up spending $120 on workout clothes & 2 pairs of shoes…oops! But SO worth it for the price! 🙂
    I agree with you about chicken salad- I love the addition of grapes. Bummer that it wasn’t that good…but it’s a good thing that you got a mix, and not JUST the chicken salad.
