Eating and Shopping

I went out to eat with my mom and sister to celebrate my birthday.  It's on Monday, but we got together early. I brought my camera along to document the day and share it with you.  We went to Macaroni Grill for lunch and I had my favorite dish called Shrimp Portofino.  Yum!


I order this every time I go there.  It has shrimp, mushrooms, spinach, pine nuts and angel hair pasta covered in a lemon butter sauce.  Oh my word!!!  To die for! 

After we left the restaurant we went to a couple of shops.  One of them is my favorite antique store called Queen of Hearts.  They have several locations.  This one is in Alpharetta.  It is the one closest to my house.

Here I am, with camera in hand, snapping pics for you all to see.


As soon as we walked in the door we stopped at my favorite booth and I fell in love with this cabinet (including everything that was inside it).


It was hard to walk away from it and not just haul it out to a truck that could take it to my house.  (Afterall, it was very close to the front door)  Do you think anyone would've noticed me doing that?  You see the problem with this cabinet is the ginormous price!!!  Are you ready?  How much do you think this cabinet costs?   It's over $1800!  Yikes!  So, folks, it's still sitting in the store in case one of you would like to buy it, cause I can't at the moment.  Ha!  Here's one more shot just because I loved it so much.


I also enjoyed many other booths.  Let's look around, shall we?







I will have to make this a 2-part post since there are so many pictures.  I will post the 2nd half tomorrow.  As you can see, there was plenty of good stuff to choose from.

So, come back here tomorrow to see the rest.  Hope you're having a great Saturday.
