Mini Getaway

This past weekend my boss and I went to Birmingham for work and shopping! On the way up it was raining :( We still took a road pic anyways!
Instead of staying in a hotel, we had a wonderful weekend's sleep at the home of Kathy and Greg! We just LOVE them! They used to live in Dothan, and owned a business next to Hissyfits. (where I work) Needless to say, we saw the two of themm EVERYDAY...and we miss them :( Here is their FABULOUS brand new home!Friday night we arrived and went out to dinner at P.F. Changs. Amie and I split our food everywhere we went! We are watching what we eat. Amie is always making me try new foods! I tried MANY new things this weekend, and to my surprise I enjoyed them all! At P.F. Changs we ordered the 'Chang's Chicken Lettuce Warps' and for the meal the 'Chang's Chicken Fried Rice'. It was so yummy and my first experience at P.F. Changs!
Here's Kathy and I while eating :)
Saturday, we worked and did some shopping!! They had a Juicy Couture store!! I love Juicy stuff, but haven't been to a full out Juicy store, the one in Birmingham is new :) I bought a super fabulous black clutch regular $128.00 for $49.00!! I know everyone knows my cupcake fetish...well, I bought a cupcake necklace!! (and got a student discount!) Yay me!

Look at all the pretty Juicy jewelry!! The jewelry is my fav!

The pink knight in the store! The had different shape jars filled with different types of candy everywhere! So cute!

Amie and I behind the counter with my purchases! The perfume on the left called Viva La Juicy is what I own and wear religiously! I love it, it smells wonderful!

For lunch, we went to the Cheesecake Factory!! I have always loved this place! For appetizer we ordered the Sweet Corn Fritters which were wonderful and the onion rings. We sent back the onion rings because we didn't like them. They just aren't 'southern' like we are used to. For lunch we split the lunch portion of the 'Thai Checken Pasta' and of course for dessert we HAD to have some cheesecake! Our waitress was so helpful with her advice on which one we should choose. We went for the 'Chocolate Tuxedo Cream Cheesecake'.

We went to MANY boutiques, stores, and a mall and had a blast! In one little store Amie saw this sign and we had to get a pic! This is so true! "Of course your mother knows how to push your buttons, she programmed you!" After tons of shopping we needed a snack to refuel :) Amie ate a pretzel and Diet Coke and I went for the cookie slice with icing and icee!

Saturday night for dinner we went and ate at 'Superior Grill' which is a mexican restaurant. I was so full from the cheesecake factory and everything that i just ate the BEST cheese dip and chips and Amie got the fish tacos. Here's us girls!

Sunday morning Kathy made some Cinnamon Rolls :) They were delicious! We also did some shopping and took a ride through Kathy's new neighborhood!

Here's Amie and Kathy at PotteryBarn. We got some wonderful ideas from PotteryBarn for decorating! Don't you just LOVE PB!

For lunch we ate at Flip Side Burger Boutique. It was so neat! They had the BEST onion rings EVER and some really good sweet potato fries with chocolate salt! That's right ....chocolate salt! Also, they had Smore's shakes and Krispy Kreme shakes with nitrogen! Awesomeness!

Last but not least, here's a pic of Kathy and I in her neighborhood with a cool castle on the gold course!

I hope you enjoyed the few pictures I took of our trip! Don't forget to enter my giveaway HERE :)
