Thieves, trips, and birthdays



Last week I wrote about going on a trip, and here is what I did! Abi and I decided we needed to go out of town just for on. I can't lie, one of our main purposes was so we could go to fancy grocery stores like Trader Joe's and Whole foods and look at everything for hours (Savannah is quite seriously lacking in its grocery store options). The first day we did just that which could be one of the main reasons why our husbands had absolutely no interest in joining us. A couple of foodie nerds who have been deprived of good stores is not something everyone wants to be around,ha.

Well anyway after shopping we stayed at a friend's house. Their apartment was so amazing and old, right across from Piedmont park. Well it also turns out that a thief spends his or her time around there! In the morning we discovered my car had been riffled through. Luckily nothing important was in there. But they did manage to get my camera bag (just the bag!!), my makeup bag, Abi's camera bag and older film camera, a coffee mug, a flashlight, and...our groceries!!! I find it quite hilarious and ironic that we went out of town to get fancy groceries and then they were stolen. So at least we get a good story out of it all!

After the excitement of the great robbery the most fun part of our trip came along. We had the most wonderful afternoon with Lauren and Rhiannon. We did a little shopping at Madewell and a few other places, had delicious coffee, and took fun pictures. Those ladies are among some of the nicest people I've met, it was great. I have to applaud Rhiannon for feeling under the weather and still hanging out regardless. It was also Lauren's birthday, which always makes everything more fun. The only downfall about getting along so well is that eventually you have to go home! I sure do wish we all lived closer. Or it just gives me more excuses to go out of town!

Oh and p.s. I am in Portland right now! Patrick and his band are recording for a month in Weed,CA so I snuck up here for a few days to visit with friends. But more about that later!
