Flower Show

Pics as promised ... we started off with lunch, a lot of times we go to a restaurant that's right at Macy's, but this time we went to a place called Granite City & I got this gigantic burger w/ waffle fries:

Then on to the show:

I think this next one is my favorite that I took today, I actually kind of composed the pic as opposed to my normal point & shoot & move on style:

Coming to the spring flower show has been a family tradition for as long as I remember, back before it was Macy's when it was Marshall Fields & before that when it was Dayton's. There have been a couple that I missed, but I was lucky enough to be able to get a half day at work, and starting at 6 that means I got out of there at 10 which was enough to put me in a good mood all by itself.

Tomorrow is shopping ... since I was unable to find any Solar Oil at any of my local Sally's, I'm going to take advantage of the 20% off Ulta coupon that they got & go get it there. Then I've got a Kohl's coupon & a Lane Bryant coupon & a couple other errands to run, probably the library & etc. After all that, I'll come home & relax & take care of my nails with a fresh mani for Easter.

Thanks for reading.
