Rainbow Sprinkles Make Life Better

Just like every other Friday, I got to enjoy some wonderful company at lunchtime today!

Since Ryan’s works a 9/80 schedule (9-hour days, 80 hours every two weeks, with every other Friday off), I always look forward to our every-other-Friday lunch dates.

I know you know exactly where we went…

I <3 Jimmy John's

Sandwich Champ

Jimmy John’s!!!

As always, I got an unwich (turkey with lots of veggies, vinegar, olive oil, and dijon mustard) and Ryan opted for the Gargantuan on wheat bread, which I naturally had several bites of as well.

Turkey + Veggies


After demolishing our sandwiches, we were in the mood for some sweets!

We headed to Mochi (my second time in two days…), for soft serve with sprinkles.

Sprinkles Make Life Better

I think rainbow sprinkles make life better. How can you not be happy digging into ice cream with sprinkles!?

The weather was so nice out and we seemed to plow through our lunch and soft serve pretty quickly, so we took some extra time to walk a couple blocks to the New York Deli downtown.

Neither of us had ever been and I was in the mood for a cookie (Cookie Friday, anyone!?) and figured they’d have some good ones!

When I went to pay for our cookies (chocolate chip for me, white chocolate macadamia nut for Ryan) the nice man at the counter didn’t accept my money! I was shocked and thanked him several times.

Free cookies! What a nice Friday treat.

We enjoyed our cookies outside by a pretty fountain.

Cookie Friday!

Weekend Plans

I am so excited for this weekend!

Right after work my mom is picking me up and we’re heading to Gainesville to visit my sister at the University of Florida for her sorority’s mother/daughter/sister/aunt/any woman in your family weekend. Yay for girly fun!

Other plans include:


  • Mother/daughter dinner out in Gainesville


  • Sister’s sorority brunch
  • Pottery painting
  • Drive back to Orlando
  • Dinner out in Orlando


  • Church
  • Look at bridesmaid dresses
  • Visit Something Blue Bridal to meet the designer of my wedding dress!!!!!!!

Can you tell I’m especially excited for the last one!?

I can’t wait to actually meet the many who designed my wedding dress in person! My dress was designed by James Clifford (who also designs dresses under the name Jim Hjelm) and he’s coming to the boutique where I bought my dress on Sunday. Fun!

  2. Sarah says

    Haha, that’s exactly how I feel about rainbow sprinkles. I always manage to sneak them into a present because everything seems better with them! Have a fun weekend!


  3. says

    Do we get a sneak preview of the dress, or a hint as to what it looks like – I’d love to see it!
    I’ve never been to Jimmy John’s, but it looks great and we have one downtown. I’ll have to hit one up soon!

    Rainbow sprinkles do, indeed, make everything better! They’re just so fun – one of life’s simple pleasures :)

    I LOVE your outfit!! Have fun meeting with the designer! I discovered your blog while I was on my blog break so I’ve been catching up over the past two weeks. I’m excited to read about your wedding planning because I’m in a wedding that’s taking place at the end of September so a lot of what you talk about are things that I’m helping the bride with right now. Have a blast planning!!

    So fun! I was just a bridesmaid in a wedding this past November, and we all wore Jim Hjelm dresses….absolutely gorgeous, it’s the ONLY dress so far that I’ll actually wear again (and my closet looks like 27 Dresses, let me tell you). Enjoy the weekend!


  6. says

    That looks like an amazing weekend you have coming up.

    Yay for free cookies. AND fro-yo goodness. And a lunch date. What a wonderful day. Although, I must admit I am one that does NOT like sprinkles. I actually hate them. I think its a texture thing.

    You are so gorgeous Julie. I just had to say it. :)


  7. says

    You’re totally right…rainbow sprinkles DO make everything better! Especially on soft serve vanilla & orange twist…YUM! :-D I’ve never heard of Mochi before, but OH MY I’m jealous!! I want to know how to get one of those up here in New York. We don’t have anything like that idea up here to pay by the ounce…what a great idea! I checked out their website – what are some of your favorite flavors?? :-P


    • peanutbutterfingers says

      my absolute favorite (without a doubt) is red velvet cake. it’s SO delicious. i could eat it every day for every meal. i’m not even kidding!


  8. Paige says

    I do Friday lunch dates with my boyfriend too. Flexible schedules are the jam! Looks like you and Ryan had a fun last hurrah before your girlie weekend shenanigans begin. Score on the free cookies too!
