When we arrived home from yesterday’s indoor triathlon, Ryan and I were on a workout high. Neither of us felt like relaxing just yet and since we were amped, we decided to head out and run some errands.
Last Sunday we went through a ton of stuff in our house and ended up with several bags of unwanted clothes, shoes and accessories. Our first stop was to Plato’s Closet, to see if we could sell anything to the consignment shop before taking everything to Goodwill.
Since the crowds were pretty intense yesterday, we were told it would be about an hour until they had a chance to look through all of our stuff. To waste some time, Ryan decided to get a haircut at the Hair Cuttery down the way while I wandered into TJMaxx. Ryan joined me after his haircut and we had no problem killing time there!
It seems like stores like TJMaxx and Marshalls are very hit or miss, and yesterday the TJMaxx in Ocala was definitely a hit.
I actually didn’t end up getting that clutch because I stumbled upon a yellow clutch that I liked more and figured one clutch was enough for the day.
The yellow clutch was roomier and I loved the way it folded over. Very fun!
When Ryan and I met up at the check out line, he was a happy camper because he found a new sleeping bag that is ideal for temperatures below 30 degrees which will work for his annual guys’ hiking trips.
Check out my loot of the day!
I’m not sure if I will end up keeping the lace shirt you see in front. I need to try it on with a tank top underneath to see how it looks, but I really do love it. If any of you have suggestions on how to make it look both appropriate and cute, please teach me your ways.
Before driving home for the night, Ryan and I agreed that sushi sounded delicious and decided to go on a little date to Grace Japanese Steakhouse.
I started my meal with miso soup and shared edamame with Ryan.
For my main meal, I ordered a Florida roll which came wrapped in miso paper (I think?) instead of the traditional seaweed. It was good, but I prefer the taste of the seaweed.
I also had a Bonzai roll that included cucumber, crab, shrimp and masago.
I love this roll! It’s so light and refreshing.
Since the Japanese restaurant was within walking distance of Peachwave frozen yogurt, you better believe Ryan and I popped in for dessert.
Neither of us were very hungry, so we shared a cup of cheesecake and cookies ‘n’ cream frozen yogurt, topped with sprinkles, strawberries, peanut butter syrup, whipped cream and a few Reese’s.
As we were eating, Ryan and I discussed important things like our favorite frozen yogurt store rankings:
- Peachwave: Overall winner. Consistently has the best flavors.
- Yogurtology: Second place for their oatmeal cookie and red velvet flavors.
- Menchies: Best toppings.
- Mochi: Taro is my favorite.
Obviously our rankings only include the frozen yogurt shops we frequent in Florida and are really limited to what is available in Ocala, Orlando and St. Pete, as those are the cities we seem to frequent most. My fellow frozen yogurt fans, are we missing out on a fabulous frozen yogurt shop somewhere?
