Initially I thought that I'd just go to get out of the house, you know, to people watch, and to spend hours in Barnes and Noble, in my favorite chair, drooling over books that I shouldn't buy...
Next week I am attending an "elegant" event at an inn located in a wealthy town here in Connecticut. All of my "elegant" clothes are boring, except for one top & I feel uncomfortable wearing it because of the amount of cleavage the person to my left gets to see. (It's a wrap around top and the top layer flaps open when I sit down)
So needless to say, I didn't want to wear the Flappin' Boobie shirt.
I was completely successful in my search for new digs, right down to the shoes and jewelry-AND it was all either on clearance or on sale!
Now I'm extremely excited! I've never been to an event that was labeled "elegant" before-especially not one like this.
Also on my shopapalooza trip I discovered a new eatery. It's called J.B. Mack Macaroni and Cheese Kitchen.
Macaroni and Cheese almost any way you like it, served on top of a roll. Which is weird. But good too.
The actual Mac n Cheese sucked. It was bland, and quite frankly, I was disappointed. They used tiny shells, reminiscent of Velveta and I gotta say, I would have preferred the tiny elbow...but the best part was when I had my fill of the pasta (I added ham) I dumped it out and had a cheesy roll.
THAT was yummy.
The other cool part was that because I was alone, I opted to sit at the "bar" near the mall window-so I got to people watch. It's funny to see people's reaction to a MnC restaurant. I saw a lot of people mouth, "Macaroni and Cheese!" as they veered over into the other lane to get a closer look-at my food.
One lady even knocked over a small child in her quest for wholesome goodness.
Overall, it's a cool idea, and I can see it quickly becoming popular. If I ever eat there again, I'm totally going to put hot dogs in it (because I do that at home sometimes) and I'll be sure to add some s+p to pep it up a bit.
I also got to see an under cover cop bust people in JC Penny.
It was pretty cool. He was a young guy, maybe my age, dressed all thuggish. But then I got paranoid. While browsing the racks for new baubles, I kept seeing a thuggette looking at me out of the corner of her eye.
I totally could have taken her, so I didn't worry too much. ;)
I hope you are all having a fantastic weekend!
