Confession: I'm a Cheater

On Monday, I determined that I needed some things from the mall - immediately (weird that I would be completely impulsive..... Not). I bribed C to come with me yesterday after work with the promise of a quick trip and dinner, and off we went.

Well. Kind of. We had to stop at 7-11 first, so that I could get a Slurpee since my throat currently feels like someone took a cheese grater to it. Blah. Slurpee = sore throat requirement.


Once we got to the mall, I bee-lined for the Limited. Just under an hour later, we were outta there with exactly what I needed, and having saved $200 through various sales and the student discount. So much win. C was a fantastic helper, retrieving sizes and colors with little-to-no eye rolling or complaining. He's so good to me. And has the patience of a saint...

We had a quick but delicious dinner at PF Chang's - we love that place. The food was yummy and the service was amazing, as usual. Seriously, I've never gone there and had anything but fantastic service, from the hostesses to the wait staff to the food runners. It makes the meal that much better. There are a lot of other restaurants that could really learn a lesson from PF Chang's! We even got good fortunes in our cookies:


Last but certainly not least was a quick trip to Pinkberry - froyo is my kryptonite. (Who am I kidding? SUGAR is my kryptonite!) It hit the spot - but seriously, I felt like I was cheating on Sweet Frog. Froyo guilt set in as i ordered and devoured my treat. It just wasn't the same!! I'm sorry, SF! You weren't around to entice me yourself. Pinkberry was just a temporary stand in...


But a really, really good one. Sorry I'm not sorry.

C & I enjoyed our impromptu date night - that is something we do ago rarely during the week! It was nice to get out of the house and spend some time together that didn't involve sitting on the couch watching bad TV. Though we do love our bad TV... ha!

Sweet! I agree Sweet Frog is much better, although sometimes I miss TCBY and places like Pinkberry are nice because they make it for you (is that weird? HA). I also like being able to put a pound of oreos on top of my sweet frog, though without being judged so, that's a double edged sword if I ever saw one. Impromptu date nights are fun during the week, even if they are errands. A trip to Lowes and Sweetfrog turned into a "date" night once, and it was fun an enjoyable (does that make me a major grandma?). Keep up the great posts!!! I'll keep up my comment vomit :)

I saw a Sweet Frog in Columbus Ohio! The was the first we saw in our travels across the country. So they've made it that far. I know we are going to patronize the one at Smith Mountain Lake. And....heed the words of that second fortune. Live, think and act for today. Tomorrow may be too late!

I haven't ever had Sweet Frog. However, I always feel like a cheater if I get froyo anywhere but Yogurtland.

I clearly have serious brand loyalty issues... ha! And NO - the thing I love about SF is that I'm in charge! I prefer to get the exact right ratio of yogurt to toppings :) which is about 1/3 yogurt, 2/3 toppings - normal, right?? haha

They are popping up all over the place! And I'm probably going to single-handedly keep the one at SML in business... should have gotten that Frequent Customer card after all :)

I've never had Yogurtland! I think it's the same concept, though, right? Serve yourself? That's the best way :)
