Completely Random, Totally Unplanned

I didn’t take pictures of anything today.  So if you’d like to imagine me with more voluminous hair, that quilted Chanel bag I’ve always wanted, and an outfit straight out of the Anthropologie catalog, that would be just superb 😉

Today was a day of completely random, totally unplanned-adventuring.

Marcus and I ended up stopping by the Sonora Grill at the Midtown Global Market for lunch.  I’ve been meaning to try their Eggplant Bocadillo with Eggplant Fries for AGES now and once I saw them in MplsSt.Paul magazine, I knew we had to go before it totally jumped the shark.

I don’t mind eggplant but I don’t usually order it when I’m out…anywhere.  So to order it on a sandwich and as fries?  Utter madness.

As I tore in, we definitely had one of those Where Have You Been All My Life?-type moments.

Since we had to take Lake St. to get back to the freeway (there was some seriously bizarre stuff going on with traffic in the cities today), Marcus suggested an impromptu walk around Lake Calhoun.  Considering that today was one of those extremely rare late fall days, where people were lunching outside in tank tops, it was an offer I couldn’t refuse.

There was a serious absence of crunchy leaves to step on, but every time I looked at the lake, there was another pair of loons diving and paddling about.  Try to figure that one out.

Earlier in the day, Erica texted me to inform me that we were doing a ladies’ dinner at Barrio.  A night with sangria, small plates and corn chowder sent directly from heaven?  I’m always in.

So after a bit of casual napping, I threw on a wrap, a fresh coat of mascara and headed out.  It was so lovely (and relaxing) to wrap-up the day by catching up with some of my favorite ladies!

Where is your favorite place to visit for ladies’ night?

I just love going down to the 50th & France area.  There are so many cute shops and interesting places to eat!
