Mother Daughter Outing & Pei Wei

So what is a blog mama suppose to do when she has not spent any time with her daughter in two weeks? And her daughter's boyfriend is out hunting turtles and fishing? (Check out that huge turtle he caught.) Take her out to dinner and do some girly shopping of course!

Katie's schedule has been hectic the last couple of weeks and just talking to her over the phone, through instant message, text messaging and Facebook was not working for us anymore. We needed girl time. We needed mom/daughter time. So yesterday my sweet Aunt came to the office to answer the phones for a few hours so I could leave work early and go across town to Katie's place.
First thing we had to do was drop a vehicle off for an oil change.....
Then we went to Hobby Lobby. Three goals for the night: 1. A bowl or basket to hold keys and cell phones. 2. A huge mirror to go above a buffet table and 3. Shoes!
The Home Goods store (our favorite place to shop).....
Off Broadway Shoes to find some good deals on summer shoes.....
Pei Wei for dinner.....
Pei Wei is an Asian Diner that is fantastic. This was my second time to go there and loved it just as much as the first time!
We got two spring rolls.....
yummy lettuce wraps......
and a Korean dish with brown rice.....
It was all so good! Our favorite fortune cookie "fortune" for the night was, "He who grabs the last lettuce wrap is the least hungry"! Funny because we did get lettuce wraps!
Then we walked through Target and made a quick stop in Kirklands.....
Katie did find a neat round basket to hold "stuff"...... but no mirror for the dining room.
And I found three pairs of shoes. The ones on the left were the ones I wore to the foot doctor the next day and could not get my fat bandaged toe in to !
We also worked on Katie's college graduation announcements and grad party preparation last night. We love our mother/daughter times together. Love you Katie girl!
