Red Bowl...love this place. We always order a Bento box..and then we proceed to eat on it for days. It comes with a large entree (we always order sesame chicken..not too sweet, and the chicken is really chicken....not gummy or stringy or mysterious like other asian places' meats), 6 sushi rolls, brown/fried/white rice (love their brown rice), and another side - eggrolls, spring rolls, crab rangoons. All this for only $12! We usually share the meal, then have enough leftover for 2 lunches the next day. Unfortunately, the only nearby RedBowl is in Chapel Hill...so it's not that convenient.
Menchies...First, we can walk there. Second, the people there are always sooo nice. Third, it's froyo. Enough said.
Indie Girl hair ties.....because who doesn't need a trio of colored hair ties that costs $7?!? I cringe everytime I buy some, but I can't help it. They come in fun colors, and don't pinch my wrist when I wear them if my hair isn't pulled up yet. I also love that they don't snag my hair. I have been going through post-baby hormone changes and my hair is literally falling out if you even look at it wrong, so I can't afford to have a hair tie pulling out any more precious strands.
|Scout and Molly's in Chapel Hill has a good selection.|
Groopdealz and Very Jane....if you don't know what these are...stay away, stay far away. I waste 10 minutes everyday perusing the site for the daily deals. I have ordered a few things...the first purchase came super quick...I am still waiting on these refridgerator magnets from 2 weeks ago....sigh.
I actually won something last week at a Raleigh Chamber lunch event I attended with some co-workers. Tommy Bahama has a new store open at Crabtree Valley Mall and one lucky winner (that would be me) won a free pair of jeans. I was skeptical since I had never even tried their clothes before, but since they were free and because I have a very small wardrobe now thanks to post-baby body...I was excited! I set up an appointment and tried all different styles on. It was actually really fun:) And...I love their jeans! They were really comfortbale, flattering, and.....the real kicker.....they were not so low rise that my butt crack hung out every time I even thought about bending over!! I will certainly be going back there again. Plus, they have really awesome coastal home decor (and candles!) Next time you are over at Crabtree...stop in and see them, they are right next to Brooks Brothers on the second floor.
|I settled on these boyfriend jeans...and I can't wait to wear them now that it is cooler outside.|
SO...those are some of my faves (besides my wonderful husband and daughter!) I know I will think of tons more after I post this, but I'll spare yall and do it another time.
