…funny how our idea of “play” changes as we get older. just a few years ago, a “play” day likely would’ve involved toys, or maybe the pool, or maybe a park and some swings. I do still love the park and swings, but it was HOT in Atlanta today and not really suited to being outside [complete sidenote here – how in the world did ANYone ever live in the south before air conditioning?!]
so here’s how play day plays out for us now:
*7am workout with rob (sara even manaqed a few smiles despite the early hour – and I thought it was nice to arrive in the daylight – my usual time is 6am and it’s never light then!)
*9:30am appointment with jo at spa sydell for a first-day-of-school brow wax for sara (I knitted)
*lenox mall for urban outfitters (sara found 3 dresses, a skirt and a few tops – huge success), american eagle (super-cute skinny jeans on sale for sara) bath and body works (stocking up on yummy-smelling soap for the powder room), j crew (cropped pants – on sale! – in black for me) and anthropologie (the only disappointment – I wanted a wide leather belt but they had nothing)
*portofino for lunch – we each ordered the pranzo – a “pick any three” lunch special. all of it was delicious, and we’re thinking we could make the chickpea and farro salads at home. (click photos for details).
*end of lunch photo – I posed the camera on my water glass so this would “count” as my project 365 photo 🙂
(and yes, we sat outside – the shade and a breeze – somehow it seemed like only 75 degrees there)
*perimeter mall for bobbi brown at nordstroms (a new bronzer for me), sur la table (a built lunchbox for sara), j crew (again – for the gray pants they didn’t have at lenox)
*and finally…home – whew!
and I love that it’s just 5:30 and the plants have been watered, photos uploaded and we’re watching barefoot contessa.
