It’s really starting to feel like Christmas time to us! Yesterday, I was finally feeling better after having the stomach flu all of Thanksgiving weekend. I was sad to miss William’s first Thanksgiving dinner, but we got lots of snuggles in before and after! Since my energy is back to normal and I feel human again, we went out for Christmas shopping and lunch yesterday. It was just what the doctor ordered! The Mermaid Bar at North Park Mall is a long standing shopping break spot for my mom and me. We usually order a cup of turkey chili, a side salad and, of course, iced tea. William was the biggest ham, flirting with all the ladies! By the time we left he had three new girlfriends 🙂 The day out really lifted my spirits after being sick. We walked around and got some ideas for Christmas gifts and then headed to Highland Park Village to try Bird Bakery. Have you been yet? It is the cutest bakery, the cookies are delicious- try the Monster and Double Chocolate Chip cookies. We were in a cookie mood, but the cupcakes are adorable and all the flavors sound wonderful. A return trip is definitely on the agenda!
