We went to acupuncture {sooooooo relaxing}
and then out to eat at a fabulous sushi restaurant UMI.
It was super trendy, and we were super cool at the early bird seating of 4:30.
We hadn't eaten lunch yet, so we figured it'd be "Linner"
 Since we were the only ones there, we sat at the sushi bar.
They had a slide show of all the different rolls, 
and Joe saw the top left photo and kept trying 
to show the chefs, so they could make it for us.
They finally paused it and we were able to explain
and we had it for "dessert." 
It was "Rainbow Tar-tar" and absolutely divine.
I loved the "Sweetheart Roll" [middle left]
After we ate, we went to my favorite mall and I tried on a few things
-Jean shorts
-Red jeggings-- bad bad idea!!
-a few shirts
  Bought none of that. I just didn't "love" any of it.
I did have a coupon though and Joey found two shirts he liked, 
so I picked out a yellow scarf which we basically got for free!
-A gorgeous pair of suede, dark pink pointy toe heels.
Bought nothing. They started slipping off my heel, no bueno.
Bare Escentuals:
Bought too much!  Just kidding. I did buy:
-After Party quad eyeshadow
-Hottie eyeshadow
-Tinted mineral veil spf 
-Eye cream
-Faux self-tanner

It was deelish; not quite dad's, but not bad for our first attempt.
