My kind of Saturday

Today was a good day. Due to rainy, rainy, rainy weather we decided to take a cozy and laid back approach to Saturday night out.

No a-list dining tonight. I wanted my version of comfort food! Dinner at my favorite deli. Oh, and the big tv was set on HGTV! How awesome is that??

I got the veggie sandwich, vegetarian chili and the best pickles you will ever eat! Unless you're Ryan, who hates pickles, hence me having two haha Ryan got a delish Panini and mashed potatoes, and helped me finish off my chili. What would I do without him? Oh, and I got an amazing huge fresh baked white chocolate & macadamia nut cookie, but forgot to get a picture...

Then we headed out to Barnes & Noble. Where we snatched up all sorts of awesome books and curled up at coffee shop with them. Mmmm, talk about a great way to enjoy a stormy day! Due to his work, Ryan was drawn to all the marketing/business books - and due to being a guy, he was drawn to the latest Lee Child book lol

I collected a variety of photography books (of course!) and Confessions of a Shopaholic :) I bought Confessions of a Shopaholic, but decided to be content reading the photography books in the store for the time being. Saving all I can for our Kansas City trip :)

Out of all the photography books, this was one of my favorite. The photos were beautiful and I loved how they explained all the technique!

Oh yes, and Ryan's a pyromaniac... And I was proud of my nighttime lighting :)

All in all, a great Saturday :) What have you all been up to?

Sounds like you had a great saturday! My husband and I go to B&N all the time when we go up to town! Sometimes we spend hours in there!

Oh, and pickles. I LOVE pickles. So I always eat his too:)

Great pics! The food looks sooo yummy!

Brett - We have so much in common! How awesome is that? lol

Gigi - I already finished the first shopaholic book, and loved it so much! Now I'm wondering why they didn't follow it in the movie... I actually haven't been to art walk, but have always wanted to. Hopefully I'll be able to in June! I really want to go to Randy Bacon's gallery sometime. Love his work!

i came by your blog from pioneer woman--your comment caught my attention becaue i too am trying to add a few pounds or as i like to say i am on a mission to "add some junk to my trunk". ackward to say that to too many.

we always enjoy a trip into town and visit to b&n which can last up to hours of enjoyment. i have just taken up photography as a hobby and love going through all the books there on it.

you have a wonderful blog.
