Good Morning!

I woke up craving fruit as soon as I woke up, and I was able to satisfy my craving by blending up a delicious blueberry smoothie.

My smoothie breakfast contained:

  • 1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1/2 cup nonfat, plain Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup blueberries
  • 1 handful of fresh spinach
  • 1 packet of stevia
  • 2 ice cubes

I thoroughly enjoyed my liquid breakfast.

Vera Bradley Outlet Sale 

This weekend, I went home to Fort Wayne so that I could hang out with my mom and go the the Vera Bradley Outlet Sale with her.  Although I grew up in Fort Wayne, and they have the sale every single year, I had never gone before!

The sale began on April 9 and ended on Sunday April 14.  Because Mom and I were heading in on the last day, we thought that many items would be gone, we would have no problem going straight into the sale, and we would be in and out in no time!  Boy, were we wrong.

This was my first image of the Vera Bradley sale: Vera 3

Mom and I hopped to the back of the line and waited as we weaved through the line as if we were waiting at an amusement park!  There were a ton of people there.

We finally got in, and I was immediately overwhelmed.  I needed a plan!!

Vera 5Thank goodness the organizers of this shopping event were more than prepared.  Each shopper was handed a shopping guide that labeled each table, had a picture of each item, and listed the price that it was selling for.  That sure made things a lot easier to understand!  We were also handed a giant pink garbage bag to carry all of our loot as we shopped.

Vera 6Mom and I had a couple of specific items that we were looking for, but decided to just go up and down each aisle to make sure that we did not miss anything.

Vera 9Mom and I ended up with a pretty small amount of goodies to take home, but it was more about the experience.  I loved seeing all of the bright and colorful patterns 🙂

After our morning/afternoon of shopping, Mom and I decided we were a little bit hungry and needed some frozen yogurt to refuel from all of our shopping 😉

My mom had been raving about a little fro yo shop in Fort Wayne called YoYo, and after eating there I can understand why!

YoYoThis fro yo shop was self serve (hence the name “on your own”) and it was extremely tasty!! Mom and I both ended up with some of the sea salted carmel flavored fro yo (so good!!!).  I mixed mine with peanut butter and topped it with trail mix and a couple of cookie dough pieces.  Mom mixed hers with dark chocolate and topped hers with heath bar crumbles and cocoa pebbles.   What a yummy treat!

It was a perfect trip home for the weekend!

  1. I’ve always wanted to go to the Vera Bradley outlet sale! My aunt is now a manager of a VB store in Ohio, so she gets the inside scoop! This weekend I tried out a new spin studio and spent quality time with my best friend.
