A Perfect Fall Day

Today Jameson and I dropped Kevin off at class and then went to Bruegger's Bagels. Jameson had a plain buttered bagel and I got to have my ultimate favorite: An everything bagel with Bacon Scallion spread. Mmmm....

After a fun breakfast where Jameson met a new friend and they proceeded to laugh at each other's funny faces we headed to an area called Cherry Creek, we had some errands to run. I love this particular area of Denver. It is urban chic. Awesome restaurants, cool stores, an old-fashioned ice cream parlor, and everything is within walking distance. We got there about 9:30 and none of the stores opened until 10:00 so we strolled our way all around, looking into windows, greeting everyone on the street. Just enjoying the sunshine and unusually warm, but crisp day. When we got to Nordy's (I love that store) I immediately found Jameson some shoes (the boy has HUGE feet: 8.5). I was looking for waterproof shoes in an 8.5 that he could wear with everything, jeans, chinos, nicer pants. He only gets one pair of shoes in Vienna. Ha ha. Well, not only did I find the perfect pair but they were on SALE. Whoo hooo. Love that half-yearly sale! They look like a nice hiking boot by Sperry, and they are gore-tex. Awesome. Then I picked up some make-up for me, and then I found some great deals at Baby Gap too. Jameson was even a great shopper this morning. Note to self: go shop in the mornings. Normally he has had enough after one store. We hit up all the stores we needed to and then headed back to DU (University of Denver) to pick up Kevin. Then to top off our nice morning we had lunch at Chipotle which is one of the easy gluten-free restaurants where Kevin can eat.

Overall, it was a great day, and I got to cross more stuff off my list. Now if only I could find a cute, waterproof shoe that I can wear with any sort of outfit. Any suggestions?

no shoe suggestions, but I'm jealous of the bacon scallion spread! Love that stuff!! AND Cherry Creek :) remind me again why I don't live in Denver so we can have breakfast and shop?

I WISH you lived in Denver so we could have breakfast and shop! However, if I recall correctly, it was much more practical in the long run for you to stay in LA. :-( I have some bacon scallion spread in my fridge! Yum.
