Sushi and Shoes

I may or may not have mentioned this previously, but Texas is stealing my college roommates.  Over the course of a single year, three of my nearest and dearest friends/former roommates have moved to that state for one reason or another.  It's a big change from having them live within an hour and a half of me, and a HUGE change from them living in the same apartment as me.

However, one of those lovely ladies (whose wedding I was in this past summer) is in NJ visiting her parents this week.  I had the day off from work, so we got together for lunch and shopping.

We gorged ourselves with delicious sushi at East Japanese:

Sadly, all the seats at the conveyor belt were taken, so our dining experience wasn't quite as adventurous as it could have been, but everything was still very tasty.

And big news:  After months of searching, I FINALLY found a pair of brown pumps:

Not the greatest picture, but they were on clearance at Macy's and I couldn't find this pair on their website anymore.  But they are super cute, super comfortable, and were marked down from $75 to $31.  I'm a happy camper. :-)

Apart from the ridiculous traffic on Route 4 and almost getting rear-ended by a speeding bus in the parking lot of the Garden State Plaza, it was a wonderful afternoon!

Hopefully the joy of those new shoes will be the happy thought that sustains me as I start working on the tax return for my jewelry business this week.  I always dread doing inventory, but once I get that done, I'm planning to finally add some listings to my much-neglected Etsy shop.  Wish me luck!


  1. That sushi looks so good! And those heels are super cute.

  2. super cute shoes and what a great price!

  3. Sounds like such a fun afternoon and oh I will have to say that those shoes were definitely worth the wait. They are beautiful. I think now I need to make a trip to our Macey;s!!

  4. Wow. Super jealous!
