Yesterday afternoon Leslie rode her bike into the city to meet me for a shopping adventure. I was in desperate need of some new running shoes, and wanted to look into a few other shops.
Our first stop was Lululemon. Now I am going to blame Sabrina 100% on the money I spent there today. A few weeks ago when we met up for dinner she was wearing this jacket/coat/cope combo called the Savasana Wrap. She raved about how amazing it was. Then Leslie bought one and raved about how amazing it is. Then of course I had to see how amazing it was, and somehow I ended up taking it home.
I tried to a picture of it, but it was hard. I am not a fashion blogger. I don’t ever clean this mirror because it’s usually at the back of my closet. The jacket is all black. And I look like I am not wearing pants, but I promise there are shorts underneath it.
Regardless it’s the most comfortable item I own and I plan to wear it till it’s death.
I also picked up a headband and an earwarmer. I am pretty excited about the earwarmer and think it will work great on my runs and bike rides this winter.
After that we headed to Philadelphia Runner because I needed new shoes. I tried on a few pairs, but ended up purchasing the exact pair I already have, just in a different color. I can’t wait to test them out later today.
Where were getting hungry and decided to grab some food at Good Dog, one of my favorite bars/restaurants in the city.
Beer was up first and we both decided on two fall beers.
This group of gentlemen actually bought our first round, which was awesome! Thanks for the free beers on your expense account guys!
I love hanging out with Leslie because she is not scared to have a beer at lunch.
We both went with a Lauren original…salad and french fries! You can’t ever beat that combo.
After lunch we swung by Lush for some beauty products. I picked up a new to me product, their hair dye! I didn’t even know Lush had hair dye, but I am really curious. I will do a full post/review once I use it…maybe this weekend?
It was a lot of fun to do things in center city in the middle of the week. The stores aren’t as crowded and I like seeing people walk around in their fancy business suit wear.
I woke up this morning and called my parent’s and received some sad news. They were about to head to the vet to put down our cat Miko.
We estimate that Miko is about 18 years old, and she hadn’t been doing well the past week, and got really bad the past few days. I know it’s for the best, but it’s just hard news to take.

Miko arrive at our house the summer of 1996. We are pretty sure she is a full blood Persian, so she wasn’t some random stray! We searched for her owner around the neighborhood for weeks. Then eventually we found out she was pregnant.
Now Miko was not the sharpest crayon in the box, we actually always joked that she was mentally retarded. I then found out that mental retardation is not uncommon in Persians because they are so inbred. But despite her stupidity she was the sweetest cat I have ever met.

I will always wonder where she came from, but I hope that my family was able to provide her with a fantastic life. And I hope she is enjoying cat heaven and purring her days away.
