My mom arrived around 11:30 and we headed out for some shopping(!). After a good hour and a half of shopping in Mount Pleasant's outdoor Town Centre, we stopped for lunch at Hatchell's American Tapas Tavern. They had a sign outside for an unlimited salad bar and we were both craving a mega salad (when am I not craving a mega salad??).
Unfortunately, the restaurant turned out to be very mehhhhh. Our waiter was not attentive and forgot to bring us some of our food. Inside, the restaurant seemed somewhat...unclean? The salad bar was yummy with lots of variety, but seemed like an afterthought (it was sort of shoved in a random back corner). Although I enjoyed the salad I made, I would not go back to this restaurant.
The shopping was MUCH more successful. I found an adorable/unique strapless dress to wear to one of the weddings we have coming up. BONUS- it was on sale for $28.
My mom and I then ran to Publix so she could pick up some items for her and my dad's dinner tonight. My mom is a HUGE Publix fan and they don't have one near their house. Then we headed to the pool for an hour. After saying goodbye to my mom...I finally finished cleaning the house and then started the laundry. I also gave the Frankster a bath. By the time I was done, I was exhausted and did NOT feel like cooking. I threw together a salad of romaine, orange and green peppers, broccoli slaw, apple, pinto beans, and salsa. On the side I had some more tortilla flatbreads (I'm clearly addicted ;)).
