Saturday: Melt, Thrifting, and Roller Derby.

Today has been pretty fantastic, so far. We woke up kinda early since we have Penny staying with us, and then while Nick showered and meandered around, I watched an episode or two of Gilmore Girls; I've been hooked lately. Then we got ready to have lunch at Melt, a really fantastic, organic deli that has tons of DELICIOUS vegan entrees and desserts. Today I had a custom vegetarian burger, which was their homemade seitan with tomato, cheese, mayo and dijon mustard with a side of rosemary redskins. TOTALLY regretting not taking pictures, now!!

Afterwards, we headed over to the new thrift shop that opened up in February, and I found, yet again, some really awesome stuff. We got a reading lamp for the night stand near the bed, a few awesomely colorful kitchen towels, and I got tons of books that were on my Amazon wish list. I also got a really, really old version of the Parker Brothers' board game, Pay Day, annnnndddddd.... Harry Potter Trivia! Woo! And double win? ALL of the pieces to both games were still in the box. This hardly ever happens...!!

Then, later tonight, we'll probably have dinner with some friends before heading to the roller derby. I've never been, but I hear it's pretty fun, so I can't wait!! :) 

happy weekend!
