The weekend started off a little rough because Ivan was sick. I got sick from the climate change when we went to Arizona and he got sick right when we got back. A 70 degree change can do that.
On Sunday I got to spend the day with my mom. We went dress shopping for MSU’s Barristers Ball. It’s a scholarship fundraiser for the law school and Ivan and I went last year. My mom loves dress shopping, so anytime I have a formal event, we go shopping together.
Just like last year, we drove down to Twelve Oaks Mall in Novi to search Nordstroms. Last year was the first time I’d ever set foot inside a Nordstroms and I fell in love. I bought both my dress and my shoes there. I got just as lucky this time. I bought a short, beaded Adrianna Papell dress and matching Jessica Simpson pumps.
We also had lunch at the Bristo inside Nordstrom; Cafe Bistro. I love going there with my mom, it makes me feel like I’m in an old movie. Back when ladies “lunched” inside a department store when shopping.
Plus, the food is always spot on. I just love their fries and kalamata olive aïoli. It’s purple, creamy and absolutely delicious. Total girl food.
