Highway to Neverland

I must go to bed in 20 min so here's a quick post recapping my day! Destination: States

Challenge: to buy boots
Approx 8:15AM - off to the states w/ Nad and her 'rents!
Long lineup at the border (1hr plus)-- played w/ Nad's new ipod (has games!) which I still find difficult to use :( ... then headed to Costco while the 'rents got new tires and walked over to TJ Maxx (like a Ross) where I found nothing and Ross where I almost bought a dresser/multi-drawer thing for $100 (from $130.. reg $250).. got them to give me a bigger discount 'cause it was all scraped up... I wanted to buy it for around $70... anyway, and I found a kawaii Harajuku Lovers belt bag (notmypics)! After lunch at Wendy's, the 'rents dropped Nad and I off at Bellis Fair where we shopped for over 5 hours where we came across free samples... multiple times haha, I tried on a black and gold-chained Guess dress (suki desu), we saw 2 guys wearing identical pink hoodies and jeans, I tried on silver metallic leggings, & we searched for boots. Nooo luck for me =( Nad got a pair of jeans and a couple things for Dims.. and we both ended up buying long basic black leggings from Target! Then we go back to Costco (Costco ga suki desu!) -- their Costco has so much more variety than ours -- the picture on the right is of their wine bottle selection. They also have a cheese section and the HUGE All American 7lbs Chocolate Cake Nad is hiding behind of on the right hahaha
After that we went to chow a late 9'oclock dinner at a restaurant called Parrot Sisters in Bellingham. Long lineup - waited for over 30 min I think. See below for picture. It was south western/retro chic. I like the retro touch and all... but it's due for a makeover.

Decent-to-large portions - 6/10 food - not so great service.

WHEW that was one quick post! I haven't shopped like that since August! Sad to say, but I have to build up my shopping stamina (whodathought?)
Thanks Nad for today!!

I'll end w/ a couple pics of pics from DBSK's Bonjour Paris Photobooks (daisuki!!! =Love it!)
I wonder if they got to climb to the top of the Arc de Triomphe. I loved it up there... it was so magical for me. The sun was setting and the temperature was the most perfect Arc-de-Triomphe temp ever. Forget the Eiffel Tower.. it's overrated - the Arc de Triomphe should be THE place to propose... but shhh don't wanna share the location! Sigh.. I wanna go back. Same with walking across the Brooklyn Bridge in NY during sunset in August.
Pure contentment right there.

"Sleep Well",
