So I always get ridiculously excited when Target debuts a new designer line. It’s kind of an obsession that I get there as soon as it arrives so I can check everything out before it gets picked over. I’ve been looking SO forward to the Liberty of London line. The cruiser is awesome, as is pretty much everything on this page. Needless to say, I was really excited yesterday to see that they had already put out all of the Liberty women’s line at my local Super Target- especially since, according to all reports I’d read, the line wasn’t set to debut until Sunday.

Unfortunately Jack was fussy and I knew better than to try to drag him to the dressing room, so I headed home and decided to take my chances and check back today. My mom came over to hang out with Jack, so I booked it to Super T and sprinted to the clothes. I was scoping out the racks when I realized that there were a LOT of Target employees restocking the area. Then I saw that they weren’t actually restocking- they were REMOVING the clothes. Like putting them on rolling racks and carting them back to the stockroom. I overheard one employee talking about how they’d gotten into trouble for putting the line out early and had to wait until Sunday.

Which is when I grabbed a top and booked it out of the clothing department and to the cashier.

Heeheeheee. So I now have one awesome Liberty of London top. Contraband.

(Apparently it’s actually a robe… but who the hell wears a waist-length robe??)

And you know I’ll be back on Sunday to check out the rest of the line.

Oh yeah, this is a food blog isn’t it?

Central Market had this “European Yogurt” on sale:

I tried the Black Currant flavor. It’s rich and thicker than the usual (American?) yogurt. Not quite Greek yogurt thick, but still. And even though my favorite candle in the world is currant scented (Votivo), I wasn’t a fan of the flavor. It was more passion fruit than currant. And I hate passion fruit.

Topped with cereal and grapes:

For lunch I microwaved some of Monday night’s leftover Minestrone soup, along with an Ezekiel english muffin topped with Sabra hummus and bruschetta topping.

Another gorgeous day. I Shredded and then we headed out for a nice long walk… I am so ready for Spring.

Brian came home from work, saw what I was cooking, then asked if there was anything that constituted a “real meal.” Awesome. So I had brown rice, lentils and roasted broccoli topped with a homemade vinaigrette (olive oil, red wine vinegar, curry powder, cumin and kosher salt).

And Brian had a grilled cheese and bacon sandwich. And a beer.

I bought two new books today: Clean Food and The Happiness Project. I’m pretty excited to get into both of them. Hope everyone has a great weekend!

    I ordered The Happiness Project as soon as I saw the author on the Today Show! Sadly, I doubt I’ll have time to read it any time in 2010. I hate this job. That’s the irony, maybe the book will make me happier about my job but the job prevents me from reading it!

    I’m constantly told that I buy only “ingredients” and not “food” at the store. :)

    I’ll have to check out Target, that robe/top is cute!
