{Get Thrifty}Thursday 04.30.15

I got out for some quick thrifting two weeks ago and scored some great spring and summer tops!
The grey floral and black and white striped tops are tanks(both from Old Navy).  The black and white one is extra long which is great for layering under other pieces.
The other three tops are short sleeved tees (Gap, LOFT and Old Navy).  I've worn them all already and I love them.  Hopefully I'll remember to snap some pics the next time I'm wearing one of them to give you an update.

That's it for today, remember to stop back over tomorrow to check out or link up (or both) to Friday Favorites. We're still looking for co-hosts if you're interested in a low key, short term commitment.

Let's keep in touch!

Spring Breakin'

This year the girls' spring breaks actually intersected for a few days.  It was a busy, whirlwind couple of days for sure!
 We started College Girl's spring break out with some (legal) drinks at a favorite local spot I've been wanting to take her to.
 One night, the girls and I went to Chipotle for dinner and then to see Cinderella. So good!
Their dad had been traveling for work and we had one day where we'd all be together and available-Saturday!  We went to Philly for lunch and tried out BareBurger (thanks for the great rec, Julie!)

 

What were two vegetarians, a vegan and a no-red-meat guy doing at a place known for their burgers?
{Check out that spoon chandelier!}
Well, I had checked out their menu online and they actually had three different kinds of homemade veggie burgers (and turkey burgers for Mr. Click).
They offered us their new brunch menu when we arrived, but we all wanted to try their burgers!
I loved the funky decor.
And these fries!
 This was the "sharing" size and it came with two dipping sauces.


This was the hubby's turkey burger. You can customize them any way you like, there were lots of different toppings and bun options to choose from.....and homemade pickles!

 I was having trouble deciding so I chose one of their menu items called The Farmstead. It was a sweet potato and wild rice burger with cauliflower hummus, tomatoes and baby kale wrapped in collard greens.  Yes, you can get collard greens as one of the bun options.
 Did I mention the fries?
 After all of that food, some walking was in order so we walked down to Rittenhouse Square.
 It was a beautiful (but windy) day in the city.
It was nice to be out but also nice to just hang out at home.
There was an intense Mario Kart competition that night.
 Sunday was Easter and we had a nice, quiet family brunch.
I made Baked Carrot Cake Oatmeal again this year but kicked it up a notch with some coconut whipped "cream".
Miss High School made broiled grapefruit to go with it and it was so good.
 She also made these adorable coconut macaroon nests for Easter dinner.
 I made Best Skinny Eggplant Rollatini With Spinach to take to our Easter dinner at my mother in law's house.
I think it turned out pretty darn well!

(Right before it went in the oven.)
Sadly, College Girl had to head back to school after brunch (she had classes the next day).
Obviously the Easter Bunny had been at my mother in law's house.


 A few photos from our dinner... 
Lots of family and food!

There's my Eggplant Rollatini!
Such a nice day and a fun Spring Break!

Let's keep in touch!
