Downtown: Artwalk and Sushi
Yesterday was like Christmas when my mom arrived for her visit! She brought me bags of goodies from home with some more clothes, movies, kitchen gadgets, and a set of weights…then stocked me up even more with a fun trip to Target. I felt spoiled ;)
We spent the night downtown, for the Art Walk, where local shops and business promote local art galleries. My mom and I are pretty clueless when it comes to art. My favorite “piece” was this festive gem:
Think you’ll be seeing these at Victoria’s Secret soon?? This gallery was a collection of funky and spunky homemade “bras” that went towards breast cancer awareness foundations. We loved seeing so many people out and about downtown!
After walking around for about an hour, we were pretty hungry. I had sushi on my mind all week, and apparently everyone else in town did too because we had a one hour wait. WORTH IT:
My mom and I split two rolls – the Autumn Roll and Godzilla Roll. The Autumn Roll had sweet potato! You know how much I love my sweet potato… It also had raw tuna. I was a little nervous, but I’m alive and well today. ;)
And some veggies make it a complete meal!
Loving having my mom here and enjoying some time off-campus :)

It is always nice to have mom around. At least it is for me. :)
Always, indeed :)
Awww you two are too sweet! It was a FABULOUS visit and that sushi was delicious. We learned that we are not the “artsy” type. The thousand dollar picture of colored sand or a childlike scribble of something is not our description of ART. LOL
