James and I have hit up the Fresno Fashion Fair mall twice since we've been here and each time we passed by the water fountains I told myself I would take James back there so he could splash around and have some fun. Even though it's cooled off a bit, we headed back to Fashion Fair yesterday with a towel in hand to do some more shopping, and splashing.
Yesterday was a little bit of a rough day. I woke up exhausted because I stayed up most of the night being sad and homesick. Traveling to new cities can be all fun and games for awhile, but it's also really exhausting and it can be rough not ever seeing your own home and being far from your friends and family. I guess I got a little down on myself. The good news is that my husbands next work location is back in Bakersfield so he will be able to commute each day and I can be home. Curing the blues called for a quick shopping fix at Anthropologie, the fountains and playground for James, and then drive thru Panera Bread for me and Sonic for James. Panera is my jam right now. I've been driving thru that dang Panera Bread every single night getting a bowl of healthy soup for dinner. I've already racked up enough points on my Panera card for free pasteries and coffee which I will be putting to good use very soon. After we picked up lunch it was back to the hotel and into our pajamas. Yes, I was in my pajamas at 1pm and I was okay with that.
I woke up feeling really good this morning, I have coffee in hand, and James and I are off to spend the day at the playground. I'm hoping I might be able to squeeze a nap in there, too.
Fountains call for the most simple outfit you can find which in our case was a tank from American Apparel and velour pants from Zara Kids.
