Small Girl, Big Ideas

Alchemy

This weekend was the first time Jason and I were able to go on a little adventure to some where new since moving back in together. We chose to try a restaurant in Hampden, a suburb of Baltimore, that ended up being closed. Fortunately, there is no shortage of independent, yummy sounding restaurants in the area. We ended up at a small restaurant called alchemy, enjoying some delicious sandwiches and French onion soup.


Then, we proceeded to spend the rest of the day buying Jason new clothing since he hadn't been shopping since before our wedding, which was indeed, sometime over 2 years ago. I convinced (and by that I mean coerced) him into a dark red sweatshirt kind of like Nick on New Girl. These shoes are incredibly comfy and will be now coming to our upcoming Disney trip because they were great for a day of walking around stores.

  4. Those sandwiches look so delicious!
    You must be so excited for Florida! It's always good when shoes are both fashionable and comfy. That's a hard combo to find sometimes! Even some flats end up giving me blisters and have that sort of hard texture to them that make them uncomfortable.

  14. I know exactly where you are in the Baltimore (Hampden area), but I've never been to that restaurant before. Looks yummy to say the least. Of course I adore your little bird printed dress - looks lovely with the trench. My hubs is a shopoholic...probably worse than me (sometimes this is not a good thing...hehe). xo Marisa
