Salad, shoes, cupcakes & shopping
On Friday I wanted to do a little shopping so I ended up at Westfield Mall in San Jose. Just so happens, Santana Row is right next to it.
The mall is huge with a mix of high end stores like Macy’s, Pottery Barn along with Forever 21. My kind of place!
After seeing less than half of it, I decided I’d rather be outside, so I went to Santana Row.
It is absolutely beautiful. You can walk up & down the streets, stop for a meal at one of the cute restaurants. All of them have outdoor dining, which I love. There’s even a tequila bar, if your into that kind of thing.
After lunch, check out the shopping. There’s a Coach, Lululemon, Anthropology, H&M (my current favorite) along with a ton of others.
I had lunch at Plutos. It’s a trendy restaurant with made to order salads.
My chicken salad & ice tea were awesome. I can’t wait to go back.
Kara’s Cupcake’s was right next door. It was meant to be.
I went with the Meyer Lemon.
It was really good. I especially liked the tangy center filling.
I’d give them 4 out of 6 cake pops. If they offered a dairy free cupcake, I’d add one more!
I stopped by Roadrunner Sports to get fitted for running shoes.
I love my Mizuno’s but wanted to see if there’s another brand that might be a better fit for me.
After a run on the treadmill & a few other test’s my results were:
YOUR PERFECT SHOE CATEGORY: Neutral
YOUR PERFECT SIZE: 7 WIDTH: B
I tried on 5 pairs of shoe’s including my beloved Mizunos but I really liked the way these Asics Gel Excel 33’s fit.
They were really comfortable with a very low ankle, which it a really big thing for me.
I didn’t buy them because I have a coupon for 20% off only valid next weekend. So I’m going to think about.
If they were neon pink, they probably would have found their way home with me.
