I have been searching what feels like everywhere for a striped maxi dress. I've exhausted myself looking at a billion different places online for just a simple striped dress. Then on Wednesday I went to the mall to order my aforementioned J.Crew bikini and mosied on into Gap which was right across the way and there it was. It was hanging so innocently in the store, as if it was just waiting for me to come along.  I've considered the possiblity that I have a shopping addicition since I knew immediately that I was not leaving the store without it. I'm not going worry until I start hiding bills in places like my freezer.

On another note SSBF went out to dinner this weekend to Olive Garden. It's one of SSBF's favorites and we used to go all the time in Michigan but not so much snce we moved to Maryland. I can honestly say I think it was the worst experience I've ever had at Olive Garden. When our name was called the hostess that was seating us didn't even say a word, she just started walking toward the dining area. We didn't know we were supposed to follow her until one of the other hostesses told us to. Then I didn't realize until we sat down that we weren't even given proper menus. I tried 3 times to get someone's attention but they kept walking right by. Finally, our waiter came to take our drink order and had to find us menus. When we did get a menu they were completely trashed, SSBF's was practically ripped in two. Not to mention the floors were filthy.

It was awful. Luckily the food was still delicious.  

ps. How cute is SSBF? I will never know why he doesn't let me take pictures of him!
