Today, I took a personal day. I needed some me time and time to get some homework done with this weekend with all that we have planned. I also had a couple errands to run. In the morning we went to breakfast at a French and American Cafe, Cafe Des Amis. I am Boujee (as you know) and I am a bit of snob, but Drew and I went to Paris and we went to England. We have been to great restaurants and not so great restaurants. The food at Cafe Des Amis is awesome, but the staff and service is a C- it can be so much better and should be so much better.
When you walk in, you got to the counter, place your order, pay for your meal and then seat yourself. You have to get your coffee yourself, it is self serve as well as the bottled water, and bottled drinks. I hate that. If I am going out to eat I want to be waited on. The least they did was bring you the food once it was ready. I ordered the French toast and it was served on a baguette. It was amazing. The food was so good. Drew got a bacon and avocado omelet. I won’t hurry back to the restaurant at all, but the food was so good.
I don’t know what do you guys think of having to serve yourself pretty much at cafes? Does it bother you?
After breakfast, I went home and started to work on my homework and he went to his annual PCP appointment. I worked on homework until about 11:15am. Then I got ready to meet one of my old colleagues from the radio station where I used to work. He was hooking me up with lunch and Disturbed tickets. I was not hungry at all but he treated me to lunch. I had a small grilled chicken salad. It was good to catch up with him, so much has changed there since I left.
After lunch, I stopped to see my old boss from Fastest Labs, Chris and then I talked to Earl the maintenance man, who also does the maintenance for the radio station where I used to work. The buildings are in the same office complex.
After visiting with my old friends, I went to get my oil change then to the goodwill. At the goodwill, I snagged a blue Calvin Klein dress for $6 dollars and a top that had the tags on it still. The top was $58.00 and never worn. If that is not Boujee on a budget then I don’t know what is. I have become such a good goodwill shopper. I have always found a few things when I go. I think I am going to wear a blue dress to the ballet tomorrow. I will be sure to post some pictures.
Also, I was able to set up my interviews for my project for Student Development Theory. All-in-all it was a nice and relaxing day.
