Downtown Adventures

I don't know why you don't take me downtown/
Like you've got anywhere better to be

Yesterday, Marissa (one of my very best friends) and I randomly decided to hang out...She was free and I was free, so it just worked out. Plus, it's summer, and we've been saying that we need to be a little more spontaneous and just DO things. 
We weren't totally sure of what we were going to do, but we decided to go downtown to explore. We always have the best adventures there. We might not have a lot to do in our town, but our downtown area is starting to boom. There are a lot of restaurants, live music and plenty of antique stores. It's a fun place to go and try new things. 

We had coffee at one of the most popular places in town, Dagny's. And we talked for a couple hours. It wasn't very crowded, but it busier as we stayed. It's a cute little contemporary place. I had a wild berry smoothie, and it was SO refreshing! Marissa had a white tea with pomegranate syrup. 

It was getting later in the afternoon, so we decided to check out one of our favorite stores, "In Your Wildest Dreams." We decided to park, and thought we were a bit closer, but realized we were a street up still, so we had to walk. That was kind of funny, because it was incredibly hot and we weren't totally sure of where we were going. We talked with this post office guy, but he wasn't really sure where the store was either, so we just wandered until we found it. On our way there, we decided to go into one of the music stores here that I'd never been in and we were "meowed" at while walking to the antique store. That was really weird, although I missed it. Marissa informed me...So, there's that. 

 Now, there are three sections of the store - clothes/costumes/shoes and two separate levels of furniture. We were mentally planning out our future apartment, because we think we'd be the perfect roomies... We want very eclectic, very "Monica Geller"....You know. We were freaking out about so many things, because they have a ton of great stuff and some pretty good deals. It's kind of our favorite. 

By that time, we were hot, sweaty and felt so gross. We were ready to cool down and head back to my house, but first we grabbed drinks from Sonic. They were so tasty! We came back to my house and chatted with my mom for a bit, then Marissa had to take off.

It's so good to get out of the house and spend time with good friends :) That's just one of the many good things about summer.

That's all for now,
