Trying new things

This weekend was about like any other weekend as I tried to find things to do and places to go. My daughter was home from college, so like always, we got to catch up on a lot of talk. I love the bond we have and can talk about anything just like best friends. After I got away from the office chair, we decided to go to the mall and look around for new things to wear, Christmas gift ideas and ......CUPCAKES!
Yes, there is a new cupcake place in the mall. I will be talking more about that little experience in one of my upcoming post. [spoiler] We are currently on a mission right now to find the best cupcake.

Sunday was quite nice too. After hearing a great sermon at church, me and my daughter went out to eat with my Mom and Dad at a local Chinese buffet. Those are always good on Sunday. I wish I had gotten a picture of my Dad as he tried his first bite of sushi. Needless to say he did not like it but it cured his curiosity about eating it. Its just one of those foods that if you don't like it, you wish you did.

Sadly we had to take my daughter back to school. This always saddens me. My husband will usually take me out afterwards and that usually cheers me up. This time before heading back to the house, we stopped at a Brixx Pizza. Its new in the area and we always like to try the new places at least once.
It was nice and clean inside.
It doesn't take much to entertain me so I thought it was pretty neat that beside our table was a wall made of chalk board and pieces of chalk on the ledge.
I was tempted the whole time, and yes, eventually I wrote my initials on it.

Then there's the pizza. The pizzas are all made with thin crust and are all one size (The size that was to much for one but not quite enough for two, but since we try to eat light, it was perfect for us). They had many different kinds of pizzas to choose from. After trying to decide on the one we wanted, we finally decided on the veggie pizza. We chose the wheat crust and It came with mushrooms, peppers, tomatoes, onions, broccoli and cheese. I do not know what they were thinking, but broccoli does not belong on a pizza. But it was good! Next time I think Ill try the Margarita pizza.

I am a fan of UNC Charlotte 49ers. I guess because my Daughter and other family members have gone there and that's a good enough excuse for right now. But It will not be long until they will be starting there first football team in the year 2013.

The football stadium will start out with 15,300 seats with the ability to expand to 40,000. You can tell the new team is on its way when you see not only the tuition prices going up, but you see more fan memorabilia in the stores around the area.

Just the other day I found these cute "Niner Nuts" sitting on the counter right next to the others cans for UNC (#1), NC State, and Wake Forest. I hope eventually they will be right up there with the big boys and I will have a new team to cheer for.
The next thing I did was sent a can of these to our friends that live in New Jersey. There daughter also goes to UNCC and is my daughters best friend and former roommate. I think they will get a laugh out it.
 Now what did I do with my Carolina cup?
