Girls' Night Out

A couple weekends ago, when Rowan and the DH were attending an anime convention in Los Angeles, Kate and I had a girls' night out.

We had dinner at Nordstrom Cafe.


 All done!


Kate picked out some new shoes. (They're rainbow, sparkly, and they light up.)


We visited Anthropologie. (And the Disney Store. And the Sweet Factory.)


We had good times. ^_^


You may have noticed that we removed Disqus as our commenting system. Now that Blogger's native commenting system handles threaded replies, we decided to revert to it, as with Disqus, any comments that were left via a mobile device (like smart phones, etc) were "lost" until I re-imported them, and even then, there was no guarantee that the import would necessarily work. This seems a shame, as more and more people are accessing the web via mobile devices (myself, included) and so, despite the disarray that will exist in some of the posts with more threaded responses in the comments (our first book club post, for instance lists all the comments in sequential order, rather than threaded, which of course renders most of the discussion into...well, nonsense), I think this will be better, overall, in the long run.

At any rate, I hope you're all having a lovely weekend. Stay warm and dry, everybody!

  11. I love the Nordstrom Cafe. It is great that they all seem to be so kid friendly! I just visited mine recently and was so glad that so many families had it as a nicer non-food court option at my nearby mall.

    Kate is so adorable! I love that you got to have a fun girls' day out together!

    I've been thinking about getting rid of Disqus myself. Thanks for sharing your thoughts on the matter.

    1. I really love Nordstrom Cafe. The food is good and well-priced, and it's totally kid-friendly.

      My only qualm about having gotten rid of Disqus is that I don't know if people get notified via email when someone replies to their comments, in Blogger, the way they do with Disqus. If you are, can you let me know? Thanks!
