Maurice’s is our favorite store in the whole wide world. I love that Lu & I dress differently and yet can find clothing at Maurice’s – together – that fit our styles perfectly!!! They have a mixture of casual, athletic, business and dressy- seriously we’ve never gone in the store and left empty-handed! I love their graphic tees the best. They always find a way to print exactly what we’re thinking, plus they’re actually cute shirts and not just a catch phrase printed on a craft store t-shirt if ya know what I mean 😉
oh! and they have SHORT size pants!! you may think that’s not a big deal but that’s harder to find than you’d think. and yes they also have long for my tall chicas 🙂 The store also has ALL sizes- there is something for EVERYone!! It’s affordable, good sales, good quality, trendy but not teeny-boppery if that makes sense 🙂 plus they have great accessories, cute shoes, and the best pj’s in the winter!
But what we love most about the store are the ladies inside 🙂 If you live in the DFW area you HAVE to go to Maurice’s at Firewheel Town Center! Victoria and Joy are our people. Even before we became “regulars” we were always so warmly welcomed, and received awesome customer service as we shopped. They’re good at picking out outfit options for customers without being salesy too so if you need guidance, they’re pros! We eventually became known as the mother/daughter duo and even got flak from the ladies when we came without one or the other.
and now we’re official!!!!….
So if you need to feel fabulous, comfy, fancy, all of the above or anything in between- do yourself a favor and go to Maurice’s!!! You’ll thank us later!!! **and ask what the current sales are!!!! There’s ALWAYS a sale going on!!!**
Today Lu & I snuck away from all our responsibilities and went to Claires! Yes, that’s right, you heard me correctly….we went to Claires 🙂 I (Su) had been thinking about getting another cartilage piercing and decided today was THE DAY! but I couldn’t do it without my Partner in Crime Lu!
Back Story! One of my favorite memories is for my 16th birthday Lu let me skip school and took me to Claires to get my 2nd ear piercing and she got her 3rd. We felt like we were doing something baaad and rebellious 🙂
so when I decided to get this piercing I knew it had to be with Lu on a weekday morning when we should be working 🙂 I mean we’re all about traditions- THIS is a tradition we should keep alive!!! I tried talking her into a cartilage piercing also…maybe next time ha
It turned out super cute and then we went shopping and out to lunch! Yay for escaping our responsibilities for a couple of hours 🙂
Well, it’s that time of year again. Yes it is St. Patrick’s Day which can be a fun day to celebrate for most people. But in our family it has a whole different meaning. As you see, Su was born on this day. Through her younger years she truly believed the parties, parades and balloons were all for her. Everyone seemed to celebrate her birthday! So with that established in the early years, Su’s birthday is always a party. And don’t you think it only happens on that day – no no no – it is a week long event. We like to call it the SUpalooza or The Week of Su. It usually begins with a shopping trip and lunch just for the two of us. Next comes the pre-parade night where the family gather to eat a special homecooked meal that will help us prepare for the next few days. The parade will follow the next day and of course there is always green beer.
Then the finale is the gathering that takes place in a fun and festive location of all friends and family to celebrate in Su style – Green attire, crazy hair and accessories, lots of food and fun.
Honestly it is great! I admire Su for fully enjoying her birthday. Sometimes we play those special days down and I think that is a shame. Life should be lived fully. Birthdays are a gift and should ALWAYS be celebrated. From day one Su has been a person worth celebrating so if she wants a Week of Su then I say “YOU GO GIRL!” Happy Birthday Sweet Su and here’s to many more!
Su here!!! I wanted to add our reviews of the places we went this weekend!!! First up: Tupps Brewery in McKinney! first of all, this is the PERFECT place for families to go for St Patrick’s Day festivities!!! The music, the atmosphere- it was spot on! They had a whole area set up for kids to play- lots of activities, crafts, they had a blast! Parents were able to drink green beer and there were no lines!!! They had beer passes this year so you were able to get your beer and go! Tupps is a fun place to go on a regular day too 😉 They have a new fruit based beer: Peach Apricot Wheat that would be perfect to drink while sitting at the brewery listening to music 🙂 Next up! Legacy Hall in Plano!! so this was our first time going here- wow it’s so cool! There are like 20 different restaurants surrounding the stage – all VERY affordable and something for everyone. Keith and I had 4 street tacos with chips and guac for $20! I will say where they get you though is alcohol prices so be ready. The best deal we could find is getting a bucket o’ beers for $20-25. It’s both indoors and outdoors with awesome seating everywhere and fire pits and heaters galore so even though it was night in March we were super comfortable outside! We saw lots of families there which is always a plus so we’ll be back!! Last but not least is Tricky Fish in Cityline area of Richardson! I love this place ahh it’s so good. We always get Cracklins to start- yall they make pork rinds and they come out hot and yep they make the crackling sounds!! We highly recommend those!! We went for brunch but everyone ended up getting the salad bc it’s THAT good- they grilled romaine leaves- like the whole stalk- and serve it with roasted okra, a couple of other goodies and then I love it with salmon on top…ahhh I’m hungry just thinking about it!! Their brunch drink menu is impressive. They have a few options for mimosas but I had a La Paloma- fresh grapefruit, tequila, lime and then they top theirs with a little champagne! ahhh it was go good 🙂
But I will say that every place we go….what makes them so amazing are the people I go there with. I’m very grateful for my family and friends!!!
Eating healthy and eating out don’t always go hand in hand but with Su & Lu ANYTHING is possible!! We had read about a Keto Bowl option now available at Chipotle and decided today was the day to give it a go. We walk up to the counter and goofily ask for the keto bowl we’ve read about. (and yep, we asked it like that) Luckily for us, she knew what we were talking about- bc we sure didn’t- and starts building our bowl. Lettuce, steak, guac, sour cream, cheese- our eyes were getting big and our tummies were getting excited! then we got to salsa and not thinking twice we said yep! I mean seriously it’s the basic salsa they offer to everyone so that tomato-y taste with a little heat would be perfect!!!
We shoulda said no…. I’ll let our pic speak for the flavor….
Topo Chico couldn’t help our situation. Lu even took the steak and wiped it with napkins so we could at least eat the meat. It was pretty pathetic- even for us. But of course we laughed until we cried- and then cried because we were in pain- and vowed to never have the salsa again!!!
Keto Bowl Update! I went back a few days later and ordered the same thing WITHOUT salsa this time and it was AMAZING!!! I felt like I was eating something awful for me but left feeling satisfied and still able to feel my tongue and lips!!!
Su here! I just wanted to take a moment to give a shout out to my madre Lu on International Women’s Day!! She’s so cool y’all 🙂
Today was one of those days that could’ve been labeled ehhh but what I love about hangin with Lu is that no Day is ever ehhh… every day becomes an adventure! Even the simplest things…
We went and got our free IWD pins at World Market bc we do all things free! We had noooooo time but suddenly a text comes through for a free pin and we become free as a bird!!! They’re so cute too!!!
And just like that our day was an adventure 🙂
Bag update also!!!!! Today’s bag was filled with trash from the kids room! Wow… I didn’t realize I would fill a bag that quickly either!! It was a little shocking to find that much trash in their room!!!
This is legit one of our fave quotes to use and most people have NOOOO idea what it’s from!!! It’s from The Torkelsons!! Chuckie Lee Torkelson would use a manly voice and say it to girls and it was so funny!! get on youtube folks, you’ll thank us later 🙂 (and yes that’s Mouth from One Tree Hill)
But seriously, HELLOOOOO!!! Welcome to the Adventures of Su & Lu! We are a mom & daughter duo – we be like best friends yo – and love to do alllll the fun things!! We love local restaurants, brews & wine outings, shopping, exploring the area, traveling in our RVs, being with our family, and soooo much more!!!!
