Shopping Trip

Last weekend Abby and Anna and I went to Wichita to do a little Back-to-School shopping for Abby. Susan met us there. (I know-and I do believe in shopping local-but it was a sister thing)

We got in late Friday and spent the night with Kent and Jenni and Peter, who is super cute. They're getting pretty excited about Epic Church, and it was fun to catch up with them for a minute.

Then we dropped Anna off with Sophie, which you saw earlier this week.

We met Susan at The Donut Whole in Downtown Wichita. It was really fun and funky, with all sorts of crazy cake donuts. We Alsop girls have long been fans of what we call "Chocolate Chocolate Chocolate" and what the Donut Whole succinctly calls "Triple Chocolate". Chocolate cake donut, chocolate frosting, chocolate sprinkles. We each got one of those. Delish.

I also tried the Maple Bacon donut, which was actually pretty good! Like pancakes and syrup and bacon all together in a donut.

Abby tried the Fluffernutter, peanut-buttery and sweet, and Susan an Oatmeal Cookie.

I give it two thumbs up.

Then we went to buy shoes from Finney. He was a great salesman. We went in for one pair of sneaks for Abby, and bought two pair each.
I am in love with my neon pink boat shoes.

Then we went to Towne East and shopped for hours. Anna joined us in the afternoon-she loves trying things on.

We were too late to get into the new good sushi place (called at 5:30 and they were already full all night!) so we tried another place, but it wasn't very good.

We finally rolled into G.C. about 2 a.m., tired but stylish.

I'm so glad that you liked the Donut Whole! Finney is a great salesman--just like his daddy.
