I started Saturday morning with a glorious run! While I didn’t feel all that great due to lack of sleep and not eating the best, there was no complaining coming from my mouth because I couldn’t get over how wonderful it was to run in the mild temperatures!! Once again, I completed 7 miles in 60 minutes, just as the sun was coming up–my favorite time to run!
Saturday morning took us to downtown Sacramento to a little cafe for breakfast.
Did you know Sacramento is “the city of trees?” I had no idea, but there were a hundreds of trees lining the streets downtown. It was really pretty!
We ate at Cafe Bernardo.
I wanted something light and refreshing, so I ordered a bowl of yogurt with seasonal fruit. I was pretty disappointed when the “seasonal” fruit ended up being: apples, bananas, and dried cranberries. Seriously?!?!
Oh well, it was still delicious!
I also ordered a side of toast and jam. I love raspberry jam!

That afternoon, we hit up the mall for some shopping. I was really excited to go to a mall that offered a lot of stores we don’t have in Anchorage: Crate and Barrel, Pottery Barn, Bath and Body Works, and H&M just to name a few.
During the course of our shopping trip to the mall, we purchased a few personal items as well as a couple of Christmas gifts.
For lunch, we discovered Pluto’s. Neither of us had heard of it, but the food on people’s plates looked good and the prices were reasonable.
The salad bar.
You pick what kind of lettuce and dressing you want plus 7 different toppings!!
My salad contained spinach + garbanzo beans + tomatoes + pear + walnuts + blue cheese + croutons. (I can’t remember what the 7th item was!?!?)
It was mighty good! A little heavy on the dressing though.
Craig ordered a portabella mushroom sandwich with onion rings.
We split both entrees and really liked both of them!
After seeing the frozen yogurt stand in the mall earlier, I knew this was what was going to be on the menu for dessert!
I’ve been reading about frozen yogurt places on so many blogs that I was incredibly excited to finally try some! (We don’t have any place like this in Anchorage.)
pumpkin + cookies ‘n’ cream + vanilla frozen yogurt
brownie bites + caramel sauce + coconut + Snicker pieces + blackberries + raspberries + mangos + blueberries
Craig loves gummy bears in his frozen yogurt!
Attack of the bears.
Our day included a lot of food!
That evening, we headed to Fat’s Asia Bistro for dinner.
Fat’s reminded me of P.F. Chang’s China Bistro.

Well, this is going to have to be a 3-part recap of our, so I’ll be recapping the final day when I get a chance!
