Weekend delights

I was lucky enough to have my mom come up to Madison for a visit on Saturday. She stayed the weekend and we had the ultimate girl’s weekend, complete with yummy treats, shopping, a sad movie and pedicures.

Our treats for the weekend (a sort of random assortment, but delicious nonetheless):
Green River. A bright green, lime-flavored soft drink that originated in Chicago in 1919. It’s kind of a mix between Mountain Dew, Mello Yello and yummy lime flavors. Back in the ’60s this fountain drink was available in some drugstore fountains. Total throwback.

Enchiladas. Tortillas rolled around a delicious cheese filling and covered with a spicy(ish) chili pepper sauce. Enough said.
Pre-cooked, before the cheese became all gooey and melty.

Mini brownies. We were all about these little brownies last month; so good we had to have a repeat session. Store-bought, but totally worth it.

The movie that will make you cry no matter what, whether you’re a dog lover or not:
Hachi: A Dog’s Tale. With Richard Gere and the cutest little Akita–a Japanese breed of dog–you’ve ever seen, this movie is a can’t-miss. Tissues? Mandatory.

Spa pedicures, including a paraffin treatment:
If you’ve never been to Envy Nails on University Avenue (halfway between Hilldale Mall and Campus Drive), you’re missing out. Good service, awesome massage chairs and OPI. My color of choice? OPI Coney Island Cotton Candy.
