Girls’ Night Out: Spoonie Edition

Last Thursday, Mamie and I had decided that it was high time for us to have a GNO (girls’ night out) and headed to the Queen City! She had discovered that Clinton Kelly (from TLC’s What Not to Wear) was going to be at Macy’s in Southpark so we headed out for an evening of fun and hopefully some fashion advice!

Sadly, there must have been some avid fans that camped out ALL afternoon in line because by the time we got there (at the event start time) the line was already long and they only guaranteed the first 50 in line a chance to talk to Clinton one on one (don’t think that part was advertised). We hung out in line anyway and chatted about clothes, family, and Disney. We chatted up people around us in line. It was a fun time! We saw some cute clothes and I was reminded why I don’t shop at Macy’s (too poor! lol). But we were able to get some good pictures anyways:

This was as close as we got but at least we got to see him in the flesh!

He does talk with his hands as much in person as he does on the show!

Don’t know why this one turned out so blurry!

After hanging out at Macy’s for awhile, we headed to P.F. Changs! I had never been there before but had heard wonderful things! I was never a big Chinese eater but really missed it once going gluten-free so to hear that they have a WHOLE page dedicated to gluten-free items was awesome (even dessert!) so it took me awhile to figure out what to order! We started with the lettuce wraps:

I then had the Spicy Chicken and rice (which was the GF version of General Tso’s Chicken) and it was so good! They give you a ton too! Both John & I had the leftovers for dinner the next night so while the entrees are pricey, they give you PLENTY of food! I was so stuffed that I didn’t get to try the GF dessert but next time, I will definitely save room!

We had an amazing time! It was nice to get out of the house child-free and enjoy a night out with a girlfriend! Next time, we’re seeking out this Fuel Pizza for some gluten-free pizza!

I love hearing from you!

  1. Sounds like you had a GREAT night, despite not getting to talk one-on-one with Clinton. Although I don’t eat GF, it is great to know that their GF offering are tasty.

  2. Good for you! A girl’s night out sounds awesome.

    I really like Clinton Kelly, even though my own sense of fashion is severely lacking. How cool that you saw him in person.

    And PF Chang’s is great – I thought since it was a chain, the food probably wasn’t too good, but a friend took me there on a a visit to Oklahoma, and I loved it – those lettuce wraps are awesome!

    Glad you had a much-deserved night off!


    • I think we both went through several outfits before deciding! We can asking each other on twitter “what are you wearing?” Now I really want to get on the show!

  3. Thanks for stopping by my blog during last week’s SITS Comment Cocktail Hour! I totally love a good GNO & the lettuce wraps from PF Changs are my all time favorite! I just went out with some girlfriends & our kids to Pei Wei (the fast food version of PF) and had the lettuce wraps for lunch! Yum!

  4. I’d be afraid he’d whisk me off to the show! Or afraid that he wouldn’t???

    Congrats on being 1st for comment hour!

  5. That is so awesome! What a great event- especially when you caught him by chance. Sounds like you had a great time.

  6. ahhh!!! mamie and pf changs…two of my favorite things :))
    you girls are SOOOO cute together! what a fun night!
