Oh yeah…I got paid today. And one of the FL malls ripped me for all I’m worth. But really, I got all this stuff for about $93…which I think is pretty good!
Ok, I did go into William Sonoma to look at all the pretty things…and contemplated buying this entire knife set because well, I have two Wustoff knives right now and want them all…but the $500+ with the wooden block…it was hard to say yes
Instead I went over to Express to try some dresses on…this one was so cute! I could totally use it for a night on the town…cause you know, I totally do that all the time and would buy this for such an occasion. Psssh.
Price was a bit steep for me…for something i have no idea when I would wear it…
But I really really liked this one. The top white part was cotton, it cinched around the bottom of my ribs, and then was pleated by fitted towards my knees, and even had pockets! (The freak’n black door in the background makes the dress so hard to see…so pretty!)
Sadly it also had this price:
Uh, no. Sorry, can’t do that. Mom, birthday? My 1/2 Birthday just passed!?!??!
Instead I went to Crate & Barrel and broke the bank (not really, I’m way to cheap) getting some new plates and bowls. These are some of them. You will see the other two if you make you surpass the boredom I’ve already presented you with and read about my dinner.
I then hit up Bath and Body Works for a few new Shower Gels and one of their new summer scents they were selling for a buck. How could I pass it up? The lemon vanilla smelled AWESOME!
I went over to Aeropostale for some clothes and walked out with…one shirt and underwear. The underwear were legit purchases as some of mine have been ruined due to dirty field work! They no longer are their original colors…I would have come home with a pair of shorts also, but I was to lazy to go back and find a larger size when the ones I tried on were just a weeeee bit too tight.
And last but no least, MY FIRST PURCHASE EVER from HOLLISTER. Yes, first time Hollister shopper right here. I tend to stray from big name labels and such because well…these guys are all about promoting CA and blah blah…somehow it just kinda bothers me. Just like Abercrombie and American Eagle (though I do buy from them often)…I’m weird like that.
The whole shopping trip was supposed to take place with Meredith but sadly we had a bit of a miss communication and time lapse and missed each other by minutes at the mall! Boo! But, we did eventually meet up at WF, so the journey up there was not in vein…of course for Meredith and the shopping!
Anyhow, I had today off (thank god, and I finally got a good nights sleep) and started off the morning slow as I wanted. I had a breakfast similar to yesterday but with PB instead of Sunbutter and added in some strawberries. Freak’n delish.
I went out and sweated my brains out for 6.1 miles before trying to meet Meredith at the mall. After waiting until noon and finding out we missed each other, I was ravenous and devoured my packed lunch in two minutes…in front of William’s Sonoma of course. I couldn’t wait to go in!
For lunch I had
inhaled a Jazz Apple and a Bagel Thin w/ hummus, tomato and a fried egg. Tasty.
I did my shopping thang…and before heading to pick up some produce snacked on a Superfood Odwalla bar while driving…I love those bars. I need to invest stock in them.
By the time I got home I was a hot and sticky mess (thunderstorms rolling in = HUMIDITY) so I opted for a cold dinner. What better than leftovers, fresh bread and sweet fruit?
I started off by having the last of my pineapple (sad it’s all gone; it’s ok, I picked up some more oranges to replace it) and some strawberries…
(PS See the new plate? Square with rounded edges and clear)
And to dip in my cold, leftover black bean soup (which I am now dubbing Black Bean Gazpacho) I had three very small pieces of fresh sourdough bread from the bakery…it’s rare I buy anything but whole wheat…but sourdough, sheepherder’s and pumpernickel are a different story…
And since I at the those fruits separately, I had the last of my TJ’s Chocolate Pudding with about 3T of Kashi Go Lean Crunch. Nice and cool…
(PS New bowl here too…I was on a see through kind of bowl/plate purchasing spree today…)
And now I’m chilling out, and debating whether or not to hit up the local winery for some fruit wines, live music and new company…um, what am I waiting for? Oh yeah, I’m tired.
Hope you’ve got a great Friday night planned! And weekend ones too! (FYI weekend plans were shot out of the water…so don’t know what I’ll be up to this weekend…)
