Things I did this weekend


Things I did this weekend

Hello my loves! Is it really Monday already? Saturday seemed like quite the long day for me, but Sunday just flew by! Not cool. My weekend wasn’t too terribly exciting, but I do have a funny story and some new goodies to share with y’all!

Friday night I was lame and went to be early since I had to be up at 5:00a.m. on Saturday to drive into Houston for my group “long” run for marathon training. So instead of going out or doing anything really, I hung out with these girls and took care of my sick husband.

After our trip to the park!

Usually I wouldn’t have to get up nearly this early, but since we were out in the suburbs at my parents house, I had quite the trek into town. My long run was great. It was my first run with the group and I really enjoyed it. We only had to do 5 miles since it was our first group run, I’m not complaining. After the run, I went back to my car to, well, go home. Crazy, I know. Low and behold, the key to my new car didn’t work. I had removed the key from my clicker to put in the zipper pocket of my running short. For whatever reason, this key did not work! My brand new car. Are you kidding me? We had actually found out a few days prior that the second clicker that was given to us didn’t work. So now we have one clicker and one key that doesn’t work. My car hasn’t even been in my possession for a week. Needless to say, I’m pissed and they aren’t going to enjoy my presence when I march my happy butt in there later this week! I ended up having to ask some random girl sitting on her car if I could use her phone to call the hubs to come get me! 4 tries later, he answered and came to my rescue. During the 30 minutes it took him to get there, I ran 2 more miles and walked half a mile to kill time! He brought the broken clicker with the working key and we were able to get into my car! Yippie! But seriously, how stressful and not cool is that?

The rest of the day gets better. Once I got cleaned up and fed, the hubs and I headed to the outlet malls for a bit of tax free shopping! Score! Here’s my loot:

From Banana Republic:
Sweater: Originally – $64 Got it – $38
Dress {maxi}: Originally – $89 Got it – $27

From J. Crew:
Shorts: Originally – $34 Got it – $20
Shirt: Originally – $49 Got it – $30

From Nike:
Bag: Originally – $60 Got – $40 {Seriously needed a new gym bag!}
Shoes: Originally – $85 Got it – $60

Best part is that it was all tax free! Too bad in PA all clothes are tax free! Looks like I’ll need another tax free shopping trip when I head up there in November!

Saturday night we went to Nikki and Cliff’s for our Fantasy Football draft party! JP doesn’t have a team in this league, but I do and I’m the defending, dominating champion. Just saying, I’m awesome. Oh and this year, my team is awesome too. By the way, check out what we saw at the grocery store when we went to pick up a bottle of wine on the way over:

It’s the Houston Texans logo for those of you non-sports or non-Houston fans! It’s pretty impressive. Someone had a lot of time on their hands. I hope they got a little bonus for doing that.

Sunday was a lazy day. My family made it back from Colorado Saturday night, so we hung out with them on Sunday morning and early afternoon. Dad made ribs for a late lunch which were delish! After that the hubs and I finally headed back home but not after a stop at Target for this movie:


And few few other things {duh}:



I swear I can’t leave that store without buying way more than I intended to purchase. No complaints here though! I’m actually wearing the top and blazer as we speak with navy pants and nude heels! Ahhh, I love new clothes 🙂

The rest of the night was spent doing boring things like putting away suitcases, doing multiple loads of laundry, eating grilled cheese and grapes for dinner and watching The Hunger Games. Yup, that’s about it!

What did y’all do this weekend? Anything exciting? Any shopping extravaganzas?

I’m linking up here!

Until next time…
With love and God bless,
