Weekend Recap (2/1- 2/3)
|February 4th, 2013||Weekend Recap|
This was a pretty good weekend. I was able to sleep in both Saturday and Sunday without any alarms blaring. Does anyone else hate waking up to alarms? It just ruins my mornings.
After work on Friday, Bryan and I drove out to Trade Joes to pick up a few things. One being an 8 lb bag of oranges! Yep. 19 oranges for only $5! I was super excited, because as you know from my Friday Favorites… I’ve been loving oranges lately.
After Trader Joes, we came home and watched more Revenge. We’re finally on season 2 and the plot thickens.
Saturday was a pretty relaxing day. We slept in until about 8:30 or 9AM and watched TV for a while. In the afternoon we went to Ikea to check out some furniture pieces we need for our new apartment. We’ve made a list of the things we need, but the big items are: a bedroom dresser, a dining room table and chairs, and curtains.
That is the dresser than we’ re getting. It’s only around $139 from IKEA and it gets the job done. We don’t need anything super fancy. I just wanted it to be white to match our current end tables, and high enough to hold our TV on.
As far as dining room table and chairs, IKEA didn’t have anything that spectacular. I’ve found that some of the cheaper IKEA items look more expensive than others. In terms of their dining selection, it wasn’t great. We’ll probably have to look at other furniture stores to find those pieces.
Once we got back from IKEA we were starving! I decided to use up the avocado that I bought at Trader Joes from Friday. I made sure it was ripe when I bought it, because I knew I’d be eating it during the weekend. I chopped up half the avocado and mixed it with some organic cherry tomatoes. Delicious!
*TIP: if you want to save the other portion of an avocado, save the half with the pit inside, put it in a ziplock bag and place in the refrigerator. I did this on Saturday and had a perfectly fine other half of avocado for Sunday.
Bryan went out to West Chester Saturday night, so I had the night to lay in bed, watch some trashy TV, watch Youtube videos and do some research on new recipes. We didn’t end up going to bed until almost 2:30AM because Bryan was out late. I haven’t seen 2:30AM in a LONG LONG time.
Sunday was the Super Bowl, but that didn’t really dictate our plans because we aren’t sports people. In the earlier portion of the day Bryan and I went to the mall so I could pick up new makeup. You know by now that the makeup I was using was most likely the cause of my skin problems recently. I decided to visit the Clinique counter because much of their stuff is for sensitive skin. I also stopped by the Bobbi Brown counter at Nordstrom for the under eye corrector and concealer.
I found out from both the Clinique and Bobbi Brown sales reps that I have very dehydrated skin. Looks like I need to start drinking more water- no shocker there.
Here’s what I got:
- Clinique Even Better foundation
- Clinique Line Smoothing concealer
- Bobbi Brown corrector
- Bobbi Brown concealer and setting powder duo
- A sample of the Bobbi Brown moisturizer for under my eyes
