Weekend Recap (6/13- 6/15)

How was everyone’s weekend?  Mine was pretty good.  After a week full of rain and thunderstorms, this weekend turned out to be beautiful. 

On Friday night after work, we met my sister in Delaware to surprise my dad for an early Father’s Day dinner. He usually isn’t surprised when we come over, but this time he had no idea!  He actually thought other people were stopping by, but was very appreciative that it was us. 

We bought him a new camera, which he desperately needed.  He’s always trying to take photos and videos on his crappy cell phone, so now he can take much higher quality photos and print them if he wants.

On Saturday morning, Bryan and I had to run a few errands, but afterwards I went shopping!  The J.Crew outlet is pretty close to where I live, so I stopped over there to see if I could find anything good.  The outlet is a hit or miss for me.  Sometimes I find great things and other times nothing fits properly and the quality is crap.  I ended up leaving with a new top and a pair of small hoop earrings, and ordered a swim cover-up when I got home, because the store didn’t have my size in stock. 

After J.Crew, I stopped at Target for home essentials (i.e. paper towels, food, etc.).  I also picked up a new bathing suit top that I absolutely LOVE!  Their tops are really nice.  I tried on the matching bottom but it wasn’t as great as the top so I left without it.

Meanwhile at Target, a teenager stopped me as I was entering the dressing room and told me she liked my t-shirt.  I absolutely love my t-shirt and was thrilled that someone (even a teenager) felt the same way!

Here are some of the things I purchased recently:

On Sunday, I made banana pancakes for breakfast then headed over to Bryan’s parents’ house for Father’s Day.  We relaxed in the pool, ate a delicious dinner, and chatted until 8pm.  We were absolutely exhausted by the time we got home. 

This week is going to be pretty busy, because I have to write a very important article (more on that soon), go to the gym, write some freelance articles, write for the blog, do laundry and much more.
