Shop Till Ya Drop

Well hello again, and happy Monday to you.  I’ll try to keep this from rambling on too long, but seeing as it’s Monday and the day started an hour and a half earlier for me today than usual who knows if that’s possible.  Hopefully this half day on Friday is worth getting my bootay to work at 7 am this week.

The weekend was a good one, and involved spending way too much money, but hey you can’t take it with you.  Friday I fought with traffic and headed right to Tysons Galleria after work for some shopping and to meet the roommates for dinner and a movie.  I only hit one store at the mall, but man was I successful there.  Two pairs of shorts and five shirts from J.Crew for $140.

Already wore this one

Shirt #2, linen boatneck

Shirt #3, linen short sleeve

Oh, and despite the fact that I went into the store with the intent to avoid these shirts, I just can’t pass up a 2 for $20 deal.

Shirts 4&5 That green and plain black

These shorts, but in dark khaki brown

It was a very good shopping trip, and a tip for saving an extra 10% at check out?  Whip out that old school ID, seriously, sometimes they don’t even ask to actually see it.  Secrets of the shopping trade there folks.  After my shopping spree, I hightailed it across the street to meet the roommates for wine and dinner before our movie.

The Hangover 2 was our flick of choice and we all enjoyed it.  No, the story line isn’t original but the jokes are, and unless you have zero sense of humor and personality (ahem) you’ll enjoy it.  We all laughed, a lot, Zach G definitely makes the movie, and Bradley Cooper is so nice to look at.

Saturday was pretty typical, poolside followed by kickball games (we won both), followed by boozing at the Bottom Line.  I started to feel funny at BL, I’m starting to think it’s some combo of my new bc and sun exposure, so I actually didn’t drink at all there.  I tried to pull my shit together for the KickBall Saturday night, but that didn’t happen.  Instead I ended up at Barnes and Noble, which sadly was pretty exciting.  Then I passed out so hard that I didn’t hear the roommates calling me at 1:30 am because they couldn’t get in the house.  Sorry guys!  Luckily they’re pretty resourceful and figured out a way in.

Yesterday was actually my favorite day of the weekend.  Six hours, three bottles of wine, and two pitchers of Sangria, all while sitting out in the sunshine people watching.

And that’s really all that needs to be said about that.  Have a great one!

  1. I will break out the school ID until forever. If they look at me weird, I just tell them I’m in grad school. Yep.

  2. I can’t wait to see the Hangover 2. I know it won’t live up to the 1st one, but like you said, any time spent looking at Bradley Cooper is time well spent.

  3. I need to do some clothes shopping too. I have one warm weather appropriate top that fits me. One. That’s just not gonna cut it.

  4. I need some new shorts. Apparently they are in style, but I always feel like I’m in Girl Scout summer camp when I wear them. I like the green ones you bought.

  5. Wow, great deals on the duds you picked up!

  6. My friend was just telling me about the huge sales at JCrew. Totally missed that. Fail.

  7. How did you get so much at JCrew?! I need to have you be my personal shopper. Also, I want to play kickball. Did your friends just start a team or did you join a league?

  8. The fact that you are the only other person (besides me) to rack up a wine bill that is bigger than the food bill makes you my new hero!! Nice job on the shopping too! I love days like that! Bath and Body works was having their buy 3, get 3 sale so I hit that up.

  9. I think that pretty much would be my perfect day..

  10. Great stuff at J. Crew. I have those first pair of shorts but they’re a tad too small right now.

  11. I love the purchases.. and your weekend looks way too fun!!
