Scenes from the Weekend

Is it really the end of the weekend?? Oy, I need a vacation, or something. Maybe I need to work from home more but really, I don't get much done when that happens. lol.

Since I do this every Monday, it's time to talk about the weekend! Friday after work, I headed home and took Cleo for a walk and tried to figure out what to eat for dinner. I couldn't decide what I wanted so instead I went to get my nails done. My old nail salon moved to a new location that's further away, and while I really like them, the last few times I went, it took forever.  Now I'm auditioning new salons. 

One just opened by my house and they were having 20% off, so there I went. I don't know how else to say it, but all they guys looked like they came off the Jersey Shore. Asian Jersey Shore. So much hair gel and tattoos. Awesome.

The guy who did my nails was the grandpa of the shop and he had a mole that had 3 long ass hairs growing out of it. They were 5 INCHES LONG. I couldn't stop staring. How does he not know they were there?!?!? I am so paranoid about face hairs and I'm constantly touching my face to see if any errant hairs are creeping out. Please friends, if I have a random hair on my face, TELL ME. Don't be embarrassed, I will love you forever if you just tell me.

They did a decent job and I'll give them a second chance. The salon is super nice but their gel manicure is $2 more expensive than the other place I go. 

On my way out I grabbed this and took a gamble on a butter popcorn sucker. It was bacon, and gross.

I ended up getting Outback to go and ate the whole damn thing, I was starving.

I slept in like it was my job Saturday and I when I woke up, I had one thing on my mind...

I had coupons, and I got an email from the Gap Outlet with an extra 15% off everything. Yea, we all know what was happening. 

Before I did, I had to stop for a beverage.

Mmmmm. Iced Passion tea, unsweetened.

I had a pretty successful trip, I'll post my finds later this week along with some outlet shopping tips. I was there most of the day and on my way home stopped at the regular mall. I have a few things I'm looking for the fall but I think it's just too early right now, all he summer stuff is still out. I don't know about you, but I'm over summer fashion. I know I still have many more months to go, especially here in NC, but I'm ready for some cooler temps, scarves and shooties. 

After a long day of shopping, I stopped to get some groceries. The rest of the night it was just me and the dog.

Sunday morning I was up bright and early and Cleo and I headed out for a walk. After she pooped 2x and peed 3x we made our way home. Really, why doesn't my dog pee at 10pm before bed but on a walk, I need two bags? My dog is strange.

Later I headed to Omega Sports to get a swim kick board. If I have any hope of doing a triathlon, I HAVE to get into the pool and my form sucks. 

While I was there, I was talking to the shoe lady about how my hips have been hurting after my runs. Not one hip, but both, which is strange and a new ailment. I'm kinda paranoid that I'm just getting old and need a hip transplant but I was hoping it might be my shoes instead. 

I've been wearing Saucony Rides for the last few years with an insert. The inserts give the neutral shoe a little bit of stability that the shoe people think I might not need any more. She told me to take out my inserts and give that a go. I've been wearing my running shoes and inserts to Pump and it might be pushing my hips out during my squats which is no bueno,

I also tried on some different shoes, ran on the treadmill and found some new friends.

I've heard a lot of good things about Hokas, I'm going to give them a whirl and see how it goes!

I needed to get paper towels and vitamins, at Target, because where else would you get those things? At Target I saw these... Please no. No no no no..I'm having flashbacks to fraternity parties where we thought wearing overalls was the coolest thing ever. They weren't.

Friends don't let friends buy overalls. Especially when said friends wore overalls together back in the day and thought we looked awesome and now realized we didn't

After all the shopping I headed to the pool for a few hours with my kick board. Now some blogging and bed.

How was your weekend??

Linking up with BLoved Boston!AND


  1. LOL at the overalls! They look comfy. JK.
    sounds like a good weekend!

    1. Hahaha! I can't even with the overalls. I have bad flashbacks to clunky shoes and oversized overalls.

  2. Overhauls come back about every 10 years I've noticed. Oh fashion, how you never fail at entertaining me. I had Dick's coupons and some for Tanger outlets and I think I actually trashed them because I wasn't planning on spending dollas, and now I need new shoes. I'm crushed at my ignorance.

    Also, I haven't been in the pool or on my bike at all.. my tri is in like 20 something days. FML.

    1. But at least you swam before. I had lessons when I was like 8 and I hate the water. I'm super screwed.
      Did you find awesome shoes at Dicks?

  3. I am always so confused when overalls come back in style. Ohhh, I want to go outlet shopping! It's a bit of a drive in either direction for us and parking is awful, but it's usually worth it anyway!

  4. I haven't yet taken them out for a spin (I stink). They're extra, extra cushiony which is pretty cool!
