Weekend Roundup, 3rd Edition

This post should read 3rd - and most likely, last - Edition because sadly, I'm re-entering the world of retail this coming Wednesday and you know what weekends in retail means. But just in case you don't because you escaped ever working the trenches that is retail, what it means is longer hours instead of time off. Yay; so glad I picked sales management as my profession.

I kid. I really do love it, I have just always loved my weekends whenever I worked in a position that I was able to have them. Which is exactly 3 different positions. One of which was actually in retail, but we're getting away from the point of this post.

It was storming when I got off work, so I picked up sushi and came home. I'm getting a little tired of the whole tornado/hail/flood thing going on every weekend. I'm so ready for tornado season to be over. I watched "Wife Swap" and something called "What Would You Do?" on ABC. It was really interesting. Afterwards I gave myself a pedicure and went to bed at like 10pm. You know, just like every other rockstar.

Saturday was a busy day. Evan had a game at 10am and so we left around 9. After his game I headed to my BFF's house because she just opened her pool! I lounged in/out of the pool for the rest of the day until we decided to venture out to eat and see a movie. We ate at Whole Hog Cafe and it was so good! They have won a bunch of awards and BBQ Fest and other barbecue competitions around the country and they certainly didn't disappoint! We then went to see "The Backup Plan" with Jennifer Lopez and I honestly can't remember the last time I laughed so hard. Funny story: we were a little early to the movie theatre and as we were waiting in the hall two ladies passed by us laughing their heads off. We jokingly asked them what movie they went to see and they replied that they were still watching "The Backup Plan" but they had been laughing so hard they had to use the bathroom. Too funny! I love Jennifer Lopez as an actor and I was really coveting her leather bracelet.
You can kind of see it here. It's really cool. 

Also, this dress I love. Love.

I slept in and went grocery shopping then came home and went through my closet. I did a  major overhaul in my clothing. I've already got a bunch more stuff that doesn't fit me anymore and some stuff that I haven't worn in forever so I'm going to be making a trip to the Goodwill tomorrow to drop it all off. I determined a few key pieces I need to put in my closet to tide me over until I've lost all my weight and a couple of pairs of shoes that I need to replace and I'll be good to go! 
Last night was also the Survivor finale and my mom and I always have a Survivor party. And when I say "Survivor party", I mean the two of us and absolutely no one else. We get Cracker Barrell takeout - I know, it has a real "desert island" feel doesn't it - and some sort of dessert and veg out the entire time. I've been trying hard on the various social networking sites not to give anything away so just one more time, without revealing anything, I will say I'm NOT happy with the winner! I've been dying to play Survivor since the first time I saw the show the very first season. I know that's possibly causing some of you to laugh, snort, spill your drinks and I get it but for me it's about the game. I think I could ignore all the camping and crap just to play such a game!
After Survivor I went to bed. 

I'm headed into my last two days as a Nanny and then I start at Anonymous National Retailer on Wednesday! I'm excited for this week!

Let's hear about your weekends!


  1. What a fun weekend!!!! And I had sushi twice this weekend! We need that sushi date, haha!!!! :)

  2. It sounds like you had a great weekend. At least you are in Retail Management, so perhaps as time progresses you can be a litle more flexible with the retail weekend hours. :) I think everyone should work retail at some point in their certainly does change your perspective.
