First Autumn Weekend

Seriously, how is it Fall already? And it’s still warm out in Wisconsin? Weird, but I’ll take it! Linking up with Katie for another weekend recap. 🙂

My Friday started off a bit crazy. I sat in line at Dunkin Donuts for almost 20 minutes, only to find out they’re apparently no longer selling Rocky Road Iced Coffee, so I got a mocha which tasted disgusting. Oh well! At least my waterfall braid looked good? Ha.

Work was pretty normal and then I met my sister out for some shopping once she got done with work. We started off at TJ Maxx where I found another pair of fake leather leggings (they’re $9 so I thought I’d stock up), another pair of leggings for $6 and a funny coffee mug that I didn’t need but I mean, COME ON.

After TJ Maxx, we went to DSW to see if I could find any ankle booties. I really want some, but I’m super picky and of course, they had nothing. We popped in JC Penny and they weren’t very helpful either. So then we went to Target where I found way more crap than I needed. Well, some of it I did need (shampoo, conditioner, deodorant) but the leopard print heels, pumpkin decorations and door mat weren’t necessary. I really wanted to buy this, too, but I restrained myself …

Saturday started off a little rough after a Nyquil-induced slumber. It knocks me out!! I had a bachelorette party in Door County, so I set off to find it around noon – and I got lost. But they found me and then it was wonderful. 🙂

I left around 8 p.m. to drive back to Green Bay and throw myself into another Nyquil-induced sleep (+ chamomile tea).

Sunday consisted of a lot of work. Got some laundry done in the morning, but then spent the rest of the day working (technically I’m still working while I’m writing this). I’ve got a crazy week! Monday night is watching the Packer game with my sister, Tuesday I work until 11 p.m., Wednesday I have Helene’s Blog Webinar (YAY!), Thursday I might have a date or something (??) and Friday I take a half day to go up to Door County for wedding weekend! Phew, I’m already exhausted. More Ireland recaps to come this week, too, starting tomorrow! (Day 1 and Day 2 are here!)

What did you do this weekend?

    Nice new mug! I love coffee cups and want a display for them one day, but for now, my husband bitches ALL THE TIME about how I have too many coffee cups and he’s going to throw them all away (I would kill him- most are from my trips!). I might buy some ankle boots at DSW! I tried a pair on that were so comfortable yesterday but I’m concerned about buying ANYTHING right now in case the grow and never return to this size after the baby. My sister’s feet grew 1/2 size when she was pregnant and never went back! But I might just risk it and buy them.Can’t wait for more Ireland recaps!

      Oh man!! I totally forgot about the fact that your feet can grow during pregnancy, too! I didn’t find any that I liked at my DSW, but I think I’m being overly picky.

    I’m currently watching (okay, listening) to the Packers game & it’s pretty intense in my apartment right now, haha. $6 leggings!? I almost went to TJ Maxx yesterday but talked myself out of it– now I need to go! Boo for being sick (again), hopefully it doesn’t stick around. And a date?! Awesome!! 🙂

      They have some good stuff! I always get my leggings a size bigger than normal though – I feel like that helps with the see-through problem. 🙂
