a weekend in the life.

Heyy everyone!

Hope you had a relaxing, fun-filled weekend!

Mine was definitely fun-filled, not so sure about relaxing…

I’m a major procrastinator so it was only natural of me to put off apartment shopping until I had a week left before my move-in date. I’ve been running (literally) all over town with my three page long to do list frantically throwing things into my basket, re-thinking items, getting distracted by things I REALLY didn’t need, trying to find the best deals, etc, etcccc.

Sorry to the woman I ran into at Target as I was power-walking slash trying to refrain from sprinting down the isle because I decided (while the cashier was in the middle of scanning my items) that I really did need that pink metallic shimmery nail polish.

i got the color on my ring finger! and i have yet to remove the different colored polishes from my fingernails...classy

From Home Goods I bought: a dirty clothes hamper, metal over-the-shower-nozzle caddy (I don’t know how else to explain it!), clear shower curtain, over-the-door purse/coat hanger, and pink himalayan salt (which I just found out from my friend Sheeva that you can get at TJ’s for $2!!)

From TJ Maxx I bought: a black and white flowered shower curtain.

From Tar-jayyy I bought: PINK METALLIC NAIL POLISH. Oh and Dr. Bronner’s Peppermint Castile Liquid Soap (which claims to have 18 uses! My mom uses to clean floors, counter-tops, etc…I’ve also heard it can be used as body wash!), spray bottle, and glass jars (for storing snacks, sugar, flour, nuts, etc…they were cheaper to buy in bulk than individual so me trying to bargain shop, got them!)

some of the goods.

the pink purchases!

Later I found myself wandering into Borders, but I managed to score 3 cookbooks for $20! Yeaaaahhh.

so sad but so happy borders is closing?!

The Pretty Delicious cookbook has pretty pictures and delicious-looking recipes that I can’t wait to try out! Peas and Thank You is a cookbook by fellow food blogger Mama Pea and I just had to have it! Eat Fat Lose Fat is a book & cookbook all about the benefits of coconut oil! (I’ll be doing a post about that soon.)

packin it all up!

I still have a whole lot more to do…

time to get crafty

I also made a trip to Joann’s to pick up some fabric for a bulletin board and for this white lamp that I want to liven up! Glitter and beads are the way to do it ;).

Now I’m off to do some returns at the mall! Ughh.

But before I go, I’ll leave you guys with some pictures of this weekends eats!
