Do You Groupon?

Good morning, beautiful people! I hope your Saturday has been lovely so far 🙂

This morning started out with a workout. A personal training shesh was going on in the small weight area of the gym, so I hopped on the elliptical for 17 minutes while I waited for them to leave – they were hogging the whole area! Rude. I then lifted weights/did a bajillion squats for 30 minutes.

This morning also marked my first homemade bowl of cereal in over a week. 1/2 cup quaker oatmeal squares + 1/2 cup vanilla almond special k + 1/2 a banana.

*Cue angles sining* It was glorious.

Cory and I are headed over to National Harbor in MD this afternoon to use up a sweet Groupon deal I bought a couple of weeks ago. God, I LOVE Groupon. We got tickets to the Metropolitan Food, Libations & Luxury Home Show for $9.  It’s held at the Gaylord National Hotel which is gorgeous.

There were several key points that persuaded me to purchase this Groupon –

  • Attendees can drink and dine their way through 250 exhibits
  • The day is sound tracked by live jazz and Latin music
  • Liquor tasting stations
  • Fine wine tastings
  • Gourmet pretzels and savory sauces to southern peanuts and flat bread-banana cake, culinary connoisseurs can celebrate complexly satisfying samples, which are also available for purchase.

Yeah, that said – I’m outta here! Enjoy your day!!

I want to know – Do you use Groupon And Living Social? They are awesome!

  5. I Groupon! Except, the closest city to me that was an option was Boston (3+ hours away) so a lot of the deals I can’t really take advantage of. I love when something comes up for an online store like B&N or something, though.
    Sounds like you got a great deal, I hope you enjoy it!!
