Impromptu

Today was a day that I thought was going to be sucked away by furniture shopping, but it actually turned out to be a fun one!

We walked away with beautiful living room and dining room sets 🙂 Chelsey’s advice to buy quality pieces, rather than one’s that “will do” was right on target with what we wanted to do. We haven’t found a bedroom set yet, but we will in time. Good things come to those who wait, right? 😉

We celebrated with some cool refreshing Starbucks coffee.

Can you believe that this was my first iced coffee of the season?! Me either. What have I been thinking? This iced sugar-free vanilla coffee was on point. Cory raved about the caramel macchiatto as well 🙂

We came back to Cory’s apartment to for some lunch. I had a turkey, cheese, avocado and lettuce sandwich with some blueberries on the side.

After a quick lunch, I headed to the pool to do summa this

I hung out at the pool for about an hour, and Cory and I decided we didn’t want to sit at home for the rest of the night – so we went on an impromptu date and went to the movies!

Oh my gosh! If you liked the first movie (come on, who didn’t?) you have to go see this one! It was pretty darn funny 🙂

I also thought it was funny that everyone in the theatre brought their own snacks. The girl next to me had a whole Chipotle burrito. And I thought we were being smart…

Okay friends, I’m off to watch five more an episode or two of The Tudors 😉 I’ll catch ya tomorrow!

Let’s chat – What was the last movie you saw in theaters? Do you bring your own snacks?

Whirlwind of a Weekend!

Hi, friends! Long time no see 🙂 I didn’t post yesterday because my day was jam-packed busy. So, let’s go through the highlights, shall we?

Best Eats

Cory and I went to Jason’s Deli for dinner on Friday and it was stellar. I think I may have found my new favorite sandwich

This, my friends, is the Grilled Portobello Wrapini- grilled portobello mushroom, organic spinach, asiago, guacamole, pico de gallo. Pressed within an olive oil-basted organic wheat wrap.

Seriously. If you have a Jason’s Deli in your area, run – don’t walk – to go order one of these bad boys. It’s sandwich heaven.

We also stopped by Sweet Frog for a little treat.

This was my second visit in two days – concern? I like self-serve fro-yo because I can get just enough to hit the spot. Usually when I order pre-made desserts, they’re of behemoth stature and they can be a total waistline danger.

Home Away From Home

The bulk of our weekend has been spent in furniture stores. I had dreams of laying by the pool and soaking up the skin cancer sun, but alas – Real Life stepped in the way.

Here’s the thing. Brand new furniture is expensive. At 23 and 25 years old, Cory and I do pretty well for ourselves, but we’re in no means rollin’ in the dough.

After a certain point, I just want to find something and buy it. I’m also easily persuaded by salespeople.  I’m so grateful that Cory has enough sense to actually shop around before dropping several thousand dollars 😉

New Obsession 

Oh my GOD! I have spent an embarrassing amount of time in the past two days watching season 1. I read the Other Bolyen Girl a few years ago and have been obsessed with the Tudors ever sense. I don’t know why I never watched this show. Maybe because it should be X-rated?

Today

So before we head out for the day, I got up and spent about 40 minutes in the gym lifting weights and completing a quick mile and half run.

I refueled with a huge green monster and the comics 🙂

Am I the only one who still enjoys reading the comics? 

Into the green monster went:

  • A handful of ice cubes
  • 1 banana
  • A huge handful of spinach
  • Handful of blueberries
  • 1 tbsp PB

Okay folks! That’s where we are up to this point! I keep forgetting that the weekend isn’t actually over today.  It’s like Saturday Round 2 😀

I hope you are all enjoying your holiday weekend!!

Let’s chat – 

Have you seen The Tudors? 

Ever been to Jason’s Deli? 

If you’ve ever shopped for furniture – is it something you love or loath?
