This is a little bit of a belated post, but I hope everyone had a lovely extended weekend! Shockingly, I went into the weekend with no plans to speak of and no travel plans, but I still ended up doing something fun every day.
Saturday I waffled between driving to Iowa to take my mom out for lunch or driving an hour north to the outlet mall in Albertville. The outlet mall won out; sorry, Mom! Eric and I had lunch at Boston's Gourmet Pizza in Maple Grove (wine and cranberry pecan salad for me) and then we hit Nordstrom Rack where I scored a cute pair of flip flops and some Pink Sugar perfume at half price! Half price I tell you! Last week, I paid full price at the regular Nordstrom, so from now on I think I need to check Nordstrom Rack although I am not sure that they always carry Pink Sugar.
Then we proceeded on to the outlet mall where Eric bought me a really cute black skirt embellished at the hem with a black & white polka dot flower. It is really cute! Then we did some boring guy shopping at the Levi Store and the Nike Store - yawn!! :-)
At Bath and Body Works I found a couple of very adorable car air fresheners shaped like turtles. I got a yellow one for Buttercup and a purple one for Daisy. The yellow is a peach bellini fragrance and the purple one is coconut. Also some strawberry anti-bacterial soap, small enough for my purse, and then a bottle of Coconut shower gel.
I also got a couple of peanut butter oatmeal cookies at Mrs. Fields. It was a successful outlet mall shopping day!
Sunday, Eric had golf so I met my friend Sara at Starbucks at the Galleria in Edina and we talked FOREVER. I had Tazo Tea Lemonade in Passion Fruit. 2 of them. It was good to catch up with Sara.
Then Monday I went to see "Bridesmaids" with my friend, Donna and her younger sister, Megan. We saw it at the West End in St. Louis Park where we had VIP seating. I had white wine and chips and onion dip. The movie was really pretty funny, made more so by the two glasses of wine, I think. I highly recommend seeing all movies at the West End in VIP!
I also planted some things to remember two of my best friends who are no longer with me. I like to do this every Memorial Day to remember my dad and my cat, Chloe. This year I planted an orange geranium in memory of my dad and for Chloe, catnip, of course!
So that's it for my weekend--it was lovely. Now back at the office on a Tuesday, but it seems like a Monday, but thank goodness it is not!
