... 24 is back! Cat Bauer approves. I kind of have a feeling this will be awful, but I'm watching it anyway.
What we do for fun in my house - Andrew's phone with a pic of Bauer on top of a magazine cover with Jack Bauer.
... I didn't start watching 24 last night for good reason - it's exam time at my work so I can stay late, make money, and blog (or respond to blog comments). By the time I did that and got home, there were too many other things I wanted to do. Making extra money makes me happy but missing Jack and Chloe does not!
... I went shopping this weekend and I love me a deal. Andrew came with me, which meant using every store's coupon twice. Oh, I can save $10 when I spend $25? Then we would like two separate transactions, please (for those who are into that kind of thing, I got this tank and this skirt. It's a maxi skirt in a petite length which I love! I also got a top at Kohl's for $3 because I had a $10 coupon with no minimum purchase. He got some stuff too but I know you don't care about that.)
... In part thanks to your awesome comments (but mostly because I've been looking for a new bag for months now), I got the purse I had my eye on this weekend. Roomy, professional, and cross-body - everything I was hoping for! So thanks to Bauer for the early Mother's Day present!
I like simple purses.
... I went to Trader Joe's this weekend, and that is always something to be happy about. I got my beloved almond croissants, beautiful $4 flowers, Greek yogurt guacamole, and jalapeño cilantro hummus. What are your TJ favorites?
... This drinking game was in last week's Entertainment Weekly. I will be playing it on my weekly Mindy Project text date. Let's see if my texts make sense by the end of the episode! Maybe this will finally convince Andrew to watch the show with me...
Thanks, EW, for all the blog fodder this week.
... I'm trying to bribe myself into working out. I hate every second of it but I also hate how my clothes fit - my white jeans have completely betrayed me since they were last worn in September - so something must be done. I am doing the stupid 30 Day Shred DVD because it worked for me three years ago, but I'm mostly muting Jillian and watching something else on the iPad instead - something that Andrew would never want to watch. Most recently, it was the first part of the Katy Perry documentary. I blame Anna for that one! But the thing that's making me happy is that for two nights it has worked, and it hurts a little to sit down. Whether I make it two nights or two months, I know working out is the right thing to do.... it's just hard for me to remember that when I'm snuggling the cat on the couch and it still isn't done.
So that's all - just a few things I'm loving. Tell me what you love in the comments!
