Le Weekend: a recap

Wow, is it already Monday Wednesday? (i originally planned on posting this on Monday) Tell me it isn't so! Well I guess I know it is, because I got up early and headed off to work this morning (again), boo. Don't you wish the real world had summer vacation too? Paid obvi! I certainly do!

My weekend was busy but uneventful. Friday, I went to Abbadabba's, a shoe store in Atlanta, to buy my Vibram Five Fingers. I took the plunge and bought the orange and pink pair, however it took me about 20 minutes to get them on my feet the first time. They have since loosened up. After that, I had to go to the store to buy some beer because we were having my mom's cousin over for dinner. I went to Fresh Market (similar to Whole Foods) and I found Shiner Bock, which I thought they only sold in Texas! I was pleasantly surprised! I also popped into the wallpaper store to pick up the paper for our front hall and it is faboosh! think toile+ pinkish-red+ green... YES!

New shoes... looking goofy fo sho!

Friday night I made a chicken dish for dinner, which was not as good as the first time I made it, and we had Piece of Cake cupcakes.... heaven! We had a great time celebrating my second cousin's birthday, but I was exhausted from a long week, so I read a little bit of the July Self magazine and turned in early.

Saturday morning, I got up and ran in my new 5 fingers. I only ran a half a mile because switching to a minimalist shoe can cause injury if you don't build up mileage slowly. Boy was that half mile hard though, and my calves we SO SORE yesterday! They are still sore, but not nearly as bad. My sister and I then went to the Peachtree Road Farmers Market at the Cathedral of St. Philips , where we got some grass fed beef, bread, peppers, arugula and homemade dog treats. This place was great, and I wish we had known that dogs are allowed, because Cupie would have been in heaven. It was packed too! I'm glad we got there by 10, because things were selling out fast!

For the rest of the day, we did lots of house stuff, including going to Lowe's, and hitting up several antique shops, a fiasco at the Homes Goods (more on that later) and going out to the middle of nowhere to look at counter tops for the baths. FUN, FUN, FUN... sort of. I am not going to lie, this is stressful. My mom keeps telling me it shouldn't be, but it is. I want everything right and I want it done soon! Ok, enough being bratty, but seriously, I want to get the ball moving here because we only have 1 month left to get it done! I think I will still be in my parents house for the first few weeks of school, but that's ok.

Reason for Home Goods fiasco= towels. I exchanged the aqua ones I bought several weeks ago for these light pink ones because they go better with the green counter top we chose for my bathroom. They are now waiting on my bed to go to the monogrammer. *Notice* diva Cupie sleeping in the background.

Saturday night, my sister and I babysat her boyfriend's nephews. They are so sweet! The older boy is a HOOT and the baby is very sweet. Needless to say, I was exhausted when we got home. Major props to all the mamas out there, I don't know how you do it!

Sunday was low key. We went to church then another trip to Lowes was in order.We had hamburgers for dinner and I went to bed early!

I can't believe how fast time is flying these days! I only have 4 more weeks at my job! Then 2 weeks at the beach, and then, bam, school starts! I need to get my life organized ASAP to make the move and start of school go smoothly.

Did y'all have a good weekend? I hope so!


P.S.- Thanks for all the great comments on my Sun Savvy post! Y'all are great!

What do you think of those shoes? I have tried them on (it took me forever to get them on, too) and they felt very weird on my toenails. I don't have long toenails, either... it was just odd. Curious how you like them!!

I have been wanting to get a pair of those shoes. My camp counselor had them and I thought they were the coolest thing ever!!
