(boring) weekend recap

Hi sweet readers! Thank you so much for the kind words on my new job! I am feeling half blessed/half not so much because on one hand, I am already working a full time job and wish that I made enough money to be living comfortably, but I'm just not...and on the other hand, this is the first job I've applied for and had a very easy time going through the interview process. Granted, it's not like I got a job with the CIA, but you still have to make a good impression and answer questions so I feel good knowing that the interviewers liked what they saw.

This weekend I was able to stumble upon some really good deals at the mall! My new job requires all black so I knew that I'd be needing to stock up on shirts. I found two at Express that I liked enough to purchase. I will say that the sequin top runs big. I normally wear a Medium or even a Large, depending on style, but I fit comfortably into a Small. The other top is basic, but it's dressed up by chiffon sleeves and ruffles at the neckline. With my coupon, I paid only $50 for both shirts and a lip gloss/perfume travel stick (using a $15/$75 coupon).



Gap is always hit or miss for me because I think their style can be kinda boring and expensive. They were having a great sale (buy one top get one free) this weekend. We all know I love my cardigans, and lately I have been in love with the mint green color I see everywhere so I was able to pick one up. I also found a really cute scallop-trim top and I fell in love! Since it was B1G1, I only paid $30 for both.



Oh, and I also bought a jewelry display for my wall. I saw this over on Christina's blog and I'm so glad I did. I'm so excited to finally be able to see all of my accessories in one glance (well, not all, but my most favorite ones). The only complaint I have is that the ring holder doesn't actually hold rings...they all fell out! But I just put them on the tray instead. I also have a ton more earrings, but my arm was getting tired from getting them all in so I quit :) Anyway, I picked this display up at Bed Bath & Beyond for $23.99 (used a 20% off coupon).


I also made it to the gym Friday night and Sunday morning. It felt good to work out and sweat.

All in all, I guess it was a productive weekend!

Tonight I'm looking forward to hitting the gym after work, making spaghetti for dinner (or eating leftover pizza, I haven't decided), and watching Dancing with the Stars! I wasn't planning on watching this season but of course the premiere sucked me in! My top 3 favorites: Kirstie Alley, Ralph Macchio, and Hines Ward (never thought I'd say that because I really don't like the Steelers!). My least favorite: Wendy Williams and Chris Jericho (I honestly still don't know who he is). Oh, and I still despise Brooke. If she would just go away, the show could be 100 times better. I know, I'm mean.

Congratulations on the new job!

Big congrats on the job & a jewelry display makes all the difference, doesn't it? I used to have mine hanging, but with all this travel I've hung them in plastic bags so I can throw them in my suitcase faster; it's just not the same.

Stephanie said...

OMG!! We are so alike!!!! Love DWTS, HATE brooke Burke!!!!!!! Those were my top 3 favs too. Hubby is convinced that Wendy Williams is a man. LOL!

Love the clothes and that wall jewelry thing is awesome! Wondering if I have room for that in my bedroom.....how wide is it?? I have a dresser with a big mirror, so there isn't a ton of room left on the wall. Maybe I can make something myself...I have a corner jewelry armoire, but it doesn't have nearly enough space for all my necklaces...and especially not the long ones. Those get thrown in a drawer and that's not good!

Belated congratulations on the new job (I'm a little behind on my blog reading, eek!) and I love your taste in clothes, always :) And I'm obsessed with Bed Bath and Beyond (it's the new Target - I can't leave without spending like $100!)

Have a wonderful rest of your week!
