I normally have Monday’s off of both works. Though I would much prefer a weekend day, I cannot ever complain about having a day off at all. Normally on Monday’s I try and make it my long run or double workout day since I can’t generally fit it in other places and then of course relaxing and not worrying about work. When mom asked if I wanted to go to the outlet malls in Williamsburg and was off work as well I wanted a day to forget workouts, forget working and be a real girl.
The previous two weeks I haven’t been having runs that I would really consider enjoyable. While I finish the runs injury free and not in pain, they haven’t really felt great. At 5:15 in the morning I was just grumpy and running was not happening then. When I didn’t sleep well and had no interest in running…I didn’t. I also didn’t sleep in either because honestly I was just wide awake. So with that I crawled out of bed and just relaxed at home while mom woke up.
We generally like to turn our shopping adventures to the outlet into an all day event. On the hour journey north, we couldn’t decide on a restaurant so using trusty foursquare we found a Greek restaurant “The Grecian Plate”. It was good but it wasn’t enough food for me. It also wasn’t terribly expensive so I wasn’t too upset.
Before I divulge too much into my shopping adventure, it’s no secret I’m on a budget but I decided to treat myself to a day of shopping and not worry about it. I work to enjoy and spend money that I earn occasionally and not feel guilty about it. To give you a remote idea, it was more then I’ve spent in the last week then I have in the last month. Oh well.
Some key purchases:
Immediately when I saw this romper at BCBG, I fell in love. I knew it was going to bust my wallet but I also knew it would be a perfect date night outfit in Texas.
I also bought some new MAC makeup at the cosmetic company store. I know some people don’t wear makeup…but I do and I like MAC. It lasts a long time and for me that is also a splurge I take.
The other splurge I take is my biannual new wallet purchase from Fossil. In January I treated myself to a fancy red wallet. This time I decided to go with a nice tan leather wallet.
