shopping and showers

The weekend felt a lot longer than it truly was. I am realizing this now that I am back at work. Friday night, my mother and I took a trip to Hastings, mainly so I could use the wifi. My parents NEVER use the Internet so after I moved away to college, and with my sister never being home they decided to stop the service since it was never used. Katey and Casey met us at Hastings, and I was so excited to show Katey all the comments she got! My counter went up by 200, it was CRAZY! I am not sure if Katey is going to pursue any of the comments, but nevertheless it was fun and maybe just maybe she will go on a date or two.

I finally got my paycheck on Friday and the money was instantly burning a hole in my pocket. This whole getting paid once a month thing is not really my cup of tea. So Saturday, I cashed my check and took my self on a long-awaited, mini shopping spree. I found some good deals, and some not so good ones. My favorite purchase was a romper from Gap that was originally $60 and I got it for about $17. [I love finding good sales.] My second favorite was a cookbook! I have been eyeing this cookbook for a while so I decided to buy it for myself. It’s called The Students Cookbook, great grub for the hungry and the broke. I am positive it will be handy when I move into my apartment and the recipes sound delicious! I am ready to start experimenting.

My new cookbook!

Jackie’s wedding shower was on Sunday afternoon, which made it a great afternoon. It is so crazy to think that in two weeks she will be married and on her way to start a life in California. Jackie and I have become great friends over the past few years and I am so happy for her. Never in a million years would I have thought that she would be my first friend to get married, but now it just makes sense. Her fiancĂ©, Justin, is a Marine so they will be living in San Diego for at least three more years. Justin has also become a good friend and I am thankful he has arrived back in the U.S. safely! He has been in Japan since January. I was so thrilled I was asked to spend the big day with them. It is going to be a crazy/fabulous wedding especially knowing this wedding party and Jackie’s family. Ohhh! I can’t wait!

Me and the beautiful bride!

Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!
