So Many Goodies Today!

by Courtney on February 13, 2011

What a GREAT Sunday!

Jay and I started off by heading to the mall, since I had a few things to return. Once the returns were taken care of, we both managed to do a little shopping damage…

I picked up this new scarf and a thin off-white belt from American Eagle.


Which, as a side note…I have not been in this store in a while, and Jay and I both felt EXTREMELY old! Disappointed smile

Then I hit up Express and successfully used my fast cash and a birthday gift card (thanks, Brian & Mal!) on a few new shirts.


The orange shirt was on sale, so that means you get two. Winking smile


Then, Jay and I happened to be walking by Gertrude Hawk


and the magnetic force was enough to immediately draw us IN…which resulted in us walking OUT definitely not empty handed.


A milk chocolate caramel apple with LOTS of sprinkles!


And a dark chocolate covered Rice Krispy treat, topped with more milk chocolate, white chocolate, and mini peanut butter cups. Yes, mini peanut butter cups.


Our stipulation for buying the goodies was that we can’t open them until tomorrow for Valentine’s Day. So far we’ve been successful…but it’s not easy.

Next up, we finally headed to the movies!!


We saw Just Go With It, and Jay and I both agreed that it was a great movie. We’d highly recommend!

I managed to sneak in some movie snacks, which we both nibbled on between laughs. Shhhh, don’t tell anyone. Winking smile


By the time the movie was over, we were both starving, so we headed down the road to Panera and used one of our Christmas gift cards. Nothin’ like a free meal, right??

Jay and I shared a Bacon Turkey Bravo (sans bacon for me) and a Frontega Chicken Panini.


They were both equally delish, and I think we probably both inhaled them in about 10 minutes flat.



Luckily, we both saved enough room for our last (and my favorite) pit stop of the day…


Fro-Yo from Plum Dandy!!!! Open-mouthed smileRolling on the floor laughing

It’s been quite a while since I last had some fro-yo in my life, so I went all out:

Vanilla + Reese’s Peanut Butter cup fro-yo, topped with caramel, cookie dough, peanut butter cups, some mini white chocolate chips, and a few brownie pieces,. There may have been more, but I can’t remember…


…hey, don’t judge me. I lack willpower when it comes to this stuff! Embarrassed smile

I can’t believe the weekend is over already…did it go by super fast for anyone else???

Well, fast or slow, I hope you all had a fantastic weekend! Open-mouthed smile

Question for the Evening:

What was the highlight of YOUR weekend??

I feel really old when I go into American Eagle also….highlight of the weekend: sushi with a good friend.


7 Stacie February 13, 2011 at 10:07 pm

I saw ‘Just Go With It’ too! I loved it! My highlight was probably the 10 mile bike ride I took with some old childhood friends of mine today.

aw, what a great afternoon/evening! I love the stuff you got, those shirts from Express are adorable :)

I LOVE GERTRUDE HAWK! I wish I was exaggerating when I say that it takes all of my willpower to not sneak down there during my break at work every day, lol. I also wish I was exaggerating when I say I definitely have driven 40 minutes to just go to Saratoga for frozen yogurt from Plum Dandy. :-O

Cute buys! I’m surprised that you liked Just go with it! It didn’t see too funny from the trailers, but I will probably wait until it comes out on video to rent it. Tomorrow my boyfriend has off so we will be spending Vday together! I can’t wait!
