Well, today has certainly been a busy Saturday, filled with a little of this and a little of that!
First up, I put on my Bargain Shopper shoes (<—actually, I don’t really have bargain shopping shoes, but I did wear my newest pair of boots) and headed out to save some money.
Earlier this week, I got myself a new jacket from Express, courtesy of my wonderful mom (I’ll be sure to show you guys the jacket soon, probably tomorrow). Well when I got the jacket, I used a coupon; but the next day, I noticed on their website that all of the outerwear was on sale. You know what that means, right?
Pride adjustment time.
Luckily, I had no problems getting my adjusted price, got myself a nice little refund, AND basically ended up getting a free lip gloss in the grand scheme of things. By the time all was said and done, I got my new jacket down from the original $98.00 price to about $50.00. I’ll take that any day!
So once I was finished saving some moola, I went ahead and decided to treat myself to some afternoon goodies. First up? A much-needed pedicure.
I few weeks ago, we got some coupons in the mail, with one of them being to a new-to-me nail salon. I had heard really good things about the “Happy Feet” foot spa special and originally planned on doing that.
However, once I got there, I saw three women who were currently getting it done. That particular service was located right in the front of the (very busy) salon, and the women were totally reclined on these huge chairs, had their faces covered with eye masks, and were semi-covered in towels.
Basically, they looked like they were in their glory; however, I didn’t feel all that comfortable being in such a vulnerable-looking position right in the front of the salon. Call me crazy, but I felt like it should have been in a bit more private setting?
Either way, I opted for the pedicure, used the $5.00 off coupon, and me and my pretty purple toes were on our way…to get some fro yo.
As anticipated, the first 3 ounces of my amazing afternoon treat were free, and I enjoyed every bite of it while sitting in my car by myself rocking out to the radio. Hey, I don’t give a hoot. My favorite song even came on, so it was fantastic.
Today’s fro yo combo: cookies & cream + raspberry & white chocolate mousse swirl, topped with caramel, chocolate chips, cheesecake bits, granola, Oreos, and rainbow sprinkles.
A little random, but totally delicious. I can totally foresee this place being a problem for my wallet. Oy vey.
Once I was done “pampering” myself for the afternoon, I headed home and took care of a little studying. My journey to becoming a personal trainer has not been an easy one. I’m not going to lie and say that it’s all been a piece of cake, because there is definitely a lot to learn. But ya know what? I am loving it.
Granted, I’ll love it a whole lot more once the studying part is finished and the “doing” part is happening, but I’m getting there…only three chapters left!
After the studying was done for today, I heated up the rest of my leftover Spinach Lentil soup for a light dinner and enjoyed it while baking up some cookies.
Tonight, Jay and I are headed over to Sarah & Jeff’s for a birthday party, so I figured I’d bring a sweet treat to share.
I used one of my all-time favorite cookie recipes and swapped out the Heath bar bits for a combination of butterscotch and chocolate chips.
Jay and I already taste-tested and they definitely got a quick four thumbs up.
Gotta run…it’s party time! Hope everyone is having a great Saturday!
