It finally rained this weekend.

Hey there. Can you believe it's already Tuesday? This is a random post and I should have participated in that Miscellany Monday blog carnival thing but I'm a procrastinator. What can I say? Let's pretend this was posted yesterday k? Sounds good.



Anyways, this past weekend was pretty good.

Friday, I only worked half a day :) I then did a little shopping (pair of jeans at ON for $9 - amazing!), went and got a mani/pedi with an old friend and headed to the gym. Not much went on Friday night because the weather gods finally blessed this dry state with some much needed rain. It continued to rain on Saturday until 7 at night. Talk about a flooded front yard.




Saturday, I literally did nothing but lay in my bed and guess what? I loved being lazy. Saturday night it was so cool and breezy out from the rain that M and I decided to go downtown to an outside restaurant for beer and food :) My kind of night! It felt like springtime - I loved it.




Sunday, we went to the pool. I guess since it rained SO much, these GINORMOUS japanese beetles were out! I am not kidding you when I say huge. They were bigger then the size of the quarter! They hover to the ground and sound like bumble bees on steriods. I think they might be blind or something because they fly around aimlessly and bump into you. I am petrified of bugs, not lie (I crashed my car because of a bee - don't ask) so just imagine me with a huge beach towel wrapped around me and my head dodging bugs running to the pool (they stayed clear of the water). M was so embarassed that he decided to walk much slower than me to the pool. I was smart though because they decided to bother and land on him :) Haha.



I went to Target today with a LIST so I could get in and out without breaking the bank and what do I notice as soon as I walk in?! Target put out all new clothes and shoes. Why must you do this to me when I'm on a time restraint and you KNOW I can't look?! Thanks Target. Cutest dresses too! Guess I'll be going back in a day or so.

No pics from this weekend :(



I think M and I are going to plan a fun trip to either Kings Dominion or Hershey Park soon. We both love roller coasters and haven't been to an amusement park in so long. Each are about 3 hours from me so we'd be staying the night. I just need a little getaway and I'll be fine :)



Hope you're all having a great week so far!



P.S - my button is messed up - sorry I know - but I am in the process of getting a blog designed for me with a new button so no worries, I'll have a new one in no time :)

Sounds like a wonderful weekend!! I hate bugs too...like anxiety attacks! Yuck!

I guess I'll need to steer clear of Target for a while since I'm trying to save money and all! Ha. Why must they tempt us?!

J and A said...

Sounds fun! Good work on the 9$ jeans and I don't blame you for running from those bugs! eek!

Brittany said...

sounds like a nice relaxing weekend. Gross bugs!

I went into Target on Sunday and spent less then 20 bucks! Its slightly incredible! It was like a small miracle! ahhhhhh!!!! (the sound of angels singing insert here!)

Although like you, I stumbled for a second on the accessory, and clothes isle!

Dont get me started on their home decor section! :)

i love amusement parks too!

I love lazy Saturdays! Sometimes they are necessary for my health!

So funny - because I was just telling my husband that I really want to go to Carowinds (themepark) soon. I havne't ridden a rollercoaster in years!

P said...

Those beetles sound HORRIBLE!!! I get the shivers just imagining them. (WHY am I imagining them? Yuck!)

That's weird, me and my sister were just talking at the weekend about how we hadn't been to a theme park in years and we really wanted to go to one!

Whitney said...

I try to avoid Target or I'm going to come out of there spending WAY more money than I planned. David has to help, and pull me away from the aisles I need.

Ugh! I couldn't imagine those beetles!

Marian said...

Seriously, my father said the same exact thing about those bugs about 3 weeks ago when I was home for my shower...how they just fly around like they are drunk or something. Hahaha!!

And I recommend King's. There roller coasters are the best!! I love Hershey as well, but think that King's dominates in the coaster category!

PS-This rain was such a relief!! Especially since the AC in my car decided to stop working. Shoot me in the face

Brittany said...

We finally got some rain to. Thank goodness! My water bill is going to be too high! Keep it comin'!

Tara said...

i can never ever just go into target to get things i need!

Kelly said...

Okay funny story that I HAVE to share-- a friend of mine and myself make fun of Greg alllll the time because he once said, "Wow. I can't believe it's already Tuesday"... but he said it literally at like 5am ;-) For some reason we think it was really random and funny :-D

And YES, Target DOES have adorable clothes right now!! Sooo does Old Navy-- we went there Friday night and there were soooo many cute fall outfits that I want. I bought a really pretty mint colored linen/cotton dress from Target yesterday with my cupcake money :-) I looove it!!

Hope you had a great Tuesday, Brittany :-D

Christa said...

Sounds like a fun weekend! I always love eating at outside restaurants. I always feel like I'm on vacation! :) I'm SO jealous that you found jeans for $9!

Have a great night!!!

Hershey Park is AMAZING!

I saw a super cute dress at Target today. It's impossible to get out of there without spending a ton!

Allison said...

What a fun getaway you're going to have! I can't wait to get away and do something fun with my new man. :)

Alissa said...

I reaaaaaaalllly want to go to target and look at some clothes. I went through there SUPER fast the other day (because Brandon was with me) and I I saw glimpses of some pretty stuff but I didn't get to stop and look at anything :( I really want a couple of new dresses and maybe some shoes :)
