To relax a little, I headed out to happy hour with a part of the crew to Pujols 5 for a few cocktails and appetizers. Then we got a wild hair that we needed ice cream and undies - so we went to Coldstone and Victoria's Secret. I had a coupon that had to used by last night. Chelsea and I wandered around the mall for a while and I convinced her to buy a dress at NY&CO that I bought last weekend - she looks way better in it than I do though. I'd love to be another foot taller and skinny. I picked up the matching blazer that I had been eyeing at NY &Co and also got the tiered knit skirt that was on sale this week at loft. I tried on the XL, and it was TOO big - yay! So, I got the smaller size. I'm thinking white tank tucked in with the skirt and a long necklace and strappy heels - sounds like my Cinco De Mayo Outfit!
Around 8:30, Jeff called asking me to come home because of the impending weather. As I drove down highway 40, I could hear the tornado sirens going. Eek! So, I came home and we snuggled on the couch and watched 2 episodes of the Marriage Ref - it's hilarious.
Today, I slept in till 9, and Jeff wanted to go look at a band saw that he found on Craiglist. So, we headed out to Wentzville and picked that up and then went to Bread Co for lunch. They have a deal now if you buy a meal and a drink, you can get any pastry for $.99. Jeff was in heaven and needed a cinnamon roll while I got an orange scone for later. Yum! Then we proceeded to have a lazy afternoon. I caught up on a few shows, cleaned the kitchen and living room, and I'm now listening to my ice cream maker churn yummy Strawberry Lemon Sorbet. I bought 4 lbs of strawberries last Sunday and I had about half left and they needed to be used up. So far, it tastes amazing. I just made up the recipie:
- Simple Syrup - 1 cup sugar/1 cup water brough to boil and then cooled.
- 2 lbs of Strawberries
- 2 small lemons juice & zest (usually $2/1 size)
On tap for tonight is a whole lot of nothing. I need to finish a PowerPoint presentation for Tuesday and studying a little this weekend. I'm on track with my studying, but I want to make sure I'm ahead of the game. I kind of hope it rains tonight, I love sleeping in the rain!
