Jet setting on the last several weekends has been fun and all, but I’ve been looking forward to this one for awhile.
Because I got to stay home. And do stuff that needed to be done, and that I wanted to do.
When I was in Boston, I bought Tim these Star Wars pancake molds for fun. Today, we used them.
They didn’t turn out super great, but it was fun nonetheless. Tim insisted on eating the Millennium Falcon one.
We ate them in bed, with iced coffee, whilst watching Friday Night Lights on Netflix. It was perhaps the happiest moment I’ve had in a few months (aside from finally reuniting with my best friend at the airport).
I spent the morning doing random things around the house that have needed to get done for weeks…but haven’t been, because I’ve been gone so much. I shredded every FAFSA worksheet or financial aid notice my mother saved since 2002 (and recently gifted me) and it took over an hour. I also gave Milhouse a bath and scrubbed the master bathroom clean. Not fun, but oddly soothing.
For a late lunch, I had a tasting plate of sorts, a la Meghann.
This was kind of a “finish the last of the produce” plate: slightly past-their-prime strawberries, a slightly mushy white nectarine, baby carrots and hummus, a toasted pretzel bun, and a tiny cheese. It was pretty light and just what I wanted after a somewhat heavy breakfast.
Then I engaged in cat photography for awhile, because Buckley was just, you know, chillin’ with his tongue out.
Then, I went on my biannual Sephora trip!
I try to stay out of Sephora as much as possible because I have no willpower around pretty things. I have recently decided that twice a year is the way to go—in between trips, I can replenish the necessities (foundation, mascara) that run out, but that’s it.
Anyway, I was out of a bunch of stuff, so I wound up getting:
- Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Dollface
- bareMinerals Mineral Veil
- Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion (this stuff is incredible)
- Buxom Insider Eyeliner in Amethyst
- Lorac Starry-Eyed Baked Eyeshadow Trio in Star Struck
And now I will not buy any more until 2012. Womp womp.
And then I got my hair cut. My usual hairstylist was out sick, so I had someone new, and she cut it a tiny bit shorter and styled it a wee bit spikier than I like. But, I could not wait another day for a haircut, let alone a week (my beloved Mandy is only in on Fridays and Saturdays—sigh), so…it is what it is. It’s hair, it’ll grow, and it will probably look better when I style it my way tomorrow. Whatever.
I went home and made a quickie dinner.
We usually get something out on Saturdays, but since we ate out a lot last weekend, we stayed in tonight. I did a quickie chicken parm served over whole wheat pasta and it was pretty yummy.
Then I hauled my butt to Target to do some shopping for the week. I was going to wait until tomorrow, but the thought of going to the grocery store on Sunday afternoon when it is one zillion percent humidity and 100+ degrees out sounded less than appealing. So I did it.
Now, I’m enjoying some Edy’s S’mores ice cream and we’re watching Scott Pilgrim Versus the World. (It’s just okay.)
The only thing that would have made today better would have been a more palatable temperature (100+ is not okay with me—a little run might have been nice) and having my usual hairstylist. But alas. I will not complain.
What would your perfect Saturday look like?
