Weekend recap

On Friday after work I stopped by Macy’s because I had some gift certificates that I needed to use before they expired. I found a cute pair of Michael Kors patent leather flats in fuchsia that were on clearance and got some goodies at Clinique (since it is bonus time). They had this new Redness Solutions Mineral Powder and I thought it worked pretty well, so I got that and a refill of the Bamboo Pink Long Last Glosswear that I love so much. That entitled me to my free bonus gift.



Friday night when I got home, our friend Cory came over and he, hubby and I went to the carnival that was being held in the next town over. I love this time of year! The flowers are in bloom, the birds are chirping and it’s great to get outdoors and do things like that. The strangest thing happened at the carnival though. Hubby and I went on The Gravitron and this older man (he must have been 60) came in and did a handstand as the ride started going. He was upside down the whole time. I could not stop laughing. We went on some more rides, ate some carnival food and headed home. My friend Kelly was out and about so Cory and I met up with her and her friends at Barnaby’s. I swear that place is like our Cheers. Some of Cory’s friends came up too and we had a nice time.


Creepy man that was upside down!

On Saturday, I taught my last skating class of the season. We had a great year and I’m already looking forward to going back in October. Skating wipes me out, so I came home and took a nap. Our friend Jessica came over and her, hubby and I went to get something to eat and then went for a treat at Rita’s. We came back to the house and Cory came over and we had a Rock Band marathon in the basement. It was a lot of fun! I think I may be working my way up to playing guitar on medium.

On Sunday, I had a hair appointment and went to get highlights and a cut. My stylist is an old friend and she really gives me a great deal. I appreciate that so much and really need to get into the salon more often. When I got back from my hair appointment, hubby and I had dinner reservations at Chima in the city. This restaurant is fantastic. If you’ve never heard of it, it’s a Brazilian steakhouse where they serve you at least 10 different kinds of meat, poultry and seafood from Gaucho servers. They have a great salad bar, good drinks and an overall nice atmosphere. My favorite foods of the night were the filet mignon wrapped in bacon and the chicken. The mashed potato and polenta side dishes were delicious also.

After dinner we stopped by to see my mom and then went home and relaxed. Our friend Jessica came back over and we had some girl time and sat on the couch and watched some television. It was a beautiful weekend in the weather department and had an overall great time.
