Weekend recap

Friday, I ran a few errands and made a quick trip to the mall. I got a new lipstick and lipgloss at Chanel and some pretty scents from Bath & Body Works. My mom came over later on and we watched Dateline and So You Think You Can Dance that I had saved on the DVR. We decided to go to dinner at Nifty Fifty’s and then we both headed our separate ways. I came home, caught up on reading blogs and waited for a call from Geof to pick him up from the airport (he was in NE all week for work). I brought the dogs in the car to surprise him and you should have seen their reaction when they saw him outside of baggage claim waiting for us. I’ve never seen two dogs more happy to see someone.



Saturday, Geof and I headed up to the Philadelphia Premium Outlets and I got some things from the Cosmetics Company Store. They have a great selection of discontinued MAC products and other brands such as Clinique, Bobbi Brown, Estee Lauder, etc. I got some things from MAC and the Bronze Goddess perfume from Estee Lauder. It smells amazing and is perfect for summer.



After the outlets, Geof and I went to Max & Erma’s for lunch. I had never been there before and it was delicious. I had some tortilla soup and a yummy cheeseburger. We also got the most delicious chocolate chip cookies warm from the oven. After lunch, we headed to the movies to see Inception. This movie was fantastic and so original. It definitely lived up to the hype and made you think. I highly recommend this one.




Sunday, Geof and I headed to Pinocchio’s for lunch and then visited the beer garden and picked out our own six pack to take home. I tried a bottle of Abita Purple Haze and it is a new favorite. I will definitely be getting it again. After Pinocchio’s, we went to the pet store to pet puppies and then headed to Blockbuster to get a movie. We got a movie called Dread and it was horrible. It is a horror flick that is part of the annual After Dark Horrorfest. Jackson Rathbone (Jasper from Twilight) was in it but that couldn’t salvage the ridiculousness of this flick.



Sunday night was spent watching all our favorite HBO shows. It was a relaxing weekend and great to have Geof back home. I hope that you all had a good one too!

Yay! I love Chanel lipstick and lip glosses. They're probably my favorite and I just feel so decadent when I get some of their make-up because it's packaged so prettily.

It's so sweet that you took your dogs to surprise Geof. I can only imagine how excited they were. That's one of the things I love most about dogs - that they always let you know how happy they are to see you.

This Cosmetics Company Store sounds like someplace that I need to go! I always fall in love with products that wind up getting discontinued and then I'm frantically searching the web for any that are left. I wish we had a place like that close to where I live.

I keep hearing good things about Inception, so I'm going to have to see that. I want to see Salt, with Angelina Jolie as well.

I am not a beer drinker, but if the Purple Haze is anything like a Purple Haze made with sake and chambord, then I might like that.

Your weekend sounds great.

I hope you are having a great Monday so far!

OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I love that perfume. And I NEVER EVER wear perfume. I saw it out the outlet and didn't get it and now I cannot find it anywhere. I am kicking myself for not getting it!

Meghan said...

Sounds like you had a shoptastic weekend! Lots of great finds - and great food! I love going out to eat with my hubby.

Thanks for the Inception recommendation as well - I definitely need to see it soon!

I really want to see Inception...we considered Friday night but decided we needed something more light hearted and saw Grown Ups instead. It was pretty funny!

LOVE Max & Erma's tortilla soup....yum!

Bella said...

Sounds like a great weekend. And your beauty buys sound fabulous. :)

Katie said...

Josh and I plan on seeing inception soon! Glad you like it!

Kathie @ Just a Happy Housewife said...

I liked Inception too. Josh didn't think it lived up to the hype :-)

Amy said...

OH it is great to have your husband home. Mine was gone all weekend. We just hung out and had a girls weekend.

Brittany said...

Brittany Ann said...

We loved Inception! The whole theater gasped aloud at the end!

TS Hendrik said...

Inception really is a fantastic movie. You should have snapped some shots of the excited dogs. Sounds really funny.

Sounds like a fun weekend Jules! I need to try out some Chanel lipgloss at some point, I've never used it before!

Don't you love when your dogs get that excited to see someone - it's the best feeling in the world! :)

And I need to go seen Inception still - I keep hearing everyone talk about it! I also would love to try the Purple Haze beer. Heck, I'd love to try any beer at this point! LOL!

I hope you have a wonderful week!!

Tasha said...

What a lovely weekend of shopping! That's so cute that you took the dogs to meet Geof after he had been out of town.

LOVE the lipstick/gloss, such pretty colors. And what a shocker, I'm adoring the vanilla berry spray from B&BWorks! So much in common =) I really liked the Vanilla Coconut but they were all out when I went.

I want to see Inception because of all of the hype. I really don't know what it's about though. Dreams? I loved Leo's last Flick, Shutter Island and it made you think. Is this movie similiar to that one is that sense?

Have a great week, friend!

Melissa said...

Sounds like a great weekend!

We saw Inception recently too and loved it! Great movie!

Jill said...

What a fun weekend!

Love the bath products and cosmetics you stocked up on. Buying that stuff always hits the spot!

Purple Haze Beer? Do you remember a drink called Purple Passion? I think that's what it was called... kinda like a wine cooler but really strong.

Glad y'all had a fun weekend!

Sounds like a fabulous weekend!!!

Michelle @ Flying Giggles said...

I want to see Inception! Maybe one day I can break away from the kiddos and check it out!

I love Chanel's lipstick, it is the very best! Too bad I rarely buy it anymore...the kid thing...lol. However, I do love Mac and I continue to buy that. This momma has to look good!

It sounds like you had a fab weekend! Have a great week.

Chic 'n Cheap Living said...

Aww your dogs are so sweet!

Ahhh another positive "Inception" review - I gotta see that movie!

Brittany said...

Sounds like a great, fun weekend to me!!

Going to the pet store always makes me so sad though because I want to take all of the puppies home!

Kristin said...

Sounds fabulously relaxing! I'm dying to see Inception! SO need a date night. HA!

the pink prep said...

i am obsessed with the lemon and coconut vanillas from BBW!! how yummy! i feel like i must smell like a fruit salad stepping out of the shower! ;-)
and mr prep and i are having a mid-week date tomorrow to see inception -- i cannot wait. we're seeing it in a new theater with luxe seating (you actually sit in recliners and have your own waitress and can order drinks and dinner! -- how fun!) Glad you guys had a good time!!

Dana said...

Love the bath and body work summer lemon vanilla. It makes you smell yummy. I can wait for it to go on sale so that I can stock up on it.

Lauren said...

Hey there sweet friend! Oh Jules how are you, I miss you! We seriously need to get together again soon! Abita Purple Haze, that's my girl, drinking Louisiana beer! Matt would be so proud! :) We saw Inception last weekend too and thought it was awesome. Glad your Geof is back home, I know you must be too! Sending you Trishy hugs, let's pick a date soon, promise? :) Hope both jobs are going well. xoxo love you!

After I saw Inception I read a bunch of theories and now I want to see it again to see what I notice.
