Another Saturday night and I ain't got nobody....
Well, that's not totally true, the problem is that my somebody is 500 miles away right now and we won't be seeing each other until next Sunday...
So, what's a girl to do when she is alone, has PMS and is all bummed out??? SHOPPING!!!
I am not usually that much of a shopper, but the mood struck me today so I thought I would head over to the Chandler Fashion Center for a little entertainment. First, I have NEVER been to a mall with VALET PARKING... How freaky is that? I was also not prepared to be driving all over the parking lot to try to find a parking spot... The mall was PACKED at 5:30 on a Saturday evening. (I have to say, I never saw that happen in Albuquerque)... So, I went in and did a "browing experience". First stop: Build-A-Bear Workshop! This is my new buddy. He has no name yet, but his is very snuggly. Then, I decided to grab a bite to eat at the Cheesecake Factory, then stopped at Bath and Body Works. As I was leaving, they asked me if I wanted to take a survey, so I did and they gave me a $10.00 Gift Card... Pretty Sweet!
So, here is my checklist for a "Lonely Girls Guide to Saturday Night Pampering":
Teddy Bear? Check
Fluffy soft pink robe from Bath & Body Works? Check
Chocolate Mousse Cheesecake from Cheesecake Factory? Check
Stress Relief Sea Salt Soak from B&BW? Check
Trashy Murder Mystery? Check
Candles lit? Check
Nail Polish and Shea Butter Foot Cream? Check
OK, people in Phoenix are really weird. When I was coming home from the mall, SOME IDIOT ALREADY HAD THEIR CHRISTMAS LIGHTS UP ON THE HOUSE AND YARD AND THEY WERE LIT! People, it's not even Halloween yet, IT'S TOO EARLY FOR CHRISTMAS LIGHTS!!! There ought to be a law... Maybe the Fab Five can come down and knock some sense into these people??? LOL!!!
I found this cute little handbag at a bookstore in the same shopping center as my local Trader Joes. I thought it was so darn cute and it will make a great purse/knitting bag! TJ's update: Mac and Cheese is TO DIE FOR!!! Note to self: don't buy too much or you will eat yourself silly.
This morning after work, I went to Home Depot to get the cabinet and drawer pulls for the cabinets. I drove out to the house to drop them off and saw that our doors are on our house now! We also have a patio in the front, and all of the cabinets are in the living room! Fortunately (before we closed on the house) they found out that the septic system was not up to snuff and are in the process of fixing it. I didn't know that so imagine my shock walking into the backyard and seeing all of these mounds of dirt and this huge hole! The air conditioner is on the roof, the wiring is in place for outdoor light fixtures, the power "box" is on the house (along with the meter) and the front water faucet is in and operational. I may drive out to the house tomorrow and take pictures. Silly me, I forgot to bring my camera with me this morning...
Time for me to dig into a cheap trashy murder mystery and get into a soft fluffy robe, snuggle up with my new Teddy Bear and grab that piece of cheesecake out of the fridge...
