Weekend Thought Per Picture


I went into writing this post as a weekend sentence per picture but then I starting writing more than a sentence so I changed it to a thought per picture. A sentence per picture can be tough!

I took my son to The Cheesecake Factory for dinner but then his friends came over after dinner and they decided to order food so he had another dinner as if he didn’t eat the first dinner. Boys.

I switched over using Essie Gel Couture nail polish for my manicures and I’m all excited about it because now I can get my nails done every two weeks rather than every week because the polish stays so perfectly! If my nails didn’t grow as fast as they do, I bet I could hold out even longer between manicures. I now bring my polish with me to the nail salon which isn’t as annoying as I thought it would be. Some of the nail salons are charging extra if you use their Essie Gel Couture bottles but don’t charge extra if you bring your own bottles.

Why must all of the stores run their Friends & Family discounts at the same time? Saks + Bloomingdale’s = my wallet in trouble.


This is ignoring that Henri Bendel was also 25% off over the weekend!  I really want this Jetsetter Duffle Wheelie for traveling! 

What I ordered: When I find a good deal on Bailey 44, I just can’t pass it up. This bell-sleeve dress and this top are going to be staples in my wardrobe for work-related events. And this sweatshirt with a choker neck is so cute!

From Bloomingdale’s I finally ordered two new bras (I like Natori right now) plus two more Splendid tank tops. 

Quick stop into Trader Joe’s for only like two things which turned into a pretty full cart.

My son and I went to the movies and I still despise the reclining seats because I’m convinced I am too short for their structure.  My head hits at such a bad point on the head cushion that it hurts and makes me dizzy. Shouldn’t the companies who design these movie seats look into how they fit people of all heights before creating them?


I may be approaching 40, but this is still SO ME.


Fresh baked chocolate cookies will always have my heart.

Who else isn’t in the mood for Monday? I know my son isn’t, he has to go back to school after over a week off for Spring Break!

    I saw that meme and laughed at loud at it! It’s so true hahah. I just blame it on the fact that the car I drive is technically his so I don’t want to do something or not do it. Plus mechanics can try to swindle females (especially young ones).

    I haven’t tried Essie Gel Couture but my friend works for them so I may see if she can snag me a bottle. What’s your favorite shade?

    I do not like chokers but that one attached to the top is pretty damn cute. You make me want to buy new flirty clothes.

    I still need that Cheesecake salad in my life. We hardly ever go there so I never get the opportunity. I must make it happen.

    I always bring my nail polish to the salon so I can touch up any chips at home.

    You should link up to the WIR. Blows kiss.

    Oooh I’m gonna need to check out those sales now! Best thing I ate was absolutely the all-you-can-eat brunch at Farmers Fishers Bakers here in DC. It’s some of THE BEST food ever, french toast with caramelized bananas, creamy cheesy eggs, and dips of all kind. Ugh i want it all again LOL.

    I need to try that nail polish! I always manage to chip mine. I love the reclining seats at the theater because of all the leg room! I’m so tall that the regular theater seats feel cramped for my legs sometimes.
