Remember how I spent a whole wad of cash while shopping the other day?
Well. I went shopping again today. Why? It’s beyond me. But I did and I spent a whole OTHER wad of cash.
I justify it though because all of it was on sale. I seriously very rarely buy things not on sale, unless I really love them or they’re a great price to begin with.
Among the things I bought included a jacket for $30 (regular $130!), and some sweat pants and several sweaters, all pretty dirt cheap though. Plus the second book in the Twilight series since I finally managed to finish the first one and had a book store gift certificate so for me it was free. :) Can’t wait to get started on New Moon! Now if only I didn’t have so much required textbook reading to do first…
And still on the shopping note, Old Navy is having a giant sale this weekend only where everything orange ticketed is an additional 50% off. SO. Because my last shopping binge was mostly done at Old Navy and I discovered that most of the stuff I bought on that last trip was all already orange ticketed, I brought my receipt back today and they gave me the 50% off on all of those items that were orange ticketed. This resulted in me getting $40 back! Just for bringing in the receipt, I didn’t even need to bring all of the clothes in with me. I was beyond thrilled about how cheap I ended up getting all of those items for.
If you can’t tell already, I’m clearly addicted to sales. I think I have a serious problem.
But because I think you’ve probably heard enough about my serious clothing addiction and because I have no clothing visuals at the moment to make this more exciting, I’ll just move on to what I ate yesterday, cool?
Food on Thursday
I already posted yesterday’s brekkie on the last post so I’ll just straight ahead to the quick lunch I threw together when I ran home between classes to finish up an assignment.
Red pepper, spinach, tomatoes and kidney beans pan cooked in a dressing of fat free sour cream, dijon mustard, buffalo sauce and balsamic vinegar. I know, I mix weird things together. It tasted good though.
No words needed.
I then had a lecture scheduled from 4-6 but it ended an hour early. ? OKAY. Works for me.
It doesn’t look like much but it’s addicting. And disgustingly greasy, I pressed it onto a napkin and there was a nice big blob of grease leftover. It was slightly frightening. I still managed to eat plenty of it though.
I also ate some sweet stuff but I always forget to take pictures because I just chow down on whatever I find first. I need to start fancying up my desserts.
Weetabix with unsweetened almond milk, vanilla yogurt, blueberries, frozen banana slices and cherry pie filling.
The filling was kind of lame though, it didn’t add a whole lot of flavour so I ended up tossing the rest of the leftovers.
I had a couple classes today and they were in separate buildings so I had to do a fair bit of walking in the bone-chilling cold we’ve been experiencing lately. Today has, in my opinion, been the COLDEST day yet and I thought I was going to pass out right there in the middle of the campus parking lot as I booked it as fast as I could to get to my next class. I seriously hate the cold. The only thing that made it bearable was the bright sunshine that added a teeny bit of warmth. But the winds somewhat counteracted that. Go away winter!
After class was my shopping excursion with my friend. We managed to shop for 3 hours. Usually I cannot stand shopping for great amounts of time so this was like a record. I think the overabundance of sales left, right and centre definitely helped though. ;)
Because of the shopping, my “lunch” was an apple and a Clif bar (Peanut Toffee Buzz – first time trying. Opinion = not bad but nothing notable) from the grocery store.
I snacked on bread, soup, carrots and tea when I got home. Then went back to the mall with my mom to get that $40 from my Old Navy receipt. Then came home and had an actual dinner of sweet potato and cottage cheese, plus a bowl of cabbage slaw with feta. I got pictures of the sweet potato but I’m not in the mood to go get my camera and upload the pic so I’ll just leave it to your imagination.
I’m headed out of town tomorrow night to visit (and party with of course) a friend of mine and I’ve never been there before so it’ll be nice to do something different this weekend. I’m looking forward to it! Anyone else doing something out of their ordinary weekend routine?
Have a great one!
