A free gift for only $200

Our weekend was pretty relaxing. Since I updated on Saturday, you may already know that it rained here the entire day. By 5 in the afternoon I was going nuts. I bribed the kid into going to the mall with me around 6:30.

I had gotten one of those cards in the mail from Sephora, you know the ones, they offer you a free gift to introduce a new product or some other promotional deal.  Anyway, the plan was to go to Sephora inside JCPenney and then the Kid and I were going to Chipotle afterwards. See: Bribe

It was a simple plan except for one problem, me. Apparently I have issues just going to the store and leaving with the item I came for.

So, an hour and a few hundred dollars later, we left Sephora. I don’t even know why I get sucked into those free sample things anyway because they NEVER have them in stock.

That’s right, I didn’t even get anything free. I did get several palettes of Urban Decay makeup which I will most likely rarely, if ever, use.  Needless to say the kid was not happy so I took him to dinner and then we went home.

On Sunday we got a break in the rain and so MacGyver decided to go do a quick service call and I spent a good 5 hours working in the yard. It’s amazing how fast the flippin grass grows when it rains every damn day!


 Okay now this set up is pretty inventive.

I’ll be mowing my lawn this way from now on.

Later in the day MacGyver and I met up on the sofa and turned on the TV. We started a new series on Netflix. I’m not sure why we never watched it before because my Mother-In-Law told us it was a great show but for reasons that you will know more about later in the week, MacGyver and I decided to watch Bloodline.

How did I not know this show was soooooo damn good??

BloodlineWe’re half way through the first season and I am hooked.

Late Sunday it started raining again and surprise, it’s raining again this morning. I still managed to run 6 miles on the treadmill this morning and the dogs and I had our walk.

And now, we need to run some errands. Hank hasn’t been in the car lately and he’s itching to get behind the wheel.


C’mon Lady, LET’S GO!

What did you do this weekend?

  1. I worked all weekend at the urgent care at my animal clinic. (I’m an LVT)
    -I am so excited someone else has watched/is watching Bloodlines! My husband and I stumbled across it a few months ago on Netflix and loved it too!! It’s such a good show 🙂

    • OMG, it is the best! I can’t believe I was not aware of it before. I looked it up today and realized that it’s been renewed and I got all sorts of happy. That should have come with a warning: Nerd Alert, LOL 🙂

    • I was just talking about this with a neighbor who is actually from Cali originally. I wish so much you guys would get a few rain days, and if I could, I would gladly send them to ya! 😉

  2. ughhh – this rain is bumming everyone out! Even my plants are tired of it and starting to wilt… It was a movie day of us too! {and we managed to get a massage in… so great!}.
    Hopefully we will see some sun this week!
