Sitting down to write this post, it feels like Friday was so long ago! It has been an exciting weekend.
Friday started off a little crazy at work. Just trying to finish up a project that kept needed tweaking. Then it slowly started to turn around. First, when I went to go grab some lunch, the sandwich station had my favorite pasta salad. That alone just made the day better. Then, it really did a 180 when my boss told me he would like me to go to a conference in Florida coming up! This will be my first time traveling with my job, and I am SO excited. Crazy nervous, but also super excited! The weather was amazing on Friday - I think it made it to the 70's - which had me craving a beer. The evening was spent at a local pub enjoying some drinks and good food.
Race came out this weekend, so we caught an early showtime on Saturday. The movie was really good. It covered Jesse Owens' road to the Olympics held in Berlin, as well as touched on the decision for the U.S. to participate in those Olympic games. I thought it was really well done. I ran a bunch of errands Saturday, which is always nice to have those done come Sunday.
I headed to the mall first thing on Sunday to pick up a few things for my trip. I also wanted to get a head start on an Easter present for Jack. I have to say, I have been really disappointed in Barnes and Noble lately. I love that store. I could spend hours looking through all the different books. However, I wasn't having much luck with the kids books, so I thought I would at the least treat myself to Teresa Guidice's new book. I was looking online to make sure the store had it, before I started looking and it said I could pick up in store...for $26.00. When I went back to the regular online price, it was $10 less! This happened right after Christmas, too, when I went to pick up The Pioneer Woman's cookbooks. The online price was so much cheaper than the in-store price. Needless to say, as much as I love Barnes and Noble, I am definitely going to think twice about shopping there, at least in-store. Just seems ridiculous to have to pay so much more when I can order online and save myself some money. That set the mood for the rest of my shopping trip, but I did manage to pick up a few things that I think will work for the trip. The rest of the day was spent doing laundry and relaxing. It wasn't quite as productive as I had hoped, but not too bad!
Hope everyone has a marvelous Monday!
