Busy Weekend, Part 1

Hello Friends! :)

I had a pretty good weekend (minus the cramps!) ... I think that extra hour for daylight savings time really helped! So let's get into it, shall we?

Friday, after work finally ended, my mom and I knew already that we planned to go to Target for a couple things. However, we heard that Nordstroms was having a sale and we wanted to check to see if the Litas were on sale! =) ... But then on the way to do THAT we decided to check out a couple thrift stores! They were on the way and we had both been wanting to go thrifting for awhile. We went to the two that we are familiar with. I forget the name of the first one but we always find good stuff in it but the people who work there are kind of rude. Then we went to The Salvation Army.. we don't usually find too much there, and it's really religious so we don't really care for that. However, I found some good stuff within the like 15 minutes at the first place and almost an hour at the second. (The clothes portion of this haul will be in part 2)

Anyways, then we headed to Nordstroms to check on the Litas. It took awhile but we eventually found a few! I found the taupe ones and omg they are gorgeous!!! The didn't have them in my size though. I tried on a 9.5 in them and loved them. I was so sad to not get them. My mom tried on a weird colored pair in her size and realized she would need to go a half size up because the front hurt her feet. Sorry I forgot in the crazy haze I was in to take a picture to show just how phenomenal they looked!

So then we left and went to Target. I had to get a baby shower gift for my friend's baby shower that was on Saturday. There was very little that I could find from the registry in the store, so I got what I found. I also picked up this $5 Elf "natural eye" eye shadow set, some Vitamin E oil, some bio-oil (that I plan on returning because it was just too much and I found something that is like the same thing and half the price from a different brand). And I got two CDs: the new Wale "Ambition", and I finally got the Big Sean "Finally Famous" because it was finally on sale! They were both $9.99... I believe that was it from Target. (It was more expensive than it looked)

And here is a gorgeous rainbow that we saw on the way home that we loved and wanted to take pics of.

Saturday, I felt like hell, but eventually got out of bed (after watching my 90210 reruns) and got dressed to go to my friend from high school's baby shower. We literally havent seen each other since high school and she is married now and lives in Las Vegas and is almost about to pop! That was a lot of fun just seeing her even though I didn't know any one else there and kinda got lost on the way there. lol (And it was only in South Natomas-and I live in North Natomas!) But this is the outfit I wore ... which Burch helped me choose. ( Thank you! =)) I went for the Native American look. The first picture -please excuse my chubby face, I was trying to show the cute earrings. Oh and look you can see my precious Michael Scofield's feet next to mine in the body shot-he loves to be around me! So anyways, I was exhausted when I got home and it was raining so I put my sweats on and watched some TV alone for the night. It felt pretty good being all cuddled up with my kitties while it was raining.

Sunday, I got that extra hour of sleep! lol Then got dressed and went with my brother to pick up Casey (his gf) so that we could head to South Sac to go to the auction. Here's what I got:
In the picture on the left, I got 5 rings, 4 bracelets (bangles), and the camouflage bandana they are laying on. And the picture on the right are two more rings (I am highly obsessed with rings!) The bow and Native Chief head on the right are an enormous size for me and I wear the bow on my thumb and Chief guy on my middle finger (but they are super loose). All for a dollar each.

The last thing I got at the auction was these harem animal print pants. I saw them on a mannequin and had to have them. I only saw one pair and they were in the size I would choose! And I am modeling them here with my Lita knock-off that I am still in LOVE with!! There were other cute things too but not that I wanted to spend money on I guess. =/

Then we went to Chili's for lunch and my brother paid for us. =) ... The food was really good too!

Then we went across the street to the movies where I took this double date picture with the Twilight cardboard. lol... (I can't wait to see that! )...and we saw Paranormal Activity 3. Which btw was super scary and I almost wanted to cry at one part! Even my brother was scared! Hahahaha...(We were joking with him about it afterwards)

Then we went to Target (again I know) because Casey and I wanted to. I have been wanting some lavendar scented baby lotion (or a generic version) and forgot the last time I was there. And I saw some no more tangles that I wanted too, and a pair of blue jeans I have been looking for (Part2). So we ended up deciding we were going to go to Walmart afterwards to look for a couple things Target didnt have so I put down the no more tangles and Target brand lotion. Thinking I would find it hopefully for cheaper at Wally World. No such luck. What a disappointment. So I got this generic brand of no more tangles and some really inexpensive liquid eyeliner that I have been wanting to try and a few other things. (Like medicine for my mom's headache and a sweater)
So there is Part 1 of my weekend (well it is all of it minus the clothes haha) I might get a chance to go BACK to Target tonight to exchange the Bio-oil and maybe get their baby lotion.
Wish me luck! =)



  1. Dang! Those pants are crazy!! And your outfit for the baby shower is adorable! Who's shower was it? lol, now I'm all curious if I know them or not.

    What auctions are these and where? They just sell clothes and accessories or a ton of random stuff? I'm interested!!

    The shoes look great on you! And I'm laughing hecka hard at the Breaking Dawn pic, lol

    Please let me know how you like that eye shadow set! I look at it the last 5 times I went to Target but I'm not experienced enough with eye shadow to buy/test lol ;(

  2. Thank you! It was Linda Hernandez... well, Linda Thrift now.

    Yeah, this auction is at a building called Shop's on Stockton blvd near Gerber...? I guess it is open every day but Tuesday. And on Tuesday the one in Galt that is bigger and better is open. Yeah they just sell a bunch of random stuff. I like to go for the dollar jewelry.

    LOL ...I know, I'm so short and wide compared to Kristen Stewart on their date...hahaha

    Well I tried out one of the eyeshadows this morning and I liked it... I think for 5 dollars it's pretty good! There is a little bit of glitter in some of them though.

  3. Your outfit for the baby shower was cute!! Well done, my friend.

    You made me LOL so bad at the Twilight pic my cubicle neighbors were like, WTH are you laughing at?! Priceless!
