Well, we are on Day 3 of my 4-day weekend (*w00t*), so I thought I would bring you up-to-date on all the excitement in my life.
So, on Friday, I mostly ran errands. I also ran a few miles. I went to the Giant and bought some necessary supplies, like kitty litter and paper towels. Then, I did a little grocery shopping at the Whole Foods. And, I may (or may not) have had a slightly boozy lunch at Adega.
Once home, I took a long nap. Then, I cleaned the bathroom. Yay clean bathroom!
As I was doing all this housework, I was reminded that my iron had died. I also remembered that I had a Target giftcard. SO, I went to target.com and did a little shopping. I bought a new iron (yay!), a new rug for the bathroom, a shoe rack, and some Halloween novelty lights. YAY!
And I spent the rest of the evening watching Downton Abbey, Season 2. LOVE!
On Saturday, I journeyed out to Wheaton to talk to the people who are designing my kitchen. AND, I totally LOVE LOVE LOVE the design. However, it is a bit more expensive than I had budgeted. I'm trying to see how I can make do.
I do have one major decision to make: the floor.
The cabinets are wood with a brushed aluminum veneer. And the countertops are this ice-stone-like recycled materials red. With the floor, I can't decide between white cork and red linoleum. Here are the options. What do you think:
I am leaning towards the red flooring.
After meeting with the kitchen people, I met my friend, V, for brunch. We went to Eggspectations. Yum. Then, we went back to my place and "watched a movie." (*wink wink nudge nudge*).
And, then, we came home and went to bed.
This morning, we slept in. Had some coffee. Eventually (after a little "movie-watching"), we walked over to El Golfo for brunch. On the way there, we met another V, the woman who was the front-desk receptionist at the company I used to work for in Silver Spring. She lives across the street from me. Such a nice woman :-) ... Brunch at El Golfo was delicious.
We came back home and took a long nap on the sofa. Then, he had to drive back to Philly (*sad face*). And, after we found his car, I went on a 7 mile run.
Now, I am home, about to have dinner, crack open a bottle of champagne and watch the last episode of Downton Abbey, Season 2.
I'm so glad I'm off tomorrow, too!
Have a great night and a Happy Monday (especially if you are off!).
P.S. the fabulous Earl Cootie is celebrating 101 Days of October. And, I'm a guest poster. Check out my October photo here (and send him some of your Fall pix too)!
