Weekend Recap (AKA how the hell is it Monday again??)

For real, this weekend went by way too quickly.  Or maybe it is just that work feels so blecccccchhhhhh lately that NO amount of weekend would sufficiently prepare me for another 5-day stint.  I'm thinking it's more of the latter.

I spent the better part of the weekend indoors somewhere, as it was still 100+ degrees here in the DC area.  I mean, this morning when I went out to the car and it was near 80 degrees, it almost felt *chilly*...THAT is how accustomed I have gotten to the blistering heat we have been experiencing here as of late.

One of my favorite ways to escape the heat is a trip to the movies.  MVP and I saw "Ted" and "Spider Man."  Both worth seeing, although "Ted" might not be everyone's cup of tea...but if you are a Seth MacFarlane fan, you will not be dissapointed.  Also, I may have a new girl crush on Mila Kunis -- I think we would totes be friends in real life. 

Spiderman was SUPER crowded.  I was saving a seat for MVP as he was out getting our soda and popcorn and had to fight off what felt like 47 people who came asking if his seat was available.  Best part of the movie?  When Peter Parker and Gwen Stacy kiss for the first time....a little boy down near the screen yelled out "EWWWWWWWW!!!"  I could not stop laughing. 

I also managed to squeeze in:
  •  a trip to Ulta (SUPER sale on Redken shampoo & conditioner liters right now)
  • TWO different Homegoods, where I exhibited an almost superhuman level of restraint and only got two new cutting boards and a new flatware organizer
  • a stop at BJ's Wholesale for a snazzy new fan (because AC can only do so much when it is a billion degrees outside)
  • 2 trips to Wal-Mart, because when you don't make a good list for the first trip, you are bound to be going back for things you forgot the first time around
  • and a lunch at Chipotle
The only upshot to the heat?  You can feel totally justified in having ice cream for dinner -- really wanted peanut butter cup, but MVP and I compromised on Edy's Slow churned Drumstick flavor.

And while it is only mid-afternoon, I am already salivating at the thought of putting on pajamas and going to sleep tonight.
