Hey everybody! This weekend was a very relaxing weekend, but fun! Come and see what I did this weekend! 🙂
On Saturday, I did about 2 weeks worth of laundry. I tend to let my laundry pile up before washing because in that regard, I am a lazy millennial. 😛 But it all eventually gets washed! Nothing worse than not having clothes to wear, haha. 🙂 I also fixed a bad sewing job on my new red designer pea coat, which I will remind everyone was only $2.50 at a thrift store. 🙂 SCORE! 😀 Anyway, when sewing the two bottom buttons on tighter, I unknowingly sewn the buttons through the pockets making the pockets unusable. Oops! So this weekend, I got around to cutting the stitching out and fixing the buttons so the thread would not be sewn through the pockets. I must say the pea coat pockets feel good now that I can get my hands into them! 🙂
LOCMom was craving Chinese food, so we also had Chinese food on Saturday! Yummy!
I ordered some pot stickers which were soooooo tasty! Saturday is usually my cheat day where I eat some major junk, but not too much, so this was a nice cheat meal! 🙂
But before I went to bed, I was being a total night owl Saturday night and I did a nail care routine on my fingernails and toenails! I never get them painted or paint them myself, but I like for them to look healthy at least. 🙂 I just never get around to buffing them and I did on Saturday night, so all is well now! 😀
After that, I went to bed. 🙂
Money Spent on Saturday
Chinese Pot Stickers – $7.95
Total Amount Spent: $7.95
On Sunday, I went to the Sears in our mall which is having a really long closing sale and bought myself a sweater! Which by the way is a size medium, but more on that later. 😉
Yeah I know, it’s a Christmas sweater, but it was only 4 bucks and I needed one that fit me since my other sweaters are quite baggy on me now because of my weight loss. And for 4 dollars, I’m not complaining. I’m just happy to buy something new that will keep me warm for the rest of the rainy days during April. D:
After Sears, I went home and walked outside for my exercise because it was just so beautiful outside today in Northern California! 😀 It was soooooo worth it! Then after walking, I mainly relaxed and fixed my dinner. I had cooked up some ground turkey on the stove and I was so happy to have warm food in my cold, but yummy salad! 🙂
Money Spent on Sunday
Xmas Sweater – $4.57
Total Amount Spent: $4.57
What I have been up to!
Yeah, this weekend wasn’t too exciting, but I did have fun!
So just recently, I have started a new skin care regimen! I bought some day cream, night cream, and eye cream from TJMAXX and Marshalls for cheap and I have been doing a skin care regimen on my face every day and night! I noticed a difference until I started using my facial scrub in the shower which completely opened up my pores again. Uggggggh. Dx Now I have to start over again and buy some better facial scrub that is softer on my skin. The internet recommended me two cheap cleansers, so I will pursue getting one of those. 🙂 I don’t really wear makeup and go barefaced all of the time, but having smoother skin is something I want to try and do from now on!
Also, I have an announcement to make concerning my diet… I am OFFICIALLY a size medium in shirts! Woooooohoooooooo!!!!! 😀
See that little ‘M’ on the tag? It’s official! 😀 When I saw that this medium shirt fit me perfectly in the dressing room, I was over the moon! I just couldn’t believe it… In high school, I remember at one time being a small in t-shirts and I hope to get back there someday. But for now, where I am at is good! However, I am still a size 14 in pants, but hope to be a 12 in the future. It may not look like it in the above picture of me, but I carry all of my weight in the lower part of my body, so that is why I wear a big pant size. However, the top part of my body is pretty small, so I can get away with fitting into smaller shirts. 🙂 I hope to get closer to my dream by joining a local gym in town starting next week and working out again! I usually walk around for exercise outside, but the weather has been rainy on and off, so I can’t really exercise continuously in conditions like that. 😦 Since I magically turned 65, or in other words, have Medicare as my insurance and qualify for their Silver Sneakers program, I will be able to join this local gym for free! So neat and I feel so blessed! ^ o^
And I also have another announcement to make… LOCMom and I have a new pet! Everyone, meet LOCFishy Leon!
Leon is a beta fish that we rescued! As you can see, he lives in a yellow submarine,
a yellow submarine, a yellow submarine… and likes it a lot! Leon is a very happy fish that is going to get an aquarium soon instead of the bowl he lives in currently. He will live a much longer life in an aquarium, so I am looking forward to getting him a new home. 🙂
And since one of my awesome readers asked for a picture of the pink pea coat I bought, here it is!
So… Yay or nay? I still have it and plan on donating it to the Veteran’s Home I volunteer at since there are plenty of older lady veterans that would love to where this pea coat to church or to maybe even a party! It kind of looks like an old lady coat, but at the time I looked it over and bought it, I thought it looked good on me. Oh well. 🙂
So that’s what I have been up to! That’s it for this Weekend Update! 😀
How was your weekend?
