Weekend Wrap Up: I'm Still Shopping Edition

This weekend was low-key.  On Friday night, I stayed in & finished my library book, Inferno by Dan Brown.  I don't even remember requesting this book, but apparently I did.  At first, I thought, I'm not going to read this, why did I even request this, but then I started reading it & got sucked in.  It's not amazing, but if you're into Dan Brown, you won't be disappointed.

On Saturday, I had good intentions of getting up & going to yoga, but then someone emailed me a 50% off Old Navy coupon, so I went shopping instead.  Namaste.  I recently cleaned out my closets & officially own basically nothing anymore.  None of my clothes fit.  Over the past few years, I've tried to cut back on how much I buy at Target & Old Navy because the quality is SO BAD, but I need stuff that fits now & that I won't mind getting rid of later if I get smaller.  So I applied my 50% off coupon towards a pair of skinny army pants & a graphic tee to wear with my Madewell pleated skirt & leather jacket, a la this.

Back at home, where I can't buy anything, I unpacked the Halloween box John got out of the attic for me & commenced Halloween-ing up the place.  I still need to Halloween up the front porch, but this weekend's weather wasn't conducive to gardening, so the mums & pumpkins will come later.

In every marriage, there are instances where you don't see eye to eye.  Our top two are vegetarian meals & holiday decor.  John doesn't understand why either exist.  Having spent the day covering every surface in our house with pumpkins & skulls, I was operating at a surplus in the marital ledger of power.  John decided to balance things out by taking us to see a movie about space.  In 3D, which I can't see.  I don't do Opry Mills on a Saturday night, so we went to our favorite secret Bellevue theater & saw Gravity in "real D", whatever that means.  The movie was fun-ish; balance was restored; the Baldwins live to fight another holiday.

P.S. If you've seen Gravity, you have to read Neil deGrasee Tyson's #Gravity tweets.

My morning run got rained out yesterday, so I caught up on the important business of magazine reading & DVR watching.  Then I made two soups - one for us & one for my friend Katie who just had a baby.  After delivering the soup & running some errands, we settled in at home with bowls of chili & Derek on Netflix.  We started watching it last weekend & finished it last night.  I cried at the end of the series, which kind of surprised me.  That damn Coldplay song got me.  Anyway, it's a really good show & with only seven 24-minute episodes, it's not a huge time commitment.  I recommend it.

Shopping after weight loss is such a high. I can't wait to get back to my regular clothes.

And why can't you see 3D?

It is, although I'd like to get past the annoyed nothing fits phase & into the 'yay, nothing fits!' phase.

I don't have any depth perception, so I usually can't see 3D (or Magic Eye), but I could actually see it in Gravity. Who knows!

That's wild.
