On Saturday morning, I drove down the street to pick up my sister so that we could head to the local library book sale together.
We both ended up finding a ton of books and walked out with a huge stack to add our our home libraries. The last time we attended this sale was in July and I didn’t know if our baby was a boy or girl yet, so it was definitely a lot more fun this time around since I could grab a bunch of little boy books to add to his shelf. I also found two cute little Easter books that I plan to put in his Easter basket this year!
After the sale, we ran to Target to do a few returns and shop around for a bit. My sister wanted to look at the nail polish on our way out and I came across this pretty color and loved the name of it, which was “birthday girl”! I’m definitely adding this one to my wishlist!
Then we went out for frozen yogurt as a little treat! This little cup of deliciousness hit the spot even though it was freezing outside! Now that I think about it, my sister and I went out for froyo last year when it was freezing out as well — winter weather doesn’t keep us away! :)
We sat at the yogurt shop and chatted for quite a while and it was SO nice to be out of the house and catching up with my sister! I think I’ve been experiencing a little bit of cabin fever with these cold weather and snowy days that we’ve been having.
Our next stop was the mall so I could make a return at Nordstrom (I swear, I never used to have a lot of returns / exchanges until I had a baby) and purchase some new eyeliner since mine is almost all out. I tried out a new one since my old favorite was discontinued and after trying it yesterday afternoon, I really liked it!
While at the mall, we also swung by a few other stores so I could pick up a few Valentine gifts for Andy and then we were on our way! Also, did you know that if you spend $10 at Godiva, you are then able to choose one free truffle per month? I do this almost every year and it’s always a fun little treat to pop in for a chocolate whenever I’m at the mall.
We swung by Chick-Fil-A on the way home because I had a CFA reward for a free salad so I wanted to cash that in and also pick up a sandwich meal for Andy since he was at home with Fletcher. I went with their southwest salad paired with a chili lime dressing and it was SO good! I’ll definitely be ordering this again soon!
Upon arriving home, I was more than ready to snuggle my little baby since I had been gone for awhile! I fed Fletcher while watching New Amsterdam, which is my newest show to binge-watch! I wasn’t sure if I would like it or not, but I’m four episodes in and loving it so much!
While I was chatting with Andy later that evening, I was telling him that my day of random errands and froyo with Andrea left me feeling SO refreshed! It wasn’t really anything out of the ordinary since it involved a lot of returns and random shopping, but it was just what my spirit needed!
What makes you feel refreshed?
