Saturday Indulgence

Typically on the weekends I spend my time catching up on housework that I neglected throughout the week and stitching. Today I took some time for myself and indulged (meaning spent money) on myself!

I started off with a trip to Hobby Lobby where I purchased some material for a new project. I am going to make my nephew Parker a Buzz LightYear photo album. I thought this was really cute! So I checked my materials and I have all the DMC threads. Just needed the material!

Then I went and took a stroll around an open air shopping center in town. Went in a few shops, just browsed, got some home decorating ideas. Then went to the movies. I saw Underworld: Rise of the Lycans. Don't let the title fool you! There is actually a love story that runs through the whole movie. A tragic one that does not end happily but nevertheless a love story! I saw some pretty good previews also! There's this horror movie coming out soon "Haunting in Connecticut" that I can't wait to see! The preview alone made my skin crawl! I can't wait! (Yep, I'm a horror movie fan! Big time!)

Upon leaving the movie theatre, discovered that the temperature had dropped about 20 degrees! I was not prepared for that!!!! I had on jeans, t-shirt and flip flops! It was quite frigid and raining! The temperature dropped to 54 degrees! I ran across the street to California Pizza Kitchen where I had a yummy grilled vegetable foccacia sandwich for lunch! Then on to Barnes and Nobles were I browsed a little bit more!

On my way home I stopped at the convenience store for my lottery tickets (can't win if you don't buy!) and indulged some more by purchasing Ding Dongs! Yep! I haven't had one of those in years! It's been so long that I can't even remember the last time!

So overall, this Saturday has been very pleasant!!! And it is not over yet! I have plenty of hours to do some stitching and tonight I will watch the men's LSU basketball team play #15 Xavier on tv! Geaux Tigers!

Ding Dongs are my absolute favorite, I gave them up several years ago when trying to lose weight. And I haven't bought any since. If I did, they would all be gone before days end, and I got them at Sam's!! Remember when they changed their name to King Don's?? Or are you too young?? LOL

Nope I remember King Dongs! Weren't they supposed to be a larger version of the Ding Dong?

I don't think so, I think they wanted to get away from the *dingy* thing! LOL
