Great Saturday!

Today my bonus check came through! So off I headed to Gulfport for some outlet shopping! My goal was to get some new work pants and a new purse! I succeeded on the goal. I got some really great deals on pants, shirts, and pajamas! Then I treated myself. I bought myself a brand new Coach purse! I have never, personally, spent that much money on an item for myself! But I enjoyed doing it!!!! :)
The afternoon continued by spending some good bonding time with my friend Celestine. We headed to the local gellato shop and split a sundae. It was so yummy. We forgot to take a picture. It was called the Spaghetti sundae. In a sundae bowl, they took vanilla gellato and put it in a noodle press making it look like spaghetti. It was then topped with a fresh cherry syrup - spaghetti sauce, real cherries (not maraschinos) - meatballs, and coconut flakes - parmesan cheese. It was so yummy! And light and fresh. Perfect for a hot, humid weekend afternoon!
After that we went grocery shopping. Yes, together. LOL! It is such a girl thing to do! We went to a local market that specializes in pre-made foods. It was fun to browse and pick out things for the upcoming week!
Now I am washing all my new clothes and am going to watch a few episodes of the True Blood series season 1 while doing some stitching. So far, this weekend has been great!
