Monday Already!?

Why is it Monday already? The weekends always fly by so quick when you’re having a good time. Amirite?! And a good time I did most certainly have this weekend.

We started off Friday with a trip to the dentist. Luckily, it wasn’t me who was going into the dreaded dentist chair, but Munchkin. I really love his dentist, the whole office is strictly for kids and the waiting room is covered in toys and all the rooms have a different fun theme. Not to mention every kiddo gets a balloon when they leave.

I am happy to report that Munchkin has perfect teeth and was a champ during the exam. No tears for this little man!

Friday night Tommy and I went out for sushi! We went to our new usual Sushi Village and the place was packed, as usual. The sushi was delicious, as usual.

On Saturday, we lazed around the house for a very long time. We finally decided to get out of the house and headed to Target. I scored some really great deals from their bodega section. I got an 18 pack of Cliff Z Bars for under $7 and a huge variety box of Annie’s Bunnies for under $6. I also picked up some stuff for Tommy’s Valentine’s Day gift.

On Saturday night, we headed out to the island to visit the best baby girl in the world! Tommy’s goddaughter is now walking and I had a blast playing with her. Munchkin also had a blast playing with all her toys. It’s funny how a change of scenery and toys can keep a child occupied for hours.

We woke up pretty early on Sunday with the idea of getting bagels for breakfast. But not just any bagel would do, so we headed out to Astoria to Brooklyn Bagel. Since the last time we were there I took the sweet route, I figured this time I would go savory. I got a toasted whole wheat everything bagel with scallion bacon cream cheese. It was pretty amazing and I can’t wait to go back there.

After breakfast we hit up the mall. I wanted to get my eyebrows done and Tommy wanted to check out some new spectacles. When I got to the Benefit brow bar, I was told that they didn’t have anyone on Sundays that does eyebrow so I tried out the new threading booth that opened not too long ago. It was my first time threading and I probably won’t be back to the brow bar for a long time. Not only was it half the price, the lady gave me a punch card so when I get my brows done 5 times, the 6th is free! That’s a winner in my book.

While we were out and about, I got a call from my mom telling us not to eat because she had bought steak and was going to make it for dinner. When we got home, I prepped the steaks and made some sides.

Dinner was so yummy – steak with brown rice, spinach and asparagus. Can’t go wrong!

After din din, I got down to some homework. I have an assignment due on Thursday in which I have to revise a really bad contract and I have to say its pretty killer. I went through the contract a ton of times trying to make sense of it, but it’s written in such archaic legal terms that it’s difficult to understand. One I got a first draft of the contract down, I turned my interest to a certain gift that I am making for a certain day of Valentine.

I can’t say much about this gift, but I am having a lot of fun making it. I can’t wait to share later this week!

That’s all for now my friends, I need to run. Work is calling my name.

What did you do this weekend? Are you a gift buyer or a gift maker?

    I haven't had sushi in so long! That sushi looks great. :) This weekend we celebrated V-Day on Saturday. We saw The Vow. It was good.

    I enjoy making gifts. I feel like they are so much more sentimental that way. Good luck with yours! Can't wait to see it!

      I want to see The Vow so bad! It looks like such a great story! I agree with making gifts – anyone can go to the store and buy something, but when you make a gift it's extra special.

  3. Mmm sushi and steak sound so good! I've been curious about going with threading. Did you like it much better than waxing?

    • xsylvia1234 says:

      So far, so good with the threading. The process itself took a quarter of the time that a wax would usually take and it was half the price which my wallet loved. it was a different kind of pain than waxing, more like little pinches and your brows are not red at all after threading. I want to wait and see how long it lasts before I have to go back and fix em up myself. I'd say it's worth a shot!

  4. That bagel look delicious! I love eating bagels in the morning and would definitely get that bagel if it was near me. Can't wait to see your gift! Making a gift for someone is so much more fun than buying something for them. :)

      It was delicious! I'm really happy that the bagel place is a 10 minute ride away from me and not a short walk because I'd be in there all the time. The place is always packed with people waiting out on the sidewalk to get in, so you know it has to be delicious!
