Yay, it's the weekend! Now What... cont.

For those of you who care or wonder if I really did get off the couch yeaterday... I DID!!

I live in an area of my city that is very popular with locals and tourists. It's artsy, full of shops, boutiques and restaurants.  It's sad but if I walk out of my house I can find something to do blindfolded.  The problem always seems to be the walking-out-of-the-house part.  Lately it has just been the lack of motivation.  I feel frumpy, exhusted, unattractive and my fat feet hurt.

I digress...My adventure outside started with a small art show. The show was nice but in my opinion, over priced and over rated. My husband and I hit a couple of the consignment and boutique shops next.  Should be no surprise that looking at all of those cute clothes I could not fit in to made me extremely annoyed. Next we walked home so I could get in my car and go execute some serious retail therapy.

I needed storage bins for my clothes that no longer fit so we went to, where else, but TARGET!!!!  I don't know what it is about that place but I cannot step foot in there without dropping $100 in the first five minutes!  Long story short I needed a $10 storage bin and emerged 2 hours later with a cart full of $120 worth of awesome things.  Thank you Target for making my pregnant ass feel good again.

Bottom line I got out, I accomplished something and got some exercize. Yesterday was a good day after all!
