Today is officially my birthday, but it's been a great weekend for me (despite being sick). Here's why:
1. My grandmother gave us her couch so we've created a TV room in our spare bedroom. Our living room only fits about 3 people, so I am so excited about this! Here's my dad moving furniture yesterday:
2. My husband took me shopping so that I could use my birthday coupons that I got in the mail. First stop was Vera Bradley ($20 off - woohoo!). I had finally decided on something when the sales lady asked me if I got my extra coupon. I said no and she had me reach into a purse to pull out a random coupon. This is what I got:
$50 off any purchase?!? I was so excited, I almost hugged the lady! So I obviously had to do some more shopping. I ended up with a wristlet and laptop bag (for my new laptop) in the new Breast Cancer print. So beautiful!
We then headed to Ann Taylor Loft to spend my other coupon. Brand new shirt for $3? Yes, please!
3. My husband planned a birthday dinner for me at Ruth's Chris Steakhouse for tonight. I was so happy that he planned a night out for me, but 7:00 on a Sunday night is a little difficult for this (sick) teacher. So we decided to go out last night. We got to The Cheesecake Factory and the wait was too long.
So we headed to Marchetti's, an Italian place near us. Again the wait was over an hour. We went to the car and ordered take-out from Marchetti's instead! It was chilly so we sat in the warm car for a 1/2 hour while they cooked our food. And, well, the car battery didn't like that too much. The car wouldn't start when it was time to go! Asked the nice people next to us to help us jump-start the car and we were off! What a night.
And Fall has officially hit New England. It was 30 degrees out when I took the puppy out this morning - brr. I was in the Fall mood, so I whipped up some Fall Words!
