Memorial Day Weekend Recap

I haven't done a recap post in a while, so here you go... Last Monday, my homie LM hit me up & said "I don't want to be in Orlando for Memorial Day, can I come visit?"  You know I said "OF COURSE!"  I was so excited, even though I saw here in March, it seems like its been longer.  She arrived on Friday morning & stayed until Tuesday.

Friday was a hellish day for me in the office...nothing was going right, I was ready to leave & start my weekend, and I was overall just stressed out & unhappy.  So I just said "fuck it" and dipped out early to start my weekend.  I'm so glad I did that, cause I needed to have some fun.  Friday night LM & I hit Mall of America to see SATC 2 & have some dinner.  Dinner was great, movie was trash.  I'm sad to see the SATC franchise jump the shark, because I loved the show so much & I was a big fan.  The movie doesn't capture any of the qualities that fans loved of the show.  It was just one longass commercial for fashion & other assorted trinkets, and of course, for Morocco (the place where they actually filmed, not Abu Dhabi).  And I was highly annoyed how they stereotyped the Middle East & its residents, especially the women.  I was also pissed because some idiot woman decided that her child needed to see SATC (WTF?  What kind of a horrible parent are you lady?) & you know I hate kids in movies, especially adult-themed movies.  She should have went to Shrek 3 instead.  Anyway, we also made a trip to Sephora, where I discovered Flowerbomb perfume and Lorac bronzer - how did I not know about either of these things?  I was out the loop but I'm caught up now.

Saturday LM & I hit the Twins game with my new friends S & D.  Target Stadium (the new home for the Twins) is beautiful & I really enjoyed going to the game.  I missed having experiences like this when I lived in Orlando.  Anyway, I had plenty of ballpark food & beer, which was necessary cause it was ridiculously hot on Saturday...like 92 degrees or something...and the section we were sitting in wasn't covered, so we had no relief from the sun.  But I had a great time, and my hair was cute that day (chunky twistout) so I was happy.  After a shower & a nap, LM, S & I headed to the casino for late-night bingo.  Bingo was wack ($100 prizes, WTF?) but S did teach me how to play blackjack (don't judge me) and I also discovered she's a fellow gambler.

Sunday was outlet shopping day, most of the stores had 40% off or more.  I got a bunch of cute stuff from Banana Republic, and a cute clutch from Kenneth Cole.  I didn't spend as much as I thought I would, which was a good thing.  Monday was a lazy day, we just went to Lake Calhoun, walked around a bit & people watched.  I sat on a bench with my knitting & watched folks go by.  Warm weather brings all kinds of folks out, and the people watcher in me, loves it.  I also saw some great eye candy running around the lake too.

LM left today, I was sad to see her go, but I'm just glad she came at all.  I wasn't sure how I was going to spend my Memorial Day weekend, & she made it a great one.

How was your weekend?
