Hello there! Happy Monday to you! Today starts a very short week. I have to work today, tomorrow, and a half day on Wednesday. Then I have off on Thursday and Friday. It should be a nice quick work week. I hope so at least. Did you have a good weekend? I had a pretty good weekend. It was quite freezing yesterday though. It was really windy and really cold. I will take this though because I do like this time of year. I love dressing in layers and wearing ugg boots. There is something comforting about it.
So let’s get to my weekend recap, shall we? On Friday, Mike and I made dinner at home. We decided on breakfast for dinner. We made eggs and pumpkin spice waffles!
The pumpkin spice waffles were from Aldi and they were delicious! They had so much pumpkin flavor to them. I was surprised how great they tasted because sometimes waffles can be a hit or miss. They either taste good or lack flavor. I was happy that these had good flavor.
After dinner, we ran some errands. We went to Best Buy, and then to ShopRite. I wanted to do another deal so I could get another $5 off my purchase coupon catalina. I actually ended up getting that deal and it worked out greatly! I was happy about that! So I had $10 off in catalina coupons to use off my shopping order on Sunday. It was great! We spent the rest of the evening, watching tv and catching up on the dvr.
On Saturday, I woke up early because I had an appointment at the eye doctor. I went to a new office. It’s actually where Melissa goes and I was pleasantly surprised. I had a really good experience. My contact prescription got a little bit stronger so I have to try the stronger contacts for a week and then go back. I didn’t think my vision would have changed but now wearing these stronger contacts, I feel like I can see so much better. Everything looks sharper and clearer to me. I did have to get my eyes dilated. It lasted for about 3.5-4 hours. It wasn’t too bad though. I just couldn’t see close very well. Other than that, it was good.
We ran some errands during the day and then we decided to grab dinner and see a movie. Apparently, everyone wanted to eat at Red Robin on Saturday. We didn’t have time to wait for a table so we grabbed a seat at the bar. It was awful though because people kept picking up their food and putting their bags right by our food. I felt like I couldn’t enjoy my meal which was disappointing to me because I love Red Robin. I got my usual turkey burger. I think we will need to go back so we can actually enjoy our meal.
We went to see Delivery Man with Vince Vaughn. I have to say that I actually liked it. I found myself laughing at points and just really enjoying the movie. I really like Vince Vaughn. I think he is a funny actor and it’s fun to watch him play different roles.
On Sunday, I went with Melissa, and my mom to ShopRite for my big Thanksgiving trip! I am so happy to say that we got really good deals! Now the turkey is resting and defrosting in my fridge. I am happy about that! I was really proud that I was able to get a lot of great food and ingredients for my dinner. I’m looking forward to it. The only thing that I couldn’t find that is super expensive is pumpkin pie spice. Anyone know where I pick up some for under $4? Please let me know! I am in need of it!
For dinner, we decided to make a Kraft Fresh Take.
Mike used boneless skinless chicken tenders with the Fresh Take and roasted veggies and made potatoes.
I really liked this Southwest Blend. It had a kick to it and it really had nice flavor! I was impressed by it. I think it would taste good in a burger too. We are planning on using a packet for turkey burgers tonight which will leave leftovers for tomorrow as well. So we will be set with food to enjoy before the big Thanksgiving feast.
So there you have my weekend! I hope you have a wonderful Monday!
