How was your weekend?
Did you do anything fun?
I didn’t do much except for a bit of shopping. I got a jacket, cardigan, and a skirt ($18) from Savers and flats from Goodwill ($5) and Ross ($10). I know. I bought TWO pairs of flat. I couldn’t help it. They were both really cute. And the ones from Goodwill are suuuuuuper comfortable. I think they are actual ballet flats.
My hubby also bought something pretty cool from Goodwill. I think I’m gonna have to dress up as Amy Pond for Halloween this year. Sans the red hair.
Anyone else feel like this:
Oh my goodness. It’s already April. Where the heck did this year go? And why do we have to wait so long for season 7 of Doctor Who?
