Very Un-Eventful

Happy Friday the 13th. Are you one of those people that get all superstitious about today?? I don't think I've ever been that person... well okay I lied. Whenever my husband and I were flying to Missouri this past September it happened to fall on Friday the 13th. I would've been fine, but the weather was awful! Like pouring down rain, lightening and thundering.. and I absolutely HATE flying when it's poor weather. Okay, well enough of that.. let's get back to today;

Most of you are probably just starting your day, but being that its almost 4pm here I'm counting down the minutes until the hubs gets home :] (2 hrs to be exact.. give or take a minute). My friday's are a LITTLE different then the other days, due to the fact that the gym I go too isn't open. I usually try to get in some sort of treadmill walk (why do i go to the gym when we have a treadmill downstairs you ask.. well the treadmill here only seems to work for walks!!) This morning I didn't even end up eating breakfast until closer to 8:00, which is just completely rare.

Yup, you guessed it... another Blueberry Smoothie.
--And yes, I'm aware it looks kinda gross in this picture.
I seriously just can't get enough of them! I may or may not of had one for dessert last night too :) Okay back to my sorta non-eventful day. After breakfast, I laid around for a little until I realized a.) I was outta blueberries, b.) I was bored, and c.) I needed to find square pillows for our bed. Most places don't open around here until 10 anyways (I know weird, right!?!), so there wasn't really a rush. I slowly got ready, and headed out the door around 9:45.

Sorry for the bluriness.
I went to this shopping department called "Centre Point". It's kinda like it's only little mall. The other day I saw square pillows I needed to get for the bedroom bedding set we had ordered. Well I decided to pass on em, and would get them this week. Go figure, they were non-existant and I ended up walking out empty handed.. even though It was quite hard bc I'm in need of new makeup, but decided to pass and just order some offline (I'm sorry, I just refuse to pay 30 dollars for revlon foundation.. yeah this country is expensive!)

After my non existant luck, I went across the street to the Sultan Center. It's pretty much a grocery store, plus they have home furnishings upstairs as well as a fruit market.

Outside of the Sultan Center. It is truly a beautiful site!
I only went there for a few things aka my beloved blueberries, but ended up walking out with so much more. I don't know about you, but I loveee grocery shopping. I feel bad for the hubs whenever we do our 2 week grocery shopping. I usually have to look @ everything, even if I've already seen it 100x before. Oh well, something may of changed.. you just never know :)

Once I got home around 12, it was lunch. Very similar to yesterday.. which was a salad with this pesto dressing that you can find here. I pretty much followed everything, minus the avocado, walnuts, cheese and just had it on lettuce w/o any meat. It is delicious!! Oh and a slice of bread with some grapes.

I let my stomach rest for a little, and decided to go for a walk on the treadmill. I planned to do an arm/core workout afterwards, but after 90 minutes of walking I called it quits. I ended up covering a little over 6 miles and worked up quite a sweat actually.
Now i'm sitting here eating an afternoon snack of a clementine, grapes mixed with some fat-free whip cream, and deciding on whether or not I have the motivation to clean up the house a little bit... tough decision.


It's friday! Enjoy your weekend :)

  4. Thanks for sharing that picture of the Sultan Center! It is really beautiful! I was wondering what things looked like over there. Sorry your pillows were gone! At least you looked cute while shopping! Love that maxi dress/scarf combo. I'm going to have to give that one a try soon!

  7. The Sultan Center looks really beautiful!

    I have a love/hate relationship with grocery shopping. If I have the time & don't really have anything else to do, then I'm all about it. If I've got a long to do list, it just seems like a hassel!

    1. It really is. There aren't a lot of food that I'm very familiar with at all. It gets really hard and frustrating @ times because not all of it is in english. I buy a lot of stuff online @ vitacost.com, and then obv have to buy the meat/produce here.
