I like to get up early on Saturdays and do my Long Runs so that I don’t have to rush on Sundays or roast on Sunday afternoons if the weather is nice. I attempted to get up yesterday early to go run and my body just didn’t make it. I ended up sleeping for 10 hours! That is not normal for me!!
After getting up Sam and I headed out to our favorite breakfast spot, Wild Wheat Bakery. It is fabulous! I had buckwheat pancakes with bananas and a hot chocolate. YUM! Great way to start off the day.
I was contemplating doing some work but quickly lost motivation and ended up running a bunch of errands which somewhat entailed shopping!
First stop: The sewing repair store. I was sewing myself an ipod cover the other week and badly bent a needle. I felt like the machine was making a strange noise and my friends told me to take it to this shop and they’d check it out. If something was broken, their repair prices aren’t too high.
Next I stopped at The Grainery. One of my friends goes here a lot to buy a lot of her dry goods. I thought I’d stop in since its near the sewing store. I got some black beans, oatmeal and a few ball jars to be featured in an upcoming post! I really liked it and may go back when I run out of my flour and sugars!
Then the mall. They are doing construction and the mall is a nightmare but its the only place nearby with a Victoria’s Secret. I was in desperate need of a new bra. I had a gift card from Christmas that was still unused! Luckily it was a painless process and I got exactly what I needed!
Then since I was in the mall I stopped by my favorite store! LOFT. I had gotten an email saying 30% off and while I had a nice spree there a couple of weeks ago, I thought I’d peruse the sale rack. Sure enough I found a great tee which ended up costing me $10!
Earlier this week my friend emailed me that a bag I’d been watching on The Sak was on sale and everything on sale was 50% off! I debated for a few minutes but when I saw there was only 1 left, I pulled the trigger! The $90 bag only cost me $38 including shipping! And I got it this week!
During my day ventures I stopped at Target for a few essentials and then headed to my local running store. I am into “supporting the locals” lately. I was also in desperate need of new sports bras. Unfortunately the selection was somewhat meager and they only had like 2 bras that were even in my size, but they weren’t going to be good enough for running. So I headed home and shopped here:
All in all, it was a good Saturday!
