Retail Therapy solves everything (and froyo)

Happy Friday!  I am sitting here fighting a terrible hangover.  I wish I could say I was out last night having a great time and may have had a little too much to drink.  Sadly, I was at home reading the second book in the Hunger Games trilogy, Catching Fire.  I had to take benadryl late last night because I started breaking out in hives (I blame the stress of the books LOL).  Benadryl gives me terrible hangovers the next morning.  But I guess its better than if I had left it fester.  (I occasionally break out in hives for whatever reason.  No one can give me a cause.  They can be mild or really severe, never in the middle)

I think they were caused my by tude yesterday.  The day started ok.  I left for work and it took me much longer than normal (over an hour and 15 mins) because of traffic.  I decided while I was sitting at a stand still to check my work email….mistake 1.  There were two emails that irritated me and I couldnt do anything about them until I got to the office.  I keep telling myself to stop checking emails before I get to work, but when the traffic gods prevent me from getting to work on time, I feel like I have to check just out of guilt. 

The day didnt get any better.  We are getting ready for a big show in July and while I like to get things done early, not everyone shares that view.  Cluster!

I texted my mom and told her we were going to the outlet mall this weekend because I had a little spending money.  Plus I only go shopping like this once, maybe twice a year.  I had to deposit a check I received and my bank hasnt really made it to Georgia yet, there are only limited locations.  It was a nightmare to get to that location.  I was done.  It took me almost two hours to get to the bank.  Seriously? 

When I got to the bank I had two choices, get back in that mess or go shopping.  I dont need to tell you what I chose. 

I scored the cutest dress from New York and Company for $30 (50% off)!  I also bought a white cardigan which I desperately need. 

I love how springy/summery it is.  I can dress it up or dress it down.  Its a little big in the top (which is usually NOT the case for me).

Sorry the picture is grainy. I took this before leaving for work this morning and the lighting in the bathroom is just ok.

After I got home, I made the night a very quiet one.  I left the tv off, turned the computer off, and read.  My other friend just finished reading Hunger Games and loved it.  You must read it (ahem Megan).  I took a hot bath and tried hard to unwind. 

How do you remedy bad days?  Since Im saving my money pinching pennies, I like to craft or clean.  Or go for a run. 

What are your plans for the weekend? 

Have I mentioned how much I have missed running this month?  I do and I hope my leg is 100% in two weeks.  Its better to be safe than sorry, right?
