weekend recap

I am so completely worn out from this weekend. I apparently caught some type of stomach bug and was sick all day yesterday. It was horrible. Truly horrible. I felt bad because I had to miss out on spending time with my mom on Mother's Day. Hopefully we can celebrate one day later on this week. After about hour four of puking my brains out, I called her and had her bring me some Phenergan for the nausea. I was able to give her the gift I bought her but felt bad that I could do nothing more.

I got her this adorable little tea light holder from The Yankee Candle Store and their new scent, Pineapple Cilantro, to go inside them. It smells sooooo good. I had no idea pineapple made for such a good smelling candle but this is my new favorite scent for candles - along with the Pineapple Orchid from Bath & Body Works!

Other than being sick this weekend-- I drove to Chapell's house on Friday after work to spend some time with her and baby Caroline. My mom actually let me borrow some money until I get my first paycheck to buy some work clothes. How pathetic, right? Well, I am in desperate need. And, of course, I couldn't find anything I wanted! When I have no money I find a million things I want and when I have the money--nothing. It is so frustrating!

Saturday morning we drove to Hartsville to pick up a cake for Caroline's 6-month birthday party! It was precious - I hate that I forgot to take a picture of it. We stopped by a small boutique and I found some brown, flat gladiator-type sandals made by Bamboo. They were only $21! I will be able to wear them to work and out and about with a little sundress. I tried to find a picture of them on the Internet but had no luck. I also have a pair of Bamboo boots that I purchased from Alloy during the winter. Great shoes.

I headed back to the beach relatively early in the day so I could stop by the mall here. I only found one pair of dress pants and a skirt from Dillard's. No luck finding those online either. I have a few items saved on Victoria's Secret website and plan to buy them when I get paid on Friday. I will slowly but surely build up my work wardrobe.

That's about it for my weekend. We started our new summer hours at work today. I work 10 hour days Monday through Thursday and then have Friday off. After being sick all day yesterday, it was exhausting working 10 hours today. I will be grateful for it come Friday though. And NOW, Brian's mom is coming into town tomorrow until Monday because his younger brother graduates from a Navy program on Friday and he stationed only an hour away. Ahhhh.... I will be really glad when all the company settles down for a while. I hope everyone had a better weekend than me! I will leave you with a lovely six month picture of baby Caroline!
