It started Friday night when my roommate and I ventured over to IKEA for some household things. I bought a pillow and some kitchen gadgets.

Saturday morning I woke up early and ran ten miles. Yep, you read that right: ten miles! :) In the afternoon I went to Tyson’s Corner and spent five hours in that mall. You read that number right too: five hours. I truly haven’t shopped in such a long time and bought things that will last me quite a while for a great price: jeans, two shirts, necklace, flower pins, birthday gift, and lunch. All for $90! Pretty good, I thought.

Monday I went to Annapolis with some friends and spent the day walking around the delightful town. We got a late lunch at a Tavern and stopped by the Naval Academy to watch the navy boys practice football. Now tell me this isn’t the most beautiful place?

Lunch: $12.59

All in all a very relaxing, productive and expensive weekend.Let’s hope I can do a little better during the week!
