Weekend Mish-Mash

So this weekend was good. Got a lot of stuff done and even made it to the gym on Saturday morning. We ran all kinds of errands and did a lot of shopping. I got a new work outfit at the outlet mall which I'm wearing today and we bought a new DVD player. I've had the same DVD player for 5 years now and the last couple of years it's been a bit cranky about playing DVDs (it'll only do it when it wants to) and in order to use the remote, you had to hit a "shift" button before you hit any other button. So we went to Best Buy and they had a Philips DVD player for $40 so Stephen and I split the cost. It's just a basic DVD player, we don't need HD or anything too fancy but already it's sooo much easier to use than the old player. We'll take the old DVD player to Canada for the cabin.

I also cleaned out my closet and my shoes. I do this every few months and I was in a ruthless-getting-rid-of stuff-I-don't-wear mood. Since this mood doesn't strike that often, I went with it and got rid of 4 trash bags full of clothes and 2 bags of shoes. I gave them to Goodwill since they're still good clothes and shoes, I just haven't worn them in a while and can't really see myself wearing them. I have so much more room in my closet now and my shoes are all organized in their drawers...so much easier to find a particular pair. I got so tired of looking in my closet so full of clothes I have a hard time closing it and thinking, "I have nothing to wear."

I didn't get my hair cut this weekend but I'm going to do it soon. I'm waiting until my AWS day (next Friday) and I'm going to make it a total "Marissa" day and get a pedicure and do stuff I want to do. Even though the place I go to only cost $12, it's a Paul Mitchell School salon, it does take longer for the stylist to cut your hair since they're not as experienced as a regular stylist and Stephen gets a little cranky when he has to wait 2 hours for me to get my hair cut. So I'll wait and then I don't have to worry about him going nuts.

Eating was good this weekend. I did go over a bit on Saturday and Sunday but I tend to eat a bit less during the week so it'll balance out. Like I said last week, it's so much easier to make healthy choices when Stephen's making healthy choices. I'm glad we're both finally in this together!! Talk to you later!

YAY! I love cleaning out the closet days!!! I do it every once in a while too!!! I need to find a better storage system for my shoes though...I am thinking bookshelves or something...I keep them all in their boxes and I have to remember what is what and then if I have to take something from the bottom...yeah, it's a mess!!!

I used to have a VCR that was tricksy too (I had a VCR for SOOOOO long!! I didn't get my first DVD player until just over 4 years ago when I moved in with Danny!)...I used to have to hit it with my hairbrush (in a certain spot) to get it to work...it was sad, and you could always tell when I was watching a movie because my parents would hear loud bangs from my room trying to get the VCR started!!!

AND YAY!!! For a Marissa day!!! That will be great!
