I'd like to print a retraction. (Is that something people do in blogs?) Remember in Thursday's post when I made a horrible joke about going bananas because I had to smell Banana Boat suntan lotion on my face all day? Well, turns out it's actually Hawaiian Tropic so my horrible joke was unwarranted. Just thought you guys should all know. #truthinmedia #lamejokefail
Michael and I went to Salt & Straw (aka the best ice cream in the world) on Saturday and it basically made my weekend. You guys...they have Thanksgiving ice creams like spiced goat cheese with pumpkin pie, sweet potato with maple pecans, apple cranberry stuffing (and this is where it gets weird), buttered mashed potatoes and gravy, and salted caramel Thanksgiving turkey. I personally opted for a split scoop of sea salt with caramel ribbons and chocolate gooey brownie. I should've gone full sea salt with caramel but it was still delicious.
Michael got the salted caramel Thanksgiving turkey (which has turkey skin candy brittle in it...) and I tried a bite...SO not for me. I got a piece of the brittle and I'm not a huge turkey fan anyway, but in ice cream...ugh. I did sample the spiced goat cheese with pumpkin pie (even though I don't like goat cheese) and it was good, but it wasn't sweet enough for me.
You guys, I know I posted a ton of ugly Christmas sweaters in my Christmas gift guide post, but I found my ultimate ugly Christmas sweater this weekend. And I decided I absolutely need it. Penguins are my favorite animal, by the way.
Target has a ton of ugly Christmas sweaters, including a Darth Vader one, a really offensive one that mocks OCD, and some similar to other ones I posted in my gift guide: Fleece Navidad, Christmas tree, elf... And I just realized they're all on sale which means I probably need to buy mine right away, right?!
I also found a Christmas t-shirt I seriously want. I'm kind of scared of graphic tees though. I wore them in middle school and looking back they were super embarrassing. I know they have more stylish ones now, but maybe these Christmas ones are made for like seventeen year olds.
Not sure why I didn't take a picture of this next one but it's probably the best Christmas t-shirt ever created. I mean who doesn't love a good Mean Girls reference?!
On Friday night, we watched the Blazers game and ate homemade happy hour food. We had totchos with pulled pork, burgers, and a bean salad thing. And I drank Mike's Hard black cherry lemonade because I'm super classy. Seriously, I just love the taste of the black cherry lemonade.
I feel like they taste like Squeezits! Anyone remember those?! I loved them!
Michael and I watched Thursday's Scandal on Friday night and I got way too excited because Quinn was wearing my duster cardigan (that I had just worn that day for the first time, actually!). I could try to find a screenshot of her wearing it but that sounds like a whole lot of work.
On Sunday I went to Nordstrom to return the sweater from my October budget post (didn't like how low-cut it was on me) and I wanted to try on this turtleneck and this buffalo check cardigan/poncho hybrid (and it did not disappoint!). The purpose of this was mostly to see if I wanted either one or both to put on my Christmas list...but the sales lady asked if I wanted her to bring me a few other sweaters to try. I should've said no since I had no intention of buying any and it'd be less awkward upon leaving, but I'm dumb. She seriously brought me at least twelve other sweaters. So I tried to sneak out and make my return without her seeing me...but she was the one at the register...and she tried to talk me into one of the sweaters and went on about how they come in different colors and sizes. It was very uncomfortable.
I met my parents for lunch on Sunday before that and they brought me my moisturizer and our toothbrushes and a bunch of stuff we left. So happy I don't have to smell like the beach anymore. Also, my mom and I ordered the same sandwich (turkey bacon avocado) which was both enormous and delicious. Half of mine is in the fridge for lunch today!
After running errands I decided to stop at Starbucks. I texted Michael to see if he wanted anything like the good wife I am. I walked in the door and I had the drinks stacked on top of each other...Tully jumped on me and I dropped Michael's totally full drink all over the floor. I was way more upset about it than he was, thankfully.
Lastly, this finally happened. Living in Portland is going to make me gain about a billion pounds.
Did you do anything fun this weekend? What do you think about graphic tees for adults?
