Happy Birthday Dad! So it was my dad’s birthday and so what did we do? Well mom and I went to see Breaking Dawn part 2. I’m so sad the series is over but I’m happy with how it ended. The twist at the end was pretty funny.
Then afterwards we stopped in at Bath & Body Works to check out this new fragrance they’ve been emailing me about. I thought it was kind of meh, and their VIP bag? Meh as well. I mean you have to spend $40 and then you get to pay $20 more for a tote bag with stuff. It’s a good deal for $20 but still you’re actually having to pay $60 for it all. If you’re catching up with their scents or getting a ton of stuff they say you can combine their $10 off $30 coupon and the buy one get one free coupon I think. That’s a lot of freaking body sprays, lotions, and other smelly things. If that’s all you’re giving away for Christmas or you’re stocking up- that’s great but if you’re like me and already have one of everything, it’s kind of a waste. Perhaps maybe they should rethink this deal and allow you to choose the products to put into your bag, that’d be a better option for me. Just saying.
I did pick up a set using the buy one, get one free coupon. I chose Cashmere Glow and this is how they describe it on their site:
Top Notes: Bergamot, Golden Peach, Pink Guava, Exotic Berries, Gilded Apricot
Mid Notes: Glowing Muguet Petals, Mimosa, Fluffy Peony, Fresh Jasmine
Dry Notes: Shimmering Vanilla, Dulce De Leche, Sandalwood, Cashmere Musk
Aloe conditions and nourishes skin
Call me simple but wtf is a Gilded Apricot??
From that description I never would have chosen it since I tend to pick more floral fragrances like Moonlit Path but this has a light floral scent with a hint of sweet fruitiness. I don’t really even like to eat a lot of fruit much less wear it, but this was great.
So after the movie and shopping we headed home to pick up my brother and dad so we could go out to dinner. We chose to go to one of my favorite places- the truck stop! Yes, I love the truck stop diner, it’s called the Silver Skillet and its open 24 Hours, great for a family like mine that seems to be up all hours of the night. They have a lot of comfort food, awesome breakfast platters and the service is friendly. We all had steaks, except for mom who had the roast beef, I think it was too much for me and I almost wish I had opted for the pasta. Maybe next time. I think it was all a little too much for us because we came home with like 4 containers of left overs. It was yummy as usual!
After dinner we had to stop by the store to pick up some stuff my parents would bring to Thanksgiving dinner, so we stopped by Target and I ended up buying a planner for next year. I’m sure I’ll get tons of use out of it, considering how crazy my schedule has gotten but I can’t use it right away so that’s a boo!
