Tuesday again, and again it is raining! At least the weekends have been nice!
I got a much needed haircut on Friday. If you’ve follow me on FB or Twitter you’ve probably seen the picture, but if you haven’t, here it is.
Speaking of weekends, Tara and I had ANOTHER great Saturday! Two in a row. I think it is some kind of record since she’s been a teen.
After spending the week in school with her friends, many times Tara prefers to not see them on the weekends. She is in almost constant touch with them through Twitter and texting, but she prefers spending time with ME! While I enjoy when she hangs with her friends, I love when we have these great mother-daughter times!
We headed out to the local farmer’s market that opened for the season on Saturday.
The crowd was great, since I don’t think the weather could have been any better. I bought a pair of earrings from The Rosie Collection of North Wales, PA, Patchouli lotion from Green St Luxuries, guacamole from Anita’s Guacamole, Phila, and focaccia bread from Alice Bakery and Confectionary. I like supporting local businesses.
After the Farmer’s Market, we headed to King of Prussia Mall. We wanted to check out a few things in JCPenney (I was disappointed in their women’s selection… after all that I saw in Boscov’s I was sure JCP would have a great selection!) Tara also wanted to head to her favorite store Hot Topic, the last thing she needed were more band t-shirts… but she got a few more!
We then went to see The Avengers. It was good and long! Two movies in two weeks. We haven’t done that in a very long time!
Saturday evening was a quiet one at home.
Sunday I worked! We got lots of new summer merchandise from the make up companies. So many new things I want to try. More types of mascara? There are already so many, and it almost always seems the newer versions are the ones that get discontinued. Great Lash has been around forever for a reason!!!
I like the Saturday off/Sunday work schedule. It seems our weekends are less stressful! One day for Tara and I to spend together, and another for her to just “veg” at home and do her thing. Which is basically, tweeting, texting, Tumblr, listening to music and watching a little TV. The life of a teen!
Now we are back to another school/work week! Tara has 16 days of school remaining. This week and into next are field days, 1/2 day field trip to the high school (she will be a sophomore next year) and a trip to Dorney Park on Tuesday. Tara will probably miss two of those three days. She isn’t going to Dorney Park (they go with their homeroom as a group, and she is not really friends with her homeroom – she didn’t want to spend all day with people she does not really care for…. Tara tells it like it is!) She also doesn’t really want to go to the HS field trip. There will be another one during the summer. It’s my day off, while I love my days off at home ALONE, I might let just go for 1/2 day. I wish they would get their finals over with early, and then have the last week of school for all of the activities. She does not have finals until the last 3 days of school???
Well, the alarm just went off.. I’ve been up since 4:30am! I don’t mind getting ready so much now that I don’t have to bother with my hair. This one really is wash and go if I want it to be. A little product and I’m ready to go. My makeup does take a bit longer… with so little hair, I feel like I need to make sure my make up is perfect!
