Weekend Recap and an OOTD

harry potter.jpg{we heart it}

Its Tuesday morning and I'm just now sitting down to write a "hey, how was your weekend" post.  Eeesh, yesterday was certainly one of those Mondays, and to be honest, I think it may just be one those weeks.  Sigh.  But weekends feel even better when they follow a crazy busy week, so I'm embracing the crazy for now.  Speaking of weekends, here's how I spent mine...

Friday...
-A full day shift at the store.
-A thrilling trip to Best Buy so Matt and I could purchase a "home phone."  (We need one for some upcoming phone interviews.)  I didn't even know people used those things anymore, so when we walked into Best Buy, I asked the associated, "Do you sell real phones?"  He looked confused.  Not sure why he couldn't read my mind.
-Part 2 of Matt and I's Harry Potter movie marathon.  We're preparing for November 19, by obsessively watching HP 1-6 as many times as possible.

Saturday...
-A day off, hooray!  Unfortunately, I had to spend it doing grown up things like cleaning, grocery shopping, laundry, etc.  Boo for being a grown up.
-A trip to stock up on firewood.  Oh how quickly this Texas girl is learning about a midwest winter.
-Watching one of the most painful Sooner football games in history.  There are no words.  It was horrible.
-Softening the painful Sooner loss with Part 3 of the Harry Potter movie marathon.

Sunday...
-An 8:00 am meeting at the store to prepare for the holiday season and Black Friday.  I know a lot of retail people dread the crowds of Black Friday, but I am really excited to work that day and be a part of the craziness.
-Dinner and drinks with some of my favorite coworkers.
-Watching one of our store associates as Christine, the lead in Phantom of the Opera.  She was wonderful and it was so fun to see her in her element.
-Getting out of a speeding ticket on the way home from the show.  I don't know if it was the Texas plates or my southern smile, but I got off with a stern "slow down" warning.  Woo hoo, yes sir!

And here is a quick OOTD from Friday.  I feel like I wear a variation of this outfit everyday.  A dress, my leather bomber jacket, tights, boots, a belt and a scarf.  Can't go wrong.

I can't wait for HP7! I already bought my movie ticket :)

BTW, there's a great theater downtown called Kerasotes ICON theater. It's on Roosevelt between Canal and Clark (south loop) and it has HD screens/sound and reserved seating. Which is going to be key with the nutso people running around! It has a VIP section with recliners and a lounge with food and drinks!

Just thought I'd let you know :)

Haha, it sounds like you've had an eventful week! And you talked your way out of a ticket? Lucky girl! And how have those Harry Potter marathons been coming along? One of my friends is super psyched and she's dragged me along to see all of the movies so far, despite my never having read the books... I guess it's our tradition now!

This outfit rocks, the turquoise and yellow really pop!
Haha, I laughed out loud at your question to the Best Buy sales rep. I totally know what you mean though, barely anyone has a landline anymore!
Hope you're enjoying your weekend with Matt's sister!
