So this morning I went to Bed Bath and Beyond with my bff Erica. We went to get a rug, because my new apartment is carpeted in the dining area, and I want to put a rug under the table to keep the carpet nice and clean. I remembered we still have three gift cards from the wedding, so I figured I might as well get one at BBB. One of my friends told me that after a year they start taking money off of the cards every month, so I figured I'd better hurry up and spend it.
When we got there I asked the woman at the customer service desk to check the amounts on the cards, and what do you know, they don't actually take any money off of them. All three cards combined totaled over $150. This was so not good. John wasn't around to restrain me... In the end I couldn't find a rug that I like that was the right size. But I did get some others things! $80 dollars worth in things....... oops.
I got this plant on clearance for $9.99 (it's fake, don't tell anyone)!
This movie was only $5.99...
Twist and loop for only $9.99
(one for me and one for John haha)
I also got some storage drawer things to go under the sink since we don't have drawers in our bathroom. Lame! I had no where to put my accessories. Now I do :) I also bought a new cheese grater. This was a great purchase because guess what? A few days ago I was just minding my own business grating cheese for some part of dinner and just like that my hand slipped.
Please, my faithful followers, never let your hand slip while grating cheese–it's very painful. And gross. And bloody. And if you happen to grate your knuckle (like I did), it takes a very long time to heal. And every time you bend your finger it hurts. So I just advise you to be more careful from now on when you are grating cheese. Sheesh. So I bought a new cheese grater. I also got a little spoon holder for the cooking utensils. And I may or may not have purchased a cheese cutter. You know the kind that have the little string thing? You should be proud of me though, I put back the $20 decorative pillows for the bed.
Long story short, I still need a rug!
In other business, I have an important announcement to make. Everybody listen up close. In the last few months I have gained..... wait for it....... waaaaaaait foooooorrrrrr iiiiiiiiiit.......... almost 15 pounds (depending on how much I've eaten before I hop on the scale)! I'm growing hips people! I have a mini muffin top :) I am so excited. I am not pregnant. I have gained this fat all on my own.
