Weekend Recap

This was a gooooood weekend! It was very relaxing. Work has been absolutely hectic and I've been stressed to the brim.
Friday. I left work early and finished up my vday shopping. Afterwards, me and husby went to the parentals to catch up and have dinner. Then we watched, "He's Just Not That Into You." The movie was ookkay, I didn't think it was fab, it had it's parts (I'm not going to spoil, no worries).

Vday! Slept in (Thank goodness, I needed it.) Exchanged Valentine gifts with my man. I spoiled him with a card, chocolates, and MyVu glasses. What are MyVu glasses? Well, ever since Tricia's man, Ronnie got these, Patrick has been eyeing these. These are perfect for him, considering that he's in the Navy and they would keep him occupied while he's out at sea. Plus, he can watch movies in his bed on the boat with these babies on. So what'd he get me? A lovely card with a letter that made me cheese like a little kid, gift cards(Sephora and Macy's [there's no MAC gift card, so a Macy's gift card is good to use at MAC counters]), and my book light (LightWedge)! My booklight is amazing. He bought me one before, but ever since we saw his sister's, her's looked and worked soooo much better! It's absolutely nifty. So, I got those gift cards and the husby said, "We can go to the mall and you can pick out your stuff using the gift card!". I was surprised!! Oh gah! If you could only see his face when I shop for products, he doesn't complain, but the look he has in his eyes. I always feel bad looking around for stuff when he's with me!

After exchanging gifts, I made breakfast... mmmm! I love weekend breakfast, I have time to make pancakes, eggs, and all the good stuff! Don't worry, I wasn't corny and I didn't make heart shaped pancakes for my man! Then we got ready and headed over to the mall. I went to Sephora and I only picked out the one thing I had my eye on, which was a NARS palette. I know I said "no product shopping" for the next two weeks, but this was a gift, my dear! I tried to look around for other stuff, but I always feel overwhelemed at Sephora. I didn't buy any MAC using the the Macy's gift card, I'm saving it for the MAC event that my friend Kim is hosting.
Then! Off to our 1 hour massage! Oh goodness, I loooovvee getting massages. As I mentioned, work has been absolutely hectic, so I needed this. We got a full body massage and added hot stone. It was simply amazing! My massage therapist gave me the most wonderful scalp massage ever! Then when she got to my shoulders, that's when it started to hurt (but still feel good in a way). I had tons of knots on my back, especially near my shoulder blades. I should name it after my boss! HAHAH! So after the massage, she mentioned that she didnt mean to hurt me, but my knots were really bad, but I should feel a lot better now. After the massage, my nails were looking wreckless, so I got a manicure too!

Sunday. We ran errands and met up with my dear friend, Mar and her man, Christian. I'm glad I got to see her! It's been awhile! We met up at Skinny Dip (Yogurt Bar), mmmmm! One of my fave places to go!

Oooh yeah, so my Dermalogica exfoliating brush broke! That son of a gun cracked, so I had to get a new one. I picked up the Shiseido massaging brush, and it feels 10x better! Paired with my Fresh Soy Cleanser, my face is looking better and better.

Now it's back on the grind... womp womp. UGH! It's okay, it's Tuesday, and I can't wait till the weekend already, especially Saturday =).

I know that look! The other half wants to frog march me through the cosmetics department as fast as he can and tries not to roll his eyes whilst I'm eyeing the products ;-)

Sounds like a lovely Valentine's weekend for you & Patrick. That 1 hour massage sounds NICE. Will treated me to a mini-spa on Sunday, so I had a 10-minute massage. It was nice, but I'd love a 1 hour one!! Next time. ;)

Isn't the Shiseido brush awesome? Glad you finally got one. Woot!

I love reading your posts Jen, it gives me warm fuzzy feelings when you talk about how you do things with the husby. So adorable! I hope my newlywed life will be like yours some day. You are my role model!! Product buying and all! haha

I'm glad you had a great Valentine's Day. =]

Heart you!

"The look he has in his eyes" when you go shopping for products...is it almost like you can see his soul and manliness dying right before your eyes? Haha. Sometimes that's what Ruben looks like, but he toughs it out.

Looks like you had a great weekend! You sound like you really needed that massage. Hope you feel better now! I'm not crazy over massages, but I LOVE getting facials. My skin definitely needs it, thanks to this weather.

I think I have that Shiseido brush too. It feels so nice and soft, but I'm counting down the days til I get my Clarisonic Skincare Brush. WooOo!

Yay another great update! I love this post because I have been so stressed too with work and school. Ive been juggling both and its making me sooo stress that my back is starting to hurt. :(

I miss getting manis and pedis but I try to avoid salons coz they get too expensive. :/

That is such a great palette. I only used it 3x so far. I should use it more. :)

Sounds like you had a great Vday! :)
