Riveting

Besides hanging with the boy on Saturday and getting Starbucks with a few of my friends from my high school track team on Sunday (I’m realizing that those runners’ bonds never break), I just relaxed this weekend and enjoyed two gorgeous summer days.

On Saturday, we took a family picture in the picturesque park in my town that was basically my second home for four years. It’s where I had my XC practices and also where we hosted our annual invitational. It was pretty weird being there in nice clothes as opposed to a sweaty sports bra and singlet. For the photo we didn’t coordinate outfits completely, but we all wore white, navy, and/or gray, with yellow as our “pop of color”, as my mom so proudly called it. She’s the cutest.

I’m not a fan of selfies, but for the sake of this blog, I find myself feeling obliged to snap a picture when I’m in an outfit worth sharing. After taking this awkward selfie, I realized I was decked out head to toe in J.Crew. Even my belt (which you can’t see). I don’t know maybe I’m just a little obsessed with that store?

And a close up on the necklace.

Awkwardly smiling as I talk to my mom who came in mid selfie snap.

So now that the uncomfortable photos have been shared, I want to share something a little more interesting. This weekend I was able to try/buy some new things that I’m super excited about!

For dinner on Saturday night, the boy and I got takeout one of my favorite restaurants. COSI! I love soooo many things from there and could literally eat it everyday. Just a few of my favorites are the Adobo Chicken with Avocado Bowl, Korean BBQ Pork Bowl, Tuscan Pesto Chicken Sandwich, Asian Salmon Salad, Country Lentil Soup, (the list goes on…). I was super excited this week because I saw that they have a new salad, the “Smart Fit Salad“, which is “roasted sweet potatoes, kale, romaine, avocado, carrots, red pepper, green onions, roasted corn, black beans and honey chipotle dressing”. I love love LOVE sweet potatoes, avocado, and kale so I had to try it. I also go the new Peach Bellini, and of course a multigrain flatbread (probably the best part of a Cosi meal). HOLY CRAP. The salad and the drink (and the bread) were SO good. I could go on and on.

Perfection on a plate.

On Sunday, I went to one of my favorite places ever. Target. No really, I’m serious – I love it. It has literally everything you could need under one roof – cute bathing suits and clothes, awesome food, magazines, home furnishings, hair/beauty stuff, and so much more. I got a bunch of loot that I’m freaking out about. It’s the little things in life.

Here’s my Target haul:

-Super simple gray t-shirt dress that I can belt or wear with a statement necklace or scarf.

Archer Farms Caramel Macchiato Coffee which I made the second I got home. Did not disappoint.

Cinnamon Chex. Umm why had I not tried this sooner?

-Vanilla Whey Protein Powder, which I can’t wait to put in my morning smoothie.

-Goody Ouchless Stretch Fabric Headwraps. For some reason these are literally the only headwraps that stay in my hair. Even the ones with the no-slip grip don’t stay put.

Okay now calm down. I know those were some pretty exhilarating purchases, right?!?!

Yeah, not really, but I’m pretty pumped about them.

I also ordered a few things online which are a tad more exciting. I’ll show you those when they come (hopefully this week!).

After all that excitement, I’m pooped.

Hope your weekend was slightly more riveting than mine! 😉
