...My Weekend...


On Friday,

we started the weekend right with shopping for new running shoes. We ended up with the same sneakers, just different colors. We tend to do this often.



Then I got rear-ended. Not fun. But no one was hurt and our car is fine too. Just a little touch-up is needed. All I was thinking was, I hope I make it in time to the theatre to get good seats for Hunger Games. We did.

Since I am trying color on my lips, I tried this red and really liked it. I bought another color and boy was it ever horrible. She said she was red {and by she, I mean the label} but looked orange on me, not a good look at.all. I should have taken pictures that way you could laugh.

{What do you think?}

I wore the dress I bought online at Forever 21 a few weeks ago. It is a perfect Summer dress. Very light. But I must tell you that it is a bit see-through so I wore booty shorts underneath and it was fine.

But do know that when the wind blows so does the dress. You either can look like Marilyn Monroe or just a tacky woman who is showing her underwear to everyone. I am still going to be wearing this dress all summer. Sean has been telling me lately that I have been shopping for clothes that resemble a grandmother's wardrobe. He is the King of exaggeration. But he thought I looked hot so I'll wear this dress until it gives up.



The rest of my weekend has been spent making dinners, baking brownie cookies that were delish, doing laundry and dishes and playing with the furbabies. The weather is now deciding that it wants to be March so no playing in the sun today. I should probably clean the kitchen but I've gotten myself into enjoying Burn Notice and now it just doesn't seem that important. There's always tomorrow.

Oh and you are probably wondering what I thought about Hunger Games. I loved it! I am a tough critic and I loved it. Yes, there were a few things different from the book and some characters eliminated but I expected that. I mean, how can you not expect that when the movie is trying to get it all in with just two hours? Sean did not read the books {and tells me he won't} but he enjoyed it too.

That Katniss {what is her name in real life? yeah, I could google but I want to do this quickly since Burn Notice is waiting} is one hell of an actress. LOVE her! And to be honest, I think all of the characters were casted perfectly. And I cried during the Rue part. Sean laughed and no one shushed him.

They should have. He was such a jerk to laugh. I am sure it was at me and not about what was happening on the screen, but still.

Now I am just impatiently waiting for the 2nd one. Please hurry up!

Hope you all had lovely weekends.

XOXOXO

so funny about the shoes. I still love my trusty Nike SHOX! I really love that red on you! and I have a few dresses like that but I never know if it's okay to wear booty shorts underneath because you can still see through it? I really need to read Hunger Games!!

Jess said...

We saw Hunger Games too! SO GOOD! Casting was perfect, I agree! Again, bummed they left out some parts from the book (but like you said, only two hours)! Her name is Jennifer Lawrence (I think) and she did great! My favorite part was when she couldn't find Peeta after finding the nightlock he picked, and then she ran into him and said "Peeta! You scared me half to death! _ _ _ _ you!" and gave him a big hug... so sweet! Supposedly the 2nd movie is coming out Fall 2013 but I can't wait that long!

Haven't commented in awhile Faith, but I've been reading :) just so busy with college that I do a catch up on blogs once a week & there's so much to read & not enough time to comment!

Anyway, we had a pretty similar Friday unfortunately - my car was driven in to by another car :( I'm ok though, but I don't think my car will be unfortunately :( silver lining is that I'll more than likely be getting a new car

I love the drama that color adds to lips. That color looks good on you. I forget about lipstick b/c I've been so into gloss but it really makes the face pop.

Love the red lips, very sassy :)

Nic A said...

Faith! Love the lipstick and love the dress! I liked Hunger Games too. I've been hearing a lot about "50 Shades of Grey" have you heard of that? I think I am going to read that next! Oh and I wanted to tell you about my new obsession since you are all about lipstick these days. Have you tried Revlon lip butters? They feel like chapsticks but are lipsticks! Try them!

Nic A said...

You know I just looked at your pictures again and I REALLY LOVE that lip color. what is it? I wonder if it would look fabulous on me too??????
