Week on a Blur

Not sure what is happening happened this week, but it sure is passing passed by on a blur. (I just realized it's already Thursday! Me, 3 days ago). All those times, I actually really thought it was just one of those usual busy week.  But by the time Wednesday came, I'd come home and I just had enough energy to make something that would pass as dinner (hubs would probably snicker if he reads this, although I did make up for it come Saturday dinner hehe).

And now that things have slowed down a bit, made me think of what I did. Ah yes...

Cruised around town in a co-worker's Mustang one afternoon. No, not really. He does have that Mustang, but no, we weren't cruising. A bunch of us actually had to go to a meeting after work, and the rest of us just happened to hitch a ride from him.

Happened to drive by one of these streets on the way home. I almost forgot it's still cherry blossoms time. Oh, the beauty of spring...

Stumbled upon this flavor by accident a few weeks back, seeing that it was on sale hehe

Oh. My. God. For someone who's not really an ice cream person, even in the summer, I had to exercise some self-control for me not finish the whole thing in one sitting. Yes, it's that good!!! (In my opinion, anyways.) And luckily, because it went on sale again, I was able to stock up. For how long? I'm not gonna say, coz I guess that will all depend on how quickly I can finish them, no? heehee

Then before I knew it, Friday came.

Met some friends last minute after work for a quick drink. It was nice as I haven't seen these friends in a while. Yes, just a quick drink {un}fortunately, as we all had something to do Saturday morning. Nevertheless, it was still nice. Nice way to relax on Friday evening and start the weekend right.

Then, yesterday, after my morning task, since I got this email from Gap about some sale they're having, I thought I'd walk through the mall. Care to take a guess what happened after?

Gap striped dress, on sale! ($30.56, with tax)

Hmmm... *sigh*... hmmm...

Ok, for starter, I knew even before this happened that I am going to buy this dress, especially after seeing it from her. It was just a matter of when. All along, the plan was to wait for the month of May, seeing that I went over my budget already (read here). BUT THEN, this email came along, with a deadline at that, which prompted me to check things out, and lo and behold, what do I see that's on sale, and with extra 30% off to boot?!?!

So now, what does this make me? A happy camper for sure, now that I have the dress, but all that aside, where does this lead me?

With a day and a half left in Apr, I am $45.32 over budget. In the grand scheme of things, it may not be so relevant, but it doesn't change the fact that I went over, period. My first month at that! Now, because I knew  I was over limit even before I purchased that dress, do I make myself pay for it by counting that purchase towards May?

Hmmm... *sigh*... hmmm...


  1. So easy to tempt you with those sales:P I likey the dress!

  2. It looks like you had a great weekend, I do love that dress even though you went over budget. I'm sure you'll do better in may!
