See, I told you I’d post a little extra something since my Saturday blog was full of info for writers. Aren't I nice? Seriously, if you knew me in real life, you'd think I'm nice as hell. Or you'd think I'm an a-hole. Definitely one of the two.
Anyway, I had the greatest weekend! I darted out of work Friday like my ass was on fire and headed straight to this new shopping plaza on Lake Mead Blvd. in Henderson that I love, love, love. I absolutely hate to shop, but this plaza has a Target, a Marshall’s, a Famous Footwear, and a Ross Dress for Less (opening soon), so this place is like heaven to me.
I can’t wait for the new Ross to open! I love Ross—look at these four cute tops I bought at the store on Eastern and Serene last week. Total cost: $35.
I swear, I should be in a 12-step program for cute Ross tops; I have about 40 in my closet, arranged according to color. If I’m having a bad day or feeling the slightest bit depressed, I just head to Ross and pick up a new top for $7.99 and everything is back to being perfect!
So after work on Friday, I struck gold at Famous Footwear, where I found these Steve Madden Girl wedges. How freakin’ cute are these? Plus, I’m like 5’8” in them, which of course makes me look soooo much thinner. Seriously, that’s how heels work—it’s like magic! (P.S. My ankles are not that fat in real life; it's just the angle of the camera.)
Then Friday night my super cute and sexy BF and I went to a party at the MGM Grand by invitation of my beloved blogging buddy Hurricane Mikey. They had a very cool suite with a balcony, which was awesome, but the best part was that everybody there was like the nicest person on earth--Mikey's peeps are as awesome as he is! I got to meet some of Mikey’s family, including his sister Amy, who got married Saturday at the Special Memories Wedding Chapel. Amy is an absolute doll, plus she’s a Deadhead, which I love because you don’t get to meet many Deadheads in Vegas. Personally, I love the Dead, and can’t hide my amusement when I forget to put my cell phone on vibrate at work and “Uncle John’s Band” emanates from my cubicle. Yeah, then I’ll wonder why they chose me for random drug screening…
I also got to meet some of Mikey’s blog readers who follow my blog now, too. OMG, what a thrill! People seem to love the Courtney stories! Here I am with Drew from Wisconsin. He was really, really nice and has amazing calves, which you can’t see here, from doing step aerobics.
Whew! I’ll tell you about the rest of my weekend on Tuesday. It’s all good!
