The Workend

I hope everyone had a good weekend. The weekends are actually my work week. I work Thursday-Sunday, so if I want to have a weekend with friends and family, I usually have to squeeze it in between work. Luckily, I've been doing this for awhile now so I have a good hang of it. I like to call them my Workends. 

Friday night after work, I went and saw Inception.
We got really lucky and scored the last 2 tickets making it sold out. Since it was sold out, the theater even had to have an usher to show people to seats. I was pretty impressed because I haven't seen a packed out crowd like that in awhile (unless it was a midnight showing aka...Twilight Saga). I was leery about seeing this but ended up loving it! It was such a great movie that I want to go and see it again. 

Saturday after work, I did a little shopping and ended up buying this dress. 
I found it at Target and they had it in about 6 color options. I might go back and get it in pink because for $15 bucks that's too good of a deal. It's also really comfortable! After getting my shopping done, I was really craving breakfast food for dinner. And what better place to find breakfast food for dinner? Bob Evans! 
I stuffed myself full with hash browns, pancakes, bacon and eggs. It was AMAZING!

Sunday night, after I got off work, we ended up eating dinner at one of my favorite places: The Olive Garden! I'm a huge fan of their fettucini alfredo. 
I get it almost every single time I go there. It never gets old, I love it! After the OG, I decided to come home and crash. It was a very long work week for me and now I'm so excited to be on my weekend.

Lucky!! I want to see Inception sooo bad! And now that I've had someone confirm that's it's worth watching I might have to make that happen this week :)

So not fair! he hee We don't have a Target or an Olive Garden! Looks like you had a great weekend.

Meghan said...

What a perfect weekend! Anything that includes Target and the Olive Garden is aces in my book!

I am dying to see Inception! I think the hubs and I might go tonight!

Krystal said...

I've seen those Target dresses and they are so cute! =) When you find a good sundress, which is rare in my opinion, buy one in every color!

I want to see that movie! Looks amazing!

Steph S. said...

Yes, Inception was a great time! I'm still mulling over it... i think I need to go see it again. or a few more times...
The dress is super cute, DO go back and get the pink one! Bob Evans is my favorite place for comfort food, esp. in the fall and winter. I love going and getting breakfast for dinner on a saturday evening after being at a football game! Belgian Waffle... w/blueberry, whipped cream, and syrup = my favorite! And the cheese ravioli and white choc. raspberry cheesecake are my Olive Garden regulars.

Wow, you obviously touched my heart and stomach with THIS post! Happy Monday!

Looks like you had a great WORKEND! I love the Target find and I, too, ALWAYS order the fetticine from OG!

Thanks for the review about Inception. I have seen multiple previews and had no desire to see it because I couldn't figure out what it was about. But there has been so much good buzz about it, I think I may have to check it out. And SUPER CUTE dress! I think I may make my way to Target today :)

Steph said...

That dress is super cute! And I always get the Fettuccine Alfredo too.

JMJE said...

Sounds like an awesome weekend even though you had to work. I love Olive Garden but I hardly ever go b/c my husband doesn't like it that much. I need to go soon.

I'm so glad to hear Inception is good - I definitely want to see it!

Selma said...

Krysten @ After 'I Do' said...

Oh my gosh I want to see Inception so bad! Glad to hear it was good. And I've been eying that dress!

mariahsmile said...

I want to see Inception too! It's hard for me not to get the soup, salad, and breadsticks combo at the OG, then some Tirimisu at the end!

Jenn @ WestSacHoney said...

Wow! A totally sold out movie! I hate when people leave one seat in between and then it makes for no seating so nice work with having a usher. Target has SOOOO many cute dresses right now! And hello Olive Garden I might need to have that for lunch soon.

Hutch said...

I love hearing all the good reviews on Inception. I've been trying to get my friends amped up for it for the last month. The positive reactions definitely help!

Kelli said...

Love the dress and love Olive Garden =) So glad you enjoyed your workend =)

A Wedding Story said...

I LOVE that dress from Target! I saw it in the Sunday ad yesterday and I really want one for the beach. Thanks for sharing (and reminding me)!

Sarah said...

Mmmm you're making me want Olive Garden. I order the fettuccine alfredo every time I go too! =) You're right, it never gets old. If only there were an Olive Garden in Hawaii... *sigh*

Ashley said...

Everyone is talking about how good Inception is. That dress is adorable. I love it! David had to work all weekend. So it feels like we didn't have much of one. :-(

Kelsey Claire said...

I wasn't sure about inception, but you have convinced me. I love OG's salad and breadsticks. Oh how yummy! I also love the dress!

Kassie said...

I'm the same way! I work on the weekends and fit things in with friends when I can. I saw Inception too this weekend and I think my mind is still spinning!

ChinkyGirLMeL said...

I saw Inception too and I also saw The Sorcerer's Apprentice. =) Cute dress sweetie!

samnhal said...

I went and saw inception on Saturday. It was so good. I was surprised by how good it was. It was like an intense 2 1/2 hours, without any boring parts.

Shoshanah said...

I loved Inception. It's definitely the type of movie you want to see a second time almost immediately after the first!
