If you live in the south, you know that this week is Carnival Week...or as also commonly known...MARDI GRAS! I'm not a huge Mardi Gras supporter but I do like having 1/2 day off of work!! :0) From what I've heard, our town has the 2nd largest Mardi Gras celebration in the state. Starts on the 12th night after Christmas and goes all the way up to Fat Tuesday (today).
So after leaving around 11:30 from work, I went to Books A Million to see if they had a copy of the latest issue of Women's Running Magazine. They didn't, so I ended up buying a copy of Sports Illustrated Saints Commemorative Edition...one for me and one for my dad! Yay!
As I was getting coffee, I saw that they also have soups at lunch time! YAY I was so hungry and Books a Million is on our main street that is shut off for the Mardi Gras parade so it would have been hard to find food elsewhere! Today's special was corn chowder which was oh so good!! :0)
On my way out through the MADNESS on the streets, I headed home but first stopped at Walgreens for a steroid dose pack prescription. It wasn't quite ready yet so I looked around and bought this Neutrogena face mask stuff to try! lol
I came home, ate my soup, put stuff in the crock pot for dinner, and now I'm watching Make it or Break it from last night (and using my new Neutrogena face mask! It's amazing). I've also researched backyard decks to put up this spring! I'm really excited about finishing up our yard!! :0)
Now, it's only 2 p.m.
I totally would have taken this opportunity to run. UGH. Oh well....better lying around and resting to get better than getting sicker and ending up in the hospital!
On a good note, my LLS shirt came in today! It's a coolmax shirt and I'm excited about it! It's from the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and it says, "I'm Helping Make Cures Happen!"
