Skinny Jeans & insomnia?

This is not quite true.  I have been eating a ridiculous amount lately (along with eating terrible, terrible foods), so my skinny jeans aren't fitting me quite the way I'd prefer.  I've been waking up with school nightmares/stress all week.  There has not been one day that I slept through the night to wake up solely to my alarm clock.  I think something is wrong when you are literally having nightmares about "the problem student."  Not a good sign.

In some good news, I am super excited about some things this week.  I got a $10 Groupon for $20 worth of merch from Barnes & Noble.  Luckily D and I had ventured out to Cary last weekend and browsed B&N.  I found a couple wonderful books I wanted and just had to purchase the Groupon.  Lucky for me, B&N online is WAY cheaper than the non-reduced in-store prices. 

Seriously, this crochet book was 25 bucks in about $14 online!  I ordered that so I can improve my crocheting skills.  I plan to be a crocheting machine this summer (can you say holiday gifts?!).  I also ordered:

I fell in love with this book when browsing through it in Target.  I believe it was around $20 and was $17 online?  I can't wait to get it.  All in all, I ended up paying a total of around $18 (including tax, but free shipping) for probably $50 worth of  books.  Yay!  I'm anxiously anticipating their arrival. 

I've also got a couple of projects lined up for gifts.  I've been a mad women ordering everything I need for an upcoming attempt at a project for D.  I don't want to reveal too much, but he has a birthday and we have an anniversary coming up.  I did practically nothing for him last year due to the summer of year of no money.  I've got some lofty goals and hope they work out.  I can't wait to reveal everything :)

Last but not least...HAPPY FRIDAY!  It's about freaking time!

Ugh, work stress is the worst :( Hope it calms down for you.

Yay for books! I love buying them so I've got them right then and there, but I also love ordering them online so that when they arrive, it's like a present :)

Enjoy your weekend!
