Weekend Blunders

Let me get you up to speed, on February 2nd 2011 at 6:30pm Nicholas Monroe Hiatt's vehicle encountered a 4 legged animal with doe eyes and a pea size brain. So Nick's car is donzo and he has been using my little car for the past month to go back and forth to work. Nick has been researching and making spreadsheets that compare costs, and mileage, and tons of crap I started to zone out on. He has fallen in LOVE with a 2003 Saab something or other in black, with a sun roof, with less than 80,000 miles and under $7,000. In our quest to find this exact car we have made 4 trips to DC in the past 4 weeks. Everytime we go wither the car has been sold, the car has damage that was not listed, the price is too much, and anything else you can think of.

Well last weekend I decided to put my foot down, I was not going to go I made myself a hair appointment in Roanoke and I was planning a girls day to refresh from teh past 3 weekends spent in the car. On Thursday night I started to feel guilty for not going with nick. He would have to try and find a ride and someone to go with incase he bought a car. I tried to ignore my guilt but on friday afternoon I decided to just change my hair appointment.

Friday, Nick found a car he liked online and tried to contact the dealer. The dealer did not answer. We checked the hours online and they said that a mechanic would be there and we could schedule a test drive by appointment. We get up at 7:30 on Saturday and hit the road. We get to the dealer around 11 and there is only a mechanic there. He tells us that they are only open every other Saturday ( meaning not that day) and he can not let us drive the car since he doesnt have a dealers license.

Nick gets a call from another dealer who says he has a new saab. We get there and test drive it, and Nick decides it is not the car for him. By this time I am about to eat a body part cause its like 1:30 so Nick takes me to Panera. Can I just tell you they have the BEST chicken ceasar salad I have ever eaten. So I ordered that and a cinnamon crunch bagel - HEAVEN

Nick whips out his computer to look for more cars, so I decided to walk over to Micheals and TJ MAXX. I picked up some craft supplies- feathers (to make headbands) and some crochet supplies. At TJ Maxx I was able to score some new drinking glasses for $6, ketlle bells, and an adorable Earring Caddy thing.

Nick was still on the comp when I was done shopping so I decided to change the burnt out headlight bulb in my car- props to me

Then I went to see how Nick was doing and he found a car in North Carolina that is "Perfect". So we get to go home!!

Then I think to myself, Ikea is around here.... I was able to convice Nick to go to Ikea, but when we get there dun dun dunnnnnn There are outlets!!!!!!!

It was a great day, I got 2 new dresses for $7and a shirts for $12 from Hollister outlet. And a cute sweatshirt thing from $13 and denim bermudas $24 from Banana republic.

The mall was gigantic and we parked on the exact opposite of Banan Republic so we had walked about 2 miles and were exhausted and hungered. Across the street was a Pizzeria Uno, which didnt have a wait. We stopped there for dinner and then headed back home. (insert quick trip to Wal Mart to pick up BBQ stuff)

Yesterday, we went to church. Nick had to do home teaching so I came home and started to make the BBQ. I set up my new earring stand and did some cleaning up. Then we went out in search of a Geo Cache which we found as it started to rain (of coarse when I blow dry my hair). We came home and watched some burn notice and waited for Nick's cousin Kenson and his wife Ashley to come over for dinner. We topped off the night with peanut butter cookies and a wii party. Gotta love hangin with the Hiatts
