Off to a great start

First of all, May the 4th be with everyone!

I’m already having a great start to the weekend, and that’s rare to say. Minus the fact that I have to work tomorrow, I think this is going to be a pretty nice/relaxing weekend.

TGI Fridays is offering their occasional (super (as I like to call it)) special! Buy one entree + 2 beverages and get one entree free. I think in the past, you only had to buy one entree to get one free and weren’t forced to buy a drink. I almost cried when I saw this because I won’t be able to take advantage of it this time around, at least I don’t think I’ll be able to. I over spent a bit on eating out last month so I’m trying hard to stay good this month. As long as I have no outside influences, I’ll be good. I’m too easily influenced when it comes to food ;_; but how I miss their Jack Daniel’s sauce. It’s TGI Friday’s signature special sauce. Anyone who hasn’t tried it, needs to! You can print the coupon here.

Last night was the premier of The Avengers. I went with a group of friends to see the midnight release. I think the last midnight release movie I saw was The Green Lantern? So it’s been a while and I only went to see that at midnight because I was bored. The Avengers movie was totally worth seeing. I’ve been hearing nothing but rave reviews on it ever since people were able to watch pre-screenings and were able to watch it first in other countries (lucky people). I had high expectations and it still blew my mind. I won’t give out any spoilers but it’s definitely a movie no one wants to miss. They incorporated A LOT of comedy into the movie, similar to Iron Man but it was packed even more with laughs. I didn’t know what to think of Scarlett Johansson as the Black Widow prior to the movie but she did a fantastic job. Hawkeye quickly became one of my favorite Marvel characters. Jeremy Renner is one of my favorite actors so that probably contributed to that a lot. Of course, Robert Downey Jr. is always love. With the amount of screen time he got, it’s easy to see he’s popular among most people. The movie is packed with nothing but action and comedy. I almost feel sorry that both Spider Man and Batman are being released after the Avengers. I feel like they have a lot to live up to. At the same time, with all the hype behind the Avengers, I also see both movies getting a lot of hype as well. I’m definitely excited to see both movies this summer but it’ll take a lot to beat out the Avengers.

Needless to say, I did not make it out of bed on time for work. I’m horrible with getting up, and that’s even if I’m in bed at a timely manner. Luckily for me, my director bought donuts for everyone. Nothing like a nice sugar rush in the morning and we also had bagels available during our meeting.

I’m also super excited to say that I won He Qi Crystal Designs Giveaway Day 3. Right before we left for the movie, I saw on twitter that she announced the winner and couldn’t believe that it was me! I love her jewelry, they’re made with a lot of care and time and it’s totally apparent in the jewelry. I can’t wait to receive the items. You can see a list of everything I won here. There will definitely be a blog post about it once I receive it ;) There’s one item in there that I am beyond SUPER excited for. Be sure to enter her Day 4 giveaway and keep and eye on her blog/twitter for giveaways day 5-8.

Not too sure what I’ll end up doing tonight. I still have the My Beauty Diary face masks that are sitting around just waiting for me to try. There’s isn’t a whole lot going on, which is nothing new unfortunately.
