What did I do this Weekend? (August 25-26, 2018)

Hey everybody! Sorry for the lack of blog posts during the week. πŸ˜₯ Honestly I didn’t feel like writing any because I felt so out of it. 😦 I also forgot to save my receipts again, so no spending summary for Saturday or Sunday. 😦 Yes, I am not a very good blogger, but man do I try to keep things active around here when I can to the best of my ability… > _<;;; Anyway, come and see what I did this weekend! πŸ˜€


On Saturday, I went to Folsom’s local library to pick up some manga books that I have been wanting to read! I find it even hard to believe now I don’t have to buy my manga anymore except for a few exceptions… O _O Hooray for AWESOME public libraries!

After the library, LOCAunt and LOCCousinR and LOCCousinJ came over to see our new apartment! LOCCousinR really liked our new pad and LOCCousinJ, who is going to be 2 years old soon, enjoyed playing with my younger brother’s old childhood Playmobile toys and plastic vehicles. LOCCousinJ also got to meet my realistic stuffed tiger, Kittybear which he thought was a real tiger! Kittybear, the 100% polyester stuffed tiger, tends to scare everyone when they first see her look at them, haha. πŸ˜› LOCAunt tried to convince LOCCousinJ that Kittybear wasn’t real by lightly batting her around and picking Kittybear up and flipping her all around on the carpet, but to no avail. πŸ™‚ We eventually had to hide Kittybear in the hallway so LOCCousinJ could play with the toys again.

Between playing, we also had chocolate cake and mixed berry pie! Man, does Safeway $5 Friday food from their bakery taste goooooood. πŸ˜€ Before LOCCousinR had to leave with LOCAunt and LOCCousinJ, LOCCousinJ went into the hallway to say goodbye to Kittybear the tiger and hugged her. ^ _^ Hopefully if LOCCousinJ comes over next time, he won’t be as scared of her anymore, haha. πŸ™‚

After visiting with my family, I basically relaxed all day. πŸ™‚


On Sunday, LOCMom and I went to a Mexican food restaurant with LOCMom’s friends in Folsom! I had two enchiladas with refried beans and rice. But maaaaaan, compared to my enchiladas I make (not my recipe of course, recipe here, MAKE THEM. YOU WILL NOT REGERT IT! πŸ˜€ ) they didn’t even come close in yumminess! The beans and the rice were delicious though, but I’m not sure if I would come back and eat at that restaurant since the main meal was just alright. 😦 I also got to meet one of LOCMom’s friend’s Scotty dog who sat with us as we dined out outside! Boy was he ever cute and he was so well behaved when I walked him! πŸ™‚

After our late lunch, LOCMom and I went home and relaxed! πŸ˜€ We didn’t do too much today, but lunch was pretty filling! πŸ™‚

$5 Friday Safeway Deals

I’m going to be adding a new section to my Weekend Updates since I look forward to this every week! At a local grocery store called Safeway, they have deals on some foods and other grocery products where everything is 5 bucks every Friday! I just started going to their sales after all of this time (D’OH! Dx ) and I am always buying a few things there that are 5 dollars when I go! πŸ™‚

Here is my haul for this week!

Cheap sushi rolls at Safeway get knocked down to about 5 bucks every Friday, so depending if I am hungry or not, I will pick up a package of them! This sushi is not high end or expensive in any way, but maaaaan, does it ever taste good! πŸ˜€ Paired with my own soy sauce and you got a little meal going on right here!


Those are chicken sushi rolls if anyone is wondering. πŸ™‚ I could have gotten the fattier sushi roll with the deep fried crumbles on them, but for 5 bucks, I got more sushi rolls in this package of sushi than the other sushi package with the deep fried crumbles on them. In other words… More sushi rolls to eat! πŸ˜€

And last but not least, I picked up a chocolate cake that was, by the way, incredibly moist and delicious tasting! I remember being so full after my sushi lunch that I could not eat dessert, so I stuck with my original plan and cut the chocolate cake into individual slices to freeze so I can munch on them later on individually whenever I am craving something sweet! πŸ™‚

So this weekend was pretty fun! Can’t wait to see what next week and next weekend hold! πŸ˜€

How was your weekend?

  1. That cake looks delish!πŸ˜‹πŸ΄ Does your Safeway have a loyalty card? Here on the east coast, they sometimes give you freebies with the card. We don’t have $5 Fridays though, so that’s pretty cool!πŸ‘


    1. Yes! I always use LOCMom’s loyalty card when buying stuff at Safeway on $5 Fridays and by doing this, LOCMom gets rewards for 10 cents off of her gasoline! There are no Safeway gas pumps in Folsom, but I always like to rack up points because you never know when you may need them. πŸ™‚

      And the cake was certainly good! I would say Safeway’s baked goodies are just as good as Costco’s baked goodies, expect in smaller quantities! πŸ˜€


  2. Wow, that cake!! Good idea to cut it up and freeze it; that way there’s no rush to eat it all before it goes β€œbad”! 😏


    1. Nothing like editing an image with the perfect photo filter to make a dessert look extra tasty, haha. πŸ˜›

      Yup, that was the plan all along! I like having my sweets cut in portion sizes in case I am ever craving something yummy! ^ _^
