Happy Monday lovelies! This weekend was a bit chilly and rainy but I still spent some time outside at the zoo with my boyfriend. The animals were surprisingly active and and talkative! We ended the date with a yummy dinner at a great hole-in-the-wall Italian restaurant. David has always taken me on the best dates and this weekend was no exception! Hopefully next Saturday will be sunny and we can enjoy a day at the farmer’s market.
Friday afternoon when I got home from work I had a surprise waiting for me in the mail- new Sperrys! Ebay has me going crazy stalking shoes, rompers, Lilly Pulitzer dresses, and so many other things. These beauties were only $6 and practically brand new! The seersucker material and adorable tassels just make them even cuter!
The weekend vibes ended Sunday with my new Sperrys and these adorable earrings that match my Vineyard Vines pull-over. It never fails that the weekend is too short! At least, it ended on a pretty note though! Leave a comment about what you did this weekend!
I hope you all enjoyed your extra day off yesterday (for those of you who are in the States!) I certainly took advantage of the three-day weekend and all the sales that were going on. I ended up scoring a Lauren Conrad dress from her fall collection for $12, Lauren Conrad jeans for $20, and a Cynthia Rowley maxi skirt for $16. The sales are the best part of the festivities that typically go on during Memorial Day weekend. Here’s a little look into my weekend!
I spent Memorial Day on the beach with my parents and got a lovely sunburn on my left shoulder. Bring on the Aloe!
For our little local beach, there was quite the turnout of beach goers. It was hilarious to watch the kids get in the water, which was freezing, and splash each other, freak out of something touched their foot, or get sand in their pants.
Flip flops in the sand are the best thing in the world to me. I usually buy white or gray sandals because they go with everything. I think these ones are from Payless.
For the beach I sported this shorts and tank top combo from Old Navy. I got the shorts last October for $1.47! Shop summer clothes for the next year starting in mid-August when retailers are really trying to get rid of warm-weather clothes so they have room for the back-to-school stuff.
My jeans are from Lucky Brand and my top is Old Navy, both of which I shopped for in the off season and got amazing deals on.
My dear friend, Abbey, gave these gorgeous earrings to me and I have no idea where they’re from. I love wearing them with other bold colors like the yellow top I’m wearing.
This long weekend was so desperately needed. I’m thrilled that I got to spend so much time just relaxing and doing nothing. I hope we get through this week without too much pain. No guarantees though. Enjoy you’re Tuesday!
Happy Saturday friends! I’m glad I have the weekend off so I can vegetate on the couch and catch up on my sleep. There’s nothing I rather do right now than sit in my pjs by the warm fire and drink my coffee. Shocking isn’t it?
Last night my baby sister, Rebecca, and I stayed up late watching Disney movies. We started out with the Cheetah Girls 3 and ended with Pocahontas. According to her, my Disney persona is Governor Radcliffe and my cat, Tanzie, is his dog Percy. Apparently, this is what I look like in Tiffany’s. Laugh if you must.
Anyway, if you’re looking for things to do this weekend I’ve come up with a list of things that I SHOULD be doing but I’m not.
- Organize my sock drawer. Seriously, how on Earth did my t shirts end up in there?
- Pack up the summer clothes still hanging in my closet.
- Touch up the base boards in my room.
- Style my desk so I actually want to sit at it.
- Reorganize my jewelry box.
- Clean out the attic and go through grandma’s silver dinnerware.
- Get rid of junk I don’t need. There’s so much of it accumulated under my bed.
Seriously, I recommend doing this while it’s still cold outside and there’s nothing to do anyway. Who wants to clean the house when the birds are chirping and flowers are blooming in April? Plus, you can do this in your PJs (see picture above).

Hello loves, hope your Tuesday is a beautiful one. This past weekend was a bit packed for me between homework I forgot to do, Saturday evening church services, and then dinner with a sweet someone. All in all, it was good even though I’m exhausted.
I decided I want to give you a little peak inside my weekend so I took pictures of an event I went to with my best friend and fellow blogger, Lindsey. It was called “A Taste of Saint Mary’s” in our town square. Vendors from all over our county came and were giving out small samples of their food. To taste almost everything it was about $20 total but well worth it. Great seafood, steak, desserts, and other yummy things. Lindsey and I had a really nice time walking around the square and then down at the wharf on the riverside. My town totally reminds me of Stars Hallow in Gilmore Girls during events like these. I’m for sure Lorelai and my friend Lindsey is Rory without a doubt. Now where can we find a Luke… 😉
I’ve put captions on all of the photos to guide you through my experience so hopefully you enjoy it. I certainly did. Leave me a comment about your weekend! I love hearing about everyone’s life!
