Weekend Recap: The One With All The Shopping!

Monday, October 30, 2017

I cannot believe it's Monday already!  I had a fun, jam-packed weekend, but that also means I'm exhausted on Monday morning (which is when I'm writing this post 😂).

Friday after school I had coffee with my mom, went grocery shopping, and then read/watched the World Series with Dustin until late.

Saturday morning I was up early to get ready for a quick day trip to Nashville with my mom!  We went to The Mall at Green Hills to do some shopping and it was great!  We both got really cute clothes, so I'll do a shopping post soon.

 We started off in The Container Store and spent 30 minutes wandering from aisle to aisle--it was wonderful!

 We went into Nordstrom and tried on a bunch of clothes.  One of the tops that I loved but didn't work for me was this ruffle hem top.  It was full of so much static when I put it on that it was completely stuck to my body.  I've seen a ton of bloggers wear this top and it's so cute on, but I wish it were made out of a different material.

 Mom grabbed me this top to try on in Loft.  It was so cute....until I put it on.  I don't like open sleeves or cold shoulder tops because they are too trendy for me, so this shirt was a definite no.  These types of tops look so cute on everyone I see, but they just aren't for me.

We spent hours in the mall and ended up having a late lunch at Fido in Hillsboro Village.  Then we drove to 12th South to grab donuts at Five Daughters Bakery.  We swung by Franklin on the way home, but they were having a huge festival and the downtown was blocked off, so we turned around and came home!

I got home that evening about the same time as Dustin did.  We quickly changed clothes and headed over to my sister's because her husband, Nick, had shot a huge buck but couldn't find it.  Dustin was going to help track it.  I finally made Dustin leave a little before 11 PM because I was exhausted #canthanganymore

Sunday morning Dustin had to work so I slept in and just went to our church service.  I made my crockpot chex mix...

And I stayed up finishing a book I had gotten from the local library which was really good!  October book review will be coming this week to the blog!

  1. A day spent shopping is always the best - and the container store - love!

  2. I've tried writing posts in the morning before work but it's so hard for me to do so and get out the door on time! I think I need to start waking up earlier!

    YES to homemade chex mix! My sister and I are making a big batch this next weekend! It's one of our holiday favorites and you'd better believe we'll be blasting Christmas music as we make it!

    I don't like trendy clothes either -- I'm definitely lean more towards a classic / preppy style!

    Can't wait for your shopping post -- I need to stock up on some new clothes for winter! I bought a few pairs of pants but still need tops!

  3. I could spend all day in the container store. It's my favorite :) Also... I'm not a huge fan of off the shoulder / open sleeves either :( Too bad about that ruffle top though, it's super cute!

  4. Oh, I am excited to hear about the book that made you stay up late to read!

  5. Oh don't even get me started on static and tops. It drives me batty that they make so many cute tops with fabrics that are just static nightmares. Sounds like it was a good weekend filled with lots of good stuff. Shopping and Donuts are two wins!!

  6. What a fun shopping trip with your mom! Those open sleeve tops I think only look cute in photos but not real life because they always lay so awkwardly when you move your arms. Glad you had a great weekend!

  7. I'm so glad you got the shopping day with your sweet mama! I don't like open sleeves or cold shoulder either but got a dress for Florida that I too didn't realize was open sleeves, lol. Yum! Crockpot Chex mix! Have a great day!

  8. I love browsing at Green Hills! There's a good little restaurant nearby, Goozy that has some yummy sandwiches and the desserts, oh my! I LOVE LOVE homemade chex mix, but have never made it. This sounds like the perfect fall snack!! Must try. Happy Monday sweet friend!

  9. LOVE homemade chex mix! I'll have to try it in the crockpot next time!

  10. Im not a fan of open sleeves either! Totally feel you on this!

  11. I love that ruffle hem top! I hate to hear it didn't work for you, though.

  12. The open sleeve pic has me laughing out loud!!

  13. I've never made my own chex mix. Your looks amazing!!
