Weekend Recap and Sunday Thoughts

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend, it seems they always just fly by! This weekend for me was pretty relaxing which was just what I needed after last week. On Saturday I did a little shopping with my friend Megan. We started at this local store in our area called Wits End, its basically this amazing Christmas store that sells amazing decorations and ornaments but also sells a variety of jewelry and clothing items (including brands such as Lilly Pulitzer and Vera Bradley). This place is literally heaven, its so cheery and definitely put me in the Christmas spirit. I scooped up a birthday gift for a friend, two ornaments for my parents and a pair of earrings for my mom.

After Wits End we headed to the mall really quick. I was very proud of myself because I didnt buy anything for myself, instead I focused on scoring some items for my mom for Christmas. My mom is my favorite person in the world to shop for because she has such a great sense of style. I wanted to go to Ann Taylor because everything in the store was 40% off so I was able to grab two cute skirts, a cardigan and a blouse for her at a discount. It felt good to knock some Christmas shopping off my list of things to do. 

It was freezing this weekend! 
Saturday night was the perfect night to stay in and have a fire.

I miss summer looking at this picture!

Today I woke up to snow on the ground... yuck! But I am headed to my uncles house for a pre-Thanksgiving luncheon. I always jump at the opportunity to hang out with my family, especially my cousins because we always have so much fun together. 

How was your weekend?
Did any of you do any Thanksgiving prep to get a jump on Thursdays festivities? 


  1. It sounds like you had a wonderful weekend! I miss the warmer weather too, but I am excited for Christmas!


  2. I a kind of a fan of colder weather, not freezing or anything but I like when the weather starts to get a bit colder! And the first snow of the year is pretty magical!

  3. You're going to hate me, but I am so jealous of your cold weather! I am seeing the Hunger Games tonight, so that will be the highlight of my weekend!

  9. You're in my parent's neck of the woods! I've been getting all my mother's presents at Wit's End of years! Buying Pandoa there is SO much easier than waiting in line for an hour at Crossgates :P
