Weekend Fun!

Hi ladies! I feel like I've been very neglectful of my blog recently, and I'm sorry! Work's been busier than usual and the weekend was jam packed! On Saturday, I spent part of the day with my mother shopping at a sidewalk sale. In Birmingham, we have loads of great shopping and recently a new area has become more popular. Its near the railroad tracks, and is therefore, appropriately named the Rail District. Anyway, we had a blast, and I will post a picture of what I picked up soon.

After shopping, I went to Pam's house to bake pies and make a wreath. I feel very very proud that I made the wreath. See, I'm slowly discovering my "inner Martha" and I'm a little unsure of myself. Well, it turned out great!!!! I need to head to the craft store to buy a hook to hang it on my door. I will also post a picture of that soon.

Yesterday, B and I went outlet shopping and to eat in Frankenmuth. Its a very quaint German town in Michigan (about an hour north). We got lots of cute things, including a Coach bag for me, a Christmas decoration, and the most amazing find ever! At the Pottery Barn outlet, all summer furniture was 70% off. Well, we bought a outdoor table that was originally about $300 for...brace yourselves....$30!!!! I know, the "find" of the century! The best part is that it mosaic on the top: all white with a red lobster! I was high the rest of the day. I'm not kidding, I get "shopping highs" all the time, but this one still hasn't worn off!

I was way too tired to upload photos last night, and will try to do it tonight so I can share with you!

OMG, I just took the hugest gulp when I saw the Pottery Barn find. Please tell me that sale is still happening because I will drive to Frankenmuth JUST to check that out.. if its still happening this weekend, that is :)

Making a wreath sounds like fun! I used to do that with my mom, but haven't in years! Maybe I'll have to do one again for this Christmas!
