Weekend Wrap Up

This weekend, I went home to have a mini-girl’s weekend with my Mom. David’s Bridal has been dying for me to pick up my dress, since the beginning of June, so we did that! It was crazy because when we ordered it, they said that it would take 3-4 months to come in and it ended up only taking 10 DAYS, i ‘ m   n o t   e v e n   k i d d i n g. I thought it was going to be a huge rush to find the right one and buy it so that we didn’t have to put a rush on the order, but turns out I have it in my possession and it’s ready to be altered! I cannot wait to actually wear it! photo 1CD9538E-A81D-4618-9379-3097C7479BD7_zpskvotpxsh.jpgI also found an amazing deal on these cool little instax books in various colors at Michael’s – for only $1.49! I have been stalking them online and have yet to find them for under $10, so when I saw this deal I was pumped and bought 8 (which was basically all they had in the colors I liked).  photo 73FD7D2D-3320-4EA9-9223-1F7FF15EB3CB_zpsxebl5iyb.jpgOn Saturday morning, we went for massages and it was pretty heavenly. This picture doesn’t really do it justice but I’d love to decorate our entire (future) house like a spa (everything really plush, neutral, and comfy) so that being at home is a relaxing getaway.  photo 88563842-5E0A-48B4-BDAC-8153621733FC_zpsrqoepsm2.jpgMom and I did a little shopping. I’ve been looking for big girl work clothes for a while…I’m so ready to move on from the college look. And we stopped for cookies! (Guess which one is mine!) photo CEEC28E2-C3E9-4F0B-BB88-F4645DEB9115_zps7uwpprym.jpgHere is the product of the shopping – three pair of work trousers, a nice pair of jeans, and two shirts for under $100. Both the Limited and Loft are having nice sales on these items right now. I super love their quality and fit, but normally not their prices. Sale items are definitely the way to go. photo 9E519C28-BCE9-4D2E-94FA-E59C69DEEF18_zps40diq8d1.jpgOn Sunday, we celebrated this lovely bride-to-be in St. Louis. SO pumped for their wedding and other festivities in less than two weeks! photo A99D44EE-EFFA-4338-93F5-6E0ADDC8FEF3_zpsds7cqbb9.jpgSince I’m obsessed with lighting, I had to grab this picture at the Country Club. The windows are so awesome. photo 50bcd13d-bcf8-4b37-a28e-11c19c7ee6ee_zpsd4ce74b2.pngAnnnnnnd…a sunset picture from last night. photo 5C52C469-DB77-43A6-89EE-0B79969A19D1_zpsnvqccdsp.jpg

Happy Monday, I hope you have a great week!

Weekend Wrap Up

I went home this weekend to spend time taking some senior photos, relaxing and spending time with friends and family. I realized upon arriving, that I had packed rather poorly. I went to Target to remedy the issue and ended up buying this adorable floral shovel (for $3!!). I even took the photo outside so that I looked like I was using it…

 photo C01651AA-622E-4DBB-8FC5-DE274402BF83_zpsvemeqlts.jpgI was particularly happy to be outside with the 60 and 70 degree weather. My family has this adorable little tree that produces NOT SMELLY flowers (aaaaand we actually have some of the bradford pears too), but this one is so pretty. photo 885A8329-8F74-47DC-A767-862F4AF8A645_zpsc8jvr6ec.jpg photo 44E2B18D-92FD-40D5-ADB6-0817BEA0FD7C_zpsmfr3wcjn.jpgB, my Momma and I all went to the wineries on Friday afternoon where we sipped the best wine I’ve ever tasted. Really. photo 20FB1290-9561-4100-8749-13C24DE88486_zpsnd1qejc8.jpgBrittany and I spent some time at the VB Chocolate Cafe. We both got lattes, my fav. photo CC616939-BEB0-4D14-B505-BDB1E73C7A85_zpsfzltjjd8.jpgSaturday night we went back to Ballpark Village to watch Hollywood 5 play. It was really fun and we even got some free food out of the deal, although we did have to wait an hour and send back cold food.

Laughed my butt off with my Momma at the Arch and Zoo while taking pictures of/with Flat Stanley. The concrete thing in this picture is supposed to be a seal…which was the whole reason we are holding him like that…

Weekend Wrap Up

obsessed with this weekend.

we got tons of snow ice, which sucked until we took an adventure to pizza hut.

i fell a couple of times, but what else is new?


he’s my favorite and so is this picture.

 photo e5a1db86-a968-447e-9987-759f5e0badc8_zps5bbb2248.png

i slept until noon and then proceeded to take a nap (later on) which is so not like me, but balancing/ice skating is hard work.

later we got some pretty snow to cover up that ice. ideal.

 photo 072A766A-BE23-46F1-94FC-10C6FE376057_zpsojct9oht.jpg

expecting to get more of the white stuff.

mizzou is already cancelled for tomorrow, so that’s fun.

i’ve already started my snow day to-do list full of fun things.

and i’m not even bothering with school because, well, it’s a snow day and it’s going to affect my ability to study/be productive.

i don’t have many of these left, so i’m gonna enjoy it while i can.
