Y'all, I had THE most productive weekend!.Larry went hunting for the weekend, so I spent the weekend with me, myself, and I... and Charlie ;).  I started my weekend off garage sale-ing Saturday morning. I got a few goodies, but nothing too significant enough to share. Then, I got home and cleaned the whole house. After that I relaxed a bit and watched a little Netflix. Then I went shopping. I went to Ross, TJ Maxx, Target, Hobby Lobby, and Goodwill. All I ended up getting was some Christmas ornaments because we have a whole tree to decorate for the very first time, so I'm trying to pick up ornaments here and there instead of having to spend a ton buying them all at once. After shopping, I picked up some yummy Mexican food to go and went home and sat on my couch pigging out. Saturday night I set up my shop my closet page. Which, I have to say, took a lot of work so I am very proud of myself for getting it done in such a timely manner!
Sunday I did a lot of laundry and watched a whole lotta Netflix. I also started writing thank you's for our wedding gifts. Then once I finally got dressed I brought a bag of Larry and I's clothes to Plato's closet (clothes that didn't make the cut for shop my closet) and made $87... yepp I was excited. Then, I went to Walmart to shop for groceries. Hoping I bought enough to last us a month.. I HATE going grocery shopping with a passion. I'd totally pay someone to do it if I weren't so cheap. Then I went home, prepped Monday's dinner and fixed Larry and I's lunches. I finished off the weekend with more laundry and Netflix. Production at it's best!


  1. Such a cute outfit! :) Love it! And I LOVE a productive weekend.. that's awesome! -Alexandra Simply Alexandra: My Favorite Things

  2. I love that vest!! And yes, being productive is the best :)

  3. $4 for that vest! What a great find

  4. Is it sad that your weekend sounds heavenly to me?! I can't even imagine what two days to myself to be productive would even look like! I probably wouldn't know what to do!

    I love how you paired the vest with patterned pants. Great outfit!

  5. Love this look! It sounds like you had a pretty fantastic weekend--you hit up lots of my favorite stores!

  6. Wow, it sounds like you got done! At least it was much more exciting than my weekend: reading, soccer game, more reading, writing, test prepping, and lesson planning. So fun. I am so impressed with your jewel-removing skills! I was considering buying the vest but I just didn't love the gems. Also, way to go on getting so much cash from Plato's Closet. I have yet to make a dime from them (for my clothes... I got $2 for an old pair of hubby's jeans).

  7. Wow that does sound like a very productive weekend! What are you currently watching on Netflix? I just finished Orange is the New Black which is SO good btw and started Scandal which is also excellent so far!
