Shopped Out

For now ;)

We were gone from 7:30 this morning until 3:30 this afternoon! AND, if that isn’t crazy enough, my older sister actually went with a friend to Williamsburg to the outlets last night at midnight and didn’t get home until 6:30 this morning…and then she went out with us, too!

We didn’t have much Christmas shopping to do today since we’re doing homemade gifts for everyone, so today was just for fun.

I got some great deals, though! 1 pair of boots, 2 pairs of dress/work shoes, and a pair of jeans.

We also went ahead and went to Trader Joe’s today so I stocked up on some stuff I needed and got some fun things, too.

AND – the big news for today – Nick and I bought a new Canon Rebel! We really wanted to get one for our trip in February and there was a really good deal today, so that is our Christmas present to each other.


While we were shopping with the masses this morning, I had a small fat free peppermint mocha – with just one pump of each syrup.


Did you know they normally put 3 pumps of each flavor in the tall/smallest size?!? That makes it so sweet – I always ask for less, and it’s the perfect amount of flavor.

We went in a bunch of stores….tried on tons of clothes…and really barely bought anything that we tried on. In fact, I think the only thing that all of us bought was shoes!

I really want to find some solid color shirts/sweaters, but had no luck today.

My sister actually had to work at 1 today, so we went to get some lunch at Atlanta Bread Company before she got on the road.


It was just like Panera! So strange. Except this salad was much better than the last one I got from Panera – that one was half slimy greens. Ick.

This one was good.


I got the Half’n’Half with a half house salad + half Avocado sandwich.


Whole grain bread with avocado, tomato, lettuce, provolone, red onion, and some dill sauce, I think? It was tasty and there was a lot of avocado  :)

We’re finally home, relaxing, and (duh) watching more football. I think we’re going out for dinner with my Mammaw and sister once she gets off of work.

Should be good – I’m hungry!
