Story of my Life – Week 13ish

Story of my Life – Week 13ish

04/01/2014 / , , , ,

This past week or so has been an absolute blast! Busy, but a blast. It basically started a little over a week ago-hence the “ish” in Week 13.

Matt and I traveled down to Florida to celebrate some birthdays. See, Matt’s grandfather’s birthday is in March along with countless other family members on his side. Just to add to that, my mom’s birthday is also in March. So, we always try to get down there for a weekend in March to celebrate. This year was extra special. It was his grandfather’s 80th birthday so you know we had to make a Birthday celebration trip this year! Thank goodness Publix could fit all those names! ;)

After a great weekend in FL, Matt and I headed home to prepare for my parents arrival. They were coming up a few days later to enjoy some time in Savannah. There was March Madness going on most of the time so there was a lot of basketball watching and cheering on our Gators. Yes, in case you didn’t already know, I’m a huge Gator fan! Luckily we won both our games while they were here so all is right with the world!

Saturday was mine and mom’s main shopping day and I came across some great new finds and deals. Check out these pillows from 24e.

I went with the tan and white ones featured in the photo on the left but, it was a really hard decision. I pretty much wanted to redecorate my whole house based on all the different pillow options. Once I got home, I went to set up my couch with my new, pretty pillows. They weren’t there more than a minute before I turned around to snap the photo and saw this……Georgie was completely passed out on one. Sweet boy. Let’s just hope all he does is sleep on them. I won’t be very happy if anything happens to my pillows! ;)

I just called 24e to make sure the pillow sale was going on and, as of Tuesday at 5:45, it is. Pillows range in pricing but most are around $100/$150.

After 24e I had to stop by and pick up a gift for my best friend Jessica at Custard. Now, I can’t post what I got her, but I did find a whole bunch of new necklaces that Custard is carrying.

custard8There are state necklaces, zodiac necklaces, birth stone necklaces and more! Want to see more about these? Check back tomorrow for an entire Fashion Accessory post with all the details on these beauties!

After we hit a few stores it was actually time for me to go hang out with my Junior League ladies for an afternoon on the Savannah SlowRide. Never heard of it? Well, in Savannah we have a company that takes you around town on this giant bicycle built for about 16 and you stop at local bars to grab a cocktail or four. No, I am not joking. See…..

How hilarious, right? It’s a bit of hard work but, it’s totally worth it. You essentially burn all the calories from the cocktails your stop and pick up…or at least that’s what I told myself! Whether you’re looking to visit Savannah or you just live here and want to get a group together, you should definitely give these guys a call at 912-414-5634 or visit http://www.savannahslowride.com. I give it 5 out of 5 stars!

By the time we were finished it was just about time to meet back up with my parents and Matt to watch the Gators beat Dayton to secure our spot in the Final Four! GO GATORS! :)

So see, “busy, but a blast” is basically the only way to describe the last 10 or so days!

I hope you all have also had “busy, but a blast” type weeks!!

Happy Shopping,
