A Weekend Of Firsts...

Well hello!! How are you? Gosh I have missed this blogging thing. Thanks for hanging in there with me while I was working away last week. I hope you enjoyed all of the links last week. If you haven't had a chance to check them out, please do! 

This past weekend I experienced life outside of my office for the first time in a while, so of course there were some firsts...

The weather here lately has been very "fallish-like" (first pic), but Saturday was absolutely gorgeous and I was able to enjoy it for the first time in a while. The view in the grocery store parking lot never looked so good (second pic)...

I went shopping for the first time, in actual stores as opposed to online, for the first time in a few months. I wanted EVERYTHING, but my prized possession was that wine glass chandelier from Pottery Barn. My dining room just had to have it, so I got it!! It was 20% off + I had another 20% off coupon, so I feel like it was meant to be. I had to order it, so I won't have it for a few weeks, but that will give me time to wash all 30 wine glasses... :)

So I raided J.Crew. I almost bought those cute boots, but I passed on them for things that I actually needed for the fall like this pencil skirt (in crimson), these jeans and a few sweaters - all on sale (except the jeans) thank you very much.

Sunday, I threw the ingredients of this chicken tortilla soup in my new Crock Pot and let it cook all day while I may or may not have lounged around my house while wearing a scrunchie. I'll never tell. That was my first time making the soup in a Crock Pot and I will be making it another 100 times... Very, very good.

I'm going to take one more day off, but will be back on Wednesday with a sinfully delicious recipe...

P.S. Another weekend of firsts...

  1. We need to schedule a shopping date soon. I am so glad you got that chandelier. Its ridiculously cool!

  2. Haha I know how it feels going into a real store as opposed to going online, I've been online shopping for so long that going into an actual store is amazing! ;)
    What a cool chandelier, you totally scored that one!

  3. Ohh you didn't get the booties! well next time right? ;)

  4. That chandelier is chic and adorable! What a fabulous idea! Going to make the tortellini soup this week. Yum!

  5. Hello

    Wow you did get some treasures! I lov the chandelier! The boots were cute but I am sure the skirt is fabulous!

    I hope you have a fabulous week, enjoy your work and your free time.

    I loved your links!


  6. considering how I have some tortilla strips on deck and won't be eating as quickly with my salads, I will certainly make this so none goes to waste.

  7. I am super happy for you for two reasons ...... first you bought that light, good job!!! Secondly, you took some time for you. I do want those shoes, badly!!!!!

  8. We've been eyeing that chandy too!! And, your chicken tortilla soup is in the crockpot as I type. Katie has a late flight home for fall break, and it is a fav of hers.
