Weekend Update

I cannot believe it's Monday, and I'm back to work already! This weekend FLEW by in a blink, but it was still a good one. It's been a while since I updated you with some IRL images, so I thought I'd kick off the week with a few as well as a new link-up!

I spent Saturday over in Athens teaching, but on the way home I stopped by the best TJMaxx I have every been to out in the burbs. I must confess that I am NOT a Maxxinista. TJMaxx stresses me out, but I'd seen some great jewelry on instagram and wanted to see if I could find some bargains of my own. It was filled to the brim with great pieces, and I tried on so many things that my arms actually hurt (can ya tell it's time to get back to the gym?). Although I didn't walk out with it, I loved the heart top below. It is the doppelganger to this one that Liz wore on Valentine's Day from J.Crew. I'm tempted to go back and get it! 

Later, I spent some time with my Julibox goodies. I cannot wait to share more info about this unique subscription box with you soon. Let's just say that I totally agree with their sentiment "May we never be out of spirits." 

Sunday, I wrote a few thank-you notes on my new note cards; then, I spent a few hours with my friend Sara working on an exciting new project we are itching to share with you. While it didn't feel like spring outside, I captured the spring spirit with this outfit!

I hope you all had a relaxing weekend, too! I'm linking up today with LeeAnn for Monday Morning Gossip. Go see what all of the other bloggers out there were up to this weekend!

  1. I have a wax stamp too! It makes me feel so fancy-pants.

  2. I love me some TJMaxx. I could easily get obsessive walking around there daily if I had the time and Monday. My ideal shopping day would start at TJ, move on into Marshals, and followup with some HomeGoods (yes. this company takes ALL of my money).
    oh, and I'd love to have a wax stamp!

  3. a few things...

    1) that wax stamp? need one asap.
    2) gold and white + stripes makes my heart sing.
    3) holy HUGE rock!

    Also, you deserve a medal. I am kindergarten teacher, turned housewife/occasional substitute teacher and those middle schoolers wear me flat out!

    Just found you through the link up! and oh so glad I did!

  4. I live in Athens! Did you go to the TJMaxx here? I went on a whim Friday and was thrilled with my loot.

    I spent most of my time in the beauty section and was shocked by all the brand names and quality items...for about a quarter of their original price.

  5. I just went to TJ Maxx yesterday and struck out for the 5th time. We used to have good stuff at our TJ but it is all just ugly and picked over. I see other bloggers with the cutest stuff from there. They obviously don't live in my town!!

  6. I'm more of a Ross girl and I do love the hunt but I really have to be in the mood for it.

    That heart blouse is so cute. Hurry and get it. Those places are hard to find stuff a 2nd time.

    Visiting from the link-up.

  7. I saw that same top at TJ Maxx and am also tempted to go back for it...haha.

  8. Sounds like a great weekend! Cannot wait to hear what you and Sara are scheming, too :) By the way, what TJ Maxx did you stop at?! Love to know where there are extra good ones :)

  9. What a great weekend! It was so good to see you and work on our "project!"
