Weekend Wrap-Up

This weekend felt so short after the long weekend and short week we just had!
Aaron and I got a lot done though, and still found plenty of time to relax before heading back to work on Monday.

Thanks to the lovely Laura at Happily Ever Parker - I found the winter coat I've been looking for!
I needed something classic for work, that will last a long time, but wasn't "boring". I feel like so many coats are just...blah. Either cheap looking, or not the exact style I am looking for...
I really wanted to find something a bit different, but that wasn't too trendy either. Always asking too much aren't I? ;)

Anyway...Laura posted this gorgeous jacket a week or so ago and I was so excited! It was even from Target (which = no scary price tag)...I couldn't get there fast enough haha! I think I went out and tried it on the next day. I ended up getting it in black (for some reason the camel color didn't look as nice in person) but I ordered it offline because there were two coupon codes - 20% off and free shipping!

It has been so perfect - I'll post some outfit pictures with it soon :)



While ordering my jacket I stumbled across the CUTEST thermal pj set - so naturally, they made it into my shopping cart as well (it's ok, there was 20% off, remember? ;)
I've been eyeing the Victoria's Secret thermal pjs for awhile, but haven't bought them yet, as they are like $60 (really? for cotton pjs?)...so I was excited that these were only $20!


If you can't tell - those a little foxes all over the leggings.
And those awesome socks are from Forever 21 ;)


Date night consisted of pizza (shocker). We got Yellow Brick again and decided to try their new special for November called "Winner Winner Chicken Dinner".

Now, I was very skeptical, because this pizza consists of some odd ingredients...chicken (duh), corn, red onion, cranberries, mashed potatoes (as the "sauce") and then gravy after being baked. But I gave it a chance because some of their pizzas that sound the weirdest, actually taste the best.

This was AMAZING. Basically, it tasted like Thanksgiving dinner on a pizza. I couldn't shut up about it and we will probably have to order it again this weekend ;)


I also grabbed myself a treat at the grocery store - something that I love, but don't each too much.
Crusty french bread, brie, and blackberry jam.
Bake the cheese in the oven until warm and melty - add some jam - dip in pieces of crusty bread.
So simple and just DELICIOUS.
You need to try if you haven't!! It's the perfect snack for girls night, my friends and I always end up making it when we get together.


Finally, just wanted to share that I made a button for my blog - it's over on the side bar if anyone wants to "grab" it! I've added some buttons of my favorite daily reads too! :))

Have a great week!! xx
