Thrifty Tuesday ~ Scarfs

To follow last week's Thrifty Tuesday, I decided to focus on one of my favorite fall accessories---the scarf! Wearing a scarf is an easy way to dress an outfit up, dress it down, or even keep warm! Who would have guessed?? ;)

Here are some great scarfs...all under $20!

Fall Treats ~ Wreaths

This weekend I decided that it was time to bring out the fall decorations.....except I couldn't decide on which decorations I wanted to use! I don't like to use Halloween themes because that doesn't last through November. I also don't like to use anything that's too gaudy, anything that is too large, and I definitely don't like a million little decorations all around our (already small) apartment.

After all of the restrictions I set it looks like I'll probably just hang a wreath this year. 
Now for the fun part--picking one out :)

I think this one is my favorite!

Week and Weekend Recap!

Isn't today beautiful? The weather this weekend has been great--a little bit of chill but not to cool just yet :)

This past week I got to see Alan Jackson and Eric Church for free in Nashville. I heard about it last minute and a few friends meet up with Ryan and I to take advantage of a great time! Just for the record, I've wanted to see Alan Jackson for as long as I could remember. Like, really really badly. Last October Ryan surprised me with tickets for my birthday to see him in Cincy, but AJ was sick and ended up canceling the show with no makeup date. It was a very sad day for needless to say, when I found out about this free concert I was pumped! It feels good to mark something off of my bucket list!

The boy and I at the concert. We had an amazing time!

Alan Jackson!!
Friday night was spent grocery shopping and just hangout out around the house. We knew that Saturday would be a long day so we just took it easy. We started Saturday off by getting in the car and heading east. We visited my Dad and his family as well as doing some work for my company in that area. We had dinner in Nashville that night with Ryan parents and then made it back home. Shew, traveling all around the state, all in one day, is exhausting! We definitely slept in this morning :)

My Dad and I
 Two of our friends are getting married this coming Spring and the bride, Kim, wanted to visit the bridal show here in Murfressboro so we met up this afternoon and strolled through the vendors. And we ate cake samples, naturally :) It was fun to taste the cakes, but man can those vendors jump at you! Some where really nice and some where really...different. I'm glad I wasn't the one with the Bride name tag on. For once ;) hahaha

After the show I stopped by one of the shopping centers around town and I'm lucky I did! I went to Gap, which I never do, and I found a bunch of stuff I was looking for a great prices! I always add some new basics (tees, long sleeve tees, thin sweaters) to my wardrobe when the fall starts...I found great plain (layering) tees for $9.97 with an additional 30% off! That's close to $6 a piece--you can't beat that! I also got a great new pair of dark wash skinny jeans for $6 as well as a great shirt for the UofL game next weekend. Finding great deals while shopping puts me in a great mood ever time! 

This is the shirt I bought to support my
team--it's red in person, not pink!
 It was house cleaning and cooking for the rest of the afternoon. I made some great freezable burritos for lunch this week. Nothing like getting all of the big stuff out of the way so the rest of the evening can be spent relaxing and watching the new season of Kendra! football with the boy :)

Thrifty Tuesday ~ Target

With cool weather right around the corner I find myself daydreaming of new fall sweaters, boots, scarfs and lots of new browns, greens, and creams!

Of course I can't shop as much as I want to! BUT when I do shop I try to make it as thrifty as possible so I can get as many new pieces as possible. I've been doing some window shopping are my favorite finds from Target. None of these items is over $50 so you could easily get a few things and not break the bank!
$12.99 Target.comYes, please!!




$9.99 Target.comGreat for layering!
$17.99 Target.comWhat a cute lounging sweatshirt :)
$24.99 Target.comWith tights and boots, of course: )
$12.99 Target.comWith black tights and a great sweater,
this could be perfect for work or play!

Happy Shopping! :)
