Husband’s playing a video game & my blogging Monday made him “die”. So I’m blogging from my phone for now. Excuse errors. I’ll go back tomorrow & fix as well as add photos.

After our successful midnight shopping, we were up again by 815a Friday morning. I grabbed a Diet Coke and a few pumpkin cookies before getting in the SUV w/ Mom & Nana to be at Victoria’s Ragpatch by 9a. We arrived at 9:02a so we missed standing in line but arrived in time to get a coupon each for 50% off any one regular price item! Almost the entire OIB store was 75% off clothes (including Lilly!) and 50% off accessories. We all scored OkaB’s for $7 (Mom & Nana got a few for themselves & I bought some for gifts for my aunts). I also bought a pair of Lilly linen pants for $22, a Lilly koozie, guest towels & coasters. I used my 50% off coupon on one of the brand new resort line peach chic polos. I love those buttons & can’t wait til its warm enough to wear.

After Vicki’s, we headed to Belk’s. We bought my grandfather loungewear, some jewelry for ourselves (like $17 for supposed to be real black & white pearl necklace/bracelet/earring set) & I found some tall flat dark brown boots that I loved! Only problem, didn’t have them in my size. A helpful salesperson discovered they had 4 at my home mall Belk & a super helpful Raleigh Belk employee let me purchase them over the phone & she found coupons to make them an even better price~ orginally $89 bought for $48!! I wore them today with brown leggings & took a self pic to show yall.
We went back home for lunch then back out to go to surf shop for my brother as well as pick up all the pandora jewelry {the saleslady there had wrapped them individually then held them for us}. We bought fresh off the boat grouper to have for dinner. We topped with blackening seasoning then baked and served with broccoli casserole & leftover sweet potato casserole.


Saturday we mostly chilled. Mom & I took a good walk on the beach. We celebrated Mom’s birthday {which was Sunday} and {very early} mine after lunch. Lowes Food cake was delicious! And we both opened some fun gifts! I received a purple v-neck from Loft, an orange sweater dress {that will look awesome w/ my boots!}, Lilly Christmas ornaments from my brother, & grandparents & parents put money towards my Nikon Christmas camera.


The girls went for mani/pedis early Sat afternoon. I chose RED opi polish anticipating it lookin’ great cheering on NCSU at the ACC championship 12/4. Sadly, the NCSU/MD did not go the way we hoped. Towards the end of the game we left & went to see the end of the OIB floatilla. The boats looked great & helped get me really in the festive Christmas mood.
