Friday, I took the day off to extend the weekend even longer. The afternoon was filled with errands and then I made a stop at Target and got some cute things for summer (I’ll share them tomorrow). Geof met me at Alfredo’s for dinner and then I went back out to yet another Target. When I got home he had a surprise waiting for me from a place I’ve been dying to try near his job called Dixie Picnic. They make everything fresh and simple. One of their signature items is called “Upcakes” and it’s basically like an upside down cupcake. I tried one right away and it tasted like something my grandmother would have made. They were completely homemade from the cake to the frosting and absolutely delicious. We ended up staying in for the evening and made it a nice and peaceful night at home.
Saturday, I somehow convinced Geof to go with me to the outlets and he actually came along and didn’t complain. The outlets opened 2 years ago and it was the first time that we have ever made the trip. They’re close to Geof’s old job and he showed me around his old stomping grounds and took me to lunch at The Trappe Tavern. They’re famous for their chili, so I had to get some even though it was hot out. We finally made it to the outlets and it was very crowded. The deals couldn’t be beat though. We went to Kate Spade and I got a bag and necklace both of which I fell in love with from Blair’s blog. I was ridiculously happy when the total tab was under $125 for everything. Geof and I got a few things at J.Crew and then I got some tops from Ann Taylor Loft. We did a little bit of browsing around and headed for home. On our way back, we stopped at Macy’s and I got some Lipstick and Lipglass from the new MAC “To The Beach” collection and then we got some frosty beverages for the Flyers game that night. I got some sort of Strawberry Wheat beer, but it was a little heavy for me. We watched the Flyers lose and called it a night. I wasn’t that broken up about it since I’m not a big hockey fan.

I love these flip flops from J.Crew. They have little pink seahorses on them! The bib necklace was on clearance and I think it will look really cute with a plain tank. The pearls are classic.

Sunday, we got my mom and went to a BBQ at my aunt and uncle’s house. It was nice to see everyone and catch up with the family. The weather was gorgeous and all of my little cousins were playing in the pool. I was tempted to get in a few times. Instead, Geof and I played a few games of corn hole, ate way too much food and headed home early in the evening. We ended up staying in and watching a few season finales of our favorite shows. I was shocked at how Gossip Girl ended and I cannot wait for the next season of How I Met Your Mother.

Playing "corn hole"
Monday, we spent the entire day at the pool. It was over 90 degrees outside, so we were in the water most of the day. It felt so refreshing and it was fun to go down the slide a few times, jump off the dive and splash around. We also got to catch up with our pool crew and we cannot wait for beach volleyball season to start up later in June. When we came home, Geof made tacos for dinner and we watched the Flyers game again.
We had a great weekend and I hope that you did too!
