Thanksgiving & Black Friday Recap

Normally for Thanksgiving, my family and I go to Dallas to visit my Mum's sister and her three kids. This year, we decided to mix it up and go to West Virginia for a little impromptu family reunion with my Daddy's family.  It was so good to see my presh Grandparent's whom I dearly love.  My Grandmother is basically my idol and I had so much fun following her around this weekend and helping her out.  I even got to look at her wedding photos and listen to her tell family stories! I may or may not have gotten weepy over a few of them.

But it was super fun to see the brother, stir up trouble with spend the weekend with Ensley, and visit with my little cousins!


On Black Friday, Ensley and I set out to Gabe's, an outlet store based in mostly the Northeast. Y'all. If you live near one, you have to go.  I nabbed a super cute picture frame for $1 that was featured on my DIY Post on Tuesday.  I also got pants from Urban Outfitters for $8 AND for the biggest steal of the weekend I got these cords in a cranberry shade FOR TEN DOLLARS. Y'all. I wish I could make this stuff up. They were twenty, but I found a small hole under the pocket that my tailor can repair when I get them hemmed and showed it to the lady at checkout and she took off ten dollars! I was only hoping for five! I normally hate bargaining and would normally never do something like that, but now I think I'll try it more often!

I also got this super cute faux-fur vest at T.J. Maxx!

I normally never go into places like T.J. Maxx but last friday I realized how much great stuff they have! I found Jonathan Adler products, gorgeous china patterns and discontinued Lilly perfume!

It was quite the lucky Black Friday for me! I also made the inaugural trip to Hobby Lobby!

Did y'all have any good Black Friday finds?

  1. Sounds like you had a wonderful Thanksgiving! I'm jealous of all of your super great finds & I love the fur vest!! Have a good weekend :)

  2. Our TJ Maxx never has stuff like that. They normally stock their selves with last winters AE clothing and off brands. I never go there because it is just a waste of my time!

    Congrats on the awesome deals and love the fur vest!
