Happy Monday, friends! How was your weekend?
I am linking up with Tanya from The Other Side of the Road for this blog post. I had such a great weekend! I got the weekend started off by making some chicken and rice soup—my stepmom made some for me when I was sick two weeks ago and it tasted so good to me. I tried my best to make it like hers and it turned out so good. Drew and I ate it all weekend. Todd worked Friday night and all the boys were in and out with friends—when I finally went to bed, look who joined me.
It is as cold as the frozen tundra in the upstairs of our home, so yes, I did cover little Chip up with a blanket. He was sound asleep when Todd came home and moved him to Jonah's room.
On Saturday, my mom and Trish picked me up and we went into Memphis to shop at some beautiful boutiques that were all decked out for Christmas. I did some Christmas shopping and checked some more gifts off the list of people that I buy for.
We had so much fun together and I haven't seen them in over two weeks! I love days like that—being together, cool weather so we don't get hot having to wear face masks and spending quality time together—these are a few of my favorite things.
I took these pictures at our first stop, a beautiful home decorating store called Le Fleur—they specialize in flowers and they're also a gift shop. I bought a gift for my best friend and I bought some pine scented room spray for me.
Have I ever shared with you my love of tea towels? I love them and use them all the time.
After this stop, we ate lunch at Panera (French onion soup!), then we went to a place called Social. Again—I bought myself two little things and my sister bought me my birthday gift that I came home and hung.
