1. I started the week off in Gatlinburg, TN with 40(ish) close friends. . . no, seriously. My husband's entire office goes on a team-building trip every Memorial Day weekend. They alternate each year between Vegas and Gatlinburg. We had to miss last year's trip because I was 37.5 weeks pregnant, so I was glad we got to go this year! Each trip has its own name (with a story behind it)--Project Honeybadger, Project Death Squirrel, Project Baby Koala--you get the picture. This year's trip was Project Prancing Unicorn, and it was awesome! This was the 1st time we spent the night away from Kane, but we survived:)
3. Victoria's Secret was having their 7/$26.50 panty sale, so of course I had to go replenish my panty drawer! I also had a $10 giftcard I had received from customer service, so that made the sale even better! For those of you who missed out, Victoria's Secret is now having their semi-annual sale! I tend to wait 'til the end of the sale when you can swoop in and get everything dirt cheap, but if you were an in-demand size, you may want to go on and check out what they have! There are several promo codes out there right now, including a free PINK beach blanket with any $50 PINK purchase (code: BEACHPARTY), so check out retailmenot.com to make sure you're saving as much as you can!
4. One of my good friends from law school, Brittany, hosted a craft night this week. There was no particular craft you had to make. . . you could just bring whatever you were working on. I helped Brittany make a fabulous wreath, and I worked on some flowers for a friend's wedding. Speaking of which, if you're getting married, or know someone who is, be sure to check back next week for an exciting giveaway. . .
5. Of course, you know I shopped the outlets while I was in Tennessee. You can read here about my shopping haul and here about my advice for outlet shopping. I picked up the shirt from J. Crew Factory and the necklace from LOFT Outlet. I picked up several things in this orange shade, but I really racked up in the periwinkle department. The skirt is one I scored at an end of season clearance sale at Maurices last summer.
|Shirt: J. Crew Factory, details here.|
Necklace: Loft Outlet, $5 + an extra 15% off.
