I Heart Shopping!!!!!!!

Did I mention that I was excited about going shopping while I was in Atlanta?? It was an understatement. I woke up this morning at 5:30am in anticipation!! Well, it was the anticipation as well as the fact that sleeping until 5:30am was like sleeping until 11:30am on my body's time! I was ready to go hours before our 9:00am departure time! The outlets are about 45 minutes away from my parent's house and we were there by 10 this morning. The stores we hit up all morning included Brooks Brothers, Ann Taylor, JCrew, Polo, Coach, Pottery Barn. Restoration Hardware, Williams-Sonoma, and Gap. Good god I got a lot of stuff! I got some really good deals and literally everything I got I needed. You can see in the picture above that I laid out all my new purchases on my bed as soon as I got home. I love all my stuff and I am so excited about it. Furthermore, I would just like to state for the record that I bought all my normal sizes, everything fit, and I do NOT, in any way, look pregnant!! I can guarantee it!! I still have to get some new shoes ect but at least I found a dress to wear to my sister's bridesmaid's luncheon. It is the only thing that I took an up close picture of so y'all can see. I love the color!! It is from Ann Taylor.It was a very fun day with my mom and sister. I had a great time shopping with them. My sister even found her nightstand at Pottery Barn for MUCH less than normal AND she was able to buy 10 of her fine china salad plates for much less than where she is registered! It was a good shopping day for all!! After shopping we swung by 5 Guys for burgers before heading back to Atlanta. Man, I totally forgot how awesome that place is!! Almost as good as my incredible steak at Outback last night! Does anyone else think that they put crack in those steaks?? I can't get enough of them! I think it is more likely that the crack might also be known as BUTTER. Yum.

After getting back home my mom and I headed to the alterations place to drop off my bridesmaid dress and then go to the grocery store. Tonight my mom is making dinner and I can't wait! Also, guess who is here?? My baby cousin Thomas!! I can't believe how big he has gotten! He is currently taking a nap but as soon as he gets up I will get my picture taken with him to post! He is to die for cute, even if he did spit up on me TWICE!

My mom and I settled in to watch Days of Our Lives while Thomas napped but unfortunately my mom has not been exaggerating when she says that she is 3 weeks behind on this show!! There is no way that she is ever going to catch up at this rate!

I have no HUGE plans for tomorrow during the day. I have to get my sister a gift for her lingerie party tomorrow night. We are having her bachelorette party tomorrow night and I am very excited about the restaurant where we are eating (does anyone see a common theme of "eating" here?? I better be careful or else I might look pregnant)!! It should be a lot of fun. I'll definitely post beforehand though. I'm off to wait for Baby Thomas to wake up from his nap!! I really really miss my husband but this busy day went by quickly. Only 6 days until he gets here!!

Haha!! I think it's safe to say you are glad to be back in the States??

I hope you have an empty (well, full once you put all of your new loot in it!) suitcase to take back :)
