weekend re-cap

This weekend was beautiful outside! It was a fall 65 degrees outside all weekend. Now there's a difference between summer 65 and fall 65. Summer 65 is still HOT. There's humidity and tons of bright sun. Fall 65 means there's always a breeze, zero humidity and less sun. More less fall 65 is way better! It was perfect! Also in honor of this gorgeous weather I made 2 scarves this weekend , but more on that later.
Most of this weekend was spent at home, relaxing, checking off my to-do list, and crafting. On Saturday however I drove the hour or so to my sisters and went to some amazing boutiques with her! It was absolutely perfect. I got to see shops I didn't know we had here and restaraunts I didn't know we had here. I bought my wedding hair piece for only 10$! I couldn't believe how cheap it was at this amazing store called charming charlies. I went to Anthropology for my very first time and took pictures like a tourist. I stopped in at Cheesecake Factory. We also managed to swing in to this gorgeous antique shop in the same parking lot as my sisters apartment that has never been open when I visited before. It was just a really good day!!!!
I have a bunch of pictures here to share with you.

Cheesecake factory which looks like a Russian Mosque.
It was for sure a great day and I hope we have more like it soon.

Other than that I just lazed around this weekend. Finished season 7 of house. Worked on my 30 Days Of Lists which I will share with you all every 7 days. I also have been playing along to another daily journaling class with my Bestie Renee and I will be sharing that with you as well.
It was perfect. This summer has been long, hard, and busy. It was just what I needed to have a weekend at home without anyone wanting or needing something from me. Sometime to myself to just recharge my batteries.
I hope you all had alot of rest and relaxation also!
