Weekending + 2 month Countdown

This post may contain affiliate links. Purchasing through them help support this website.
Welcome back Monday.  Not going to lie I could have had one more day.  This weekend went by in a complete blur.  It literally felt like I was just leaving work on Friday and now I’m settling in tonight to recap.  I got so much accomplished which is probably why it flew by!  Linking up with Biana and Meghan.

I started off my weekend with this email.  Finally done with all my grad school loans.  Such an amazing feeling.

Second.  I have been loving all these “cold” weather outfits (I use the word loosely down in FL).

Obsessed with the grey open front coat | Chestnut color | Winter White Amazing Blazer | Blush so gorgeous! |  Leg warmers | Toms Desert Booties |  Tall Grey Boots

Third.  Publix peeps guess what is BOGO??

Friday night we went to our local sushi place.  I honestly could eat this every night.

We bring our own hot sauce.  This is my favorite over Sriracha.  Sambal I highly recommend it!  I met Mark there and he texted me a reminder to bring it I was like listen……got this handled already.

Saturday my mother came up and we went to my first alteration/fitting appointment.  In all honesty I didn’t have all my parts so I felt like it was kind of a bust but my mother was very happy with the seamstress (aka Martha was very happy) so then I was on a mission this weekend to finalize the rest of the Wedding details.  This included my shoes and the appropriate saran wrap undergarment.  Check and check.  Oh my shoes are amazing I can’t wait for y’all to see them!  They make me all giddy just thinking about them!
My mother came bearing gifts (kindly ignore the moving mess and half deflated bridal balloon).

Then I single handily moved a large glass cabinet.  I was pretty proud of myself.  I cracked up to my mother as we hauled it into her SUV and exclaimed “I mean honestly how big my condo complex is and not one guy happened to walk by!!”  It’s all good Barre has given me some serious upper body strength right?

After she so graciously was loaded down with furniture from my condo it was ready for some holiday parties.  Next time just tell me to stick to non alcoholic beverages.  Multiple red wines from unknown sources didn’t start my Sunday out so great.

Necklace sold out similar here and here | Black Boots
Proved that this braid was not a fluke.  Such a pretty holiday style!

Sunday was spent packing and more packing.  I like my system.  Seriously how cute are these little notes from the Target dollar bin?!?!?

It is all getting very real y’all.  Once I finally cold turkey shut off Netflix (aka gilmore girls) and got to work I got a ton accomplished.  My condo is starting to sound very echoey……

Finally if you follow me on Instagram you may have seen this already.  Look at this little gem I found while packing.  Seriously look at how far we have come.  That was my phone in Grad school.  I loved that phone.  I really wished it turned on…..I’m sure there were some doozie texts in there that took a million years to write when you had to press each key 4 times for one letter.

How was your weekend?  Did you have a million  holiday parties?  Isn’t it so fun to bust out the holiday sparkle?!  Check back tomorrow for my things I’m Digging lately!  xoxoxo

Follow me on!

  20. Girl- that braid is amazing!!! I have to try, but will probably fail because I suck miserably at braids. Ps.

  39. Emily says:

    That sushi looks amazing! That’s so funny you bring your own hot sauce but it’s actually genius and I should start doing that as well. Love the braid #nailedit and all the FL winter outfits! I used to have a razor as well can still hear that techno-like ringtone.

  40. Ok that hair is amazing, I think we have semi-similar hair types so I hope it turns out as well when I try it out! Tyler went for “boys night” sushi on Friday and I can’t tell you how much I wish he had brought me some home yours looks sooo good. Congrats for paying off your student loan – what a relief right!

    Congrats on paying off your loan, that is a great accomplishment!

    OMG, Talenti is BOGO?? This is very bad and I will probably be going to Publix tonight…

    LOL at your old phone! I had the Pink Razr too, loved that phone!

  44. Girl you DID get a lot done this weekend! Congrats on paying off your student loans! I pray the day we pay off my hubby’s gets here soon. Love the braid. Gorg! And that phone. Oh my. We finally got rid of our old ones a few months ago. How did we ever function. :)

  45. This weekend really was a blur. I demand a recount on days! I think we were missing one! Look how cute you are in all of your outfits! And that sushi…..that sushi looks amazing!

    The phone throwbacks crack me up. I shared all my old ones awhile back…well minus the Nokia ones because those were REALLY old! Those were the days!

  46. Bahahah… I can’t believe you bring your own shit to restaurants. Wait. I can! ;P

  47. Jen says:

    Congrats on the two month countdown! I’m officially craving sushi now! Oh, and so jealous of your braiding abilities.

    xo, Jen

  48. alyssa says:

    That braid, girl! So cute. OMG and I just went grocery shopping tonight and picked up that peppermint bark Talenti and I seriously thought of you as I put it in my cart, haha! I’m going to bust it out right now…

  49. J Trogstad says:

    What a fun post. Congrats on paying off your loan!! yay!

  50. OMG, paying off your grad school loans must feel amazing. I’ve still got a loooong way to go. Hopefully one day before I retire. I’m really hoping that one day there will be a giant forgiveness bill for people who’ve been paying for a long a$$ time.

    I’ve also been seriously contemplating how I can get away with leggings and boots to work.

  51. Kay R. says:

    I could eat sushi every night as well and that platter looks so awesome!! Also congrats on the loan being paid off that deserves a bloody drink!

  52. WOOOOHOOOOOOOOOO to the student loan payoff! I’ll drink to that! Oh wait… I can’t. ;) Love all the “cold” weather outfits. Add a couple layers onto that and that’s me over here all bundled up as if I live in anarticia. Cant wait to see what wedding shoes you have picked out! Love your hair braided like that! I wish I could do that! I’m totally incompetent when it comes to braiding my own hair :) I totally had the pink razor too. And it was probably the biggest POS phone I ever owned. I had to get a new one every other week. But it was soooo cooooool! :)
