Weekend Excitement and My First Award!

Happy Monday! Usually that sentence would be sarcastic because everyone knows that Mondays are the worst day of the week that ever existed, unless of course you didn't have a job that required your attendance. However, today is actually a very happy Monday!

This weekend, I signed my life away bought my very own fancy car! I've had a car since I was 15, but I've always paid cash for them. Notsomuch on this one. I had a good down payment from the sale of my red beauty and some savings, so it won't kill me every month. Plus, this was husband's dream car. A happy husband equals a happy wife. Little did I know it would be my dream car, too! I was so ready for something with 4 doors, a spot for the darg, and something with AWD. Keep in mind that I've been looking for over a year. I've been very picky and we've put a lot of thought into this decision. So what'd I finally decide on....


...an Acura MDX! She's perfect and barely used. She is yet to be named...any ideas? She has the shiniest gray body I ever did see. Almost looks bluish. Prih-freaking-tee.

Anyways, after the excitement that was 2.5 hours at the dealership, we spent the evening with Trav's family. The next morning, I had to take Trav to the airport because he is out of town for work this week. Sad face. So what's a girl to do?? Shop of course. 

I forgot to mention this whole weekend was spent in Salt Lake City since my small town 2 hours North does not know what an Acura dealership is. My small town does not know what good shopping is either. I pretty much picked the worst place to live...what kind of college town doesn't have a Target?! The shame.

Anyways, before making the drive home, I stopped at the Gateway Mall. It is a really cool outdoor mall full of fun stores. I got to go into two stores that I've never been in...Anthropologie and Z Gallerie. Amazing. I obviously couldn't afford anything at either place but it was so fun to just pet all the pretty things.

I finally jumped on the bandwagon and found mint and coral skinnies! They were at the most adorable store called Bohme Boutique. The best part? Buy one get one half off. Meant. To. Be. (that's what I'm trying to convince Trav, anyways). I can't wait to rock them. Perhaps my first fashion post? Haha, me, fashion post? Yeah right.

Needless to say, it was a great weekend. My bank account begs to differ. Now on to some more exciting stuff!

I received my first blog award! I was shocked, to say the least, but I'm so excited. The lovely Marianna over at Delightfully Dunn nominated me for the One Lovely Blog Award!
