Friday afternoon, our amazing company had a fish fry picnic. It was a little windy, but we had a great time and the food was awesome, as usual. They let us leave for the day after the picnic which is always nice. BFF & I headed home and got the keys to the storage unit we are sharing. It is nice to get all the extra boxes cleared out of the bedroom & living room! My place is really starting to look like home.
Saturday we drove to Canton, TX for First Monday Trade Days. I have never been before and was excited to go. It is a GIANT marketplace. They have antiques, crafts, food, boutique clothes...all sorts of things. We spent about 3-4 hours walking around the booths. I want my parents to come visit and go because I think they would love it. We each bought a few things, but my favorite is my new tree topper. Every year I top my Christmas tree with something different, usually a hat. I have had a cowboy hat, all sorts of different Santa hats, among other things. This is what I have for this year:
We drove back in the afternoon and even made it to church. I have to say that I'm really enjoying our new church. I think we have found our home, at least while we are downtown.
Sunday we went to the NASCAR race. We have had season tickets for several years, but didn't renew them this year. Neither of us keep up with it much anymore and we decided to spend the money elsewhere. This race our friends from the track weren't able to use their tickets and gave them to us. It was fun to be there, but without them there too, it was just okay. We ended up ducking out early for the first time ever, I think.
Now, for the fashion blog portion of the post. I was excited to see my new Gwynnie Bee items this morning. Since I get them delivered to work, I had to wear something of my own today, but more on that later. The first GB item I received was a dress. I was really sad because this dress was just bad. First, it was a wrinkled mess. I know that isn't really GB's fault as the material is just going to wrinkle, but who wants to have to iron or dry clean before you wear it? Anyway, I got past that to try it on and it didn't fit well either. The top fit well, although it was quite low cut. A cami would fix that though. But the hips were WAY too tight and the pockets stuck out.
The two other GB items of the week are shirts. One is definitely going to be worn, but I have questions on the other. Here it is...
Tonight we have a work dinner and then we are going to go see the Stars play. Should be fun! Here is the outfit I settled on:
