Weekend Round Up + A New Look

Hi Friends! I hope y'all had a great weekend and a painless Monday. I had a glorious four day weekend back home in Savannah and I simply can't believe how fast the time went by. The Husband took a boys trip and dropped me off at my parent's house on Thursday night. It worked out perfectly! I really tried to take a break from social media and blogging while I was there so I could soak up every minute. That being said, I don't have many pictures to share but here's a glimpse of my weekend at home...

My mom and I did quite a bit of shopping. Saint Patrick's Day is just a few short weeks away and we were on a mission to stock up on any and everything green! 

An abundance of Saint Patrick's Day decorations at the local pharmacy. I wanted it all! I ended up purchasing the green wristlet on the top left. Mom got one too. We will we all set for the parade!

Friday night after dinner, my parent's and I had a little coffee date. The market just down the street from the house has the best coffee ever...and LOTS of creamers to choose from!

Naturally, I fell in love with another creamer and had to make a stop by the grocery the following day to pick up a bottle of my own. So good! If you haven't tried the Sweet Cream by Cold Stone, you must! 
It's great in hot tea too.

Saturday and Sunday was full of shopping adventures. 
We hit the malls, HomeGoods and Target. So much fun!

Here are a few of my finds...I picked up this shirt from the Gap {shop similar option here} and I can't wait to wear it! Bad iphone pic but it's navy and green.

Look at all the cute Dollar Spot finds at Target! I picked up a few spools of ribbon. 
I mean, how could I not? I see lots of DIY's in my future...

And you know that no Weekend Round Up would be complete without a few food pics!
We noshed on some Mexican delights after a long day of shopping. Dad was so glad he didn't join us. We shopped till we dropped and shut the malls down two nights in a row!

Sangria to kick start Mom's birthday celebration. It was homemade and oh-so good! 

I had the delicious fish tacos. One of my favorites! 

Sunday night we got home just in time to catch the end of the Oscars. What did you think of the fashion? I loved Charlize Theron, Jane Fonda and Naomi Watts. All of them were just stunning! 

Last but not least, I was able to finalize my new blog design with Aubrey and she got everything installed last night just in time for today's post! What do you think? I'm still tying up a few loose ends but I couldn't be more thrilled and I hope you love it just as much as I do! 
Thank you, Aubrey. You are wonderful! 

Well, there you have my weekend. Before I knew it, Monday evening was here and it was time to pack my things. The drive back to Atlanta was sad but it was good to see The Husband and Saint Patrick's Day in Savannah will be here soon! 

What did you do this weekend? I hope it was a good one!
