Black Friday

It's beginning to look a lot like... Michigan! The sun has disappeared for the past couple of days and the temperatures are dropping. Michigan's winter weather is fast approaching. I got up super early (8 AM for me is super early!) to go shopping with Andrea. We went over to Grand Rapids, browsed the mall in 30 minutes, browsed Target in 2 minutes. The lines were insane. It was kind of discouraging and you had to make push and shove with a lot of crazy ladies with overflowing carts. So we made our shopping trip a little bit short, got some pumpkin spice lattes and she dropped me off home for a while. Brett, Peter and I went out to Target in our area (way less busy!) and I got tons of great deals on some gifts. I also stocked up on wrapping paper, bows and tags. The essentials! We also got a few gifts out of the way. We got home, decorated a bit of the apartment up and put up our mini-tree. (We don't get our real tree until Sunday!) and snapped a few pictures out in the 40 degree cold!

I just picked up this jacket today. It was only $30! I got a size up so I could get cozy inside of it. It has a red plaid inside and a huge furry hood. I love it. Perfect for these upcoming winter days. I always buy too many shoes and jackets. Except I'm stuck on my Jeffrey Campbell boots still (sorry, guys!) but they're too perfect with every outfit and I adore them to pieces. I'm also wearing them again tomorrow (I apologize ahead of time!) but man. Love them. This is also a skirt (that's way too big for me now.. I had to clip it in the back to keep it up) from a long time ago. I got it in Chicago two summers ago.. but I still love it!

I also ran to Hobby Lobby to pick up a bunch of new decorations for our tree and a few things for our upcoming Christmas party and it came to $125! I almost pooped, but oh well. At least I won't have to buy those things next year.. I can keep the same tree stuff for a while. Andrea and I met up again, went and did a little bit more shopping, I got a super cute thing to wear tomorrow and can't wait to post it.. and we went to see Whip It. It was my second time seeing it.. and I loved it just as much as the first time. She loved it too. I dropped her off to her car and drove back to Grand Rapids to eat at Steak 'N Shake with a ton of friends. It was a blast.. seriously. I loved every second of it. Wonderful day. Hope everyone had a great day too!

  1. You are so cute. I love the boots. I'm looking at lace-up boots right now.

  2. It sounds like you had one of the best days ever. I'm currently a tad jealous, since I wanted to do all those things too, but I was stuck at work for 11 hours.

    Your outfit is totally cute. I hope you enter it in the "Winter Outfit" contest for Weardrobe. It's seriously cute.

  3. i am really okay with you wearing your boots. they are spectacular.
