"And when I looked, the moon had turned to gold"

A big thank you to Southern Seersucker for the Butterfly award! She is such a sweetheart, and if you haven't had a chance to check out her blog, go right on over! Thanks again SS!

Today I went back to school shopping and found the most amazing Lilly purchases on CLEARANCE in TJ Maxx. I got a Lilly nightgown ($20) and a Lilly top ($30). Can you believe those great prices!

I believe it was a deal of a century! I also got an oxford cloth king pillow case with pearlized buttons. It is so adorable and will be the perfect addition to my bed. I also grabbed a great assortment of 21 themed presents for my big sorority sister because she will be turning 21 shortly after we return to school!

Here is another pictured of what I've snagged on various random trips to various stores!
L to R: Satin Headband (F21), Black Patent Heels (Target), Purple Grosgrain Headband (F21), Black Stretch headband with Satin Bow (F21), Hot pink flats (F21). I snagged all of this for under $40! Target was having a great shoe sale, and same with F21. I have been a sale seeking lady recently. Doesn't it feel so great to get a good deal!

Tomorrow night I will be doing something very different for me. I am camping. Yes you heard that right. CAMPING! Not the traditional kind of camping where you go in the middle of the woods and pitch a tent and make your food over an open fire. Our country club hosts a family campout every year. I have never been, but my sister has and raves about it. Camping isn't really my thing, but tomorrow night promises to be full of fun. The chef has prepared a full breakfast event the next morning filled with pancakes, waffles, eggs, quiche, french toast, fresh fruit, and tons more. Plus we will be sleeping out on the golf course in tents (air mattress as well!). They have a fire with s'mores set up, a bar, music, and lots more planned. I am so excited to spend time with my family because I will be going back to school in just one short week. I can't wait to report back with all of the details. It will be my first time "camping", although this is hardly roughing it. We will be able to change and brush our teeth and such in the Ladies Golf locker room which is so luxurious with a TV, couches, everything there that you may forget, and plenty of showers and such. We will also be nice and cozy becuase we are bringing air mattresses and bedding so we can sleep well, and my dad just purchased a new tent that sleeps up to 8 people!

Have a wonderful Friday!
Yours,
sCe

Thank you for sharing your writing and pics - very generous !!

I bet you are the most stylish gal on campus! Love your bargain finds!

And have fun camping! Sounds fantastic! I'm not a huge camping fan, and my oldest has asked about it. We live in a woods; therefore, I just open all of the windows on a nice evening and PRESTO...it's like we are camping (but in our own beds)! Ha!


Love, love all of your outfits in your earlier post! 2 cute!

I was just at the TJMaxx at the Waterfront yesterday on the hunt for Lilly and I found nothing! Do you go to a different one?

Also, you should visit the cupcakes place! Some people really like their cupcakes, other feel they're too dry. I work on Mondays, Wed, and Thurs.

I'm so jealous over your Lilly finds, that top is adorable! I need to go to Forever 21 before I leave as well, they have really inexpensive accessories! Camping realy isn't my thing either, but that sounds fun! Enjoy your night!!

Nikki Cogg said...

That is definitely my kind of camping!!

I have been to TJ Maxx time and time again and I can't seem to find any cute Lilly clothes! Occasionally they'll have some shoes but they're never in my size. I've seen one Lilly bikini.. maybe I'm just missing the boat and they're getting snagged up before I get there.

Have a great time with the fam! Sounds like a great event!

Jax said...
