I had the best birthday weekend! For starters – some girlfriends took me out for dinner Friday night and we had a great time and lots of laughs! Then on Saturday morning – I got up and headed out to meet up with some local mid-Tennessee bloggers! Some were old friends and some are now new friends!

I got to hang out with this great group of ladies that included Gina @ The Shabby Chic Cottage, Kristen @ Ahoy Graphics, Angie @ Country Chic Cottage, Tobi @ Dr. Baby Mama Drama, Jennifer @ Designs by Jennifer, and Deneen @ Dreaming in Color. We ate, talked blog tips and tricks, and all learned from each other. I learned I need to bring a camera and that I can’t make silly faces around Angie – she will post pictures!
We headed out to get our shop on next! Of course I scouted out a local Goodwill next to a Hobby Lobby on the way in! The Goodwill turned out to be a good stop for me! I got this adorable faux tin stamped mirror for $7.99. I am thinking a nice coat of white spray paint and a little rub and buff will make this into a beauty!
And then I picked up a few more frames for my gallery wall. These will just need a quick shot of silver spray paint and they will be ready to go up on the wall! The larger frames were just a $1.99 and the lil one was just 99 cents! Love it!
I had to scoot – but the other ladies stayed around to get the hook up on some fantastic burlap coffee bags! But I had to run some other errands and then get back to the house so I could gussy up for a date night with the hubby! We had dinner and then saw Water for Elephants. I loved the book so I was a little nervous that the movie wouldn’t end up as well – but I was not disappointed! I would highly recommend that book for your summer reading list if you haven’t picked it up yet.
So that was that! What about you guys? Get into anything fun this weekend? I wanna know!
