My Black Friday Haul

By on November 25, 2017

Hello Everyone! You may have seen my Instagram stories, but I wanted to share with you some of the items I purchased this Thanksgiving weekend.

I know a lot of people who are really excited about Black Friday and Cyber Monday (and it’s the only time they actually go shopping). I have a friend that actually has a list of all the deals and things she wants/has been eying. I don’t shop during this time, mainly because the things I tend to want normally aren’t on sale, but this year I found amazing deals on some of the things I like and presents for others.

A majority of my items were bought online, so I don’t have them in person yet but I’m looking forward to them in the mail!

Post Labor Day Weekend

By on September 4, 2017

If you’re in California, you know that this Labor Day weekend was fuming hot. Look at me all looking beach ready, but really I ended up staying in town.

I do love these wedges I got from Zappos though! I’ve been on the fence on purchasing them, not such a huge fan of wedges, but they were finally on sale!

Here are some similar swimsuits below (Asos is currently having a sale too!):

For Labor Day weekend, Tim and I hosted a sleepover. We were missing some people from our squad, but that’s okay Michael drove out to see us.

During the day we went wine tasting. We only went to two, but I really enjoyed going to Concannon Wineries. They had the library room open, and it’s a bit more exclusive than the normal wine tasting room and the wines served were more on the “high-end side. You can see in the background, no one is really there. But there were a couple of groups on the side.

Concannon has a nice picnic patio area open to the public, so we sat there for a while.

Or I sat on the tables and Tim and Michael laid on the grass. It may not look like it, but it was 110F out! It wasn’t that bad to be honest because there was still some wind blowing.

For dinner, we went to Wente. Wente is also a vineyard, but they have a restaurant that’s located 10 minutes away from them. I didn’t make a reservation, should have, but I wasn’t sure if everyone wanted a nice dinner or if we wanted to eat at home and make dinner together. They didn’t have any tables insides available unless we wanted to wait an hour (which really isn’t that bad), besides the tables outside and the bar. We sat at the bar.

I didn’t take a photo of our appetizers but I really loved the butter salad. The filet mignon tartare was good, but it wasn’t different from other tartare dishes I’ve had.

For my entrée, I got pork chops. The pork chops were cooked to perfection. It was the perfect crisp.

Here’s a photo of all of us with our entrées!

To end the night, we got dessert! My dessert was a giant cream puff. 😀

Here’s a photo of outside! At night, we went home and watched Scott Pilgrim and Constantine.

Tim gave me flowers Saturday morning, and I wanted to take a photo of them. I went outside, gathered some pebbles, put them in a heart shape, and took a snapshot. Getting my Instagram flatlays on! I update my Instagram a bit more, so follow me there if you want to see more updates.

What did you guys do this Labor Day weekend?

Adieu,

Elizabeth
