Weekend shenanigans

I had some errands to run and my mother wanted to make a trip to Michael’s for an artificial pumpkin. We went a little nuts in there, let me tell you! They have so much Halloween and Fall stuff at 40% off! Halloween is my favorite holiday. Always has been, even though anything with a mask FREAKS ME OUT. We found so many cute things, most of which I did not take pictures because I was too excited to focus.

However, I did control myself a liiiitle bit. I picked up this cute sign because… Hocus Pocus! We also fell in love with and bought a pumpkin that glows but I didn’t take a picture of it. Then there’s the one pictures below. I’m debating what to do with it. My office maybe? I don’t know. It just screamed my name and I had to have it. I’ll figure out where to hang it later.

I had to pick up a baby shower gift so off to Target we went. It’s like babies are EVERYWHERE right now. I love shopping for them though, honestly. There are so many cute little things I often have a hard time deciding what to buy. This time I picked up a Babies R Us gift card (at the new parent’s request) but I couldn’t help myself when I saw this little bitty fuzzy pink THING. I don’t even know what this animal is supposed to be but look at those little ears on the hood.

After getting what I needed and heading to the front of the store I spotted these socks with CATS on them and had to stop. I don’t normally wear this kind of sock so I stood and stared and debated for a while. I randomly wear trouser socks, even though I don’t like them, but for the most part of I’m wearing a shoe that requires socks (like boots), I just go with plain white crew socks. But these were too cute to pass up. Then I noticed the other pack on clearance and bam, into the buggy they went.

It turned out to be a rather random but eventful expedition. So here’s my question… what’s your favorite holiday?

Chocolate eclipse

I baked a cake on Sunday! Just a simple two layer dark chocolate from a box mix (Duncan Hines heeeey) with chocolate icing. It didn’t dawn on me at the time but hey look I kinda baked the moon of an eclipse! Anywaaaaay, I did that and some cleaning and I spent the rest of […]

Baby you’re a firework

A post shared by Amanda Graham (@shutterpecan) on Jul 3, 2017 at 4:59pm PDT It’s hard to believe it’s already July! Time just flies by faster and faster the older you get. I’m lucky that my office was closed both Monday and Tuesday for July 4th. On Monday we had some family over in the […]

This weekend there is a little travel bloggers conference happening in Huntsville Alabama. When I call it “little” I’m being somewhat sarcastic because it is far from little. The TBEX conference is around 500 people and occurs all over the world and showcases speakers from various aspects of travel, seminars, classes, and a plethora of […]
