Friday, my mom, Joe Joe and I started the day off at Whole Foods - and man, do I love that place! I picked up a few snacks to take on my "Girls Trip" to Mentone that evening and then we headed to do some shopping. We started off at The Summit and ended the day at the sidewalk sales at Mountain Brook Village. There were some great deals to be had. I found some fabulous things for my Office Renovation project (check it out here and here) and picked up some clothes and accessories along the way too :)
And making the day even better was getting to enjoy lunch with a dear friend of mine, Leighton, at O'Carrs. She introduced me to their chicken salad, and it was wonderful. I wish I had been able to bring some home...yum! Leighton and I are always able to catch up where we left off, and that is what makes a friendship so special!
Friday evening, I headed off to Mentone, AL to stay at a mountain lodge with my best friends from college. We spent the weekend relaxing, snacking on yummy food and catching up for hours on end...just like old times! Saturday morning we indulged in a wonderful breakfast buffet at The Mountain Inn Restaurant at DeSoto State Park and ended the day with dinner at a local spot, Wildflower Cafe. The atmosphere was so quaint, and the food was delicious!

This morning, I met my mom and Joe Joe back in Birmingham, did a little more shopping and headed back to Jackson to celebrate my father-in-law's birthday. The weekend was just perfect! Oh, and Collin went to the Mize, MS Watermelon Festival while I was away with his family and took this fabulous photo! Oh how I love watermelon - it's my favorite!!
How was your weekend?!? Happy Monday!
