Labor Day Weekend Update!

Oh, Long weekends.. I love you.
However, you make it even harder to go to work this week.
Here are some of the highlights from this weekend!

Friday was the Baltimore Grand Prix practice. The grand prix is such a cool event, especially for Chris who is a huge racing fan. My office is literally on the race course so it's really neat to see a place I go almost every day transformed into a race track!

Oh, Chris got a new car. no big deal. 
just kidding... 

I'm sad to report that I didn't meet Arie (from the Bachelorette, in case you've been living under a rock). I looked around, I swear! 
I had it all planned out. I would start talking to him about the Bachelorette, etc etc, then he would let Chris drive his car around the race track and I would be the BEST girlfriend ever.
Besides that disappointment, we had fun! And I failed to get a picture of the two of us.

The rest of the weekend was spent relaxing, cleaning, shopping, and seeing some of the family.

We went to Old Town Ellicott City, which is about 10 minutes away. I love this little city- it's so pretty and full of small shops, antique stores, and cute little restaurants. There are also paths along a creek so we took a walk one morning.

I love this little coffee shop. I ordered a Pumpkin spice latte, which might have even been as good as the Starbucks version!

I finally bought a new purse. It's been a while... and I love it!

I also tried this. It's like an adult push pop = AMAZING.

Then... I forgot to take any more pictures.

A couple blog notes... 
I changed some of my sponsorship options. Check out my sponsor page for details!
I'm excited to add medium ad's (mostly because  I wanted to give a spot away in my upcoming giveaway!) 
Yeah, I guess I just spoiled that one. I can't keep anything exciting to myself.

Niki @ Glossy Blonde is hosting a huge giveaway! Let's just say there's a lot of jewels up for grabs... you know you want to!
