weekend snaps and rambles

I never shared any pictures on here from the Avett Brothers concert Brandon and I attended on Thursday night.  I'm such a fan now!  My favorite part of the concert was when they sang "Just a Closer Walk with Thee."  It was so raw & beautiful.

I've been loving wearing my hair wavy this past week.  My hair is kind of at an awkward length where it's not short, but not long, so giving it a slight curl is my way of giving it new life.  Blah! 

Isn't this watch pretty?  I spotted it while flipping through one of my two dozen magazines in my "need to read" pile.  I swear I will stop subscribing to magazines.  I just don't have the time these days.  While looking for this watch, I couldn't find this exact one, but I found one I like even more!  Isn't this one beautiful?  I'm so obsessed.

I went home this weekend to stay with my parents.  Mom and I had the best Saturday rummaging through consignment shops, walking around downtown, and grabbing lunch on the waterfront.
She treated me to this amazing lamp.
...and I treated myself to the score of the century, these Herend figurines.  I literally saved almost $550 off of retail price.  Brandon & I received Herend china for our wedding and since that time, I've heavily admired these little figurines.  Just could never justify the price.  Glad to finally have three of my own!
Books ...on books ...on books at M Home & Garden on Bay Street.

Another treat.  This amazeballs sunset.  No filter on this one, y'all.

Saturday night was filled with friends, pizza, card games, rides through the woods on a quail buggy, and tears from laughing so hard.  Brandon and I spent Sunday with my parents.  We enjoyed church, brunch, & lazy afternoon naps.  It really was a great weekend back "home."  Hard to top!

  1. Love the Movado watch combo of gold and silver!! I'm on the hunt for a new watch as well.

  2. Love your ring in the first picture. Beautiful sunset!

  3. What a fun weekend! Love the white china lamp and those figurines! Whenever I go to consignment shops I am always looking for little white china pieces/bowls - I love to use them for jewelry storage and little decor around the house :)
