happy friday oops, saturday!!  a few weeks ago i had the amazing pleasure of a weekend getaway at Freshfields Village with some of my fave bloggin babes.  ok, so honestly, i was most excited for the big bed and room service, but that's just because i share a bed with 3 kiddos and a giant husband, so any promise of a good night sleep in a quiet room with clean sheets sounds like heaven to me.  literally, i walked into a rustic lodge/dream cabin and i cannot believe i didn't take a single picture of Andell Inn's amazing lobby.  fur throws, tufted couches, prince edwards chairs and even a fireplace, i literally need this place to be my home.  first stop was a little pamper sesh at urban nirvana and SHOCKER!  i was already running late.  in case you didn't know this about me, i tend to run on "tara time" aka 10 minutes late means i'm technically early so i try to trick myself and write my appointments down 30 minutes earlier than the actual schedule time, but i still struggle.  and then of course, i was hangin with Chlo, who runs on an even later time schedule than me, so together we basically miss everything.  i got this amazing side braid/fish tail and a serious makeover on my face.  i really need someone to do this to my face everyday, i don't know how they make me look so glam.  off to the important stuff, Shopping!!  it was so fun to get in a little girl time and retail therapy and Maverick was loving all the attention.  i, being the diva that i am, ran back to my room for a quick outfit change before we finished out the night.  i had planned on changing earlier, but like i said, i was running late and i really didn't want to take this maxi off because it's basically pjs its so comfortable.  ok, speaking of pjs, how adorable is Maverick in his monkey jammies??  this whole little setup it so adorable and his face is EVERYTHING!  he was in love with Bethany aka B Soup, i should've recorded their little flirt session.

 we ended the night with an ice cream social, and being the yank that i am, i had to have my root bear float!  actually we call it soda, but the southerners consider soda pop so it's all very confusing.  you know we had to arrange our ice cream just right for that perfect insta-pic ;)  hubby finally made it and we enjoyed our big ole quiet room and an amazing breakfast in bed.  i think i ate every carb known to man.  i took advantage of the extra hands and spent the afternoon hitting up the shops that i missed the night before and grabbed a few goodies for the boys from Wonder Works.  it was such a great weekend.  special thanks to Andell Inn and Freshfields Village for having us!!  i hope you all have a wonderful 3 day weekend!!!
