Once the cleaning and organizing was done it was time to head to the Wrentham Outlets. The thing about me and the outlets is I often only go to one store. The Loft. It is the best with amazing sales. The whole store was 40% off and I had a coupon for an additional 15% off. So I bought:
-2 pairs of black tights
-3 pairs of black trouser socks
-2 short dresses
-1 long maxi dress
-1 black blazer/jacket (adorable)
-1 lightweight sweater
-2 long sleeve shirts
-1 sleeveless shirt
That is A LOT of stuff. Do you want to know how much it all cost? I got all of that stuff for $198.08!!! I saved $170.36 which is almost as much as I spent. Amazing right!? And now you know why I only go to one store. After spending 200 bucks I was done spending!
Peyton and I went to Bed Bath and Beyond so I could pick up a new mattress pad. Peyton saw these and LOVED them which gave me a great idea for birthday or Christmas gift. Just need to get my hands on some coupons and I'll be heading back to pick those up for the girls.
We went to Olive Garden for dinner. Since Peyton's favorite food is pasta I figured this was a good choice. She loved the bread sticks (who doesn't?). Puppy came too and we all had a very nice dinner.
Treat for dessert. Treat has been on my "to do" list for a long time so I'm glad I finally made it there. It is in Needham aka Aly Raisman's hometown! This place is adorable. Not only to they have a huge selection of cupcakes (I choice the chocolate peanut butter overload) but they also have a make your own cupcake which is what Peyton did.
She got to choose her cake flavor, frosting flavor and 3 toppings - she choice sprinkles, gummy worms (or as she calls them jelly worms) and sour patch kids (who knew she liked these?!). She then got to
Oh and side note - I deserve a big gold medal for driving in Boston on Sept 1st aka move in day and not swearing at any other drivers or moving trucks. Believe me I wanted to MANY times. Seriously worse day ever to drive in and around Boston especially Brighton where every BC and BU student lives. Ugh!
New England Aquarium. I hadn't been there in a very long time so I was excited to go. It is very expensive (really overpriced for what you get in my opinion). It was fun though so I'm glad we did it! Right when we got there they were feeding the sea lions so we got to see a little "show." The trainer kept sending one of them over to the glass to "kiss" Peyton. It was super cute.
Oh and you might have noticed a new "friend." Peyton saw this seal and fell in love. Of course they make you exit through the gift shop so there is no way to avoid seeing all the cute stuffed animals. So Peyton got a white seal and we got Ella a gray one with black spots.
I hope the start to your Labor Day weekend was as exciting as mine! Don't worry there is more to come!
I'm linking up for Photo Fun Monday!
