Garage Sale Shopping Sans the Fanny Pack

It’s a gorgeous Sunday, which means windows opened, coffee brewed and garage sale shopping galore!
Garage sale shopping and coffee

Yes, garage sale shopping- from my comfy bed. It is great! I have NEVER been a garage sale shopper; I hate digging for things and get bored easily. But, I have recently discovered Facebook garage sale groups and have now become addicted and maybe on the verge of a hoarder. I’m also obsessed with constantly finding and adding new swanky and random things to my home, so I like really can not stay off of these sites. ( gets the best of me, too.) So, I must spotlight a few of my exciting finds, below!

You can search for a garage sale group near you by searching ‘neighborhood name’ yard sale or ‘neighborhood name’ garage sale group in Facebook. Plus-side, these groups will probably be more interesting than your high school acquaintances’ status updates!




Birthday, Birthweek, Birthmonth…

Everyone knows that girls’ birthdays typically last about a month. I settled for the week, I promise! I guess since I am just now blogging about it, we’ll consider it the month…

My birthday celebrations started the weekend prior in Uptown for two hometown friends’ birthday celebration. (They celebrate their birthdays together every year, and I crash theirs and celebrate mine with them every year. It’s a tradition.) Being with friends from your home town means going places you went when you were 21. Trophy Room (yup, the bar with the mechanical bull) and The MAT. If you kick ass as much as I do at karaoke, you’ll love The MAT.


We are twins. We were born on the same day.

The week proceeded with an amaze-fest family cook out, local boutique shopping at Flirt, Milk & Honey and Brown Eyed Girl, lots of wine and dinner on the roof top patio of Terilli’s, my favorite red velvet cake from Bread Winners and Kona Grill and an always unforgettable night out on the town with my friends.

My actual birthday celebration started at Uptown’s newest Mexi restaurant and bar, Pozo Mercado, for dinner and drinks. The food was great, drinks were delish and the place had a cool vibe. Pozo is owned by the same people that own Sfuzzi and Standard Pour, both some of my fav Uptown spots. The night took us to Sfuzzi, Sunset Lounge and embarrassingly enough… LeVu. I’m not a clubber, so thank God we got there close to closing time.

I anticipate my next birthday being a little more low key, but still a week long. 🙂
