my mom and i spent the better half of yesterday doing a little shopping, for christmas and for life : )

we started at the little traveler in geneva, which is a great store with tons of awesome stuff that we used to go to when i was a kid. they had some of their christmas stuff out, so we bought a few ornaments and some additions to our christmas villages. by time we got to the "gourmet foods" room, our stomachs were both rumblin' so we spent an unusual amount of money on dip mixes, crackers, and other little goodies. 

after that, we went over to geneva commons, a little shopping area with anthropologie, h&m, pottery barn, charming charlie, loft, and other goodies like that.

then we hit hobby lobby. the closest hobby lobby to me in raleigh is about an hour and a half, so i only get to go to "the hob" when i'm home. which means that when i do go, i stock up on supplies for jewelry. i also got some great christmas decor at 50% off...which was awesome

we had a fairly [read: very] successful day of shopping, which is always a good day.

and today we're decorating for christmas

happy saturday!
