Life Lately: The Weekend Edition

 
When five o'clock FINALLY rolled around on Friday, I couldn't be happier. This weekend was the most fun/jam packed weekend I've had in a VERY long time (last weekend I was sick--boo!) and was just what I needed.

Weekends filled with musicals, antique festivals, and shopping are the best. Don't let anyone tell you differently.

Friday evening we went to see my high school alma mater's production of Bye Bye Birdie. It's a favorite in the musical department. The kids were so talented, it ALMOST made me wish I was in high school again so I could be in it. Oh and my dad played a part in the quartet. 




It was supposed to rain ALL Saturday, but thankfully that wasn't the case. We went to the Covington Antique and Heritage Festival to support my cousin who had a booth set up for her jewelry! You can find her on Instagram @revieux_







Like how cute is all of it? Each piece is completely unique and one of kind. She buys old, antique pieces and remakes them into jewelry--um, can I have all the necklaces? Cousin discount perhaps?

I love love love walking around antique festivals. I've already mentioned that I'm an old soul, so it comes as no surprise that I love coming across things from another era! 




Saturday night my sister's and I had a sleepover to prepare for the Lilly for Target sale! We went around 10:30 PM to scope out our Target and barely got any sleep. IT WAS SO WORTH IT! We were at Target for about four hours and got almost everything we had our eyes on. You can see my entire haul here!







To top of my whirlwind of a weekend, we went to see Joseph and the Technicolor Dreamcoat Sunday night. My dad was in a local production when I was five or six and we've been obsessed ever since. I was pleasantly pleased and enjoyed every second of it! If you've never seen it before, I highly recommend it. The songs are so catchy and the story, a classic.






This morning I overslept, but I would say this weekend was one for the books and one that I won't soon forget. Don't you just love when you have a busy, fulfilling weekend? 
What were y'all up to this weekend?

    1. If being the key word. People might have started to return things so you could get lucky and snag a few items! I don't think they are restocking though :(
