A Lovely Weekend Getaway!
Hello friends and Happy February! I can't believe January is gone already.
I've was out of town this weekend and haven't had a chance to visit and comment on your blogs. I had a wonderful weekend in Tallahassee with my beautiful daughter, Miranda. The following photos were all taken with our phones so sorry they're not the best. I drove up early Saturday morning and we set out for Thomasville, Georgia. It's just a short drive from Tallahassee. We visited there last March (post here) and had a great time, so we decided another trip was in order. Once again, we had a lovely day. The weather was beautiful, a little chilly in the shade, but just gorgeous. As soon as we parked and started walking, I spotted this cool old Studebaker. It looks like it belongs there on that brick paved street!
There are so many quaint little shops to meander in and out of. I love looking a the storefront window displays. What a fun job this would be! This was a little village made out of painted and decorated cardboard boxes. So cute...:)
Huge mosaic flower pots adorn the sidewalks. They are so colorful!
Another cute and clever window display. This snowman and the "snow" hanging behind him is made from cotton. Sorry about the reflection.
We ate lunch at Jonah's again and it was just as delicious as last time!
The waitress offered to take our picture...:)
After lunch, we walked around a bit more. Last year we almost went into Smallcakes, a cupcakery but ended up not going in. This year we did! Check out the cupcakes! And look at the chalkboard menu in the background....so colorful!
The cupcakes are huge!
The place is decorated so cute...mostly pink and white, but so colorful. I loved this table made from a door and the bench made from an old headboard!
Here's Miranda holding out cupcake box.
And here's what we picked! She got peanut butter cup and I chose cookies and cream. We didn't end up eating them until this morning, but they were amazingly delicious!
A little more walking and we stumbled upon the cutest shop called the Fuzzy Goat. I was wondering what kind of shop it could be and then I noticed the knitting needles on the sign. We crossed the street so we could go in and have a look around.
I am not skilled in the knitting or crocheting department, but have often wished I was. Seeing all the beautiful yarns, I now really wish I knew how!
The window was too cute! It's hard to see, but that's a goat riding a bicycle. There were heart shaped yarn balls in the bike basket...so cute!
We enjoyed riding around looking at some of the beautiful old houses after that and then we headed back to Tally. We stopped by the Goodwill where I only purchased 2 items....neither of which I am keeping. One is for the hubby and one is a little makeover project for my sister. We went to a few stores...my favorite being World Market. I bought a couple items for myself over the weekend. I bought the little ceramic milk bottle in Thomasville. I thought it was the cutest thing! It's holding my paper straws in the coffee station now.
I also bought a mug tree at World Market. I've been wanting one for a while now and finally bought one. This was the last one they had! It was only $14.99 and I had a 15% off coupon to use too!
I bought three of these little spice containers. They are magnetic on the back.
I also bought this beautiful top. It is ivory colored lace and a sheer fabric. Miranda bought one just like it but in a jade color.
I love the pattern of the lace and I just love World Market. They have such unique items and such a variety of things.
That's about all I bought...the only things worth sharing anyway. We went to a movie while I was there too.....Black Or White. We really liked it.
We hung out at her apartment for the remainder of the evening and most of this morning. We left to go get some lunch and brought it back to her place to eat. I left shortly after. I always have a wonderful time in Tallahassee, but any time I get to spend with my beautiful daughter is wonderful. It wouldn't matter where we were or what we did! Time spent with those we love the most is time well spent. Thanks for stopping by and joining me on my little weekend getaway. I hope you had a lovely weekend and I hope the upcoming week is as well.
Until next time.....
