On day two of vacation, I didn’t make it to Austin. Oops!! I stayed down in Kyle (where my family lives) and San Marcos. On Saturday morning, we went to my cousin’s son’s T-ball game.
Run!!!!!! I have to say my cousin’s son, Austin (they named him that before they moved to TX), is pretty awesome! He’s super talkative which I loved. I haven’t seen him in a few months, so I figured he’d be shy at first. But he was a chatterbug the whole time I saw him. We’re BFF’s.
After the game, my aunt Jill and I went to San Marcos to hit up the outlet malls!!!! They have two big outlet malls in San Marcos, which I couldn’t pass up. We actually only made it to 1 of the malls before I was
Some of my purchases:
Skirt from the Gap (I got 2 shirts & a sweater from Ann Taylor Loft too that I didn’t photograph.)
These cute coffee dessert plates. I’m saving them to display in my new kitchen for whenever I move (next April hopefully!). It will be my design inspiration piece.
Fall place mats from Marshall’s
Halloween cookie cutters, which I’m 100% sure I won’t use before Halloween. But it will be fun to forget about them and then find them again next year when I unpack Halloween decorations. Surprise!! I should use the fall leaf cookie cutter before Thanksgiving though! That’s a good tangible goal for me.
Toasted coconut body wash & lemon lotion….which I needed like a hole in the head, but I’m a girl and couldn’t resist.
Blue wallet from Fossil and an owl wallet from Marshall’s. When I checked out at Marshall’s, the cashier asked me if I saw the panda wallet too. I said, yes I did…but owls are more awesome, first off. And secondly, at 32 years old I’m already too old for this owl wallet probably…and I’m DEFINITELY too old for a panda wallet.
I do get compliments on my owl wallet from the 19 year old baristas at Starbucks though.
Blue/grey clutch from Fossil….$15, y’all!
Grey purse from Fossil…….I got a watch from Fossil too and a bracelet that I failed to photograph.
Dang, I spent a lot of money. I blame my aunt. She was an enabler. “Oh you’re on vacation!!” “It’s okay to treat yourself!” “Just use a credit card!” Ha!
And my most favorite purchase……
Say hello to my gold Coach bag. I heart it. She’s my new baby. I feel like a fancy pants when I tote it around.
After spending all that money, I needed alcohol! It was back to my aunt & uncle’s for a BBQ.
Would you like a margarita or a Bloody Mary? I opted for one of each. My uncle Carl was a great bartender. He made me a Bloody Mary the next morning too.

The 3 of us boozing it up!
OH OH OH…..if you live anywhere there is an HEB grocery store, BUY THIS.
Roasted Pineapple & Habanero Dip….oh, you can buy it online too. I need to do that.
Take that baby & pour it over a block of cream cheese.
Devour it with crackers. Nomnomnomnom.
Cheeseburgers. I never did figure out why one lone burger had a Kraft single and the rest had “real” cheese.
Queso & chips. Now, they dip their Nacho cheese Doritos in queso. That’s….weird, to me at least! I tried it. I’m adventurous like that. I still prefer the classic plain tortilla chip for my queso though!
After dinner, we played poker. I lost. No surprise there!
That wraps up my day of helping revive the economy with my spending!
(This recapping is fun for me! I’m getting to relive the whole trip. Not sure why I procrastinated on blogging for so long!!)
